AdvantagesNo middleman means better odds. Low risk trading opportunities

DisadvantagesCan take a little while to get your head round the exchange format

"Or so goes the advertising slogan.Betfair is not a bookmaker but an exchange site. It is able to offer significantly better prices than traditional bookies as it is literally made up of Joe Public betting against each other. The other significant difference is that you can actually bet against, as well as for, something happening. It is modelled on the stock exchange and offers much wider options for the bettor. ==‘Gambling’s for fools’.== Old ..." Read review

AdvantagesSet you own odds, more bets available, live betting right up to the last minute

DisadvantagesHigh commission charges, fees for depositing money

BETFAIR bet bet bet!

AdvantagesBeing able to lay aswell as back.

Is BETTING ever FAIR? Review with images



"Betfair was launched in June 2000, and since has become the largest betting exchange on the internet. So what's a betting exchange and how does it differ to your average high street bookmakers? A betting exchange is where you bet against other people rather than directly against the bookmakers. Aside from Normal betting to "Win" what else is different..... - You can bet to "Lay" which means you are betting something to lose. - Betting "In play" ..." Read review
