About Sky Bet

Sky Bet was formed in July 2000 when BSkyB acquired Sports Internet Group, which itself was comprised of three separate companies – Opta Index, Planet Football and Surrey Sports bookmaker.  These were all rebranded a couple of years later to create Sky Bet.

Fast forward to 2006 and Sky Bet secured two more UK-based online bookmakers in TotalBet and UKBetting, after which BSkyB also bought the 365 Media Group.

In March 2015 Sky sold a majority stake in the company for £800 million to CVC Capital Partners.  Sky retained a 20% stake in the company and agreed to a long-term licence of the Sky brand.

Sky Bet clearly benefits from its close association with Sky Sports broadcasting, with particular emphasis on Premier League football.  That, in turn, does much to promote the Sky Bet brand on TV and the website.  

Sky Bet is very strong when it comes to bonuses and promotions and they certainly don’t forget their existing customers (they give over £2.8million per month in Free Bets to Sky Bet Club customers alone).

Mobile & Apps

The Sky Bet sports betting app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.  The app can be installed by visiting Sky Bet’s download page on the site.  It all works very smoothly and is very easy to navigate.

You can also sign up for all the Sky Bet Free Bets via your mobile platforms.

There is also a Sky Bet Twitter page that lets customers sign up for the latest odds and sports news to be sent to their mobile devices.

Some of the features that the Sky Bet mobile app provides include Touch ID, which allows customers to log into their Sky Bet App quickly and securely using your fingerprint.  

There is also Apple Pay, with Sky Bet being the first bookmaker that enables the customer to pay funds with one-touch deposits to their Sky Bet account using Apple Pay.

For new customers, the Sky Bet app £20 Free Bet Welcome Bonus is also available when you make an initial deposit and bet of just £5.

Deposit methods

There are many of the usual methods available to Sky Bet customers when it comes to funding their accounts, with Visa Credit, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Maestro, Solo and PayPal all available.

The minimum deposit is permitted is £5, which is a figure that should be affordable to most pockets.  There is no fee charged for making any deposit, although there is always the possibility of certain banks applying a surcharge should they class any deposit as a ‘cash’ transaction.

Withdrawing funds back to your account is also very straightforward and should be completed within 2 to 5 working days depending on the method used.  The minimum withdrawal is £10 or currency equivalent.

There is no charge for withdrawals to UK debit or credit cards or to international Visa cards if issued in non-restricted countries.

When it comes to the security of your personal details, Sky Bet uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your information during any transaction.  

Customer service

There is a wide variety of comprehensive customer service options on hand at Sky Bet, available 24/7 and via all the usual methods one would expect.

Telephone support is on hand at 0844 241 1411 or 0330 024 4777, while you can e-mail Sky Bet at: [email protected].

There is a Twitter option at @SkyBetHelp and, probably best of all, there is also a 24/7 Live Chat option available via the site.

There is also a FAQ option on the site that can often answer more general queries.

Nominations and awards

It’s been an excellent few months for Sky Bet in terms of industry recognition of late, with the bookmaker being nominated for and picking up several notable awards recently.

Sky Bet was recently named the GIA Sports Betting Operator of the Year for 2016, a prestigious award from the highly respected Gaming Intelligence site.

Although they just missed out on the top award to bet365, Sky Bet were also ‘Highly Commended’ after being nominated for the SBC Bookmaker of the Year Award for 2016.  Although they missed out there, Sky Bet did win the award for the Best Football Bookmaker and their sister brand, Oddschecker, retained their Affiliate of the Year Award.
