Sky Vegas Promo Code
Currently there is no promo code but signing up through the links on this site will give you a £10 no deposit bonus AND a massive £1,000 deposit match!
Your Sky Vegas Deposit match comes in the form of a 200% Match up to £1,000.
When entering the Sky Vegas promo code ‘WELCOME’ you will get an instant £10 NDB, however you cannot have claimed a bonus anywhere else on SkyBet. The £10 is not withdrawable but you can cashout any winnings without WR. For a list of games see the skyvegas website.
Using the ‘WELCOME’ promo code will also entitle you to a 200% bonus on your first deposit up to £1,000! This bonus is unlocked as you wager, for example wager £25 on slots get £1 of the bonus unlocked. This is essentially 4% cashback making some slot games great value! Table games such as roulette only count at 10% of the speed as slots, so you need to wager £250 on roulette for example, to unlock £1.
Sky Poker Promo Code
Chances are if you have Sky TV you would have seen adverts for the popular Sky Poker room, currently new players can £10 free to test out the site and a 200% match up to £500 when making their first deposit!
What separates Sky Poker from most other Poker rooms in the UK such as Ladbrokes and Bet365 is the fact they create and develop their own software, which means you are only playing against other Sky Poker players, this leads to less professional grinders and a more recreation environment.
Sky Poker also doesn’t allow HUDs which is a big turnoff for the professionals.
Using the Sky Poker Promo Code ‘POKER’ during registration gives you a £10 no deposit bonus. The £10 can only be used in poker tournaments or SNGs up to a value of £10. You can use it for multiple small buyins i.e. £1.10 sngs. Any winnings from the £10 bonus are yours to keep and fully withdraw-able. However if this is your first withdrawal you may need to make a deposit first, your withdrawal will then be sent to this deposit method. This is inline with gambling regulations and KYC (know your customer) procedures.
As well as a £10 NDB this sky poker bonus code will give you a 200% on your first deposit or transfer to sky poker. The maximum bonus is £500 (£250 deposit). Unlike casino or bingo bonuses poker bonuses are not credited instantly, but released in £10 chunks when you play real money cash games or tournaments. As you start generating rake (fees) the bonus is released in to your account (and can be withdrawn) this means if you hit a big tournament win you don’t have to finish wagering your poker bonus before withdrawing it. Players have 30 days to complete the wagering, any unearned bonus will be forfeited.
Sky Casino Promo Code
Sky casino is a relatively new offshoot of Sky Vegas, new players can get a £20 No Deposit Bonus + 200% Match up to £500! Sky Casino runs on Playtech software offering you popular games such as the Marvel Slots Series.
There are currently no promo codes but to claim the bonus above simply visit the Sky Casino link here.
Your £20 NDB is available if you are new to sky and haven’t claimed promotions anywhere else on Sky (i.e. poker/bingo/vegas etc). The wagering requirement on the £20 is 50x so £1,000 required in wagering. Table and card games only count towards 20% of the wagering requirement while slots count 100%. Unlke other casinos their is no max cashout for the NDB.
To claim the 100% deposit match you must make your first deposit at Sky Casino (or transfer) it will then be matched up to £500. You will be offered the bonus after making a qualifying deposit. Wagering requirement is 20x deposit + bonus. So for the maximum £500 match you will need to wager 20 x (£500 + £500) = £20,000. Slots count 100% and table games 20%.
Sky Bingo Promo Codes
Although sky bingo don’t currently have any promo codes you can claim the following by clicking this link:
Deposit £5 get £40!
£1,000 free sunday bingo room
£1,000,000 monthly giveaway!
Sky Bingo is a popular UK focused Bingo Room offering great ongoing loyalty rewards and custom software. Players get access to a range of slot games as well as instant win scratchcards etc.
The £40 bingo works the following way. Make your first deposit of £5 to skybingo (or make your first transfer to skybingo) and you will get the following:
- £25 non withdrawable bingo bonus
- £10 Rainbow Riches Bingo Bonus
- 7 days access to free bingo room
This bonus will be credited once you wager through your initial £5.
The £25 bonus is non-withdrawable and you must wager it 3x, once you have completed the WR any winnings are yours to keep. You also have a month in order to wager the bonus. Also not you have 7 days from your £5 deposit/transfer in order to wager it and unlock the bonus!
