Extra Features

As you would expect from such a huge name like Betfair, plenty of extra features and extra promos are on offer.

I’ll start with the promos first, Betfair offer you up to a £25 free bet with every winner of 3/1 or more on live ITV horse races, you can win up to 50% more on your first acca of the week, plus they have the best odds guaranteed on Champions League, Premier League, NBA, ATP Tennis, rugby, UK & Irish horse races, and cricket.

With regards to features, there’s a lot that’s different and also unique about Betfair. We’ll start with the Exchange, because that’s what they became renowned for in the early days, and even now they still boast the largest betting exchange in the world with over 1 million active users. The Betfair Exchange allows you to become the bookie, giving you all the power, and it’s a great place to make some serious money.

Then on top of that we have live streaming on a whole host of sports, we’ve got oddsboosts and accaboosts all over the place, cash out, and a new feature called Same Game Multi where you can build an acca all within the same match.


What a sportsbook. To put it simply, Betfair offer everything you’ll ever want and more with a host of added features, a ton of continuous promotional offers, and the biggest betting exchange in the world.

Then there’s live streaming, the brand-new Same Game Multi, a straightforward banking system with all the main payment methods, and 17-hour customer support.

To be honest, Betfair is probably the best sportsbook on the internet today. Quite literally no one offers what they do. It really is a magnificent creation.
