As we approach the new season of the English Premier League a lot of us will be placing our bets with our favourite bookmakers – or maybe you just don’t know which one to choose for the new campaign?
We’re going to look at the 3 most popular betting sites in the UK – and why we think you should and shouldn’t use them. In all honesty there isn’t a lot of difference between betting sites these days – the market is so competitive each one will latch onto a new marketing strategy or new feature on their website pretty quickly so it’s hard to distinguish each betting company. Take a look at our reviews of each one and decide for yourself…
William Hill has recently become much more popular in general with football fans and has been one of the most widely respected betting sites for many years. Like most sites you can diversely place your bets on-line at home, from your phone on the go and at any local betting shop (which there are plenty of). William Hill also have live streaming (video and radio) for the events they let you bet on which can be viewed on your laptop or phone. For the UK audience William Hill is definitely a good way to go although if you’re eastern European or fancy betting on events in the Eastern European market then Williams Hill does fail on that – they put little effort into these markets and you won’t find as much to bet on. They are fully licensed and listed on the London Stock Exchange which makes them a pretty reliable place to go… Basically, you won’t get ripped off!
Ladbrokes is also another betting powerhouse with a very ontario sports betting app strong presence in the UK market and very strong brand. Their site layout is very simple as well as their branding. US customers are not permitted to bet by Ladbrokes. Ladbrokes like the other offers mobile, internet, in-house and phone betting again showing the diversity and accessibility of the gambling market. They have over 2,700 betting shops all over Europe which shows you how serious they are as a company – who are also fully licensed. The site is fully secured so you shouldn’t feel worried about inputting your bank details to deposit money – or on your phone either. Ladbrokes are one of the leading UK betting sites and we highly recommend joining them if it’s your first time betting.
Paddy Power is also on the rise in the UK – you can recognise Paddy Power from their green branding which is synonymous with Ireland. They originated within Ireland in 1988 and are quite a recent bookmaker but are proving to be ever reliable and trustworthy in the gambling community. They have a quick turnaround in cashing out and display a large variety of betting markets from sports to music and other novelty betting. Live betting is also enabled along with the technology to bet from phone, tablet, or on your laptop. PaddyPower will only accept Euro and GBP due to their strong presence in the UK and Ireland.
