Greyhound Bookmaker Reviews

There are loads of different bookmakers for greyhound betting but which of them are the very best? That obviously depends on exactly what you are looking for as a punter, but we believe that the following trio are hard to beat.

#1 for Greyhounds – BetVictor

BetvictorA traditional and well-established bookmaker, Betvictor have their customers well covered when it comes to betting on the dogs.

The company price up big races like the Greyhound Derby and the St Leger well in advance, whilst also allowing punters to bet on regular meetings from around the UK on a daily basis. As and when no such meetings are available, or even if they are, Betvictor customers also have the option of betting on the many virtual greyhound races which the company run around the clock.

For all of those UK and Irish races which Betvictor feature, there is also a handy live streaming service provided to punters. Offering a stream of each race as it happens, punters are able to watch them as long as they have simply placed a bet worth a minimum of either £1 or €1 on the race in question.

To cap off what is an undoubtedly excellent overall greyhound bookmakers service, users of the Betvictor website can also quickly and easily access a comprehensive selection of race results and claim one of the best bonuses around…

#2 For Greyhound Racing – Betfred

BetfredA bookmaker that excels in many areas, Betfred is also a great option for greyhound racing. They excel, after all, in terms of the number of betting options provided, the number and quality of greyhound racing related promotions and the number of additional benefits.

Pretty much every race from all the possible venues around the UK and Ireland are priced up by Betfred and, as an added bonus, the bookmaker also offer a wide range of Australian races to bet on. If the real thing doesn’t float your boat, what’s more, Betfred also provide a comprehensive selection of virtual races to pop a wager on and these races continue through the day and night.

Real greyhound races taking place in the UK and Ireland are all subject to beneficial bets odds guaranteed terms through Betfred and the bookmaker also offer a further promotion, to boot. That is that for races shown live on Sky TV, punters will be credited a free bet matched to their stake if they back a winner at 2/1 or longer.

It doesn’t matter if greyhound racing isn’t on mainstream TV, either, as Betfred offer their own live streaming service. In order to watch any race from the UK or Ireland, all a gambler has to do is to place a bet worth at least £1 on the race, whilst live audio commentary for BAGS races is available to all, regardless of whether they have bet or not. Geo restrictions apply.

William Hill offer a peerless selection of races from the UK that punters can bet on, and also price up some of the biggest greyhound races from elsewhere in the world.

Greyhound Betting FAQ

Greyhound racing by its very nature is a pretty simple sport to bet on, but there are a handful of bet types beyond the straightforward race winner market which some punters may not know about. We’ve endeavoured to explain these as simply as possible below.

Forecasts – A forecast bet for any greyhound race is where a punter not only selects the winner but also bets on which trap will come in second to it. Straight forecasts are bets placed on one particular dog to win and another to come second, whilst reverse forecasts pay out if the two chosen traps finish in the top two, regardless of their finishing order.

Tricasts – Following the same principals as forecasts, tricast bets differ only in that they ask a punter to select the first three in a race rather than just the first two. That makes them more difficult to land than forecasts but does mean they generally also boast longer odds.

Winning Distance – Whilst not as widely available for greyhound races as it is for horse races, it is still also possible to sometimes bet on the distance you believe a chosen dog will win its race by. This is a popular bet for those races where it seems obvious that a really short priced favourite is going to win.
