Take a walk down the main central high street of Stakersland and you will be greeted with a long line of UK and European betting brands that have come to make their mark on the land of stakers. There is something for everyone here from the casual sports betting fan who likes to place an accumulator at the weekend, to the seasoned professional who looks at every fact and piece of data available them to uncover those all-important high-value bets. Stakers from all walks of life can be found here, but they all have one thing in common and that is they all want to discover their next world-class sports betting experience, and we have everything you need to make that discovery a reality.
It is no secret that competition between sports betting sites here at Stakersland is fierce and as brands start joining forces or going their separate ways, we will always remain loyal to our stakers. We want to continue providing you with the latest information on where to bet and where to find the best sports betting markets and bonuses. The Stakers team keep a sharp eye over all the betting sites that come to set up shop here in the park, and so we are in prime position to guide you into choosing and betting the right online bookmaker for you. Read on as we evaluate everything from licenses, promotions, features, and payment services, plus lots more in our endless search for the top betting sites.
Bookmakers stretch out far and wide across Stakersland and while you can find many of the betting shops, lounges, and self-bet terminals down our central high street, many of the bigger betting sites have branched out into huge stately homes within sprawling countryside grounds to hold their million+ staker communities. No matter where they set themselves up though, we will continue to test, analyse, and evaluate each and every one of them. In doing so, we can ensure that we provide you with the latest expert opinions and betting facts about each betting platform and what they hold in store for all you stakers if you decide to sign up.
Our exclusive Stakersland Ranking system allows us to give you a detailed and accurate representation of all the sports betting sites in the park, from the big-hitting giants to the brave new upstarts. Instead of speculating and contemplating on which betting site to choose next, let our quick-and-easy ranking system help you to decide which online bookmaker is right for you. We use our special Stakers formula that takes into account a range of factors from community, social rating, average spend, minimum and maximum withdrawal limits, and the TTM maximum win value, and it is all explained below.
Sit back and watch as two of the best betting sites go head-to-head in our Betting Sites Battle. We look at each of the betting platforms and compare them over six critical feature rounds to see which is the true sports betting king of Stakersland within each country.
The community of an online betting site is not something that you would instantly think of when you search the sports betting high street of Stakersland, let alone consider it to be an important factor when choosing your next betting venue.
However, let us explain just why community is important and why you should make use of our Community Ranking system to guide you to your next sports betting destination at Stakersland. We won’t get too technical with the jargon here, but in principle, we have created a state-of-the-art tracking feature that we can use to tally up how many stakers are coming from each country to each sports betting venue. It is an ongoing process that provides an instant reputation rating on both a local and global scale. You may be wondering why this is useful to you, well, let us explain further with an example.
By using the Country filter, you can pick out your home nation and then instantly see which betting site is the top local choice for you, as well as finding out which betting brands are competing for the top spot in your homeland. What this essentially means is that if a betting site is proving to be popular in your own country then it should be a perfect place for you, too. Straight away you can assume that the betting markets are based on the top local sports and that all the banking options are going to suit you and your banking needs as well. Of course, it doesn’t mean that the bookmaker at number one position is going to be the perfect choice for you, but we are more than certain that you will find a suitable option at least in the top five spots.
The sports betting high street here at Stakersland caters to everyone from small budgets to the big spending of professional punters, but your budget is not what we take into consideration here.
Choosing your next online betting site should not come down to whether you can afford it or not because the best bookmakers will cater to all staker spending habits. Therefore, our Average Spend Ranking gives you that all-important data that indicates the quality of the service being provided at a bookmaker and, in turn, this shows you the overall staker loyalty. After all, stakers will only carry on spending money at a particular site if they are happy with their sports betting service, if the service is below par then they will move on to another site.
The betting sites with the higher monthly average spend amounts are the ones that provide a service that stakers want to use, from the popular sports betting markets through to the ongoing bonus promotions. An ongoing average spend of €70+ shows a high-quality bookmaker that is doing all it can to provide its staker community with a sports betting environment that ticks off all their needs. The top spots in this list are taken up by the betting sites who take staker loyalty seriously, and so you know that you will be looked after from the moment you sign up. Our team prides itself on the high level of commitment to all our sports betting fans out there and this includes maintaining an up-to-date list so you always get the latest average spend rankings.
Everyone here at Stakers HQ is dedicated to providing the most valuable and worthwhile betting information possible, and our Minimum Withdrawal Ranking is perhaps one of the most important lists for the casual staker.
