Read our expert review of Boylesports and the assessment of Boylesports in all key aspects of online bookmakers
that are essential for a modern, professional and sound online football betting bookmaker.
That includes betting markets offered, odds, their website, in-play (live) betting opportunities, quality of
customer service and promotions.
Boylesports have a pretty strong history in the industry and they were formed back in 1989 and they remain an independent bookmaker. They are actually the biggest one in operation in Ireland. They are a very popular brand because they do put a lot back into sport through sponsor, particularly of horse racing and greyhounds racing. They maintain both a very strong high street presence and have grown an equally strong online presence as well.
Boylesports Review & Ratings
The odds at Boylesports we found to be pretty good actually. Some of the margins like tennis you find really low margins on, but the football one we did find was a little at the higher end of things, not higher than any other major established operator. But the margins are important because the lower they are the more value the punter is getting for their money at the end of the day. They do actually stack up well when you're just doing direct odds comparison with other bookmakers, they are usually at the better end of things, so that balances things out nicely. Basically they are strong enough so that you aren’t going to feel like you are losing out through them at all.

The market coverage at Boylesports is nice and strong as you would expect from a strong independent bookmaker. The major markets we noticed are covered very well and while there are markets open for some of the more niche betting sports they aren’t as heavily backed through market variety as the main staples. When we looked around at individual sporting events we did find a lot of variety running, there was plenty of different markets open on any given football or tennis match that we looked at, no matter how obscure those matches appeared to be. So that was a nice touch. The North American markets have a good presence and there is greyhound and horse racing as well to get your teeth into.

The Boylesports website is all right design wise we would say. It’s not one of the best around that’s for sure but it’s not the worst, so we would say it nestles in the bracket of being ok. There can appear to be a lot going at the website, which some may like, other may not so much. However, busy it can appear to be there is a sense of organization and you never seem to get lost in what you are actually looking for, so they have gotten something right in that department. The website is quick to load and refresh and there are great features on there like virtuals, and stacks of data being pulled in from the likes of the Racing Post. We did find a very comprehensive horse racing section on the site and the sportsbook is basic and operational but most of everything that you will need will be found on the home page.

In-Play Betting at Boylesports
There is really good in play betting available at Boylesports and if only they would add live streams it would be even better. This is one of the better in-play betting experiences that we came across and again, in keeping with the general feel of the website, it can be a little bit crowded, but there are filters that you can use to eliminate some sports on there to help you out. We were impressed by the amount of stats that were available on all of the live markets that we looked at, everything being accessible by a single click. You can switch between the overview page and an actual event, and clicking on match will give you a fantastic graphical picture of the flow of the match. Great prices, quick to operate, it’s very good.

Boylesports Free Bets & Promotions
Overall you are going to find a lot of promotions at Boylesports and they are usually unique ones and they offer a lot of value. They like to offer free bet refunds on a host of sporting events, so if there is a big game coming up or a big tournament, they will usually be giving something away, like the crossbar challenge promotion on Premier League football where they refunded lost stakes if the crossbar was struck in the game. Overall, they are really strong in the promotional side of things.
