If you choose a bookmaker that offers live streaming of snooker to its customers, you can benefit from a ‘one-stop shop’ where you have everything that you need in a single place. The only condition with the majority of betting sites is that you need to have a positive balance in order to access the live snooker video feeds, or occasionally you will find that a stream is unlocked once a bet has been placed.
More and more fans are now choosing bookmakers that offer live streaming of snooker because they are able to watch all of the table action live and place their bets without having to view multiple windows or tabs.
The good news here is that a number of major bookmakers have jumped onto this trend, meaning that there are plenty of bonus offers out there for new players to take advantage of.
Betfair offers a comprehensive snooker streaming service, and although you are required to have a positive account balance to view their live snooker content, there is no need to actually place a bet to start watching (horse racing and greyhound racing are the only sports that require a stake before watching). If you haven’t used Betfair before, their new customer bonus is very generous, with up to £100-worth of free bets available.
William Hill is another popular choice for snooker fans who are looking for live video action and a new player bonus – they offer £30 of free bets that are activated once a player has staked £10. To access the live action, members need either a positive balance or they need to have placed a bet within the previous 24 hours.
Unibet’s in-house live streaming service UTV offers a comprehensive range of live sports including snooker, and new customers can enjoy a £40 money back promotion for their first bet – an additional £10 casino bonus is also included. Live snooker action can be accessed by having a positive account balance, or you also qualify if you have placed any sort of bet within the last 24 hours.
Bet365’s single-screen layout for live video and betting markets makes it very straightforward to keep up with all the snooker action, and they currently give new players access to up to £100 in free bet credits. Again, the live video is available provided that you have a positive account balance or have made a bet within the previous 24 hours.
Live Snooker Streaming On Mobile
For the best possible in-play snooker betting experience, it is definitely worth downloading a bookmaker’s dedicated mobile app – this gives you the live action and the betting options in one screen.
Mobile apps are usually laid out perfectly for your smartphone or tablet device, and provided that you have a strong Wi-Fi connection or mobile data signal, you are able to place your bets and get frame-by-frame updates no matter where you are.
Live Snooker Streaming Events & Tournaments
The best thing about snooker is that there are live tournaments available for streaming right up until the end of the 2018/2019 season, but perhaps the highlight of 2019 will be the World Championship taking place at the end of April. Will Mark Williams successfully defend his title and make it a fantastic four?
Before that, fans can bet on The Masters in January, and February brings the World Grand Prix and the Welsh Open. The China Open takes place at the beginning of April, and the in-play betting opportunities continue with The Seniors Masters just before the much-anticipated World Championship gets underway.
