To be fair there aren’t necessarily any bad bookmakers, they all carry out the same basic function. But some are certainly better than others, if you already have an event in mind which you want to bet on, then finding your initial bookmaker should be easy.

Firstly before you open a new account check out what the top bookies are offering as sign up bonus, this is effectively free money for opening your account.

Then go to the three sites that hold the most appealing sign up bonus to you, find the event you want to bet on and compare the odds across all three. Once you’re happy with your choice, complete the simple sign up form and your account will be ready to go in seconds.

The best advice we could give you is to keep comparing the odds across several sites every time you wish to bet, as no bookie is ever best odds for every bet. So the wise thing to do is to set up several accounts, and make the most of their free bet offers.

Payment Options

Another aspect to consider before choosing your online bookmaker, is the ease in which you can deposit and withdraw your money. Most bookies accept major credit and debit cards, but for more security you can also use paypal to deposit and withdraw in minutes. Some also offer payment using mobile phone credit, such as Paddy Power, so make sure your favoured site supports your preferred payment.

Existing Customer Offers

You wouldn’t ordinarily know this until you sign up, but existing customers can enjoy bonuses such as cash back enhanced odds and win bonuses. So to give you an extra insight in to which site you should sign up to, we have compiled a list of the most common bonuses and which sites are renowned for offering these bonuses.