Your £5 deposit will also unlock a £10 “Rainbow Riches bingo” bonus. This £10 bonus is also subject to the same terms as the £25 bingo bonus. You must wager it 3x and any profit from the £10 is withdrawable.
The 7 days free bingo is accessible from the time of your first bingo deposits. You will be given access to a special ‘newbies’ room along with all other 1st time depositors. The room is open from 5pm-9pm every day and allows you to win real cash prizes (with no wagering requirement). 7 days after your first deposit your access to this room will be revoked.
As with most major sites Credit and Debit cards are accepted with no fees. You can also link your paypal account for easy deposits and withdrawals. Sky Bet also accept major wallet systems such as Neteller and Skrill.
Withdrawals take a few hours if you have made a withdrawal before, if it is your first withdrawal you may need to complete KYC procedures to verify you are over 18 and the card holder.
Sky don’t charge you for deposits or withdrawals but if you are using a credit card you should double check with your bank first, some banks such as Barclays have been known to charge fees or high interest rates if deposing to a gambling sites (they often treat gambling transactions as cash advances)
So what’s the best option?
Personally I prefer Neteller, they are setup solely for gambling sites, it’s also useful to keep all your gambling transactions separate from your home/work accounts, this way you can keep track of your monthly poker expenses/losses/profits etc. Neteller don’t charge you to deposit or withdraw from gambling sites, however they charge fees to withdraw from your neteller account (usually about £5 for a bank withdrawal. sometimes free) you can withdraw cash by a MasterCard debit card they send to your by post and they charge a similar amount as a credit card company, i.e. £1.50 per withdrawal.
Depositing to these sites are instant, with few exceptions. Sometimes you may activate a ‘fraud alert’ from your bank, your bank should phone you and ask if your transaction is legitimate, if it is you can make the transaction again. Sometimes betting sites will automatically lock your account if it is your first transaction this is to protect against fraud or they suspect you may be underage. If this happens at Sky they will sort it out in a few hours.
About Sky Bet!
Sky bet are a UK focused company, they don’t accept players from many countries (if you country is not on the accepted list see bet365 for a good alternative). This is a list of countries currently accepted by Sky Bet.
- United Kingdom
- Channel Islands
In December 2014 Sky sold a controlling 80% share of Sky Bet to CVC Capital Partners which value the company at around £800,000,000 with operating profits of around £50,000,000 at the time. Sky Plc retains 20% of the company.
In june 2014 Sky Bet reported 18% growth thanks to finally getting onboard with mobile devices, a move which took a long time, especially when compared to innovative companies like Bet364
Sky Bet is based in London but also has offices in Leeds. Generally speaking employees of sky are happy with employment conditions but feel overworked and don’t like the strict ‘corporate culture‘ that is so popular in big companies these days.
Getting in touch with Sky Bet is pretty easy, they offer email, live chat phone support as well as Twitter responses.
Response times are pretty good, the few times I’ve needed to contact them, and the replies are all from there UK centre which is obviously a plus. I’ve never needed to phone them so can’t comment on the quality of that.
Sky Bet Responsible Gambling
Any gambling company worth their salt takes responsible gambling incredibly seriously, this means allow people to self-exclude or set limits quickly and easily without jumping through hoops. Personally I think Responsible Gambling is a big issue and if you have a gambling problem you obviously shouldn’t be signing up to any of these sites in the 1st place (see support options at bottom of page). A Good betting company will always have an interface allowing you to instantly set limits or even ban your account and Sky Bet is no exceptions. Bad companies will often ask you to email (or even worse phone) in your self exclusion request which can be humiliating for problem gamblers.
SkyBet has always been based in the UK and been licensed by Alderney and regulated by the gambling commission and paid tax to the UK government, whereas many other gambling operations relocated offshore to avoid this. However in 2014 the UK government insisted that all gambling operations who take UK customers must pay a 15% levy on all profits from such customers. This new law also gives UK players extra protection as it makes it harder for illegal overseas sites to take UK customers or simply refuse to pay them.
Sky Betting and Gambling on Social Media
In 2015 Social Media is more important than ever and a big Social Media presence does wonders for brand awareness and marketing efforts.
Sky Bet have a main Twitter and Facebook account as well as small accounts for Sky Bet Support and football leagues. The Sky Bet support is very useful for getting help on non account matters such as betting queries or bonus offers.
