Sportingbet Casino Review
How much gambling can you bear? Sportingbet Casino provides nearly all forms of gambling, except cockroach-race betting. They have sports betting, an online casino and a live casino with lots of various games. Their game library consists of 700 games from NetEnt, Microgaming, Betsoft and few more reputable developers. If you look for bonuses - you might get lost there, but not because they’re abundant, but because they have one section for all bonus offers, and the welcome bonus isn’t there. Anyway, we found it, and it’s a 100% deposit match up to €250 with the 35xB WR’s. Not bad for sure. If you like sports betting as well as the online slots - Sportingbet Casino is for you.
- 19-year-old casino (two more years and it can buy itself alcohol);
- Licenses from UK and Malta;
- Huge variety of games offered;
- Multilingual website (20 languages).
- Live Chat is not 24\7 (athletes need healthy sleeping you know);
- 97 countries are not allowed (not a former British colony? Off you go);
- Website is not user-friendly.
Sportingbet started off back in 1998 as a sportsbook (we wonder why not earlier… ancient Greece was a perfect sporting arena). Gradually they expanded to cover casino and Vegas games (is there any real reason to split these into two different sections? We honestly don’t think so). Anyways, the website still looks like it is stuck in the 90s.
The casino is regulated by the respectable Malta Gaming Authority and employs all necessary security policies, including SSL encryption and privacy protection. While it is clear, that sports betting is the main focus if the website, casino games section doesn’t look like it’s been neglected.
Banking: Banking options include Bank Wire, Visa, Skrill, Neteller, and PayPal. More than enough for most of the users. Withdrawal times are not bad: 12-24 hours pending time for all transactions, 24-48 hours withdrawal time for e-wallets and 2-5 days for Visa.
Customer Support: Support service is available 24/7 via live chat. There are also other options, such as e-mail and toll-free phone numbers for the UK and Canada. Phone support working hours are from 09 AM to 09 PM GMT.
Software and Game Variety

“Slots take prevailing place in the library.”
Slots take prevailing place in the library. There are just over 700 of them - more than enough to choose from. Sportingbet Casino is connected to Microgaming’s jackpot network, so you’ll have access to their renowned progressive slots like Mega Moolah and Major Millions.
Mobile and Live Gaming
Mobile casino works in your mobile browser and supports a wide range of platforms - iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry. If you have a device that don’t fall into any of these categories... Well, you might want to take it to your local museum or hammer nails with it.
Live games is another outstanding feature at Sportingbet casino. Not only they have all popular games (roulette, blackjack, baccarat and poker) and multiple languages, but there are also VIP tables with extremely high limits. Not all the tables are 24\7, perhaps people do sleep in these countries.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome Bonus is a 100% deposit match up to €250. The wagering requirements are 35x the amount of bonus, which is nearly the fairest offer you can get.

They also have lots of other promos. In particular, we enjoyed bonus calendar, where you get some freebie every day, be it free spins for one slot, increased winnings for another or cashback bonus for a table game. There are also Weekly Insurance Bonuses that secure winnings and allows to get points. Be sure to take a look at promotions page for exact details before you dive deep into the fascinating ocean of sports adrenaline from the heights of your sofa and pillow.
