Sbobet Bookmaker History And License
Sbobet is a major international online bookmaker, established in 2004 and is a subsidiary of the e-gaming company Colton Manx Limited.
The bookie is licensed and regulated through Asia by the Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation. In Europe, it is licensed and regulated by the Isle Of Man Government. SBObet operates in various countries throughout the world but is especially strong as SBObet Asia. Unfortunately, it isn’t available in the United Kingdom, and several other major gambling countries, including Germany, France, the USA, Hong Kong, Philippines, and several other smaller countries.
Sbobet Live | In-Play
For racing, SBObet covers horse racing, harness racing and greyhound racing from around the world. They offer live streaming and in-play betting options on meetings all over the world and promise they cover all of the major horse racing meetings from the United Kingdom and Ireland. If only they offered it on more than just racing! With all the football they offer, you’d think they would deliver SBObet live football, but no.
Every other sport, if it offers any in-play betting at all, has a simple boring text interface. The very least we want for in-play betting today is a live updating image of the pitch with stats of all the action, and SBObet doesn’t deliver anywhere near this.
Sbobet Sports Betting
The bookmaker offers an impressive 1500 or more sporting events per day, and there are 32 different sports including e-sports to place a bet on. But the huge majority of the betting options are for football and racing. The racing coverage is superb, with all UK and Irish major meetings covered, and football is covered in similar depth, often with 400-500 games available per day.
After this, things tail off quickly – you might get 50-100 tennis bets available, 50 NFL and Baseball games, but everything else has way less, often in single figures. And really, given the amount of sport going on worldwide, it’s not enough to simply give players the odd bet on their chosen sport here and there. If SBObet truly wants to be a global bookmaker it should look to improve this.
There’s no better way to make sure you get the very best chance of winning well than by looking hard at the odds. Ok, first things first, you have to get the bet right. The very best odds in the world count for nothing on a losing bet. But if you’re going to be backing winnings, the better odds you can get means more money paid out to you! Where SBObet really wins in betting odds is their Asian Handicap odds. As you probably should expect from an Asian bookmaker, they have pretty much the industry-leading selection, offering players a great choice and great odds. SBObet’s odds are, by and large, really good, almost as good as their Asian Handicap odds.
Sbobet App | Site
The bookmaker’s website is a real throwback, looking years out of date with a narrow usable page that doesn’t expand dynamically, and flash modules that struggled to load in Chrome. Compare that with some of the best looking, best functioning websites such as Bet365 and there’s a massive difference. Pages feel cramped and text-heavy, with too many areas trying to grab your attention at once. The saving grace for the user-friendliness is that once you get past the cramped screen, text overload, and actually use the site, things get better. Placing your sportsbook bets is easy and straightforward, and everything is where it’s meant to be once you get used to things on the page. As for the SBObet App, as long as you’re in a location that SBObet supports, you can see one of their great betting apps on Android and iOS.
SBObet bonus might not seem the greatest, and certainly isn’t one of the best free bets offers, with just a 15% bonus of any cash you deposit. But the great thing about it is that SBObet offers you a really generous 60 days to complete the wagering requirements of just 14x the bonus. To activate the bonus, simply enter the promo code supplied by SBObet and enjoy!
Sbobet Deposits And Withdrawals
When using the bookie’s deposit & withdrawal it’s great news, as SBObet accepts all major payment methods. These include VISA and Mastercard credit and debit cards, bank transfer, and e-wallet methods; Skrill, Neteller, Entropay. SBObet doesn’t charge any fees for most transactions. The exceptions are if you withdraw more than 4 times per month using Neteller, Skrill, and bank transfers. Minimum deposits and withdrawals for debit/credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, and Entropay are €40, for bank transfers its €90. Maximums vary according to the provider.
Sbobet Customer Service
They offer email and phone support, and best of all, a 24/7 live chat option which is always our preferred method. Just open chat and moments later you’ll be online with an agent. SBObet also offers Skype support, which is very rare, plus We Chat, Line, and What’s App but these are currently only supported in Chinese.
