Betfair Sports Review

Review last updated on July 23, 2018

Betfair Sports emerged as an exciting new entrant to the marketplace in May 1999. After launching as an online betting exchange, Betfair has since diversified to open a highly diverse sportsbook and other gambling services. Notably, Betfair is accessible to Irish players, with the online sports book holding a Malta Gaming Authority licence.


The main Betfair site has been designed to be responsive across desktop, smartphone, and tablet devices that can run HTML5 web browsers. These include the likes of Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, with other less-known browsers being compatible.

Betfair also provides mobile sports betting apps that can be downloaded over a selection of popular smartphones and tablets. The Betfair Android app is arguably the more utilised, what with the huge install base of the operating system. Alternatively, there is a Betfair iOS app that can be installed to iPhones or iPads directly from the App Store.


There is a vast selection of sports from all corners of the world. The more traditional sports include football, horse racing, boxing, tennis, darts, golf, cricket, cycling, motor racing, rugby, and snooker. Betfair then provides an incredible selection of betting markets within each match.

Ireland players should also take note of the fine selection of Gaelic games covered. Betfair can take care of all their Gaelic betting needs, with several major competitions provided for Gaelic football and hurling. Markets can include match odds, handicap betting, alternative handicaps, draw no bet, double results, goal scorers, and plenty of others.

Betfair also does a tremendous job of covering sports that are popular in other parts of the world. For instance, American football, ice hockey, basketball, and baseball are all available from the US. Then there are the likes of Australian rules, handball, table tennis, volleyball, and chess, with eSports even rising to prominence at Betfair.


The in-play betting markets are easily found from the navigation menu. Users can access the tab to find all of the upcoming sporting events. For the most part, these are focused on football, tennis, basketball, gold, and cricket, but can change depending on major events taking place.

All of the matches will be displayed by their odds, covering which team or competitor will win, with the odds of a draw then provided where appropriate. Many more markets can be found for each individual match by entering it directly.


The minimum deposit amounts vary at Betfair, so make sure to check the value highlighted at the time of transferring funds. MasterCard, Maestro, VISA, VISA Debit, and VISA Electron can typically be used for smaller deposits, as can PayPal or paysafecard. Meanwhile, there are usually larger thresholds to be met when using NETELLER, Skrill, and bank transfers.


The terms and conditions are filled with security information. For starters, Betfair has installed 128-bit encryption technology that is capable of preventing information from being intercepted. Betfair also uses a two-step authentication process for added security. In addition, the sportsbook has been independently certified to achieve ISO27001 compliance.


The Betfair help centre can be reached from the My Account section. Arrival to this area shall provide the option of entering into live chat or a telephone conversation, with typical response times promised at 30 seconds. Betfair also runs social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter, with various commonly asked questions also provided in the help centre.
