Betting Products & Features

As a local bookmaker, it’s little surprise that the primary sports are horse racing and football. However, Corbett offers markets on plenty of international action, too. Let’s take a closer look at what you’ll find here.

Horse Racing at Corbett Sports

In addition to offering horse racing from the UK and Ireland, there’s a healthy selection of international race cards from the USA, France, and South Africa, among other countries.

The layout of the website is basic, but it serves its purpose. Finding the meeting and the race you want only takes a few clicks. Punters have the choice of a range of betting options, including:

  • Win or Each-Way
  • Forecast: straight or reverse
  • Exacta
  • Trifecta
    1. Corbett Sports horse racing also offers Best Odds Guaranteed on UK and Irish races. This only applies after 10AM, however. On the downside, we couldn’t see any Tote betting, and the website doesn’t offer any form guides to help punters with the racing picks.

      Football Betting

      There are three tabs in the menu related to football. The first is football matches, which lists various leagues and fixtures. As for market depth, unfortunately, it’s rather sparse at the moment. At the time of writing, today’s German Bundesliga games each had 16 betting markets, such as:

    2. Match Result
    3. BTTS
    4. Win & BTTS
    5. Match Handicap
    6. Double Result (HT/FT)
    7. First/Anytime Goalscorer
    8. Total Goals O/U
    9. Team to Score First Goal
    10. Goal in Both Halves
      1. The next tab is football leagues. This boasts a series of outright markets from the UK, Europe, and International. For example, the Premier League, you can bet on outright winner, top 4 finish, top 6 finish, golden boot, team to finish bottom, and the next manager to leave/be sacked, to name a few. Lastly, there is a goals and specials tab. This displays all of the markets with boosted odds, so it’s well worth taking a look to see what value bets are available at Corbett Sports.

        Betting Margins

        Speaking of value, as part of our Corbett Sports review, we look at the margins to see what cut this bookmaker is taking.

          Bundesliga [1X2 market] – Odds: 6.00 | 4.50 | 1.44 = 8.32% margin
          Bundesliga [BTTS market] – Odds: 1.67 | 2.10 = 7.49% margin
          Belarusian Premier League [1X2 market] – Odds: 5.50 | 3.50 | 1.53 = 12.10% margin
          Belarusian Premier League [O/U 1.5 goals market] – Odds: 3.25 | 1.33 = 5.94% margin
          07 June 2020 Overall average margin: 8.46%

        This is only a small sample, the events chosen were at random, so we feel this is a solid reflection of Corbett Sports margins in general. Clearly, there is better value in some markets but not others. It should be noted that there isn’t too much sporting action due to the coronavirus, which is why we only compared these football markets.

        Maximum Winning Limits

        The following are some of the daily win limits and betting rules imposed by this bookmaker:

      2. UK and Ireland horse racing (full SIS service) – £100,000
      3. International horse racing (full SIS service) – £25,000
      4. Best Odds Guaranteed only applies on single bets up to £200 stake. For doubles and trebles the max stake is £100, and for system bets the maximum is £5 unit stake.
      5. The maximum payout for football and golf bets is £50,000 per day, regardless of the total stake value.
      6. For darts, cycling, boxing, NFL, cricket, snooker, rugby, tennis, and basketball, the maximum payout is £10,000 per day.
        1. Corbett Sports Mobile App

          Currently, there isn’t a native Corbett Sports app. Therefore, mobile bettors must used the web-based platform. Once again, it’s relatively simple, but still effective.

          Live Betting & Streaming

          It doesn’t appear as though Corbett Sports provides any live streaming. If this changes in the future, we’ll let you know. As for in-play betting, it is limited. However, as stressed with the betting margins, this Corbett Sports review is during the pandemic, and there is hardly any UK sports happening right now. Therefore, it is unfair to judge the live performance of this site at this present time.

          Payment Methods

          The payment methods are limited but Corbett Sports is only available to UK punters. Therefore, as long as you have a debit card or just a bank account, you won't have any issues getting your cash in, and your winnings out.

        2. The minimum deposit amount is £5
        3. The maximum deposit in a single transaction is £500
        4. The minimum withdrawal amount is £5
        5. The maximum daily withdrawal limit is £9999
        6. Corbett Sports doesn't charge any transaction fees for UK debit card deposits.
          1. Deposit Methods

            Debit Cards
            Wire Transfer

            Withdrawal Methods

            Debit Cards
            Wire Transfer

            Customer Service

            Independent bookmakers tend to stand out from the crowd because of their customer service. Unlike many of the larger betting sites, they are not a faceless corporation. Having checked several Corbett Sports reviews on Google (for its retail shops), the main theme is how friendly and helpful the staff are. If this level of service and support is maintained online, Corbett Sports will develop a loyal band of punters.

            You can reach out with any queries you may have to via:

          2. Live chat: Available during office hours. Link on platform
          3. Telephone: 0800-056-8621
          4. Email: [email protected]
            1. Other Corbett Sports Products

              In addition to sports betting, Corbett offers an online casino powered by Microgaming, among other developers. Also, there is lotto betting, which includes the Irish Lotto, Canadian Lotto, Polish Lotto, and Daily 49’s, to name a few.

              Something that is unique to Corbett Sports is that it provides a bet auction service (run by BetSold). This allows you to buy and sell bets with other customers.

              Bonuses

              To be honest, there aren’t many bonuses and promotions available at the moment.

                Best Odd Guaranteed: All UK and Ireland horse racing.
                Best Odd Guaranteed: All UK and Ireland greyhounds.
                Daily Specials: Enhanced odds across a range of sports and markets.
