Coral Sports Betting Review

Coral Sports are one of the biggest names in the betting industry, one of the most recognisable companies on the high street. This is partly due to their long history, well branded logo and quirky television adverts. At Place a Bet Online we think they stand out from the crowd, but why?

With the aid of an easy to navigate website and regular enhanced specials, Coral has quickly become one of the market leaders.  There are few places you can go and not see a Coral shop, with the acquisition of Ladbrokes their future looks secure.  Sponsoring many big events ensures that their name is recognisable, to even the smallest of punters.

Their website is excellent, even if it can frustrate slightly on some platforms. But one area where it does appeal more than competitors, is their horse racing market. Their use of colour make it easy for players to understand if a selection is being backed in or drifting out.

Coral Welcome Bonuses

Coral are excellent with their up to date Welcome Bonuses.  Every week they offer a new customer offer relating to an event during that week, usually a football match.  Some of them have been as silly as “Get 8/1 for a corner in a football match”.  The maximum bet is often £5, however this still returns more than their usual non-event related welcome offer.

Coral Betting App

In 2014 Coral took a brave step in product development, asking their customers to beta test their mobile app. It turns out this was a pretty good idea, as they now have one of the best mobile betting apps on the market.
