The top five UK betting sites

With there being so many betting websites around, you can be forgiven for not knowing which one you should use. You could waste hours searching the Internet trying to find the one for you, or you could use this guide of the five best UK based sites. If five is not enough for you, then you should check out UK betting sites for all the information you could want.

  1. SkyBet

One of the best features of SkyBet is their RequestABe system. Whilst other website will have a similar system, none of them hold a candle to SkyBets. If you can think of an event or a situation you would like to bet on, then all you have to do is RequestABet on the SkyBet website and they will create the odds for you.

  1. Bet365

Bet365 is one of the best sites for giving out early odds. If you can think of a sporting event, then you will probably find the early odds for it on Bet365. When you team this up with their Bore Draw Money Back offer, there are some very good reasons to use Bet365 instead of the competition. Bet365 will refund any bets placed on a game which finishes without a goal, it is a free way to bet against the game ending 0-0.

  1. Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes offer one of the largest sign-up bonuses for new customers, up to £50 of free bets. Not only is this a great incentive to sign-up, but they offer an acca insurance policy too. If one of the legs in you accumulator loses, you can simply discard it from your acca and carry on with the rest of the bet. This alone is enough to draw in anyone who creates a weekly football acca.

  1. William Hill

William Hill are one of the oldest and most trusted bookmakers in England. They have had a high street presence for longer than most of us remember and their online betting shop has everything you would associate with their heritage.

The website makes finding your chosen sporting event as simple as possible and then placing your bet even simpler. The odds are normally at the right end of the market and you know you are dealing with a trusted institution.

  1. Betfair

Betfair have broken the mould slightly in the gambling world. They are not a bookmakers or a traditional gambling website, instead, they are an exchange. This allows users to either back or lay against an event happening. In essence, you can have the traditional bet and select a team to win or you could lay against it, and select that a team will not win. All bets are placed against other people and Betfair are just the website not the bookies.

There is little to differentiate most of the standard online betting sites on offer, but these five manage to stand out from the crowd and create all the right impressions.