To clarify, this ranking list will show you all the sports betting sites that offer the smallest withdrawal limits, and this is particularly important for the following reason. A sports betting site with a low minimum withdrawal limit is a betting site that clearly cares about its staker members. Every staker will hope to withdraw winnings at some point in time and we should be able to access those winnings regardless of how much it is. At the end of the day, we do not want to end up feeling trapped by unfriendly rules such as high withdrawal limits.
Some stakers only betting small amounts and so even a big win may result in just €20 from a €1 bet, which is a healthy return in relation to the stake amount. If you then want to withdraw that €20 but the betting site enforces a €50 minimum withdrawal limit, there are going to be obvious problems in front of you when attempting to make a withdrawal. Minimum withdrawal limits that hit the €50+ mark are only designed for big spenders, and this list is where you can quickly filter out those particular types of sports betting venues. The Min Withdrawal Ranking is going to be most helpful to our low stakers. It may just end up being the difference between you being able to access your winnings or regrettably having to bet the money away because you don’t have the option to withdraw.
The Max Withdrawal Ranking is an important element to your Stakersland experience and this particular list is used by stakers with all sizes of budgets, and there is a very good reason for this.
We all hope to place successful winning bets and whether they are simple low-return banker bets or huge accumulators with several selections, we will all want to access our winnings and get it safely into our personal bank accounts. Bookmakers can make or break that dream of transferring thousands, or hundreds of thousands if you win big, by declaring a maximum withdrawal limit. Much like the minimum withdrawal limit above, this maximum limit ranking indicates which of the online bookmakers allow you to withdraw the biggest amounts.
The maximum withdrawal limit is likely to be tailored to either a weekly or monthly amount and this comes down to the preference of each bookmaker. The payment method you use will also likely determine how much you can withdraw within each transaction as well, so you can start to see the various elements that need to be considered in this situation. It comes down to the fact that you may need to withdraw your winnings in segments over a period of several weeks or months, and this can be very frustrating. It is why we urge you to use our Max Withdrawal Ranking list to check up and see what the limits are at your next prospective betting site. If you bet with high stakes then this is a crucial piece of data that you must use to your advantage. Check the list, plan ahead, and don’t let your winnings get trapped in your betting account due to unfair maximum withdrawal limits.
The bookmakers that line up here in the central high street of Stakersland generate a lot of revenue and the figures are getting bigger each year, so we decided to produce a list that reveals the official revenue power of each betting site in the park.
It will show you how quickly the betting sites are able to payout the amount connected to their maximum winnings limit, and this is the central concept behind our TTM ranking. The complicated algorithm takes into account various details from the bookmaker’s terms and conditions, as well as one of the figures of either their monthly gross gaming revenue or their total weekly withdrawal limit. What this gives you is a quick snapshot of how comfortable a position each of the sports betting sites are in, in terms of being able to payout the big wins.
Rest assured that we continuously update our lists to bring you up to date betting information. We cannot underline enough how important the TTM Ranking list is right now. You can only imagine how frustrating it would be to win big money on an accumulator and to find out you then have to withdraw a set amount every day, week, or month for an extended period of time. It would certainly take some of the shine off that winning feeling, but you can prevent all of that by planning ahead. In short, the higher the TTM value, the longer you will have to wait to retrieve your full winnings. Revenue power is not something you would normally think of when choosing your next sports betting sites, but now you can appreciate how important it is and also how you can take the guesswork away by using our TTM Ranking list.
The sidewalks of Stakersland is packed full of promotion boards and sports betting displays touting the latest bookmaker bonuses. The sports betting sites will try every trick in the book to tempt you in and convert you from a wandering visitor to a depositing member. The most common way that a bookmaker will do this is to use sports betting bonuses and these can come in all different shapes and sizes. Free bonuses and free bets are some of the best offers out in the park right now and like we said, they will do anything to get you on their side and away from the temptations of their competitors. Betting bonuses are used in a variety of ways and they can come with a range of rules that can be considered staker friendly to those that you should stay well away from. With this in mind, stakers often have many questions about whether they should or shouldn’t claim a betting bonus. Thankfully, the Stakers Bonus team are on hand to guide you in the right direction, so that you can enjoy the best bonuses and ignore the bonus offers that hold no value to you. Below you can find our top five sports betting bonuses that you can claim right now at Stakersland.
Bet365 is the number one sports betting powerhouse here at Stakersland and with over 13 million stakers and €3 billion in gross gaming revenue, this is a bookmaker that knows exactly how to treat their staker community the right way. The use of ongoing bonus incentives is the order of the day at Bet365, but it all starts with their welcome bonus package which offers up to £100 in free bets for UK stakers, or €25 in free bets for Euro stakers. The best part is that you have up to 30 days to claim and opt-in to the offer which means that you are in complete control and in no rush to bet. Once you become a full member then the offers just keep on rolling in. You can find accumulator bonuses, bore draw money back offers, and the useful two goals ahead early payout deals get snapped up by eager stakers who love to get extra value from their betting. Soccer is the priority here but sports like tennis and basketball also benefit from bonuses, as well as the profit boosts on the American sports betting markets.
