At first, Matchbook was introduced as a betting exchange for American players. The turning point came in 2012 when it aimed at becoming a global brand, with fresh faces in charge and the company’s relocation to Europe. Since then, it has managed to become one of Betfair’s top competitors. The Commission rates are very low and, unlike Betfair, no Premium Charge exists. There is a wide variety of markets pre-match; I particularly enjoyed the Asian Handicaps at hand. The winning limits are also relatively high and the liquidity is excellent in the top football leagues and North American sports. However, the exchange is far from perfect. The liquidity drops considerably during live betting. There are considerably fewer sports and betting options to choose from, especially in horse and greyhound racing. Customer Support is not accessible 24/7 and you can use less than ten methods to perform payments. If you are looking for a Betfair alternative that offers lower Commission, then Matchbook is an excellent option.
