Coral Bookmaker Review
Coral were a big presence amongst the bookies on the street, and have in recent years really tried to make themselves a decent presence in the online market too. There’s strong talk that the company is to end up merging with the bigger – yet worse off – Ladbrokes, in order to cut costs. As it stands though, we’re not sure what’s going to come of the reports.
Markets & OddsCoral customers can enjoy a wide range of markets in the sportsbook, whether you are looking at the major soccer markets, or wanting coverage from across the globe from American Football through to Volleyball. The extensiveness of the Coral sportsbook is a feature that really makes the bookmaker stand out. But it is not only the array of markets themselves that impresses, it is the variety in betting depth that exists inside those markets. Naturally the major markets will have more sub-market depth, like a football match, which usually raises well over 100 different types of bets to play on. Coverage on all markets are extensive from across the globe though. The bookmaker also excels at non-sports markets too, such as TV and Political. Great coverage of everything that you are looking for.
Live In-Play BettingCoral were due a big overhaul of their live betting section and thankfully recently that happened. The homepage of the in-play section shows all of the different live events currently being bet on, and it also shows events that are due to start soon. To find out more information on the specific event, click on the event and you will be presented with all of the latest odds and statistics.
Once you’ve accessed an event, instead of the very low key live scores screen along with the odds in the main content area, you now get much more detailed game stats and live odds. There’s plenty of in-play options although the odds section of the screen is seriously crowded and could do with better sorting options.
To get to the in-play section of the website simply click on the ‘Bet In Play’ tab at the top of the page, which can be found second from the left in the top menu.
