Sky Bet App Review

Sky Bet has a design that has been trusted upon for years. Very few changes have been made to the overall appearance, making it nice and familiar every time a user logs in.

It does look a little dated, compared to others, such as the bet365 app, which has undergone a major facelift recently. However, the system works inasmuch as keeping information clear, navigating to the right place, and placing bets quickly.

The app is packed full of handy tools and features but regularly falls short of the best price on their standard odds offering. That said, they do offer out price boosts and bonuses that produce prices that cannot be beaten elsewhere.

Sky Bet App Features

In Play Betting

Betting on live events has significantly grown in popularity over the years, as it’s a facet of betting that demands swift decisions. I’ve noticed Sky Bet prominently displays in-play events right from the home page, ensuring they’re immediately accessible.

When I tap on an in-play event, it reveals the in-play visuals and markets. At the top, a visual accurately depicts the ongoing event, which I can switch out to view key statistics and information. This feature is particularly useful for identifying players who have managed a shot on target in football matches.

Sky Bet often provides enhanced odds on the day’s most popular events, prominently displayed at the top of the markets section. As I scroll down, I’m presented with all available in-play markets. With a plethora of options, the provided filter menu is a boon, simplifying the search for specific markets.

Cash Out

The Cash Out feature is available across a wide variety of sports and markets. It’s a standard cash-out system, where you have the option of cashing out in full or staying in the bet. Unfortunately, there’s no partial cash-out facility here that allows you to cash out a percentage, leaving the remainder to ride.

You can view cash out amounts on open bets by visiting the “My Bets” section of the app and then selecting the “Cash Out Bets” tab. Any bets with available cash out amounts will show here.

Any market that is labeled with the cash out icon will have this feature attached to it. The icon, represented by two green arrows forming a circle, will appear next to the title of the market in question.

Free Games

Sky Bet is well known for the free games that are connected to it. These free games give you the opportunity to win a broad range of prizes, without having to risk any of your own cash. Our favourite free games to play associated with the Sky Bet app are:

  1. Super 6

    – This game appears frequently on big football game days. users can opt-in to enter by predicting six score lines from six specific matches selected by Sky Bet. Predicting all six usually has a jackpot amount of £250,000, although, on the odd occasion, it will be boosted up to £1,000,000. If nobody successfully predicts all six scores, a consolation prize is awarded to the highest-scoring entrant of £5,000.

  2. Super 6 Extra

    – This free game requires players to answer 6 questions on a specific football match. Questions usually revolve around the full-time and half-time scores, player to score first, the man of the match, first player booked, and the number of corners. There’s a £5,000 prize on offer here and a tie-break question regarding possession percentage ensures a standalone winner every time.

  3. ITV 7 Racing Game

    – This is a free horse racing game that offers prizes of £1,000 and upwards. Jackpot amounts are usually higher on broadcasted events. Seven horse races are selected by Sky Bet for users to predict which horse they think will win in each. This is a game we recommend playing frequently for those who like betting on the horses. It keeps the day’s races interesting and a monthly player leaderboard provides a good indication of how good each user is at predicting winners. Read how to play ITV7 here.

  4. Prize Machine

    –  The Prize machine gives registered Sky Bet users a daily chance to win a reward. The machine spins like a slot machine and requires the three wheels to spell out the word WIN. If the word spins in, the machine reels change to display a range of prizes, from a 10p casino bonus to £1,000 in cash. Read how to play the prize machine here.

    Prize Machine details

  5. Match 5

    – Match 5 is a new game where you can win free bets by logging in and playing every day. Read how to play Match 5 here.

All of these games are well advertised on the Sky Bet app but require separate apps or websites to play them.

Live Streaming

We found that Skybet provides live streams of a good number of sporting events around the world. These included:

  • Football
  • Horse Racing
  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Golf
  • Cricket
  • Rugby Union
  • Rugby League
  • Darts
  • Snooker

The Live video was nice clear and smooth when connected to a reliable data connection. Videos can be played in full screen to make use of every available pixel.


Sky Bet’s request a bet system was instrumental in introducing a brand-new feature in the industry – the Bet Builder. Although Sky Bet was among the pioneers to offer this type of service, it seems they have somewhat lagged behind.

The Bet Builder system is limited to only four combined selections and hasn’t significantly expanded the available markets from which you can choose. Other bookmakers’ Bet Builder systems allow for many more selections, have incorporated markets such as shots on target, and enable you to place Bet Builders as multiple bets.

However, the Bet Builder system is available for football bets on the Sky Bet app, and any bet that cannot be priced up automatically is forwarded to the pricing team for a manual check.

One advantage of the Sky Bet Bet Builder is the availability of stats integrated into it, a feature not offered by other bookmakers. This allows you to make a more informed choice on the markets you wish to include by analyzing trends and statistics simultaneously.

Horse Selector

The horse selector feature is designed to be a blessing for you if you’re a horse racing enthusiast short on time. It provides a list of filters for you to interact with, helping you find horses and jockeys that match specific criteria. These filters allow you to narrow down your search efficiently, making it easier to pick horses.

