Virgin Bet Betting Odds

There’s a decent range of sports and events you can bet on with this operator. The list consists of almost 30 different sports, including the following.

  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Tennis
  • Horse Racing
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • American Football
  • Virtual Sports

For our research for this Virgin Bet review, we compared this operator’s odds with those of the industry leaders. Virgin Bet perform well overall, with competitive odds on most sports and events.

There are also Price Boosts available on selected markets. These can enhance the odds, meaning more profit on winnings bets.

For horse racing fans, you’ll be pleased to learn that Virgin Bet offer Best Odds Guaranteed on selected UK and Ireland meets.

Manchester City face Liverpool in the Premier League. Virgin Bet is offering odds of 1/1 (2.0) on City to win, 12/5 (3.40) on Liverpool and 3/1 (4.0) on the draw. Let’s see how they compare to other operators.

Odds Virgin Bet Paddy Power Betfair Ladbrokes
Man City 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0
Drew 4.0 3.75 4.0 3.60
Liverpool 3.40 3.30 3.40 3.40

*odds collated 01/07/2020

As you can see, the odds at Virgin Bet are certainly competitive. What does this mean for your bets? Let’s say you fancy City to win. Place a £10 bet on the available odds of 1/1 and if your bet comes in, you’ll get £20, meaning £10 profit.

Virgin Bet Promotions

Earlier in our Virgin Bet review we looked at your welcome bonus. It’s nice to start your betting journey with a new customer promotion, but it can be frustrating when there’s little to reward your loyalty.

This is where this operator is lacking a little. Best odds guaranteed are available on selected horse racing, and price boosts are offered on a number of sports regularly. Promotions on specific sporting events aren’t offered consistently, which is something we’d like to see improved.

However, price boosts are a decent addition and can add a little extra to your potential profits.

Virgin Bet Live Betting and Streaming

We are impressed with the live betting and streaming platforms on offer with this operator. There are hundreds of markets you can bet on in-play, across a number of sports.

Your in-play options include football, tennis, basketball and darts. There are also live odds available on esports, as well as volleyball, table tennis and ice hockey.

How about live streaming? Streaming is available on selected sports. Access to these streams is subject to different rules, depending on what you want to watch.

For example, if you want to watch live horse racing, a bet of £2 on that particular race is required. Check the latest t’s and c’s for updates on live streaming access on your chosen sport.

We recommend that you update your browser to the latest version in order to enjoy live streaming. The stream can be accessed using WiFi or your device data. There are slight delays on certain streams, but overall you’ll find the streams here pretty steady and reliable.

If you’re trying to access a live stream using the Virgin Bet mobile app, note that there are technical limitations. For Apple devices, iOS 9 or higher is required. 6.0 or higher is required for Android devices.

Virgin Bet Mobile App

Mobile betting has become increasingly popular in recent years. In fact, many bettors prefer the ease of betting via mobile. No longer chained to the desktop or hunting a high street bookie, using your mobile device allows you to place bets at any time, no matter where you are.

You can access your betting account using your mobile browser or by downloading the Virgin Bet mobile app. In addition, you can also sign up and take advantage of the new customer offer available via Virgin Bet mobile.

Want to download the app? It’s easy. Head to the Virgin Bet site and hit either the Google Play or App Store icon. Follow the instructions to install the app – this should only take a few minutes.

Once downloaded, you can access all areas of your betting account.

The app works extremely well. It’s easy to navigate through the site, make deposits, request withdrawals and place your bets. Live streaming can also be accessed from your mobile, so long as your device meets the technical requirements.

Virgin Bet Customer Service

From time to time, you might run into problems with your betting account. This is true of all bookmaker accounts, no matter who you’re betting with.

If you have an issue with your bonus, live streams, mobile app or anything to do with your account, help is available. There is a Help and FAQ section available from your account icon. You can also change the settings on your account easily.

If the FAQ section doesn’t answer your question fully, you can contact the customer support team. This can be done by hitting the Contact Us button. Unfortunately, the live chat service is a bot.

Type in your question and the bot will come up with a list of articles designed to answer your query. It’s difficult to get to talk to a ‘real person’ without having to trawl through the site.

Most queries tend to focus on deposits and withdrawals. There aren’t many methods available. For ease, though, we’ve listed available payment methods below.

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Apple Pay

Virgin Bet Verdict

We’ll end our Virgin Bet review with an overall verdict. There’s a lot to be excited about here. The range of sports and events available to bet on is impressive, most coming with extremely competitive odds.

The mobile app is another highlight. The platform works very well on both Android and Apple devices, and allows access to all parts of your account.

We’re disappointed by the customer service, though. 24/7 customer service is all well and good if you could actually speak to someone. Using the live chat bot can be incredibly frustrating. The lack of many deposit and withdrawal methods is also a drawback.

Still, if you’re looking for a steady bookmaker who offers great odds on a range of sports, check out what Virgin Bet has to offer. Remember, new customers can claim a welcome bonus of £20 in free bets when they deposit and stake £10.
