Who are they?

Being associated with one of the world’s leading telecommunications companies (Sky UK), not to mention one of the major players behind the success of the English Premier League, Sky Bet are in an enviable position compared to most bookmakers, both from an access and marketing perspective. The sportsbook has further enhanced its position through ownership of the Oddschecker comparison service, the 365 Media Group and Sporting Life publication, as well as through the running of popular games such as Soccer Saturday Super 6 and Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

New Customers Only. 18+. T&Cs Apply. Wagering Requirements Apply. 

Why should I bet with this bookmaker?

If you are a customer of Sky and Sky Sports, then Sky Bet’s product is constantly marketed and bets can even be placed through interactive TV. The mobile app is among the industry leaders, there are consistently-updated offers and price boosts, a wide selection of betting options, and some of the best odds on the market. Not much to not like really.

Why shouldn’t I bet with this bookmaker?

Unsurprisingly, this bookmaker is UK and Ireland-centred, so the scope of international markets can be slightly disappointing. Also there are no Neteller and Moneybookers E-wallet deposit/withdrawal  options offered, and plenty of reports exist online of successful accounts being restricted, although this cannot be verified by this review.

Other noteworthy specials

The free Sky Bet Soccer Saturday Super 6 competition is an incredibly popular prediction game where 6 correct scores could land you £250,000, but this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to specials and offers available on the sportsbook. As well as regular price boosts (which are advertised clearly on the site next to the event) here is a list of just some of the current offers and promotions available;

The Sky Bet club enables customers who bet at least £25 a week (at greater odds than 2.00 / evens) to receive a free £5 bet (opt in option).

Best Odds Guaranteed on British and Irish horse racing.

Extra places paid out at major events such as The Masters and Grand National.

Regular enhanced accas.

Cash out bonuses when you cash out your bet.

 

Sports and markets available

31 sports listed as well as a number of virtual sports, Esports, politics and TV and entertainment specials (for example, you make a Game of Thrones-themed bet on who will ultimately rule Westeros). Unashamedly the sportsbook is UK and Ireland focused, so the markets offered on popular sports there are second-to-none, and especially on events such as the English Premier League (and all other British and Irish leagues), UK and Irish horse racing, and other domestic competitions and sports such as the Aviva Premiership and Guinness Pro 12 (rugby), Gaelic Games, cricket, darts and greyhound racing.

 

Special features

As well as the many additional games already mentioned, the sportsbook has all the special features you would expect of a product which has the full-backing of one of the world’s largest live TV sports providers. As well as unrivalled results, fixtures and live-score services, there are stats, predictions, tips, previews and reviews galore, as well as countless top-quality articles provided by Sporting Life which is under the Sky umbrella. You could spend a lot of time exploring, and it would be worth it as it’s a sports fans’ paradise.

 

Support Functions

The help section is second-to-none (support.skybet.com/app/home), and as you would expect from such a famous brand there are all the usual options of phone, email and live chat available in what is an effective customer service approach. English is the only option offered on the platform though.

 

Payment Options

All major credit and debit cards, the Neteller and Moneybookers E-wallets and PayPal are available.

 

Verdict

4.5/5Sky Bet is officially an award-winning bookmaker and it’s not hard to see why with its combination of great odds, in-play options, special offers, numerous features and depth of UK/Ireland-focused markets. It just loses something as a for its failure to be quite as thorough when it comes to alternative markets.