The Will Hill bookmaker brand continues to attract millions of stakers who appreciate a betting site that gives them top deals on the top sports. The UK-based bookmaker has a strong affinity with horse racing and football and this is where the majority of their bonuses are based around. If that is your betting style then you will find some great offers every day here. Firstly though, we should mention the welcome bonus because new players get two £15 free bets from a £10 deposit (bonus code required). It is a useful entry gift as you make your way through the big gates and into the huge betting grounds of the Will Hill Castle. From there on in you get access to industry standard promotions which will not blow you away with freebies, but it will certainly keep you coming back for more. Offers like the Scratch of the Day, the moneyback deal if your horse finishes 2nd, and various bet boosts and in-play insurance offers make the up the best of the rest bonus promotions.
The fun and games never stop at Paddy Powers HQ as the bonuses keep on getting rolled out for their £1 million staker community. The charm of this Irish and UK bookmaker never fails as stakers are guaranteed a laugh and a smile as they browse through their ongoing bonus deals. A risk-free bet awaits newcomers and then the bonuses and promotions keep on coming and thankfully, the terms and conditions are all straightforward. A rewards club provides you with ‘power ups’ and the sports quiz hands out cash prizes and more power ups to the wiser staker members. You can usually find around 15-20 promotions readily available at any one moment at Paddy Power, and so you should always be able to find something that will boost your bets in one way or another. Seasonal offers and bonuses around big sporting events can always be expected, as well as the usual best odds, extra places, refer a friend, and acca insurance deals.
10bet is home to a small crowd of stakers but they are treated to a useful mix of bonuses and sports betting promotions that keeps them all engaged and entertained. You can claim up to £50 with their welcome bonus and this also comes with a staker-friendly 5x wagering requirement. You will find that the 10bet bonus team likes to think outside of the box when it comes to their bonuses and this is proven by the unique table tennis free bet reward being offered. Other notable bonuses include the insurance bets on various football and horse racing markets, as well as the acca boost deals across 3-fold to 16-fold bets. Furthermore, all the terms and conditions are clearly displayed and kept simple to ensure that everyone can understand them with ease. 10bet is not a brand with huge amounts of power in Stakersland, but they still manage to put many other sports betting sites to shame with their well-kept and organized list of staker-friendly promotions.
Skybet continue to impress with their digital broadcast service across Stakersland and with two million stakers already betting with them, it goes to show that a physical address is not a modern-day requirement to be a success in the land of stakers. The bonus and promotions page of Skybet is one of their core features and this is primarily because they have managed to provide stakers with a superb daily mix of offers. There is no mistaking the priority put on the UK football betting markets and along with the price boosts and their famous free bet club, the Skybet bonus team have created a service that many other bookmakers look to for inspiration. A simple yet rewarding welcome bonus sets you up with £20 in free bets after your initial £5 stake, and then you get full member access to profit boosts, cash prize tournaments, tennis bet returns, and horse racing insurance bets to name just a few of the bonus offers.
Everyone at Stakers HQ follows strict checklists and procedures when reviewing and recommending sports betting sites located here in Stakersland, but first and foremost and before any in-depth review or site assessment takes place, we check for the overall gambling license. Stakersland is covered by licensing and regulations across various gambling jurisdictions and every betting site and casino must be successful in their license application in order to operate professionally, and more importantly, to ensure that everything is above board and legal. In summary, these gambling licenses ensure that the sports betting site can be trusted and that the services they provide are considered to be fair. Understanding which of the licenses relate to where you live and knowing what to look out for is essential as you walk the betting grounds of Stakersland.
Below we have listed the top gambling licenses currently available to both sports betting sites and online casinos here at Stakersland, and so we recommend that you learn these names off by heart. But if there is one thing to remember in relation to these licenses then it is to always ensure at least one of these names can be found connected to the betting site that you wish to sign up to. If there is no license then you should walk away and find somewhere else, no further questions asked.
The online gambling era paved the way for many of these licenses to be introduced to Stakersland. We should all be thankful of this because they have and they continue to keep the rogue online gambling businesses at bay. The Gibraltar license was created in 1998 which was followed by the Alderney license in 2000. The Malta license came in 2001 and then the stringent laws of the UK license were signed and sealed in 2005. We consider these four to be the top licenses in terms of reliability and trust, but this doesn’t always mean betting site operators will choose them. Sometimes they look further afield to the lands of Curaçao which established its gambling license in 1993 and their close neighbours Antigua and Barbados who joined in with their own license in 1994.
