Boylesports was founded in 1989 in Ireland and has grown to be the largest bookmaker in Ireland. They have 205 retail locations along with telephone, internet and mobile betting services. Chances are you have seen their TV ads or sponsorship as they are the official Gambling partner of English Premier League team Sunderland AFC. They were also prominently featured in the news in 2011 when they took over 32 rival retail betting shops saving over 160 jobs in the process.
As with most large, well-known gambling houses, Boylesports offers a huge variety of different markets to wager on such as football, basketball, greyhounds, horse racing, hockey, rugby, tennis and more. All of these markets are clearly displayed using a crisp, simple white, grey and blue colour scheme. Although far from cutting-edge, the layout is very functional and easy to navigate. All the different sports are listed on the left side of the screen in alphabetical order. Once you select the sport and game you wish to bet on you are taken to a huge list of proposition bets that can be made in addition to the standard money line and handicap. Although the variety of bets covered here is impressive there is a lot of clicking involved and the load times are a bit slow. Rather than a smooth transition that many of the top competitors feature, here the page actually freezes and reloads. Although this is not a major issue we still expect smoother transitions from such a well-known sportsbook name.
Boylesports also features a live-betting system that frankly left us a bit disappointed. Live streams were only available for horse racing and there was very limited information available on the event being held – just the score and time! If you are using another platform to watch the game and just need a site to place bets this shouldn’t be too much of an issue for you but it seems as though they just added the feature to the site to keep up with the industry trend rather than actually put a solid effort into turning it into a solid product.
The site does not particularly excel in any one category – odds, live play and design are all average. To make matters worse the two-part new user bonus is confusing and not up to par with what comparable sites are offering. Only punters looking for a safe, secure, no-frills platform to place their bets may find Boylesports suitable for their needs.Click Here To Claim Your Free Bet
