Skybook (visit site)


Skybook Website

If you bet sports on a regular basis I’m sure you’ve lost your fair share of games by just ½ a point. This is why you need Skybook; they offer a free ½ point on all football games. We’re not talking some hour long once a week specials either. 24 hours per day 7 days per week if you bet on football you’ll get a free half point. The only exception is games that have a spread of 3 or 7. In addition to football ½ points each Friday Skybook clients are awarded a free ½ point on all basketball wagers regardless of the spread.

You’ll notice on our guide we rate Skybook a B Sportsbook. The only reason their rating is not an A related to their limited banking options. The Skybook customer service, financial security and cash out reliability ranks amongst the top in the industry. Since 1997, Skybook Sportsbook has built a solid name in the online gambling industry for their excellent accountability and service. Skybook has built an unparalleled reputation for prompt payouts, total client satisfaction and steadfast reliability. You will not find a better sportsbook for giving value to their clients no matter what amount of wagering experience they may have.

Geographical Restrictions: None, clients from all locations welcomed.

Skybook Bonus and Promotion Offers

Sign up bonus: The Skybook sign up bonus is a 50% intial deposit match up to $250 free. Players need to request this bonus through Skybook live website chat after making thier initial deposit. The bonus and deposit amount must be rolled over 5 times prior to making a cash out.

Important Note: The Skybook bonus is paid in free play credits. There is a huge difference between cash bonuses and free play credits as you’ll see from the example below.

The example:

Book 1 offers a $250 cash bonus
Skybook offers a $250 free play bonus.

After signing up at both books you bet the Marlins +100 for the full $250 at each book. The Marlins win.

At Book 1 you get back the $250 you risked plus the $250 you won
At Skybook you get back only the $250 you won. The free play has been used and is not credit back to you regardless if you win or lose the bet.

The skybook bonus is still quite generous at 50%, you just need to be aware it is a free bet credit and not a cash bonus.
