Unbiased Lists & Research

Sportsbook review sites tend to to list every company that they have researched.  In essence, the review sites are simply hoping to trade on a brand name, that you’ll recognize a name or logo and click through to start playing. I’m not interested in that approach.

If a company fails to meet my standards, they do not warrant inclusion in my lists.  I examine each service with regard to their reputation, record of fairness (cancelled bets), timely & free withdrawals, the number of available  banking methods, use of secure technology, use of advanced technology for mobile and live betting in-play.  

Above all of this, I want to make sure the sportsbook pays proper attention to rugby as other sports get far more.  Rugby fans want to be able to log on and view the odds for next big match so they can place their bet.  Each listed site ensures this is possible for their players.  As a result of the above criteria, you might notice some famous brands are missing as they fail to pay rugby the proper attention.

About the order of each list

I do not rank sportsbooks in order of any preference.  They are listed in alphabetical order with numbers ordered after letters.  I would be extremely comfortable registering and betting on rugby with any of these companies, however there are differences in their offerings.

Read the brief summaries, browse by country, by currency and read the reviews to see what is right for you.  I also provide some helpful articles under the ‘more resources’ header in the navigation bar to provide some direction if you’re not sure how to begin.  

Known mainly for high paying football odds, BetVictor also offers quality odds and perhaps the widest set of rugby betting markets.  With an excellent mobile wagering platform with live betting , they are an excellent option for the English rugby fan.  Read the BetVictor rugby review

Pinnacle goes against the typical sportsbook model.  They have no signup bonus and avoid the less popular rugby betting markets.  However, for fans that only care about match result betting, Pinnacle consistently offers some of the highest paying odds available.  Pinnacle’s clients don’t care about bonuses as they bet large amounts so better odds mean more.   Read the Pinnacle Sports rugby

In our opinion, since 2000, bet365 has become one of the biggest names in the sportsbook business. Why?  They offer the best mobile and in-play betting platforms.  And critical to rugby fans, they offer coverage of every Rugby League and Rugby Union match with a massive array of betting markets.
