Betfair is the World's biggest betting exchange. Earning quite a lot of money on this business they've recently decided to enter the traditional sports betting market too. They already had a really good betting platform and experienced team of professionals and you can see this straight away from their sportsbook.

Betfair is a UK based company and holds a UK Gambling Commission licence so there's no legal risk in playing on their site from the UK. The recent headlines were mainly focused on Betfair going into a merger with another betting giant named PaddyPower. This is not a true powerhouse so we can be sure to have a 100% reliable bookmaker. The big focus for Betfair is mobile betting and their product really lives up to it.


Betfair is now giving away £30 in free bets. All you need to do to claim the offer is open a new account and place your first bet with odds of at least 1/2. Once you have done that Betfair will add 3 free bets of £10 each and that not depending if your qualifying bet will be a winning or losing one.

That's probably the best offer of this type on the market at the moment. If you are into free bets definitely something you should try out.

Betfair Bonus Code

If you want to use the £30 free bet promo make sure you use promo code ZSK200. It's important to add the code in order to get this particular bonus. From time to time Betfair offers smaller occasional bonuses with different codes. We always place the highest possible bonus information in our review.

New Customer offer. Place 5 x €10 or more bets to receive €20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. T&Cs apply

Other Promotions

As a sportsbook Betfair is doing really a lot of promotions. Basically every day you can get some enhanced odds offers from them and from time to time you can also be surprised by other interesting promotions.

Betfair is also quite good when it comes to some special betting markets.

Horse Racing Offers

Betfair's exchange is very strong when it comes to horse racing. Mainly thanks to information the company is getting from their exchange punters they are also able to prepare a decent horse racing product on their sportsbook.

Betfair quite often offers best prices on horse racing and money back offers are also not hard to find on their website.

Football Offers

Betfair Sportsbook is one of the leading bookmakers when it comes to football offers. For example just on the day of writing they offered 6/1 enhanced odds on Arsenal to beat Chelsea in the London derby.

They offer similar promotions nearly every day and definitely always when a bigger game is on the fixture list. Something that is worth keeping an eye on.

Other betting markets

The exchange might not have all the markets you can imagine but Betfair did the right thing when switching on their sportsbook. They haven't limited their product to what they had on the exchange and decided to offer number of additional betting markets. Thanks to this their offer is now very competitive.

Betfair's website is really good quality. It's easy to navigate and find the betting markets you're interested in. Unfortunately the fact they have both sportsbook and exchange now might be a bit confusing at times. When you navigate between the markets and you get one that Betfair doesn't has on the exchange you're automatically switched to sportsbook. If you don't know the difference between sportsbook and exchange you might even end up placing bet on one instead of the other.

Mobile & App

Betfair mobile app is really good one. Below you have a few features it supports.

  • Place back and lay bets
  • Bet In-Play
  • Update and cancel bets
  • Live Scores
  • Bookmarks
  • Australian Wallet support
  • Cash Out
  • Football Multiples



Betfair Sportsbook is definitely one of the best options when it comes to online betting. The company has already created the biggest betting exchange in the World and is now working really hard on becoming the first choice place also for traditional sportsbook fans.

Betfair offers quite high odds, a lot of enhanced odds and money back promotions. Their cash out feature is probably the best working one on the market. Do you need more to give it a try? Well they do give more which is £30 in free bets.
