Virgin Bet was launched in 2019 as a dedicated betting app. In the months following its release, a website was launched and Virgin Bet now offer online betting across all devices.

Virgin Bet was initially launched in partnership with Gamesys Group and SB Tech but is now owned by the LiveScore Group which operates LiveScoreBet and

The Virgin brand is well-known in the UK which has no-doubt helped the bookmaker to reach the level of success that it has to this point but how good actually is Virgin Bet and should you choose to bet there rather than bookies such as Betfair, Bet365 or Betfred?

This Virgin Bet review will take an in-depth look at what the betting site has to offer and any areas in which it fails in.

Is Virgin Bet Safe?

With a well-known and respected brand like Virgin, you’d expect your money to be safe with them but is that the case?

Virgin Bet is licensed and regulated in Great Britain by the UK Gambling Commission which means that you can be confident that everything is done above board on their part. They are also licenced in Gibraltar by the Government of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

As with all online bookies, Virgin Bet must state what level of protection they apply to customers’ funds. In this case they offer Medium protection which is in line with what bookmakers such as Boylesports, 888Sport, Sky Bet, Unibet, William Hill and several others offer. It means that arrangements are in place should the company go bust so that funds are returned to players rather than getting mixed up with company funds. 

Throughout the time Virgin Bet have been online, we have not heard of any significant reports of players having issues with security or safety of their funds. Therefore, we’re confident in saying that Virgin Bet is a safe bookie to bet with.

How Good Is Virgin Bet's Horse Racing Service?

Horse Racing is one of the main sports Virgin Bet focus on and they cover a huge number of races on a daily basis from countries such as UK, Ireland, France, South Africa and the USA.

Virgin Bet also have a number of racing offers available regularly which is great news for racing punters. We’ve listed a few of the most popular offers below.

Best Odds Guaranteed: Firstly, Best Odds Guaranteed is available on all UK & Irish horse races with Virgin Bet. Simply back a horse in any UK or Irish race and if the SP of your selection is greater than the price you took, your bet will be paid out at the bigger price should it win.

3/1 Winner Free Bet: Virgin Bet’s 3/1 racing offer is another popular promotion. Back a winner at odds of 3/1 or greater in selected races and along with your winnings, Virgin Bet will give you a free bet to the value of your stake up to a maximum of £20.

Extra Places: Extra Places are available on selected races and meetings regularly at Virgin Bet. Check the promotions page of their website or app for the latest eligible races.

Price Boosts: Virgin Bet have a dedicated Price Boost section. These can be applied to various sports, events and markets including horse racing so be sure to take a look each time you log in to see if there are any that take your fancy.

You can also stream horse racing live with Virgin Bet which we will go into more detail further down the review. Virgin Bet also pay Double Result on horse racing which means that they will settle bets as winners based on the Official Result as well as First Past The Post.

Virgin Bet horse racing odds are relatively competitive and we didn’t find too much of a difference between the several races that we checked and those offered by some of the more established bookies.

What Makes Virgin Bet Different?

Many bookmakers which have launched over the past few years have simply not lasted. It’s an extremely competitive industry and it’s not uncommon to see bookmakers come and go in a relatively short space of time. However, that hasn’t been the case with Virgin Bet and one of the reasons we believe they have lasted is due to offering an all-round excellent service.

The Virgin Bet sign up offer is excellent which drives the customers in and they have some great regular betting offers which gives you a reason to keep betting with them. 

Here are a few things we like about Virgin Bet:

  • From a well-known and respected UK brand

  • A generous welcome offer

  • Regular and attractive betting offers for existing customers

  • A user-friendly website & app

  • Fast payouts

Still not sure? Here are a few more features that you’ll have available as a Virgin Bet customer:

Cash Out

Like any top bookie, Virgin Bet offers a Cash Out option. This allows customers to end their bets early for a pre-agreed payout. 

Cash out is available on a range of sports and markets and via the Virgin Bet website and through the app. 

To cash out a bet, simply log into your account and go to the ‘My Bets’ section. If cash out is available, a Cash Out button will be displayed alongside your bet along with a cash out amount. If you are happy with the amount, click the button to confirm and the cash amount will be instantly credited to your account.

