- More than 30 sports to bet on plus specials and virtual sports
Boylesports’ welcome offer isn’t straightforward, to say the least. In fact, I had to consult about half a dozen mathematicians just to help me work it out. I’ll post the wording they use first and see if you understand, then for those who don’t, I’ll translate below.
“Get up to £25 in free bets beginning with a Bet £10 Get £5 free bet then up to four more £5 free bets. After the initial £5 free bet you will receive a matched free bet equal to a 50% average of your next 3 qualifying bets up to £5. This will happen for every three qualifying bets up to four times for a maximum of £20 in free bets not including the original free bet. Maximum free bet received from 3 qualifying bets is £5 (must place an average of £30 in 3 bets to qualify for the full £5). Maximum £25 in free bets.”
So, ultimately, you’re privy to £25 in free bets which is split over 5 different bets of £10. So, therefore, you need to bet £50 to receive the £25 worth of free bets. I think.
Deposits and Withdrawals
The minimum single deposit and withdrawal is £10 and there is no maximum withdrawal or maximum deposit.
You can deposit and withdraw payments via Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, paysafecard, Euteller, Instadebit, GiroPay, Sofort Banking, and Boku.
As you’d expect from such a big name, BoyleSports offer a number of quirky and special features. We’ll start with the ones that relate to promotions and offers first (of which there are loads). Here’s a select few:
So, on all NFL matches BoyleSports pay double winnings on matches that go to overtime, they offer the best odds guaranteed on all horse races and greyhound races, they do acca insurance on all sports so if one match lets you on a 5 + acca you get a free bet, and you also get a free bet if your horse fails to start a race. There’s also a number of offers that crop during special events like Wimbledon, football international weekends, and big horse meets.
There’s also cash out, radio commentary for greyhound and horse races, a betting calculator, and a lovely little app too.
BoyleSports is a very typical online bookie, aesthetically speaking. Once you land on the site you’ll know exactly what I mean. Everything that you see on the screen is like you’ve seen elsewhere, there’s nothing particularly different or exciting about it, just a standard online bookie.
But once you dig a little bit deeper you realise that BoyleSports is a bit better than “a standard online bookie”. That’s because what they offer in terms of extra features is fantastic, and though you probably come to expect that from a big sportsbook brand in this day and age, it doesn’t make it any less impressive.
But it’s not just the extra features, there’s also a pretty decent bonus on offer too (when you get your head around just how it works), plus 24/7 customer support, a whole host of payment methods, no maximum withdrawal limit, and over 30 sports to bet on! Excellent work all round!
