Everyone knows it as Betdaq. The global level establishment that holds 7% of the market share, through a total end product that offers some very unique options.
The notion that sets the pace is that this company is serious about sports. In simple terms, the range of markets and events is quite extensive, well researched and well considered. The list looks like this:
- RACING: Horses and greyhounds
- RUGBY: League and Union
- FOOTBALL: All the major leagues and international events

The usual range of markets is available for each sport: Half-time, full time, 1X2, Over/Under, handicaps, home, away, the whole nine yards. Every option is configurable to any format required (Decimal, American, Fractional) for better convenience.
The unique feature in this case is the "Expiry Time", In essence, it allows a bettor to cancel a bet if the course of the event and the market they placed their bets on, does not go according to plan. The option pertains to long term bets and it lets punters withdraw them and then place them again at a later stage when there is a better understanding of the true value of the bet in question.
The site itself works like a charm, Fast, reliable, easy to use and mobile friendly.There is also a downloadable app for Android and iOS.
Over the 21 years that they are in service, the most important thing to say is that they have never backed down from keeping their services to anything less than the best. While, there are always ways to improve, Betdaq is a solid, reliable, trustworthy and very competitive exchange. Their rank as #2 best just says that there are some minor issues to improve upon. The betting experience in store for those that take the step and open an account is one that must be experienced.
