About SkyBet

General Information

SkyBet is part of Sky Betting & Gaming, which includes SkyVegas, SkyCasino, SkyPoker and SkyBingo. They are owned by, you guessed it, Sky and their main headquarters is in Leeds. It was not until the early 2000s that SkyBet began to form, and it would not be until around 2006 that they made themselves known to the betting world.

Deposit & Withdrawals

SkyBet are known to be extremely swift when depositing money, with the usual Debit/Credit cards the main method of choice. PayPal is also included, but they do not allow Skrill or Neteller, unlike a growing number of other online betting companies. The minimum deposit is £5, whilst if you wish to withdraw money it is £10 minimum. Despite this, money is usually paid into your account fairly quickly, though it can prove annoying when trying to get winnings on the site after a successful bet.

Customer Service

Located on the top right-hand side of the page, SkyBet’s customer service can be access through their ‘Help’ button. Taking you a general FAQ, scrolling down reveals a ‘How to Contact Us’ section where you select a category and a drop-down menu appears to fill out with the option of ‘Call, Chat or Email’. Their phone lines are open 8am-Midnight, so not 24/7 like some others, though their live chat is available around the clock.

License Information

For customers in the UK, SkyBet licensed and regulated by the y the Gambling Commission.

Despite Skybet offers good bonuses, I didn't like neither their website, nor their live betting and live streaming

I've been playing on Skybet for 2 years and really like the website. Never had any issues with them.

Skybet website is quite decent. They offer wide selections of bets on football, horse racing and other sports. Their odds are not the best, bit not as low as on some other websites. With their 10 no deposit bonus you can try this website out and see if it's suites you or not. Honestly, I prefer Bet365 over Skybet, but if you compare to other bookies, it's not that bad. I would rate it 4/5.

SkyBet betting experience

Odds format & betting margin

SkyBet Odds can be displayed in 2 different ways: Fractions or Decimals. Most people will be used to seeing odds as fractions (e.g. 2/1) . But they can also be displayed as decimals, (e.g. 3.0)

Betting limits

SkyBet are weak here in relation to other bookmakers. Maximum amounts that can be won (excluding stake) by one customer in one day’s betting regardless of stake is £500,000 with lower maximums on less common sports.

Types of bets

Due to being one of the leading bookmakers around, SkyBet make sure to keep their odds at the top of the market. Their offerings on British-based sports, such as football, rugby, golf and horse racing are arguably the best around. Their selection of sporting events on the market is good, with football having more obscure offers including bookings, corners and amount time-added on, though the selection of bets for overseas sports can be lacking, especially with well-watched sports like the NBA, where it seems only winners and scores can be bet on. Winning bets are usually limited to £250k, as well as offering their ‘Super 6’ on Premier League scores.


Sport coverage

SkyBet have a strong sports and virtual sports coverage with 38 different types of sports to bet on. Check out an A-Z on their site.

In-play experience

SkyBet’s in-play betting is pretty much the same as most of their competitors. As detailed, their selection of bets is vast, offering pretty much anything you could want with a number of sports. However, their live streaming is what lets them down. Although not all bookmakers offer extensive live streaming, with the standouts being Bet365 and Unibet, SkyBet do not offer any live streaming except for horse racing. Considering, alongside BT Sport, their TV arm is one of the primary sports broadcasters, it means their lack of streaming is even more disappointing than others.

Live streaming

Live streaming is offered on SkyBet, but is another area where they lag behind other bookmakers. The minimum stake to watch a race or event live is £2
