Free Bets on Boylesports

Boylesports is Ireland's leading independant bookmaker and has been going from strength to strength since its began more than 20 years ago.

Our Boylesports review

Background

John Boyle began his bookmaking business in 1989 and gradually expanded to 140 betting shops across Ireland.

On the way Boylesports developed a telephone business which now operates as Fon-A-Bet and is run from the company's state-of-the-art headquarters in Dundalk, County Louth.

Boylesports invested heavily in new technology and launched its internet betting site in 2001, it is licensed in the Isle of Man.

The company has grown to become of the leading UK online bookmakers and is committed to supporting sport through a range of sponsorships packages.

The Boylesports brand continues to be associated with high profile horse racing in Ireland and at Cheltenham along with greyhound racing at the track and on the coursing fields.

Boylesports became Official Betting Partners of the FA of Ireland in 2008 and sponsor a number of one-off events and annual golf tournaments.

Offers and Promotions

We think Boylesports introductory offer of a free £20 is one the best welcome offers, giving a free match bet on stakes of at least £5.

Boylesports also feature daily cashback special offers, they change them up a little but generally centre around cashback if a specified player scores the last goal in a featured football game or the last try in a featured rugby game. 

Customers will also see cashback offers for first scoring play in rugby and Gaelic sports or if a football team leads and fails to win. In addition, Boylesports offer racing cashback specials for selections finishing second.

A constant Boylesport offer is the Best Price Guarantee, which ensures you won't miss out if taking an early price or board price and the SP of your selection ends up bigger.

Boylesport customers will also find regular prize competitions throughout the year.

When putting it all together, Boylesports offer one of the best online offers and promotion packages for sportsbook punters.

Odds & Markets

Boylesports post odds for around 20 different sports plus and there are plenty of betting markets for the all the major sports, including In:Play. The offering is not the most extensive available, but the number of markets continues to increase and Boylesports is not far behind the leading online websites for betting opportunities. You'll also find a goode selection of novelty bets for TV shows,politics and other topical interests.

The odds are competitive, with Boylesports betting to tight margins on racing and football. The odds compilers don't appear to be afraid to back their opinions and Boylesports will often be seen as the stand out price for some very popular selections.

Being based in Ireland, you will expect and see a great coverage of GAA Hurling and GAA Football. Any discerning punters should also be watching out for some tremendous each way value as Boylesports will often offer enhanced place terms and pay out on extra places for high profile races and sports events.

Pay out limits are very good with the potential for €500,000 winnings, punters are unlikely to feel constrained.

Website

The pages load quickly, navigating around Boylesports website is simple enough and there are plenty of features and useful information that you will want to check out. There are racing and sports stats, Bet Calculator, Live Betting Diary and of course, you should always check the Cashback & Promotions page to make sure you don't miss out any one of Boylesports many offers.

The Bet Tutorial not only offers a Betting Guide, but will show you how to register and make a deposit with Boylesports in addition using other features on the website. Boylesports will accept all major debit/credit cards (except Solo, AmEx and prepaid cards), Neteller, Moneybookers, Bank Transfers and Drafts/Cheques.

Boylesports recommend smartphone users switch to the classic site, which will give access to betting and account settings and is a usable compromise.

Boylesports also offer a very neat toolbar that can be installed on your pc. Named, the I-Bar, it provides quick access to Sports and other News with over 50,000 RSS feeds bringing news from around the world. It features a personlised ticker and gives one-click access to Boylesports home page and will bring you previews of upcoming offers and promotions.

Visitors to Boylesports can watch Live Horse Racing video with the rather expensive Bet and Watch feature for a minimum £5 bet. There is no live sports stream, but the sports radio provides previews and commentary on racing and other sports. 

Customer Service

Its plain to see that the provision of excellent customer service and facilities is at the heart of Boylesports philosophy and the company is constantly finding new ways to improve on a very good service.

It hasn't been plain sailing for Boylesports who came in for some minor criticism for  a lack of communication in the early days, however the company embraced the need to improve and recent feedback suggests they are doing a great job.

The website has excellent guides and FAQs with Live Chat available by clicking the Live Help link at the top of every page.

Customer service is available 24/7 and in addition to chat, you can contact Boylesports by email or by telephone. Toll-free numbers are provided for the UK and Ireland with a local number for the rest of the world.

Reputation

Boylesports has been trading as a traditional bookmaker for over 20 years and has handled millions of financial transactions over that time with countless satisfied customers.

The website uses the latest SSL encryption to keep your information private and secure.

Boylesports is regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commision and is committed to promoting responsible gambling. The company is affiliated to IBAS (Independant Betting Adjudication Service) and in the unlikely event that any dispute cannot be resolved to the customer's satisfaction, Boylesports will abide by the decision of IBAS.

 

Verdict

Considering Boylesports is an independent bookmaker, the company only really lacks in the niceties of a couple of website features and a few obscure betting opportunities.

It competes vigourously with the corporate giants with good value prices and beats most of them comfortably with its offers and promotions.

We can't think of any reason not to bet with Boylesports but there are plenty reasons why we do bet with the Irish firm.
