Bluesq.com is just one of a host of betting sites on the internet, and one I had neglected until recently. They used to offer the tranditional incentive, the carrot that has been dangled to potential punters since phone betting first came in, namely a free bet, although there is currently no promotion for this, although in the past there was a free ten pound bet when you joined.
As with all betting sites, there is more to just betting on the horses these days, with betting possible on a wide range of sport, and with mybluesq.com you can choose what you want to appear on your front page, if they are certain sports that interest you more than others to bet on, and the set up is very easy. The sign-up process is very easy, with the mandatory contact details, login name and password as well as card details so that you can put money into your “account”.
One of the advantages of online betting, and one that is the case with bluesq.com is the fact that as well as betting from the comfort of wherever your computer may be, you can also enjoy tax free betting, i.e. you are not liable to pay the 9% betting tax (well it was 9% when I was last in Britain!) that you would have to if you went to your local “turf accountant”.
The range of sports is comparable to that of its competitors and in the ever diversifying world of betting you can bet on increasing numbers of things, and to give an example of the current Ashes cricket series, you can bet on series scores, game results, team totals, matchwinners, innings totals, next man out. The odds are constantly changing with odds e.g. England to win the match having drifted from 25-1 to 33-1 in the last 15 minutes as I type.
Another choice of bets other than for sports and events (e.g. Big Brother, Tory Leadership etc.) is for the financial markets with a wide range of different bets on the various markets (American, London, Fast East and European) with currencies, commodities and stocks all represented.
The site is well laid out, and your account page is very simple to understand, telling you how much you have laid as a stake, whether to win, or each way, and the odds at which you placed the bet, the stake value, and also the money returned/refunded (i.e. won or refunded in the event of a bet being void – e.g. a horse not running, someone not competing.) An example of the latter was me placing an each-way bet on Heinz Harald Frentzen to win a Grand Prix, when of course he promptly got sacked two days later. My stake was refunded in full, without any problems.
The site is simple to understand and a lot less cluttered than many betting sites. You can search your transactions between certain dates of for a certain historical period, and withdrawing money from your account (i.e. putting it back into your bank account) or depositing (i.e. debiting your bank account) are simple procedures, which require your password for security purposes.
A comprehensive help section offers you all the guidance you need and explains how to place bets, talks about the site security/integrity for those who are new to it, and general frequently asked questions. All in all bluesq.com is an easy to use site, which is reliable and certainly is one to recommend, although you may find introductory offers elsewhere (incentive bets e.g. free £10 for registering). Of course as with all betting sites, your self control is essential, as otherwise you can lose a lot of money that you may not have to lose. Use with caution!

Excellent op, wouldn't have minded a flutter on the England game. Underage though! Lol. Thanks for your comment on the chiltern railway op. Yeah I'm sure the trains are a lot better in Austria than here! Though for a british railway CR are quite good. Cheers, James.
