Online Betting UKWelcome to OnlineBetting.org.uk, your premier guide to the world of betting and gambling on the internet. Whatever your sport or game we are here to offer expert advice on where to place your bets, with recommendations and guidance based on a combined experience of over 40 years.
On the site we provide up to date and detailed reviews of all major UK bookmakers, as well as a handful of carefully selected online-only sportsbooks and casinos - all of which are licensed and regulated right here in the UK. As well as individual reviews, we have also written a number of guides which recommend bookies based on sport, bet types or offers so that you can find the best betting sites for your needs.
Whilst we prefer to give more detailed advice based on the features you're looking for or sport you want to bet on, we also understand that some people just want a list of betting sites to try out for themselves. For this reason we're kicking things off with a list of our favourite bookmakers. For details of promotions for existing customers see our reviews or visit or betting offers page.

Welcome Offer of the Month
888 Sport: 100% Bonus Up To £100 (£10 Min)
The ultimate purpose of an introductory free bonus, apart from getting something for free, is to give you an opportunity to try out a betting site without risking too much of your own funds. Introductory offers like this one form 888 Sport are truly outstanding value therefore as it has huge flexibility allowing you to claim a matched bonus from just £10 or any amount up to £100. This offer is particularly superb given the low wagering requirements on the bonus, it is also exclusive meaning you can only reach it through the link here.
To claim all you need to do is register as a new customer and deposit £10 or more, by any method other than PayPal, Skrill or Neteller. A 100% matched bonus will then be applied once you have played through your deposit amount once on bets with odds of 1/2+.
Once awarded the bonus has a long expiry time of 60 days, so you do not need to rush to use the bonus, you can wait for wagers that you want to place. To release the bonus funds, and any bonus winnings, as cash you need to rollover the bonus amount six time (6x) in this period again at odds of 1/2+. This is one of the lowest play through requirements for a sportsbook bonus in the UK.
Only sports bets count, cashed outs bets will not contribute to wagering. For more about 888 Sport you can read our full comprehensive review.

About Our Online Betting Guide
At OnlineBetting.org.uk we provide impartial betting advice whether you are a complete novice or you have been doing this for years. All guides and reviews are written by Matt (that’s me) and our in house team, or by carefully selected and vetted expert writers. We update our offers daily and we revise our reviews and guides regularly.
A little introduction to me, Matt. I have been betting for many years in all formats, I love all sports and games and as we all know there is no better way to get into an event than by having a cheeky flutter. Everything written on this site comes from first-hand experience and has been fully tried and tested by either myself or our team or our expert writers. I aim to guide you through all things betting from old school bookmaker’s shops to modern bookies that solely offer online betting tools. We assess the pros and cons of online vs betting shops, conventional desktop sites, mobile betting, payment options, offers/promotions, live betting and betting with streaming and more.
I am a diehard Liverpool FC fan and I truly love my football but I also like watching and going to, Horse racing, Dog racing, Cricket, Tennis, Darts, F1, Rugby, Golf, Snooker, Boxing and even the odd NFL game. If you watch a sport or game in my opinion it is worth placing a bet on it but given the wide range of choice and offers available in the world of online betting it is often hard to know who to bet with. In my own experiences I have made some mistakes but I have found a lot of gems that can make betting on events a lot more fun, and profitable.
Maybe you want to find the best bookmaker for betting on football for example, or you might want to know how to bet with cash online, who offers Cash Out, live streaming, who has the best mobile app or who provides the best live betting – whatever your query or question we have complied a comprehensive resource to online betting to help answer it.
Here we list good, established, UK licensed (by the Gambling Commission), reliable betting sites for punters and by having a good relationship with these companies in many cases we are able to offer you exclusive and one-off deals you cannot find direct with the bookmaker. If you like what we do come back and visit us often and see what's new, share the love too and tell your friends about us.
