Pinnacle and SBOBET: Within Your Reach with VOdds


Pinnacle and SBOBET are some of the biggest sportsbooks in the betting industry, offering high limits and stunning odds that used to be available to anyone in the UK. Unfortunately, because of some setbacks, they had to pull out.

Pinnacle and SBOBET Withdrawing from UK

In May 2018, Pinnacle broke the news in its Twitter account that they ‘had withdrawn their licence application to the UK Gambling Commission’. While they haven’t been in the UK market since 2014, punters were still disheartened as they hoped to finally get access to Pinnacle’s high limits again.

Meanwhile, in September 2014, SBOBET — one of the biggest bookmakers in Asia known to have high limits — also announced that they shall be closing UK accounts. Since then, there doesn’t seem to be any chance that they will ever be back.

Speculations stirred as some punters believed that it could be because of the enactment of the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act 2014, where certain restrictions caused the bookies to shy away from the UK. Others believed it could be because of the Point of Consumption Tax, where 15% shall be taxed from all wagers of UK punters.

Why Did Bettors Like To Bet Through Them?

Regardless of the reason why some Asian bookies pulled out of the UK betting market, punters liked placing wagers through them mainly because:

  • They can cover even small leagues
  • They have higher limits
  • They offer numerous spreads
  • Moreover, all of these reasons lead to one sole goal of professional bettors: to reel-in more profit.

Without access to these bookies, punters are forced to settle with European books and others accepted by the UKGC. Luckily, there’s another way for you to place bets on these bookies.

The Good News Brought by VOdds

You can now bet with Pinnacle from within the UK.

VOdds is a sportsbooks aggregator licensed by Curaçao e-Gaming. It’s a betting platform that allows you to compare odds from their partnered bookies so that you can easily choose the best odd without having to create accounts for each book.

The good news? Both Pinnacle and SBOBET are partners of the platform. All you need to do is create an account with VOdds, make a deposit and you’re all set.

Other Features

Aside from giving you access to a myriad of sportsbooks in one account, VOdds also offers more features for more convenient betting.

Fast Withdrawals/Deposits

One of their most recent updates includes a feature where you can process your withdrawals and deposits through the platform. Therefore, you will only have to manage one bankroll should you use their service.

Positional Orders

This feature allows you to place bets on both teams in one transaction in such a way that you get a profit regardless of which team wins. Positional order betting is best for professional sports bettors or high rollers.

‘Stop Loss and Limit Win’ Function

It’s literally how it seems. VOdds allows you to input a specific amount that you can risk losing and a price where you’ll be satisfied with winning. Their Stop Loss and Limit Win Function can be used for positional and future orders.

If you like to give it a try, VOdds is readily accessible to you anytime as soon as you register to their platform. Plus, be on the lookout because they give bonuses to new users, so don’t miss it.

Final Thoughts

Although unlikely, even if Pinnacle or SBOBET decides to finally come back to the UK betting market, having an aggregator like VOdds is still worth a shot. How can you say no to reliable odds, higher limits and overall betting convenience, right? Hence, if you consider yourself to be a dedicated sports bettor, go ahead and give it a shot!

    Decided to use vodds account for accessing pinnacle and betfair odds because of their bonuses offered. realistic!! 5x turnover req. is pretty easy to get a £100 bonus. Other sites offer sign up bonuses up to 1000 but I hate how they fool customers on required turnover.

  15. cool betting site, i like the sign up bonus most, lower wagering requirements and not too much complicated conditions. Deposit process is okay also. Sometimes i experience technical issues but are easily solve by messaging their support

    This is one of the most impressive aggregators I tried in my betting experience. They have great odds for football and also recently they start offering online casino. Just hoping they could add more sports in their platform though.

  22. peter-olken on

    Everything I experience at VOdds was positive, and I had no trouble opening a couple sportbook accounts with them. I can ask any queries or seek assistance whenever because the customer service is very responsive.

  23. Cathy Duhn on

    Because of this i try Vodds and i must say it is worth the try. They accept deposit in crypto. I will continue using it in the future.

  24. Derrick Kepler on

    The only hassle thing using their service is that users from the UK can’t use Skrill atm and so I had to set up a crypto account to make a deposit.

    But so far all is good, a quite simple platform, I love their new version of the site. It’s in the dark mode now. I also used their 150 first deposit bonus for crypto users.

  25. highly recommended betting platform. a wide range of asian books is available and works almost similar to molly. with decent odds and high liquidity, would be better if there are more markets for soccer tho.

  26. Cliff Allen on

    Have been using vodds for a while now because i loved the comfort of betting on several bookies at the same time without having a bunch of accounts. Just want even more nba bets

  27. Jorge Jose on

    Discovering Asian bookies on VOdds improved my betting experience. Their betting options are really good, though sometimes I can’t find events and markets I’d be interested in, hope they’ll add more soon. It’s much more convenient to use aggregator than single bookie. Wish they had wider range of bonuses.

  28. vodds legit betting site has an appealing design and features all of the popular leagues, the payment options of vodds safe organized and very easy to use the funding method.

  29. very nice improvements, they have added Psports, a Pinnacle white label to the platform that allows me to bet on a wider selection of sports and markets

  30. recently opened an account with VODDS since Hockey and other sports I like are available, they have so many welcome bonuses offered too!! 🙂

  31. always replying and processing my withdrawals fast, everything is good with VODDS, they provide API services too
