The “Betfair” brand is not only about an online casino, this big British brand also offers gaming solutions in sports betting, arcade games, exchange games and poker. They are a well recognised brand world-wide and as well as Europe and the UK, they are licensed to operate in Australia. For the purposes of the online casino, licensing is regulated under the Lotteries & Gaming Authority, Malta, but they also use Gibraltar and Tasmania as licensing jurisdictions. Quite notably this site is the pioneer of the very first betting exchange. Betting exchanges differ from bookmakers to quite a degree in that members leverage from each others wagers.
They are official betting partners for Manchester United, and are closely connected to both FIFA and UEFA; just from these alignments we can tell they are an above-board brand. This allows us confidence to play with any of the products they offer us online. Being an Australian parent company, fairness and integrity come first, and they manage well to offer gambling services which work hand in hand with ethos. A certificate is published at the site which maintains they take the lowest margins in the industry and Betfair also won the Queens Award for Enterprise back in 2008. It is a multi-language, multi-currency site which is perfect for European gamblers, and although they offer the US$ as a currency they do not allow US players at their sites.
The software at this site is proprietary (specifically designed) software, but driven by the Playtech software platform, which as we know is a world leader. It is a really beautiful site which is easy to use and the features are brilliant too. Security is obviously of concern, so state-of-the art encryption is part of the deal for players at Betfair. They are Verisign secure, which means 128 and 256-bit SSL encryption technology is used. Customer service is 24/7 and may be contacted by email, telephone and live chat.
Banking options for deposits and withdrawals includes Visa, Visa Electron, Visa Delta, MasterCard, Maestro, Solo and Laser. There are probably eWallet options too, check this out in the banking or cashier section of the site.
Being on the Playtech software platform means access to hundreds of different games including networked progressive jackpot prizes. The software is free to download and games may also be played through Flash.
