Skybet

Skybet has provided odds and betting online since 1998, which makes them a bit of a bookmaker pioneer in online sports betting. They have had different names and merged with smaller bookies, but today Skybet is established as one of the biggest on the market and their selection of bets on cycling confirms this. As a British bookmaker they have exciting bets for British sports and the some great odds for Premier League betting.

37 Categories of sports, fantasy and tips

On skybet.com you’ll find quite a decent selection of sports betting with around 37 different sports and categories such as betting on politics and Film/TV. But where Skybet really has a great product is their extra betting promotions and offers – these include an intriguing Fantasy Football, a Super 6 competition, where you can predict the score of six games for the weekend and win great prices. Lastly Skybet also have free betting tips from experts such as Jaime Redknapp, Rob Lee and Sir Ian Botham.

20 GBP free bet and weekly sports bonuses

Skybet offers a generous free bet of 20 GBP when placing your first bet of 5 GBP. The British bookie also runs betting boost campaigns where they give up excellent quotes on special bets for the weekend as well as a Skybet Club where bettors can get a 5 GBP freebet a week. Skybet provides plenty of betting bonuses and promos to take advantage of their great sportsbook – which offers great selection of betting on all kinds of sports. 

Good mobile site for live betting

Skybets website is optimized for smartphone and tablets, but their usability leaves a bit lacking for the experienced mobile punter. It’s great for live betting and the live games are featured on the first page, but if you need to find specific sports bets it’s not as straight forward as it could be. At the time of writing Skybet doesn’t have an app for their sportsbook, but they have a Skybet tracker app where punters can manage their bets and use the cash out function as well. Generally Skybets mobile and tablet offers are no more than a mediocre betting app compared to the rest of the bookies.

Limited payment methods

Skybet is a British bookmaker and therefore they accept sports betting with the most common payment methods in on the English speaking islands such as Visa Credit, Debit and Electron, Maestro and Mastercard as well as Laser and PayPal. It should be possible to find a suitable method for deposit and withdrawal on Skybet, but experienced punters will miss the oppertunity to bet with E-wallets such as Neteller.

Few nations are accepted

Skybet is strictly regulated by the British Gambling Authority, so they do not accept customers from all countries. The ones that are accepted are the United Kingdom, Ireland, Finland, Channel Islands and Gibraltar. Punters from other countries will have to check out one of the other bookies we have here to place their bets with. Skybet costumer service on telephone is available from 8 am to 10 pm, but their on-site usability and makes it difficult to connect with Skybet costumer service. But they have a 24 hr. live chat, which will be better for urgent issues and an e-mail service for any other issue. 

Great website and wide range of cycling bets

At the first sight of Skybet’s website, you might think that you have stumbled upon Sky News. All though Skybets website does have familiar traits to Sky Sports, you are in for a much more engaging experience when betting with Skybet. Sports betting on Skybet is vast and you can select between many different bets - not just the football, tennis and golf. Skybets website is easy to use and their betting offers and promotions make it a great bookmaker to place your bets on sports. Their betting options make it up for a mediocre mobile betting experience, but the bookie still comes short of a perfect score.
