It is our goal to give punters a clear and concise view about what can be found at this particular operator.

Other parts of the BetUK experience that we will dive into will be promotion offers, including a BetUK welcome bonus, live in-play betting and their mobile services.

There is also going to be a fair look at other aspects, like deposits, withdrawals and the customer service quality.

BetUK Betting markets and odds quality 9/10

Betting markets

Our BetUK bookmaker review starts with a look at really what it is all about, the backbone of their services which is the sportsbook.

That is where all of the main action happens and the first thing we will touch on is the navigation of the site.

A click through to the sportsbook section of the site, (because there are also Casino options at BetUK) raises the main landing page for sports betting.

From that one page, there are a lot of accessible betting options from several different sports immediately on display.

A big listing of the big upcoming fixtures from the world of sport are listed there, but the page is fully customisable.

Menus are running across the page as well, which allow wonderfully quick access to further markets including in-play options.

Through these, you can define what is seen on the page by sports or bet types and navigation.

Navigation, we found for this BetUK review, really is a positive strong point that we noticed throughout the website.

A glance at that landing page also showed a tremendous amount of variety that is there within the BetUK sportsbook.

We look further into full details about the variety and quality of their sportsbook in-depth later in this review.

The major sports in the BetUK sportsbook have menu icons at the top of the page, but there is also a link to all sports.

A menu button sits at the top of the page as well, raising a full sportsbook listing menu which is organised by “Popular Sports” or “All Sports”.

Within that menu, it can clearly be seen just how much that BetUK covers, from the major areas like horse racing and football, through to the likes of UFC/MMA, Snooker, Netball and Australian Rules.

Also for convenience, there is a quick search bar so you can find sports, leagues or teams that you are looking for easily.

Overall, the quality we noticed in this BetUK sportsbook review looks high.

BetUK Football Review

There is plenty to dig through in the BetUK football section of their sportsbook. There is fantastic coverage there, another strong point of the operator.

We visited the specific football section of the BetUK sportsbook to take a look at the full variety of what was on offer.

A nice organisational touch of the sportsbook is that things are immediately listed by days.

So it is possible to see all of the football matches from around the world by date, which feels convenient. Within each day, the list of competitions can then be expanded.

On the day that we visited BetUk for this football betting preview, we saw markets from the League Cup in Algeria, various competitions from Brazil, Morocco and the USA to name but a few.

So there really was some impressive and extensive coverage for football betting at BetUK.

Just to push that example further, there were six different league competitions from Sweden along with a Cup competition as well.

Naturally, the major markets such as International Football, the UEFA Champions League and Premier League are going to get a lot more markets available to them.

We wanted to take a look at bet variety within the BetUK football betting, just to see the kind of options that punters may find.

There was a highly impressive number of bet options available for individual matches.

For an international football match between England and Croatia, along with the match outright, there were over an additional 500 different bets to be taken on that fixture.

Some matches we saw in the BetUk sportsbook had over 600 bets available on that single fixture.

That’s a clear indication of just how good BetUK is for the football betting variety.

For the BetUK sportsbook review, we wanted to look further at what type of bets there were.

Within a single fixture, you can filter through the page by looking at the most popular types of bets (full time, total goals, both teams to score etc) or go browsing around for some more creative options.

There is a direct link to a Bet Builder listing the options that you have available there for that feature.

BetUK also has something called Pre-packs for their football betting.

These are preset bets created with two conditions, such as Full Time Winner and Under 4.5 goals, or Both Teams To Score & Total Goals Over 2.5 goals.

Another nice touch about the BetUK football betting is that there were pre-match statistics on the page for the given match as well.

BetUK Racing Review

Horse racing from the UK & Ireland is available in the BetUK sportsbook and the coverage there is also excellent.

For those times when punters on the Sport Of Kings want to look further afield, there is also international horse racing there.

There is a lot to enjoy in horse racing at BetUK because they pack a lot of information onto a race page.

Select a race and you have the option to turn on Timeform integration insights for each of the runners, which is a great touch.

That includes a full listing of the horse’s last six races for an indication of the current form.

Also on the page for a horse race, there is an individual box for Other Bets if you want to branch out beyond the outrights.

There are Forecast and Tricast options available and with everything being laid out clearly, it does make for very quick horse racing betting.

