Betdaq tried to become the new Betfair but they didn't. They don't offer that high posts in their trading business. Although they are a reliable bookmaker with normal service, it is not the bookmaker where I would to try to win big money. At popular European matches there is something to win, but the lower leagues, you can't even place your bet at all times.

Excellent presentation , easy bet placement. Easy deposits and withdrawals, good variety of events. For me one of the two best betting exchanges (the other is betfair). While it is not a home for beginners, it offers the possibility of placing bets in a traditional way.

High fees and commissions, it is much worse than betfair. I don't think they are able to compare with that leading company. They offer some promotions rarely so you can't expect any surprises.

Shocking! Nearly impossible to place a bet, took over a week to process my ID as they for some reason lock your account AFTER you make a deposit. Customer services are useless and most of the website does not work. Sort it out, Jeez!

When compared to Betfair, Betdaq is small but their offer for discount on commissions attracted me. Despite having low liquidity in their markets, I joined them. The only benefit of using Betdaq over Betfair is that you will have to pay less commission and if you see this on a big scale then, you can save 100s dollars in commissions. The only problem is liquidity otherwise it's freaking awesome. My rating will be 4/5 stars for them.

The BETDAQ publicity MANIFESTO promised Maximum 3% commission, yet they have upped mine to 3. 8%. Organisations that hold our money must be totally trustworthy and when they are not true to their word, alarm bells start to ring.

This is a betting exchange, not a bookie, they simply bring backers and layers alike and you can trade bets like a day trader but with lot less capital. Backers often offer truly excellent odds, no bookie would ever offer.

This is an Irish version of Betfair basically. It does exactly the same thing, you can back to win or act as a bookie, laying to lose. I've found you are far better off in terms of level stake betting, just simply back to win and over a season you should on average come out about 20% ahead, of course only take odds that are significantly better than the bookies are offering, avoid odds on shots, in fact you're better off laying them, as long as you are very close to bookie's prices.

Absolutely fantastic place to do all your internet betting! You've probably been told that betting is a mugs game and the bookie always wins, not so here. If you look closely at the odds and do your sums, it will actually become apparent that the backer always wins here, the odds are distinctly in the backer's favour and you certainly won't catch the bookies laying here because the odds are NOT in their favour. You can also lay like a bookie, but I recommend backing for overall advantage, only lay if you're feeling charitable!

The company is a betting exchange. I consider it better than other bookies, because it has a smaller percentage commission and does not exhibit any problems when withdrawing. Perhaps the only disadvantage is that there is not enough money played in it to approach the big players. I recommend it to you without reservation.

As a backer this is your best bet by far. You will get the sort of odds a traditional bookie would refuse to lay at because it would be unprofitable for them on average over time. Indeed the bookies would consider that their layers are getting an unfair deal in favour of the backer. Instead of getting a price designed by the bookie to work out in their favour, it's more a situation of the layer being another punter just simply betting against an outcome like a bookie, except they are laying at odds that are just too high and too favourable to the punter, but being a punter who likes to back, it's brilliant. Hence the high rating. If you want to try your luck at being a bookie though by laying on betfair, trust me mate, give it a miss, the punter will come out ahead of you.

This is one of the sites I now use regularly for placing bets with. Why, because of the trading opportunities it offers, when the back market is at a high, you can take the price, then lay it off when as it happens most of the time, the market lowers and you can lock in a profit, guaranteed whatever the outcome. For straight punters it offers far better value than a traditional bookie, so that's another ting I like. My only dislike, sometimes a trade can go against you, if this happens to you, just bail out and cut the loss and you make a profit all in all.

I like this site, because their staff aren't too bureaucratic and uncooperative, they ask for your id, but you just send it and in 20 minutes job done when you first open an account. Friendly and helpful as well. Good odds that enable you to bet profitably. Be careful about the value you're getting though, as that's the key to good punting, most of the time your are, but always double check, against what other bookies are offering, if the deal is unfavourable that way, you can make a profit, very often by arbing it, ie taking a bookies bet at a higher price than it can be laid off at the exchange.

The worst bookie I've ever dealt with. They're small league, they think they're big time. Nearly every bet I placed had issues. The site is very slow, it crashes. Poor value. I don't want to sort out their problems, they offer you a free bet and hope you keep quiet. Lasted 3 weeks only because they had golf bets in masters.

Like in all the business, the small fish are eaten by the big sharks. The same thing will soon happen with Betdaq, because Ladbrokes has agreed to acquire Betdaq at the beginning of this year. The transaction should be done until the late February. Don't know what to really say about this. Ladbrokes is a good name in the online betting industry - it has a major impact among the UK bettors especially, but overall these isn't amazing news. Do you hear somebody saying "omg, ladbrokes is amazing, it has the best odds, fantastic betting offer, extraordinary features"? No, I don't think so. They still have lots of work with their own website, so I don't think that Betdaq will have major upgrades in the following months/years. I've used Betdaq for a while, it was really great, a good betting exchange website (the only one able to compete with betfair). The odds were good, the payments were processed fast, the support was really friendly via email. If they continue offering the same type of services, then surely they'll survive and acquire more and more customers. I hope they'll keep the same platform and website design because it really looks well and it's easy to use. At this moment there aren't more things to say about Betdaq because we don't know exactly what changes will happen.

