Betdaq is the World’s second largest betting exchange after Betfair and claims to handle in excess of £20M worth of bets every week!

Betdaq started trading in September 2001 and quickly established itself as a market leader in the sports betting exchange market.

Betdaq is a betting exchange, where bets are traded between punters on the site, rather than between a bookie and a punter . Therefore Betdaq has a natural edge over most of its rivals; whereas bookmakers generally have a overhead margin of around 110%, a betting exchange such as Betdaq generally have the overhead at around 101%. This extra margin is what gives betting exchanges the edge in providing better odds for their customers often up to 20% better! The only fee paid at betdaq is a 2% commission on all winnings, which is still a lot less than the standard 5% charged by Betfair…..the world’s largest betting exchange! Even this commission taking into account you generally still get better odds than a traditional bookmaker often in the region of 7% – 5%.

At first glance the Betdaq site looks very complex, but look beyond this and you find a simple to use site, with easy to use navigation to find the markets you are interested in. There aren’t any other notable features to speak of at Betdaq. It really as simple as log in, make your bet, and wait for the result. Bet in-running is allowed on many sports, with markets updated every few seconds.

However there is a downside to Betdaq. As it has a considerably smaller user base than its main competitor Betfair, it is worth checking your bet exists before you make a deposit. As you bet against other players and not against the bookmaker, if someone hasn’t made that bet available you can’t make the bet. If you like to simply bet on football results (win/lose/draw) Betdaq will more than likely offer you better odds, but if you like to place accumulators, or half time/full time on the so called ‘smaller matches’ you will often struggle to get the bet on!

It is certainly worth opening a betdaq accounts for those great odds, but you will definitely need a additional sportbook account for those bets that are not available here!

They must surely offer some signup promotions they are the only bookmaker who aren’t! If they want to ake some of Betfair’s market share they have got to start offering some incentives!