Daily Price Boosts

Within the sportsbook menu at BetUK there is a link to a Daily Price Boosts page. If the operator has any special prices for an event will be listed there.

BetUK eSports Review

Another aspect of the BetUK sportsbook that we wanted to take a look at, was their eSports section.

That is because it is a rapidly growing part of online betting. So we wanted to see what options are there with this particular operator.

Once again we were pleasantly surprised by how extensive this particular area for the BetUK sports betting was.

Some of the games covered were from CS:GO, Dota 2 and League Of Legends. Those are all pretty standard.

But it’s the variety of markets that were available that was highly impressive really for eSports betting at BetUK.

There were league listings from France, Asia, Australia and the USA so there were extensive betting options and that included live in-play.

We will look at live in-play betting at BetUK in a little more detail later in this review.

For individual matches, there were good map handicaps, match odds and map betting such as To Go Into Overtime available.

BetUK novelty markets

The next feature of the BetUK sportsbook that we are visiting is the novelty markets, as not all betting is about sport.

There were menu links to two particular areas of novelty betting that we could find at BetUK and those were Politics and TV & Novelty.

There was good coverage of global markets with the Politics section of the BetUK sportsbook.

The UK futures market about the Prime Minister was there alongside options such as a next Party leader and other basic General Election politics betting markets.

Markets from Norway’s election highlighted how broad the score is for political betting at BetUK.

Over the TV & Novelty section of the sportsbook, there was a good amount of awards markets that were available.

Things like the Sports Personality of the Year, Time Person of the Year and the big Nobel Peace Prize betting markets were there.

TV options were from the usual stable of reality shows from both the UK and further abroad like the US and Australia.

So anyone looking to get away from sports betting can find plenty of options available at BetUK in novelty markets.

BetUk sports betting, we found them to be pretty strongly competitive for market prices on major football markets.

That complied with excellent bet variety and an easy to navigate sportsbook, which means that they rank well.

BetUK Sportsbook Summary

There are many excellent aspects of the BetUK sportsbook from navigation through to some amazingly impressive bet variety.

The sportsbook is easy to get around, and a lot can be done alone right on the main landing page.

There are plenty of menus there to help navigate and get to the desired markets.

Once you do start looking around, a real stand-out feature of the BetUK Sportsbook was the variety of bets within.

The major football markets are simply replete with different bet types and easy filtering through to the likes of bet builders really helps build a good product.

Match pages have statistics integrated into them and things are arranged in clear and easy to read individual boxes on the page, so nothing is cluttered and everything is very legible.

Odds Comparison

odds comparisons

So BetUK has a lot to offer having browsed through their sportsbook for this review.

One more thing that we wanted to take a look at was football betting margins.

Bookmaker margins are important and naturally they are going to fluctuate. There’s no set margin. Different football matches will have different margins depending on popularity for example.

We picked a couple of big international fixtures to size up what kind of margins punters could be looking at.

For the England v Croatia itinerary fixture that we mentioned earlier in the BetUk review, there was a margin of 4.37% on the match outright.

A game between Scotland and the Czech Republic had a margin of 4.16% on the match outright.

In summary, for this review of the BetUK sports betting, we found them to be strong and competitive for market prices on major football markets.

That compiled with excellent bet variety and an easy to navigate sportsbook, means that they rank well.



BetUK sign up bonus, free bets & current promotions 8/10

bonus offers

There is a BetUK welcome bonus that qualifying customers who register an account with the operator can collect.

There is no BetUK bonus code needed for the welcome offer.

BetUK ACCA Club

Alongside the BetUK welcome bonus, they do also operate an Acca Club. This is where they offer the chance for extra winning on accas every week.

For claiming the bonus card on your My Promotions page, BetUK will give you 5 profit boosts to use and that can be done directly from the bet slip.

Depending on the number of selections in your acca, that will affect what profit boost is in play, for example, there is a 10% boost for a 3-fold up to the maximum of a 50% boost on a 7-fold or bigger.

Starting on a Monday each week you can use the profits boots with the minimum odds per selection is 1.2 (1/5). The maximum stake to use the profit boosts is £20 and your profit boosts will increase your winnings up to a max of £1000 per boost.

The five profit boosts can be claimed in a week up to a maximum of a 50% profit boost.



