What I can say about BoyleSport, great UK bookmaker. Great sign up offer for Sports and Casino
  • Boylesports offers a minimum deposit of £5 which is very different from many other online sports betting sites which require a minimum deposit of £10.
  • Ever wanted to see which channel your favorite match or sport is on. Just pop onto Boylesports and check out the live betting diary.
  • Another great tool that Boylesports provide is a bet calculator so you work out your combo winnings in a flash.
  • The help centre is not very well set up from an aesthetic (looks) view and looks very outdated compared to the rest of the site. It is also not easy to find, being a grey link on a dark background in the top right hand corner of the site.

frequently asked questions

What is an Ante Post bet?

Ante-Post is a bet that is placed on future sporting events. In return for the chance of better odds, an ante post price means you will lose your money if your selection does not take part in the event.

If you have a real cash balance and a free bet balance, you can withdraw your real cash balance at any time without affecting your bonus balance. Please note that free bet balances cannot be withdrawn as this is a virtual balance.

What is the bookings index in football and how does it work?

The bookings index works by adding the points per card issued within 90 minutes: Yellow card is 10 points, Red card is 25 points, and a maximum of 35 points can be awarded per player. Typical starting values might be; under 26 points, between 26 and 46 points and over 46 points. These values may fluctuate as the match progresses.

How does "Draw No Bet" work on football matches?

A set of odds betting without the draw are quoted. Should a match end in a draw after 90 minutes playing time, stakes will be returned. This bet can only be won if you forecast the home or away team winning. Draw No Bet acts as a type of insurance.

How easy to the eye is the BoyleSports website?

When you hit the home page at Boylesports you are presented with a lot of information on one screen and it is the type of interface that would take a lot of getting used to in our opinion.

You have the traditional sports betting menu on the left, but unlike many sportsbooks that have a 3 column layout, Boylesports has a 4 column layout and this in itself makes the content smaller (more difficult to read) and it is not intuitive. This interface is quite new and looks like a step back rather than a step forward.

For experienced punters it will not be a huge problem but for newcomers it will seem daunting at first.

The colour scheme still uses the same dark blue, lighter blue, red and dark grey which actually works really nicely. With so many columns it can be confusing with the navigation. Having said that, you have a main products menu at the top and the left side menu which contains all of your sports and markets. So it is not too difficult to find what you are looking for.

We mentioed the main page is split into four columns and these include:

– Sports menu on the left
– Main sports odds section in the second column
– Live and In-play events
– Bet slip and offers on the right

As we said it will be confusing at first until you have had a chance to play with it a little.

The speed of the site is good as you would expect from one of the leading bookmakers.

Does BoyleSports offer competitive odds or the best odds in a certain sport?

An overall betting margin across sports of 4.255 tells you that Boylesports is inded one of the most competitive when it comes to odds offerings.

Where they are great at 3.1% on tennis, they lag pretty far behind in terms of value for football punters with a relatively high margin of 6%.

American sports feature heavily in their sports offer and basketball at 4.1% and baseball at 3.5% are very competitive with American Football running at a margin of 4.55 which is a little higher than many of their competitors.

How good is the market coverage and selection of bets on BoyleSports?

In tersm of types of bets then Boylesports offer a wide range of bet types, however their market coverage is not as high as other sites with many major football matches having between 60-80 markets. This is weak when we look at some competitors like William Hill and coral who are regularly trading more than 200 markets on a single premier league game.

In terms of bet types they offer a wide range and if you visit the site and click on the help link in the top menu you can see under sports betting they have clear explanations of all of the different bets and how they work. They even have an extensive glossary so you can find any topic related to types of bets and any words you might not understand.

How good is In Play betting on BoyleSports?

The inplay interface in the third column on the home page is not really clear and easy to understand. But if you click In-play from the top or left side menu then you have a seperate In-play page open up with just three columns.

The first column shows all sports that are LIVE now and you can view these by opening and closing a dropdown arrow. The second column features the events that are coming up and the third column has your bet slip and any current promotional offers.

This interface is easy for anybody to use and is very clear in terms of layout and navigation.

What selection of bonuses and re-occuring promotions does BoyleSports have?

Boylesports are renowned for offering a wide range of promotions and when we visited the site to undertake our review their were leven different promotions (please visit regularly to see updates)

All sports are covered and promotions include:

Best odds guaranteed
Double winnings
Price boosts
Enhanced place terms
Acca insurance

They also have an acca loyalty club where you can pick up a range of free bets.

How easy is it to deposit and withdraw funds with an BoyleSports account?

With Boylesports you are spoilt for choice when it comes to deposit and withdrawal options.

Of course they accept the main debit and credit cards like VISA, Mastercard and Maestro. They also accept a wide range of e-wallets including Skrill, Neteller and Paypal.

Also available are other electronic payment methods like paysafecard, Euteller and giropay. And of course SOFORT and standard bank transfers. The options are wide and payments are processed using full 256 bit encryption technology so you know your data is safe.

How friendly and fast is the BoyleSports customer service and live chat service?

Excellent support when we contacted with our query for a requestabet question. The operator was very knowledgeable and the query was resolved in less than one minute which is very impressive. A further request was made which we knew would be difficult and the agent passed this on and then we received a full response via email.

Boylesports betting experience

Odds format & betting margin

Fractional, Decimal and American. Fractional odds are exactly as its says on the tin…..a fraction. So lets take a price which is odds on, which might be 1/4 or one quarter. So If you put a bet on of 1 pound, you will receive back your one pound stake plus one fourth, so a total of £1.25. Decimal odds are quite straightforward to understand, as all you need to do is take the decimal number, lets say 34.0 and deduct 1 which would give you odds of 33/1. When we talk about American odds. it can be a little more difficult to understand, buts lets try and simplify it for you. All bets are classed as a return to 100 points so American Odds of 2000 would equate to 3.0 in decimal and 2/1 in fractional terms.

Betting limits

At Boylesports there are certain betting limits in place. The minimum deposit amount is £5 The minimum withdrawal is £10 In terms of deposit limits, they allow you to limit the amount of money you can deposit into your account on either a daily, weekly or monthly basis like a number of other bookmakers.
