Sportingbet Review


Why Choose Sportingbet?

  • Up to £60 in bonuses for new customers
  • Bookmaker with over 20 years experience
  • Build a bet feature to create your own wager

Sportingbet have been a name associated with betting for a long time, they have over 20 years experience in the industry so certainly know what they are doing.

They offer an extremely solid sportsbook, while it doesn’t excel in any particular area, it is very good in pretty much every way. For those looking for a complete all-rounder, this could be the bookmaker for you.

It is worth mentioning their build a bet feature, something that a few bookmakers have started to offer. With this you can use selected betting markets and games to create your own ideal wager, a great and increasingly popular way to bet on football.


Sportingbet will rarely be seen as the bookmaker offering the very best price about something, but they will more often than not be just behind the leaders. The best deal is rarely on offer, but they do offer very competitive odds and a good deal pretty much all of the time.

New Player Offer

Sportingbet have been quite creative with their Welcome Offer, billing it the "Welcome Challenge". The Challenge is actually split into 4 challenges which are:

  • Bet on any sport acca (min 3 selections, min odds 1.50 per selection), get a 50% matched FreeBet up to £10
  • Bet £10 or more on any Football pre-match single (min odds 1.50), get 20 free spins valued at 10p each on starburst (paid as cash, no wagering) and an Odds Boost Token. (10% Odds Boost, max Stake £10)
  • Bet £10 or more on any in-play single (min odds 1.50), get a Back up bet 50% token, paid as FreeBet worth up to £20
  • Wager £100 on any Casino games and get a £10 Casino Bonus with 10x wagering (selected games)
  • Complete all challenges, and receive a £20 FreeBet token

All things considered this is a pretty good deal!
