2024 SBC Awards

Awards Open: Wednesday 12th June


Our 2024 Awards are bigger and better than ever as you can now vote for everything from your best & worst bookmakers through to your favourite betting podcasts, websites, videos, writers, experts and tipsters.

You will see some different contenders in certain categories this year as we noted down all of those organisations and individuals who garnered considerable support outside of the shortlists


3 Special Prizes Up For Grabs – Simply For Voting!

This year there are 3 prizes to be won simply for casting your vote. They are:

1st prize: A ticket to SmartBash, the networking and seminar event that you can read about here: https://smart-bash.com (tickets cost £200 so this is quite the prize!)

13 Categories To Vote In

There are 13 categories in the 2024 SBC Awards you can vote in. They are:

  • Your Favourite Free Horse Racing Tipster
  • Your Favourite Free Sports Tipster
  • Your Favourite Horse Racing Podcast
  • Your Favourite Sports Betting Podcast
  • Your Favourite Betting Website
  • Your Favourite Betting Data Resource
  • Your Favourite Betting Writer
  • Your Favourite Betting Video Producer
  • Your Favourite Betting Expert
  • Your Favourite Major Bookmaker
  • Your Worst Bookmaker
  • Your Favourite Betting Exchange
  • Your Favourite Independent Bookmaker

Voting itself should take no more than 3 minutes of your time and will help us highlight those companies and people doing the right (and wrong!) thing by you and punters generally.

Perhaps it’s the bookmaker or betting exchange offering the best odds and service or even the betting website providing a superb resource for punters.

And, as we know, not all bookies play fair – you can also nominate your worst bookmaker from over the last 12 months to help us expose the firm that let you down the most. Perhaps they restricted your stakes, closed your account or simply offered the worst odds and service going. If so, we want to know who they are!

All told, it’s an excellent way to really highlight the people, sites and services making a difference to your betting!

A Truly ‘Ordinary Punter’ Representative Awards

These Awards are important as they are based on the fundamental SBC principles of honesty, fairness and independence, with no bookmaker affiliations or advertising budgets to cloud opinions.

They represent the true judgement of the general betting public and SBC members on what is out there of merit in the betting world and is worthy of greater recognition.

They reward those websites, services, bookmakers and individuals doing the right thing – whether it be in the information or resource they provide OR by simply offering you the best place to bet itself.

It’s not just the ‘best of’ in our sights either as we are not afraid to name and shame the worst bookmakers through these awards, as many of them still treat punters as second-class citizens, especially those shrewd enough to make money betting. If a bookmaker has annoyed or frustrated you – you can vote for them in our worst bookmaker category.

So, if you want to help reward the best and expose the worst- make sure you cast your votes now!

About The Smart Betting Club

The Smart Betting Club is an independent service dedicated to helping its members and readers make their betting a success. Primarily this is through our detailed Tipster Reviews & Tipster Profit Reports on the experts to follow to do just that, be it with bookmakers and/or betting exchanges.

In recent years, our remit has expanded beyond simply reporting on the best tipsters to uncovering the truth on the betting world itself – be it the bookmakers/exchanges you bet with or the resources, websites, podcasts & content providers that help you make informed betting decisions.

Therefore, to recognize those making a positive impact, we now publish these Awards to help showcase the very best of both the betting & tipping world.
