Betfair Casino Review
Betfair's casino gets a thorough look-over
Betfair will probably be best known to you for its industry leading sports betting products. However, as the organisation has continued to expand, it has also diversified and has offered an impressive online casino for some years now. Betfair have gone about this in the best way possible - by using the same fantastic customer service that they offer for all their products, as well as bringing in casino expertise in the form of software provider Playtech. As Betfair pride themselves as being at the forefront of the latest gambling technology, you can be sure if there's a new game, tournament or platform then it's likely to found here.

Highs and Lows
- There's now loads of casino games available with new table games and slots being added regularly.
- The Betfair Casino Zero Lounge - enough said!
- Part of us still misses the old Betfair software quirks, but who could complain at the impressive Playtech software.
Betfair made the switch to Playtech software in 2009 and their players haven't looked back since. There are now more than 200 casino games available at Betfair Casino including the Zero Lounge. The Betfair Zero Lounge is somewhat of a hidden gem in the online casino world and is so beneficial to players that Betfair don’t even bother to publicise it. If you haven't heard of the Betfair Zero Lounge then it's certainly time that you find out more. It offers players the chance to enjoy blackjack, baccarat, roulette and video poker with absolutely no house edge - somewhat of a rarity in any kind of casino!
First time players benefit from a £200 welcome bonus or if you're a big spender, a £500 bonus for VIP customers. Speaking of VIP, that's another thing that Betfair casino does very well – the Betfair Casino VIP Club. This club provides players with entry to exclusive events, a personal account manager and 250,000 or more comp points.
Hopefully, this review has given you an idea of whether Betfair casino is for you. If you've still yet to make your mind up, we've focused on some aspects of the casino in more detail below. If you're going to get playing in Betfair casino, we recommend that you do as soon as possible, because the Zero Lounge really isn't going to be around forever!
There are more than 200 Playtech casino games waiting for you to try out at Betfair casino. While picking out every game that's impressed us would take far too long, we have managed to highlight some particular favourites. One of these is The Incredible Hulk slot which includes a smash bonus, free spins, expanding wild symbol and a multi-level progressive Marvel Jackpot. Another slot of note is one for the football fans - Manchester United is bound to excite followers of the Red Devils, as well as handing out up to 10,000 times your line bet. Unfortunately for Man City fans though, there doesn't seem to be a Sky Blues alternative in the pipeline!
The increase in the amount of games available has also created greater variety. Live dealer games, progressive jackpots, Asian games, arcade games and many, many more are now available to players at Betfair Casino. Once again, we can't emphasise enough how worthwhile the Zero Lounge is, so if you're looking to play blackjack, baccarat, roulette or video poker, that's definitely the place to go.
New players at Betfair Casino can take advantage of a £200 welcome bonus. Regular players are also treated to bonuses and promotions, including monthly bonuses, which usually increase the more you play at the casino. One feature that we particularly liked is the Betfair's refer and earn scheme. This means that by getting your pals to sign up and play at Betfair Casino, you could earn £50 immediately and up to £2,000 every quarter.
Also on offer are comp points which, once you've accrued a certain amount, can be converted into cash to use in the casino. Finally, makesure you keep an eye out for some of Betfair Casino's seasonal promotions. At the time of writing there were a number of special bonuses being offered to players wagering on slots, blackjack and roulette.
Betfair's VIP Club is also worth checking out. Among other benefits, Betfair are able to use their place in the sporting world to offer VIP players all expenses paid trips to a variety of sporting events such as Royal Ascot and Manchester United football matches. This is one area where Betfair casino certainly outdoes its competitors.
Betfair are yet to get around to launching a mobile casino product. However, given that they tend to be a technologically savvy organisation, we imagine that it won’t be long until Betfair's reels are spinning on a number of mobile devices.
Betfair's instant play casino has to be one of the easiest to play that we've come across. The selection of instant casino games can be viewed on the Betfair Casino website and amount to just less than 150. These games consist of table games, video poker, scratch cards, card games, arcade games and of course slots.
In order to play one of them, simply select the game you want and click on it. You even have the option of bookmarking games to a list of your favourites, which can be found on a special page. This makes playing your favourite instant casino games an even quicker process and is a feature that we're very impressed with.
