Benefits of BoyleSports mobile app
No matter if you are into sports betting, casino games or competitive poker, downloading the respective app comes with several benefits. For one, they perform slightly better than the mobile site. You will notice that switching between pages, loading games and so on is quicker and smoother when using the app. You also have the added advantage that the betting app supports fingerprint login, which is the fastest way to log in without storing your details.
BoyleSports mobile site
For players who like a varied betting experience, sticking with the mobile site might be a better option. Using the website to switch between sports betting and poker, for instance, is quicker than loading two different apps. You also do not have the mild inconvenience of having three different apps to update and store on your hard drive.
While you pay the price of slightly slower speeds, the mobile site is far from sluggish and is still very useable. The only problem you may occasionally face is that certain pages may ‘jump’ as there may be a banner that is slow to load. You can end up tapping the wrong link as a result. The BoyleSports mobile site will load automatically on any internet browser with no installation of any kind required.
BoyleSports mobile app Sports Betting
With the main BoyleSports betting app, you have the world of sport at your fingertip. Featuring a huge range of sporting events (including virtual sports) from across the globe, you will enjoy fantastic coverage through the app. We are also impressed with the excellent range of markets too. Features such as stats bets and bet builders give players lots of possibilities. With bigger football matches, you can even see what percentage of customers have backed each team via the ‘verdict’ tab.
BoyleSports Casino & Games app
In addition to their main sports betting app, BoyleSports also have a separate ‘Casino and Games’ app. You might wonder why this is necessary as the main betting app features a link to the casino. Tapping this link, however, will take you out of the app and to the casino mobile site. This is why having the dedicated casino app is better for players who want to play games on even occasionally.
Available in both the App Store and Google Play Store, you can install and download the casino app by following the same steps provided above. Although a little basic in appearance, the casino apps fully deliver when it comes to performance and user interface. Easily accessible filters and menus make finding your ideal game an easy task. There is one major drawback to the casino app, though, and this relates to storage. Whenever you tap ‘play’ on a particular game, the game downloads onto your device. This means it takes very little time to boot when accessing it again but with the downside that even just having a few games can take up hundreds of megabytes of storage.
BoyleSports Poker app
If you are looking to try out games such as casino hold ‘em and video poker against a computer, you can play this via the casino and games app. Should you want to engage in ‘real’ poker against other people, though, the BoyleSports Poker app is what you will want. There is a good variety of tables and competitions on offer, all within a well-built app. We certainly had no issues finding different tables, placing our bets or changing the wide range of in-game settings. The dedicated poker app is available on Android and iOS.
Notable Mobile Features
- Bet Builder
We are delighted that BoyleSports mobile supports their ‘Bet Builder feature. This allows customers to combine several different markets within the same event to create very personalised bets.
- Cash Out
The large ‘cash out’ button at the bottom of the page ensures players can stay in control of their bets. Interestingly, players can even cash out bets they placed at a BoyleSports shop, providing they download the Boylesports Bet Tracker app (available on iOS and Android). With this separate app, you can scan the barcode of in-store bet tickets using your smartphone camera.
- Live racing streamsThrough your smartphone, you can watch live greyhound and horse racing action even without placing a bet. To access this, just tap the ‘my live races’ button.
BoyleSports are one of the very few online bookmakers that run mobile-exclusive promotions. Whenever there is an active offer, you will see a large notification when loading the betting app for the first time, making it impossible to miss. Their standard mobile-exclusive offer is bet £10, get £20/£30 in free bets, but this may not always be the case.
The betting iOS app requires 9.0 or later, making it compatible with the overwhelming majority of iPhones. If you are unsure what OS you are running, any phone newer than the iPhone 4 should be compatible. There is also a low entry requirement for the Android betting app as it only requires 5.0 (Lollipop) or above.
As for the other apps BoyleSports provides, the casino and games app requires iOS 10.0 or later or Android 4.2 and up, and the poker app needs a minimum of iOS 11.0 or Android 5.0.
Mobile Payment Methods
We are glad to see BoyleSports have embraced popular mobile payment methods such as Boky, Google Pay and Apple Pay. Regardless of the payment method chosen, BoyleSports will aim to process withdrawal requests within 24 hours.

John Boyle is the man behind BoyleSports. In 1982 he opened the first BoyleSports store in Markethill, Northern Ireland. Thanks to his early success, he was able to open more shops across the whole of Ireland with the result that today BoyleSports stands as Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker. The brand also has a large presence in the UK too, particularly when it comes to sports betting. In 2019, they became the main sponsor of Birmingham City and, in 2020, the main sponsors of nearby Coventry City.

BoyleSports have done an excellent job overall when it comes to their mobile service and fully deserve their score of 9/10. We like they have a range of apps to support their main features, and each one provides an easy, customisable and quick playing experience.
