Full SportingBet Bookmaker Review

The average review score for Sportingbet from our customer reviews is fairly low and that is thanks to several reviewers giving Sportingbet the lowest score possible. Overall it's fair to say Sportingbet have received mixed reviews to date.

The positives about Sportingbet that came out of the reviews are some great offers for loyal customers who use Sportingbet regularly, strong customer service and a good depth of markets and in play coverage. It has also been mentioned several times that Sportingbet have an easy to use website and also a good mobile app.

There are some general themes in the criticism of Sportingbet in the reviews. First of all there are several mentions of their odds not being as good as they could be, certainly compared to some of their competitors. There are also reports of some customers being restricted by Sportingbet very soon after opening an account meaning they couldn't get any sort of bet on.

It certainly looks as though Sportingbet need to review their restriction process although the same could be said about many bookies. There is also room for Sportingbet to improve their odds but that is perhaps negated by some of the generous offers they have if you are betting with them regularly.

"Getting better and have good offers"

Reviewed: February 2014
by humphries

Sportingbet were the first bookmaker I used, and since then, the website has improved so it's easier to use than in the past. They don't offer video, the site seems to go down for maintenance more than other sites, and some games can be suspended in-play for some time, while other sites don't suspend the betting. On the plus side, they do offer great deals the more you bet with them, have a decent amount of in-play games, provide a points system where the more you bet, the more points you get. This means you can get some cash-back and perhaps enter the 'elite area' where you then have the service of a VIP manager. This area has offers such as double your stake back if you are successful with a triple bet.

I have used Sportingbet for some time now and they certainly have improved greatly in the last year or so. I get sent some good promotions and the CS team are quick to help when an issue does arise. Certainly would recommend.

Good site and app. Prices are poorer than most. Lots of markets and quick payouts. Nothing spectacular though.

"Refused Free Bet"

Reviewed: September 2012

I was refused the free bet accused of placing an arbitrage bet. I was betting on the horse racing favourite so I don't see how it could be arbitrage. A google search of "Sporting Bet Refusing Free Bets" shows other users experiencing the same problems. The seem to be wriggling out of giving anybody a free bet with the arbitrage rule. Avoid them like the plague. Stick with Paddy Power.

"Poor site - restricted immediately"

Reviewed: May 2014
by Pumpy Pig

The site is prone to freezing more than others and they restrict almost immediately to ridiculous amounts. They put odds up that are competitive, but then don't allow you to bet more than pence. Avoid.
