Betfair

Betting. As it should be

  • Pros
    Buy OR sell odds!

    Some bets only available as singles
  • Bonus

Betfair is the world’s leading betting exchange. With Betfair you either place normal bets (back) or offer odds for other people to bet on (lay). It’s a brilliant concept to bet against eachother, but it has it’s disadvantages since you’ll find less odds markets and only some bets available for multiples, and multiples are always with reduced odds.

On the positive side, you can almost bet any amount you want and will find plenty of games to bet on. Last but not least, you are always offered very competitive odds regardless on your selection.

Betfair

Selection

As the world’s leading betting exchange, you will find odds on most sports events across the globe. Even odds on stuff like politics and entertainment. If there’s a public demand for the odds, you’ll find it at Betfair! As the odds are created by people like yourself, Betfair can focus on keeping the relevant markets open and updated constantly. Unfortunately you don’t see as many markets as the big bookmakers offer.

Odds

With a betting exchange you can not only buy odds like normal (back) but also offer them to other people (lay)! Only when someone “buys” your stake at the odds of your choice, will the bet be valid. The constant competition creates some of the best odds available online, with close to 100% payout on many events! Betfair naturally charges a commission for each winning bet – usually 5%, depending on your winnings, betting frequency etc.

In-play

Live betting is available for all the popular tournaments, often with free live streaming for racing in particular, but also the Spanish La Liga and much more. Most importantly the odds are always competitive with high betting limits and again: the option of both selling and buying odds.

Transactions

Transactions are swift and reliable, with numerous payment options to choose from when funding your account or requesting a payout. When depositing with NETeller or credit card, a 1,5% fee applies. All withdrawals are free except for bank transfers which cost £10.

Website

Betfair.com has a very sharp and modern look, with professional graphics and interesting features. Being a betting exchange there are certain aspects which you will have to get used to, but once you’ve learned the basics, it’s actually a very simple site to use with logic navigation.

Support

Betfair supports their customers through email or over the phone if you prefer personal assistance for more complicated matters. The support comes in many different languages. Not the fastest support in the business, but you are dealing with a professional company that wants to help.

i bet majorly on cricket and betfair is one of the best places to go as it offers you a variety of markets both in-play and pre match. The high commission rate is the only negative aspect,but the fact that you are likely to get the best odds on the market more than makes up for it.

Betfair has a lot of markets. I have never placed a bet on any other bookmaker than this one. I think it has the best odds than many other. The only bad thing about this bookmaker is that they take a lot of commission. But other than that, i think this is a great bookmaker for the beginners who dont understand much. Betfair is quite easy to Understand..

Betfair is the best place for betting live as you can make profit easier than normal bookmakers , especially best on tennis where coeficients change really fast and you can make profit for minutes. Also is best for hedging your bets and play for goals on football after 89 th minute when bookmakers stop markets on most matches for betting. Also very nice offers for betting every month.
