Vernons Sports Review

Felicity Kay

One of the best things about Vernons is that they are a very well-respected brand, having been around as a business since 1925. The website has been around since 2007 and they are part of a major gaming network, which certainly adds to their financial stability. The sportsbook itself allows players the chance to wager on a huge number of games and a wide variety of sports. This even includes live, in-play wagering offers.

Software & Graphics

The software used by the Vernons Sports site is PlayTech, which is a very well-known and respected brand and leader in this industry. It is primarily responsible for giving the site a strong and stable platform. Players will find the sportsbook very smooth and able to use. Granted, graphics are not much needed for a sports book, but the site does have a nice structure to it and there is no evidence of any type of slowdown, with wagers posting almost immediately.

Bonuses & Promos

The initial bonus offered by Vernons Sports is a £25 free bet offer. Simply make your first deposit and wager. If that wager loses, you will then receive a free wager, up to £25 (based on that initial deposit). There are also tonnes of other promotions and cash back offers, which will vary based upon your first wager and desired sport. This includes specials for rugby, tennis, cricket, football and even horse racing. There is also a £200 bonus available for those interested in playing at the casino.


There are tonnes of sports offered at Venrons for players to use in their wagering. If you have a favourite, then you are highly likely to find it here. These include football (even American) horse racing, tennis, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, golf, ice hockey, volleyball, and cycling. Of course, there is more, like motor sports, darts, snooker and MMA. Punters also have the option of wagering on entertainment, political contests and even poker events and tournaments.


Obtaining support and help at Vernon's Sports is very easy, with all the traditional options. You may send the company an email, which will be answered fairly quickly. There is also a toll free phone number available, making it possible to contact the company directly for an even faster response. Or, you may engage the support staff in an online chat session for an even more immediate response. The site also has rules and terms pages, along with a number of FAQs.

Extra value

One of the best things about this site is the fact that they offer live, in-play wagering. The wagering calendar is also a nice feature, allowing players the option to plan out their schedule. Make your wagers by viewing the site in either decimal or odds format. For those looking to take a break from sports, they do have an online casino along with a bingo section. You may even play these games on your mobile device. The site even updates the scores of the games in real time.

General Info

The Vernons site is rather easy to use. There is no clumsy or messy software that needs to be downloaded or installed. Better still, the links all work and everything is very intuitive in terms of its use. There is also no software download required, so people can play here regardless of their type of computer (PC and Mac).

Deposits/ Withdrawal Options

The main function of any gaming or wagering site is to transfer money. To this end, Vernon's has made it easy to make deposits and take withdrawals, using the following (among others) options:

  • Visa, MasterCard, Electron, Debit, Maestro

  • NeTeller

  • Skrill

Payout Policy

When taking a payout, you simply need to visit the cashier in your back office and request the amount of the payout you would like to remove. This then needs to be approved by the site itself, which normally takes 24 to 48 hours. You may also need to confirm your identity, which is a simple process of sending or emailing over some additional documents (this would only occur during your first payout).

Pros and Cons

Vernons has a lot going for it. They have a huge number of sports and different types of wagers. The live, in-play wagering is a nice feature and so is the wagering calendar. The interface itself could have a different and better color scheme, but this is only a minor drawback and the site does work very well.
