Depositing to your account is as easy as pie – Virgin Bet offer a heap of options including the good old debit card.
Getting your hands on those winnings is also easy and quick, the money will magically appear back wherever you deposited from.
Virgin Bet Odds
For such a new company, Virgin Bet offer an enviable choice of betting markets, ranging from the mainstream such as football and horse racing to more niche sports such as volleyball and hurling.
Odds-wise, they are in line with main bookies and while they do offer some daily Price Boosts, these are currently limited compared to their rivals.
They do, however, offer Best Odds Guaranteed on horse racing so you can relax knowing that if your horse wins at a bigger price than you’d taken, you’re covered.

Virgin Bet Sports & Markets
Despite being a newbie, Virgin Bet offer a cracking range of sports and events to have a punt on at competitive odds.
The top sports that they cover currently are:
Football – plenty of football to get stuck into including all the main European leagues and action from further afield, including the MLS and Mexico.
Horse Racing – as you’d expect, UK and Ireland racing fans are well catered for but Virgin Bet also have markets on racing from South Africa and the US to keep those global racing fans happy.
Cricket – a great array of betting markets available on all forms of cricket including T20 and the Indian Premier League – howzat.
Virgin Bet App & Mobile
Virgin Bet have a great mobile site and free app – both offer a satisfying user experience and are really easy to navigate, something the big boys could learn from.
You can also access a ton of stats on the mobile site and app which is super handy when you’re needing some pointers before placing your bet.
Virgin Bet – Our Rating
Virgin Bet offer a tasty new customer promo and a really slick website and app – one of the best out there.
On the downside, their Price Boosts are limited in number when compared to other bookies, this is something they will hopefully increase over time – fingers crossed.
Overall, we give Virgin Bet a rating of 4 out of 5.
