Below are some YouTube clips that outline some of the key changes followed by our comments regarding the new interface.

Sports Betting Interface

The Sportingbet interface has been given a number of facelifts since we first reviewed it, with the most recent overhaul made in March 2014. The changes have resulted in a cleaner, simpler interface with the popular odds displayed more concisely than in previous versions.

Sportingbet has followed the lead of Luxbet and its parent William Hill by using a horizontal rather than a vertical menu to display the list of sports. Clicking on the ‘All Sports’ link displays the full list. The sports are listed using a combination of by popularity and alphabetically, which is confusing at first, although we like the fact that the alphabetised sports are listed from left to right rather than top down with Luxbet.

In place of the usual list of sports on the left are a few small quick links, which has freed up space for a wider central column. When you click on a sport the sub-categories are displayed below the sports navigation panel, followed by a concisely displayed list of odds. Clicking on the title of a fixture displays all available odds for that fixture alongside a list of other fixtures for that round.

Unlike previous versions, the betting slip is not automatically displayed when you select a bet. Instead, when you make a betting selection a yellow number appears over the Bet slip link to indicate how many items are in your slip. When you click on the Bet slip link the betting slip is displayed on top of the odds rather than beside them. You have to close the betting slip again to make more selections, however this arrangement does provide additional space for the display of market and odds.

The betting slip itself is highly functional, providing you with the ability to place single and multi wagers together. A toggle icon on the left of each single selection enables you to select which items to include in the multi and a full range of exotic multi options such as Trixie, Patent and Yankee are made available. The total stake and estimated returns are automatically displayed as you input stake amounts.

Overall we really like the interface for its concise display of odds, intuitive navigation and betting slip functionality.

Race Betting Interface

Sportingbet offers a strong racing line-up that covers horse, harness and greyhounds events across Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK and Ireland. Selected races from Hong Kong and France are also covered. Win/Place, Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta, First 4, Multi and “Super Exotic” markets are offered. Best Tote+5% (Tatts, NSW, Vic), fixed odds and best fluc odds are available on most horse races, tote and fixed odds are available on harness events and the totes are available on greyhounds.

The race betting interface is excellent. The initial racing card is stock standard, however when you select a race a concise list of all upcoming races is listed to the left of the odds. This enables you to toggle the display of more than one race at a time. The markets for your selected races are stacked on top of each other as new races are selected. This enables fast and convenient navigation around the racing markets.

Odds fluctuations are displayed for each runner and the track conditions are displayed for each race. A new innovative feature of the racing service is a “Sullo says” box, which provides trader comments on most horse races.
