Sbobet is the world’s leading Asian online gambling brand. The company also has operations in Europe and for that purpose is licensed in the Isle of Man, a small island of the mainland of England and near the port and major city of Liverpool. The Isle of Man government has been proactive in attracting online gaming companies and Sbobet is one of several operators based on the island.
This sportsbook offers over 500 sports events every week. It has extensive coverage of all the main soccer leagues and some more obscure. The most popular league for globing betting is the Premier League in England and Sbobet offers a comprehensive range of markets for all the matches in this league.
One of the strongest features of the website is live scores updates for major soccer matches. This makes in-play betting available alongside accurate information with regards scores and other key events in a match, such as bookings and dismissals.
A menu appears alongside the top of the Home Page that indicates the different types of gaming offered by this company, Sports, Live Casino, Casino games, racing and Games. The sub-menu for sports includes 30 sports, displayed in alphabetical order. More than half the sports markets on offer are for soccer. The menu also features some more obscure sports not offered by all the competition.
Within Sports there is an option for Live Betting. When the website was reviewed there were only eight live betting options available, for football, basketball, tennis and badminton. This compares unfavourably with European based operators that have in-play betting for as many as twenty sports.
Horse racing appears as a separate menu option to Sports. It is possible to bet conveniently on racing from the UK, Ireland, South Africa and Dubai. However, customers must open an account to view the odds and bet accordingly.
Sbobet customer support is available 24 hours a day but that is the norm now for online sportsbooks. The company can be contacted through live chat, email, telephone and Skype. There are nine currency options available including Euro, British pounds, Australian dollars and Asian currencies.
In summary Sbobet has an extensive betting offer including a wide variety of sports, excellent Asian handicap odds allied to good customer support which makes them a reliable online bookmaker.
