Betfair casino summary

By Simon Ho

At the time of writing Betfair offers 4 different bonuses for new players to suit all wallets. Powered by playtech, Betfair has over 180 different games including over 20 themed jackpot games from sports-themed games like Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven to movie franchises such as The Avengers. Betfair also feature some great 3rd party slots games like Monopoly but annoyingly these are part of their arcade site and cannot be directly accessed with the casino software.

Love: Lots of bonuses

Hate: The best slots games are on the arcade site not the casino

Promotions rated 9 - Betfair casino

5 RISK FREE
Betfair is one of the few casinos to offer a totally risk free 5 bonus. This comes with 50x wagering requirements which must be met playing on the slots games (and a 3 day time limit to meet them).

200% Cash Match
Betfair has numerous promotions but I will go over the 2 stand out bonuses. Their primary bonus is a 200% cash match bonus up to 300 i.e. deposit 150 get 300 bonus (450 total to play with). This bonus comes with 37x wagering requirements (so 11.1k of wagers if you take the full 300 bonus). Note betfair also offers a larger 200% slots bonus up to 1k (on a 500 deposit) however that comes with a larger 60x wagering requirement (worded as 40x bonus + deposit).

Huge Range
Betfair features over 180 games including over 20 jackpot games which cover all the classic card & tables games worth caring about and includes a few low edge variants such as Blackjack Switch and some lesser known Far Eastern games, such as mah-jong and tenwa. There are over 70 slots games including the popular Rocky, X-Men, King Kong, The Avengers etc.

Arcade Games
Ironically, arguably the best slots games on Betfair are actually on the arcade portion of their site instead of the casino software. There is just something extra fun about the slots games like Monopoly which will temp you over. As such wagers on these arcade games will not count towards your casino bonus and you have to move money between your Betfair e-wallet in order to play them.

Banking rated 10 - Betfair casino

Linked account
Betfair uses an integrated wallet system meaning you only need one account to play on their betting, poker or casino sites. When you deposit money it goes into a general wallet and you then move the money into your casino wallet. Their payment system accepts all the usual banking methods and even Paypal. Withdrawals are very fast taking less than 3 days in our experience (using debit card).

Not a free number
While Betfair offers 24/7 support by email and phone, they haven’t provided a freephone number which lets them down slightly. Their customer service staff are excellent however and makes up for the cost of the phone call.