Keeping on top of the licensing and regulations is no easy job as the legal guidelines are always being amended or updated in relation to each country. Many areas of the world are already relatively relaxed when it comes to gambling laws, but we are now also seeing countries within Asia and Africa who are starting to open up and loosen their gambling laws as well. This will no doubt require more gambling licenses to become available because we have seen that trying to keep multiple countries safe and secure under one license gets trickier as each year passes by. No matter what happens though, we will be keeping a close eye on all the licensing developments across Stakersland. Maintaining staker safety is essential and the fact that some of these licenses are easier to acquire than others means that there is a tiering system to them. The top four licenses of Gibraltar, Alderney, Malta, and the UK are all highly respected and as it stands, we recommend them above all others at this moment in time.
Stakersland is the home of online gambling entertainment and there is an exciting experience around every corner from bookmakers to online casino games and live dealers. Everything is right there in front of you, but there is one vital ingredient that is required to enjoy all of this entertainment, and that is being able to easily fund your online account with funds. You have many payment options to choose from at the moment and so it is no wonder that many stakers have multiple questions and doubts when it comes to online banking at sports betting sites. There are many factors to consider including your country of residence, your budget, your stance on online privacy, and the speed at which you want to access your money.
We have many years of sports betting experience and top betting professionals who analyse the grounds and venues of Stakersland, and we all know that the easy banking option is not always the best option. After all, this is your hard-earned money and so you need to take this part of the betting journey seriously. You can save hundreds and possibly thousands over the course of several years. But only if you take a little extra time to review your banking options and choose the one that works best for you. Banking may not bring the same excitement that betting brings, but you do want to look after your money and winnings, especially if you have spent all that time working out the best sports betting strategy and analysing mountains of data to pick out your winning bets.
Any betting site who takes care of its staker members will be giving them as much freedom as possible when it comes to banking. Multiple payment options for both deposit and withdrawal transactions is a must and although the popular options like Mastercard, Visa, and Neteller are usually included, it does not mean that every staker is going to benefit from using them over alternative options. This is why a variety of methods that cover bank cards, e-wallets, online transfers, and prepaid cards should all be listed to keep options open. Below you will find some extra details for those of you from the UK, Ireland, and Germany. Here we explain some of the popular payment methods available to stakers as well as some of the reasons behind why they have become useful in each country.
|Country||Bank payments||E-wallets||Credit cards|
|Country||Bank payments||E-wallets||Credit cards|
Visa and Mastercard have always been at the forefront of the banking process for UK stakers, but there has never been any reason to change this due to them both being hugely respected as a global payment provider for many years. The fact that people use these methods during their everyday lives also means that there is a big sense of trust involved when using bank cards. All the recommended UK betting sites here at Stakersland will have the Visa and Mastercard options, but the rise in online banking has seen a strong surge in e-wallets and options like PayPal and Neteller are by far the closest payment options in terms of popularity right now. Mobile payment providers are also starting to take hold in the UK market and so while this means more competition for the long-serving Visa and Mastercard, it does mean that UK stakers get a broader range of options with which to move their money around.
Irish stakers can expect a similar banking landscape to the UK with Mastercard and Visa payment options available right across the country. No fees and charges is also a welcome benefit and so these two are clearly the common choice for the majority of the stakers here. You should not be surprised to see the Maestro and American Express logos at many of the Irish betting sites here in Stakersland either, along with a handful of the top e-wallets that have now become a reliable part of the betting process for many stakers. Neteller is the go-to e-wallet in Ireland and the popular PayPal is not too far behind. The Skrill payment option is one that has gained some traction in recent years as well, but the frustrating withdrawal fees are something that stakers will preferably avoid through using the likes of its PayPal rival.
Germany is one of the top betting regions in Europe and so bookmakers try to give German stakers as much variety as possible when making their online banking transactions. Stakersland welcomes a huge number of stakers from this country and so we know first-hand which of the payment providers are being used. These are mainly the global Visa and Mastercard bank cards, the PayPal, Neteller, and Skrill e-wallets, and more modern options such as ApplePay. The banking options do not stop there though as payment providers such as Trustly and MuchBetter are also picking up a lot of traction across the country, too. Germany is a huge sports betting country and while its laws are continually being updated, the bookmakers who accept German stakers are always doing all they can to provide a convenient banking process for their valued members.
