HANDS up if you thought Paddy Power was Ireland's largest independent bookmaker… Me too. But actually it's Boylesports. Founded in 1989 by John Boyle, Boylesports now has over 200 stores in Ireland and is one of the leading sportsbooks on the Internet.
Having made a slow start to online gaming the firm has got their act together and their site is now slick and easy to use. They've a host of offers available for new existing customers and here's my top 5 reasons for opening a new account at Boylesports.
1. Get £50 in free bets
New customers can claim a £10 free bet for the first 5 weeks of their account as a welcome bonus. All you need to do is place a £10 bet at odds of 1/1 (2.0) or above each week and Boylesports will match that every week for the first 5 weeks. That sounds like a great incentive to get started betting at Boylesports.
2. Acca Insurance – Money back if one leg loses + 200% Bonus if you win
This is a great offer for those of you that love a weekend or midweek accumulator. Place a 5-leg acca at Boylesports and if just one lets you down (isn't it always just one!) they'll give you your stake back as a free bet, up to £25. No more kicking the cat when that late goal bursts your coupon!
But that's not all, if your acca WINS Boylesports will give you up to 200% extra to top up your winnings. Their bonus starts at 10% extra for a 5-leg acca, rising to 200% for a 15-leg acca. Money for nothing – we like that!
3. Money back if your horse is beaten by a head
If horses are more your thing you can enjoy the insurance of getting your money back if your horse is piped on the line. Boylesports will give you your money back up to £25 if your selection is beaten by a head or less. Ideal for the flat season.
4. Get £2 EVERY TIME your Top Goalscorer Bet scores
This kind of offer was hugely popular during Euro 2016 when you could cash-in on every goal scored by the player you backed to be the tournament top scorer. Boylesports are going for it again, this time based on the Premier League Top Scorer market. Bet £20 at odds of 11/1 (12.0) to finish top of the scoring charts and Boylesports will credit your account with a £2 free bet every time they hit the back of the net.
Last season Jamie Vardy struck 24 goals as hi Spurs side finished third in the table. That would've bagged you a cool £48 in free bets, even though he didn't finish as top scorer, more than enough to cover the cost of your bet.
5. Top Rated App
Betting on the move is easy with Boylesports. Their app is among the top rated sports betting apps available and allows you to watch live streaming of races from the UK and Ireland even if you're not near a TV screen. The app is available in iOS App Store and in Android version.
With the app you can also claim mobile-only offers as well as betting at the touch of a button with Flash Bet, the one-touch betting option.
