Coral bookies currently operate 1,800 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.
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’ bets.
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 Coral.co.uk.
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’.
Ways to Bet at Coral
The established Coral phone line remains in place, 0800 444040, but the company now take considerably more wagers via its excellent Mobile apps and traditional online interface.
Coral Customer Service
Should Coral’s in-depth ‘Help Centre’ not answer your questions you will soon be redirected to Coral’s contact methods section where their phone lines, live chat and email details are listed.
Payments & Withdrawals
Coral Bookmakers offers all the popular payment methods and some of the ‘up and comers’ such as PayPal, PaySafe, Neteller, Skrill etc.
They have also recently introduced a Coral Connect Card which allows customers to deposit and withdraw winnings, in cash, from any of their 1,800 betting shops. To help with this there is a convenient ‘shop locator’.
Our Verdict – 4.5 stars
There’s plenty of sports covered at Coral Sports 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 half a star from a perfect score as the Coral odds compilers are not renowned for offering outstanding value and we’d like to see a little more fun and panache about their site.
