I have known about Sportingbet for many years and know them as one of the better sports betting sites who has moved on to be a fully-serviceable gaming site. When I noticed the added gaming options, I was immediately keen to join and give things a go and was pleased with my overall experience. The nice side to this is that Sportingbet remains popular and continues to grow through game development on this site with their latest addition being a live casino.

Sportingbet, while solid in many ways, does disappoint when it comes to promotions and bonuses, and this is something that, if they wish to remain competitive in an ever-changing gaming environment, will need to change. This is especially true when comparing them to other established brands that place a stronger emphasis on promotions. Yet, that does not take away from the value they offer punters as the real focus should always be on the odds and sports that one can place bets on, not minimal bonuses that overall have little effect on your bankroll.

Bonus, Offers & Promo Codes

Sportingbet currently offer a deposit bonus up to £50 with a minimum £10 cash deposit. You are rquired to stake a minimum amount in the region of £200 so its not a clear bonus like some other. See below for full terms and conditions.

£50 Sports Welcome Bonus

  • Join today
  • Place a sports bet of £10 or more at odds of 1.5 or greater
  • Get up to £50 in bonus funds

Bonus 1:
To qualify for the first bonus, players must make a deposit and make a sport bet of £10 or more. The bonus credited will be £10.

Bonus 2:
To qualify for the second bonus, players must have qualified for the initial bonus. The bonus credited will be equal to the average stake made over the first 5 bets; ie if 5 £20 bets are made the bonus will be £20. The minimum bet required on each qualifying stake is £10.

Bonus 3:
To qualify for the third bonus, players must have qualified for the initial two bonuses. The bonus credited will be equal to the average stake made over the first 10 bets; ie if 10 £20 bets are made the bonus will be £20. The minimum bet required on each qualifying stake is £10.

The site also features on-going promotions such as price boosts and Enhanced Accas, but that is it sports wise. However the casino does have daily promotional bonuses for depositors, yet overall, the promotions and bonuses offered rather lack creativity, and one is left feeling as if they are in place only so there is something versus nothing.

Sportingbet has been catering to sports betting punters for nearly 20 years and been part of a handful of sites that helped to shape what was, at the time of their inception, a new industry. Known for their odds, they are a recognisable brand that has a loyal following with punters worldwide.

Inplay & Cashout

Sportingbet offers in-play betting on the top football, tennis and match based sports betting services. Its under the live betting section of the site and also fall in each section of each category – like football for example. Its a little basic and doesn’t overwhelm, but does what it needs to do in providing users with inplay odds.

Cashout is available on some single and multiple markets, but you’ll need to check this once you’ve placed a bet. You can filter down your betslips once bets are placed and check out those bets that have cashout available.

The Website

The Sportingbet website, at least in our option is somewhat lacklustre and could do with a serious overhaul and modernisation. What bothers us when seeing an established site that does not make upgrades to its appearance is that they have become a little stagnant and feel that their reputation is enough to keep people coming through their virtual door per say.

Owned by Headlong Ltd. Casinos and established in 1998, it is licensed by the Danish Gambling Authority, the UK Gambling Commission and the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. This is always good to see and shows those behind its operations are legitimate and serious about adhering to responsible gaming and following within its licensing restrictions/regulations.

One nice touch to Sportingbet is the sheer volume of different currencies it accepts. Australian/Canadian/Hong Kong/Singapore and U.S dollar deposits are accepted, as are British pounds and Euros, For other punters who live outside of those countries, Indonesian rupees, Hungarian forints, Japanese yen, Denmark kronor, Swedish kroner and Swiss francs can be chosen as a preferred currency. The site is offered in more than 16 languages and available via instant play, mobile and download software.

Mobile & App

The Sporting bet mobile apps fail to meet expectations as there is an Android app only or the sportsbook and casino. This fails miserably in an age where mobile gaming accounts for over 60% of business for most gaming sites and not including other device compatible apps is a real let down.

While the apps fail the grade, the access they afford for Android users does not as it gives access to each of the different areas that the sports betting sites offer. The casino app does the same and includes all games that its online counterpart offers.

Customer Service

While its customer care facility has limited methods of contact, its help centre is one of the more extensive I have seen online with answers to a massive library of questions. This touches on far more than your average topics such as promotions, games, registration etc., but includes information on the different gaming options, legal, security, payments, points and responsible gaming. However, those who need to contact support can do so via email or one of the available telephone numbers.