The sports betting markets across Stakersland are full of variety and you can now choose from a wide range of sports from football and racing to skiing and handball. As with most things in life, sometimes too many options can overwhelm you. Try to focus on the sports you know first as this will make things a lot easier.

If you can shop online for clothes or food then you are more than capable of joining an online betting site. It takes just a couple of minutes, but which bookmaker do you choose? Again, don’t leave this all-important choice down to guesswork.

If you are a football fan then a full list of sports betting markets across the top leagues and competitions is an absolute must at your next bookmaker. The majority of football bets from seasoned professionals to casual weekend punters are placed on the top leagues from the Premiership in the UK, the Bundesliga in Germany, La Liga in Spain, and Serie A in Italy. Each of these leagues should have a huge range of sports betting options available from the popular 1x2 and over/under goals markets to the niche markets of how the next goal will be scored of if two players will get 2+ shots on target.
Your options are endless at the right betting site because many of the betting teams now take your personal bet suggestions and send back unique odds. You should also take note that you will likely find improved sports betting margins across the popular football leagues and this is due to the increase in overall interest and bets being placed on them. Keep an eye for the big events and competitions like the Champions League because this is when bookmakers will look to attract the masses of casual punters. Numerous bets with exceptional value have been found in the past and these offers will continue to become available as the football markets prove too profitable for the bookmakers to ignore.
The UEFA Champions League is an annual European club competition that started out in 1955. It is the highest level of the domestic game that every professional wants to play at, and for many this only comes second to playing in the World Cup for your home country. The competition welcomes the very best teams from across Europe and places them into group stages, followed by a knockout stage that sees the top teams and players come head to head as they look to reach the final. A handful of clubs have enjoyed multiple wins over the years such as the record holders Real Madrid and then the likes of AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, and Barcelona are all winners of the trophy on multiple occasions.
Sports betting around the UEFA Champions League is massive and the level of importance around the competition for both bookmakers and stakers cannot be understated. Hundreds of millions of viewers watch on TV and the drama of the games help to bring new stakes to the online betting world every year. The sports betting sites across Stakersland know the value of this and they always aim to promote tempting bonus offers and betting options to attract the crowds of casual punters. It essentially means that there are always great sports betting offers to be claimed when these games are played during the week. You will find the special deals displayed all over the promotion boards of the betting sites as they prioritise the Champions League betting markets over any other sporting event that is taking place.
The UEFA Europa League is considered as the next tier down from the Champions League and although not as prominent in terms of coverage and importance, it still brings tempting betting opportunities to the sports betting crowds. It first appeared back in 1971 and it has continued to provide the smaller clubs with a chance to perform on the European stage. The range of quality in the teams who qualify for this this competition is a lot broader. It means that you get smaller teams from the lesser known European leagues coming up against the elite teams who missed the cut in the Champions league. Those teams who drop down from the Champions League often tend to do quite well and the likes of Sevilla, Inter Milan, Juventus, Liverpool, and Atletico Madrid are all UEFA Europa League winners.
The betting options start right from the early qualifiers and bookmakers always look to attract the fans of teams who are playing as well as those stakers who are looking for a midweek bet. TV coverage of the top teams helps to bring a wider audience to the sports betting markets and so yet again, the midweek fixtures of the UEFA Europa League provides a perfect time for our stakers to find some top sports betting value. All the standard betting markets are open and due to the increased volume in sports betting, there will be some decent margins to be found. Remember, this competition has the potential to provide some big upsets and this means that big value bets are on the table for those who are willing to back the smaller clubs to go on a cup run.
The Premiership is the top tier football league in England and this is commonly known as the best football league in the world. Many of the top players and managers have enjoyed successful careers in the league and it still attracts star-quality players who feel as though they must experience English football before they retire. The Premiership has been running since 1992, but the top tier of English football goes right back to 1888 when the English First Division was born. The Premiership took over the title of the top English league and since then there have been only a few teams to have gone on to win the title since that first ’92 season. Manchester United rule the league thanks to their dominance of the early years, and Chelsea and Manchester City both have a handful of titles as well.
Fans from all over the world follow the English Premiership and this is encouraged by the multi-national mix of players that get signed to the English clubs. The list of world-class players is too long to list here but the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Wayne Rooney have all played in the past, and players like Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero are the latest heroes of the league. The Premiership is the number one choice for most betting sites and so you can expect to find hundreds of betting markets connected to this league. Sports betting on the simple markets of 1x2 and both teams to score is quick and simple, and then drilling down into the niche options for those football fans who hold a deeper knowledge of the game and teams is also easily accessible.
