Is Boylesports Safe?

Boylesports has been an established betting brand since 1989 and has built up a reputation for being a trustworthy and reputable bookmaker.

For UK customers, Boylesports is licenced and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and they also hold a licence from the Government of Gibraltar for customers outside of the UK.

Boylesports offers a 'Medium' protection level to customers' funds. This means that arrangements have been made to protect customers' funds should the company experience financial difficulties. A Medium protection level is in line with several other top bookies such as William Hill, Bet365, Virgin Bet, Ladbrokes, SpreadEx, Sky Bet, 888Sport and more.

We are happy to recommend Boylesports as a safe and trustworthy bookmaker.

How Good Is Boylesports's Horse Racing Service?

Being an Irish bookmaker, you'd expect there to be a heavy focus on horse racing at Boylesports, and there is. However, that's not to say that the service falls short with other sports as it most definitely doesn't.

In short, Boylesports is an excellent bookmaker for betting on horse racing. As well as competitive odds, Boylesports have various horse racing offers available throughout the week. They also offer live streaming of horse races and horse racing audio commentary throughout the day.

A number of horse racing bet types are available at Boylesports including Win & Each Way, Place Betting, Betting Without, Lucky 15's and they will settle bets as winners based on both the Official Result as well as First Past The Post.

Horse Racing Betting Offers

Boylesports have horse racing offers available on any day that racing is taking place.

Best Odds Guaranteed: Place a bet on a horse in any UK or Irish race and if the Starting Price is greater, Boylesports will pay out on the bigger price.

Extra Places: Boylesports offer extra places on selected races throughout the week. Visit the promotions page daily to view the latest eligible races and extra place offers.

Money-Back if 2nd to SP Fav: Another common horse racing offer at Boylesports. Back a horse in an eligible race and if they finish 2nd to the Starting Price Favourite, you'll receive your stake back as a free bet up to £20.

Horse Racing Odds

Boylesports horse racing odds are competitive when compared to other top racing bookies such as William Hill, Betfred and Bet365. Along with the horse racing offers available at Boylesports, you can be confident that you're getting value on your racing bets.

What Makes Them Different?

Boylesports was founded over 30 years ago and has grown from strength to strength since. Several new bookmakers emerge each year but many prefer to bet with a trusted bookmaker with a long-standing positive reputation. The reason Boylesports is a highly respected bookmaker is because of the excellent all-round service that they offer with their sports, casino, lotto, bingo and poker products which makes them stand out from many of their competition.

Here are a few things we like about Boylesports.

  1. Established and reputable bookmaker for over 30 years

  2. Generous welcome offer

  3. Regular betting offers for existing customers for horse racing, football and other sports

  4. Casino, Lotto, Bingo & Poker products

  5. Excellent customer service

  6. BoyleXtra card with various benefits to reward loyal customers

BoyleXtra Card

A BoyleXtra Card allows you to connect your online Boylesports account with your betting activity in a Boylesports betting shop and vice versa. It comes with several benefits that we will look at below.

How To Get A BoyleXtra Card

To get a BoyleXtra Card, simply head to your nearest Boylesports betting shop and ask for one over the counter. Their staff members should be able to set you up within a matter of minutes and you can start receiving benefits immediately.

What Are The Benefits?

There are several benefits of having a BoyleXtra Card including free bets, exclusive betting offers, entry into prize draws as well as being able to place bets in a Boylesports shop using funds from your online account. You can also withdraw cash funds from your online account in a Boylesports shop.

How To Use A BoyleXtra Card

Simply tap your card at the counter when placing bets in a Boylesports betting shop and you'll start to gain access to exclusive offers and benefits. If you want to pay for a bet using funds in your online account, just let the staff know at the counter.

Cash Out

As with many of the top bookmakers, Boylesports allow customers to Cash Out their bets before they have settled. This means that you can end your bet early for a set amount to cut your losses, lock in a profit or even if you have simply changed your mind about your bet.

Boylesports Cash Out is available on selected sports, markets and events for both pre-match and in-play bets as well as for single and multiple bets. Some sports that Cash Out is available on at Boylesports include Football, Tennis, GAA, Darts, Rugby, Snooker, Golf, Basketball, Cricket and Baseball.

Currently, Boylesports Cash Out is only available for Win bets and not on Each Way bets.

