Who are they?

Another high-profile British bookmaker, Sportingbet, founded in 1997, is currently part of the GVC Holdings group of brands which also includes bwin and partypoker. Licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, this sportsbook is a familiar name on the British betting scene.

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

Why should I bet with this bookmaker?

With occasionally among the best odds on the market, this is a sportsbook which appeals especially to casual punters with its simple approach to the provision of a fulfilling wagering experience. With a distinct UK focus, the book has a fine section of sports and markets, and importantly offers the cash-out function on its in-play bets. There are stats and live scores to support the experience, but really what you will find here is positive ‘no frills’ approach.

Why shouldn’t I bet with this bookmaker?

The platform itself is a little rustic to say the least, and certainly lacks the sophistication of many competitors. The list of promotions can certainly be frequently bettered, there is no a lot going on in the form of special features (there’s no live streaming for example), and younger customers may find the approach a little old-fashioned with regards to lack of visuals.

Current Sign-up bonus

New customer three-stage betting bonus of up to £50 (UK and Ireland only)

(A three-stage bonus in which first bonus of up to £10 is secured though an initial bet of minimum £10, with further bonuses of up to £20 each time secured after the  first five bets and the subsequent five bets).

How to activate the sign-up bonus

  1. Open a new customer account.
  2. Make an initial deposit of at least £10.
  3. Bet a minimum of £10 on any sports event.
  4. Once a customer qualifies for the initial bonus, the second bonus will match the average stake of the first five sports bets made on the platform.
  5. Once a customer qualifies for the first two parts of the bonus, the third part of the bonus will match the stake of the first ten bets made on the platform.
  6. Players will only qualify for all three parts of the bonus if the staking requirements are met within 14 days of each other.

Other noteworthy specials

Accumulator insurance is offered on 5+ selections where one selection fails (up to £25).

Sports and markets available

With a UK approach, it is no surprise that football and horse racing are the most heavily featured sports here. With well in excess of 100 markets available on the bigger football matches, and excellent in-play markets to boot, Sportingbet rarely lets customers down, either on PC or on mobile or tablet, when it comes to providing competitive, responsive and numerous markets on the biggest British events. In addition there are sports such as MMA and pool to supplement the more common favourites of cricket, boxing, tennis, snooker and golf, and there are also special events and virtual sports.

Special features

The statistics and livescore features are incredibly useful, and are easily accessible from various points on the site (beside an ongoing event for example) but along with the all-important cash-out feature, that’s all you will find here in terms of anything ‘special.’

Support Functions

Visiting the help section (www.sportingbet.com/help/?buttonId=573D0000000KzRNwill bring up all the usual methods of phone, email and live chat.

Payment Options

All the favourites are here including bank transfer, Visa, Mastercard, E-wallets in the form of Neteller and Skrill, as well as PayPal and more.

Verdict

4/5 – Old-fashioned. Solid. Reliable. Whether you deem these attributes to be positive or not, there is no doubting that Sportingbet delivers an effective sportsbook that makes a lot of people very happy.
