Betfair Sportsbook Review Summary

Similar to our other Bookmaker reviews, when we performed our Betfair review, we looked at 5 main factors which are essential to every online bookie; New Account Offer, Site Design, Live Streaming, Withdrawal Speed, Customer Service.

To be honest it took us a few years to get used to Betfair offering a regular Sportsbook alongside it’s Exchange product. However, it has improved drastically in the past 18 months or so.

The Sportsbook product offering has increased, the actual website layout is more visually appealing than the majority of the best and well-known bookmakers (Bet365 for example) and they have lots of deposit and withdrawal options.

We used to wonder why would you need a Betfair Sportsbook account as well as a Betfair Exchange account, but the answer is resoundingly simple. If you are backing a horse under 10/1, it makes more sense to back with a sportsbook that offers B.O.G then bet on the exchange.

It is only on horses greater than 10/1 that it makes more financial sense to bet on the exchange as the discrepancies in prices between the Sportsbook and the exchange is noticeably higher at that end of the odds line.

Betfair sportsbook now has one of the best mobile betting products in 2018 and we recommend checking it out.

Betfair Sportsbook  New Account Offer

Betfair Sportsbook has really upped their game lately with regards to their new account offer. You can, in fact, choose from two different offers! From what we gather, there are the only bookmaker currently doing this.

Betfair Sportsbook New Account Offer 1 is £100 in free bets for UK and Irish Customers.

New customer offer. Place 5 x £/€10 or more bets to receive €20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. T&Cs apply.

This offer is paid in 5 installments of £/€20 free bets. Therefore there is no wagering requirement with regards to the free bets. However to fully claim the offer you have to place at least 25 bets of £/€10. That’s a minimum of £/€250 in bets to claim the £/€100 in free bets.

Betfair Sportsbook Live Steaming Review

To watch live coverage of events on Betfair Sportsbook, you must bet at least £/€0.50 on the event. The stream will then start shortly before the event commences. Due to the sports bodies charging so much money for image rights in this day and age, the bookmakers have, unfortunately, ly pass on some of the cost to their customers. This is the same for ever bookmaker and not just applies to Betfair sportsbook.

betfair sportsbook live streaming review

Betfair sportsbook live streaming covers horse racing from around the word, football from the main leagues in Spain, Italy and Germany and tennis from all the big name competitions.

You can also enjoy live greyhound racing, volleyball, cricket, rugby leagues and handball on the Betfair Sportsbook live streaming facility.

Betfair Sportsbook Site Design Review

We here at Everytip love the Betfair sportsbook site design. It is ahead of Bet365 for sure and miles better than Betfred.

Betfair Sportsbook Site Design Review

Even though they do not offer as many horse racing markets as RaceBets, their horse racing section is very well thought out and very user-friendly. We have also noticed that they have increased their horse racing coverage so it is now second to RaceBets for horse racing coverage. The main plus point compared to RaceBets is the live streaming of UK/Irish races on Betfair sportsbook.

football betting at betfair sportsbook review

The most popular markets on Betfair Sportsbook is football (soccer for any Americans reading this!). Again the layout is super intuitive and easy to the eye.

Betfair Sportsbook Withdrawal Speed

This is what is stated on Betfair help section regarding withdrawal times. It is surprising to me that they state 2 working days for a debit or credit card but only 1 working day for a bank transfer. Usually, with most bookmakers it is the other way around!

Betfair Sportsbook Customer Service Review

The team at Everytip have multiple experiences with Betfair Sportsbook customer support and all positive you would be glad to hear. Not only that but they are the ONLY bookmaker that has ever reached out to us via phone to ask how we can make the experience at Betfair better. It’s a nice touch to have a civil conversation with an employee of a bookie for a change and not the other way around!
