Welcome to Betting-Sites.co.uk – a website all about the wonderful world of betting and gambling online. The site features two main sections – one for sports betting and one for casinos. In each section you’ll find reviews of trusted, reputable and recommended places to bet online as well as various guides on how to do it.

As the shrewd among you may have already noticed, the information on this site is primarily aimed at a UK audience. That’s not to say that non-UK punters won’t find the information useful (and a lot of it will be exactly the same regardless of your country of residence) but if you’re not a Brit, you may find that some of the offers and bonuses are slightly different to the ones we list here.

So, without further ado, let’s get stuck straight in with a list of our top 5 favourite online betting sites.

Best Betting Websites

We have also written detailed reviews of all of the betting sites featured on our website, you can find links to these in the reviews section of our site. But for those of you want a little bit more information than found in the table above, but not a full review, we've compiled the following summaries of our five favourite bookmakers and betting sites.

1. Bet365 - Huge Bookmaker With Great Products

Bet365 are the Daddies of online betting, with more customers around the world than any other bookie. Based in Stoke-on-Trent, they used to have a string of high street betting shops, but sold them to Coral (see below) in order to focus on their online activities.

New customers can get a massive 100% bonus on their first deposit in the sportsbook worth up to £200. They also have a Playtech powered casino which comes with a 150% bonus worth up to £150. And if you want more games than that, you'll find NetEnt slots in their Vegas tab.

2. Coral – Trusted UK High Street Bookie

Coral have been around for donkeys years, with a strong presence both online and on the high street. Recently, however, they’re really come into their own with their online product – with a redesigned easy to use website, fantastic mobile site and some cracking offers, you’d be daft not to check them out.

New customers get a £20 matched bet on their first deposit and bet of just £5, plus an amazing casino bonus – £50 when you deposit £10! Coral also run a ton of money back specials and promotions for most major sporting events and hit the headlines recently when their football jackpot paid out a massive £1,000,000.

3. Betfred – 'The Bonus King'

Betfred are another staple of the UK high street, with shops pretty much on every corner in big cities. They are owned by Fred Done (hence the name – Bet Fred, get it?) who goes by the self appointed nickname of ‘the bonus king’. He lives up to the name too – with generous welcome bonuses and frequent betting offers.

New customers can get a £30 free bet and £30 casino bonus when registering and placing their first real £10 money bet. Or go for the full £60 in the casino (Playtech) on a £10 deposit. Like Coral, Betfred also run plenty of offers to keep you happy, as well as a number of unique markets (many of which have now been copied by other bookies) – including Goals Galore and 30 Minute Limit.

4. BetVictor – Best Odds In The UK

BetVictor is the new name for Victor Chandler who also started out with a chain of high street betting shops. They have since sold off the majority of their physical presence in order to focus on their online product, but still maintain a small handful of shops here and there. The main selling point for BetVictor are the odds – and for the past couple of years they have officially had the best overall and average odds for football betting. Combine this with regular offers and you have yourself a great site.

New customers can claim a straightforward £25 matched bet after signing up, as well as one of the easiest casino bonuses in the business – a no minimum deposit £175 bonus that’s released as you play. The casino uses our favourite software – NetEnt, and also comes with not one but four live casinos.

5. Sky Bet – Weekly Free Bets

Sky Bet is the online betting division of the Sky TV – a behemoth of a company with the resources and influence to take on the high street brands at their own game. Innovation is the name of the game for these guys, who are always looking to try something new with their offers and products – you can even bet through your TV, if that strikes your fancy. Both their mobile and desktop sites are fantastic in terms of usability and have odds that rival even the most generous bookies. Definitely another one to take a look at, if you haven’t already.

The welcome bonus at Sky Bet is a bit different to the other bookies mentioned above (but then again, Sky aren’t a traditional bookmaker, are they..) – as well as a £10 completely free bet when you sign up, you can claim a £5 free bet every week.  That's a lot of free bets!

Their online casino is called Sky Vegas and offers players completely free £10 bonus – no deposit required. After this you'll also be entitled to claim a 200% bonus on your first deposit, up to a whopping maximum of £1,000.
