Aside from the free bets, Sky Bets also offers numerous other promotions including the Best Odds Guarantee within all Irish and UK Horse Races. If you place a bet and the odds happen to increase before the event starts, you will be paid the higher odds if it wins so you don’t miss out. Suddenly, your chance of making a profit increases. Additionally, Sky Bets also boasts the Super 6 from Soccer Saturday which is a free online game. After six matches are chosen, you must correctly predict the results from each game to win £250,000. If nobody correctly guesses all six, the person closest can win £5,000.
In terms of the Sky Bets website, it looks good, is easy-to-use, and will have you betting in no time. Just as you would expect from such a large company, they offer markets on various sports from Golf to Football and Horse Racing to Tennis. As well as betting beforehand, the in-play markets will have you betting after the event has started with competitive odds.
If all this isn’t enough, Sky Bets is also known for ‘Price Boost’ which is where certain events or occurrences within an event receive a boost in their prices. Often, the difference will be significant and you have a chance to win money on events that aren’t necessarily unlikely to occur.
To make things even easier, Sky Bets have their own mobile application but it is only available for those using an Apple device. Once again, it is incredibly easy to navigate so you can view the sportsbook, see special offers, cash out, or view the in-play markets within seconds. Overall, Sky Bets is one of the only bookies that offer the cash out option on mobile so this is a big advantage of choosing the company.
Aside from sports, you will also see Casino, Bingo, Vegas, and Poker on the site which means that you can even have fun on the rare occasion of their being little sport to bet on. As you can see, the options are endless with Sky Bets and they have made the betting experience easier than ever before with a sublime website and application that matches. Even after this, their customer service levels are also supreme so you will receive help if you happen to run into any problems or just have questions.
History – Originally, it was BskyB who acquired Sports Internet Group but 2002 saw the complete rebranding to Sky Bets. Based in the UK, they have their headquarters in West Yorkshire and have been licensed by all the appropriate bodies including the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. Essentially, this means that betting with the site is entirely safe and secure. Just a couple of years ago, Sky Bets actually had the majority of its stake sold from Sky to CVC Capital Partners. In the deal, around £600 million was paid from one to the next and Sky kept hold of around 20% of the business.
