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.
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.
