Review of Betfair Casino
Anyone from the UK that ever dabbled in sports betting online will know that Betfair is one of the greats in that segment, and as one can expect they also offer an online casino that can be accessed with the same login credentials – as if that wasn’t enough there is also poker against other players, bingo and a wide range of other real money games on offer at Betfair.
You will hardly lack options if you play at Betfair, there is almost too much on offer and finding your way can be confusing at first. The options as can be seen in the cropped screenshot below are plenty and the categorisation is at first glance far from obvious.
But there is a method to the madness and the reason why it looks like this is because Betfair Casino works with the UK gambling giant Playtech, and they requires that only their games go under the ‘casino’ tabs on the site. Clicking the ‘Casino’ or ‘Live Casino’ tabs will show only games distributed by Playtech and the other tabs are dedicated to other premium providers. This is not something unique to Betfair and if you’ve played at any other Playtech casinos you will recognise the setup. It takes a couple of clicks to get used to what can be found where, but in the grand scheme of things this is just a minor inconvenience.
Betfair casino, including the games that are not found under the casino-tabs, are all-in-all an amazing product and if you are into sports betting it will be something of a match made in heaven.

Bonus at Betfair Casino
Betfair Casino Bonus - Take your Pick!
There are some serious considerations to be made before jumping into the action, there are namely no less than three different bonuses available for first time depositors. One for live casino games, and two different options for slots and other games.
Claim the Betfair bonus of your choice from the cashier when making your first deposit
You will claim the bonus from the deposit site, so you do not have to make up your mind right now, but it is always good to come prepared so let us go through each alternative briefly.
- 100% on £250 on all games (weight applies for turnover) – 30x wagering req.
- 100% up to £100 on most non-live games (weight applies for turnover) – 45x wagering req.
- 100% up to £100 for use in the live casino only – 50x wagering req.
Full terms and conditions will apply, and can be found at Betfair after you have signed up.

100% up to £250
Optimal deposit: £250. Deposits made with e-wallets (Paypal, Neteller, Moneybookers etc.) are not valid for this promotion.
100% matched up to £100
For small and medium sized budgets - £10 to £100 - there is a bonus available that will double the fun. Simply claim it from the cashier and make a deposit of at least £10 to receive an equal amount on your bonus balance up to £100. This bonus needs to be turned over 45 times to unlock it from the bonus balance.
Only video slots from Playtech without (double feature) and scratch cards count 100% towards the wagering requirement so do not pick this bonus unless you plan to play mostly those types of casino games. See exact game weighting on the site.
Deposit exactly £250 and get £250 extra
The most flexible in terms of what you are allowed to play is also the biggest bonus option measured in absolute value, while also sporting the smallest wagering requirement. It does require a rather big deposit though so take that into account before you go for this casino bonus. Games are counted as follows towards the 30x wagering requirement which also has to be fulfilled within 7 days;
- Slots (Excluding double options) - 100%
- Roulette (All including Live Roulette) - 50%
- Blackjack (All including Live Blackjack) - 50%
Live Casino Bonus
The bonus that is dedicated to Betfair’s live casino (which is supplied by Playtech) is a 100% match up to £100 that can only be used live roulette and live blackjack. The bonus amount needs to be wagered 50 times before it can be cashed out, and you will use your own deposited funds before digging into the bonus. Some limits on betting patterns and bet sizes apply. For instance you are not allowed to bet on both red and black in order to simply turn over your bonus. Betting more than 30% of the received bonus is also not allowed.
For more examples of what is not allowed consult the terms and conditions.
