Sky Bet Review
Sky Bet were born out of BSkyB television the cable sports operator who are most well known for their Tv rights in the UK for footballs Premier League and lower leagues along with the majority of the most viewed sports in the UK. Sky Bet were only established in 2002 but have come on leaps and bounds since then winning many awards along the way.
Sky Bet are still one of the only sports betting operators in the UK that are based online and do not have any high street outlets and they concentrate mainly on advertising on their own Tv channels to enhance their business, mainly sky sports. Along with their sports betting website they now have Sky Vegas which is an online casino, Sky Bingo and Sky Poker.
Refer A Friend - Sky Bet do not currently run a refer a friend scheme.
Sky Bet Website
Sky Bet has improved over time with their software and are now on a par with most online betting sites. The design is very simple and effective and it's one of the easiest to navigate. Using their left menu bar as the main menu and although they have the top right menu bar for their other websites it's not in your face and I like that. Centre screen holds all the current events with any promotions and below is the live IN-PLAY betting. I do like the fact they leave the side channels on their website alone and place their other promo's and tools etc at the bottom of the screen. These are their if your'e looking but not in your'e face if your not.
Sky Bet has linked up with Sporting Life for excellent racing form and analysis making their form section one of the best on the market. Its design is awesome just click on the runner in question and the recent form along with video form is there for you to get your teeth stuck into.
