Who are they?
An Asian bookmaker with a big reputation (voted Asian operator of the year in 2009 and 2010), SBOBET offer competitive odds which are often only bettered by Pinnacle amongst the major sportsbooks, and are an Asian Handicap betting specialist. In operation since 2004, SBOBET is licensed both on the Isle of Man and in the Phillipines.
SBOBET is an Asian handicap and over/under bettors paradise, with a customisable interface which allows customers to keep track and take advantage of fluctuating odds movements (guaranteeing best odds), and also provides customers with live streaming options. Minimum and maximum bet amounts are always listed on events and limits are high by European standards.
Why shouldn’t I bet with this bookmaker?
As with most Asian bookmakers, there are no fractional odds offered, if this is your preferred system, while with minimum bets of €7, this may not be a good option for smaller players. The live betting options are impressive, but small delays in placing bets are common, although most punters will find no issue here. The number and range of sports offered is not industry-leading, but again the options should more than suffice for the vast majority of bettors.
Current Sign-up bonus
Signing up with SBOBET will currently bag you a 15% bonus on deposits up to €200.
