We Review the Best UK Online Gambling Sites

Betting sites can sometimes feel a little bit intimidating. All those numbers on the screen like you're suddenly in a weird sporting dimension of The Matrix when all you want to do is stick a tenner on your team. All we would say is you’ve got two choices:

  1. Listen to Big Dave down the pub who’s convinced this new betting system that his dad's mate's cousin told him about will make him a millionaire, or;
  2. Utilise the combined knowledge of over 40 betting experts from around the world to pick the online bookie that suits you best.

It’s ultimately your choice but I'll add that we’re giving you all this for free! Big Dave says you owe him a pint and a bag of pork scratchings for enduring his betting sites advice.

We cover multiple territories on mybettingsites.com but the UK is our main focus (you can find links to info on international betting sites via the UK flag icon at the top).

Frequently Asked Questions About Sports Betting Sites

We ain't got time for dodgy bookies and their untrustworthy sites - you'll only find the crème de la crème on this page. With the info we've put together, we aim to resolve any queries or worries you might have about signing up to a new bookie. Here are some of the most frequent questions we get:

How do I Claim Betting Sign Up Offers?

There are loads of different sign up offers available, each with slightly different requirements, terms and conditions. Your best bet (pardon the pun) is to check out the list of top betting site sign up offers at My Betting Sites: On that list and in our in-depth bookmaker reviews you’ll find all the information you need on how to claim these offers.

Which is the Best Betting Site for UK Punters?

This can depend on what you are looking for in a bookie, but the below five are certainly among the best overall:

What Payment Methods do Online Bookmakers Accept?

Online bookies have cottoned on to the fact that punters want deposits and withdrawals to be convenient and quick. Payment methods commonly offered by UK online bookies include:

  • Visa/Mastercard
  • Apple Pay
  • G Pay
  • PayPal
  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • paysafecard
  • Bank Wire
  • Cheque

Are UK Online Gambling Sites Safe?

With online betting, as with any online product, it’s good to do some due diligence before you go ahead and spend your hard earned money. At My Betting Sites, we only review bookies and their offers if they are properly licensed to operate in the relevant jurisdiction. The key thing in the UK, for example, is to make sure your bookie is licensed by the Gambling Commission.

What Betting App is Best?

Bookmakers hoping to attract British bettors simply don’t get far nowadays unless they can offer a top-rate mobile app experience. That’s because most of you who bet online in the UK do so using your mobile devices. The My Betting Sites team reckons these betting apps are the best of the bunch:

Where Can I Find Betting Offers for New Customers?

Which Betting Sites Have Offers for Existing Customers?

Plenty of bookies entice you in with attractive sign up offers, but there aren’t as many that remain generous for existing customers. We think the best betting sites for existing customer offers are:

I am Not Based in the UK. Which Betting Site is Best?

The betting sites listed on this page are the ones that are the best for UK users. We also have pages dedicated to sports betting sites in other countries, but unfortunately, some nations are restricted from all betting and even we can do nothing about that.

Most online sports betting sites offer punters the same core product: Prices are offered on particular sporting outcomes. But when you get into the nitty gritty, it’s clear that there are lots of differentiating factors between the top online bookies. Some, for example, opt to focus on high payout rates and sharp odds, others prioritise promotions and special offers.

At My Betting Sites, we dig down deeper than most into what really sets each bookie apart from its competitors.

Some online bookies in the UK are clearly a cut above the rest. That's because their product is packed full of features that keep punters engaged. We reckon the key features that help an online bookie really stand out in the UK market include:

    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

    If you were reading through the ‘key factors’ list above thinking to yourself, ‘hold on a minute, there’s some glaring omissions here’, then you’d be right. Two of the most important factors when selecting an online bookie to bet with are offers and promotions. So important, in fact, that we’ve given them a whole entire little section to themselves.

    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

    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.

    BetUK: Bet £10 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 £10 Get £30 is a pretty top notch deal, and BetUK is one of the best sites currently offering it.

    If your interest is piqued but not satiated, fear not as we have entire pages on My Betting Sites focused on betting offers and betting promotions:

    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.

    More free bets... more free bets...

