BOOK SPY BONUS REVIEW

Being in the industry for more than 20 years and as part of one of the most prominent groups in the world, Sportingbet can be considered an experienced and trustworthy online bookmaker. Nowadays, it mainly targets regulated markets. This is why it elected to stop accepting players from several countries. I love that it keeps improving the services by adding new innovative features such as the Auto Cash Out and Multi Generator. You can find several extra and special bets and the payment section is extremely versatile. You can choose from multiple local currencies, transaction options and languages. However, the betting site has a long way to go. Similar to other Entain brands, it tends to limit winning accounts fast. In addition, being the second brand behind Bwin has hindered the development. The website is old-fashioned and the general product offering is identical to the ones from other betting sites in the same group. I would prefer a site that provides something unique. The absence of Asian Handicap options is also notable. Overall, Sportingbet is a tested and safe option, especially if you are a new player.
