SBOBET.com is an online bookmaker. The website has operations in Asia licensed by the Philippines and operations in Europe licensed by the Isle of Man to operate as an international sports bookmaker. The company offers online gambling on all major sports, online games, racing (parimutuel betting), financial betting and poker in multiple languages.

In February 2009, the Isle of Man-based operations of SBOBET became the first operator licensed in Isle of Man to be granted approval to launch a live dealer casino from the island.

In October 2014, SBOBET launched in the financial betting sector in partnership with TRADOLOGIC. The financial binary products were launched under both Isle of Man OGRA licence and Philippines CEZA-First Cagayan licence.


SBOBET have been the sponsors for various football teams like English teams West Ham United and Leeds United, Irish teams Wexford Youth, Dundalk and St Patrick's Athletic, Welsh team Cardiff City, Indonesian team Persikabo 1973, and Indian team ATK Mohun Bagan, using the alias of SBOTOP.net. Due to concerns raised by representatives of the Premier League about exposing youth to gambling, SBOBET replaced their logo on all Cardiff City youth academy team shirts with that of the Ty Hafan Children's Hospice.

Celton Manx, operator of SBOBET's European subsidiary, was the official Asian betting partner of Swansea City A.F.C., West Ham United F.C., Southampton F.C., Hull City A.F.C. and Norwich City F.C. for the 2013–14 season.

SBOBET were the title sponsors for the first Soccerex Asian Forum held in Singapore.


At the annual EGR Awards organized by eGaming Review Magazine, SBOBET was awarded the "Asian Operator of the Year" award for year 2009 and 2010. SBOBET ranks 11th on the list of Power 50 companies in eGaming Review's 2011 ranking of the 50 most influential operators.


In October 2008, SBOBET was asked to turn over any evidence they might have on the possible match fixing scandal in The Football Association (FA) championship between Norwich City and Derby County. SBOBET denied the FA's request, deeming it was "excessive" and would be a breach of customer privacy Derby County won the game 2–1. In the end, the FA found no evidence that match fixing had taken place.

On 24 September 2009, two Bulgarian news agencies Novinite.com and 24 Chasa Daily published articles that wrongly suggested that SBOBET was responsible for fixing the football match between Levski and CSKA Sofia. The two agencies subsequently published correction articles, stating that SBOBET was not involved in any match-fixing scams, and apologized to SBOBET for publishing the untrue information.

In October 2009, representatives of the Premier League criticised SBOBET for offering live betting on academy football games, maintaining that children and youth activities should not be exposed by international gambling organisations. The bookmaker subsequently suspended betting on academy games and expressed its intention to seek clarification from the Premier League and the Professional Footballers' Association about which football markets it should be allowed to offer.

In October 2014, Singapore Parliament passed the Remote Gambling Bill to ban the entire spectrum of remote gambling, including internet, telephone, interactive television, radio and any other communication technology. The bill will be effective to individual gamblers, facilitators, runners and operators. Although the new law will come into operation from 2 February 2015, SBOBET states that it has a policy not to take bets from countries where making or accepting bets is illegal but the overwhelming majority of its customers come from mainland China where betting is illegal and betting customers often face arrest. New accounts from Singapore IP address are not accepted and there is no Singapore in the drop-down list in the sign-up page, though these can be easily by-passed through the use of a VPN. All accounts will be closed from 1 February 2015, which will comply with the new law. With effect from 12 February 2015, access to the SBOBET is blocked.

1. Odds

The most important aspect of every review is looking at the chances. And SBOBET definitely ranks among the top of the pack.

They're the most powerful in handicaps, particularly Asian handicaps in soccer/world soccer. You will generally see a theoretical payout rate of 98%, which means the same match will be priced at 1,96-1.96 odds. SBO offers odds that are near Pinnacle for most games however, sometimes they are a little more favorable.

In terms of game totals (over/under) in soccer and football, SBO ranks as the top available. They typically offer a payback rate of 99 percent that is incredible.

While SBO is ideal for soccer or football betting, it's ideal to bet on tennis, electronic sports motorsports American teams, and many other renowned sporting events. The odds are good across all markets. If you're looking for an online bookmaker that offers incredible odds and a great selection of odds, then SBO is certainly the most reliable place to place your bets.

2. Game Selection

We can’t say anything bad about the game selection that can be found at SBOBET. You will be able to bet on most big events

The most popular sports available on SBO are:

  • Soccer/football
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Tennis
  • American football
  • Motorsports
  • Mixed Martial Arts
  • E-Sports
  • Ice hockey

There is a clear focus on handicaps, but you’re also able to bet on outright winners, totals and much more. In sports with multiple athletes competing individually against each other, SBO will usually provide matchups between selected players.

3. Limits

SBOBET does not impose personal limits. If you win, you will not be limited, which is very appealing to sharps.

However, there are some normal market limits that apply to everyone. These limits are high in the most popular sports (football, basketball, tennis), but low in niche sports. If you place a maximum bet, the odds may fall, and then you can place more money if you still believe there is value.

On average it is not a problem to place a lot of money with SBO, and in opposition to European soft bookies that are fast to limit the players, SBO is actually a serious bookmaker that allows winners. So we rate it quite highly here.

4. Bonuses

Since SBOBET mostly wants to attract serious players to help them balancing the odds, they are not advertising much with their bonuses. And they have very few of them in general – although all new users will be able to get a first deposit bonus up to 200 euros.

Generally, SBO is a bookmaker that focuses mostly on providing high odds and therefore doesn’t offer regular bonuses or VIP-benefits.

5. Layout and navigation

SBO is a refreshing blue style that is pleasant to take a look at. The layout is reminiscent of standard bookmaker layouts which is not a surprise. It's simple to find the events you're seeking since all sports available are listed on the left-hand side. From there, you can go to the specific event or league you're seeking.

We love navigating through SBO because it's simple and easy to use.

Due to the high volume of users, the site of SBO is sometimes somewhat slow and the loading times can be becoming annoying. This is why we have lowered our rating the website from 10/10 down to 8/10 although the overall layout and navigation work well.

6. Sbobet Mobile

The mobile platform isn't excellent - it's rather messy. It would be fantastic to see SBO developed a modern mobile app or tried to make the mobile browser platform to make it better. As of now it's a negative which is counted down in the overall score. It is recommended to have a access to a tablet or computer when you are planning to bet on SBO.

7. Customer Service

Contact SBOBET's customer service at any moment via live chat or by email. There are also phone numbers for every continent, and if you'd like to save money on calling, SBO also offers help through WhatsApp that makes the calling and messaging completely free.

Usually, you'll get a reply quickly - even emails rarely take more than a few hours. Customer service can help you resolve your problems and is available at any time you're in need of assistance. We believe that they're doing a excellent work in this field.

8. Deposit and Withdrawal

There are a variety of choices when you wish to transfer money from SBOBET. For starters, you can make use of the credit card you have, like one like a VISA or MasterCard. Additionally, you can utilize e-wallets, such as Neteller as well as Skrill. Most of the time you can have your money in your account immediately upon deciding to make a deposit and there's no problems.

If you are looking to withdraw money, it's usually through an the international transfer of funds. It is necessary to complete the KYC process before you can make a withdrawal cash. This involves sending a personal ID as well as proof of address. evidence that you have made a deposit (if you deposit using credit card you need to show that it is owned by you) after which you are allowed to take the money. It is only necessary to go through the procedure once. In the next step, anticipate up to 2-5 days before cash will arrive in your account.
