Why choose Sportingbet
- High bettting limits
- Great odds at basketball
- Interesting promotions
- Live streaming
- Cash Out
- Withdrawals free of charge
- Attractive live betting section
Being in the betting industry for almost 20 years, Sportingbet is considered as an experienced and trustworthy online bookmaker. They keep on improving their services, adding live streaming and cash out in recent years, but they don’t offer Asian Handicap bets, like many others. They try to lead in markets other than football, where the competition is lower, and they really have a great reputation for their variety of betting markets in basketball and tennis. Their live betting section is among the best you can find, but they need to reduce their withdrawal times, which are unexpectedly slow for a well-established online bookmaker.
