BoyleSports

BoyleSports have been about since 1989 and are based out of Dundalk, Ireland. In fact, the company are so large that they are now Ireland’s biggest independent online bookmaker, which is a pretty amazing feat given the number of bookmakers that have been developed on their shores.

The success of BoyleSports will likely come as little surprise to many and likely to you, once you start poking around the site. They are pretty much the complete package offering both an extensive range of sports, casino, poker and bingo variants catering for all users of the gambling industry.

When you register your new account with BoyleSports you are going to be able to get your hands on a £20 free bet. The free bet is actually triggered when you place your first bet of just £10, which essentially means that you get a 200% match, one of the biggest in the industry to date!

The promotion whilst when you deposit your funds and make you first bet of just £10 at odds of 2,00 (evens) or greater. Once this bet has been placed you will then get £20 of free bets to use on any sports within the bookmaker. The free bet will be credited to your account in the form of 4 x £5 free bets, with the first being applied within 6 hours of your first betting settled. Then every 24 hours you get another £5 free bet until the £20 quota has been met. You will need to make sure that you place your qualifying bet within 30 days of registering your account and any winnings from your free bet will not include the stake.

Odds and Markets

The bookmakers pricing structure has seen massive improvement over the last few years and it really feels like BoyleSports have turned a corner with this. It was here where the company cam under some relatively heavy fire and was one of the reasons as to why we felt they weren’t performing as well as they could be. It’s a different story today though and from the odds that we tested, they were right up there with the best and at worst they were competitive.

Just like their pricing, market coverage has increased a lot as well, but this has been increase across the industry, so BoyleSports were almost forced to follow suit just to keep up. Horse racing plays a massive role on site, but unlike other bookmakers, we really felt that coverage throughout the bookmaker was pretty even. Notable mentions have to come in for the likes of tennis, American football, Greyhound racing, GAA Hurling and GAA Football, each of which offer up a great range of markets to bet on.

Live Betting

The live betting is an absolute hive of activity and a section of the site that we thought was one of their best. First thing that strikes you is the layout of the liv betting section and just how many games they have running. But, not only that, you were able to quickly see latest scores and latest odds for these games before actually clicking on a more in-depth look. It’s here where you can highlight certain games and even add them to your favourites list to makes things more condensed.

As you jump into the matches it does feel a little more subdued and with it you can see the latest score and the current betting markets. The lack of a match centre to track live events and see extended statistics was a big loss in our opinion.

Other Features

BoyleSports is one of those bookmakers that feel more like a sports-hub than anything else. It feels as though you could land on the site to hear all the latest sports news and results from around the world and this is partly down to the inclusion of their Betting News section. Within it they not only have their own crack team of journalist and reporters creating content one everything from transfer rumours to betting strategies, but on top of that they have reputable sources from within the world of sport such as Stan Collymore, offering you insight that is pretty much invaluable to the Average Joe punter.

The statistics section on site is also wroth a mention and even though it’s not something that is new to the industry or even BoyleSports for that matter, it’s a section which has again allowed them to really add some depth to the bookmaker. You can grab info from dozens of sports and also competitions that you likely didn’t even know existed, highlighting just how in-depth it is.

Finally we just want to touch on their latest addition, which is cash out! It’s likely that most of you will have used or be familiar with cash out betting in some form and at Boyle it’s not really any different. One thing that did want to mention is that it states that it’s not available on all sports or markets, although doesn’t really go into much detail about which. We’d guess there will be some trial and error here to see what it does accept and what it doesn’t. Failing that, contact customer support prior to placing your bet if you think you will need it.

Other Promotions

Ay Boylesports you are going to be able to grab a ton of other promotions on site. The offers that you can claim will vary, but you can expect things like double your winnings on selected Premier League matches and markets, money back on golf bets if your pick finishes second or third, money back on horse racing if your jockey falls at the first and also double winning if your side hits the crossbar in football.

Some longer running offers include that if the Football Acca insurance of which will refund your bet up to £25 if your 5+ fold accumulator loses by just 1 leg. Also, they offer best prices guaranteed on both horse racing and greyhound racing throughout the UK and Ireland.

Casino Games at BoyleSports

The casino at Boylesports is a really nice addition to the sportsbook. It’s not as big as some and they cant really compete with the likes of the standalone casinos, but as a package, we feel that it works really well.

Casino Welcome Offer

If you decide to register at Boylesports via the casino then you can take on a welcome package that’s worth over £300. The package will consist of 3 bonuses in total, which are reflective of your opening three deposits on site. The bonuses are as follows:

  • Second – 50% match up to £100
  • Third – 100% match up to £100

Software and Games

Boylesports casino is fairly unique in that it uses just one software provider in the form of PlayTech. Whilst it could be argued that this does limit the range of games that they can offer up, it does allow them to offer up a download option for both Mac and Windows users, a feature that is quickly dying off in today’s market but one that we feel still has a place.

The games on offer, as we said, are limited, but this doesn’t mean they are dull. They include a number of branded games such as Ace Ventura, Batman, Britain’s Got Talent and Thor. On top of that they have table games such as blackjack, roulette and carps, along with classic slots, jackpot games and video poker.

Casino Offers

At the casino you will be able to choose between a number of different offers to use such as their cash back builder which allows you to claim up to 20% cash back from within the casino. On top of that there are the random cash drops where users get selected for certain cash prizes and also the Slottery Spins where each Friday, as long as you’ve ben active through the week, you will be given some free spins to use.
