Odds - Good

We calculated the margin for Sportybet by analyzing the odds they offer and placed them into one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Good value

Over 5% to 7%: Average value

Over 7% to 10%: Poor value

Football

We got our results by taking the "Match result" odds and also the over/under 2.5 goals odds for different matches in different football leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

Sportybet has an overall margin of 4.71% for football and falls in the good category. In the first section with Premier League and Championship, the margin is at 4.47%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Seria A, the margin is at 3.78%. Finally, taking the Poland Ekstraklasa, Denmark Superligean and Netherlands Eredivisie into account, the margin is at 5.87%.

Sportybet also offers esports betting markets for Dota2, Counter-Strike, and League of Legends. There is an instant virtual league modelled on the EPL that you can play on-demand. There is a wider variety of virtual games that are scheduled by Sportybet.

Range of Bets and Markets: Sportybet offers 600+ pre-match betting options for games in major leagues like UEFA champions.

Sportybet allows three betting modes; single bets are for a single bet; multiple bets are for placing several bets on the same bet slip. A system bet allows some bets to fail while you still recoup some money from the bet slip. Sportybet also allows you to pick the number of games you think will be correct in a bet slip and have a guaranteed win if you are right.

Betting Limits: Sportybet does not have a limit on odds that can be on a bet slip. But there is a limit on the amount that can be staked, set at Kes 999.999. The minimum stake amount is Kes 20.  The maximum payout for a bet slip is  Kes 1 million. It is lower than other bookmakers in the market. The maximum winnings in any 24 hours are Kes 15 million.

In-Play Betting - Good

Sportybet has in-play or live betting. You can watch live games on Sportybet’s TV service that streams live, called SportyTv.  Major games often have 300+ first half betting options and almost 100+ betting options in the second half of big games.

Live betting is available for all 17 sports on the platform. You can bet on esports as well, including Counter-Strike and LoL.

Placing a live bet on Sportybet is very quick, taking less than 5 seconds to register when you have a good internet connection.
