Sportingbet has been active since 1997 and was founded by Mark Blandford. Along the way, the company has grown into a vast operation, offering a huge range of international sports betting, as well as politics and specials – including TV favourites such as X Factor (both UK and US versions), I’m a Celebrity, Strictly Come Dancing, and BBC Sports Personality of the Year. In this article I will try to explain what it is that sets Sportingbet apart from other gaming websites.
One thing that makes this site stand out immediately is the huge international choice of games offered. Here you’ll find football from all over the world, and most other sports have international leagues represented. It is football though, that really is at the heart of this site, as Wolverhampton Wanderers fans will already know from their sponsorship deals.
Another very important individual aspect of this site is the “in:play” feature. In:play betting is betting on an event while its taking place, and the site has a dedicated section which will keep you up to date with everything that is going on.
Registration on Sportingbet is easy, and once registered, there is no obligation to place a certain number of bets or to make regular deposits. You do not have to deposit any money at the time you register. Numerous currencies are accepted, and certain deposits will be credited immediately. Withdrawals will be credited to the deposit method used and will take up to 5 working days.
Should you wish to play on the move, sign up for mobile betting and benefit from the same markets, up to the minute pricing, and safe and secure deposits and withdrawals. iPhone users can download the Sportingbet app.
For any questions you have while using the site, Sportingbet offers live chat assistance, as well as a comprehensive FAQs section, and telephone numbers and email contact forms should you not be able to find the answer you are looking for.
Sportingbet also has a casino offering all the favourites, including table games, video arcade games, slots and scratch cards, and a live dealer casino emulating the real life experience. There are numerous other games, and for poker don’t forget to visit the dedicated Paradise Poker site, run by Sportingbet. There’s even a poker school for both new and existing poker players to improve your game and to help ensure you stay in the action for longer.
Another stand out feature of Sportingbet is the amount of promotions and rewards offered to players. New players can open an account and claim a £100 free bet, and join the loyalty program to earn rewards such as monthly free bets and bonuses. Casino and Paradise Poker players also benefit from sign up bonuses.
