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...

Betfair.com is a player-to-player betting site where instead of pitting your wits against a bookmaker, you take on another punter. Betfair's role in the setup is to create a forum for these bets and their commision is about 5% of the winner's profits, but this can change to 3% dependant on how...

ContraHigh commission charges, fees for depositing money

This is my favourite website and also the one I use most often - almost everyday in fact. Betfair, as its name suggests, is a place where you can bet on various events but they are NOT a bookmaker. The concept of Betfair is quite unusual in that you bet against other punters rather than against...

ProTrading, Being the bookmaker

ContraNone

So what is Betfair?? ------------------------------ Betfair is what is referred to as a peer-to-peer gaming exchange, which, in everyday speak means people can bet against each other, rather than against a specific bookmaker. Why would people want to bet against each other...

“Is BETTING ever FAIR?”

ProWinning

ContraLosing

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...

It is only in recent years that I started to gamble, and that is down to the internet. It all started when In joint a 'rewards' site, www.greasypalm.co.uk', on which there were various online bookmakes such as Coral, Bet Fair, all of which were offering free bets (plus the greasy palm reward)...

I have started to use Betfair after the merger of Flutter.com with Betfair.com. Like Flutter it is another website where you bet against each other with no bookie, this means the odd's are far better. If you had a Flutter.com account they transfered you details and balance over to Betfair very...

If anyone bets online I am sure that you have heard of betfair and that flutter.com has recently merged with them. I have a flutter account which I have had to transfer to betfair account as I have some bets outstanding in flutter at the moment, but wish I didn't. The reasons are as follows:...

This review does not cover every minute detail of Betfair, just the essentials followed by a guide on what I do on Betfair every day. Now the majority of people in this country enjoy a flutter and I was no exception, that was until Betfair put me off gambling for life. No I place thousands of...

“Back or lay”

ProBe the bookie

ContraYou can lose

With the advent of betting exchanges such as betfair, you can now back or lay a selection (what is laying ) Laying a selection is just that laying a selection to lose a certain event,instead of backing it to win. EXAMPLE OF THIS IS:::::If you think that liverpool will NOT beat man utd at odds of...

Betfair.com is a player-to-player (p2p) betting site where instead of pitting your wits against a bookmaker, you take on another punter. Betfair's role in the setup is to create a forum for these bets and their "cut" is 5% of the winner's profits. The first thing you'll notice when logging on to...

Betfair is one of the new person to person betting sites that cut out the middle man (the bookmaker) and match up punters who want to back a horse/player with those who want to lay a horse/player. It has three main advantages over betting with a bookmaker. Firstly, you get better prices - a...

ContraBeware the sharks!

BASIC OPERATION If you fancy something a bit different to what the traditional bookmakers are offering, I’d recommend you take a look at Betfair. When you subscribe, you place bets against other punters rather than against a bookie. The traditional arrangement is for a bookmaker to draw up a list...
