SkyBet In Play service

If any new sports betting site is going to thrive in the UK market, then it will have to have a solid selection of football betting markets available at excellent odds. So with that in mind, how will Pokerstars Sport, predominantly an American site with Canadian owners, fare when it comes to offering football betting to a UK audience?

Let’s take a look at the key football betting markets available on Pokerstars, alongside how the site organises football betting to ensure it is quick and easy for punters to find their choice of bet.


You can select the main football tab from the top and then you can find markets by selecting from the Daily Match Lists menu down the left hand side, or you can order the list by date or time or the type of competition.

You can also click on the tabs at the top of the screen to bring up additional menus listing competitions, in play betting, the main betting highlights for football that day and the outright bets available for the games being played on that day.

Navigating the site is easy as there are several ways to find the market you want relatively quickly and the In Play section is particularly good, especially when there are some high profile games being played.

So the good news for organisation is that Pokerstars Sports scores highly for football fans as even with a large number of games on a particular day, by using the filters provided it is quick and easy to find your choice of market.

If you haven’t yet joined, you can do so today quickly and easily, and with the added benefit of a PokerStars UK sports bonus offer.


The betting markets available on football on Pokerstars Sports mirrors what you will find on other sites. For lesser games, there tends to be just the main types of football markets available, such as:

  • Match Result
  • Over/Under Total Goals
  • First Half Result
  • Draw No Bet
  • Over/Under First Half

However, the more important a match is, then the higher the number of markets that are likely to be available for that game. In addition to the main betting markets outlined above there will be a large number of other betting markets available.

Typically these will include:

  • Both Teams to Score
  • Match Result and Both Teams to Score
  • First Team to Score
  • Correct Score
  • Half Time/Full Time
  • Double Chance
  • First Goalscorer
  • Anytime Goalscorer
  • Last Goalscorer
  • To Score 2 Goals or More
  • To Score a Hattrick
  • Total Goals
  • Total Goals Odd/Even

However, for games that involve the top teams, such as those in the Premier League, the Champions League, or any of the top leagues around Europe (such as Italy, Spain, France and Germany), FIFA World Cup or European Championship games then there may well be considerably more markets available for these games antepost, as well as extensive in play betting markets available for each of the games being played.


We reviewed the level of odds offered by Pokerstars Sports in a recent article and found that the odds offered were generally on a par with average, although occasionally (like all bookmakers I hasten to add) Pokerstars Sport may offer the industry best market price, but sometimes too they may offer prices that are not great value.

However, what is indubitable is that you won’t be severely out of pocket if you elect to bet with Pokerstars Sports compared to other UK-based bookmakers.


If you enjoy betting on football then you will not go far wrong by opting to bet with Pokerstars Sports. They offer a wide range of markets, solid odds across those markets and a wide selection of games to pick from every day.

On top of that, the In Play betting service is generally excellent and offers fans of that form of betting plenty of great bets each day.
