Betfair is another giant in the online betting scene. This UK based company has more than 4 million users and operates under a Gibraltar license. Exchange betting seems to be its most attractive feature. Exchange betting pits gamblers against each other instead of against the house which shakes up the dynamics of a traditional betting venue.
While traditional sports book betting is available, exchange betting is the most popular feature of this site. Exchange betting is a far less well-known form of gambling, but for those interested in the details of this type of gaming, Betfair offers a guide on their website. It may seem like common sense to have this sort of guide available to patrons when your site is known for it, but it is convenient that Betfair provides this information and shows that they think and care about their customers.
Betfair isn’t playing around in the least when it come to their sign up bonuses. Instead of having a whole bunch of limitations around when rewards can be earned, Betfair makes the reasonable and shared restriction on odds. These must be greater than 1/5. Once that stipulation is met, the code ZSK200 will allow you to earn £30 in free bets when you bet £10 on sign-up.
They can only be used in singles and are often paid out in £10 increments. It also has a rewards program. By referring friends to the site, you earn a £/€25 free bet with the ‘Refer and Earn’ compensation program.
Betfair appears to offer a myriad of offers throughout the year for sign up bonuses. Twitter seems to be the best way to learn about these offers, so it may be best to follow them for a while to take advantage of the best available bonus. Aside from the referral program, Bet365 seems to lack a frequent users program, but that may not bother some customers.
Betfair shines in their sports betting options. They propound the rare option of exchange betting with the benefit of also offering traditional sports betting which could strike a balance that many will find attractive. The site is polished but no more so than any other online site.
The color choice is a bit distracting as the overall colors appear to be yellow and black but splashes of blue break it up rather jarringly. The layout of the website is easy to follow, but they do tend to focus on sports book bets. If the variation is your preference, Betfair will probably fall short of expectations.
In the customer service sector, Betfair seems to fair decently. Their contact us directory appears to be comprehensive with a variety of options. If you ever have an issue crop up, support is available seven days from 7:30 am to 12:30 am. Live chat and email are also available. They even round out this offering with their physical address. This seems strange in the era of the internet, but some older gamblers may find this to be a quaint and attractive quirk.
