In the world of sports, Sky is one of the biggest names. It goes for both streaming and broadcasting. But did you know that Sky UK Limited is also very active in the sports betting industry?
The betting wing is called Sky Bet. In Ireland, when a punter sees the name “Sky”, it immediately creates a sense of security and convenience. As part of the convenience package, the bookmaker is offering an Android app.
In this post, we’re going to review the app in terms of its user experience and sports betting opportunities.
When you first download and install the app, you may think that it looks exactly like the mobile website. It’s somewhat true. The same layout is carried over along with the colour palette of the brand.
The app is only for the sportsbook. If you want other services from Sky and want to use the app, you have to navigate to the corresponding website and download it from there.
On the home interface of the app, you can find the featured events of the day. It might include any sports from anywhere in the world. Because, as you may know, the sports fixtures are constantly updating.
You can navigate to the In-Play tab to find all the live events at your disposal. In fact, many of the events on Sky Bet Ireland come with live streaming features. For the ones that support it, you will find a tiny play button.
You can rearrange your bet slip in any way you want in this app. Both pre-match bets and live bets are accepted at the same time.
A unique feature that we really liked is the GroupBets. Basically, it allows you to create private groups with your friends or fellow punters. It helps with keeping track of large bets as well as opens the door for a group Acca (Accumulator bet).
The “Request A Bet” is another great feature. As the name suggests, it allows you to “request” a bet that’s not currently offered by the bookmaker. You can create your own markets! All you have to do is send the request and wait for customer support to get back with a link.
Pretty much all the sports you can find on the desktop or mobile website are available on the Android app. Usually, the most high-voltage markets are featured on the home interface. To get the full list of events, you need to navigate to the A-Z Sports library.
Common markets like American Football, Basketball, Boxing, Chess, Cycling, Football, Golf along with unique markets like virtual football, volleyball, Winter Olympics, wrestling, and speedway are available on the app.
The Sky Group is very much aware of how much the punters love promotions in Ireland. There are a lot of them listed on the Sky Bet website as well as the Android app.
The most intriguing feature in our opinion is the “Today’s Promotion” section. This is where you get lots of daily promotions and offers. Different types of free bets, boosted odds, and extra places are available for betting.
Apart from the daily promotions, you also get huge prize pools, free spins, and various tournaments.
To unlock all of the features we discussed so far, you first need to download the app. Although it’s a very straightforward process, we don’t want to keep any gaps in the information. So, here’s our guide on how to download the Sky Bet Android app in Ireland.
We would be shocked if Sky Bet in Ireland didn’t offer a mobile app. A huge part of Sky’s business is built on customer satisfaction. Needless to say, the bookmaker passed our test with flying colours!
