BoyleSports is a menu driven website, everything is supremely organised, it does come across as cluttered through. However, it is easy to navigate and you rarely have to use the actual sportsbook menu because everything you need is available from either the landing page or quick links.
BoyleSports is heavy on football and horseracing, but it has alternative markets. Financials and lotteries are available as well as casino and virtual sections. So, all in all BoyleSports is a well-rounded site in a cut-throat market. Making it clear why they have been crowned Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker. Not only do they have a large online and sponsoring presence they also have 250 retail branches located throughout Ireland.

Other BoyleSports Promotions
BoyleSports offers a great range of promotions for existing and new customers. From extra places in horseracing to double winnings with the PDC World Championships and NFL matches.
BoyleSports Sports Market
BoyleSports are good at what they do. When you start comparing odds around, they come out strong against major players in the industry. Their betting margins really stand out, as they are some of the lowest around. In terms of markets, they offer everything you would expect to find in online betting sites nowadays. From the big American football markets, horseracing, golf, tennis, cricket, table-tennis to boxing and everything in between. The market depth with each sport is brilliant and truly makes BoyleSports stand above the rest.
They have a great feature – ‘King of the Weekend’ This is available through the app. It’s a free & quick entry for a shot at winning a jackpot prize. Choose the outcome for 7 pre-selected football matches and if you get them ALL correct you win big.
BoyleSports’s News and Tips
BoyleSports offers comprehensive news updates across all markets and sports. It boasts articles from industry leaders and high calibre sports reporters. It literally covers everything from Holly Willoughby’s return to TV show I’m A Celebrity to Kevin Kilbane’s champions league tips. You won’t be disappointed or lack reading material.
In terms of stats, I’ve seen better. But it’s the basic information you need to make an informed bet. And the stats are available throughout their website. I was unable to find stats on upcoming games, seems as though the stats are only available for in-play games. It was a little disappointing for such a major player like BoyleSports to not go really in depth with the stats. They also don’t have live streaming available, again slightly disappointing from what could be an industry leader.
In-Play Betting at BoyleSports
At first glance the live betting appears cluttered, however you can filter / close the sports that you’re not interested in and declutter the screen. Whilst keeping those sports and markets that interest you visible for quick betting and stat checking.
You can see the open markets for each event and by clicking on them it will give you a full range of betting markets for that specific event, coupled with the scores and graphics showing a representation of the action.
Virtual Sports at BoyleSports
For Virutal Sports fans, BoyleSports has got a good selection, not the most comprehensive I’ve seen but they have Football, The Grand National and Greyhounds featured on the Virtuals Tab. You can watch the games or races through this tab as well. The odds are a stand out as with all BoyleSports other odds throughout their markets.
It’s clear when you go onto the website that BoyleSports flag-ship is their sportsbook, however they are a fairly big player in terms of their casino game selection. They use providers like; Finsoft, IGT, NetEnt and Playtech. BoyleSports selective choice of market leaders really does ensure quality to their casino.
They might be sports heavy but they are taking Casino games seriously. They have more Casino tabs on their landing page than they do Sports Tabs, but it makes it easier to navigate as the categories are laid out plainly, example: Vegas, Games, Casino, Lotto, Bingo & Poker. So there is a lot of choice for punters who prefer Casino games to sports betting.
BoyleSports Sportsbook Mobile App
BoyleSports Mobile App is a top-rated app in both Android & Apple App Stores. And it’s clear to see why, they offer exclusive enhanced prices through their app and access to EVERY UK/Irish race. The mobile site is again impeccable. It’s clean, concise and overall isn’t as cluttered as the PC website.
There’s links to the different casino markets through the menu, which is well-laid out and user-friendly. You can download the app from either the App Store of your choosing or through the mobile site. Which is handy if you don’t want to log-in every time you use your mobile to place bets with BoyleSports.

When you weigh up the features and functionality of the sportsbook and the bet slips. It works, it’s busy and somewhat cluttered but it all works. BoyleSports seems to go from strength to strength and is a standout innovator in the industry.
While there are other companies that are offering live streaming and better stats, BoyleSports is taking a customer approach to online betting and gaming. They are listening, to the good and the bad and making sure that their customers know that they are valued. You won’t find a better support team than the one BoyleSports boasts.
They are sports heavy, particularly racing and football, which is indicative of the Irish market. However they are becoming more and more well known for Casino Gaming and other international markets. Their mobile app is a top-rated app, which is a testament to their dedication to the industry. They are front-runners and as long as they continue down the same track they will continue to be so for a long time.