  • Jockey in form
  • Top trainer
  • Trainer in form
  • Course and distance winner
  • Proven on the going
  • Course winner
  • Proven over the distance
  • Distance winner
  • Beaten as favourite last time out
  • Winner in last race
  • Placed in last race
  • Won at least once in last three races
  • Placed at least once in last three races

These filters can be combined in any way that you see fit, to provides matches that suit the combination of filters selected.

Promotions & Bonuses

Sky Bet are well renowned for their odds boosts, enhancements, and money-back specials.

There is value to be had from the promotions, that are both fair and frequent. Enhanced accas, price boosts, and extra places are almost a daily occurrence and The Sky Bet Club keeps you logging in and betting frequently.


Group bets feature

GroupBets is a great little feature for groups of friends that like to place bets together. For example, 6 people all make one selection to create a six-fold accumulator for the Saturday. Each person puts £5 in for the stake, to create a £30 six-fold.

A group will need to be created by someone and other friends would need to be invited into it. This system keeps track of the bet and also each individual’s picks over time, so it is clear who is frequently letting the side down and who it’s best to get tips off.

A chat feature is built in to provide plenty of opportunity for banter before, during, and after the action has taken place. This is a unique feature that is not common among online bookmakers. It is rare to find a betting app for friends to use.


The Sky Bet app is a great all-round offering from one of the modern-day giants of the betting arena. You wouldn’t expect any less from a group that really is at the forefront of sports betting in the United Kingdom. There are reams of sports and markets to bet on here, with enticing in-play options.

It’s easy to use, has loads of information, and has unique, quirky markets that cannot be found anywhere else. We wouldn’t recommend this to be the sole betting app to rely on, but it is certainly worthwhile having alongside other apps that offer better odds across everyday markets. It

Other Sky Bet Apps

Sky Vegas app

The Sky Vegas app has a huge catalogue of online slots to choose from. The old classics are plentiful, as are popular games and newly released titles. Jackpot slots, megaways and a range of numbered reel feature slots are all offered in abundance. 

There’s also a live dealer section built in to the Sky Vegas app. This adds ten live streams to bubbly hosts ready to spin their wheel or deal their cards. User’ can join the streams whenever they wish and sit back and watch or get involved in the gambling action. 

The Sky Vegas app is the home to the prize machine promotion. This daily game gives users one free spin each day which could land them with extra value rewards on a regular basis. We’ve never won anything significant from this promotion, but it does drip-feed small bonuses that adds value to the everyday gameplay. 

The app has a nice interface, but with so many games on offer, specific titles can sometimes be hard to locate. This is very much the case when the actual name of the slots title desired vanishes from the memory. All in all though, this is an app that we would happily recommend to anyone looking for an  app dedicated to slots

Sky Vegas Lite app

Sky Vegas Lite is designed to offer a more user friendly, efficient slots experience. The app is lightweight, requiring just 25.9MB of internal storage space. This makes the Sky Vegas Lite app a lot quicker in response time and much more less prone to crashing, when comparing to the Sky Vegas app.

There’s significantly less choice here in terms of game titles, but new games are being added frequently. This is a relatively new app and as such it is very much still in its experimental stage. 

One reason to give the Sky Vegas lite app a try is that it includes app exclusive games. One such game would be Sky Roulette, for example. This is a simple digital version of the classic game where users can take their time placing their chips. The wheel will only spin once the user taps on the spin button. 

On the whole, The Sky Vegas app is a more solid choice. However, when on the go or in a low data connection environment, The Sky Vegas Lite app may well be a more viable option.  

Sky Casino app

The Sky Casino app is an all-in-one casino experience. Table games, slots, live dealer tables and instant wins makes up the selection here that is nearing towards the 200 titles marker. 

The app has a slick appearance, with a dark theme and games are well categorised within the menu system. A players club is attached to the Sky casino app that rewards players with comp points each time they play. Comp points can then be traded in for cash, once enough of them have been accumulated. 

A new customer bonus is available for new players registering their first Sky account. However, this bonus does not apply if you are already a sky customer through one of the other apps developed by Sky.

Only one new customer bonus can be claimed from all that are offered out. Therefore it is wise for potential new customers to weigh up all of the offers available before registering and claiming the one that offers the most value to their betting preferences.

There are certainly better casino apps out there, but the Sky casino app acts a nice complimentary service to the Sports betting app and a more complete experience, when using it alongside the Sky Vegas app.  

Sky Poker app

The Sky Poker app is a great way to play fast moving poker across different styles of the classic card game. Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo can all be played within short timeframes.

The long play, multi-table tournament option is also present here. However, we find it more of a comfortable experience from a desktop setting, rather than squinting at a mobile screen for a number of hours. 

The shorter setting games are much more of a better fit for the mobile environment, in my opinion. Cash games and Sit & Go tables are available and a handy ‘Play Now’ feature instantly whisks users in to suitable tables that matches the user’s spending habits and budget.

Biometric login functionality from compatible devices makes logging in quick and secure at the same time and a loyalty program and exclusive poker promotions keeps users logging in regularly.

