Skybet can be defined as a sports betting online platform. In order to access it you will be required to create a Skybet account. The account creation process is not complicated and can be done by following some simple steps. In case you discover you no longer want to use the account or you created it by mistake, you can follow a simple ‘Skybet delete account’ to disable or completely remove it. Everything about Skybet is well explained and you can get setup in a few minutes.
As quoted by the majority of Skybet reviews and from my personal experience creating an account on Skybet is quite simple and takes several minutes. To begin with, you will need to visit one of their websites and click on the ‘Join’ or ‘Register’ link usually found on the top left-hand corner of the screen. The page that loads will give you the option of keying in personal details such as your address, date of birth and your full name. When it comes to filling in your address you have the option of using the ‘Auto Complete Address’ function. If you are living in the Republic of Ireland, use ROI as your postal code. After you have completed the details on this page, click on ‘Continue to Step 2’.
At this point, you will be required to choose a unique user ID and a PIN. Both of these can contain letters and/or numbers. For security with dealing with future account queries, you will be required to provide answers to two security questions. Finish by selecting your currency and clicking on ‘Continue to Step 3’.
Closing or deleting a Skybet account may not be as challenging as some people may think. In fact, the sports betting company strives to ensure you get the very best service possible. However, in case you wish to leave they provide you with an easy account deactivation or deleting process. When you go to ‘My Account’ or ‘My Details’, you will find a delete account or close account option. Any of these can be used to effectively close your account. The process is simple and normally takes a few minutes to complete.
Just like any other online platform, you may come across problems when you want to login to your Skybet account. If this happens, there are some measures you should take. For starters, the company has a self-service option to help you get back in. If you have forgotten your password or user ID, these options can help you recover the same in a quick and efficient manner.
There are some reasons why your account may be locked. Top on the list is entering your PIN incorrectly a number of times. To avoid any unauthorised access, your account will be blocked. To ensure it is unblocked you will be required to follow an online process. Sometimes you may not be able to get the required information using the online process. If this is the case you will need to consider whether you have an old email address or postcode registered on the system. They may be the key to unlocking your account. In case you want your PIN changed you will have to go to ‘My Account’, ‘My Details’ or ‘Edit Account Details’, and then the ‘Edit PIN’ or ‘PIN & Contact Preferences’ buttons/links.
Just like any other sports betting platform, Skybet will experience a few technical hitches here and there. Knowing the most common can help you expedite the problem-solving process. They are:
Refresh - It is the most simple and probably the easiest solution. When you encounter any problems when attempting to view the lobbies, launch a game or place bets, just refresh or reload the page.
Alternate browser - If refreshing does not work, you may try logging into your account while using a different browser than your default one. For example, if you are using Google Chrome, you may opt to try Mozilla Firefox, Safari or Opera. If this does not work, you should try to update your current browser as some updates may be missing for the browser to work well with Skybet.
Some basic cleaning up - When you have tried both of the above methods in vain, go to the ‘Tools’ or ‘Options’ menu of your browser. You should be able to find an option for deleting or clearing your browsing history. Occasionally your browsing application may remember or save an area of the site from a previous visit which helps it to speed up the page load. Such a move will cause issues with any latest versions of the website as the browser will refer to an out-of-date function or area. Clearing your cache or history often can normally resolve such issues.
Restart the PC - Some functions, components or applications may need your computer to be restarted in order for them to work properly. A full restart of the system may eradicate any problems you may be experiencing.
Reinstalling Flash Player or Java - Some aspects of Skybet need Flash and Java to display information. It is, therefore, important to make sure you have the latest version of Flash Player and Java on your computer. Alternatively, you can uninstall and install one or both of these programs to resolve any issues you may be experiencing.
Run an Antivirus - Installing a highly rated antivirus program will ensure your computer is in full working order. At the same time, you should run regular security checks. Such checks will help you know if your system has any issues with general internet browsing.
Payment problems - These are problems that only occur after you have tried to make a withdrawal or deposit request in vain. In case you are sure the error has not been caused by an error in details entered, you should contact their customer care platform through the ‘Contact Us’ links on the Skybet website. The problem will be investigated with their Admin teams and a solution will be offered as soon as possible.
Use the Withdraw Funds button found under the Banking tab of My Account to withdraw any money you want. Once you click on the button, enter the amount you want to withdraw and then click ‘withdraw’. For an e-wallet withdrawals will take approximately 24 hours, but it takes two to five business days for withdrawing to a card.
Sometimes your account may have what is known as ‘Net Deposits’ on a different card on your account. The alternate card may prevent you from making a withdrawal of a certain amount to a certain e-wallet or card. The measure has been put in place to safeguard against fraud, money laundering and so forth. It basically means whatever is spent with an e-wallet or card goes to go back to the same payment method.
There are several reasons why you may receive less than what you had deposited. However, the reason of such a situation is usually explained within your Account’s History area. Some of the main reasons such a situation may occur at Skybet is reduction in Each Way terms, ‘Perm’ Betting, Non-Runners, Dead Heats or Rule 4s.
Deposits are made using a variety of options. The process starts by clicking on the ‘Deposit’ option found on the top of your screen in ‘My Account’. Make sure you are logged in as this is the only way you can deposit to your account. The minimum deposit amount is five pounds and the majority of deposits are free. Take note that some credit cards may charge a small fee for deposits and this is determined by your credit/debit card provider. Skybet also accepts e-wallets like Neteller, Moneybookers (currently known as Skrill) and PayPal.
