skybet 
 
Review Date : Jan 2019

The parent company was BSkyB Group plc. Surrey Sports was the original bookie that changed its name to Sky Bet and the website followed suit in 2003.

In 2015, Sky plc sold an 80 percent stake in the company to CVC Capital Partners for £600 million, with Sky retaining a 20% stake in the company including a licence of the Sky brand. In 2018, CVC and Sky agreed to sell Sky Betting & Gaming to The Stars Group for £3.4 billion.

There is a much improved range of bets over the last few years.

Account management is slick and bet placement is sound and secure enough not to be placing the wrong the bet by mistake.

Many original type bets that you will not find on other sites e.g. Mythical match bets between people playing in different championships and in Formula 1 - Who will X collide with first?
Good general coverage, very good golf coverage.

Nice feature to allow bets as small as 5p.

Overall the site looks a bit old fashioned the menu system works very well and the bet slip facility works smoothly.

Great improvements in the book percentage area as well. Look to Book Comparison

The Upside
Doesn't easily bar people who win. Great racing TV with very clear graphics. Great free bet promotion that runs all the time.

The Upside
Loses 1 point for declining price performance.
