I remember putting my first bets on back in the day in high street shops - grabbing the football coupon and the little pen to scribble my picks, then wondering later on how it could be possible that my 15-fold accumulator didn’t come in. I’ve long since graduated to online betting and full-sized pens but still enjoy an acca, along with plenty of other bet types.

I previously worked for an online sports betting company so I've got some decent insight from both the bookie and the punter’s perspective on what makes a betting site great.

Take it from me, guys: Ben really knows his stuff. He’s got bags of experience in iGaming and his wealth of knowledge about sports is seriously impressive. He’s far from the best in the office at FIFA, though. Can’t be good at everything.

Ben’s been clever and put his knowledge to good use on various betting sites to pick up some tidy sums over the years. He’s got a sharp eye for a value darts bet and is constantly managing positions on the Betfair Exchange.

Sports Betting Sites in the UK: Key Factors

You can’t just go jumping into online betting sites with the same reckless abandon with which Granit Xhaka jumps into tackles - you’ll get stung and you’ll lose your money and it won’t be much fun. It’s important to know what to look out for when selecting an online bookie to wager your hard-earned cash at.

Our in-depth bookmaker reviews discuss the pros and cons of each site at length.

If you can’t be bothered to read one of those then the list of factors below should give you a good general idea of what to look for (and what to avoid) when picking a betting site:

📈 Odds

I mean, this is what we’re all interested in ultimately isn’t it. What are the odds like? There are some well-known odds comparison tools that you can check out to give you a general idea of where different bookies stand in terms of offering value to punters via sharp prices, and we’ve also made sure that all of the reviews on My Betting Sites cover this important topic, too.

Remember, the only way to win long-term in this game is to find value, so prices are especially important if that’s your aim.

You shouldn't just settle for a rubbish price because you only have one online betting account and that's all your bookie is offering. Imagine only being able to use Gola footy boots for your Sunday league match when there were a nice pair of Adidas Predators sitting in the changing room ready for you to use. It's the same with bookies - there's no reason not to give yourselves more options.

😎 Variety

Yeah we all love premier league and football in general but what if it’s one of those boring international break weeks? Or even worse for footy punters, what if it’s a summer without a major tournament!! There’s always horse racing. But there are some people in the UK who don’t like football or horse racing (that’s fine too).

Point is, a strong selection of markets on other popular sports like tennis, cricket, golf and US sports at a minimum is critical. Beyond that, it’s always fun to check out other sports you’ve never played or perhaps even heard of - you could unearth an unexpected betting edge!

🔒 Security and Legitimacy

The top betting sites are fully licensed and regulated, and we give extra credit to those that have stood the test of time over many years. Great reputations aren't achieved overnight - a professional and quality service over a sustained period is a necessity, and UK bettors have plenty of bookies to choose from on that front.

💡 Features

The features you want in a betting site completely depend on your betting style. For example, there are plenty of punters who won’t even look twice at an online bookie if it doesn’t have live streaming of their preferred sport. Others may feel that a good cash out function (for example, one that offers fractional cash out) is far more important.

When all the top bookies are offering similar odds on the same markets and events, special features like live streaming, cash out, enhanced odds, and acca insurance are often what set them apart.

🤝 Payment Methods

Most of us in the UK are well-used to seeing a variety of different payment methods on offer both online and offline. You can just waft your watch over the scanner at Waitrose to pay for your Laurent-Perrier, use PayPal to buy that bundle of 5 basic white trainer socks from ASOS, and then give your kid a £5 note (the one that didn’t work in the self-servi ce till) for pocket money.

Given how quickly and widespread the adoption of these different payment methods has been in the UK, it’s important that online bookies offer good selection methods. You’ll see that the bookies we rate highest more often than not provide great payments flexibility.

👌 UX

There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to use a website with poorly thought out menus, jarring colour schemes and just all round irritating features. It’s not really something you can quantify in the same way as some of the other factors in this list but it’s of equal importance.

Basically, do you like the site? Is it easy to use? Can you navigate quickly to the areas you want to visit? Are the gestures on mobile intuitive? Is the colour scheme nice? You get the point. Negative responses to any of these types of questions equal an instant turn off for punters, and rightly so! Don’t put up with bad/lazy design.

📱 Mobile

I’m glued to my mobile for many more hours of the day than is probably healthy. I can’t help it. There’s news and banking and gaming and memes and music and maps and social media and… There’s also betting, obviously. A Gambling Commission survey from 2020 confirmed that the majority of online bettors in the UK wager using their mobile phones. That means online betting operators are missing a trick if they aren’t ponying up to develop genuinely good dedicated apps or mobile sites.

Most of the big brands in the UK do now offer decent mobile versions of their platforms, but there are still some really clunky apps out there.

