Sky Bet is one of the best bookies in the UK. It has relations to the Sky Sports TV Channels and as a result, carries a lot of bets tied in with the coverage that this channel provides across a massive range of sports. There is an alphabetically arranged list of sports on which betting is available on the left hand side of the screen, but Sky Bet is predominantly focused on football and horseracing as its most important markets.
Other than football and horse racing, there are some other sports that have close ties with Sky Sports and which therefore have excellent betting opportunities available with Sky Bet include American Football, Basketball, Boxing, Darts, Golf, Cricket, Tennis, Motor Sport, Tennis and Rugby. The bookie also offers betting on less popular markets including Triathlon, TV and Film, Politics, Esports and even Yachting.
Football betting is the strongest and most profitable market for any Sky Bet customer, even more so than horseracing, chiefly due to Sky Sports being the home of Premier League live coverage ever since the competition began.
Alongside horseracing, football betting dominates the home page of Sky Bet and it is easy to find betting on the major games taking place on any day of the week, or you can click on the dedicated football section in the Quick Links and A-Z menus. Once you load up a menu, you are presented with a list of fixtures including any games taking place In Play at the present moment in time. The main menu is usually listed underneath here with all the fixtures displayed and additional bets available in the All Bets section.
They also offer a wide variety of football bets on most games with usually around 100-250 available on the top matches of a weekend, with more markets being made available to bet on the closer you get to kick off time.
As a disadvantage, Sky Bet does not offer a live streaming service to its customers, apart from the live streaming of horse racing to customers that have placed a bet of £1 or more on any race taking place in the UK and Ireland.
The Sky Bet App has clearly been optimised to be used on each device differently. What this means is that it is simple to use on an iPad, but when you switch to your iPhone, the changes in presentation and style are small, but make a difference making it equally easy to use. There is the full range of bets available on the app as you get from the website and you can also access all the key promotions on the site, including Sky Bet Club.
Other complimentary apps such as Sky Bet Tracker are also well worth downloading as they enhance a mobile customers enjoyment of the site greatly. The bookie also offers Live Streaming to mobile of horse races that you have bet a minimum of £1 on in the UK and Ireland.
