Range of Sports and Markets = Normal

They have a wide range of coverage for most sports, with International Football particularly well covered. There are matches for virtually every league in the World, and they even cover Women’s friendly games too! In the UK it is a little disappointing that their depth only extends to League 2 but this does cover the vast majority of games for teams people support. For the games which they do cover though, for example, UK Premier League games the range of markets is exemplary.  

Not only do they have everything you would expect, First Goal Scorers and Correct Scores, etc, etc, along with the full range of over / under markets and Asian handicaps,  but on top of this they have total ball possession, the total number of offsides, the number of shots on target, really almost everything you can think of.

Away from football, they have an excellent Horse Racing offering with races from around the World well covered, not just UK and Ireland. They provide Early Prices and the interface is one of the best designed that we have come across displaying a large amount of race info and data. Other sports are similarly well serviced with easy navigation and depth of markets and generous odds across the board.



Odds = Good

We calculated the margin for VirginBet by analyzing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Low

From 5.01% to 7%: Normal

From 7.01% to 10%: High

Football

We got our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the over / under for different football leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

VirginBet has an overall average margin of 6.51% for football and falls in the normal category. In the first section with Premier League and Championship, the margin is at 4.39%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Seria A, the margin is at 8.81%. Finally, taking the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa into account, the margin is at 6.33%.

In-Play Betting = Good

The “In-Play” offering here is above average, covering major games in almost every sport. As you would expect football is most heavily featured but they also allow in running bets on every UK Horse race which is a rarity for UK bookmakers.

The televised streaming of events could be improved, with UK Horse racing the main source of pictures for this feature. For all matches and across all sports the number of variables to bet on could be improved, most of the time it is just the outright winner which you can bet on once “In-play”.