💬 Support

Literally any business hoping to retain customers should really be putting effort into its customer support functions. Online sports betting sites are no different and if there’s a query about sign up bonus terms or payout on a certain event, you should be able to rely on your chosen bookie to help you out, pronto.

When we research and write bookmaker reviews for mybettingsites.com, we always make sure to check out customer support. In our view, real agents (like, actual humans) on live chat is the quickest and most convenient support experience. Plenty of bookies now have this service available 24/7.

Here's a handy table comparing the scores of our top three ranked bookies across different categories:

Betting Offers and Promotions

Two of the most important factors when selecting an online bookie to bet with are betting offers and betting promotions.

Best Betting Sign Up Offers

The sign up offer in particular is something to look out for. You’ll often find UK sports betting sites happy to give away things like:

  • Free bets
  • Cash back
  • Matched deposits
  • Risk-free bets
If you use these deals right, you’re basically handing yourself the betting equivalent of a first-minute goal.

A huge head start.

New Customer Betting Offers: Editor’s Pick

Ryan Davis

There are plenty of really good betting sign up offers available for UK punters at the moment: It's a benefit of the highly competitive market in this country as operators try to one-up each other.

Parimatch: Bet £5 Get £30 in Free Bets

'Bet Get' offers are really popular and with good reason: They're a fantastic way to boost your bankroll when you start a new account. Bet £5 Get £30 is a pretty top notch deal, and Parimatch is one of the only sites currently offering it.

Free Bets

Free bets are the kings of all betting site offers. Bookies know that it’s absolutely mint to get a freebie once in a while, so loads of sites offer some form of free bet either as part of a sign up offer or an ongoing promotion that existing customers can take advantage of, too.

When you break down these free bet offers and work out exactly how valuable each one is based on things like turnover and minimum odds requirements, a few stand out from the crowd. We’ve collated them into this helpful table:

By the way, if you ever find a decent free bet offer which doesn’t require a deposit, pat yourself on the back because they’re exceedingly rare. To be honest, though, if you were ever going to find one, it would be here on My Betting Sites.

Best Betting Promotions for Existing Customers

How come Little Billy No-Mates gets a £20 free bet today when all I got for signing up last year was a £5 matched deposit?

It’s not fair. The new customers always seem to get the better deals.

Yup, there’s all levels of injustice in this world, and existing customers being excluded from the best deals really is up there as one of the things that irritates people the most.

Thankfully, plenty of the top UK gambling sites that we’ve reviewed offer great promotions for regular punters.

The following types of promotions are regularly pushed at the best online bookies (and some rubbish bookies, too):

  • Free bets
  • Deposit bonuses
  • Odds boosts
  • Early payout
  • Free-to-play predictors

Existing Customer Betting Promotions: Editor’s Pick

Ryan Davis

Just looking at the list above will tell you that there are a ton of good existing customer rewards on offer but, in my opinion:

No bookie takes care of its existing customers better than Paddy Power.

Not only can regular punters take advantage of the loyalty bounses available via Paddy's Rewards Club (including, in Paddy's own words, "whopper free bets"), but free-to-play game Beat the Drop is one of the easiest ways I know of in the UK online betting market to earn yourself genuinely no-deposit free bets.

Best New Betting Sites

BetUK is the best of the numerous new betting sites to launch in the UK in recent years (according to our experts).

Is that Harry Redknapp on the box? What’s he flogging now?

Ah, there’s the predictable joke about his dog’s financial services acumen… ‘Arry and other big-name British sporting celebs are constantly roped in as ambassadors for new betting sites, but that doesn’t necessarily mean those sites any good.

The UK online betting market is pretty crowded, with a decent number of high-quality established players.

That means new UK betting sites really need to offer something exceptional in order to grab a slice of the regular punters pie. We’ve picked out some of the new sites that genuinely are worth checking out below:

Top new UK Betting Companies 2022

  1. BetUK: Revamped and improved
  2. Rhino Bet: Outstanding offers
  3. Parimatch: Low deposit welcome offer
  4. LiveScore Bet: Great for live streaming
  5. BetTarget: Thousands of markets available
  6. Luckster: Good variety of payment methods
  7. Zetbet: Huge European brand
  8. Luckland: Pre-match combo bet boosts

A number of the new betting sites in the UK have actually been around for a while but have only recently obtained a UK licence. At MyBettingsites.com, we only list and recommend bookmakers that are fully licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission.

New Gambling Sites UK: Editor's Pick

Ryan Davis

An outrageously good sign up offer and an equally stupendous selection of footy betting markets, plus daily odds boosts. Sounds good, right? That's because it is good. Parimatch is one of the bigger online sports betting brands in the CIS region but it only recently dipped its toes into the UK market.

Parimatch's entry into Blighty is a right touch for British punters.

If I had to pick the one new operator with the best chance of pushing its way on to the top table next to the established names of British online betting, it would probably be Parimatch.

