bet365 has grown from humble origins to become one of the biggest and most popular bookmakers in the world.

Both via the desktop and on mobile devices, the bet365 service is easy to understand and use, and includes a great variety of excellent features. At times I’ve found the desktop version of the site a little clumsy but after a while you just get used to it. There’s definite room for improvement there though.

They have a wide selection of markets from popular events such as football and horse racing, through to so-called minority sports such as trotting, speedway and pool. bet365 will frequently offer the biggest range of side markets and on many occasions, they will be the only bookie with a side bet available for a certain event.

Paddy Power offers an extensive range of different sports available for their punters to bet on and the sheer volume of sports available compares very well with other sites. Indeed, there are some sports, such as Swimming, Sailing, Rowing, Pool and Show Jumping, that are not so easy to find on other sites but which are regularly available at Paddy Power alongside all the more common sports people want to bet on.

Formed in Ireland in 1988 when three existing bookies decided to merge and their presence quickly spread to the UK where betting shops started to spring up across many high streets.

Paddy Power has continued this innovative business approach and has developed a strong reputation as The Punter Friendly Bookmaker and has become renowned for its unique Money Back Specials.
