Sky Bet app review
If you have ever watched a sporting event in your life, you are probably aware of Sky Sports and the Sky brand. As one of the largest sporting providers in the world, it’s no surprise that their betting app is extremely popular, and it’s not very hard to see why. Sky Bet have a very loyal customer following, especially with punters who love having a bet on the football. That is because it is one of the best football betting apps on the market – feature packed, fast with great odds & offers.

The login process on the Sky Bet Android app is one of the sleekest out there, allowing you to choose from logging in with a PIN number that you can choose, or via your fingerprint if your device has this functionality. From there, you are given the home console, which will show you a variety of popular sporting events, In play events, and promotions that you can utilise, such as the very popular ‘Sky Bet Club’.
One of the greatest features on the Sky Bet app is the ability to create multiples and accumulators. This is by far one of the easiest apps to use to create these types of bet, and easy to trace and keep a track on these bets also. The icon arrangement at the bottom of the screen gives the user the functionality to quickly move from different games to ‘Your Bets’, where you can not only view your upcoming bets, but also your settled bets, and your in play bets. If that wasn’t enough, from this section, you’re able to cash out at any point (available on selected games and events), and the cash out amount is clearly displayed and is worth using if you feel you need to end your bet early.
Another great feature on the app is the choice of colours used throughout the design to show different offers available. It makes it a joy to use, being able to see what bets are currently on a price boost, what special offers there are, as well as giving information about where and when you can watch the event, should it being shown live on TV. The super boosts offered by the bookie are excellent and offer some amazing prices on what seem no brainier options to back.
The newest feature to the Sky Bet Android app is a pretty unique one and it is called Group Bets. This option lets you and friends make a group accumulator in your account. You can be part of up to 5 Group Bet groups and not everyone in the group has to bet. You can add or remove selections from the bet slip too and also set your own stake; not everyone has to bet the same. Don’t worry you don’t share the winnings, it is just a clever way of all clubbing together to make an accumulator.
The Sky Bet app for Android also offers a games section, so if sports betting is not your thing, you are also able to utilise the mobile casino and slot machines via easily accessible quick links in the apps menu.
Sky Bet offers a ‘Request A Bet’ feature, directly from the app. This amazing new feature is where you are able to suggest a bet to Sky, who will then provide you with the odds and price, so that you can add this to your bet slip. You can also browse what other people have been requesting and add these to your bet slip too, meaning that Sky Bet really does offer some of the most varied betting markets around. It is a feature other bookmakers will be sure to adopt in the future and many have now jumped on this band wagon and offer there own. Sky’s is still one of the best to use if you do like betting on more specialised types of bets. As one of the original developers of this option, Sky are still one of the best and most reliable.
Sky Bet also makes easy work of betting for special events, such as transfer deadline day, The Ashes, and Wimbledon, often offering promotions surrounding these events and up to the minute information about each event, including stats, form books and general information that will help you choose the right bet.
The Sky Bet Android app really does offer quite a lot from a small app. Horse racing is well represented and is extremely easy to navigate to, choosing your event first of all, which will then take you through to a menu based view, where you can select your horses, and then change the time of the race to continue adding horses to your bet slip. On certain qualified races, you can watch them live directly via your app too on mobile or tablet devices.
From one of the biggest sporting suppliers out there, the Sky Bet app is really everything you’d come to expect from Sky.
