Like most online casinos, many of the games on offer are slot based. You’ll also find all the classic casino games available to play, with a good range of options within each category. 

One area where Betfair is lacking in comparison to other online casinos is in the live casino games offered. With just 10 from you to choose from, Betfair’s live casino offering compares poorly to other online casinos – most have a dozen and some have 20 or more.

Even though there could be more, the live games in roulette are very good, with the video quality one among the very best we’ve seen from any online casino.

Summary

The online casino games are varied and cover all of the main categories and if you’re looking for a live casino gaming experience, then Betfair has one of the very best interfaces you’ll find in an online casino.

Sports betting and games

Betfair is really big on sports gaming and its selection is huge. Not only do you get the standards (horse racing and football) there are also more niche sports, such as mixed martial arts and bowls.

Summary

If sports betting is your thing then you’ll absolutely adore Betfair. There is an absolutely enormous range of sports available to bet on (27 in total) and you can place all manner of traditional sports bets, such as the top scorer in the English Premier League, or one of the winners at Ascot.

But where Betfair really shines is in the range of virtual games. The standard of the graphics is very high, giving an extremely realistic rendering of the sport you choose to bet on and leaving you often feeling as though you’re at the side of the track or pitch as you place your bet.

There is a range of different betting rules and limits, depending on the sport that you are betting on. Check the Terms and Conditions to find out more.

Baccarat

This is one of the favourite games of poker legend, Phil Ivey. Not without good reason either. It’s been played since as early as the 15th-century and is extremely satisfying to play whether you’re in a bricks and mortar casino or an online casino.

While Betfair has a very limited range of Baccarat games, with just two available. Currently, you can play:

  • Live Baccarat
  • Baccarat

Get a feel for what you be able to play once you’ve set up your Betfair account by looking at the retro screenshot below…

Poker

The video poker games on Betfair are some of our favourite games you can play with this excellent online casino. Among the games you can select from are:

  • Deuces Wild Multi-Hand
  • Joker Poker
  • Aces & Faces
  • Jacks Or Better
  • Casino Hold ‘Em

Have a look at this one below to get an idea of what you can play once you’ve got your Betfair account in place…

Betfair Casino

Sports

Sports betting is huge on Betfair. It’s where it makes its name and, as you’d expect, there is a deep library of options for your sports betting – you can pick from 32 different sports.

Football fans have plenty of choices. You can bet on international, continental, national, and even reserve games and tournaments. Bets range from team-based to individual – for example, you can get which team will win a game, the scorers in a game, or both.

Horse racing enthusiasts also have a great range of options. You can choose from 36 racetracks in Great Britain or pick a track from a number of different countries – such as Chile, India, and Singapore. 

A few examples of the sports betting options available with Betfair are:

  • Football Jackpots
  • Virtual Horse Racing
  • English Premier League Top Scorer

Below you can see an example of Betfair’s Virtual Horse Racing…

Mobile games

You can see Betfair has put a lot of thought and effort into the mobile gaming experience. Firstly, it’s a fair representation of what you get from their online offering and is considerably better than the apps you’ll get from many other online casinos –  Betfair’s app having approximately 25% of the number the games you get online.

Secondly, You can also get designated Betfair apps in the following categories:

  • Exchange
  • Casino
  • Arcade
  • Live Casino
  • Poker
  • Bingo
  • Sports

These tailored apps really make Betfair stand head and shoulders above other online casinos – even if other online casinos get the basics right, they don’t give you an app designed specifically for your favourite online game.

Overall, we were really impressed by the mobile gaming facility available from Betfair and we’re certain that you will be too.

Summary

Betfair has a wide number of games and a range of variations on them. The one thing that really struck us was the interface. Compared to some online casinos, it’s really strong, with a crisp and realistic feel to it. Check out Betfair’s home page and Terms and Conditions to find out more about the games available.


Software

Betfair’s games have an extremely smooth feel, with many giving you the impression that you’re either sat in front of a slot machine or down at a gaming table.

And that’s because Betfair has partnered with Playtech, a gambling software company with three decades of experience.

This means that the live casino games are of an extremely high standard and are superior to many of Betfair’s online casino competitors.

