Advantages and disadvantages of the bookmaker
About the Sportingbet
Sportingbet is a betting operator that was created as early as in 1992. Six years later, it debuted as a online sports betting bookmaker. Currently, it is one of the most prestigious and popular betting operators in the world. Sportingbet was founded by a businessman called Mark Blandford, who was voted the Businessman of the year in England in 2002. He was awarded with this title primarily due to his contribution in promotion of the Sporting Group brand that includes the Sportingbet.com online sports betting website. Sportingbet became a popular bookmaker mainly because of its very good sports betting offer as well as numerous marketing campaigns and sponsorships.
Sportingbet Sports betting offer
The sports betting offer is the “thing” that makes the difference for this giant of bookmaking industry. With a clear conscience we can say that with over 8000 bets each day, Sportingbet has one of the best sports betting offers on the market. Furthermore, it is because of its great variety of sports and betting markets that over 3 million satisfied customers have created their betting accounts at this bookmaker.
Football, tennis, volleyball, basketball, handball, golf, boxing, darts, snooker, cricket, formula one, mixed martial arts and even water polo are only a few disciplines offered by Sportingbet bookmaker. Even the most demanding punters will be pleased with both the number of sporting events and disciplines as well as number of competitions, leagues, tournaments and various betting markets and options such as handicaps, sum of goals, total bets (Over / Under), Draw no Bets, half-time score and many many others. What is more, apart from sports betting, Sportingbet has special bets and Esports bets in its offer as well as casino and lottery and many other gambling games, notably roulette. Everyone should find something for himself!
Similarly to the pre-match betting, the Livebetting section at Sportingbet looks really good and should please every punter. The amazing number of betting markets as well as sporting events and competitions coupled with decent odds and many option for each bet, makes this British betting operator one of the best on the market. Punters that specialise in tennis or football should be especially happy with what the bookmaker has to offer for Livebetting on these sports. Other sports also have few Live bets offered for them. Almost inch-perfect Livestreaming feature only confirms our already high opinion of this part of the Sportingbet sports betting offer.
Sportingbet is known for its involvement with promotional campaigns and sponsorship of many sporting events and competitions. The bookmaker was, amongst others, the titular sponsor of the most prestigious men’s club basketball competition outside the United States, the European Basketball Club Championship, also knows as the Euroleague.
Furthermore, the bookmaker is very visible in the world of football. In 2009 it signed a two-year sponsorship deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club and in 2010 Sportingbet became involved with another English club, Leeds United, which signed a four year deal with Sportingbet. For a while, the bookmaker also cooperated with other English football top clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth Football Club. Apart from English football, Sportingbet sponsored few other clubs from Romania, Bulgaria or Brazil. The British giant did not limit to the world of football as it sponsored many Rugby and horse racing competitions as well as many other disciplines.
Definitely a strong aspect of this bookmaker. At the moment of writing this review (June 2017), Sportingbet offers 8 smaller or bigger bonuses and betting promotions. Apart from quite good Welcome Bonus as well as many occasional bets, the bookmaker offers few decent bonuses that should satisfy most punters. More professional punters may expect something more, but the majority would be more than pleased with what Sportingbet offers.
Obviously, for a betting operator of this prestige and esteem, Sportingbet enables us to use its website via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. You can easily access Sportingbet’s sports betting website with its mobile betting app or simply by entering the mobile version of its website.

To sum up, placing a bet and transferring Your money using Your phone is very easy at this bookmaker.
There are many methods You can contact the Sportingbet customer support such as phone, email, live chat, contact form or even fax. People working at Sportingbet’s customer support are very friendly, competent and helpful. What is more, there are many language to choose from and the response time is quite short. It seems that we have encountered the perfect customer support section. But...yes, there is a “but”. We have noticed a disadvantage and not a small one. The customer support service at Sportingbet do not work 24/7 but only during the set hours (Only email option is available for 24/7, 365 days a year). We believe that such a good bookmaker, with great offer and long tradition in sports betting as well as a global reputation should try a little bit harder to satisfy its customers, especially when it comes to quick contact in important matters connected with our betting account.
The bookmaker offers a wide variety of available payment methods and many currencies to choose from. Nobody should complain about making deposits and withdrawals at Sportingbet. What is more, all money transfers are made almost instantly and without any problems.
