Sky Bet was created in 2002 following BSkyB’s purchase and rebrand of small telephone and online sports betting based company, Surrey Sports. Sky Bet is currently owned by Flutter Entertainment, with its sportsbook operated by Bonne Terre Limited. Regulation is carried out by the Uk Gambling Commission and Alderney Gambling Control Commission for customers located outside of the UK.
Despite having no high street presence, Sky Bet can be easily accessed through their website and apps (both Sky Bet and Sky Sports), telephone and even through the television for Sky customers when watching events. As well as sponsoring the English Football League (EFL), Sky Bet advertises heavily on TV.
The bookmaker offers over 40 sports and non-sports markets combined, including opportunities to bet on esports and politics. A popular feature for football betting is Request-A-Bet where you can ask for singles to be combined into one big price which Sky Bet will then place on their website. Streaming is also available through Sky Bet player, where you can watch up to 6 live streamed events at the same time, although some events require you to place a bet first.
The website’s promotions tab shows all available offers and value view which tracks all offers received so far. Sky Bet’s sign up promotion is very enticing, providing £30 in free bets when you bet a minimum of 5p.
Sky Bet has numerous markets available including draw no bet, goalscorers and in-play bets and great odds. They also offer boosts or enhanced prices every day on certain sports.
