Sky Bet BlackBerry App – Free £20 + follow-on bets
Time to turn now to what our team think of the Sky Bet BlackBerry app , and what an impressive little betting app it is for the modern smart phone. Strong on sports betting as would be expected, the Sky Bet BlackBerry app entices prospective users with a £20 free bet once your first bet of £5 has been placed on a sports market, but that isn’t where the free betting ends.
Enter the Free Bet Club where you can earn a further £5 a week in free bets to boot. The casino & games are easy to play on the Sky Bet BlackBerry app with the signup bonus being for new customers. So, without further ado let’s get right to how to get the free bets…

Our Review of the Sky Bet BlackBerry App
So what to expect once inside the Sky Bet BlackBerry app? Well we’ve had a rummage around and can tell you that it’s certainly a pleasant user experience. The developers have clearly done a good job of it.
We were eager to learn how to use the £30 free bet and find out more about the Free Bet Club thingy. More about the latter feature later in this review. As a new customer using the Sky Bet BlackBerry app, you’ll be entitled to (assuming the promotion does not change) to a free bet up to a value of £30. This is a simple matched bet – nice.
In the design of the Sky Bet BlackBerry app when reviewed, you need to click on the Sky Bet logo in the top middle of the screen in order to expand some of the main quick link shortcuts. Other links show an A-Z of sport betting available with an impressive football and horse racing offering that includes horse racing streaming video of live races. And if you miss the beginning of an event there is always in-play live betting there.
Design-wise, the Sky Bet BlackBerry app probably has the best look and feel over any other comparable app on the market. It’s fast to use (we hate delays) and like all good apps, it ‘just works’. Hats of to British Sky Broadcasting for the impressive user experience that they have created.
Take a look around the football betting options, there is just about everything that you could possibly think of. We love accumulators and you can build these easily on the Sky Bet BlackBerry app.
Price Boost is Sky Bet’s enhanced odds which makes some of the odds better than you’ll find anywhere else. For selected events.
Free Bet Club available on the Sky Bet BlackBerry App
After you have used up your initial free bet, the good news for punters is that is does not stop there with Sky Bet. That’s where the ‘Free Bet Club’ comes into play for users of the Sky Bet BlackBerry app.
Under the Free Bet Club conditions, for you to qualify each week it’s necessary to place a £5 accumulator which must have combined odds of 5/1 or more prior to midnight on Sunday. Your free bet will then be credited by 19:00 on the Monday to use on any sport. Should you skip a week you are kicked out of the Free Bet Club, but you can get back in by placing a £25 accumulator. Check out the app for more terms & conditions.