BetDaq - a reliable exchange where it is possible to stake on sports. Here players compete with each other, instead of with the bookmaker. The profit of the exchange is formed at the expense of commission collecting from winnings. It is possible to place a bet on this or that outcome on own odds which has to be within a certain limit. But the bet will play only if someone accepts it, therefore there are difficulties with purchasing and selling bets. After registering it is necessary to pass ID check by providing the passport copy. The commission of the exchange makes 5% from a winning, but can be lowered to 2% depending on your turnover at the exchange.

An irish betting exchange and a grand company to deal with. Best odds you'll ever get as you're just betting against other site users instead of a bookie, so if you win big time, they don't give a damn and still value your trade. I'm not just biased being a paddy myself, you really do get the best odds going, deposit bonus not really worth bothering with as it's just a points system for long term use, but other than that they're grand. Watch out laying though, make sure you only lay a bookie prices or sod it, the asking prices are often excessive in relation to the likelihood of the win and the backer will profit from you in the overall and longer term. Grand for backers but make sure you're asking for a good deal and don't lower yourself into accepting bookies prices. There you go I'm speaking neutrally advising both parties, good luck folks and may the best man win (or lose and still make a profit laying) as the case may be.

Betdaq is the younger brother of betfair, and that is due to a lack of liquidity. Betdaq could become a good competitor for Betfair because the difference between commissions. I use Betdaq just because sometimes I can find some markets there, not covered by Betfair. If you are a trader you must chose Betfair, but if you want to steal some bonus, Betdaq offers nice freeplay. No problems with withdrawing or bonus.

You can be the bookie or the punter here, ie you can back results or lay them to lose, be careful of your liability as they risk may be too great and too much in the punter's favour, if you're a punter and can get a layer to pay you odds in your favour (which isn't difficult) and staking plan and you should come out in profit. I give it a 5 stars as for its unique thing of letting you be bookie or punter. My only question, where the heck's the search box???

Not quite as good as betfair but offering a nice sign up bonus at the moment, but if betting on some less popular football games, it can be hard to find a match especially if you bet large amounts. But otherwise on the more popular bets very good, especially if you like small stakes, they will let you go as small as 50p unlike betfair who only lets you bet 2 GBP minimum stakes.

Always lovely to talk to irish lady who sounds like gloria honeyford I always get on the phone when I call them up. Although it lacks a chat module, it's not a problem as she always gives me such wonderful service, first time I used them, she gave me 30 pounds bonus for using their site for first time. Now the real beauty of this site is not so much the fact you can back and lay, but the fact you can get the best odds alongside betfair you'll ever come across as a backer, the sort of odds that will bring you out in profit much more so than with the bookies using a sound staking plan that allows for the longer than expected losing run. Betdaq don't have any problem or resentment with you making money out of them as they just make their monies on commissions and have no interest in the result. For this I give them a full 5 marks, but avoid for laying unless you have the self discipline to set a bookies rate liability and stick strictly to it irrespective of whether you get matched or not, otherwise you'll just be funding a punter's big win at an overall loss to yourself, but again for backers odds a full 5 marks.

Their back odds are really superb and I mean superb, they don't mind if you win and make a profit because they're not the ones paying, the one paying is the other person you're betting against. Despite the fact that laying to lose might seem like an easy option though, bear in mind the punter often asks for prices that are absurdly unrealistic by a normal bookie's standards and when the punter wins, he will have recuperated all previous losses and made a nice little profit at your expense. But for punters it's the place to bet and as such I have to award a full 5 marks.

If you're a professional back gambler or even a novice backer who just wants a better deal, why not use betdaq, they're doing a 200 pounds promo and the best sort of odds anywhere as you are just betting against novice, one man band amateur bookmakers (or other more pessimistic gamblers to be more precise) who just think it'll lose, who have no idea how to make laying profitable like a professional bookies firm would, leaving a huge opportunity for backers to actually come out on top with a good, well spread out (not putting all eggs in 1 basket) staking plan and a bit of knowledge of form reading, etc. Don't forget you've got to pay commission of between 2. 9 and 5 % though so factor that into your calcs. If you fancy yourself as bookie though, like I say it's better for backing, it's mug bookie, NOT mug punter on this site.

The place to bet if you're a punter who wants the best odds on the market. You can also lay a selection if you think it's going to lose, but be careful here as the odds tend to be to the punter's advantage, or too much is being asked by the punter in relation to the risk, try for a price you would be prepared to pay if you were a bookie yourself (as that's exactly what you are when laying) and stick by it and hope it gets matched, if it doesn't, it doesn't but that way in long run you'll profit like most bookies invariably do. For punters though it's about the best place to go, so gets top marks from me.

Jointly with Betfair and WBX you usually get the best odds, this pushes my rating of them to 5, however I have deducted a point and reduced it to 4 because the person who designed their website forgot to add a search box, so you have to trawl around to get the bet you were looking for. Don't bother laying though, if I was asked to rate them from that persepective they'd only get a 1 as most lay odds are very much in the punters favour, generally speaking, but for punters it's a close rival to Betfair for odds so they get a four from me.
