Avoid. SportNation left the UK market in November 2022.

Considering SportNation is less than two years old, it has already made a lasting impression. It has a fresh new design that looks and feels great. There is huge depth to their markets with plenty of sports available to satisfy most punters.

SportNation UK Review (2024)

SportNation is a new betting site that first launched in 2016. It is well known for its huge bonus offer and enticing loyalty schemes rivalling some of the UK's biggest betting websites.

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.

Promotions and Rewards

SportNation has several innovative promotions to reward its existing customers.

Today's best boosts- Every day there will be new best boosts, at the time of reviewing they had boosts on the Roma vs Liverpool Champions League match. (Salah + Firmino to score 9/2)

Free weekly bets- If you stake at least £25 on sports (Monday-Sunday) you will receive a free £5 bet the following Monday.

Exclusive Whatsapp promotions- A Whatsapp number to receive exclusive offers not available on the site, ticket giveaways and the chance to receive free bets.

Sports Nation Rewards- Just like Airmiles or a store reward card you will receive points for every bet, the more selections you make, the more reward points increase. With these reward points, you can redeem real items such as Sonos Play 1 and many more.

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 market. Right off the bat, though, it is worth mentioning that there are much better football bookies out there for punters.

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

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.

SportNation Conclusion

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.

Scam site If you take advantage of the 100% back promotion you have to play 10k Before you can withdraw any winnings and they even have the nerve to limit that to 1k Site is a joke and needs investigation. Do not use.


March 17, 2022

Deposited 20 for 60 worth of free bets asked on live chat and sued said I hadnt qualified for the bonus even though I did it through the link please do not use these scammers they will take your money I wish I read the reviews first honestly and I would of saved my self the hassle with this scam company ( they also have lots of fake good reviews dont fall for it)


March 16, 2022

Opted in and joined bud didnt get joining bonus wouldnt give me a reason I even sent proof of link but they said I couldnt have it credited total waste of time so opened account with sky bet


February 26, 2022

I only joined this place having closed all my other betting accounts and wanting to play a few slots and do some small stake accas. The slots were fairly bad with terrible naviagtion to find the ones I wanted. After winning a small amount twice on two acca bets they limit my lucky 31 to .02 stake which is below their minimum bet.It seems obvious they cant hold a large liability and just bottle it. Glad I dont have to bother verifying documents if they wont pay out.


March 17, 2021

AVOID THESE SCAMMERS AT ALL COSTS. They will happily let you deposit as much as possible until you day you win a tiny amount and then after claiming its for responsible gambling ask for proof of funds. After sending everything they ask showing clearly how you find the account all the verification it makes no difference they just decide they are keeping your money and not paying it. ITS A COMPLETE SCAM. I cant believe they can get away with it and judging by the reviews and comments iv seen they literally will do it to everyone . PLEASE PLEASE BEWARE they are thieves and will take your money PLEASE AVOID THIS SCAM SITE


March 4, 2021

Truly awful customer services - took over a month to close my account and withdraw funds - almost two weeks to reply to an email in some cases. They will take big bets at times but when you attempt to withdraw the walls come up and youre dragged through delays for 30 days I know a colleague that has had a similar experience


January 14, 2021

December 24, 2020

This gaming site should have a minus to addIts terrible.The casino games are rigged they dont pay anything near the % they say and I play the same games on other sites well rigged.And to top it off I only opened account yesterday deposited 3 times 200 kept getting booted out of game it kept restarting.To top it off they logged me out of account and said contact customer services.In which I did they said the system did it and I can log back in.So I went to withdraw my money which was only 100 as I made a 100 and guess what they decide to ask for id proof of address.And other documents.They verified my account once I opened it.Why didnt they ask for proof then.Exactly because there a scamming site.Stay clear there much better other gaming sites.You been warned

What a Joke of a Betting SiteOpened an account - deposited 100 no problem got a bonus top up (great). Placed my bets and logged in and out of account a few times through the day. Football games all finish so try to log on as my bets have won Happy Days. Account has been blocked and need documents from me no worries fire them across and all has gone quite and account is still blocked.I am confused what is fraudulent about placing bets on English Football and using a debt card in your own name If you are worried about fraudulent accounts request all verification documents before you allow customer to deposit surely..... So a week before Christmas I have no winnings or my 100 I deposited - disgusting. Customer Service response was as helpful as a fork in the eye.To top it off I took a selfie with me holding the original documents to be sure I had not robbed some poor person like they technically have.Looks like this whole thing is quite common over the past month or so.Re-open my account and give me my money back.


December 5, 2020

thieves blocked my account with my funds and I verified myself with the documents they wanted but they still kept my account blocked and still have not returned my money STAY CLEAR OF THESE THEIVES or will not get your money back.


November 9, 2020

I deposited 250 because that was the amount you need to deposit to get a welcome bonus then they told me im not eligble for bonuses. Literally no reason for this id not made a single bet. So i tried to withdraw my money and they said I need to turn it over (BET IT) before Im allowed to withdraw it. Literally stealing money.
