If you’re new to the realm of Sportingbet, then this site is ready to offer you a mouth-watering deal when you sign up to the site.

To qualify for this offer all you need to do is complete the registration process then make a deposit of at least £10. Once you have placed a bet of £10 or more at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or greater, you will receive £10 back as bonus cash. To then be able to withdraw any winnings made via this bonus, you will need to wager it three times over at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or more.

Once you completed the first bonus arrangements, you become eligible for a second bonus, this time worth a maximum of £20. You need to deposit and wager at least 5 x £10 in order to be awarded your second bonus. The bonus awarded will be your average stake over your first five bets.

After bonus number two comes bonus number three. This is the same as bonus number two except that it is the average of your first TEN bets at the site, as opposed to five. You need to make at least ten minimum £10 bets in order to qualify for your third bonus, and the maximum bonus awarded is £20.

Over your three bonuses, the maximum amount in total you can be awarded is that £50 we mentioned above. You have fourteen days from the completion of your registration in order to complete all requirements and be eligible for all three bonuses. Note that if you fund your account for these initial bets using an eWallet provider such as Skrill, Neteller or PayPal you will not be eligible for any bonuses.

There are ongoing deals for regular customers at Sportingbet too, especially if you’re the type of sports bettor whom enjoys accumulators. If you place at least five acca bets of £5 or more using the Sportingbet mobile app, you will receive a £10 free bet. In addition, if any acca you place has a minimum of five selections and just one of your selections lets you down, then you will have your stake refunded, albeit as a free bet.

Live sports betting and early cash-out are both available.

Site Design

You might feel a little blue while using the Sportingbet site, but probably just because the site is predominately that shade! It’s the usual case of menus on the left, items of interest on the right and the most popular events in the middle.

Preference is given to upcoming events, current live events, football, horse racing and tennis, but finding other markets upon which to wager is never too difficult at this site. It’s a very easy-to-use entry-level site which seasoned gamblers are likely to find rewarding too.

Naturally, there’s an equally effective version of this site available for mobile users.

Cashier options

This site is happy to accept all major credit and debit cards, including all brands issued by Visa and MasterCard. It also accepts a wide range of alternative payment options, including Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, Paysafecard, ecoPayz, EntroPay, Sofort and Trustly.

You can set your own deposit limits at the site – always handy if you feel you are spending a little too much on your sports betting. Deposits are processed instantly. Withdrawals should take between three and five days (quicker if you are withdrawing to an eWallet). The minimum withdrawal accepted is £10, and there are no maximums.


Sportingbet really does its best to cover all bases, and there’s plenty on offer here for both sports betting newbies and those experienced at wagering on their favourite sporting markets. There’s plenty of coverage on all sports – not just the most popular ones – and moving your money around is also no problem given the amount of cashier methods that are available.

An excellent site made even better by the lure of that £50 first deposit(s) bet bonus!
