Sportingbet is British company for sports betting and gambling. It was founded in 1997 by Mark Blandford and till today it underwent numerous structural and visual changes. Its shares are traded on the London Stock Exchange, which by itself tells us a lot about the company value and stability.
Sportingbet has wide offer of bets but we will go into this in detail later on in the text. The company has over 2.5 million registered customers from over 200 countries. It possesses large number of licenses needed for legitimate business, while out of the Balkans languages it is accessible in Croatian.
It is a very interesting company that pays an unusual amount of attention to amateur and semi-amateur players and if you belong to one of these categories you will not be disappointed with what Sportingbet has to offer.
Unlike most of other bookmakers Sportingbet doesn’t offer the Welcome Bonus, at least not to customers who use English language. Instead, it offers specific promotion named Free Bet Mania that allows you to win each day free bets up to €50, depending of your deposit.
The bonus can be earned every day and you need to play multi bet with at least two selections where neither of odds can be lower than 1.50. We can see in the following table that the bonus amount depends from the deposit.
Besides the above-mentioned bonus there are several other promotions that, depending from your knowledge and luck, can bring you significant sum of money. We will mention in the following list several promotions but in order to get familiar with all available ones we recommend to visit the bookmaker’s webpage.
– Football Predictor – This is totally free promotion and in order to win you need to predict at least 8 out of 12 selected football matches. The prize fund for the promotion is €15,000, where the winnings depend from number of predicted matches.
– Weekly Insurance – You need to collect points on sports bets and Casino games where the minimal number of point is 100. Depending from number of collected points you may win up to €500.
– Casino has different bonuses for each day. You may win free spins or money refund, where the monthly prize fund is €120,000.
– Collecting points on any slot game can bring reward of 100 free spins on game of your choice on the following day.
– Premium Club – If you are actively engaged both in sports betting and Casino games you may get invitation from VIP manager and earn exclusive bonuses and promotions.
Sportingbet has wide range of sports bets, Casino and card/virtual games. It is pointless to list all available games but in next few lines we will mention all the most important ones.
Sports betting encompass almost all. We need to highlight range of bets for football and tennis matches that are accompanied with large number of betting options, where most of available options are for live betting.
List of sports is made of two parts and in the first one are listed all more popular sports, while those less attractive can be found in the drop-down menu. When betting on various sports we would like to advise you to pay attention on above-mentioned promotions that could significantly increase your winnings.
Sportingbet has wide range of bets and you can play single, combo and system bets. Besides these most common there are several other ways to bet, and you can find them under section “Bet Types.”
The odds could have been better. Sportingbet is big and strong enough company and it should have offered better odds. We can see it clearly in the example where the profit margin is 5.6%, where the example is an attractive event, the final of the Champions League. Of course, the odds are different from event to event and we found at Sportingbet one of better odds on the market for some matches. All serious players know that odds value is very variable, which is the main reason why it is not a bad idea to have accounts at number of bookmakers in order to have the best available odds for the selected event.
Live-betting is slowly but surely taking the first spot in world of sports betting and the reason is very obvious. It is type of betting that allows you to react and change your opinion if it is necessary. Sportingbet follows the trend and offers this type of betting for large number of sports, where the stress is on football and tennis.
Sportingbet has recently added to its range of options Cash Out function that is available for live betting too and if you are satisfied with status of your bet you don’t have to wait for the event to finish and instead can take early payout.
You shouldn’t have problem to open an account at Sportingbet given that the process is mostly standardised and translated to Croatian. All what we can say is to correctly type in your data and don’t forget your user name and password.
As you can see on the following photo Sportingbet is available in over 6 languages.
Sportingbet supports several banking services for customers coming from Croatia:
– Credit/Debit Cards (Visa, MasterCard)
– Bank transfer
– Skrill (Moneybookers)
– Visa Card
– Foreign Currency Bank Account
– Skrill (Moneybookers)
Sportingbet uses SSL encryption like all other serious bookmakers which makes communication between the webpage and users fully secure.
Sportingbet possesses good gambling licenses. The most important is one issued in Malta, as it is the main operating license. Besides this one we need to mention German gambling license, which is notoriously difficult to get and is clear indicator of company’s seriousness. Besides the two very important licenses Sportingbet possesses licenses issued in couple of other countries.
Regarding taxes, we should say that customers from our country shouldn’t bother themselves with it since they DOESN’T EXIST!!!
If you need to contact Sportingbet support you can find available telephone numbers in the following photo. It is important to have at hand your ID and username in order to save some money on the telephone conversation.
Besides the telephone you can use automated e-mail form. Live Chat was not available at the time when this text was written.
Sportingbet is available as standard webpage (optimised for PC) that employs classic layout. Regarding the webpage layout we need to outline that if you access it from foreign IP addresses you will probably see a bit different design. That shouldn’t worry you as everything functions in the same way.
So, it is important from which country your IP address is as it affects the webpage layout, offered bonuses and promotions. This is also valid for Sportingbet webpage optimised for access via mobile phones.
Fans of Casino games will find plenty of fun at Sportingbet. When playing Casino games you need to play attention on bonuses and promotions as there is large number of them. Some of them are time limited and it is one more thing to pay attention to.
Serious players can enjoy in Live Casino and large number of card games. There are inevitable Blackjack, slots, Roulette and other games.
Sportingbet has Cash Out option. The option is quite logical for large and serious bookmaker and it has become almost standard offer these days. Cash out is possible to use when there is one or more unfinished games on the bet slip. This option is very interesting if you bet on several cricket matchges and you have won several bets with high odd and few were left unfinished where result is uncertain. We need to say that Cash Out is available for Live Betting too, which is not too common.
Summary of all what we have said is that Sportingbet is solid bookmaker with good licenses and it offers adequate language options to us. There is room for progress in the webpage layout and its mobile version, while the odds could have been better. Despite large number of interesting promotions we would prefer the good old Welcome Bonus that is available for customers who come from several Western European countries.
Still, choice of sports and Casino games is indeed huge and you will not be disappointed with what Sportingbet has to offer. In general, the bookmaker is more adapted to normal punters. The safety is good and you shouldn’t try to trick the system in order to avoid the account freeze.
We have left this space for your questions that will be published together with our answers. Since questions are often repeated, we will publish them sorted by subject. If you have question or subject that is not covered by the bookmaker review, please feel free to contact us.
