Overview

Betfair is one of the pillars in the sports betting industry, literally the biggest betting exchange platform, and a popular destination for casino players who are fond of the Playtech family. Established way back in 2000, and merged with Paddy Power in 2016, it has become one of the biggest entities in the industry. It is more than just an online casino. Betfair can single-handedly entertain adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers of all tastes and types. It is available in multiple languages and it comes with a high end VIP program. Are you excited yet? Let’s find out more about it.

Overview

Bonuses for new customers

Once you land at Betfair, look for the Casino tab. Underneath it, another menu will appear. If you’re registered, visit the promotions section. It offers several options. All new players receive 30 Free Spins on a selection of slots. However, you should know that 10 Free Spins are released each day, meaning you will not get all 30 free spins immediately.

Table game players should opt for the 100% up to £100 welcome bonus. Considering its nature, it’s modest, but it can take you to great distance.

Slot players have a much more generous welcome offer at their disposal. We’re talking about a 100% bonus up to staggering £1,000 spiced up with 10 Free Spins once you complete the requirements. Lastly, Betfair boasts with its live casino, offering £10 as a tease on all eligible games.

Note, you can claim only one of these 3, so choose carefully.

Security

As we mentioned in the introduction of this review, Betfair is among the biggest operators currently online. As such, it does not impose any threats that might harm you. It’s a publicly listed company on the London Stock Exchange, providing publicly available reports. Its online gaming operations in specific are monitored by the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association, the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. Following Brexit, the UK license becomes mandatory.

When it comes to security, like in many other aspects, Betfair is a role model, an example for other recently established online casino operators.

Banking

One expects to see a diverse payment options list from an operator with Betfair’s gravity. However, considering its size, its reputation and its long presence on the market, we can confidently say that the options are fairly limited. Yes, there’s PayPal, ClickandBuy, Sofort and other e-wallets like Skrill and Neteller, but that’s pretty much it. The rest are debit and credit cards. Paysafecard must be duly noted as well.

Betfair accepts deposits and pays out withdrawals in many currencies, among which you can find GBP, EUR, AUD, CAN, USD, SEK and NOK. The payouts are fast, but only if you have all documents in order. Also, when a player withdraws, if the method used to make the deposit can act as a withdrawal method, it has the priority. Otherwise, the player has to choose a different withdrawal method. These payment options are inclined towards players from the UK, Germany, Austria, Sweden and Ireland.

Casino Games

Primarily, Betfair is a Playtech casino. Besides Playtech’s originals, players can also enjoy the games produced by Playtech’s subsidiaries, like Ash Gaming for instance. This means that you can enjoy games like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Monty Python’s Life of Brian slot and Bounty of the Beanstalk. The full Age of the Gods line of jackpot slots is available, as a replacement of the popular, now games of the past based the Marvel superhero universe. Table games come in high numbers and bring a lot of diversity.

Slot players who like to enjoy modern and popular slots should look for the tab Vegas Slots. This tab hides games produced by Quickspin, WMS, Blueprint Gaming, Odobo, IGT and there are a few NetEnt products as well, but there’s so few of them that it looks just like a tease. The Betfair Vegas Slots section comes with advanced filters that will surely get you to the type of slot game you’re looking for.

Mobile

The mobile app provided by Betfair “means business”. It’s a technological marvel, fitting all the necessary info, features and products that won’t leave any casino player, sports betting enthusiast or avid poker player indifferent. It’s an all in one product and there’s no need to download it. We enjoyed it, mainly because it looks and feels as if there isn’t any room for improvements. Android, iOS and Windows devices are fully compatible with the Betfair mobile app.

We’d like to point out the DC Comics slots based on retro depictions, such as Batman & Catwoman Cash, Batman & The Joker Jewels or if you prefer a more recent release, check out Green Lantern slot, based on the movie starring Ryan Reynolds. The Live Casino is available to mobile players as well.

Live Casino

Befair might be a bit behind in the slots area, but when it comes to live dealer experience, it’s second to none. There are a ton of tables, covering blackjack, roulette, baccarat, sic bo, Hi-Lo and Casino Hold’em. It’s a diverse live casino game offer. Speaking of diversity, there’s even a special line of Live Dealer French Roulette tables, with bet limits starting at €0.10 only going up to €500. Betfair encourages players to get familiar with the Blackjack Basic Strategy before they indulge into serious play.

Baccarat and Poker also come in multiple game versions. Betfair features one of the best Live Casinos we’ve seen in a long time.

Free Play Bonuses

Live Casino Welcome Bonus of £/€/$10.

Vip

Betfair pays a great deal of attention to VIP players, loyal players who are active as well. They’ve laid out the information players should know about the Betfair Casino VIP. You want to be part of the Gold VIP, Platinum VIP and Diamond VIP. VIP players can ask for custom gaming experience. Unique bonus deals, take them. Tailor made bonuses that suit your needs, claim them. Higher bet limits, you got it. You can do all of this with the help of your dedicated account manager. However, there’s no mention how much you should wager, deposit or win before you’re considered a VIP.

Customer Service

The Betfair Help Centre holds the information that can help out casino players, sports betting enthusiasts and poker players. Basically, everything you need to or you want to know is put in here. Simply search for your query and the interface will provide you with potential solutions. If this fails, you can contact the customer support team of Betfair via live chat, email or by phone. The open hours are between 7:30 AM and 12:30 AM CET. We have mix conclusions about the level of quality of the customer support. Some players will find it adequate, whereas others will be strongly dissatisfied, depending on your past experience and what you’re accustomed to.

Markets

Ideally, if you join Betfair you better be from the UK or Ireland. These two player groups experience Betfair at its best. However, Betfair as a brand, and as a casino is open to a wider player base. After all, it’s available in 8 European languages, like Russian, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Spanish, Greek, Portuguese and English. This pretty much covers all core EU markets, except Norway and Finland.

Betfair has a special website for Australian players. If you’re coming from “lonely continent” make sure you’re actually in the Aussie dedicated Betfair Casino.