    MORE FREE BETS!

    What’s that you’re shouting at me? You want more free bet stuff? Jeez, OK, OK. Let me just point you in the direction of the dedicated free bets page we made for you, for free:

    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

    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

    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 doing sponsorship work for new betting sites, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re 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. Parimatch: Outstanding offers
    3. LiveScore Bet: Great for live streaming
    4. Luckster: Good variety of payment methods
    5. STS: Huge European brand
    6. ZetBet: Up to 77% boost on accas
    7. Mr Play: Impressive football coverage
    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.

    Gosh, wouldn't it just be fantastic to read more about new betting sites? (pssst... click the link below).

    New Gambling Sites UK: Editor's Pick

    Ryan Davis

    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 a dedicated sports betting app. 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

    Deposit £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 users only. Min. £10/€10 first deposit only using Debit Card or Trustly. Free bets expire in 90 days. T&Cs apply.


    Betfair

    Money Back in Cash up to £20

    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

    New customers only. Min odds 1/5 (1.2). If you place a multiple at least one selection must meet the min odds requirement. Max £20 refund. Payment restrictions apply. Qualifying bet must be placed and settled within 30 days of account opening. 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 us are here to look for a bookie to bet on the footy with. 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 betting sites and football booking points betting sites pages that we’ve slaved away on:

    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? 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

    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 Cheltenham Festival, Grand National, and Royal Ascot. Check out our dedicated Horse Racing Betting Sites page for more info:

    Golf Betting

    There are few worse feelings in sports betting than seeing your pick shank a drive into a water hazard and miss the cut.

    There are few greater feelings in sports betting than seeing your outside pick surge up a tournament leaderboard.

    Bookies know how popular golf is in the UK - especially the majors - which means there’s often a great selection of markets to choose from, from outright winners of a four-day major through to hole winners and player props. Our in-depth reviews have unearthed the following bunch of bookies as best for golf:

    Best Golf Betting Sites

    1. Paddy Power: Often pays the most places
    2. Betway: Great betting offers selection

    I use Betfair to wager on the sportsbook and trade on the exchange, and golf is a sport that really helps to highlight this operator's strengths.

    The exchange is a really good place to catch fantastic value - if you're shrewd about it you can get matched at incredible prices pre-off and even during play.

    In some events, you'll have to wrestle with low liquidity that will make it difficult for you to exit a position. In those circumstances, you can just hedge on the exchange.

    That's what so brilliant about Betfair - you've got it all under one roof.

    As usual, we've got a whole other page with a load more info on this if you want it:

    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

      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.

      Of all the top full-service online bookies, Betway is without a doubt the best for esports betting.

      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:

      Darts Betting Sites

      Things that really mean Christmas is coming in the UK:

      • The Coca Cola TV advert where Santa drives the truck
      • Awkward office parties
      • Pigs in blankets in the shops
      • Wide panned shot of a rowdy crowd in fancy dress at Ally Pally for the PDC World Darts Championships.
      Stand up! If you love the darts, stand up! If you love the darts…

      We love the darts at My Betting Sites and, fortunately for us, so do many of the UK’s top online bookies. And let me clarify - darts is not just for Christmas, it's quality entertainment all year round.

      There are all sorts of different bets you can take on both individual darts matches and on tournament outrights and, in our estimation, these are the best sites for you to have a punt on the arras:

      Betting on Darts: Best Bookies

      1. Bet365 - best for live streaming
      2. Coral - plenty of odds boosts
      3. Betfair - good for bet requests
      4. BetVictor - loads of markets
      5. 888Sport - sharp odds
      6. William Hill - sponsors the PDC World Champs
      7. BoyleSports - classic darts bookie

      I've been to the darts a few times. I don't remember much (the PDC World Championship at Ally Pally is basically like British Oktoberfest with a dartboard).

      Betting on the arras its great fun - it's a fast-paced, stats heavy sport so there's plenty of opportunity to win big.

      I usually turn to Bet365 to place my darts bets.

      Why? Mostly, because it's got so much action available on live streaming, but also because invariably has the most markets and the best prices.

      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:

        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:
