They have recently added a reward scheme (more about this further in the review) for customers on every bet placed. SportNation excels in putting the customers first, it is both refreshing and honest to see genuine customer care.

Appearance and Betting Markets
SportNation is a very sleek and simplistic looking website, it is easy to use with a clear and clean layout. The use of darker colours in the majority of the site makes it easy to highlight the areas you want to notice.
The scores are in a bright orange and teams in a clear white to make it both easy on the eyes and simple to navigate.
It may not have all the markets you are looking for, but it has a pretty extensive list. For that reason, we will solely focus on the football (Soccer) market.
At first glance it has all the big leagues in football, we are talking about the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, etc. Of those “big” leagues, it has over 100 different markets to choose from, giving a real sense of depth and choice for placing your bets.
But it also has some of the more niche markets to bet on, whilst randomly selecting a league we clicked on the German Third Division. In that, they had over 60 different markets to choose from, which is quite impressive for a more niche league.
Live Betting and Streaming
It is the norm for all online bookies to have an in-play section, of course, SportNation is no different. We do have to say, it does feel a lot less clunky and easier to navigate than some of the bigger websites.
Again for the relatively new site, it is amazing how many different markets and leagues they offer. Like the rest of this site, the in-play section is fairly simplistic, but it’s functional and has exactly what you need.
Sometimes you there can be too much clutter on the screen, which makes it difficult to place bets fast and correctly.
When betting in-play speed can be vital to your bet being successful, it also helps when it’s clear and easy to make the correct selection, something we feel SportNation excel at.
In terms of free live streaming, we are yet to see any live games being streamed on their site, they have the usual looking map of the pitch. They also have an ordinary list of in-game stats below the map of the pitch, which can be useful if you like to bet on a statistic basis.
The teams are colour coded into either yellow or green with the team name and badge in the corners of the respective stats.
SportNation Betting App Review
SportNation’s betting app and mobile site are identical which is great for everyone. If you do not have access to an app compatible device, simply load their mobile betting site in your device’s browser.
SportNation takes its stunning design and applies it to their mobile betting platforms to great effect. It’s very easy to navigate and understand the mobile layout and has a clear focus on in-play betting on their homepage.
Be sure to sign up for their Whatsapp service for exclusive promotions and offers. Simply message them your username to start receiving the exclusive offers.
There are feature tabs along the top with sports and select events like the World Cup. Also, there is a menu tab at the top left with all sports, promotions, your account, and customer support.
Their customer service is built into the app with live chat and email available from 12 o’clock until 10 pm. It would be great to see a 24/7 customer service but this is the same throughout their service not just the mobile betting platform.
Even though we are on their app, they advertise and link to downloading the app even though it’s already installed. It doesn’t affect functionality but, it is odd that their software doesn’t recognize this.
Overall, we believe the SportNation app is still in early development and has some issues that need working out. It can be slow at times but features everything you need for betting on the go. However, prompting you to install the SportNation app even though you are running the app is an issue.
Customer service is available via live chat on the website or an Email address, there is no telephone number.
If you live chat during the day typical response time is 3 minutes which is pretty good. The email address response time within 48 hours is also a very respectable time frame.
The only downside is the live chat is only available during the day 12 o’clock-10pm 7 days a week but it isn’t much of a downside.
Also, we would like to see some sort of 24hr live chat service but again it’s still a very respectable time frame.
Considering SportNation is less than two years old, it has made a lasting impression. Their generous welcome bonuses, promotions and new reward scheme are sure to impress both new and existing customers.
They boast the ability to attract and keep customers happy throughout their stay. It would be a welcome addition to have live game streaming and a 24/7 chat service, but overall it will certainly not disappoint you.
