It's very easy to sign up at Betfair, but I was later requested additional security details like copy of passport and utility bill.
There are a great range of markets from sports, politics and other random stuff. Betfair nearly always offers the best odds which is the main reason I use the site. It's a peer to peer betting site and I love it because you can lay bets (ie. be the bookmaker) as well as place bets. You can also see the liquidity in the market for the current prices and nearby prices, and how many bets have been placed overall. There are even developer apps that can be used to link into Betfair to determine market trends etc.
Deposits and withdrawals are very straight forward and link to your chosen debit card. Live chat / customer services are helpful - I've had to use them a couple of times to get the bonus from an offer, and the problem was sorted quickly on live chat.
The in play betting has a cash out function, including on the Betfair app, which is very handy when watching live sports. The close out odds are undoubtedly better than those of traditional bookmakers offering the same function. In summary there is nothing else out there that compares to Betfair.
When I first joined Paddy Power it only took about 4 - 5 minutes to complete the very straightforward but comprehensive registration procedure to show I was a genuine punter and prove I was at least 18 years of age.
I was really surprised and pleased to see the wide and competitive nature of the betting markets on offer which definitely has very good odds on offer to suit every betting enthusiast.
I particularly wanted to deposit using Paypal and it was a simple transaction to achieve this but I could have chosen a wide number of other methods had I found them more convenient.
I chatted briefly with an agent regarding the application of bonuses or fee bets on my account and it was a thoroughly pleasant exchange and one I would look forward to in the near future.
In play betting is very well managed and I can change my mind about bets placed at virtually any time during the course of the event. I have downloaded the app and look forward to using it the next time I intend to access the Paddy Power website.
There is not one bad thing I can say about Ladbrokes they are such a wonderful betting company I've had the best experience I could have possibly had from start to end everything went smoothly.
The sign up process was very easy and quick to set up my account.
One of the best things about betting with this company was the in play betting. I had a few bets of the LA Lakers and after I had made a bet I was able to watch the game of basketball so I could see how my bet was progressing and the best part it was free to watch with a bet of £1 such a great deal.
The cash out experience was very easy, all I had to was verify my age with a bank card and the money was in my account within 24 hours.
I had to speak to the customer support live chat people once when I had a problem with a free bet I had won but they easily resolved this for me so all in all I couldn't fault this company. I am one extremely happy customer and would recommend these to any one looking for a new betting app
