The GMBLRS Detective
The site has a simplified layout with headings for Sports, Slots, Live Casino and Esports, and sub-headings with extra categories will depend on which version of the site you access depending on your location. A search facility works well to pluck out your favourite games, and the theme is a sporty one with bold colours in orange and dark grey livery.
Under the heading of Slots, you will find some of the biggest stars in game development, including Microgaming, Big Time Gaming, Nolimit City, Play’n GO, Elk Studios, AvatarUX, Yggdrasil Gaming, 4ThePlayer, Thunderkick, Bulletproof Games, ReelPlay, Bluprint and Gamomat. Always check RTP upon loading a game as the group are known for choosing lower than the default versions.
Evolution Gaming host the Live Casino tables with charismatic dealers on-hand for Poker, Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette, plus various twists of the norm like Super Sic Bo, Lightning Roulette and Power Blackjack. The award-winning selection of game show and board game titles such as Monopoly Live, Dream Catcher and Crazy Time complete the selection.
SportNation’s core focus is its comprehensive Sportsbook, offering a wide range of betting options from Parlays, Outright betting, Handicaps and Part Handicaps through to Live In-Play Cashouts for hundreds of markets. You can select a Sportsbook welcome offer instead of Casino and take your pick of everything from Boxing, Rugby and Football, to Gaelic Hurling and Stock Car Racing. SportNation has a dedicated Esports section for taking a punt on the tournament winners of games like Counter-Strike or DOTA 2.

The GMBLRS’ Detective Verdict
It should be noted the quality and feel of the SportNation site varies greatly depending on your location. Canadians and New Zealanders, for example, have terms and conditions with sentences cut short from view where the site has not been fully optimised for use. There are no promotions except for the welcome offers and a basic layout with four headings and no sub-headings such as New or Top Games.
However, British and Finnish players have a completely different site that’s fluid, full of promotions, bonus offers, loyalty rewards, and is neatly laid out with well-organised sub-sections. Whichever version you have access to will dramatically change your SportNation experience. Payment methods, processing times and responsible gambling are more uniform across both versions, and you can expect a good standard of service in those respects.
