What is a matched bet & how does it work?

The €5 matched bet is essentially a free €5 to bet with BoyleSports who will match your €5. If you place a €5 bet then it becomes a €10 bet. These matched bets can only be used in BoyleSports in Gowran Park which is located on the ground floor beside the Thyestes Bar.
