Bookmakers

Post by Scherzzo » Tue Jan 05, 2016 2:53 pm

Hi everyone,

Can anyone recommend other bookmakers other than pinnacle? I'm happy with pinnacle but their bet options are limited. What are your experiences with other bookmakers??

Hi,

It is very difficult to say. It depends on to what events / leagues / sports you want to bet on, in which country do you bet (because of restrictions) etc.

If you want to bet on different events eg. number of corners, cards, or who will score the first goal etc., so it is perfect Bet365. Unfortunately the more unusual bets / leagues the lower limit.
Have you tried some web sites with comparisation of books by ratings, access to professional gamblers?

Regarding Betfair, if you are not thinking about trading, in my opinion don´t use it, most of the odds are after the deduction of commission the same. And the "forest" leagues and other types of bets there are very low liquidity.

Best regards

Thanks for the replies guys. I'm from Ireland so I don't think there are any restrictions on where I bet. I bet on any games where the odds catch my eye :) . I have found a few reviews. I hear SBObet is good.

If you're a winning punter, you can get your bets on with exchanges, I use Betfair but prefer Smartkets where commission is only 2%.
Traditional bookmaker won't let you get very far if you win money from them, see ...

SBObet is good, they have professional customer service, quick withdrawal and high odds and limit as Pinnacle.

B365 have competitive odds but like all of them, they'll close your accounts quite quickly if they think you know what you're doing.

Betfair obviously offer the best odds mostly and you can Lay unlike most other bookmakers but you obviously have to pay commission which can eat into your profit, particularly once you start paying their PC (Premium Charge).

If you're an Advantage Player, spread your bets around amongst many bookies.

Any list should include:

Pinnacle
Marathonbet
SBObet
B365
Ladbrokes
William Hill
All the exchanges

Hi,
never use russian bookies (Marathonbet, 1xbet, etc.) if you want get back your money and winnings. All russian bookies are thieves and they will stole all your money if you are successful player. Trust me I am very experienced player about it.
