Sports & Betting Markets

Despite being a relatively new bookmaker, Virgin Bet offer betting across an impressive range of sports. There are over 30 sports to choose from with all of the main ones covered and more.

As you’d expect, sports such as football, tennis, rugby, golf, basketball, cricket and darts all feature on VirginBet as well as some which you may have never considered betting on such as bandy, floorball, table tennis and futsal.

A full list of available sports can be seen below.

  • American Football
  • Aussie Rules
  • Badminton
  • Bandy

  • Politics
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker
  • Pool
  • Speedway
  • Table tennis
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Winter sports

The number of markets available to bet on is also impressive. For football matches taking place in popular leagues such as the Premier League and La Liga, you can expect around 150 different markets which gives customers an excellent choice. As well as common markets such as the match winner, HT/FT, goalscorer and BTTS markets, you can also bet on Asian Handicap fouls, Asian Handicap offsides, Over/Under shots on target and many more.

We compared the odds at VirginBet to those at more established bookmakers and found them to be excellent. In many cases, especially for popular football matches, we found VirginBet offering better odds on popular markets such as the match winner. Odds were also very competitive for other sports such as horse racing and tennis.

Horse Racing

There is a great range of horse races to bet on at Virgin Bet with races from the UK, Ireland, France, South Africa and the United States all covered. Customers can also watch live racing from the UK, Ireland, US, France and South Africa by simply placing a £1 bet (or 50p each way) on the race they wish to stream.

Price boosts are available regularly on horse racing as is Best Odds Guaranteed which applies to all UK & Irish races. You’ll also find a number of other racing offers available such as Extra Places and Money Back Specials during major racing events such as Cheltenham, Royal Ascot and the Grand National.

In-Play Betting

In-play events which are available to bet on at VirginBet can be viewed by clicking on the ‘In-play’ link in the sidebar if using the website or via the icon if using the Virgin Bet app.

VirginBet was originally launched as an app-only bookmaker meaning that customers had to use the app to place bets. However, a web version has been launched now although we found the app to be more useful. For example, using the desktop website, there is no categorisation of in-play events meaning that it can be difficult to find the event you’re looking for during busy times. However, using the VirginBet app, all in-play events are categorised by sport making things a lot easier.

As with pre-match markets, there are a good number of in-play markets to bet on at Virgin Bet. In-play odds are also competitive and we were more than happy with the in-play events which we compared.

A live visual is displayed for the majority of in-play events which shows what is happening in the game. For football matches, this will show when a team is taking a corner, is making a substitution, when a foul has been committed and more. It can be an extremely helpful tool for when a live stream of the event is not available.

Live Streaming

Live streaming is available through both the VirginBet website and mobile app and for a variety of sports such as tennis, football, snooker, horse racing and more. For all sports other than horse racing, customers simply need to have a positive account balance in order to view the stream. If you wish to watch a live horse race, you must have placed a bet of at least £1 (or 50 each way) on the race which you wish to watch. Live horse racing streams are available for all UK & Irish horse races at Virgin Bet.

Customer Service

Customers can contact the support team either by email, telephone or live chat. Live chat is only available via the VirginBet app and not currently via the desktop website which is another reason to download it.

Upon testing, we were connected to a live chat agent almost immediately who was able to deal with our query quickly and professionally. We also emailed the support team who replied within 12 hours.

See the sidebar on this page for all Virgin Bet contact methods.

Virgin Bet App

Virgin Bet launched as a mobile betting app which meant that it had to be flawless given that it was the only option to place your bets. Thankfully, the app is great and although there is now the option to place bets on the VirginBet website, we fully recommend using the app.

The VirginBet app is extremely quick with pages loading almost instantly. The app has a very simplistic look to it which may help with the speed but it is also clean and attractive.

Various sections of the VirginBet sportsbook can be accessed via the icons in the sticky menu and there are ‘Quick Link’ icons across the top of the screen to get you to where you need to be fast.

Overall, the app is one of the best betting apps available and a must for anyone with a VirginBet account.

The Website

As mentioned above, Virgin Bet started off as a betting app and so the primary focus perhaps shouldn’t be on the website. However, as betting through the desktop site is now an option, it makes sense to take a look around.

The desktop site has the same theme as the app with a minimalistic, clean design of a simple white background and red, VirginBet colour, highlights. Navigation around the site is made easy by the long list of sports in the sidebar along with quick links to various sections such as promotions, in-play markets and the VirginBet Casino. Just like with the VirginBet app, the website is extremely fast meaning that even users with a slow internet connection should be able to use the site without any lagging.

Online Casino

Customers at Virgin Bet have access to an online casino which is connected to their sports betting account. This is separate from Virgin Games and solely for VirginBet users.

There isn’t a huge number of games available in the casino with just over 100 available. The vast majority of these games are online slots but there are just under 10 table games also such as Blackjack, Roulette, Three-Card Poker and Hi-Lo.

For those who prefer a more real-life casino experience, the online casino also hosts 9 different live casino games. There are various Blackjack and Roulette tables as well as Baccarat, Lightning Roulette and Three Card Poker.

Customers can use the balance in their sportsbook account to play at the casino without the need to transfer any funds.

Banking

Unfortunately, Virgin Bet doesn’t excel in offering an extensive range of banking methods which may put some people off. However, deposits and withdrawals can be made via Visa, Mastercard and PayPal which should satisfy the majority of users.

See the table below for a full list of available banking options.

Method Min Deposit Withdrawal Time
Visa £5 2-7 Days
Mastercard £5 2-7 Days
PayPal £5 Up to 24 Hours

Account Settings

There are a number of account settings available to Virgin Bet customers which allows them to personalise their account. The majority of these settings can be accessed by clicking on the settings icon.

Odds Format: Currently, odds across the VirginBet website and app can be displayed in either decimal or fractional formats.

In-Play Timeframe: Users can select timeframes for events to be displayed in the in-play selection. The options are 4 hours, 2 hours, 30 mins or live. If, for example, 4 hours is selected, the in-play section will display live events along with events starting within the next 4 hours.

Bet Slip Odds Changes: Users can select whether to automatically accept odds changes once a selection has been added to their bet slip or only accept if the odds have increased.

Responsible Gambling: The link to the VirginBet responsible gambling section can be found at the footer of the website or in the menu of the mobile app.

Deposit Limits: Set a daily, weekly or monthly limit on how much you can deposit into your VirginBet account.

Time Out: Opt to take a break from betting for between 24 hours and 6 weeks. You will not be able to access your account during this period once set.

Self-Exclusion: If you wish to take a longer break, you can activate a self-exclusion which will block you from your account for between 6 months and 5 years. Permanent account closures are also possible.

Reality Checks: Set a period of time which when reached, you will receive a pop-up notification.

Summary

Despite being a relatively new bookmaker, VirginBet has done extremely well. The brand’s main strength is the excellent mobile app which is fast and very easy to use. We were impressed with the number of sports and markets available at VirginBet along with the odds on offer which were often better than more established bookies.
