Betfair Review and Rating


Andrew Black and Edward Wray started Betfair back in 2000, and the online betting exchange has grown to be one of the most influential betting sites available. Taking a different approach to the world of online sports betting, Betfair introduced peer to peer betting in a community environment. With prices offering tremendous value against traditional bookmakers, the pioneering exchange has been one of the most important developments in online betting.

Other Bonuses and Promotions 8/10
The promotion section at Betfair is well worth checking out because it is pretty extensive. The betting exchange likes to mix their promotions up well, and there is a good turnaround. You can find Money Back Specials, win bonuses and even prizes to win in competitions across the site. It adds great extra value to the Betfair experience, so they are worth checking out and opting in to.

Sportsbook 9/10
Even though the way that betting works inside the Betfair sportsbook is different to what you will find at traditional bookmakers, it is still as extensive and just as operational. The main difference is that you are presented with options to Back or Lay, but there are fixed odds available as well, so there is something for everything. Navigating around the Betfair sportsbook is easy through the menus and it is quick to get to market options. The depth of bets inside a particular market are heavily varied and because of the peer to peer system, are usually on offer at fantastic value as well. Very good package and importantly, it is very easy to use, even for first timers looking at the exchange, there is nothing overwhelming.

Site Features 9/10
The betting exchange is the big feature really, but the Betfair experience goes even further. You can get free live sports streams as a Betfair customer which is a valuable tool to have on your side, because it merges so very well with their great live in play betting as well. The live in play betting portal offers a wide range of sports to open up new markets for you. There are  brilliant statistics sections and a great interactive forum as well. Pretty feature rich.

Customer Service 10/10
While there are traditional methods of getting answers to problems, like contacting the company through email or telephone, there is also a great FAQ section. You can get access to excellent guide videos so that you can easily learn the system. The nontraditional method is looking at the help provided by other users in the forum as well, which is such a valuable resource.

Payment Options
You can get money into and out of your Betfair account by Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Paypal, Neteller, Moneybookers, Click&Buy, Bank Transfer, Western Union and Cheques. Wherever your money is deposited from, it has to be withdrawn to that same place.

Summary 44/50
Betfair definitely offer up something a little different for everyone and that is where their strengths lie. There is great value to be found with the pioneering backing and laying system on the site and it is worth taking time to learn how you can bet successfully on it. All in all a very strong package which should be in everyone’s online betting repertoire.
