Review

Ok let’s start with the good.  In order to take advantage of 2 of their offers you do not need to spend a penny; you can open your account, place your free bet, submit your 6 scores every week and leave happily.  In addition their weekly free bet offer is genuinely good (read below), so whilst 2 of their offers provide no incentive to stay, at least they are addressing that with their 3rd.  It is a bit of a complaint of mine that bookies on the one hand complain about people opening accounts, taking their offers and running, but on the other making it so easy to do so.  What do they expect? Follow the Bet365 mould.  Anyway, I digress.  Skybet as a site has a lot of work to do.  Its limits are low, its sports betting options are fewer and its look is, well, about 10 years old.  In compiling currency and deposit options for other bookmakers, the numbers would number dozens, here we have just 2.  It is certainly worth signing up for due to their offers and the fact that they can certainly offer great value on their bets, but I can’t imagine most people saying that they would be their number 1 bookmaker.

Opinion

This is the best weekly ‘free bet’ offer out there and makes it worth wandering along to Skybet’s site at least once a week.  The £25 is not prohibitive to most recreational gamblers who should be able to find something that they fancy, especially ACCA lovers who will be dealing exclusively in long odds!

Best Odds Guaranteed

Take an Early Price (EP) or Board Price and if the Starting Price (SP) is bigger they will pay you at the bigger price.  Applies to UK and Irish Horse races.​

Opinion

If you take a price that subsequently drifts in the market but goes on to win, you will get paid at that higher price.  This offer is standard among mainstream bookmakers and I would go so far as to say that if it is not offered then you should place your racing bets elsewhere.

Super 6

Predict 6 scores correctly to win £250,000.  Should there be no winner then £5,000 will be given to the highest scoring player.

Opinion

This is Skybet’s weekly guess 6 scores competition which is a nice headliner for their site.  The actual odds of correctly picking 6 scores starts at around 110,000/1 so although obviously very unlikely, it is better than the lottery and it is free! Every Skybet member should enter and it might be worth signing up for an account with them just for the entertainment of missing out on the jackpot with a last minute equaliser that ruins your hopes 🙂
