The Sportingbet website is very pleasing on the eye, adopting a nice blue and white colour scheme to good effect. The latest events being covered In-Play are slap bang in the middle of the homepage and you can scroll through several pages of live events and what is about to be covered In-Play by this firm. Indeed, this is the really impressive part of the site and the live console is wonderfully dynamic, with the match score and latest incidents neatly chronicled along with the odds updating in real time.
Elsewhere on the homepage is a rotating graphic which highlights the other big upcoming events, while it’s also nice to see a free bet offer displayed in a clear fashion rather than tucked away. It’s also good that Sportingbet use both the right-hand and left-hand menu on the homepage to promote sportsbook promotions rather than try to cross-sell their other products to customers. There are also a long list of thumbnails all the way down the middle of the page so you can find plenty of choice!
