Sbobet – Asian Bookmaker, not restrict its players in the amount of bets. Large selection of events with Asian handicap.
I have focused my attention mainly on European sportsbooks on these pages. However, bookmakers from Asia (most recommended for players from United States) are widely known and very popular in the world of sports betting.
They have both common and very nice peculiarities, especially for the players:
• No limits (if there are, it happens very rarely and within reason) to highs rates
• Have a very wide line and a wide range of markets
• Are loyal to arbitrage bets (“forks”)
• Have High Odds
Most of these bookmakers often do not even have English interface, and it makes difficult betting on their platforms.
There are also widespread registrations by invitation or recommendation from other players.
But Sbobet Sportsbook (visit the site) which will be discussed in our review is an exception to the rule. In order to cater to its clients from English-speaking countries (and not only) the Sbobet has done the following:
• Fully translated its website into English, German, and Spanish
• Added more than 30 ways to deposit/withdraw funds
All this, of course, are not the only advantages of this Asian bookmaker. It is still developing and promising.
During its ten-year history of betting online bookmaker Sbobet has become well-known and popular not only in Asia (which is not so easy, because there are many BO in this region), but also throughout the world. Sbobet has been recognized as the best operator on reception rates in Asia for two consecutive years (2009 to 2010). According to SBR rating, the company has a rating of A-, i.e. refers to the top bookmakers.
Sbobet is also a partner of a number of football clubs in the English Premier League (West Ham, Swansea, Hull, Norwich, and Southampton).

Sbobet – Bets
Interface of betting is classic, but there are some elements that immediately proves that fact that it belongs to the Asian Group of bookmakers.
The Odds are quite high for many sports in Sbobet.
The minimum bet in Sbobet is 1 euro (or equivalent). The maximum bet may differ in Sbobet, but it rarely drops below 1000 euros (I’ve got for example, 2200 euros). Of course, the minimums and maximums as well depend on the Odds and on the types of markets.
Such indices as minimum/maximum betting combined with high rates in Sbobet are not accidental – this bookmaker has slightly smaller catalogue than the larger bookmakers, but just due to this it can afford to restrict their players not significantly. It is no wonder that Sbobet has attracted major players who place thousands and tens of thousands of dollars a day.
So, select the desired event in the menu on the left:
Click on the desired odds, they will all be placed in the card right. There are the following fields in each rate:
• Min/Max – minimum and maximum amount that can be put on the market (in the currency of your account)
• Strategy – a brief commentary, in which case your bet will win, lose (and how much) or will refund depending on the possible outcome. This is especially useful when betting on Totals and Handicaps for beginners who are still poorly oriented in the intricacies of such rates.
• Stake – bet amount is noted here
• Est. win –the winning amount is displayed here, in case if the bet wins. Just here, you can enter the amount you want to win, and in the “Stake” will be inscribed the desired rate.
To make multiple bets in the bookmaker Sbobet, you need to press the “Multiple bet” (in brackets – the number of events available for this rate). This will open a table with all the available events. Next – mark the desired outcomes in a card; fill in the amount and place Multiple Bet.
