The second sports betting exchange to appear on the UK’s betting landscape, Betdaq was founded by Irish businessman Dermot Desmond who understood the ‘buy and sell’ exchange concept well having made his fortune by trading international currency markets.
Ladbrokes purchased and took control of the Betdaq betting exchange in 2013 and gave it some fresh liquidity by introducing it to their customers. Currently Betdaq Exchange betting markets are available on all major sporting events with football and horseracing topping the bill.
With the Betdaq exchange being something very different to conventional betting the site has adopted a policy whereby new customers have to turnover their funds before being awarded the Betdaq cash-back worth £1000.
To gauge ‘turnover’ Betdaq issue new customers with ‘Commission Points’ awarding one for every £25 wagered, this is regardless of a customer’s trades being winners or losers. New customers need to earn four such Commission Points and/or show a cumulative profit or loss totalling £100 to receive the Betdaq free bet worth £25.
When you bet on Betdaq – the second largest betting exchange on the site – you can guarantee you are getting a good deal when you join the site. The betting markets are huge, with over 20 different sports, but horse racing is a particularly good deal. In fact, horse racing is one of the biggest sports on the site, with the homepage displaying all of the latest races and betting odds.
The betting exchange platform has more than enough races for regular punters. There are daily horse races, with massive events to bet on every hour. You can also bet on the popular antepost races – arguably offering the real action. Add to that, there are major tournaments – including the Melbourne Cup, Grand National, Epsom Derby and other huge races. These horse meets don’t just stretch the UK & Ireland, but also South Africa, Dubai and even America. When it comes to these events, you can also use the welcome bonus to make your fortune and get the most bang for your buck. For every new punter that bets £10 on the betting site, the customer will receive £10 back to spend on the impressive sportsbook and horse racing.
Betdaq are one of the impressive bookmakers that offers a site that works well on your device, as well as a dedicated mobile app that can be downloaded for Android and iOS users. The app is an exact replica of the actual betting exchange site, so you’ll know how to play if you are familiar with the website. The colour scheme, format and menu navigation are the same, and make it easy to get around the site and load pages within seconds. In some cases, it’s easier to place a bet on the app as the pages are extremely responsive, with the betslip quick to load.
The betting exchange site offers all of the brilliant odds and markets on the app, and also if you access through the browser. If you are into live betting, you’ll enjoy the platform on the app – especially with professional proform guides available on the horse racing. Add to that, you can watch those horse races – along with greyhound races – on your device, which means you can keep up to date with your bets. Another major bonus to the mobile app is the ability to customise betting selections in your account.
Joining Betdaq is very simple, it is done on one form divided into three sets of questions. It will appear after clicking ‘Join Now’ at the top of the Betdaq homepage.
