Betfair Brand and Star Quality

Betfair Sports and the Betfair Exchange, where punters can become the bookies and invite others to lay bets at odds they set, is one of online gambling’s remarkable success stories.

From humble beginnings in the UK they have now become the world’s biggest and arguably best betting exchange and sportsbook. They have huge liquidity across hundreds of betting markets, meaning you can pick out an online bet on pretty much any event in any sport at any given time and someone will be offering you odds.

Betfair was formed in the UK in 2000 by Andrew Black and Edward Wray. By 2006 it was valued at £1.5 billion. In 2010 Betfair floated on the London Stock Exchange. Then in 2016 the company merged with Irish online bookmakers, Paddy Power, to form Paddy Power Betfair in a deal reported to be worth around £7 billion.

As a customer of Betfair you can be sure of a world class gambling experience, with a full site that includes all the betting markets, plus a casino, bingo and poker, as well as a top-notch betting app giving you instant access to the Betfair exchange, sportsbook and all markets.

Betfair is licensed from the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner and the UK Gambling Commission.

    Betfair Sports Betting Markets

    As a top tier world class online bookmaker, Betfair offer an incredible range of sports markets. You can browse the entire seletion across the top of your screen in the full site mode. The most popular sports are displayed by default, but just click on All Sports to get the full list.

    Everything is there from American Football to Darts, Pool, Hockey and Volleyball.

    As you would expect from a company the size of Betfair, a few alternative markets are also offered, including TV Specials like the winner of Love Island, Big Brother, or Sports Personality of the Year. There are also currently bets on when or if Donald Trump will be impeached, and the name of Will and Kate’s third child.

    You will also find by digging into the markets that the range of options is huge as well. So, if football is your choice for example, you are not restricted to just the English leagues, but can choose to bet as far out as Chinese, Icelandic, or even Peruvian football.

    The Betfair in play betting market range is also wide. At time of writing at 3pm on a Wednesday there were no less than 68 live events with options for In Play bets, including Finish Football friendlies!

    There is also a Betfair Live Streaming service, open to all customers, although for horse racing enthusiasts you must first have placed a £2 or more bet on any given race in order to watch live coverage. Other sports, including Football and Cricket, are free for all members to watch.

      Betfair Full Site Usability

      The Betfair full site features the recognisable yellow and black branding that we all associate with this online bookmaker and exchange. Finding your way around is quite simple, though unlike many sportsbooks, Betfair choose to display their markets navigation across the top of the screen on desktop rather than down the side.

      In fact, the left side navigation panel is reserved for Quick Links to the most popular current events and markets.

      This actually makes for a cleaner design and it feels easier to read the center panel with your chosen market.

      Across the very top of the screen you can access all Betfair’s alternative products, including Casino, Bingo, Poker and Exchange.
