How We Monitor and Rate a Sportsbook’s Performance
In order to get a fair assessment of how sportsbooks treat players, we create accounts, interact with customer service, deposit money, navigate through the site, and see first-hand what the experience is like. From there, we cross-check our findings with trusted colleagues and the general public so our review isn’t biased. This is an ongoing process to ensure we have the latest information available to you, the bettor.
The bottom line is that we play at the sites we recommend (and have played—past tense—at the sites we don’t) and we only recommend the sportsbooks that we feel comfortable and confident using.
How to Deposit Money and Get Paid Out at an Online Sportsbook
In order to place a bet, you need to make a deposit at your sportsbook of choice. Each sportsbook will vary but the most common deposit methods are credit card, Bitcoin, wire transfer, or an alternative currency. As soon as your payment has been accepted, you are free to wager!
To make a withdrawal, your money is usually returned by the same method as your deposit with the exception of credit card. That being said, you can almost always get a check and there are usually ways to expedite your payout.
The sportsbooks that we recommend are quick to initiate payouts; you can almost always get you your cash in 10-14 business days if not faster.
Key Factors in Choosing a Bookie
Deposit and withdrawal options are one of the key factors that new UK bettors consider when choosing a sportsbook. But they are far from the only one. Our research indicates that the following are the five most-important factors UK bettors take into account when picking which online site to bet at:
- safe transactions,
- a trustworthy reputation,
- free, easy, and quick transactions,
- lucrative/generous bonuses, and
- a wide selection of sports.
Just as the legal framework impacts which deposit and withdrawal options are available, it also affects which sports you will be able to wager on. As alluded to above, online betting sites tend to offer a broader selection of sports. Before you pick a sportsbook, take a look at which sports they offer, how deeply they cover each one, whether they have the types of bets you want to make, and how their odds compare to the competition.
When it comes to reputation, don’t stop your research at word-of-mouth. Read our comprehensive sportsbook reviews and search the various sites in the UKGC’s public register (see above). As mentioned, the UKGC tracks all the sanctions imposed against betting sites and keeps detailed notes on e.g. the complaints lodged against them.
Lastly, when you are comparing bonuses, the applicable laws require that sportsbooks set out all the terms and conditions that apply. It is incumbent on you to read the fine print. If you feel that a bonus was misleading or that a sportsbook falsely advertised any offer, you can register your complaint with the UKGC.
