SkyBet has been one of the leading UK based bookmakers since its emergence into the betting market in 2000. The broadcasting company then went on to release their mobile betting version in 2011 and since then has continued its growing success.

SkyBet Betting Apps & Mobile Website

The SkyBet apps have evolved from just an iPhone app, into one that is now available on devices such as iPad, Android and various tablets. In fact, SkyBet apps are now offered for pretty much all smartphone devices including Nokia, Blackberry, HTC, Windows and Samsung.

Downloading the apps couldn’t be easier; simply click any of the symbols above which match your manufacturer’s smartphone and you will be guided into how to download each app for that device. Upon clicking the links you will be asked to register an account with SkyBet. Once this has been completed you will then be able to use these details to log into your downloaded SkyBet app and start using the app straight away.

Punters that are already familiar with some of the many Sky apps that are on offer – Sky Movies, Sky Go, Sky News, Sky Sports etc – will see that the SkyBet app is instantly recognisable in terms of aesthetics. The deep blues, white text and splashes of colour make it look like a really high quality betting app and the usability of the app is second to none. It loads quickly, the market are easy to follow and understand, the betting slip is a constant at the bottom of the app and the availability to jump back to home screen at any time combines into a fantastic betting app.

For punters who prefer to bet directly through their smartphone or tablet browser, the SkyBet mobile website uses a flexible design which automatically adjusts based on the device and screen size. The benefit of using the mobile website instead of an app is that no download is required, and thus no memory is being used on your device. For example, if you have an older iPhone or Android phone (or one with a lot of memory already being used), the SkyBet mobile website is a great alternative.

Real Money Deposit and Withdrawal Options

The SkyBet app allows you to both deposit and withdraw funds from your account to your chosen payment method. Initially you will be required to store a debit or credit card on file. This function can be done directly from the SkyBet app itself. Once this has been registered deposits are made instantly whilst withdrawals will be made back to your card of choice within 1-5 business days.

On top of that you can include payment methods such as Skrill, Neteller and PayPal. To add these to your account you will need to log in via their website and apply these payment methods. Once you have done so they will become apparent via the SkyBet app, but you cannot add these payment methods from the app.

Horse Racing & Live Streaming Video

We love the addition of live streaming on some of the many, many horse racing markets that are available at SkyBet.com. To view the race you will need to have placed a minimum bet of £1 on that race, but you will be able to access the Racing UK channel – where the race is streamed from – for up to half an hour after that race, meaning you will likely get at least a couple more races on top. Additionally you can stream these races from a good 3G connection, although if you can get hold of a Wi-Fi signal, then we would recommend that.

The popularity of markets such as accumulator betting is something that is sweeping the betting world, especially with sports such as football. The SkyBet app has clearly picked up on this and included an ‘Acca’ section – or coupons, if you will. The coupons section allows you to choose from midweek matches, weekend matches, UK Long list, Both Teams To Score, Whopper Long List, Bankers Coupon, Over/Under 2.5 goals, European Elite List, Live on TV and Rest of the World lists. It’s a brilliant, yet simple little feature allowing you to quickly flick between each market and easily select bets to add to your coupon.

SkyBet.com Sports and Betting Markets

The SkyBet app probably won’t win any awards for the amount of sports it covers; that being said, it’s hardly short on numbers. We counted almost thirty sports to choose from which ranged from your higher profile betting markets such as football, golf, rugby, darts, cricket, tennis and horse racing. To a few more ‘niche’ markets including MMA, Speedway, Volleyball, Gaelic Games and hand ball.

It’s always pleasing to see markets outside of the world of sport, such as current affairs and TV & Film specials. Whilst these are a bit more tongue in cheek markets, rather than something punters are going to be lumping on, they are a welcomed change of pace in the betting industry. Some markets include the likes of who will be the next pope, awards at the Oscars, reality television winners and sports personality awards.

Their main forte comes in the form of football betting. It includes leagues and competitions from around the world, with an added interest in English domestic leagues such as the Premier League, Championship and a host of the lower leagues. The great thing about the SkyBet app is that it provides a lot of markets that many other bookmakers simply don’t. Whilst it still includes all your major markets for most games – Premier League games can get over 100 including in-play betting – you can click on any of the specials, outrights and featured matches from their football tab.

The specials section is something that is most pleasing about the app. It includes markets such as enhanced accumulators, bookie bashers, manager specials, transfer specials, and a range of specials dependent on country and even clubs. It’s these sorts of additions that make betting apps such as SkyBet stand out in a very competitive marketplace.

It’s also worth noting its horse racing section as well. We mentioned earlier how you can steam live races from the Sky channel Racing UK. For those that are unfamiliar with the channel, then it’s racing channel that covers live races from around the world 24/7, and is 100% dedicated to horse racing. In turn the channel relates pretty much all of their markets back to the SkyBet app and the prices it produces. This means that the coverage of races and markets from the app is easily one of the most comprehensive in the industry at the minute.

It’s worth noting at this point that it’s important to remember that SkyBet come from one of the biggest distributors of live sport – Sky Sports – in the world. With over 6 dedicated sport channels the coverage is simply second to none and a massive amount of these are included on the SkyBet mobile app.

Bonus & Promotions

When you sign up for a new account with SkyBet you can take advantage of their £10 no deposit free bet. This means that as soon as your account is open, there will be a £10 free bet waiting in your account for you to bet on which ever sports or market you choose.

On top of that you can claim an additional £5 free when you deposit and place your first bet with you own money of £5 or more. This offer runs for every week after you open an account, meaning if you deposit and place £5 or more each week, then SkyBet will give you a free bet of £5 each week.

SkyBet Casino (SkyVegas) App

You can access SkyBet’s casino section, SkyVegas, directly from their betting app by clicking the icon in the top right of your app. From this you can play a wide variety of table games such as roulette, blackjack, Deal or No Deal, Bejewelled, Video Poker and a range of slots.

Whilst Sky does run both poker and bingo rooms, these are unfortunately not available on via their mobile software.
