If you make yourself familiar with every pink and blue box, you’ll realize why Betfair is a completely different story from any other traditional bookie. The most famous betting exchange operator, Betfair has been in the industry since 1999 and have been the pioneers of a great number of services that almost all reliable bookies offer today. These include live streaming, cash out and many more. As a betting exchange they allow every bettor to act like a bookie himself and lay bets instead of only backing them. However their bonus policy is slim and perhaps could see an impovement.

Bookmaker Profile

Betfair is one of the world’s best known bookmakers due to the fact that they are completely different from the other betting companies. Over the years, BF has become a popular betting exchange operator, while they also offer the services of a typical bookmaker. They are a part of the Paddy Power Betfair plc and begun offering their sportsbook in 1999. After their first successful year, they made their passage to the online markets and quickly found themselves at the top of the betting industry whilst having earned the respect of thousands of punters. Their largest revenues come from the UK market, but they do have dedicated players in Italy and Spain as well.

What is sure to excite every bettor, is the huge variety of offered sports and markets. Many alternative bets and events are available, while Betfair has also become the first choice of horse races bettors. There are other important factors that separate Betfair from any run of the mill bookies. Only Beftair will allow you to act as a bookie, as well as take the chance to sell or to trade your bets and do tons of other things. You might be wandering what does “act as a bookie” mean. It is the fact that Betfair operates as a marketplace or a stock exchange. A member will set the odds at  which he wishes to buy a selection (i.e. a home win @ 2.00 odds) and if other players consider the odds profitable, they will counter his prediction by buying the exact opposite market (draw or away win @ 2.00 odds). This enables the user to act as both the punter and bookmaker. What is also very important, is the fact that there are not any betting limits and you can also sell your bets to other punters in order to guarantee your winnings. If you are a more experienced trader you can use certain advanced software that will trade your bets for you. Moreover, BF offers the best tournament winner and correct score odds, given that the commission is often, one third less compared to other bookmakers.

Of course, some of the most useful services, such us cash out and live streaming (you have the chance to watch full horse races), are available at Betfair’s sportsbook and the Betfair exchange app. The most common payment methods for deposits and cash-outs are accepted. Transactions can be made using credit cards, Neteller, Skrill, Clickandbuy, PayPal and many more. Deposits are free of charge on most of these methods while the same applies for withdrawals. If you like to wager on other events than sports betting, you can find a multitude of casino, poker, arcade games, bingo and exchange games here as well. In addition, they offer a 30€ welcome bonus, if you place a bet of 10€, or you can choose a 20€ free bet in exchange.

Of course, a betting operator of this size can be expected to have some equally important partnerships. The most recent, is the official sponsorship of Serie A giants Juventus. They also sponsor Barcelone, Arsenal, Leicester, Sunderland & Southampton and also share a partnership with the Prizefighter boxing series and the European Backgammon Tour.
