Review last updated – May 2016

Due to Sporting Bet casino’s continued use of Spielo G2 software – a software group that has been caught offering games that could not have occurred accidentally and in violation of the technical standards many of their clients licenses (i.e. unfairly biased against the player) – Sporting Bet casino are on our Blacklist

Licensing

 - 10 / 10

SportingBet hold the following gambling licenses :

  • United Kingdom Gambling Commission - The UKGC are widely considered to be the most reputable regulators involved in the online gambling market. They do not manage complaints for players directly, instead requiring their operators to appoint a UKGC accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service. As such the value of this license for players depends largely on the professionalism of the ADR service utilised. SportingBet currently use IBAS. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Malta Gaming Authority - In our experience the MGA is the best regulatory authority in terms of the management of player complaints. Their complaints team is open and cooperative in the discussion of player issues and we've managed to resolve a number of credible player issues working with the MGA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Gibraltar Gaming Commission - The GGC is one of the more reputable online gaming regulators, but we are aware of a serious software issue where they failed to uphold their own technical standards. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.

Slots RTP

Sporting Bet casino publish the RTP/House Edge figures for all their slots games.

Comp Points

The Sporting Bet comp point system awards points as follows;

  • 1 point for every £2 on Slots, Hi-Lo, Scratchcards & Games
  • 1 point for every £3 on Table Games & Roulette
  • 1 point for every £5 on Blackjack, Baccarat & Video Poker

Comp points can then be cashed in on a sliding scale depending on your VIP level with a minimum of 1000 points being required to receive £5.

This program is substantially weaker than the standard Playtech comp point program for low VIP level customers and becomes much better as you reach the higher levels.

Closing Thoughts

As long as Sporting Bet are offering games from a provider that has been shown to program their games in an intentionally misleading fashion, we would advise all players to avoid their casino.
