As well as the generous sign up bonus for Sportsbook Guardian users, they frequently offer preferential special offers, such as free refunds of losing bets if a named player scores the last goal.
Another leading feature that Sportingbet offer is that they show live stream video of a variety of sporting events, notably tennis, football, and basketball. If you want a quick wager in your lunch hour their site is very easy to navigate and displays all the current major in-play markets on the home page.
Their football variety is only matched by Bet365, and far eclipses the majority of run of the mill sportsbooks. At the time of viewing they were offering in-play betting on matches between Tampere Utd vs JJK Jyvaskyla and USA Women vs Iceland Women, half of the matches see the football fans at Sportsbook Guardian scratching our heads as to the locations!
For the obscure football betting markets Sportingbet bet to a fair over-round percentage of 111% as standard, but the value in terms of over-round gets better for punters the higher profile the event. Even for the afore mentioned specialist football games, there will be upwards of thirty supporting markets in-play, including on things like “next throw in” and result in 15 minute chunks.
For the bigger games between recognisable teams I was like a child in the sweet shop and absolutely spoilt for choice! A Premiership match will see upwards of 50 markets available. Though I don’t want to lead anyone to believe that Sportingbet is all focused on soccer, their range of markets encompasses everything from European basketball, handball, waterpolo and bandy!
Sportingbet also has a poker product called Paradise Poker, however in my view there are stronger poker rooms listed on Poker Guardian that have a better volume of players. On Sportingbet it’s best to stick with their sports betting product that is in my opinion pretty much top of the tree in terms of market depth and variety.
Their customer service is efficient and offers a full variety of communication methods. When I tested it I received a live chat response within thirty seconds, and felt assured that they were capable in assisting. Their customer service team are in action 24/7, as are a lot of their odds compilers!
In short if you have an opinion on anything sporting, Sportingbet will be able to offer you a wager, is your heart pacing faster? I know mine is! Don’t take my word for it though, set up an account now, get some ammo with this massive sign up bonus direct from Sportsbook Guardian and go nuts!

confusing bets screen
I like to bet on the horses and do use Sportingbet often, as they often tend to go stand out about some runners, I think they can take a bit more of a risk as they don't offer best price guarantee like Bet365/WillHill/VictorChandler/Ladbrokes so they have a little less of a risk to expose themselves to. What I find annoying is that the site is a bit old school, for example the prices arent listed in betting order, and it would be nice if they had the colours by the runners also so that when watching internet streaming it can be referenced. They really need to sort the Open bets display out, to find out my open bets I have to go via the account statement and even then it struggles to communicate accumulator details clearly as it doesn't state whether acca are each way or not.
Where do they get football markets?
Sportingbet are a mad firm, they have bets on almost every single football match in the World! If you look at the betting site theres always bets on matches involving U18s from Kzakstan and places like that!