To cash out a bet that you have placed with Boylesports, log into your account and click on the 'Cash Out' link in the top menu. Any bets that are eligible for cash out will display the cash out amount alongside them. Simply click to confirm you'd like to cash out and the funds will be instantly credited to your cash balance.

If you are cashing out on mobile either via the Boylesports mobile website or the Boylesports app, there is a 'Cash Out' button in the sticky menu at the bottom of the screen.

Can You Stream Sports On Boylesports?

Live streaming is available for all UK & Irish horse and greyhound races as well as a selection of international races.

Unfortunately, other sports such as Football, Basketball and Table Tennis are not available to stream live at Boylesports which is a slight disappointment as Boylesports scores highly in the majority of other areas. However, horse and greyhound racing is perhaps the most popular sport to watch live through a bookies website and so will satisfy the majority of customers.

Any race that does have a live stream available will display a TV icon alongside it. In order to access a stream, you must be logged into your account and have placed a bet of £1 or more on the race that you want to watch.

Streams are of excellent quality and can be accessed both via the Boylesports website and through the Boylesports app.

In-Play Betting

By clicking on the 'In-Play' link on the Boylesports website, you'll be greeted with a list of all live events that are available to bet on. Boyles cover over 30 different sports and hundreds of leagues and competitions taking place all around the world and so there is always an excellent selection of in-play events at any time of the day.

As with the pre-match odds, we have no complaints about the odds they offer on live events which again, held up well against other popular bookies. Boylesports certainly offer an excellent selection of in-play betting markets.

As mentioned, live streaming is only available for horse racing and greyhounds at Boylesports but they do offer an excellent selection of in-play stats for pretty much all live events. As well as a live 'Match Tracker' to visually see what is happening in the event, you also have access to in-play statistics, Head to Head records, live standings and a timeline of events.

The Boylesports App

If you decide to bet with Boylesports then we fully recommend downloading the Boylesports App. The app is free to download from the app stores and is available for all iOS and Android devices.

There are  dedicated apps for their Sports and Casino products and so if you would like to make the most of both, you will have to download the two apps. Although, there is a limited number of casino games such as Blackjack, Roulette and a selection of slots that are available via the Sports App.

The Boylesports App is a useful way to be notified of new betting offers as well as being handy for placing bets on the move, checking scores and watching live horse and greyhound racing.

Boylesports Casino

Head to the Boylesports Casino and you'll find hundreds of games available to play. There are dozens of table games such as Blackjack, Roulette, Heads-Up Hold'em, Deuces Wild and Baccarat as well as a good selection of online slots. New games are added on a regular basis meaning that there is a good balance between new titles and classic slots such as Age of the Gods, Epic Ape, Tip Top Totems and Bowling Frenzy.

Boylesports also have regular offers for casino players such as free spins and bonuses to be used on selected games. Be sure to visit the promotions page or opt-in to marketing to find out about these offers.

Live Casino

Live Casino games are becoming increasingly popular with players and there is an excellent selection of them available in the Boylesports Casino.

Live Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Sic Bo and Poker are all available to play 24 hours a day and there is also a selection of live games with dealers and croupiers speaking different languages such as Spanish, Italian, German, French and more.

If you enjoy the excitement of live game shows then you have various options at Boylesports. Popular games such as Deal or No Deal - The Big Draw, God of Storms Live, Quantum Blackjack, Adventures Beyond Wonderland, Spin A Win and others are available.

Boylesports Lotto

A small selection of bookmakers allow you to bet on lotteries and Boylesports is one of them. Being an Irish bookie, betting on the Irish Lotto is of course available which is perhaps the most popular choice. However, there are several other worldwide lotteries to bet on here such as the 49's, Daily Millions, Australian Lotto, Franch Lotto, German Lotto, New York Lotto, Canadian Lotto, Greek Lotto, Hong Kong Lotto, Spanish Lotto and Polish Lotto.

All lotto bets are placed at fixed odds which means that you know how much your returns will be if you win. You can also choose from a number of different betting options compared to buying a standard lottery ticket such as betting on 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 of your numbers being drawn and whether or not to include the bonus ball in your bet.

Deposit & Withdrawal Options

Boylesports offer customers an excellent range of deposit & withdrawal methods which include debit cards along with pre-paid cards and e-wallet options such as PayPal, Neteller and Skrill.

The following banking methods are accepted at Boylesports:

  • Debit cards

  • Skrill

  • Neteller