BetUK In-play betting 8/10

live in-play betting

The next section of this BetUK review is going to be about the in-play services and how to access them.

The importance of in-play betting is huge whether that’s done through a website or a betting app.

It’s a wonderfully convenient way of doing sports betting, having the options right at your fingertips, any time of day and following along with live-action that is happening.

That expands the number of markets and betting opportunities available and brings new betting strategies into play as well.

There is a menu link to access the In-Play section of BetUK and clicking on that will bring up the main listing of all sports that are going on.

So at any given time, you could see football matches right alongside tennis and basketball matches in-play.

There is the ability to filter the live action by sport, so it is easy to narrow down the overall view and get to the markets that you want to.

As we look a little more in-depth into the BetUK in-play sports betting, we will focus on some of the bigger markets.

BetUK In-Play Football

Naturally, there is a big focus of football betting in the sportsbook and immediately we were struck by the number of available bet opportunities.

For an international midweek friendly between Portugal and Israel, there were approximately 150 bet options to browse through in-play.

Among that there was the usual expected stuff like the Total Tools, Match Outright, Double Chance, Total Corners etc.

Adding to the dynamic nature of the in-play football betting there were options like Next Goal and Next Goal, No Goal No Bet options.

The markets were available to be filtered to Bet Builder options as well and BetUK’s feature of pre-built bets which they call Pre-packs was there as well.

Among those were options likely Both Teams To Score & Total Corners Over 8.5 or a bigger three-option selection of Total Goals Over 1.5, Total Corner Over 7.5 & Total Cards Over 2.5.

There was also a section for Time Intervals in in-play football betting at BetUK.

These are betting options defined by a set period.

An example of that is the Total goals between 0:00 and 9:59 in the match, or the Total Goals By Portugal from 0:00 to 29:59.

There was also a great graphical representation of the flow of the game, showing possession and important game moments like free kicks, corners and dangerous attacks.

There is also a list of match events that have happened along with a basic stats overview of things like Shots On Target and Shots Off Target.

BetUK In-play tennis

We also find Tennis to be an excellent sport for live in-play betting. There are generally matches from both the ATP and WTA rolling along each way.

So that makes the sport one that presents a lot of in-play opportunities for punters to get into.

For this BetUK in-play betting review we looked at a Grand Slam from the men’s draw of the French Open.

When first landing on the tennis betting match page there was a list of selected markets to look at. Those were the popular, leading markets like the Match Odds and Next Set winner.

Because this was in-play betting, there were markets available that don’t show up pre-match, such as Set 2, Game 2 winner.

That’s a type of thing that falls under the Instant Betting category on the website because they are quick markets that are only open for a very short amount of time.

What we enjoyed greatly about the tennis in-play betting at BetUK was more statistics, giving an excellent overview of what was happening in the match.

There was a full list of the scoring from each completed game in the match, showing how the points went.

Other stats that were on display were things like the First Serve percentage, the number of double faults and the percentage of break point conversions.

In Play Overview

With the integration of a lot of statics on the pages, the in-play services at BetUK look very good.

The basic coverage of different sports is wonderful, everything that you can think of from cricket to basketball, volleyball, eSports and more.

As a note to that, we were impressed by the number of open markets that were available for eSports betting, on the likes of CS:GO and Dota 2 which isn’t found everywhere.

So the overall BetUK in-play betting service rates highly for us, and we particularly liked the organisation of listing events by day on the home page.



Extras & features of BetUK 8/10

Extras & features

Cash Out

There is a cash out feature available at BetUK on select single markets throughout their sportsbook.

Any Open Bets that you have on your account will indicate whether or not they are available for cash out.

That means that it is possible to settle a bet early, for a reduction in odds.

The amount that is offered for a cash out settlement will depend on the state of play in the given event, to which the bet applies.

Virtual Sports

There are virtual sports available to play at BetUK. These are computer-generated matches on sports like football and basketball.

The results of virtual sports are totally random. They are like casino games and every result played is done via a Random Number Generator.

So there’s no real knowledge of sports needed to play virtual sports because things like form and statistics don’t play a part.

Horse racing, football tennis, American football, basketball, greyhounds and motor racing virtual sports are available at BetUK.



BETUK payment options - deposit and withdrawal methods 7/10

BetUK payment options

There are numerous payment methods available at BetUK. They offer Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron and Mastercard and Paypal.

