Sky Launching Online Casino Offering

Online Casino Offer

The most influential media company in the United Kingdom, Sky Broadcasting, looks to be giving their gambling portfolio an upgrade. After the incredible success of Sky Bet, they are launching a Sky Casino site. This website will offer residents of the U.K. the opportunity to play casino games such as blackjack, craps, slots and much more.

In an attempt to get new users to sign up, Sky is offering a significant deposit bonus. Their initial offering will entail a 20 pound welcome bonus, with no strings attached, in addition to a 100% bonus going up to 500 pounds. If a player submits more than 500 pounds when they sign up, they are eligible for a further 50% bonus of 500 on the rest of their deposit. You would have to deposit 1500 pounds to get the full 1020 pound bonus.

The casino will be running the popular Playtech software for their online games. Their offering is set to include blackjack, baccarat, roulette; live hold em, and video poker. They will have more than 50 different slot games. These games will be available from August 2014 on computers, smartphones, and tablets. They can be played on Android, Windows and Apple devices.

Designed for players that live in Britain, it may be possible for non-UK members to sign up if their credit/debit card allows for GBP withdrawals and deposits. The Sky Casino offering is set to work in tandem with their existing gambling products: Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Poker, and Sky Bingo.


It may be difficult for Sky to break into an online casino market that already has a lot of companies. However, the trust between Sky and their customers is very high. Unlike most online casino companies, Sky is a billion pound brand that offers everything from high definition television to sports to internet connections.

Customers know that a casino offered by Sky would be of the highest quality. For this reason, along with the great sign up offers, Sky Casino should be able to make inroads into the online casino market. The introduction of live games will also prove a masterstroke from Sky Casino.
