Coral History

Coral are one of the bookmakers that you would instantly find yourself familiar with. Along with Ladbrokes and William Hill, they blazed a trail in the formative years of the UK betting industry and that reputuation that has been forged out over many years means that people have a certain level of trust and respect for the way they operate. They’ve more than 1,000 retail stores and combined with their telephone service and online platforms, they really do cater for pretty much every kind of betting audience. 

Coral joined in 1999 and cemented their online presence that has existed since 1997, this venture saw Coral become Coral Eurobet. Fast forward a few years and they were acquired by Gala Group in October 2005. This move helped the brand become more versatile for the 21st century and since then they have continued to reaffirm themselves as one of the major players in the British betting industry. Despite the changes to the brand and the ventures they have undertaken, they continue to appeal to customers with their wide range of sports markets and their competitive prices.


Coral Odds and Markets

As mentioned before, Coral are at the forefront of offering their customers value for the money they stake with them, particularly within horse racing and football markets.Coral are pretty competitive when it comes to the prices that they offer on horse racing and football. They make good of their quest to offer punters value by signalling throughout their online platforms that they boast the best prices on these given sports. For horse racing in particular, they offer early prices for their customers before many of the other firms and regualrly deliver enhanced each-way offers (such as extra places) on the big races, these are a lot more common around big events, such as the Grand National, Cheltenham Festival or Royal Ascot.

Coral have made real strides with their football market offerings, especially on the major leagues (Premier League, the Chmpionship and La Liga for example). On these well-watched games, you can get roughly 50 markets before the event has started to have a punt on and that’s not to mention the wide array of markets on offer once the game has kicked-off thanks to the attention that has been placed on in-play markets in recent years. If you have an account with Coral, remember to keep your notifications switched on and check your account section regularly, as they will drop you reminders as to when they have special offers on a given sports event. These offers tend to be on the most watched sporting events (events Coral know you want to have a punt on!) and vary from price boosts to free bet insurance, where if your bet is a losing one, the stake is refunded as a free bet on a stipulated market.


Coral Website

Coral have recently made quite a few improvements to their website, in terms of the layout, user friendliness and the general look of it. There are automated banners with live odds feeds to show you what is about to go off and what price you can get with it, as well as a splashing of their best offers and other ways you can make the most out of your account. The website has a real interactive feel, with features such as ‘Next 5 races’ or widgets that show you popular betting markets with well-backed outcomes to help you get a steer on what the general consensus on a market is.

Coral’s in-play section has also benefited from this update, with the experience being very easy to grasp. There is only a few seconds delay between the interface and the event, so when you see ‘market suspended’, you know you’re following and punting on the action as soon as it happens.

Finding your bets and markets you want to bet on is also easy, with each market clearly categorised and simple to navigate around

Coral Customer Service