Regardless of what deposit method is used at BetUK, there is a minimum deposit of £10.

When it comes to a BetUK withdrawal, depending on the method that is being used, it can take up to 5 working days to get your funds.

After the withdrawal has been sent out by BetUK it may take your financial institution some time to process the payment to your account.

Accounts need to be verified at BetUK before the first withdrawal.

How to cancel a BetUK Withdrawal

If the money is still being held on BetUK’s end, then it is possible to cancel a withdrawal.

That can be done through the Banking section of the website and by then clicking on Pending Withdrawal.

A link to “Cancel Withdrawal” will be available for any transactions that have yet to be sent from BetUK.

From your cash balance at BetUK, the minimum withdrawal amount is £10.

How to make a BetUK withdrawal

When it comes to the point of wanting to withdraw from BetUK, you can click on your profile icon on the site, then “Banking” and then “Withdraw”.

From where you can select the withdrawal method and the amount which you wish to get. The system will guide you through from there.

Note that verification of your account is probably going to be needed so that they can safely send funds your way.

If you do need to verify your account, BetUK will contact you with instructions.



User-friendliness of the BetUK website 9/10

User-friendliness of website

We thoroughly enjoyed the user-friendliness of the BetUK website, because it has been very well designed.

The operation of the menus make it really easy to get around.

We found it was very easy to hop around without actually touching the main overall sports menu.

That’s because of the number of bets that are right on the home page, both live in-play and upcoming events as well.

With it being possible to filter all of that by sport and markets, then navigation really comes in strongly in this BetUK review.

The theme of the website is blue and white which was quite easy on the eye.

A lot of the pages on the BetUK sportsbook had individual boxes for different bet types and features (such as stats).

So everything was clear on-screen and easy to find.

It was just a quick operation of the website wherever we looked.

The odds on markets are clearly presented and stand out well, so we rank BetUK highly for their design and user-friendliness.



BetUK App review 9/10

BetUK mobile app

There is a BetUK mobile app available for iOS and Android. Note that there is a separate one for their Casino and one for their Sports Betting.

The BetUK Sports betting app gives you everything from the online service condensed down to the mobile platform.

Players can swipe through the app to browse the different sports and leagues to find the right odds.

It’s all right there are your fingertips and we found the swipe operation, which was a more unique navigation tool for betting apps, excellent.

The app is clear and easy to read and we found browsing for acca selections simplified and quick.

It was really accessible and allowed for very quick browsing. The daily price boosts were available through the app.

So from football to horse racing, the full range of sports betting is available in the BetUK app. There is also live in-play betting that can be done right from there as well.

The links are directly available from the BetUK website for their Android and iOS apps.



BetUK Customer Service & Support, Security & Reliability 7/10

BetUK Customer Service

To get some help on the BetUK website there is a Help link in the top main menu.

So you are always only one click away from getting to their Help Centre.

In the BetUK help centre, things are organised by topic.

So if you have a general question about your account or perhaps deposits, then you can click through to the relevant area.

There a FAQs are in there which may be able to resolve the question that you have.

Getting to the Help Centre will also allow you to get to the BetUK Live Chat link that they have for customer service as well.

Here is no direct telephone number on the site to call, so it’s the live chat tool that is promoted.

It is possible to submit a message through the Help Centre to them, via a form.

BetUK offers a safe and fully regulated betting platform. They are licensed and regulated in Great Britain by the Gambling Commission.

They are also partnered with a lot of organisations to help with any gambling issues, like gamblingtherapy.org, BeGambleAware.org and GAMSTOP. It is also possible to set account limits with the operator.



Our BetUK review rating: 9 / 10

In conclusion for our BetUK bookmaker review, we found a lot of very good aspects about this particular bookmaker.

The website is excellent, it’s very well designed, navigation is great and the betting variety with the BetUK sportsbook is just exemplary.

The live in-play betting services, particularly because of their integrated statistics, were smooth and easily accessible.

Timeform integration into their racecards was another big plus for the sportsbook that we found.

With a modern BetUK app on their side as well, we do rate the operator highly on several aspects.

It’s an excellent betting platform, it’s not really flooded with promotions and features, but a very accessible, straightforward and perhaps most importantly of all, has an extensive functional sportsbook.
