Betfair is important it is for UK horse racing. Seems that everyone uses them as there are no real viable alternatives in the market.

Hello all, my experiences with betfair isn't very good. About few year ago I set limits on the amount I could lose on betfair casino, arcade and bingo. I set limits of £25 a week losses(or so I thought), on each of the casino bingo and arcade. When I log in I am able to view these loss limits. However I was able to spend much more than this on the arcade.

A lot has improved BUT they still need to improve their app - especially the "cash out' option. The amount of times a bet has been suspended for no reason, this mean the customer is unable to cash out - just not good enough. Despite the frustration (at times), in my opinion, betfair do have one of the best apps out there at the moment. Improve on the app and you become a serious contender for the best gambling app. I think they could be better.

Hi all, I use Betfair every day of the year but have yet to see any sign of a sportsbook (as opposed to exchange markets). This isn't the first time I've heard about it but never thought to ask before. How can I have missed it? Where can I find it? Very confused!

When you win a Lay bet on Betfair, do you win the stake and the liability or just the stake?

When laying a bet you are in effect offering a price on the event just like a bookmaker does and you are looking for someone or several people to take the bet you are offering.If 1000 people offered a lay bet on a team and there were only 200 takers then only the 200 layers who offered the best prices would be matched and the other 800 would do no business.That is why you have to vary your odds,the aim is to get your offering matched at the lowest possible price and it is VERY difficult to do even if you are conversant with odds and percentages.you may well be better off (in a football match)backing team A and the draw with the bookmakers rather than laying team B on an exchange especially when the commision rate is taken into account.I dabbled a few years back but found i was making far more for the operators (the commision) than for myself. do not be lured by "free offers" they are rarely as good as they seem so check all the terms and conditions.

I am 19 and about to sign up for betfair (betting app) and I have been told that even when you put your age as 19, the bookmakers will still do age checks and if they can't verify them, your account is suspended.

It's normal thing. Every bookmaker have security and you just need to provide that you are really 19 year old

Wetherby provides a Betfair first

There was a racing first at Wetherby this week, as for the first time ever three horses were beaten on Betfair’s exchange at odds of 1.01, while the surprise winner Pookie Pekan was an in running 1,000-1 shot.

The event became possible when Northern Girl, who was at the time leading the race fell and inadvertently obstructed Dulce Panem, subsequently the path was cleared for a surprise winner in the race.

Betfair’s Barry Orr said: “This is a first in our 18-year history. We’ve had plenty of races where two horses have traded at the basement price of 1.01 and got beaten but never three in one race. And then to see a 1,000 [999-1] winner is nothing short of amazing.

“There was plenty traded at 1.01 and a tenner at 1,000 on the winner. It’s the glorious uncertainty of racing taken to an extreme on what we thought was a quiet Tuesday.”

Recalling previous winners that had traded at 1,000, Orr added: “Who can forget AP McCoy remounting Family Business back in 2002 to win having traded at 1,000 or Western Warhorse in the 2014 Arkle, matched at the same price?”

Winning trainer and owner Stuart Coltherd also commented: “We were lucky, but we deserved a bit of luck as it has been that sort of season for us. I’ve always liked this horse but I’ve been waiting for better ground for him.”

Detailing the launch of Auto Cash Out, Betfair development teams stated that they wanted to bring flexibility for its Exchange customers, combined with a new engaging dynamic in industry cash out functionalities.

Betfair consistently strives to bring products to our customers that improve their experience and give them as much control as possible over their bets.” Betfair detailed to SBC

“Auto Cash Out allows customers to choose the profit they’d like to make ahead of the event and we ensure their bet is ‘Cashed Out’ when their selection hits a price that locks in their chosen profit. It’s perfect if a customer thinks their horse will have a fast start but won’t last the distance, or their team has a tendency to throw away a lead.”

Auto Cash Out has been released following a successful trial with select UK and Ireland players.

Betfair launches Man of the Match market from WhoScored.com

Leading football statistics website WhoScored.com has reinforced the “quality and credibility” of its data-based Man of the Match market by partnering with Betfair.

Betfair has become the second bookmaker after BetVictor to utilise the ever-popular market, which has caused a surge in betting activity and proved a real hit with fans for its objectivity.

The market, which will cover the remainder of the Premier League season and offers supporters the chance to make money on the highest rated player in different matches, is based on statistical data rather than subjective pundit opinion.

Cristiano Acconci, WhoScored.com’s Co-Founder and CEO, said: “Having our Man of the Match market on two bookmakers really shows the quality and credibility of our ratings system.

“This market also allows all football fans to join without being betting experts, it’s a fun market to bet on with very favourably odd margins.”

WhoScored.com’s Man of the Match market is based on a ratings system designed to analyse over 200 raw statistics collected by Opta, part of the Perform Group, with updates made live.

WhoScored.com is one of more than 50 major affiliates attending this week’s Betting on Football conference, held at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea FC, from 20-23 March.

Betfair appoints Leo Burnett London as new creative lead

UK marketing news source The Drum has reported that FTSE100 betting group Paddy Power Betfair (PPB ) has appointed Leo Burnett London as new creative lead for its Betfair brand.

This February, Betfair marketing called for a creative review as PPB’s new leadership team moved to restructure the group’s marketing agency set-up, preferring for its lead brands to be serviced by separate creative agencies.

Leo Burnett is reported to have won the multi-million £ Betfair account following a competitive pitch process featuring five agencies.

The London agency takes over the betting account from former incumbent Lucky Generals, who no longer maintain a relationship with PPB marketing.

As new creative lead, Leo Burnett will be tasked with delivering Betfair’s multi-million World Cup 2018 marketing campaign, working alongside MediaCom, Betfair’s lead media planning and buying agency.

Leo Burnett London will report to Stephen Mault, Betfair Brand Director for the UK & Ireland, who commented on the appointment;

“We went to pitch with a customer-led brief and were really excited by the work Leo Burnett presented. We look forward to launching a new Betfair brand proposition in 2018 and bringing it to life across all our key territories.”
