About VirginBet

The UK facing version of VirginBet has been around since 2019 as an app and website, and was launched as a joint enterprise between Gamesys and sports betting supplier SBTech.  Although both bear the Virgin branding, VirginBet is not to be confused with the Gamesys site Virgin Games which has a different licence and no sportsbook.

At VirginBet, the sportsbook is run by LiveScore Group with the Virgin branding used under licence from Virgin Enterprises Limited, and only the casino part of the site is run by Gamesys.   Essentially, it’s an excellent sportsbook with a casino and live casino attached, but the number and variety of games on offer make the casino an attractive proposition even if you’re not interested in the sportsbook.  If you ARE interested in the sportsbook, it’s even more attractive as there are promotions that combine both products.

Getting Started At VirginBet

Registration at VirginBet is a simple three step process.  They’ve also taken the trouble to remind players that they should register with the first and last name shown on their official ID.  This may sound trivial but it isn’t; for example, if everyone calls you Ben but your ID shows Benjamin, you need to register as Benjamin, and if you’ve changed your surname on your passport and bank accounts following marriage but use your original surname for professional purposes, you need to register with the surname on your official ID. This is for ID and age verification purposes.

Games At VirginBet

In the casino part of the VirginBet site, there’s hundreds of slot games, and quite a bit of game categorisation to help you find something you’d enjoy playing (and of course you can also use the search box to find games by name).

  • The Virgin Bet Selects tab presents a mixture of hot new releases (Immortal Romance II and Sweet Bonanza 1000 when we visited in June 2024), classics (e.g. Fishin’ Frenzy The Big Catch) and various Double Bubble and Secrets of the Phoenix games.
  • The UK Favourites tab has more classics, including Eye of Horus, 9 Pots of Gold, Starburst and several Big Bass games.
  • The Featured Supplier tab showcases games from a single provider.
  • The New tab has recently added back catalogue games as well as the latest releases.
  • The Original and Exclusive tab has a selection of less well known games.
  • The Hot Slots tab has another batch of popular slots including Bonanza and yet more Fishin’ Frenzy and Big Bass games.
  • The Pub Fruits tab is for the eponymous range of games by Blueprint.
  • The Megaways and Jackpots tabs are self explanatory; there’s more than 75 jackpot slots including Jackpot King, IGT Megajackpots, WowPots and Gamesys jackpots such as  Tiki Island, Around the Reels in 80 Wilds and Legendary Jackpots.

The casino area also has tabs for (non live dealer) roulette (including novelty versions such as Immortal Romance Roulette and Space Invaders Roulette) and blackjack.  In both cases there’s a Secrets of the Phoenix themed version.

Rounding the selection off are a few scratchcards and virtual sports including golf and darts as well as the more usual horses, greyhounds, cars and football.

The live casino has its own lobby which can be accessed from a tab in the casino lobby as well as from the main menu.  There’s live dealer roulette, blackjack (including exclusive tables), baccarat, video poker and game shows by Evolution, plus first person (no dealer) versions of some of the games, Real Roulette (which is actually video of a live dealer spliced into RNG roulette) and a few classic casino games.

Other Things To Consider

There’s a free daily game at VirginBet called Search for the Phoenix (which you may have come across before at Gamesys sites).  It can be found in the casino area and can be played by anyone who’s made at least one deposit and been age verified.  The game runs on a weekly cycle; each day, you reveal 6 tiles on the grid and the aim is to collect sets of matching symbols over the week to win free spins on the Secrets of the Phoenix slot game (which was originally a Virgin exclusive).

The promotions page at VirginBet is packed with offers, many awarding play with free bets or free spins.  There’s also prize draws, tournaments and price guarantees on sports bets and it looks like there’s always plenty going on.

There’s a VirginBet app for Apple and Android, with fingerprint recognition, but we understand it to be for the sportsbook only.

Payment methods are fairly restricted; although they accept PayPal, it’s not available on first deposits so to start with, you’re going to need to use a debit card.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for an online casino and sportsbook combo and like your free spins to come without wagering requirements, VirginBet with its excellent range of games and promotions could be just the thing.
