Sky Bet is the online betting arm of the larger holding company, Sky Betting & Gaming. Along with Sky Vegas, Sky Casino, Sky Poker and Sky Bingo the company seeks to provide customers with a complete online gaming experience.
The origins of Sky Bet are fairly complicated. It all started due to BSkyB’s growth plans. When they acquired Sports Internet Group at the turn of the century they also picked up a tiny betting company called Surrey Sports as part of the deal. A couple of years later Surrey Sports was rebranded to Sky Bet as the company decided to push ahead with an online betting business.
Fast forward four years and more acquisitions added Totalbet and UKbetting into the Sky Bet family. Over the years they added further brands but due to their relatively recent formation, Sky Bet remain one of a select group of online bookies who do not have any physical shops.
Even more recently, in 2015, BskyB sold a controlling stake of the company to CVC Capital Partners, valuing the company at £800 million. Sky retain a 20% stake in the company and their branding will remain for years to come following a long term licensing deal.
Sky Betting & Gaming have numerous offices around the world but their headquarters are in Leeds where the trading staff for Sky Bet price up markets across all of their platforms.
When betting with Sky Bet there are a number of possible payment methods, the full list is as follows:
