Top 10 Best Sports Betting Sites in The UK

Expekt Sports Review

Felicity Kay

Originally a Scandinavian book maker, Expekt has been operating online since 1999, making them one of the first sports books to actually go online. They have more than 1.5 million customers from 150+ countries worldwide. They offer punters some of the best odds available and a huge selection of sporting markets and wagering options. Players are also able to take advantage of live, in-game wagering, a live casino, and poker room.

Software/Site & Graphics

The software used to run the online site is proprietary. It should be noted that the company operates under a license in Malta, which is one of the most thoroughly regulated gaming jurisdictions. Also, the software allows for a pleasant user experience with a smooth bet slip technology. Punters may place up to 20 events on a single ticket and it is also very easy to track and watch the lines, which do move in real time.

Bonuses & Promos

At the moment the Expekt site is a little thin in regards to their bonuses and promotions. For example, the basic initial deposit offer is a 50% match bonus up to £50. They do have some promotions from time to time, but to be frank, their offers for the casino or poker rooms are much better.


There are a number of sporting markets available to players. These include soccer (both matches and long-term wagers), tennis, hockey, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, golf, motor sports, and more. There are also a number of wagering options including the traditional sides, over-unders (totals), and half time wagers. You even have the chance to bet the supertoto here.


Support is easy to find at the website. For starters, the site does offer a fairly comprehensive frequently asked questions page. It is not searchable, but the list is very easy to scan and find exactly what you were after. The site does provide a rules section for each of the major sports and walks first timers through placing a bet and performing most basic functions (making a deposit, requesting a payout, etc...). You may also contact the company via an on-site email form or connect via Twitter.

Extra Value

One of the most unique features about the site is the little link that says "odds." This is really cool as it allows punters to track and sort odds by day, time period and even display in various price formats. You can also see the scores of events as they come through. Expekt also offers a statistics page which can be incredibly helpful for all of your sports betting research.

General Information

This site is incredibly easy to use and navigate. Adding a wager to the bet slip is usually a one-click process, although you will need to choose the wager or win amount and confirm. Players may have as many as 20 events on a single betting slip. Also, when you need or want a little break from sports, feel free to take a shot at the traditional or live casino, the poker room, or even the games section.

Deposits & Withdrawal Options

It is also quite easy to make a deposit or take a withdrawal from the site. Some of the banking options offered include:

  • Visa

  • Visa Electron

  • Master Card

  • Maestro

  • NeTeller

  • WebMoney

  • Bank Transfer

  • Western Union

  • Ukash

And many more. Be sure to check back with the site since new methods are being added all the time.

Payout Policy

Taking a payout is also a basic procedure. Bear in mind, however, that you will be required to have wagered a total of 8 times the amount of the bonus received. Then, you simply can choose the amount of money to withdraw and your preferred payment method. In some cases, you might be required to take up to the amount of your original deposit with your initial payment method. Also understand that you might be asked to verify your identity before a payout will be released.

Pros & Cons

Expekt is a solid online book maker with tons of sporting markets and wagering options to choose. They also have a number of nice extras and the site is very easy to use and understand, even for rank beginners. At the moment the site does appear to be very weak on their bonuses and promotional offers, so hopefully new offers will be forthcoming.
