Summary

SkyBet are part of the Sky group of companies that includes Sky Sports, the network that owns the right to most Premier League coverage in the UK.

As a result, they put a lot of money into their sports betting site and push it during live football events.

The group is a multi-million pound company and therefore the trustworthiness is high – if they get a bad reputation for SkyBet, it will have an adverse effect on the rest of their business.

The number of enhanced bets and weekly bonus make this a good place to play if you bet on football, not so much if you mainly bet on other sports.

Trustworthiness

This is our Online Sportsbook Review for SkyBet Sportsbook.

They are part of a large group of companies. They therefore need to ensure that SkyBet is run well and has a good reputation. The owners would not risk this by running a shady outfit so you have nothing to worry about in leaving your funds with them.

SkyBet Sportsbook Bonuses

The sign-up bonus is bet £5 and get £20 in free bets. This is paid out in 2 £10 bets.

They also have a weekly Sky Bet club. Simply bet £25 or more in a week at odds of 2.0 (evens) or better, and you get a free £5 bet on a Monday. Please note that you do need to opt into this promotion to receive it. You are automatically opted out if you fail to qualify 2 weeks running.

They also have regular enhanced accumulators and flash sales – better odds for a short time for certain events.

Banking

The usual methods are available at SkyBet, but not many others. Credit/Debit cards, Neteller, Skrill and Bank Transfer. Cashouts to online wallets are normally processed within 24 hours, card payments can take 2 to 3 days to show up back in your bank.

SkyBet Sportsbook Software

There are lots of options when it comes to choosing a market on SkyBet and all the menus are easy to follow. It can at times take a few clicks to drill down to the event you are looking for though.

The in-play option is quite detailed and useful in terms of the statistics available to you and they often stream live events you can watch if you have recently made a bet.

Example of In-Play:

Customer Support

There are many ways to contact SkyBet if you need some help or advice including the usual live chat, phone and email, but also via Twitter and Facebook messenger.

SkyBet is predominantly aimed at the UK market and therefore you will find that the site and support is only available in English.

License

They have 2 licenses, from the UK Gambling Commission which is understandable considering it is very UK focused, but also from Alderney which allows them to accept players from some other jurisdictions.
