If you’re comfortable with the high risk and potential high rewards that a betting exchange offers then Betfair is the first choice for most punters but for those who prefer a more traditional approach to online gaming, the company also operates a very successful and popular sportsbook.
Betfair went online in 2000 and in a relatively short time have grown to become one of the biggest and most respected names in the industry. Their sportsbook is full of offers and great odds so there’s every reason to get involved.

Within 24 hours of your qualifying bet being accepted, you will be offered 3 x £10 free bets.
New customers at the Betfair sportsbook can claim a generous 300% bonus on their first deposit with a maximum free bet on offer of up to £30. When you open a new account, you will be asked to enter the promo code which is ZSK200 and then, after inputting a few basic details you must make a credit using one of the banking options listed below.
With that new account set up you must place a single bet within 30 days at odds of 1.20 or greater and as long as that bet is at a minimum stake of £10, Betfair will place 3 x £10 free bets into your funds within 24 hours.
