Description (Our Opinion)

After a redesign in 2005, Sky Bet has emerged as one of the most competitive sportsbooks specifically targeting the UK marketplace. The redesign coincided with the launch of Sky Poker and the creation of Sky's mobile betting platform.

As things evolved, the Sky Vegas TV channel was launched and now punters from all over the UK can tune in to live online poker games broadcast on their digital cable boxes. Live betting is also a chief focus of Sky Bet and they have designed their site so that the current in-play markets are always visible.Also, you are never more than a click away from exclusive Skybet free bets and promotions.

Sky had been considered at the forefront of English sports broadcasting for many years and their involvement with certain sports, the Barclay's English Premier League, specifically are viewed as landmarks in the world of football. While some would consider Sky Bet to be a latecomer to the online betting industry, Sky has also been able to make some calculated moves into different wagering markets and their Sky Bingo site is the most recent addition.

They are a publically-traded company and adhere to all of the responsibilities required of a top English corporation. They are also licensed and regulated within the UK.

Sky Bet is part of the extremely high profile Sky Network and serves as the launching point for many of their sports-related advertising campaigns. The site is extremely thorough, in terms of betting markets, and the odds are by and large quite solid.

The site is easy to navigate and their redesign a few years ago has made the site significantly more appealing and, also, a much simpler and more streamlined betting operation. You are always just one click away from betting and they have also ensured that the current live betting markets are displayed on every page. Great idea.

Since the site's focus is primarily on UK-related events, you will generally find significantly more appealing odds for UK, Scottish and Irish events than you will find on continental ones. Football is clearly one of the main focuses of the site, but you will still find plenty of other things to wager on, should that suit your fancy.

Sky Bet offers a number of different ways to wager and they boast one of the most dedicated telephone betting systems in the world. While their WAP-enabled mobile betting may be a bit dated, it remains very effective and is a sturdy platform. The site can also be optimized for people with visual impairments and it even has a little button to press when your boss walks by at work so he thinks you're focusing on spreadsheets instead of setting spreads yourself on upcoming football matches.
