There is actually a method you can use to turn bonuses into withdrawable cash, but we’ll cover that in a bit.

How do I use my Sky Bet offers?

After taking part in a few different free bet promotions, many people come to realise that they’re pretty poor in value. This is due to the strict terms and conditions that are attached. A lot of the time, it’s very hard to come away from a new customer promotion with any profit.

That is why at OddsMonkey, we like to help people maximise their returns with a process called matched betting.

Matched betting is a method used by people up and down the country to earn tax free income each and every month. To help you understand what it is, we’ve produced this video.

Who are Skybet?

Everyone knows who Sky are, their TV platform is a fixture in households up and down the country. They’re also one of the most influential TV platforms for British sport. This is especially true for the Premier League, where Sky’s coverage has helped transform the league into what it is today.

It was off the back of this growth, and the popularity of internet betting, that allowed Sky Bet to venture into the market themselves in 2001.

The innovative Sky Sports TV channel gave them an obvious advantage as they already televised live sport to many of their potential customers. This lead to them growing from strength to strength. Their growth was also helped by the numerous Sky Bet promo codes that were on offer, especially in the early days.

They went on to acquire other influential betting platforms such as Sporting Life, a famous internet sports website. And also Oddschecker, the famous odds comparison tool.

Eventually, Sky Bet were acquired themselves, by CVC Capital Partners for around £800 million. Though Sky UK kept a 20% stake in the company and still license the Sky brand as Sky Bet try to increase their reach even further.
