Sky Bet is one of the leading on-line betting channels and boasts of having four key brands managed under the umbrella of BSkyB. These brands consist of Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Poker and Sky Bingo. They also own and manage the successful and popular Oddschecker site that enables people to see all the odds across the plethora of on-line bookmaking accounts.
They became popular from their famous marketing slogan “It matters more when there’s money on it.”They also boosted their customer base last year when they finally introduced best odds guaranteed which had been subject to various media out cries as to why they were one of the few big online presences not to do so.
Sky Bet offer one of the better sign up bonus’on the internet by giving their new customers a free £30 matched bet on completion of their first bet. Once on board they offer many concessions that keep their customers betting with them, a must in today’s competitive markets.
One of their better concessions involve placing a £50 bet over the weekend and win or lose the customer receives a free £10 bet to bet as they please during the week. Using this bet as part of their Sky Bet Club as it’s called the customer can use one of their many price boosts which can offer exceptional value during any racing day.
They are often one of the first bookies to price up in the morning and as of this year have started to follow suit with some of the “day before”bookies and although later in the evening it is possible to get on a horse the day before the race. As with any market this can offer the punter good value should they get on before any gambles appear the following morning. Their prices are competitive and are often offering the best odds coupled with their best odds guaranteed they are a must in anyone’s betting portfolio.
They offer the usual depositing methods and withdrawal is simple and straight forward. As with all bookmakers it is dependent on banking and funds can take between 3 – 5 working days to hit your account.
They have three support functions and you can contact them via e-mail, chat and phone. Unfortunately they are notoriously bad at getting hold off and disputes can be held open for a long time. It’s not clear on the site of what the contact times are via either three support functions. However to counter balance this their site and software is fully updated on a regular basis and this leads to the average customer never having to query any problems.
With a trusted brand such as Sky and all their concessions they are a must in anyone’s bookmakers portfolio.[review]
