Boylesports Casino Review


BoyleSports is a very well-known and trusted online bookies from the green shores of Ireland and now open to South African online gamblers. The CasinoPlay crew were very impressed with how BoyleSports put a locally infused flavour to their website. Along with the local gambling license it bodes well for this online and mobile gambling partner and making the effort to bring some Mzansi elements to their international positioning is a great testament to how BoyleSports are willing to welcome us to their platform and make us feel comfortable.

But will it be enough to challenge the homegrown options we have available to us?

While we did find the design a bit plain and uninspiring, it appears that BoyleSports have gone the very frugal route to make the experience easy – which is good, but we like to be entertained from the moment we step virtual foot into our gambling partner of choice.   

Personal needs for constant entertainment aside, BoyleSports has brought a very straightforward and easy to navigate site to us South African online gamblers. The layout and design are familiar to any visitor to virtual homes of the arts of chance. Lots of tabs and links to various lobbies, animated banners with the latest deals, odds, and promos, static blocks with offers (nicely displaying local hero sports hero Bernard Parker), and clear paths to markets, support, promos, rules, and Ts and Cs.

What is nice is the way BoyleSports have laid everything – everything! – in an easy to see and navigate way straight from the home page. The home page is obviously centred on the sports offering and, as is usual, this page opens up with football being dominant.

But BoyleSports have also managed to make everything else visible through a handy top menu bar with links to WhatsApps Support, Promotions, About Us, Contact Us, Betting Rules, Ts and Cs, Live Scores, Sporting Results, and Sporting Statistics – all the little details that are normally hidden away at the bottom of the page but are actually quite important and/or interesting to online gamblers.

Below this is the main header area with the home link logo and the Login and Join buttons, nice and big to grab attention.

This is followed by a second menu bar with links to the different lobbies: Sport, Live, Vegas Games, Lucky Numbers, Horse Racing, Betgames, Live Games, and Virtual Games. Live links to live sports action while Live Games links to a ‘live’ video roulette game. For fans of Live Casino games, the extensive selection of online Live Dealer options is available within the Vegas Games lobby. A little confusing, to be sure.

The sports betting is made simple with a main screen area devoted to all the different games and events that are accessed through clicking on the chosen sport from the menu on the left, while Betslips and My Bets are always visible to the right of the screen.

Once you explore the other lobbies, you will find that the layout changes to accommodate that particular online gambling choice with the online casino in particular being quite attractive. Nice, clear divisions lead the eye to all the big thumbnails for the different games and the online slots are easily differentiated from the Live Casino games, something that is often a little busy and cluttered on other online gambling sites. Navigation through the online casino is made easy through various search functions although, as mentioned in our opening comments, BoyleSports do seem to have neglected to add new headers for NetEnt and Red Tiger games on their Providers search.

Overall, the BoyleSports design choices work for the busy gambler and South Africans will be comfortable navigating around and exploring the site.


Simplicity is key to the BoyleSports design, and this extends into the sign up and log in process. Big login and Join buttons leave no room for doubt as to where a newcomer needs to head and, once registered and signed up, login is a simple click away.

BoyleSports is secured using industry standard SSL digital encryption to ensure all your data is secure and is compliant with PoPI legislation to ensure your personal details are kept private. is licensed and regulated through the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board and supports Responsible Gambling and Fair Play policies.


An extensive online sports book, all the usual Betgames and fixed-odds lotteries, and a super online casino filled with top shelf online slots and Live Casino games will keep any SA online gambler busy and happy for days. “This Is Betting” is the BoyleSports slogan and this is indeed a great place to put down some Randelas on your favourite team or try your luck at the games of chance.

The only thing really missing from the BoyleSports portfolio is ever-growing eSports options. While there is a League of Legends tab, there are a ton of other eSports that are becoming some of the biggest, and most lucrative, sports betting choices around.

Sports betting has a comprehensive choice of sports and markets from around the world that caters to almost every sports lover’s needs. For the SA iteration of the popular bookies, there are unfortunately a few less than what one would find in Ireland, but there are enough choices and those cover all our most popular sporting codes. Soccer is huge. Rugby, cricket, golf, tennis, F1, boxing, and basketball are all there. And there is a separate, dedicated lobby for fans of the horses. Apart from these, there are a bunch of interesting and unusual options too, like handball, snooker, American and Aussie Rules football, and a great Special tab for those that like their gambling to reflect their interest in the world of Entertainment or Music or Politics.

Odds are decent and the markets cover pretty much every permutation of the results you could wish for with live updates and live scores always on the go.

A few of the most popular sports and events on offer at 10Bet include:

  • Soccer
  • American Football
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Cycling
  • Darts
  • F1
  • Golf
  • Handball
  • Ice Hockey
  • Motorcycle Racing
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker
  • Specials
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball

Casino games

The online casino is awesome. With top providers like Aardvark, Evolution, NetEnt, Red Tiger, and Pragmatic Play on board, BoyleSports is able to bring a really impressive and diverse array of online casino games to fans of games of chance.

Online slots and online Live Casino games dominate the online casino, which can be found under the Vegas Games tab. There are other online games available through Betgames (smaller, always-on Live Dealer games), and there is an odd little Roulette game under Live Games, which as we mentioned earlier has nothing to do with either Live Casino games or Live sports, but there you go.

Virtual Games offers Spins and win, Keno, and Winners Wheel, but it’s the Vegas Games that will attract online casino fans from South Africa.

Easy to navigate and filled with various ways of finding favourite, new, or popular games, the online casino really has a fantastic selection from big name game studios. Classic old-school slots, modern immersive games, 3-reel to 7-reel, fixed paylines to cluster pays, and a with every theme under the sun there is an online slots game for everyone.

And the Live Casino is amazing. Professional, classy, and action-packed it offers table games and Gameshow style live games that are thrilling and rewarding.

Lucky Numbers

For those who dream of the huge lottery pay outs, the Lucky Numbers lobby has a massive selection from lotteries all around the world.

There is no obvious loyalty or VIP programme but maybe we’ll get more info as we continue visiting.

There is no dedicated app for BoyleSports but getting into the action using your mobile device web browser is simple and has pretty much the same experience as via the desktop. Very clean and professional with no loss of quality or options.

South African online players will be comfortable with the banking methods at BoyleSports. The Payment Gateways tab at the bottom of the page shows that BoyleSports accepts deposits from recognised and trusted banking channels.


  • Visa and Mastercard debit/credit cards

Promotions are a little scarce. We are used to being inundated with offers and deposit bonuses and rewards so the relative lack of gig promotions from BoyleSports was a little disappointing. Still, what there is will keep most players happy enough and there is a great Welcome Bonus so… has a good range of incentives to keep playing.
