SBOBET is a popular online bookmaker that offers an extensive selection of sports betting markets with competitive odds. They have a huge presence in Asia and operate under European regulations. They are licensed by the Philippines (Asia) and the Isle of Man (Europe), which allows them to legally operate as an international sports gambling casino. Their casino and sports games are a great option for players from all over the world.
They are especially strong in soccer/football handicaps and Asian total goals markets, where they often have a theoretical payback rate of over 98%, beating even Pinnacle’s odds. They also have excellent odds on a variety of other markets, including tennis, e-sports, motorsports, and American sports leagues. In addition, they offer bets on special events, financial props, and bandy.
The site has a mobile app for both iOS and Android, which makes it easy to place bets on the go. The app is well designed and features a user-friendly interface. However, it doesn’t include all of the options available on the desktop version. Users should be aware that their card issuer may charge a fee for using the mobile platform.
Sbobet’s customer service is top-notch. Their agents are knowledgeable and can answer questions in multiple languages. They are also available around the clock via live chat, email, and phone. Despite their stellar reputation, Sbobet has been accused of match-fixing. In one incident, Sbobet offered bets on academy football games involving Derby County and Norwich City. This was a major scandal that rocked the UK gambling industry. The company has since denied any connection to organized crime, but the controversy tarnished the brand.
