Coral Bookmaker Review
Coral are one of the most famous names on the UK high street. They have been around for years and as such have carved themselves a unique spot in the sports betting market. But they almost missed the boat when the online betting boom caught them napping.
They were slow to get their website up to scratch. This undoubtedly lost them a lot of loyal customers and potential new ones. As a result they have worked very hard to play catch up in the intervening years.
Integrating their online services and high street services was a masterstroke. Hence the ability to collect online winnings on the high street. The Coral Connect card allows you to have one account and bet across multiple platforms including in shops.
This is a massive convenience for punters who like to mix it up. And no doubt has served some punters well who have found themselves caught short on a night out.
But it’s their bread and butter that keeps them popular and that is something they still do very well. They are very competitive with prices and have some of the best promotions and markets available. They of course cover all UK football markets extensively as well as other features like casino, poker, and games.
The website has caught up with the modern era and they stream all sports from football to tennis and golf. But it still has some gremlins that occasionally make it difficult to log in and place a bet. I often find myself having to resort to a mobile phone to get a bet on.
But that is the only complaint I can have with Coral. Their sign up bonuses are standard but they often release specials that offer lots of extra value for specific events.
