Sportnation.bet is a slick-looking online sports book that's powered by Argyll Entertainment AG. It's a 2017 newcomer to the ever-expanding world of online sports books.
50% up to £500 Bonus! Use Code: SNATION500 (T&Cs apply)
This fresh and easy-to-use site is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, so all UK-based sports bettors are free to lay their bets here. Argyll Entertainment also ran 'Bet on Brazil', the sports book endorsed by former Ipswich Town, Manchester United and Scotland striker turned media pundit, Alan Brazil.
You can boost your initial deposit at this sports book thanks to the extremely generous welcome bonus that is on offer here. This is a matched deposit bonus of fifty percent of your initial deposit, up to a maximum of £100.
To claim this bonus you must register with Sportnation.bet and type in the promotion code SN100 when you are told to do so. Once you've done that you're free to make a deposit – if you want the bonus you'll need to deposit at least £20. You can deposit as much as you like, but the maximum bonus amount you can claim is £100.
You must then place bets (singles or accumulators only, no system bets) totalling seven times the value of your bonus and deposit before you are able to withdraw any part of your bonus or any funds from it. All qualifying bets must have minimum odds of evens (2.00) and you must place these bets within thirty days of obtaining your bonus. If you don't within the allotted time frame then your bonus will be withdrawn.
This bonus is only valid for UK-based customers.
This currently is the only bonus that Sportsnation.bet runs. This site does, however, have an associated casino attached, so you are free to enjoy a little slots or table game action alongside your sports betting. There's a live casino available too. The casino does not have a specific bonus tied to it, unfortunately.
Live, in-play betting and cash-out are both available
There's the ideal word available to describe the style of the site at Sportnation.bet, and that word is concise. We're pretty finicky about how we like our sports betting sites to look, and with just one look this site gave us a warm, glowing feeling in our bellies.
The set-up could hardly be better – extremely useful menus on the left, all the current events and big match events in the centre, with your betting slip and more details concerning what's currently happening in the world of sports betting on the right.
The colour scheme of teal, orange and various blacks and greys might be initially jarring to some, but that's only a very minor quibble. We've not seen such an expertly-designed and under-stated sports betting site for quite some time.
Sportnation.bet loses one brownie point for a lack of information about monetary matters on the site. We tried to contact support to uncover a few mysteries, but they always seemed offline.
We did find out that the minimum deposit here is £5. From other sources we also found out that the site only accepts Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards as payment methods. No eWallets such as Skrill or Neteller can be used here.
There are no fees involved for either depositing or withdrawing. The minimum amount you can withdraw appears to be £10, and your withdrawal should be with you within three to five days, depending upon how quickly your bank processes transactions. There is no maximum limit to how much you can withdraw, which is of course a good thing.
We've really only one complaint about Sportnation.bet, and that's the lack of information about banking options (full information is available once you've completed your registration, though). That's a very slight moan in comparison to the goodness we encountered here – a decent size bonus for once (most sites seem content to offer you a tiny £10 'free' bet, but that's not the case here).
We really do like the way this site has been designed – we've seldom seen a site that upon first glance seems so easy to use, and in such an effective manner. Excellent stuff all round – we hope you'll be the next sports betting tourist to journey to Sportnation.bet.
