Bonuses and Promotions
Unfortunately, the Sky Ute Sportsbook does not offer any form of welcome bonuses, ongoing promotions, or loyalty program to its users. While this may deter some customers, loyal Sky Ute Casino fans will surely download the mobile app. There may be a welcome bonus released later, but for the time being, there are not any available.
The Sky Ute Sportsbook covers a fair range of sporting events inclusive of major leagues such as the MLB, NBA, and NFL. For more niche sporting events, you may want a larger sportsbook with more variety in what it offers. A full list of all the sports available to wager on using the Sky Ute Sportsbook is as follows:
Alongside a good coverage of sporting events, the Sky Ute Sportsbook also offers an exciting array of wagering options. They cover all of the following types of bets:
- Moneyline Bets
- In-Play Bets
Not all types of wagers will be available for all sporting events. For example, a more niche sport such as boxing only has the option to place a moneyline or proposition bet. On the other hand, events such as football have all of the above wagering types available. You can also place bets on halftime and quarter-time outcomes and events.
Live in-play betting is becoming increasingly popular throughout the US and is a lively and exciting option available from your mobile device. These are wagers placed after the game has commenced with odds updated depending on the play of the game. This form of betting allows you to get a feel for the game before making your bets.
Signing up and registering for a Sky Ute Sportsbook account is simple. You do not need to take a trip to the casino and sign up in person. Instead, it can all be done through the convenience of your mobile phone by following these steps:
- Download the Sky Ute Sportsbook mobile app to your device:
- Android users can download directly from the Sky Ute website
- iOS users can download directly from the Sky Ute website or from the App Store
- Open the app and complete the registration form inclusive of your social security number and personal information.
- Create or login to an existing Play+ account to deposit funds into your account and start placing wagers to win real money.
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
The methods or rather lack of methods available to deposit and withdraw funds to and from the Sky Ute Sportsbook is the app’s main drawback. The only option is by using Play+. This can be a nuisance for players who do not already hold a Play+ account. Once the mobile app has been downloaded to your device, you will be prompted automatically to either “Join Play+” or sign in to your pre-existing account.
Although creating a new Play+ account can be annoying, once set up it is easy to deposit funds and all monies are credited to your Sky Ute Sportsbook account immediately. This means you can start placing wagers on their site straight away. You will need to deposit a minimum of $25. There is hope that the Sky Ute Casino will be adding more options for depositing and withdrawing funds in the future and that the limited methods currently available are simply due to the app’s recent launch.
Interface and Navigation
The Sky Ute Sportsbook is only available as a mobile app and sports wagers cannot be placed from a desktop website. The app is compatible with both Android and iOS devices and can be downloaded from the Sky Ute Casino website, or iPhone users can alternatively download it from the App Store. Unfortunately, the application is not currently available for download from Google Play. Once having downloaded the app, you can place sports wagers on the go and from anywhere in Colorado. Ensure that your phone’s GPS is on so that the app can pinpoint your location otherwise you will not be allowed to place bets.
The mobile app is well designed and intuitive. There is an A-Z of sports in the bottom left so you can conveniently find events and wagers to your liking. Once you have found a bet, tap it to add it to your bet slip which is also accessible from the bottom menu. All bets including current and past wagers can be viewed from the “My Bets” section.
The Sky Ute Sportsbook has several means of customer support in place to help with any queries relating to your sportsbook account:
- FAQ page on their site for all generic queries
- “How To Bet Guide” for help with wagering types and sports betting lingo
- Contact form on their website
- Can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Can be written to at P.O. Box 340, Ignacio, CO 81137
Although there is no online chat option like many online sportsbooks offer, the majority of questions will be answered in the FAQs and “How To” guidebook. If you cannot find your answer, the option to get the quickest response will be via email. Unfortunately, any pressing questions and urgent queries that cannot be answered online will take a little while to receive a response. Their customer support is available from 10am – 10pm daily.
Overall, the new Sky Ute Sportsbook is is an exciting new venture for the Sky Ute Casino who have made history as the first of Colorado’s tribal casinos to release a mobile sports betting platform. Where the site does fall short on promotions and depositing and withdrawal options, the app does well in other areas. They offer comprehensive coverage of all major sports and interesting wagers, inclusive of in-play betting. The convenience of the mobile app also means you can place wagers from anywhere in Colorado. The app could improve by adding more options for transferring funds and offering a bonus in line with its competitors. Nevertheless, the Sky Ute Sportsbook is a good and fully functioning app, and these improvements may be made soon as the sportsbook finds its feet.
