Coral originally began operations in 1926 and after merging with Eurobet and being acquired by Gala it has become one of the top bookmakers in Europe. With such a long, rich history it’s no surprise that Coral is so highly regarded by bookmakers and high street betters alike. Like some of the other major bookmakers with a retail presence Coral is licenced and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. As a result, users can rest assured that they will not be unfairly exploited and that should a gambling addiction develop, Coral will be there to provide assistance for them.
All the major markets one would expect are here, as well as a wide variety of more obscure markets that likely only appeal to a tiny fraction of their audience. Football, basketball, boxing, hockey, golf, rugby, tennis, horseracing and many more are all available here. Within each of these sports even the lesser-known leagues are available. Additionally, politics and reality TV can be wagered on although how these odds are determined is a bit of a mystery. Generally many of the major industry players with both online and retail presence don’t necessarily offer the best odds. In this case, we were pleased to find that the odds were actually quite competitive given their size.
The overall layout is not exactly cutting-edge but it is simple, easy to navigate and runs well on most computers and browsers. The interface also translates well to smartphones and tablets usage as most features available on the desktop version can also be accessed through the app. Coral also launched a new version of their In-Play live wagering which is a welcome replacement to the lackluster previous iteration. All of the major markets and events are available under this new feature and odds are updated in real-time without any page refresh required by the user. There is also live streaming available for many events both on both the mobile and desktop versions which can be accessed by all users provided they have an account balance greater than zero. While a large variety of events are available it is not nearly as impressive as the Bet365 offering.
Coral features just about everything you would expect from a company with such a large industry presence. Although not state of the art in its design, promotions or live streaming features, it is still one of the best sites out there for users looking for a safe, reliable, secure platform that covers all major markets.Click Here To Claim Your Free Bet
