The Sport Nation studio offers 'expert' analysis of upcoming games. Players can also utilise the Cash Out option on selected markets.
Sport Nation is a new online sportsbook from Argyll and comes with a UK Gambling Commission licence. In looks and playability it’s a virtual carbon copy of Red Zone Sports, also from Argyll. While that’s great for gamblers on US sports and soccer, does it also mean poor deposit options, limited promotions, and no Live Streams? Let’s take a closer look.
Sport Nation offers new customers the chance to earn 100% up to £50 on their first deposit. The usual match requirements are in place here (bets of 2.00 or worse must be used), and customers have 30 days to clear the bonus. However, watch out for the 7x-deposit amount play-through that is required to earn your free cash.
- Customer support available via live chat noon-10pm.
- Easy to use on desktop and iOS/Android devices.
- Daily deposit limits available from the start.
- Quick withdrawal times with no fees.
- Poor range of banking options.
- No Live Streams available on-site.
- Slow email support for problems.
Markets and Bets
If you’re into US sports, Sport Nation is for you. As well as detailed stats and analysis, you’ll find an unrivalled range of markets on basketball, American Football, and baseball on leagues across the world. Choose from Fractional, Decimal, or American (of course) odds in the lobby too.
Soccer fans have dozens of leagues and cups to choose from, and there are even bets available on ‘Progressive Development’ leagues like English U23. Rugby Union, Boxing, and e-Sports are typical of the lobby.
Analysis is the name of the game. The Sport Nation studio offers ‘expert’ analysis of upcoming games. Players can also utilise the Cash Out option on selected markets and take part in Fantasy Sports games throughout the year.
Promotions and Offers
At time of writing there were no regular promos running on Sport Nation, but there are Cash Out options on selected footie markets and other sporting events.
Deposit Methods / Banking
Banking is definitely where Sport Nation falls down. Customers can only load up using VISA cards or MasterCard but the minimum deposit of £10 (£5 thereafter) is good for recreational gamblers. All transaction fees are free.
Customer service is helpful, if slow, and the Live Chat managed to assist us with most of our questions. There is no phone service, however.
Live Chat: Yes 12 noon-10pm (7 days a week)
Sport Nation is a solid, if unspectacular, addition to the online sportsbook market. It definitely has plenty of markets to choose from, and the lobby set-up and betting slips are on a par with bigger, similar operators like NetBet. The range of banking options is poor, however, as is the spread of promotions. If you’re into your American sports, it’s certainly worth a punt.
