Welcome to the BKTips Bookmakers page. Here I list the best online bookmakers. The list is compiled using a number of different factors. Bookmakers do vary in what they offer customers, so it is important to consider what you are looking for as a punter.
Sign Up Offers & Promotions
This is always one of the main appeals to punters when joining a new bookmaker. Some bookies have much more generous sign up offers than others. Other bookmakers focus on keeping their current customers happy with on-going promotions and bonuses.
In all of my bookmaker reviews I have included details of the sign up offer as well as current bonuses available.
Sports & Markets
As punters we are spoilt in not only the number of different sports we can bet on, but the wide choice of markets now available to us. Some bookmakers offer a better choice than others. It depends what sport you enjoy betting on really. The more obscure the sport, the less markets there are likely to be available. But some bookies will be stronger than others.
If you ever want advice on which bookmaker offers the wider choice of markets on your favourite sport, then feel free to drop me an email.
In-Play Betting Opportunities
In-play betting has become increasing popular with punters having access to their phones pretty much 24/7. So wherever you are, watching a live football match at your mates house or down the pub watching the big fight, you are able to place a bet on your mobile.
Most bookmakers these days have good in-play betting options. It’s not something I do much of as a punter. I feel it’s a bit too inpulsive and it doesn’t give me enough time to way up the stats. But I realise a lot of punters out there do bet in-play so it’s a factor in considering the best online bookmakers.
Bookmakers Customer Service
When deciding on the best online bookmakers, customer service is a very important factor. You should find most bookmakers these days offer customer support throughout the day, not just office hours. Live chat has become a popular method of discussing any issues you may have with your accounts.
With 20 years betting under my belt I’ve had some good and bad customer service experiences and that has helped me when ranking the best online bookmskers.
My Punter Experience
I appreciate every punter will have a different experience with each individual online bookmaker. I’ve factored in my own experiences and which bookmakers I’ve found to offer a better service. I don’t weigh this too heavily in my rankings as I’m aware punters are treated differently by each online bookmaker.
