Coral has over 1500 betting shops and they went online as of 2000. Coral is the third largest UK bookmaker. They offer a full variety of services including sportsbook, games, casino and poker. They do everything they can to attract new clients and keep exciting clients happy. That’s why they offer various promotions and specials almost every day, have great number of markets on all major sports.
Moreover, if you like to bet in old-fashioned way, which means offline, you can go to one of their 1700 betting shops. We should still remember, that Coral are focused on customers from the Great Britain and Italy, that’s why you cannot speak about covering of all clients around the world. But it seems they are happy with what they already have. However, it makes it harder for the international clients to use Coral website, as there are not many languages or currencies available.
Coral’s website design is in blue, green and yellow colors, that makes it more bright and outstanding. Various combination of these colors also helps customers to find their way around. It’s very easy to navigate and it’s nice.
Moreover, homepage is not overflowed with sometimes unnecessary information and promotions. Usually will find what you’re looking for quick and without additional help. There are also quick links and neat menus that makes navigation even simpler.
Money lines and odds
As we have already mentioned Coral offer its services not only online, but also offline. This way they have to take into account not only their online customers, but also those who’d like to go to the betting shop and bet there. It doesn’t affect the wide range of different sports they cover.
You can find markets on all football games (it’s British bookie after all) and horseracing. But it’s definitely not the whole list. In Coral you can bet on American football, Aussie Rules, baseball, UFC/MMA, Gaelic games, ice hockey, rugby, tennis and so on. It’s a list of over 20 kinds of sports, including entertainment.
They do a really good job with football and horseracing with over 140 different money lines including the most rare ones. As to non-sport markets, you can bet commonly on TV-shows, politics and so on. Once again, it’s British bookmaker and that is why you can also find odds on weather.
Coral offer very good odds on the most popular markets. First of all, we should outline their high odds for horseracing, as they probably have the best ones on UK and Irish markets. But if you are not in racing, you will surely find competitive odds on many others sports, including the most popular ones in Britain. We do not recommend to bet only on one bookie, but you should always check Coral prior to some important Champions League game or World Cup.
You can choose whether to display odds in decimal or fraction formats, but it’s something most of their competitors have.
Signing up and bonuses
Coral’s welcome bonus if is not as high as their counterparts offer, but they do have attractive deposit bonus. It’s 400%, which means if you deposit £5 you receive £20. Free bet will be valid within 7 days after first 5 pound deposit, however, you should remember the odds of the first bet should be at least 1.5. on top of that, if you use Coral’s mobile app you can also receive additional £5 bonus.
Coral also offers bunch of great and interesting promotions and specials. However, it depends widely whether you bet on football, horseracing or greyhound racing. It also depends on season and varies according to different circumstances.
Having the major presence in the UK and Italy, Coral sometimes faces serious challenges operating with international users. This way, the only currency available for transactions is pounds, GBP. So if you want to use another currency you will have to convert for example EUR to GBP and there’s really no other option.
Although there is a problem with transactional currency, Coral offer great deal of various payment methods, including MasterCard, Netteler, Skrill, ECO card, Cash In store, bank transfer, Visa/VisaElectron, Maestro, Paysafecard, Paypal, Click and Buy, Ukash.
You should withdraw your money in British pounds, however, always remember you have to withdraw funds using the same way you used to deposit them. Notably, all methods to withdraw are free, except few ones.
Mobile app of Coral is very similar to the main webpage, but it isn’t that good as some other bookies have. But it has the bright side, considering Coral’s mobile app doesn’t have the wide range of functions like others, they are fast to download and overall more stable. Moreover, it’s not overflowed with data, so you can use your mobile phone internet to use it, it will still be fast. And it’s the main advantage of mobile app, so that you could do it fast and right away.
Coral customer support has one serious flaw, it doesn’t work 24/7 and support agents speak only English. This is no good, as it may sometimes create additional problems to those that already exist. Anyway, you can contact their customer services via telephone, message and e-mail. It still offers quality services.
