Skybet is an example of BSkyB reaching out and growing in another industry. It is something that Sky do very well because Skybet already has a core group of loyal followers who bet exclusively with the company.
The welcome offer available from Skybet is competitive and easy to get for new customers.
The amount of cash available is on the low side but is realistic and not similar to the free bets which promise new customers hundreds of pounds in free bets without mentioning complicated terms and conditions, and above the £20 free bet offe with only £5 deposit required, which is one of the more popular bookmaker free bets around.
Those who do not wish to take up the option of a free bet can also get discounts and money off their next Sky television bill instead, which really provides their customers with something different, which other bookmakers obviously do not offer.