Price Boosts

As mentioned earlier, Virgin Bet offer daily Price Boosts on various sports such as Football, Horse Racing, Golf and more. There are often dozens of price boosts available every day for various sporting events and although the boosts generally aren’t huge, they do have value and may be of interest if you were looking to place that bet anyway.

Virgin Bet Fives

Virgin Bet Fives is a great feature of Virgin Bet and is available to play for free every week.

Each week, customers can enter Virgin Bet Fives and be given five random football players. They then get to spin the prize wheel to reveal a cash amount. Then, for every goal your five players score in their upcoming matches, you get a multiplier of the cash amount.

It’s a fun game to play and best of all, you can win cash prizes every week without risking a penny of your own money!  

Can You Stream Sports On Virgin Bet?

Another feature which makes Virgin Bet stand out is the ability to stream sports live. You can do this via the Virgin Bet website, mobile website or Virgin Bet app.

Various sporting events are available to stream every day at Virgin Bet with sports such as Football, Horse Racing and Tennis most popular.

Streams are free to access with the exception of some Horse Racing streams which requires you to place a bet on the race that you wish to watch.

Stream Live Horse Racing

As mentioned above, customers at Virgin Bet are able to stream live horse races. There is an excellent coverage with ALL races being available for all meetings in the UK, Ireland, France and South Africa.

Non-Irish races are free to access and require no bet to be placed. The only requirement is that you need to have a positive account balance. To access streams of Irish horse races, you will need to place a £1 bet or 50p each way bet on the race.

Many bookies require customers to place a bet on any horse race that they want to access the stream for and so to be able to access all UK racing streams without having to bet on the races is a huge bonus.

In-Play Betting

In-play betting is of course available at Virgin Bet with hundreds of live sporting events available to bet on every day. 

To view all live events, simply click on the ‘In-Play’ item in the menu.

There is a reasonable selection of in-play markets for the vast majority of events. Although, there are often more available on Premier League matches with some other bookies such as Bet365, William Hill and Paddy Power.

In-play odds at Virgin Bet, similar to their pre-match odds, are reasonable when compared to other popular bookmakers.

When live streams aren’t available, customers can view a range of in-play statistics and view the live ‘Match Tracker’ to gain more info on how the game is going.

The Virgin Bet App

When Virgin Bet was initially launched, it was a mobile-only bookmaker meaning that you couldn’t access the service via a desktop browser. Therefore, you’d expect the Virgin Bet app to be rather good. Thankfully, it is with being user-friendly, simplistic and clean and gives you access to everything that Virgin Bet has to offer.

You can download the Virgin Bet app from the app stores for both iOS and Android devices.

Virgin Bet Casino

As well as an impressive sportsbook, Virgin Bet also offers an online casino which all customers will have access to when they register an account with Virgin Bet. The casino doesn’t feature a great deal of games with around 100+ available but it will suit the more casual casino player who enjoys playing games such as Blackjack, Roulette and a selection of the most popular online slot games.

Despite not offering the widest range of games, Virgin Bet do run some regular promotions for their casino and they’re generally quite good. You’ll find regular free spin offers for various slots and the occasional casino bonus also.

Live Casino

A live casino is also available at Virgin Bet. Again, there is a better selection at some other online casinos but they do cover the most popular live casino games such as blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and have an impressive selection of Game Shows such as Monopoly Live, Crazy Time, Dream Catcher, Deal or No Deal Live and Mega Ball.

Deposit & Withdrawal Options

Virgin Bet doesn’t offer the largest selection of banking options but the majority of customers should be satisfied. We have listed available deposit & withdrawal methods below.

Virginbet Banking Methods

  • Debit Card

  • PayPal

Although it’s good to see PayPal as an available banking option, we would also like to see other popular online payment methods such as Neteller and Skrill.

Withdrawals to PayPal accounts are usually processed within 24 hours whereas funds generally take 2-7 days to reach bank accounts.

Customer Support

If you’re unsure of something regarding Virgin Bet, you may wish to first take a look in the ‘Help & FAQ’ section which features a host of information about banking, accounts, responsible gambling, promotions, technical issues and more. However, if you would rather talk to someone directly, there are a number of customer support options available 7 days a week.

Virgin Bet Email Address
