4/5

Sport Nation began life as Bet on Brazil, named after the prominent radio presenter and ex-footballer Alan Brazil. That concept did not work so the operator was rebranded and became Sport Nation in 2017. The operator now has an online and mobile presence in the UK market. 

There is currently no Sport Nation mobile app for Android devices but iOS users have access to a fully functional app. There is also a mobile site version which replicates the features of the desktop site. This mobile release for the Sport Nation website is designed to be compatible with many of the most popular devices. Android users who still want to stick with the app rather than using a mobile website, can check out our rating of betting apps on Android.

New Customer Bonus

Customers with Sport Nation are entitled to a welcome bonus of up to £50. This offer is subject to the following Terms & Conditions:

 

New customers only. Valid once per customer. Bonus expires after 30 days. Expires 31.05.19. 7x turnover at 1.6 minimum odds. 18+ only. BeGambleAware.

  • New customers in the UK aged 18 or over.
  • Open an account with Sport Nation and enter the promo code.
  • The first deposit must be between £10 and £50.
  • Once the deposit has been confirmed new customers a 100% matched deposit bonus.
  • The maximum bonus is £50.

  • Qualifying bets must be placed at odds of 1.6 or bigger.
  • Bets must have a stake or no more than £50.
  • The rollover requirements must be met in 30 days.
  • Sport Nation general Terms & Conditions apply.

The Sport Nation new customer offer is transparent but the turnover requirements are restrictive. In order to receive the maximum bonus of £50 and withdraw any winnings customers must stake £700 in one month. The odds requirements are fair but overall the offer is difficult to achieve even though the rules are clear.

Sport Nation Android App

At the time of writing there was no Sport Nation app for Android devices. Android users gain access to the Sport Nation service through the mobile site version so there are no compatibility issues. The mobile site can be accessed using a smartphone and a browser enabled for the appropriate version of the site.

Sport Nation App for iPhone & iPad

The mobile app is available for iOS devices which use version 9.0 and above. Most modern iOS devices are compatible but specifically the following are suitable for the app: Samsung, Sony, HTC and Huawei. The app is available if these steps are followed:

 

  1. Register a new account at Sport Nation.
  2. Search “Sport Nation” in the App Store.
  3. Select “Install”.
  4. Open the app and begin betting with Sport Nation.

All the functions and features of the desktop version are available on the iPhone and iPad. That includes the full range of pre-match and in-play betting markets.

Adding Sport Nation Mobile Site Shortcut to your Home Screen

Customers can enjoy the Sport Nation app experience by adding the mobile site to the regular site. By visiting the Sport Nation Home Page on a mobile device users are taken to the mobile optimised version of the site. The next stage of the process is to Add Shortcut On Home Page. The Sport Nation icon and link will then appear on the home screen of the mobile device.

New customers only. Valid once per customer. Bonus expires after 30 days. Expires 31.05.19. 7x turnover at 1.6 minimum odds. 18+ only. BeGambleAware.

Sport Nation App Features

The Sport Nation betting app offers customers all the features of the website including the following:

CASH OUT

Mobile customers can cash out a live bet to guarantee a profit or limit a loss. The value of the cash out depends on the original odds, stake and current odds. When the market goes in favour of the bet cashing out ensures a profit regardless of the outcome. When the odds go against the bet the loss is known and limited. Timing is the key to cashing out a bet but the odds are in favour of Sport Nation.

IN-PLAY BETTING

In-play betting has seen massive growth on mobile devices in recent years. There are now more bets placed on mobiles than computers and in-play soccer betting accounts for most bets. Customers with Sport Nation have access to in-play bets in football, tennis, baseball, basketball and several other minor betting sports when the event justifies live betting. Although live streaming is not available customers have access to a visualization of the event.

MOST POPULAR EVENTS

Sport Nation offers a wide range of sports but the most popular appear in a separate menu to the full list of sports. The most popular list displays the event specific offers and the relevant leagues. Most of the events on this list are related to football but other prominent sports include horse racing, cricket and tennis. The list provides quick links to the events that are attracting the most bets.

Deposit Options

Banking transactions are carried out through the Cashier. Deposits can be made using credit and debit cards and Bank Transfer. Withdrawals are possible using the same methods. Deposits are immediate and withdrawals are subject to a delay of 3 to 5 days. The Sport Nation site accepts payments made in GB pounds but no other currencies are permitted.

MARKETS

The full list features over 40 sports which are organised by popularity and then in alphabetical order. The offer includes all the popular betting sports in the UK and some of the more obscure designed for the European market.

GENERAL

In addition to more than 40 sports mobile customers with Sport Nation can bet on virtual sports, politics, e-Sports and Specials. Some of the less common sports include netball, Gaelic hurling and surfing. In list order the three most popular betting sports with mobile customers in the UK are football, horse racing and greyhound racing and here is more information about each of these sports:

FOOTBALL

Football or soccer accounts for the vast majority of sports bets with Sport Nation. Betting options appear under the headings of Live, Daily Match list, Top Leagues and Leagues List. The top leagues include all the main domestic leagues in Europe. The complete list features about 200 leagues and competitions in alphabetical order. The English Premier League and UEFA Champions League attract the most betting interest. A major fixture offers over 150 markets which appear under the headings of All Markets, Main, Goals, Halves, Corners, Specials, Cards, Period and Players. The three-way match result margin is priced with a margin of about 4.5% which is average for the industry. Outright betting is also available on many leagues and international tournaments such as the World Cup and European Championship finals.

HORSE RACING

UK customers expect a good horse racing service because it is still the traditional betting sport in betting offices and horse racing betting apps. Sport Nation provides odds for meetings in the UK and Ireland and international fixtures in South Africa, France, Dubai and the United States. The site also features Ante-post betting for major upcoming races and future races at the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot. Customers can also place bets on the next Grand National and the Classics on the Flat. Sport Nation offers Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG on a selection of meetings but not across the board.

GREYHOUND RACING

Greyhound racing is still an important sport in UK betting offices so Sport Nation offers a full range of odds. Betting is available on Bookmaker Afternoon Greyhound Service (BAGS) meetings and graded and open races at fixtures in the evening and non-Bags meetings in the day. Ante-post betting is available on the Greyhound Derby and other major open competitions. BOG is not offered on greyhound racing.

 

About Sport Nation

Sport Nation developed from the Bet on Brazil brand that did not have the expected success. The name had a limited shelf life and Sport Nation is more enduring and will pass the test of time. The site still focuses on soccer betting and customers in the UK but there are more sports that are designed for customers in other parts of Europe. There are some missing features but generally Sport Nation offers a decent sportsbook that includes all the main betting sports.

Bottom Line

Mobile customers with Sport Nation have access to all the functionality of the desktop site. That includes a welcome offer that is transparent and a range of dynamic offers for existing customers. The lack of live streaming and an Android app should be rectified in the fullness of time but in the meantime Sport Nation offers a decent sports betting service.
