Review : Vernons


VERNONS have been a brand synonymous with leisure and gaming for almost a century in the UK. They were one of the main providers of the hugely-popular football pools in the country and now they’ve branched into other gaming products.

Casino, Games and Bingo are key parts of the Vernons product, but we’ll concentrate on their sports betting offering. While the site lacks the slickness and modernity of the likes of Bet365 and William Hill, it is tidy and easy to use. The left-hand navigation bars which list all sports and key links is very useful.

Vernons are keen on offering promotions to lure existing customers. Their main offer is an accumulator refund where they promise to pay back customers whose accumulator falls one leg short. This counts for bets with selections between five and 10 picks. They also refund losing First Goalscorer bets in Premier League and Champions League matches where the result is a score draw. It’s a nice touch.

Their sign-up offer is fairly competitive, and their near 100-year history in the UK gives you the protection that Vernons are a trusted brand who take customer service seriously. Do yourself a favour and add them to your betting portfolio.