Summary

If you want your online casino gaming to be smooth and visually appealing then there are very few (if any) better options than Betfair. We were seriously impressed.

Summary of Betfair bonuses and deals

Betfair offers an enormous number of bonuses and really excels by keeping its promotional offers fresh and current.

However, while there are a huge number of bonuses and a VIP loyalty scheme which offer regular and personalised bonuses, one minor drawback is that Betfair’s members' bonus offering is maybe too personal.

The general loyalty scheme isn’t the same flagship quality that you’ll find at other online casinos — it seems like Betfair is geared towards the frequent power user when it comes to raking in those loyalty points.

This, though, is a minor point and overall you’ll be delighted the number and quality of bonuses on offer.

There is a range of different bonuses. Check the Terms and Conditions to find out more. Check out Betfair’s home page for more information about the bonuses.

Betting limits 

When you head to an online casino, you need to know that you won’t be forced into putting down bets that are either higher or lower than you want to make. Thankfully, Betfair caters for both the low and high stakes players:

CARD AND TABLE GAMES

MIN BET

MAX BET

Slots

£0.01

£5,000

Blackjack

£1

£7,500

Roulette

£0.01

£10,000

Poker

£0.02

No limit

Summary

Betfair caters perfectly for the low stakes players, with many games having extremely small minimum bets.

Where you might feel let down is at the higher end of the scale. This is because while the max bet is a hefty £5,000 for slots, the £7,500 and £10,000 limits for Blackjack and Roulette respectively are a lot smaller than some other online casinos.

Check the terms and conditions for details on betting and payout limitations. You’ll also find more information on Betfair’s home page.


What your bank account loves about Betfair

It’s crucial to know that you’ve got a decent chance of actually winning some money when you head over to an online casino. The way to establish that is to review the Return To Player (%RTP) of each of the games offered by the casino.

While the precise RTP will depend on the exact rules of the game you are playing. Betfair has a good RTP across their games, as you’ll see below:

Customer support

While Betfair has a designed telephone support service in place, open from 07:30 to 00:30 GMT, the best support facilities it offers come online, through the Q&As on its help centre, live chat, and social media support via Twitter and Facebook (also open from 07:30 to 00:30 GMT).

However, while the live chat is easy to find, we had enormous trouble getting it to work – after numerous times trying to get it to load we still weren’t able to get it to open.

Summary

There are plenty of options available to get the support you need and we recommend searching for an answer first, as there’s a very good chance you’ll get the information you need. However, be wary of the live chat.

Betfair Casino reviews by players
Very good as far as I'm concerned I've had an account for a good few years I don't spend a fortune on there and if I do win my money is in my account quite quick. Also they are responsible when it comes to player protection would recommend this site.
Jason Winning Sadler
So I am an Australian customer so the experience may be different but here the Betfair exchange is a fantastic product used by bookies and recreational punters. Fast deposits and withdrawals, no problems with customer service, but most importantly the company don't try and screw you around like the corporate bookies do here in Aus... If you have a question, they will answer it truthfully. Never had a withdrawal be delayed or take longer than 1 business day, or had any restrictions placed on my account which is about +$1,000 profit.

As a high roller, I was excited to discover Betfair Casino. Not only is there a specific high roller welcome bonus, but the VIP club also rewards high rollers, making this a very worthwhile casino for me to play at. Their game variety also offered many choices with different types of games and bet sizes.
I found Betfair Casino to offer most of what I wanted, but my choices felt a bit limited. There were good welcome bonuses, but not many bonuses after that. The banking methods were also a bit limited for each country and customer support is available 24/7, but not via live chat.
Betfair Casino offered a good selection of games and I enjoyed their bonuses and promotions. The biggest plus for me was that you can choose a welcome bonus based on your bankroll and playing style which was perfect for me. I got a bonus that was suitable and useful and boosted my bankroll.

Why Online Casinos love Betfair

There is so much that we like about Betfair: the games, the look, and the resources available from their ambassadors being just three of our favourite things. Betfair likes to think of itself as one of the online casino world’s revolutionaries and it really has changed the way the industry works.

However, what we really love about Betfair is that their extremely competitive RTP means we feel like we’re going to finish every gaming session with a healthier bank balance than when we started – even if that’s not always true (you can’t win all the time!)
