A Betting App Worthy Of Its Brand Name
Virgin Bet Review
The Virgin bet app is part of the offerings owned and run by The LiveScore Group. It was launched in the middle of 2019 and has since frequently found itself inside the top 100 sports apps on the Apple App Store.
The Virgin bet app is available as dedicated apps for iOS and Android users. There’s also a mobile optimised website that can be accessed from any mobile web browser.

Virgin Bet App Review
The Virgin bet app runs on software developed by SBTech – part of the Draftkings group, who have over ten years of experience in over 20 regulated markets.
As the app has not been developed in-house, the whole layout and feel is very similar to other stock betting apps, such as SportNation, Bethard and Leo Vegas.
We found the app to be trustworthy and reliable across both iOS and Android devices, even through the busy weekend periods.
There’s over thirty different event and sport categories to choose from, with the most popular being the football and horse racing.
The football betting page is a user friendly hub, that outlines all of the football leagues across the globes. Users can quickly search today’s football, as well as having the option to search various accumulator coupons. For example,
- UK football
- Both teams to score
- Total goals
- Double chance
- Elite Euro
- Asian football
- Nordic football
- North American football
- South American football
The horse racing section is in depth, covering all UK & Ireland races. It also offers up prices on racing from elsewhere around the world, for example:
- South Africa
Coloured silks next to each horse makes the experience more pleasing in the eye, as well as making it easier to keep track of the horse when watching the race live. Race cards are easy to get to and information such as jockey, trainer, form and how the odds have drifted are all clearly displayed.
Virgin Bet App Features
A-Z Horse Feature
One of the newest features in relation to horse racing is the A-Z horse finder. This lists all of the horses that are priced up by the Virgin Bet traders in alphabetical order. This can save a lot of time when you have been given a tip and have nothing to go off other than the horse’s name.
The Virgin Bet app has a bet builder available for football punters. Users can combine up to six selections from a choice of over 35 markets to compile their own unique bet.
The bet builder isn’t as user friendly as other systems, but once familiar with the layout, building a bet becomes much quicker of a process.
Users can watch and bet with the Virgin bet app. Live streaming is available across a broad range of sports and events including:
- Horse racing
- Table tennis
- Ice hockey
All that is required to connect to any of the available live streams is to have a positive account balance of 1p or more.
This is a lot more generous than other live streaming services, who often require a larger amount in the account balance. Some even require users to physically bet on the event in question to be able to open up the live stream.
Cash out is available with Virgin bet. However, partial cash out is not. If a cash out is offered on a specific bet, the amount will be clearly displayed within the “My Bets” section of the app.
Cash out is not offered across any bet builder bet. It can be made available across free bets, but the cash out amount offered will be of a lower value than that of a bet staked with real funds.
Fives is a free weekly game that gives users the opportunity to earn some free cash. Users get the chance to reveal a player each weekday who could end up putting some cash in to their account.
*1x Player revealed in-game each day, max of 5 players per round of fixtures. Cash amount for each goal scored by players. Cash amount decided by wheel, credited as withdrawable cash. Click here for full rules. BeGambleAware.org. 18+
A player and a specific fixture will be revealed each day, giving users up to five active players for the weekend. St the end of the week, a wheel is spun to determine how much cash the user will get every time one of their five players scores in their respective matches.
The potential of free cash keeps the users happy, as well as keeping them logging in regularly, putting a smile on the faces of the Virgin Bet representatives.
Additional to the Fives feature is another free game that can issue out users with bonus spins or cash amounts.
*Must have funded Account once prior to play. Max 6 picks per day. Free Spins only valid on Secrets of the Phoenix (25p Coin Size), Secrets of the Phoenix Megaways (20p Coin Size) or Secrets of the Phoenix Elements (20p Coin Size). Promotion runs Mon-Sun weekly until 26/06/22. Free Spins, valid for 90 days. One Selected Daily Free Game per week.
A map is provided with 90 squares in a 10 x 9 format and users get to pick six squares each day, with the board resetting each week.
A key at the side shows the available symbols that are available on the board, detailing how many need to be found to unlock the associated prize.
Prizes available the last time we played ranged from 5 free spins to £750 cash.
A small amount of free spins is all we have managed to muster so far from this feature, but still better, it’s better than nothing.
Bonuses And Promotions
Additional extras are also frequently on hand to take advantage of. A dedicated promotions section found within the top menu bar clearly details what is currently available to be snapped up.
Additional offers usually requires the user to speculate in order to accumulate, but the value that the promotions generally give are high to those who frequently bet.
Casino And Games
The Virgin bet app is far more than just a sports betting app. A casino and a live casino section has been integrated in to the app to offer an all-in-one online gambling service.
Popular slots titles such as Gonzo’s quest, Rainbow Riches, Ted, Genie Jackpots and Fishing frenzy are all built in to the casino section for those times when sporting events are thin on the ground.
The live casino suite has attractive live dealers spinning the roulette wheel, dealing the cards and rolling the dice. Alongside traditional casino games such as blackjack and craps, there are also poplar and quirky live dealer games such as crazy time, lightning roulette and Monopoly Live.
Virgin Bet Withdrawal Time
The Withdrawal time on the Virgin Bet app can vary between instant, up to five days. This depends on the Withdrawal method requested.
- Paypal – Instant
- Visa – 2-3 hours
- Mastercard – 1-3 days
- Bank transfer – 2-5 working days
The Virgin bet app is a fully UK licensed online betting service. It is easy to navigate and although it is a little clunky, it has a lot to offer.
Odds are competitive across the board, but rarely best price. However, the prices are never too far away. Placing bets is quick and in built features such as cash out and live streaming brings about much more than just a simple betting service.
The Virgin Bet app is not our number one betting app, but we do find ourselves login in frequently to pick up the value in promotions, as well as to have a little snoop around the specials and exclusives that are priced up.
The app gets a thumbs up from us and we are happy to stamp down a positive recommendation to anyone who may be looking for an alternative betting app to add to their account portfolio.
Q & A
The Virgin Bet iPhone app can be downloaded directly from the App Store. Similarly, Android users within the UK should also be able to download the Virgin Bet Android app from the Google Play Store.
The service is also available from any mobile web browser. For example, Safari, Google Chrome and Firefox.
Enter Virginbet.com in to your URL address bar and you will receive exactly the same service as the dedicated apps available.
To change odds from either decimal or fractions, head to the bet slip. Once open, tap on the cog icon in the top right of the bet-slip to enter in to the settings and preferences.
The option to change the odds format should now show.
