VISIT BETFAIR

The mac daddy of online betting. Good brand, good technology, great user base and some amazing offers. Get started with a free bet here.

Before we get started reviewing Betfair, there is one import thing to point out.

As far as we are concerned they are the default bookie offering pretty much everything one could need to satisfy their gambling needs (or wants).

With the exception of sports spread betting, for that you need to go to Spreadex or Sporting Index.

So what makes Betfair so great?

Firstly, they are the pioneers of disrupting the online gambling market by offering peer to peer betting rather than betting against the house.

This means that when you bet on Betfair you are betting against other gamblers who are laying bets. So it feels more like a sport than just chucking cash at a traditional bookie who wants you to lose.

Because of this you get better odds as individuals set the price.

So in outright bets you can win significantly more. If you're interested to see how much more take a look at this video that new betting exchange Smarkets put up showing how much more you can win by using a betting exchange

my opinion

Betfair is undoubtedly the best home and sports bag in the world, my experiences have always been of apredizado and sastifação. At the moment we are only having a small problem with the neteller withdrawals that departing from the country NETELLER will no longer be attending, however, betfair has already announced that the problem is already being solved. very good !!!!
