Sports Betting Markets – 30+ Sports
There is certainly no shortage of sports at SportNation, with pre-match, in-play and outright markets being available in their droves. As you would expect from a British bookie, football, horse racing and tennis feature heavily, however 30+ sports are found in total, including diverse events from the world of Esports, Water Polo and even Bandy. It is not just high profile sporting events that are available to bet on either, with lower league football, challenger tennis, minor Esports tournaments and local horse races being found at SportNation. All sports are conveniently listed down the left-hand side of the page, with punters being greeted by ongoing live markets as soon as they enter the SportNation site.
- Two different Welcome offers
- New well-designed sportsbook
Live Betting at SportsNation
In terms of live betting markets at SportNation, football, tennis, golf, cricket and basketball options are available daily, with the bookie making it clear as to just how prices are changing. Odds are updated constantly, with many markets being accompanied by useful graphics and statistics. For example, punters will be able to see which part of the pitch the ball is in during a football match, as well as possession, shots and yellow card statistics. This is particularly useful given the fact that no live streaming is currently available at SportNation, aside from UK & Irish horse races, something which will come as a disappointment to many potential customers. There is some good value to be found in terms of in-play markets at SportNation however, especially when it comes to backing teams or players to come from behind to win.
Betting Odds – Competitive, Not Fantastic
Odds found at SportNation are competitive, however they struggle to offer anything overly appealing, with prices generally sitting at around 94%. Prices tend to be the most generous when it comes to more diverse markets, such as Esports and MMA, with odds on football, tennis and darts falling behind some of their rival bookies. Odds are available in fractional, decimal and American formats, catering for punters in different regions in the process. It is worth noting that best odds guaranteed is available on all UK & Irish horse races, however we will discuss this promotion in greater detail later on in this SportNation review.
Bonuses & Promotions
One area in which SportNation does excel is promotions. Not only does a generous bonus await new customers, while a large number of ongoing offers aid existing punters. Those signing up at SportNation can claim a 50% deposit bonus up to £125, with the promo code SNWEL125 being required. Valid once per customer, a maximum deposit of £250 will be 50% matched by the bookmaker, with bonuses expiring after 90 days. The total bonus amount must be wagered 6x, at min odds of 7/10 (1.7), before withdrawals can be made. Unlike other bookies, there are no restrictions in terms of payment methods.
On top of this, a host of ongoing promotions were available at the time of writing this review, including the following:
VAT Insurance – Available on selected Premier League football matches, punters can claim a refund as a free bet should your pick score a winning goal that is then disallowed by VAR. A maximum refund of up to £250 is available, with free bets being credited within 24 hours, before being available for 7 days.
