BetHard, one of the newer operators on the Irish sports betting scene, claims that Winners Dare More. Well, there is plenty to dare here, with 29 sports on offer as well as Esports and a large selection of Fantasy sports, including tournaments, plus additional features. It’s a striking site, and one we were eager to dive into to check out the BetHard betting experience. Here we bring you the details of all we found, including all our BetHard tips for using this operator.

BetHard Strengths and Weaknesses

The best way to sum up any review is with a list of an operator’s relative strengths and weaknesses. Here’s what we liked, and not, about BetHard.

BetHard Strengths

  • A good variety of sports (29 in all) with live betting options across all of those and fast markets offered on football
  • A strong Esports and fantasy sports offering, with live streaming on the former and tournaments on the latter
  • A solid sign-up offer, plus cash out offered on undecided bets and a couple of other features
  • The full accompaniment of banking, customer support and security options

BetHard Weaknesses

  • A lack of bonuses and promotions
  • No live streaming, other than on Esports
  • No horse racing or greyhounds
  • A lack of real features


Limited. That has to be the conclusion when it comes to the BetHard betting experience. What is there is pretty good, but you’d find so much more on many sports betting sites.

BetHard Full Review

BetHard is certainly a lesser-known bookmaker in Ireland but has actually been on the scene since 2012. But it is really only having been taken over by Prozone Limited in 2021 that it has started to make its mark.

It kicks off with a pretty standard welcome bonus: a first deposit matched bonus up to €50. Yet there are some pretty stringent terms and conditions on that BetHard bonus. And once you’re in, there are no real other BetHard bonuses to speak of.

The sports coverage is pretty decent. There are 29 sports on offer, including the big boys of football, tennis and basketball, and sports popular in Ireland such as GAA and rugby. Notable missing sports are horse racing and greyhounds. Outside of conventional sports there are loads of Esports and fantasy sports on offer.

Market coverage amongst sports is pretty good, and the live betting markets stack up too, with loads of options on the likes of football. With BetHard you can cash out early, although this is only full cash out. There are no real additional features to speak of, with no bet builders for example. The only live streaming available is for Esports, and there is a fast markets option on football.  

When it comes to banking and customer support, things are good. There are loads of deposit and withdrawal options, including all of the most popular, including PayPal. Payment times are good, and customer support is solid enough with email and live chat. Security appears first rate, and there are dedicated apps for iOS and Android.

In terms of complaints, the only real major gripe is the limited nature of features and bonuses. If you’re not really fussed about such features, you’ll be happy enough with BetHard, which is clearly a professional and well-run operator. But you can definitely get more elsewhere. 

Is BetHard legal in Ireland?

It’s always a good idea to openly ask the question: is this bookmaker legal to play in my country. Often there are country restrictions in place. However, when it comes to BetHard Ireland, there’s no need to worry for Ireland-based punters. BetHard is licenced and regulated in Malta under the Malta Gaming Authority. But it also has a remote sportsbook licence to operate in Ireland, issued by the Revenue Commissioners in Ireland.

BetHard Best Sports Features

BetHard is not deep on features. However, there are a few things here to keep players interested. We take the opportunity to run through those BetHard features:

  • BetHard cashout

Any bookmaker worth its salt these days absolutely must offer the cash out early option on undecided bets. BetHard doesn’t let us down, but only full cash-out is available, with no automatic, partial or alternative offerings

  • BetHard live streaming

BetHard does offer live streaming on Esports, but that’s it! The lack of streaming on traditional sports is a downer

  • BetHard fantasy sports

One aspect BetHard prides itself on is the fantasy sport package. Indeed, there is a dedicated tab which goes into all the details of tournaments and other related features

  • BetHard stats and results

Select the results tab and then search the parameters to get recent sports results, or click on the statistics tab to avail of numbers as provided by Sportsradar

  • BetHard fast markets

Bet on a certain outcome in the next 1 minute or 5 minutes of a live football match

BetHard App

BetHard offers dedicated mobile apps for both iOS and Android users. There are available at the Apple Store, Google store or any other major app vendor.

The BetHard apps offer every service and feature as offered by the mobile site, including live betting and streaming of Esports. Please note the desktop site also works well on mobile. 

Mobile app promotions

There are no additional promotions offered by BetHard apps.

BetHard Banking Options

BetHard certainly does offer a great selection of banking deposit and withdrawal options. The options are: Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Skrill, PayPal, Trustly, AstroPay, MuchBetter, Neosurf, MiFinity, PaySafe card.

Withdrawal times and minimum amounts are standard here, so no disappointments. 

BetHard Customer Support

BetHard has a dedicated customer support email address ([email protected]) and also offers 24/7 live chat, where response times are good. There is no dedicated phone number provided, however, and the FAQs are not particularly well stocked.
