Sky Bet Bookmaker Review
Read our expert review of Skybet and the assessment of Skybet in all key aspects of online bookmakers that are essential for a modern, professional and sound online football betting bookmaker. That includes betting markets offered, odds, their website, in-play (live) betting opportunities, quality of customer service and promotions.
Skybet OddsIt's clear that soccer is the specialist sport for Sky Bet, who offer some very tight margins on the big football leagues. Indeed, for any competition such as the Premier League, Champions League and Primera Liga, you will get excellent prices due to the fact that Sky happen to be broadcasting them. If you want to place a Premier League accumulator, you will nearly always get the best multiple odds with this firm, which indicates that they provide value across the board.
It appears that Sky Bet have 105% margins on the big matches and they will regularly take on the favourite in a match. You will also find great odds on First Goalscorer, Draw No Bet and Half-Time Full-Time, although they are the sort of company that might restrict your stake if you happen to get on a winning run. Odds for golf, cricket, rugby union and horse racing are also pretty strong.
Payment methods: Comfortable, but not excessively fastSky Bet offers relatively few payment methods. Among others, you will find VISA, MasterCard, Skrill, PayPal and Neteller. The deposits are booked very quickly, as a rule within a few seconds. Withdrawals are carried out with the same method used for deposits by default. It is possible though, to change the withdrawal method without any problems. This is not by far the case of all online bookmakers.
This is why this option appealed to us. For example, it is possible to make a deposit by credit card and then to have winnings paid out by Neteller. For withdrawals, the customer must wait around 2-5 days before receiving money. At least the payout time is indicated clearly. If nothing else, the high transparency concerning deposits and withdrawals proves that fraud at Sky Bet is very unlikely. We also liked the fact that PayPal is included in the payment portfolio, which is known for its very strict requirements.
