Each betting review we’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

We picked the above aspects to focus on because active punters ourselves they are the most important things to us.

We 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 Our Opinion?

Good question – why should you trust our bookie reviews?

For starters our team (see about page) have worked and or been involved in the online gambling industry for a number of years in various different roles. Some as professional punters, some as review writers and some even in roles with bookmakers themselves.

From that experience we’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.

W’ve also worked first hand with a number of the top bookmakers on a direct basis, the likes of Bet365, Betfair, Ladbrokes, Coral, William Hill and Ladbrokes, so 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 we’re long term customer at all the bookmakers we’ve reviewed which means we know first hand what the service they are offering is like and how it compares to their competitors.
