About Sportingbet

Mark Blandford created Sportingbet in 1997, and he was one of the first to predict the giant rise in online sports betting. A year later and Sportingbet went live, one of the first UK bookmakers to offer bets via the internet.

In 2001 the company floated on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market which was a real landmark for the online gaming industry. The company is now co-owned by giants of the industry GVC (who operate the likes of Ladbrokes-Coral and Bwin), and by William Hill following a £530m takeover in 2013. William Hill took control of all Australian and Spanish operations with GVC taking responsibility for the rest of the Sportingbet empire.


Customer services

In our experience, answers from customer support tend to be quite brief. Unlike other significant sites, assistance is not available 24/7. While not the most helpful service out there, they will help fix any issues you have during or after registration. There is also a dedicated ‘accounts’ section on both the FAQ and ‘Help’ pages which contains lots of valuable information.

Contacts for Questions

Live chat is available between the hours of 10:00 and 22:00 (CET). You can also email Sportingbet via the online form on the ‘Contact’ page or by writing to support@sportingbet.com.

To contact Sportingbet by phone, call 0800 028 0348.


Final verdict on Sportingbet registration review

The free registration process at Sportingbet starts strongly courtesy of their simple sign-up form which takes next to no time to complete. Within a couple of minutes, previously unregistered customers can be placing their first bet. Should help be required at any point, many answers are available on the help pages. Still, adequate customer service is also available most of the day.

With everything as easy to execute on mobile devices, Sportingbet scores strongly here but the site is not without its faults. Across many pages, you can still find a reference to ‘User ID’ even though these have been scrapped and customers now login with their email addresses. Secondly, the verification process, which often needs completing before withdrawing, can be quite slow too, which stops you from getting your money quickly.

Our only other concern is that should anyone gain access to your email account, they will be able to access your Sportingbet account quite easily just by resetting your password.

Overall rating: 4/5
