We will focus on Boylesports’ mobile platform in the Boylesports mobile app review to follow. Just so you know, the operator is an Irish sportsbook which was established in 1989. It started as a land-based bookmaker but later moved into the Internet gaming world by creating a betting site. Following the development of technology, they also came up with an app which is compatible with both iOS and Android gadgets. The purpose of this review is to outline the basic features and stuff you will find exploring the platform on your mobile device. We recommend reading this post through to see whether the platform is worth it or not.

Review of the Navigation
The app is user-friendly. First off, it has a pretty standard layout, and if you are used to browsing mobile betting sites, you will not get lost. On the contrary, you will easily get to where you want to go. Plus, all of the major sections are either positioned atop of the screen or in the drop-down menu.
The betting slip appears on the right top of the screen once you make a selection. It’s worth noting the pages look good and load fairly quickly. We did not find any big issues with this app. It works well and offers punters the possibility of placing bets and watching events on the go.
Boylesports has a few offers for its existing customers. Some of them are ongoing, whereas others are available for a given period of time. Newcomers receive a kind-hearted welcome with a £25 sign-up bonus, which manifests itself in free bets. What you have to do to grab that offer is place a bet of at least £10. You will be awarded a free £5 bet. The second bet you place will be matched with a 50% bet, and so on and so forth until you reach the fourth bet. Truth be told, this offer comes with some very complicated terms and conditions and it’s hard to tell whether it’s really worth your time. You have to check it out yourself.
Also, there is money back on some horse races. If the horse you back finishes second, you may be able to get your stake back, no questions asked. The maximum refund, though, is £20. So, you need to be aware that higher stakes will not be the best option here. But still, you can get a refund of some sort to save the day.
Money back is also offered on some other events and championships (you need to check out the promotional page and opt in to get things going). Plus, the best price is guaranteed on horse racing. If the early price you’ve taken seems to be lower than the starting price, your winnings will be paid out based on the starting price. Again, no questions asked.
There are other bonuses and offers on the promotional page worth a look at.
Review of the Live Streaming and Betting
There are a few sports to place live bets on: Ice Hockey, Tennis, Handball, Beach Volleyball, Snooker, Cricket, Football, and Rugby League. You can see the available bets and markets by selecting an event. It is important to note that some games have the Cash Out feature on and this is as true for pre-match betting as it is for in-play betting. It lets you take some cash back before the game has ended. The sum will be based on a percentage of the prospective returns. You get the Cash Out feature on a few sports like Baseball, Rugby, Snooker, Basketball, Football, etc., on both multiple and single bets.
The overall margin for betting is 4.2%. For tennis, it is 3.1%, for football it is 6.0%. American football has a betting margin of 4.5%, whereas basketball gets 4.1%. Minimum bet requirement: £0.01. For live streaming, though, it is £5.
Live streaming of selected events is well catered for. You get the chance to watch horse racing events from the UK and Ireland alike. Enhanced prices are offered on a number of games. The odds are updated at lightning speed. However, keep in mind that you must meet the bet requirements to watch any race.
Withdrawals and Deposits
There are several ways to make deposits and withdrawals on Boylesports using the mobile platform. The most common methods are debit and credit cards such as Laser, MasterCard, Visa and electronic cards; Neteller; Skill; PayPal (users from the UK and Ireland only); bank transfers and cheques.

Questions & Answers
In the end, let’s answer some of your questions.
Where is the app available for download?
If you are using iPhone, try checking out the App Store. Alternatively, open the site and click on the download link at the very top of the page. You will be prompted to enter your phone number. As you do so, you will be texted a link. Android users can use only the second option because the app is not available on Google Play.
Is the mobile platform safe?
Yes, it is. You don’t have to worry about safety as long as you are trying to obtain the app from Boylesports’ official website. The operator uses SSL encryption to protect customer data; plus, all their features and apps are designed using the latest technologies. There is nothing to be afraid of.
Can I withdraw using the app?
Of course. Visit the “My Account” section, find the cashier icon and follow the instructions. Keep in mind that you will not receive the money instantly due to withdrawal processing times.
