While Vernons’ arrival on the online betting market might have been a relatively recent one, the name has been an established part of the UK’s gambling industry ever since 1925. Having started out as a football pools business, Vernons has now made the successful move into the online betting area, having been sold to Netplay TV plc Group in 2013. Hoping to use its reputation and credentials from its football pools days to establish itself in the online betting industry, Vernons has made a strong start to life online and the early signs are positive.
Catering to a wide selection of sports fans, Vernons also offers something to those looking to play bingo, online casino games and other betting games. With the amount of sporting bets on offer, the impressive casino entertainment and daily offers and promotions, Vernons has become a popular choice with punters across the world. And the operator doesn’t just do the basics well, it also allows members to bet on a number of different aspects of an event, using the in-play function to give punters the chance to make wagers during the action.
Unsurprisingly, it is football where Vernons really excels. It covers games from all over the world, with all the different betting options you’d expect from a modern online bookmaker. As well as football, you will also find all the traditional sports that punters like to bet on, as well as some of those more alternative sports, such as Aussie Rules, handball, darts and even politics and entertainment.
At this early stage in Vernons’ time online, many people have been attracted to the operator due to their attractive offers and promotions. From the £25 welcome bonus when you sign-up and deposit a minimum of £5 to the accumulator cashback, there is a plenitude of promotions to keep you interested.
Vernons have enjoyed a lot of success since their arrival on the market due to the slick virtual platform they have put together for their members. Not only is it one of the easiest sites to navigate, all the sports and casino options are clearly labelled and the clean look of the pages make it easy to find your way around. Finding the best odds and acting quickly is what punters look for when trying out new operators. Vernons have ensured they haven’t fallen down in this area.
While Vernons haven’t yet added any live streaming options, there are enough functions to make sure you don’t miss any of the action. Next to the sports section of the menu bar is the in-play platform, providing punters the option of viewing all those events going on at that particular time. In the sports section, Vernons boast an extensive list of sporting options coming up, allowing punters to get their bets in early on upcoming events.
The Sports Menu
Having a sleek and easy-to-use platform wouldn’t mean much if it wasn’t stocked with an extensive selection of sports. Fortunately for the online betting world, Vernons has backed up the good looks with plenty of substance, offering its members as wide a variety of sports as many of the more established names in the industry. While the operator covers a number of those alternative sports, such as beach volleyball, darts and snooker, it’s the big sports where members are really going to enjoy themselves.
In the online gambling world, the more options an operator can offer its members, whether it is in terms of sports or betting options, the more chance the punter has to win. Whether it’s the more obvious bets such as match winner or final score, or those more specialist wagers like the amount of throw-ins and fouls made, Vernons hasn’t held back in providing punters with a heaving platter of options. By having a stake in almost every sports market, Vernons is able to provide enough buzz and interest in its platform in order to attract new visitors.
The Tech Wizardry
To round off their solid betting interface, there are a number of other interesting aspects to the Vernons platform. As well as the daily statistics, quick bets and the regular specials, the operator has made a real push across all the social media platforms. In terms of keeping the public up-to-date with all the latest offers and events, Vernons have realised the importance of giving their members the chance to take advantage.
The statistics section offers members a huge selection of different sporting stats to research before making a bet. From the standings in the Premier League to the upcoming matches in badminton, there is everything a punter needs to make an educated decision behind which way to bet. It’s somewhat surprising to see such a font of information somewhat hidden away below the list of sports.
While Vernons is yet to launch a mobile app, punters can access the platform through their browser with a host of mobile devices. The mobile platform is compatible with popular devices powered by Apple iOS or Android, running seamlessly and allowing bets to be placed anywhere, and at any time.
Vernons Bonuses Bargains
In order to stand-out in the world of online betting, Vernons has placed a lot of emphasis on attracting visitors with the help of some very tempting offers and bonuses. All new customers are welcomed to the operator with a £25 bonus when depositing £5, with a free bet token if the first settled bet loses. Your free bet bonus will only appear in your account once a settlement of your first qualifying losing bet. However, it’s important to remember if you win on your first bet you will not get this free bet bonus.
You’ll find a number of different promotions and offers all over the platform. From the money back offer if your horse finishes second in a certain race with a shorter starting price than the winner, Vernons refund the stake with a free bet up to the value of £50. And it doesn’t end there, with some fantastic promotions for those betting on tennis, golf, greyhound racing and rugby union.
