About Coral

Coral bookmakers are one of the most recognisable High Street bookmaking brands in the UK.  Established in 1926, they have been a major force in the British bookmaking landscape since the 1970’s and are a long-standing member of the ‘Big Three’ (alongside Ladbrokes and William Hill).

Coral bookmaker’s history dates back 90 years, when founder Joe Coral began on-course bookmaking at greyhound and horse racing tracks.  He opened his first Coral betting shops in 1961 the year bookmaking shops became legal and the company, while having different owners, has grown and grown ever since.

High-Street Presence?

Coral currently operate over 1,850 betting shops in the UK, including ones at Cheltenham, Epsom and Sandown Park racecourses, and they have an additional 870 shops in Italy under their ‘Eurobet’ trading name.  

They are more than a one-trick-pony however and have always kept in touch with the times.  It means they embraced telephone betting during its 1990’s surge in popularity and positively welded themselves to only wagering from day 1.

Other Coral Betting Offers

‘Money back as a Free Bet’ is Coral’s biggest and most notable online concession.  It matches customer’s losses (as a free bet) when a horse they had backed is beaten into second place by a length or less on selected races. The ‘Money back as Coral Free Bets’ concession is also available on all greyhound races that are broadcast on Sky Sports.

Amongst Coral’s football concessions ‘Super Acca Insurance’ is probably the most popular.  The Coral free bets offer sees stakes refunded (as a free bet) up to the value of £25 should one team in a six team+ accumulator let the bet down.  

Furthermore it’s money back if one or two legs in a 9 or 10 fold accumulator fails 11+ fold accumulators are refunded if up to three selections are unsuccessful.

Types of Coral Bets/Markets

Coral bookmakers do not offer an outrageous number of markets on horseracing.  Primarily it is ‘win’, ‘each-way’, ‘forecast’ and ‘betting without’ fodder. There can be a ‘match bet’ or two but bets like ‘winning distance’ of ‘jollies vs rags’ cannot be found.  On the flip side Coral does allow its customers to bet into a plethora of Tote Pools including ‘exotics’ such as ‘Tote Swinger’ and ‘Tote Placepot’.

There are no shortcomings with the Coral football betting markets however and the typical ‘high profile’ match will feature 128 different markets to bet on.

Bells & Whistles

Coral have the services of three active jockeys, a racehorse trainer and a racing journalist writing Blogs for them.  Furthermore footballing legend Alan Shearer is Coral’s brand ambassador who writes a weekly column at

Beyond their odds and markets Coral’s is a great information site listing ‘live scores’, ‘statistics’, ‘results’, ‘news & blogs’ plus all-important ‘live stream’ and ‘Coral Radio’.

Our Verdict – 9/10

There’s plenty of sports covered at Coral and loads of betting markets within them.  A rare but much welcomed feature is their VIP Priority Scheme which rewards customers for their ‘action’ on everything from online casino to sports bets.

We have deducted a single point from a perfect score as Coral’s odds compilers are not renowned for offering outstanding value and we’d like to see a little more fun and panache about their site.
