Bookmaker Reviews

Sick and tired of reading the same old bookmaker reviews? You know the ones which just big up every betting site out there?

Well I can help… In this section of the site I’ve reviewed a range of different popular UK online bookmakers and given my honest opinion on their service and reputation:

How Are The Reviews Scored?

Each betting review I’ve conducted comprises of five main categories and from those categories and overall star rating, out of five, have been assigned. The categories are as follows:

  • Betting Markets & Promotions
  • Live Streaming
  • Mobile App
  • Customer Support
  • Welcome Bonus

I picked the above aspects to focus on because as an active punter they are the most important things to me.

I have also taken the different bookies reputations into account when assigning their overall ratings.

Note: all reviews also have a list of restricted countries and territories from which you can’t open an account and use the service.

Why Should You Trust My Opinion?

Good question – why should you trust my bookie reviews?

For started I have worked and or been involved in the online gambling industry since the age of 18 (11 years ago now) so I’ve got a solid grasp on the long term reputation of different bookmakers as well as a good historical knowledge of any industry scandal or issues which may have taken place.

I’ve also worked first hand with a number of the bigger bookmakers on a direct basis, the likes of Bet365, Betfair, Ladbrokes, Coral, William Hill and Ladbrokes, so I have a good feel for what each brand is trying to achieve and how they feel about and respect their customers.

Probably more important than all the above though is the fact that I’m a long term customer at all the bookmakers I’ve reviewed which means I know first hand what the service they are offering is like and how it compares to their competitors.

Video Bookmaker Reviews

Note: some of the promotional information discussed in the video reviews below is outdated. However the correct promo info is available in the bullet points which accompany the video.

99.9% of betting site reviews are long winded, promotional and total freaking boring. I’m breaking the mold and am vowing to do all my bookmaker reviews in under 4 minutes or less.

Bet365 Review

  • I use daily.
  • 100% deposit bonus up to £200.
  • Great markets for all sports.
  • Odds comparable to industry leaders.
  • Founded in 2000, safe & reliable.


BetVictor Review

  • I use daily.
  • £25 free bet for new customers.
  • Fantastic odds (proven to have best football odds), expect industry leading prices.
  • In my opinion the BEST promotions of any bookmaker.
  • Founded in 1946, formerly Victor Chandler.


Paddy Power Review

  • I use weekly.
  • £20 free bet triggered by £10 bet.
  • Decent odds but don’t expect too many top industry prices.
  • Most frequent money back specials of any bookmaker.
  • Founded in 1988, known for limiting winning punters.


Coral Bookmakers Review

  • I rarely, if ever, use.
  • £50 free bet for new punters.
  • Can’t compete with industry leaders in terms of odds.
  • Lack of money back specials, some enhanced odds available.
  • Founded in 1926, good name on the high-street.
