Betfair is one of the fastest growing bookmakers in the country and for two very good reasons. Firstly they are offering all new customers a free bet worth £20, just open an account, deposit £20, place your bet and if you lose they’ll refund you £20 quid.
Secondly the odds are often much much better as this is not a traditional bookmakers. You do not bet against a bookie like you normally would, instead YOU can become the bookie, backing and laying odds with other punters, essentially cutting out the middle man which gives you on average 20% better odds than high street bookmakers offer.
It may seem a strange concept to wrap your head around but it’s actually very easy. Common sense tells you that in a horse race with six horses only one can actually win so five have to lose. With Betfair you can ‘Lay’ a horse which essentially means backing it to LOSE the race. With five horses who have to lose your odds of winning are much higher i.e. five out of six as opposed to one of six to pick the winner!
Betfair is a brilliant site and if you give it a chance and take some time to go through your options then you’ll never look back. There are plenty of tutorials on the site to help you navigate around and the site itself is very clear and easy to use. And if you thought Betfair only catered for the horses then you’d be wrong. There is a whole host of games that can have a bet on including Cricket, Rugby, Baseball and Greyhound racing to name but a few.BET NOW ~ BETFAIR