Betting Apps

There’s an app for everything now, right? WRONG. Amazingly, some bookies in the UK market still don’t have dedicated sports betting apps for Android or iPhone. I mean, crazy. Just crazy. Put your pitchforks down, though:

Most of the top UK betting sites do have nice shiny apps for both iOS and Android - that’s a big part of what makes them the top UK betting sites.
SBK home

SBK is a mobile app-only bookie - we might be seeing more of that in the future.

The majority of British online bettors use their mobile phone as their device of choice, so bookies without solid pocket-friendly punting options are missing a trick. There are plenty of good betting apps to choose from - My Betting Sites’ UK experts consider these to be the best:

Best UK Betting Apps

SBK

Bet £10 get £30 in free bets

Mobile-app only bookie powered by the Smarkets exchange. Excellent integration of social features and attractive pricing with SBK Price+.

Claim £30 offer

New UK, IE & Malta customers only. 18+. Min £10/€10 first deposit using Debit Card or Trustly. Place a bet of £10 at min odds of 1.5. Free bets expire in 90 days. Full T&Cs apply.


Betfair

Money back as cash up to £20
If your first bet loses

Reliable on-the-go betting and trading via separate apps for both sportsbook and exchange - each one as good as the other!

Claim £20 offer

Max £20 refund on first bet. Bet must be placed in first 7 days of account opening. Only deposits made via Debit Card will be eligible for the promotion. T&Cs apply.


Kwiff

Bet £10 Get a £20 Surprise Bet

Fantastic mobile optimisation and odds boosts ('Kwiffs', to use the official parlance) that can be truly off the scale.

Claim £20 offer

New customers & 18+ only. Min. deposit of £10. Qualifying real money bet of £10. Min odds greater than or equal to 1.5 required. E/W bets excluded. Offer credited within 48 hours. Please gamble responsibly. Additional T&Cs apply


UK Betting Apps: Editor’s Pick

Ryan Davis

Ryan Davis

I've used pretty much all of the apps offered by the big dogs of British online betting at some point or another. In the immortal words of Gennaro Gattuso: "Sometimes maybe good, sometimes maybe sh*t".

SBK puts some of the more established players to shame with its super-polished app.

To be fair, when you're a mobile app-only bookie, your app kind of has to be good.

It looks nice, it's easy to navigate and it's got cool integrated social and tipping features that you won't find on many other betting apps in the market. Molto bello.

Best football betting sites

Statistically speaking, most of you are here to look for the best football betting sites (football being the most popular sport to bet on by far in the UK). Maybe Ray Winstone’s been shouting at you just before kick off and you’re a bit scared but also curious to find out whether what he says about Bet365 is true. If so, you’ve come to the right place.

A strong football offering is crucial for any self-respecting online bookie hoping to attract and retain UK punters.

There are loads of great options, from big-name brands that have live streaming of matches involving teams you can’t even pronounce, to new upstarts who pump up their football product with tasty promotions.


The good news for UK punters is that this competition keeps standards high and provides good value opportunities as any betting site that offers rip-off odds or half-baked in play options is soon found out. We reckon that the following are the best options for UK footy punters at the moment:

Top Online UK Bookmakers for Football

  1. Betfair: Trade on the exchange
  2. Bet365: Huge number of markets
  3. Paddy Power: Great bet builder
  4. 888sport: Well-priced odds
  5. Betway: Free bet club
  6. LiveScore Bet: Live streaming
  7. Kwiff: Supercharged odds boosts
  8. Coral: All-round classy product

Best Football Betting Site: Editor’s Pick

Ryan Davis

Ryan Davis

If Brian Cox worked for My Betting Sites and was in charge of this page, he'd probably write something along the lines of: "There are more football markets on Bet365 than there are stars in our universe".

Brian Cox doesn't work for us and there are like, a billion trillion stars in the universe. Nevertheless, the footy options available at Bet365 are truly stellar.

On number of matches and markets available alone, Bet365 blows most, if not all of the competition out of the water.

And that's before we even touch on the fact that Bet365 consistently offers the best pre-match and in-play odds in the market.

If you want to bet on football and you're not already doing it on Bet365, you're missing out.

If you want to take a deep dive (careful you don’t get booked for simulation) into all things football betting, then check out the football booking points betting sites page that we’ve slaved away on. We've also got a page totally dedicated to World Cup betting offers if you fancy some sweaty major tournament bets.

Best Horse Racing Betting Sites

There’s something ultra-British about walking past a boozer in the middle of the day and seeing a few patrons quietly nursing a pint of ale while watching the racing. Often you’ll see a betting coupon or two on the table.

But what if those same folk wanted to bet online? If they were to whip out a brand new iPhone 13 (other expensive smartphones are available), where would they turn to find the best horse racing betting sites? My Betting Sites is where they would (should!) turn.

