Review: Matchbook


THOSE looking for an alternative to the exchange behemoth that is Betfair should look no further than Matchbook, a new kid on the block when it comes to Betting Exchanges. The Irish firm look set to shake up the exchange market with their slick-looking site and tiny commission charges – they’re well worth a look.

You’ll find all the major markets you’d expect and we’re pleased to report that their offering on football is pretty strong. Sure it doesn’t appear to have the depth that Befair does but if you play the main markets then you should definitely consider get your bets on here, especially as the 1% starting commission outstrips Betfair‘s meaning there’s more margin for yourself when you win.

It’s been reported that Matchbook are particularly strong in US Sports, often matching or bettering Betfair‘s liquidity so if you’re a fan of star-spangled sports then you might find it a better place to trade.

As well as the betting opportunities available at Matchbook, it’s a really simple site to use and navigate. If you’ve never tried betting exchanges before but are curious who they work, Matchbook is a great place to start.
