Sky Bet Review

Skybet Review

If you’ve got Sky TV then you‘ll know that Sky don’t do thing by halves and that their customer support is second to none. The same goes with the betting arm of the organisation, Sky Bet and they are one of the most trustworthy bookmakers around. Sky Bet doesn’t have any high street shops which may not be pleasing to some but they offer bets over the phone in addition to their internet service.

Sky Bet like to promote their next manager markets and usually have some good prices on these but they offer a wide range of markets including some bets you won’t find with other big bookmakers like ‘win a set’ in tennis. They also cover some TV Live betting such as X Factor Live Finals, Big Brother and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Very simple uncluttered website

The Sky Bet website is very well designed, uncluttered and easy to find the sporting events you are looking for. One of the main draws for a lot of punters is that the minimum bet is only 5p. This allows you to trial any kind of systems or theories you might have for small amounts of money.

The minimum deposit is also only £5 with the minimum withdrawal being £10. All the major payment methods are accepted like Visa Credit, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Maestro, Solo, Skrill/Moneybookers, Laser, Neteller and PayPal. Withdrawals are reasonable and take between 2 and 5 working days.

Now offer best odds guaranteed

A recent improvement to Sky Bet is that they now offer best odds guaranteed on horse racing which has pleased many a racing fan. The only downside to Sky Bet s is they aren’t best price regularly on a lot of other markets like football but they are always pretty close and do offer stand out odds on certain events.

In addition to the sporting side Sky Bet also has Sky Poker, Sky Vegas and Sky Bingo. You can get £20 completely free on Sky Poker and Sky Bingo just for signing up. No deposit is required and it’s well worth taking advantage of this. Sky Vegas has some really good features too with the slots section in particular proving very popular.

Super 6 free to play

Another attractive thing about Sky Bet is the Soccer Saturday Super 6 game. It’s free to enter and you need to predict the correct scores of the six games that they choose. Points are awarded for each correct prediction you can win £100,000 if you predict all 6 correctly. There is also a guaranteed £5,000 on a weekly basis to the highest points scorer.

£30 free bet and £5 each week

Sky Bet now offer a very attractive bonus in the form of a £30 free bet and this is currently one of the best sign up offers around. In addition to this both new and existing members are eligible to receive a free £5 bet as a member of the free bet club. To qualify you just need to place a £5 accumulator with a combined odds of 5/1 (any sport) or more before midnight each Sunday. Your free bet credited by 7pm Monday but if you miss a week you are out of the club and you need to place a £10 accumulator to get back in.