With races taking place all day every day across the globe, there are plenty of betting opportunities for punters, so sorting the wheat from the chaff is essential.

Most UK bookies have excellent horse racing offerings given that the sport is firmly embedded in British culture (see paragraph above) - our betting experts say these online bookies are a length or two ahead of the field for horse racing:

Top Horse Racing Betting Sites

  1. Ladbrokes: Multiple daily boosts
  2. Betfair: Great for traders
  3. Paddy Power: Various extra place races
  4. Bet365: Wide international selection
  5. BetVictor: Betfinder function
  6. Betway: Free 4 to Win game
  7. Coral: Free Racing Super Series game
  8. 888sport: Excellent live streaming

Horse Racing Bookmakers: Editor's Pick

Ryan Davis

Ryan Davis

I don't bet on racing as much as I do on football, but when I do have a flutter on the horses it's almost always with Ladbrokes. There's something about the name and brand that just screams 'horse racing' to me. Yes, that's a pretty pathetically subjective explanation but this is Editor's Pick so I can do what I want.

Luckily for you lot, my subjective nonsense is backed up by the cold hard facts: Ladbrokes has some of the best coverage around for UK & Irish racing, with live streaming, best odds guaranteed, and extra places on offer all over the shop.

Build Your Own Racecard and Bet Filter features are great and the integrated Racing Post previews and form guides really are the icing on top of a very tasty horse racing cake. Offers for existing customers are available too, including free casino spins guaranteed if you bet on certain races.

All the top bookmakers offer betting site promotions on big racing events like the Grand National, and Royal Ascot. Cheltenham betting offers in particular are some of the best deals you can find each year.

Best Greyhound Betting Sites

  1. BetUK
  2. Parimatch
  3. LiveScore Bet
  4. Luckland
  5. BetTarget
  6. Fansbet
  7. STS

It may not be as popular as it once was, but greyhound racing remains a mainstay of the British sporting calendar and it remains a key sport for British punters.

The usual suspects are among the top UK greyhound betting sites with plenty of markets available, live streaming at the touch of a button and enticing offers for new and returning customers.

Esports Betting Sites

Picture the scene. You’ve just bought yourself a four-pack of Monster and a sharing-size bag of Doritos (obviously not to be shared) and you’re settling in for a long night of matchmaking on your preferred FPS or RTS title. The rest of the squad is online. The excitement is palpable.

    Best Site for Esports Betting: Editor’s Pick

    Ryan Davis

    Ryan Davis

    There are a few decent specialist esports betting sites but they are so niche that I find them a bit inconvenient as it's difficult to bet on anything else. I want it all.

    If you're looking for a good recommendation for esports betting, look no further than Betway.

    There are loads of esports-specific existing customer offers and joining the Betway Esports Club is any easy way to bag a £10 free bet every single week.

    Betway was the first major operator to go all-in on esports and it shows - they're still a long way ahead of the rest.

    Esports is the next big thing (trust me). Once you've absorbed all the info in our Esports Betting page, you'll dominate like you're the Ogre 2 of esports betting:

    Cricket Betting Sites

    Leather on willow is the quintessential sound of British summertime (often accompanied by the popping of champagne corks onto the outfield if you happen to be at Lord’s for a Test). The grandeur of international red-ball cricket endures but white-ball, limited-overs cricket really is where the sport has exploded over recent years.

    The huge success of T20 competitions like the IPL and the Big Bash have ramped up worldwide interest in this genteel colonial pastime, and UK gambling sites have of course ensured that they are riding that wave.

    You’re spoilt for choice in terms of market selections and betting opportunities on cricket in the UK.

    We think the following are the most useful cricket betting sites for British bettors:

      Best Online Cricket Betting Sites

      Paddy Power Cricket

      Up to £50 Cash Back

      Cricket Betting Sites - Editor's Pick

      The cheeky chappys at Paddy Power have put together a very decent cricket betting product.

      Paddy has loads of cricket markets available for both white- and red-ball cricket.

      It shines particularly brightly on the big T20 franchise competitions like the IPL and the Big Bash, and there's often Power Prices (boosted odds) on offer too.

      You've got yourself in with a scratchy 23(71), now you're looking to push on to a half century and get that wagon wheel looking gorgeous. If you're in a similar situation with your cricket betting and need a tiny bit more to really break through, then our cricket betting sites page is for you.

      Betting Site Payment Methods

      The availability of a range payment methods at betting sites should not be understated. These days, punters expect to be able to deposit and withdraw money quickly and with ease. Therefore, offering a good selection is payment options is key for customer retention.

      Bet365 Payment Methods

      The best sites, like Bet365, offer plenty of different payment methods.

      Payment methods typically offered by online betting sites in the UK include:

      • Visa/Mastercard
      • Apple Pay
      • G Pay
      • PayPal
      • Skrill
      • Neteller
      • paysafecard
