Top New Irish Betting Sites for 2024
Despite the sheer number of betting sites that are seemingly cropping up every day, the truth is that there are actually still considerable areas of the market to be properly filled. Keeping up to date with new betting sites is always a good idea, and though there are many that aren’t worth your time, keeping on the lookout for the ones that are is always good advice.
There are a few important features you need to look for in a new betting site, and they’re not quite the same as what you might look for in more well-established sites. It’s real bread-and-butter stuff, in a lot of ways, so let’s get into it.
When it comes to a new site, you’ve got to be careful of being roped in by attractive welcome offers. These welcome bonuses are great and you should make use of them, but the problem is that you don’t want to end up with funds locked up in a new betting site with very little support.
Customer support should be available 24/7, whether through a live chat service or over the phone. If something goes wrong, you’re going to want to get it resolved as quickly as you can.
With big, established sites, this isn’t typically a problem. Newer sites are less likely to have robust support, so be aware of this before you go ahead and sign up.
The other fundamental thing you’re going to want to look is how well the site functions on a technical level. Even if you are not technically minded at all, you’ll notice if the site is slow, it constantly crashes, freezes, or glitches in any way.
In the worst case, you might even access to your account with funds locked up inside. Technical glitches can be seriously dire if the site isn’t professionally built—one RBS glitch saw over 600,000 payments vanish overnight.
So, though you will ultimately be able to claim recompense for any funds you lose due to a glitch, you’ll have to spend time doing that. It really pays to take the time to make sure new betting sites score highly for functionality.
Of course, support and technical matters are not the only thing to consider with new sites. As I say, this is really just the bread-and-butter stuff that you will need to double check with new sites, that you might not with other, bigger sites.
Once you’re sure the site is functional and has robust support, then look at the markets it offers. Depending on what kind of bettor you are, you may be looking for one specific market or a wide range.
Irish betting markets are wide and varied. You’ll often get a lot of the best promotions by looking for the biggest markets—Gaelic football, for example, is the most popular sport in the country. But you might get more out of betting on something more niche. Either way, you need to know that the site offers that betting market, and that it offers good odds on that market.
Odds are the things you’re going to want to compare most closely in this matter.
So, there are a lot of factors that go into how effective and useful a particular betting site is, compared with its competitors. Reviewing all of these factors and features can be daunting, not to mention time consuming. The best advice we can give, then, is to look out for these fundamental things, take some time with the site, and ultimately decide that way if it’s for you. But don’t just rush in headlong.
