Skybet was started in 2000 as a small online betting company. First, they were BskyB, but in 2002 they were rebranded into Skybet. In 2014 they were acquired by CVC Capital Partners who took over 80% of the company ownership. Last year, in 2018, Sky Betting was bought by The Stars Group. Currently, Sky Bet holds gambling and betting licenses from both the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC).

Markets & Odds, In-Play Betting
The layout of the SkyBet sportsbook is
exceptionally user-friendly, and players don’t need to do much browsing as
everything is easily found and linked together.
They cover all sports for which there
is an interest in betting and as expected Football is leading the lineup. They offer
the best odds in the betting industry for specific events like football matches.
Their live in-play section is also well
rounded and has it all, from live commentary and statistics to live streaming
matches. Compared to other top-class bookies, the selection of live streaming
events is often smaller. But other than that, their live in-play section is in
line with the best ones in the industry.
The website is mobile-friendly and
easily adapts to any device. Therefore, no need to download and install any
apps. No matter the device or the OS, the website layout looks great, and all
features are available.
