Betfair Sports Review

Review last updated on January 10, 2017

BetFair is a great name in the online gambling word, and rightly so. The site hosts any form of betting, wagering, or gambling that you could possibly want, and has earned a reputation for fairness and honesty.

For sports fans, BetFair Sports is paradise online. A centerpiece of the BetFair site, you can use it to place bets on any game, at any time, in any sport you choose. BetFair is a UK site, so the menus and ads are geared toward the UK and European markets, but they're not limited to Europe. You can fine American football, Aussie rules football, the CFL, and in fact, pretty much every sport under the sun, all in a well organized, menu-driven navigation format.

The sheer volume of sports, however, brings up BetFair Sports' one major flaw: the site just presents too much information. It's hard to take it all in. A good search feature ameliorates the problem, however, as does well-conceived navigation menu on the site.

The bottom line on BetFair Sports: if you want to bet on sports, this is the place to go. No matter what the game, you can find it here. You can bet on individual games, individual player's performances, league results; pretty much any permutation that interests you. Combine this with BetFair's reputation for honesty and openness, and it's an unbeatable combination in the world sports betting.

Extras

Extras at Betfair Sportsbook include: DemoBet, Bet-in-Play, Lay-a-Bet (wagers against outcomes occurring), FAQ, Live Video with over 2000 matches per annum in multiple categories, Betfair Mobile (Sportsbetting in your pocket) and of course the Betfair Forum (Stay abreast of developments).

Promotions

Betfair Sports does not offer a whole lot in the form of bonus offers to its punters. But what it does provide is on par with the very best of the sportsbetting industry. There are free cash sign-up bets to all punters. And once you're a registered punter with a real-money account at the Betfair Sportsbook, there are several other exciting offers up for grabs. Note that the Betfair Sportsbook is part of the Betfair group which does offer a cross-gaming platform to all registered players - 1 account for the full spectrum of bets. These include the following:

  • Earn free bets by punting on FIFA 2010 outright markets like winners/group winners/goal scorers and more
  • FIFA World Cup 2010 promotional offers
  • Refer and earn generous wads of cash
  • 25% discount on Royal Ascot tickets
  • Big Tradefair credit amounts

Software Features & Graphics

Betfair Sportsbook makes use of proprietary software for its punters. This is of the highest class and works by providing an easy-to-use platform for all forms of sports betting. This is no mean feat: there are live-scores, updates, stats, in-time-bets, tutorials and many more interactive elements to consider. Betfair Sports succeeds in a big way with the full spectrum of feature-rich options for its players. Arguably the best part of the Betfair Sports software lies with its online tour functionality. This is a boon to players and it provides an easy-to-understand gaming solution to all sportsbetting questions. Betfair Sports will quite literally walk you through the process of signing up, punting and getting it together. And if you're not interested in it, simply click to close.

Loyalty Points and VIP Clubs

On the VIP Club and Loyalty Points front Betfair Sportsbook is a little anaemic. There is however a refer-a-friend program that rewards players for arranging new sign-ups. It's the Betfair Casino and Betfair Poker clubs that go a whole lot further for loyal customers. But make no mistake: Betfair Sports prides itself on its loyal customers. And it does everything possible to provide for a safe, secure and responsible gaming environment featuring the latest technology. The proof of this pudding lies in its tasting and with over 1 million punters - Betfair must be doing something right.

Sports

Betfair is big on sports - so big in fact that this list has been significantly trimmed to accommodate a healthy sampling of product offerings. These include: football, football-fixtures, horse racing, horse racing today's card, basketball, cricket, gold, ice hockey, greyhound racing, greyhound today's card, motor sport, rugby union, tennis, all sports, American football, cycling, darts, fishing, Gaelic Games, handball, netball, financials, politics, rugby union and snooker

Live Bets

Betfair Sports goes the full hog in providing live bets to its valued punters. To this end they have opted for the ever popular feature called Bet-in-play. This allows for a fantastic variety of high-quality sporting events to be wagered on - in real time. And with ever-changing odds and a full quota of live updates to keep players abreast of developments - this is the clincher.

Customer Service & Support

Customers have responded favorably to Betfair Sportsbook. In addition to being able to receive fast and reliable service from well-trained agents, are many open communication channels to choose from. These include quick and pleasing responses in live-chat options, email, phone/fax services and the like. In addition to transparency across the full betting platform is a dazzling variety of languages too. The betting help is available 24/7 and there are some 10+ languages to choose from.
