Review of Boylesports Markets
Boylesports, although based in the Isle of Man, is actually Ireland’s second largest bookmaker (behind Paddy Power); therefore they are well positioned to offer a large variety of different sports to be bet on, although there are other sites with greater diversity. The sports that are featured on Boylesports are:
American football, Australian rules, baseball, basketball, boxing, bowls, cricket, cycling, darts, football, GAA football, GAA hurling, golf, greyhounds, horse racing, handball, ice hockey, motorsport, pool, rugby league, rugby union, snooker, tennis and MMA. They also offer various specials on such things as reality television and awards ceremonies, like the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
The layout of the site is such that it is easy to navigate around and find more detailed information on each of the individual sporting events, whether this is a horse race, a lower league football match or an ice hockey match being played thousands of miles from the United Kingdom. The fact that the site is so easy to navigate around ensures that you will never become frustrated when trying to place a bet on anything and you’ll always be able to find the bet you want to place with ease.
In-Play at Boylesports
Like all other major online bookmakers, Boylesports operates a service whereby people can bet on different sporting events as they are being held. This means that it is possible to place bets on such things as the time of the next goal in a football match or on the next player to score a basket in a game of basketball. The odds given for these occurrences are constantly changing, so the website is quick to update to ensure that you always get fair odds.
Live betting at Boylesports can be found using the ‘In-plaY’ in the top nav bar next to the ‘Sports’ tab – it’s also in the second spot in the left hand menu. Here you’ll be taken to all the events they offer live odds on, clicking an event opens all the markets available in the main content area. On the right hand side of the screen you’ll see a live scores type widget which keeps you up to date with the score and below you’ll see match odds.
Unfortunately we’ve had to mark Boylesports down here because simply showing the score isn’t enough. From them to keep up with the likes of Bet365 (who have the best live betting around) they need to add much more comprehensive game stats. They also need to offer live streaming on more than just horse racing which is all they’ve got right now.

Boylesports Review – 3.5/5 Explained
This Boylesports review is similar to all the other reviews we’ve got listed on our site in that at the top of the page you’ll see a grade. Boylesports have achieved a 3.5 star grade in our ranking system – let us explain why it’s not a higher.
First and foremost we don’t like the fact that users who deposit using Neteller and Moneybookers can’t claim the bonus on offer. Just because you prefer to use a certain deposit option shouldn’t rule you out of the reward for joining up with an online bookmaker. It’s also only available to those in the UK and Ireland which excludes the rest of Europe.
We also don’t really like the two stages of the bonus. It’s one of the worst offers out there and we’ve actually only scored it with a 1 star in our reviews section which is very disappointing – the lowest score of all the bonuses we review.
Secondly no live streaming is offered, other than horse racing, by Boylesports and whilst this isn’t necessary to get a higher grade it’s still a negative point. Their live is pretty good but would be so much better if live streaming was included and they need to add extra in-play stats to get a higher mark.
There’s no doubt that Boylesports are offering a good service to all their punters and your money is safe with them. They’ll payout on all winning wagers and withdrawals are processed in a timely manner. However there are better options out there and we encourage you to check out our bookmakers review section before you open a Boylesports account to make sure there’s not a better fit for you.
