SportingBet was founded in 1997 by Mark Blandford. Headquartered in London, they are now part of the GVC Holdings group, after a 2012 takeover that also involved William Hill and saw Hills buy out Sportingbet’s Australian and Spanish operations. Sportingbet has more than 2.5million registered customers across 200 countries, and claims over 1m bets are placed with them every day. They have also regularly been shirt sponsors of a number of football clubs, the most famous of which is perhaps Wolverhampton Wanderers, though Sportingbet’s name has also been carried in Bulgaria, Romania and Greece.
Deposit & Withdrawals
As expected, they offer the standard payment methods available to bookmakers online these days. Visa/Credit cards being the main port of call, though the ever-popular PayPal is also included, alongside Neteller and Skrill. There are no fees with any of the deposit methods, though there is a minimum deposit, as well as withdrawal. Sometimes transactions may take a little while, but not beyond the expected time frame of three to five days.
The experience for customers is usually high rated at SportingBet, with ease of contact the main draw-in. The ‘Help & Contact Us’ button is combined in the website’s header next to the search bar. Upon clicking, a pop-up window is displayed, so do be aware to have this enabled. Although the live chat link is covered by the search bar in the pop-up, simply extending the browser gives the correct formatting. As well as live chat, telephone and email is also an option, with the former available in five other countries including Canada, Finland and Singapore, though only from 10am to 8.30pm.
Customers in the United Kingdom: Sportingbet is licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission. License number is 1772.

Types of bets
A little above their competitors, SportingBet usually offers better value on British sports such as football, though be prepared for less kind odds in other sports across the globe. Their basketball odds, as an example, are ones you could probably find much better with other websites. This is also the case with American Football. On the other hand, with some of their other markets, their odds are some of the best around, so do scan the entirety of the website to find what suits you as a better. Their social media also updates odds throughout the day so keep an eye on that as well.
Sporting Bet cover 34 different sports within their online sports betting portal. The main betting offers are within horse racing, football, tennis, cricket and basketball.
This is where SportingBet shines – in particular areas at least. Their live streaming may not be as polished as some of the pioneers of the feature but they have caught up with their competitors in hindsight. Football and tennis seem to be the go-to options in this regard, covering the usual events in these sports but also a little outside the box with the latter when WTA and ATP competitions come to town. The live options are probably Sportingbets’ best selling points.