Those who are new to poker, or just not very good can benefit from the Sky Poker app through the strategy videos available. These videos can help calculate probability percentages better and faster, help with chip management, help eliminate common mistakes or just give an overview of the basics.

The Sky Poker app should appeal to all poker players looking to play short burst games on the move, regardless of ability.  

Sky Bingo app

The Sky Bingo app is a bold and colourful way to play bingo at home or whilst out and about. Speed bingo rooms are available for users pushed for time and community rooms for those who are looking to engage in chat conversations with fellow bingo players.

A bingo schedule built in to the app makes it simple to plan future bingo sessions and there’s a wide range of bingo styles to check out. For example:

  • 90 Ball Bingo
  • Rainbow Riches Bingo
  • 80 Ball Bingo
  • Age of Gods Bingo
  • Deal Or No Deal Bingo
  • 75 Ball Bingo
  • Mystical Bingo

Free bingo rooms become available every now and then and tickets can be purchased from as little as 1p. Promotions and bonuses are frequent enough to warrant a dedicated spot on the menu bar at the bottom of the app. Some of the offers are quick turnaround promotions with expiry dates, so it’s worthwhile checking in regularly.

Slingo games and popular slots titles have also been added to the Sky Bingo app. Over 250 different titles can be instantly accessed by tapping either the Arcade or Games icons.

Super 6 app

The Super 6 app is the dedicated app for two of Sky Bet’s Free Games. These are 

  1. The main Super 6 game
  2. Super 6 Extra

A brief outline of each game is included in our Sky Bet features section above. The Super 6 game is by far the most popular, as it has the biggest jackpot. The chances of winning these games are extremely slim, but I personally play them on a regular basis, to keep the weekend football action interesting, without having to put any cash on the line. 

Sky Bet do provide odds and instant access to the bet slip from this app, in case the user wishes to also place bets based on their competition selections. This is entirely optional and does not form part of the terms and conditions. Full terms and conditions do apply to each game mentioned, all of which are available from the Super 6 app.  

Sky Sports fantasy football app

The Sky Sports Fantasy Football app is a season long game, giving users the chance to compete against each other in a fantasy football league. Prizes are awarded to those at the top of the league come the end of the season, plus manager of the month awards too. 

Players get 100 Million of virtual currency to spend on eleven players to make up their fantasy team. Points are awarded to each player, depending on their performance in the upcoming game.

Players can be transferred in and out during the course of the season and captains need to be selected for each game day, who pick up double points for the team. 

Private leagues can be created between friends. Handy for groups who wish to organise their own personal prize structure.

The Sky Sports Fantasy Football app is not really for those who like to play every now and then. This game is drawn out over the course of a season and one missed week could set the user well off the pace. This one is for the committed, fantasy football fans only.  

ITV7 app

The ITV7 app is dedicated to the free game ITV7. This is a great free coupon for horse racing fans to get involved with and is one I play often.

Sky Bet will choose seven races for players to try and correctly predict for a jackpot prize amount. All seven races have to be predicted in order to be in with a chance of the jackpot. The game is made available throughout the week, as well as at the weekend. 

Sky Bet odds are built in next to each horse in the race and can be selected to be bet on. The odds can also be disabled on the ITV7 app to prevent users from getting too tempted at times when they shouldn’t.

Full terms and conditions apply and are well worth becoming familiar with before playing. For example, understanding how the tie breaker system works, or the ranking system in which consolation prizes are awarded.

Sporting Life app

The Sporting Life app is a handy pocket tool for all sports statistics, results, news and information. There are dedicated sports hubs for:

  • Horse Racing
  • Football
  • Greyhounds
  • Golf
  • Darts
  • Cricket
  • Tennis
  • Boxing/MMA
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker
  • NFL

Each hub contains a wealth of handy information, but I use this app mainly for horse racing and greyhound news and statistics. The horse racing race cards on historic races often feature video coverage of the race. Beneficial when wanting to look back at how a particular horse ran last time out. 

the stable tracker tool allows users to stay updated on particular horses of interest. Notifications can be enabled when tracked horses are due to race or if a special offer becomes available relating to that horse or race. 

betting tips are posted on to the Sporting Life app from a number of sources across the football and horse racing. User’s can consider to back value accas, NAPs of the day, value bets or read through match and race previews. 

Q & A

This option is hidden away within the user account settings:

  1. Tap on the user icon in the top right of the Sky Bet app to access settings.
  2. Select “edit account details”.
  3. Head to “odds format” and choose between fractions and decimals.
  4. Tap “submit changes” and the odds format will change accordingly.

Sky Bet offer a flexible system for depositing funds in to a Sky Bet account. Methods available are:

  • Visa Electron
  • Visa Debit
  • Mastercard Debit
  • Maestro
  • Solo
  • Apple Pay
  • Google Pay

Visa Debit is the recommended method. Sky Bet offer a fast withdrawal feature to any looking to withdraw back to a Visa Debit card. This feature can get money back in to a user’s account within two hours. Other withdrawal methods take 2-5 days for the money to appear.
