Everyone has heard of Sky TV (officially BSkyB), the largest provider of subscription television in the UK. Not everyone knows, however, that Sky has also provided online betting and gambling services since 2002. A popular service, SkyBet has been heavily advertised in the past few years, leading to a large increase in users and its gradual expansion within the competitive online gaming and gambling market. SkyBet is partnered with SkyVegas, SkyPoker and SkyBingo, forming a powerhouse of online gaming and gambling that will no doubt please even the most avid of online gamers.
As you would expect from a brand like Sky, SkyBet is remarkably easy to use and makes placing bets extremely simple – even if you have never done so before. Customers can use the great betting interface to find out the odds on offer on particular sports and events (and can also search for odds using the bet search feature which allows users to find odds at any time by searching for players, sports, events, teams and more) and then use the fantastic bet-slip technology to actually place their bets.
Live ‘in-game’ betting, as has become common at many online sportsbooks we have reviewed here, is also on offer, providing customers with an opportunity to exploit changes in odds that occur as a match or event progresses. Not only does this increase potential winnings on offer, it also adds to the overall excitement of placing bets on sports matches. Finally, users can also enjoy betting on-the-go (or at work, the gym or, indeed, anywhere!) using SkyBet’s excellent mobile service. Finally, the betting calculator, racing form and stats sections gives players all of the information they need to place great bets.
As with many online sportsbooks, SkyBet offers new and existing customers an exciting range of promotions, bonuses and special offers that help their funds go a little further. New players can enjoy a £10 free bet when they join SkyBet and make their first deposit, while existing users can go on to enjoy a wide and generous collection of promotions and special offers throughout the course of their membership with the site. SkyBet is also known for its frequent and generous managers specials which coincide with major sporting events around the world (many of which are covered on Sky’s many sports channels), helping your bets on these events go a little further.
Although SkyBet doesn’t quite make it to the top of our top ten in this category, even a place in the listings in this competitive category proves that this betting service has something to offer its players. With a range of promotions, special offers and bonuses, and a simple to use interface that makes placing bets easy, we’re sure many of our readers will be excited to give SkyBet a try. If everything you’ve read here has you ready to open your wallet and place a bet, why not sign up at SkyBet and pick up your free bet.
