The brand new bookmakers keep dropping in and for 2017, we have SportNation joining this busy industry. It’s early days for this new sportsbook but the signs are positive so far both in terms of choice and value.
The choice comes from a good range of markets that should appeal to all types of bettor while value comes from strong prices and a generous welcome bonus to start things off.

New customers to SportNation can sign up and claim a 50% matched credit on their first deposit and this can rise up to an excellent £100.00 at the top end of the scale. There is a bonus code to input (SNW100) when you sign up and having provided some very basic personal information, you must credit between £20.00 and £200.00 to receive your 50% match.
Check all terms and conditions and note specifically that there is a rollover of 7x deposit and bonus combined which must be completed in 30 days at minimum odds of 2.00.
On checking the website there appear to be no regular deals but one off promos were being issued on Premier League matches and on the big US PGA golf tournament. Therefore, we could expect to see a number of these one-offs as regular customers to SportNation.
Sports Markets / Odds
This is one of the bigger lists of sporting events and one that includes all of the popular options, including horse racing. Some useful niches are here too in the following schedule.
Soccer, Horse Racing, Tennis, Golf, Rugby League, Rugby Union, American Football, Baseball, Basketball, Athletics, Aussie Rules Football, Badminton, Beach Volleyball, Boxing, Chess, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motor Racing, Snooker, Pool, Speedway, Surfing, Table Tennis, Trotting, Volleyball, Water Polo and Winter Sports.
Like most new bookies, SportNation have recognised the need to cover a good set of eSports and you can also find novelty bets from entertainment and politics so this is a positive area indeed.
It’s way too early to see SportNation on any of the the odds comparison sites but we’ve checked a few prices ourselves and they are certainly competitive, particularly for our most popular betting options such as football and horse racing.
As of August 2017, the choice of funding options at SportNation was very restricted and it’s one that may need developing in the future. Customers could, at this point, fund or withdraw from their accounts using debit or credit cards or a bank transfer.
While this covers the preferred options for most of us, it would be ideal if some eWallet providers were added to that list.
Things pick up again with the customer service facilities which start with a live chat operator. This is available 24 / 7 and there is a prominent button in order to access this. The list of frequently asked questions is fairly basic but these are laid out in a logical way and will answer most of your elementary questions.
As another alternative, there is a customer service email which promises an average response time of five hours so there is a good range of relatively quick help facilities at SportNation.
As a new bookmaker, SportNation have hit the ground running in most respects and things start off very positively with that welcome offer that can reach up to £100.00 in bonuses. Ongoing promos are here too and the value continues with strong prices in a very extensive set of sporting markets.
All that really needs addressing is that small list of banking options and while that may improve in the future, there’s already enough here to justify signing up with this new sportsbook.
