Betting Sites

If you're looking to place a few bets online, then you're going to need an online betting site. In the old days, to put a bet on the football you had to traipse down to the local bookies (usually in the rain) and accept whatever odds they were offering.

The online bookmakers changed this - and you can now not only bet from the comfort of your own home (or from the pub), but you have a healthy number of options to choose from. This availability and accessibility of the online betting sites created a new level of competition between the bookies - the end result being better odds, more promotions and lots of lovely free bets.

The table below lists recommended betting sites that are aimed at the UK market - meaning they accept UK customers, offer promotions to UK punters, wager in GBP and most importantly, have markets in British sports. Some names you will probably recognise from the high street or from sports sponsorship deals, whilst others may be completely new to you. Included in the mix are the traditional bookmakers, the new breed of online-only betting sites as well as the occasional betting exchange.
