When one thinks of Sky Bet they usually think of just one thing sports betting. And that’s no surprise really, Sky Bet is one of, if not the premier site(s) for sports betting in the world. They have all of the resources and data collection of the massive Sky Sports behind them so they can offer you the very best and the most accurate info in sports betting action. Sports betting is also the biggest draw and therefore the biggest part of the Sky Bet platform. People just love the thrill of it, having a bet on your favourite team to win a big game adds so many layers of excitement and thrill on top of an already thrilling event.
For that reason, it may be a little bit of a surprise to someone who doesn’t already know that they also offer a great range of odds on the biggest events in the world of television and film. Nowhere else will you get such amazing odds for your favourite television shows and films be they reality tv shows such as ‘Big Brother’ or ‘I’m A Celebrity’ or a scripted show such as ‘Game Of Thrones’ or ‘The Walking Dead’. Regardless of what flavour of tv you prefer it is likely that Sky Bet will have a market there for you to bet on and will provide you with the very best odds you could possibly get on that market.
How It Works
Betting on TV shows and film works in exactly the same way as betting on sports does. You find the certain event and put down a wager on the outcome you expect at the odds that you are given at the time. If the outcome comes out the way that you predicted it to and you have placed your bet on that then you will win your stake back plus your winnings and you will go away a very happy customer, simple.
At the moment, Sky Bet has a total of five different events in the world of television and film that you can place a bet on. These are some of the biggest and most anticipated moments in the entertainment biz so it is no surprise that they have them here. Here’s a look at possibly the two biggest ones.
The first of these is a betting market for punters hoping to guess who the winner of this years ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ competition will be. For an idea of what you could bet on here are the top four front-runners in the eyes of Sky Bet although there is really no way of knowing until they don the sequins:
- Aston Merrygold 11/4
- Mollie King 5/1
- Alexandra Burke 5/1
- Gemma Atkinson 7/1
The second event is all about the biggest show on television right now, Game Of Thrones. The question that Sky Bet is posing to you is, ‘Who will win the titular Game Of Thrones and end up on the Iron Throne’. As expected the biggest players are there first, Jon Snow (7/4) Daenerys Targaryen (5/1) Cersei Lannister (7/1) but Sky Bet also lets you have a go with some more.. let’s say outside bets such as pie making extraordinaire Hot Pie (500/1), the King’s landing cat ‘Ser Pounce’ (500/1) and at a whopping 1000/1 is the unnamed Lannister soldier played by Ed Sheeran!
