How To Use Anorak’s Free Big Brother Bet

by | 13th, June 2007

WE are offering a £10 FREE bet on Betfair.

Betfair is a betting exchange. This means you’re betting against your fellow customers, not us.

Think of it like being with a mate in the pub. You’re both watching Chelsea v Liverpool. You think Chelsea will win. Your mate thinks Chelsea won’t win. You’re both convinced you’re right so you agree a price and put a tenner on it. You give your money to your friendly barman, he holds the money during the match then gives the winnings to the winner. Well, Betfair works in a similar way to the barman.

Now, imagine you’re at home. You think Chelsea will win. A person in Australia thinks Chelsea will lose. You’ve never met each other and you never will. At Betfair we anonymously match people from all over the world who have different views on things, and we take a small commission from the winner.

Benefit 1 – You get better odds

We all know that competition makes for a better deal for everyone. That’s why you get better odds with Betfair. At any given moment, thousands of people worldwide are competing against each other to offer better odds. This often means the odds are better than those set by the other online or traditional bookies.

Benefit 2 – backing and laying

A betting exchange means you can ’back’ a selection to win, like you do with a traditional bookie. Or you can take the opposing viewpoint and ’lay’ for your choice to lose. It’s just like when you say to a mate, ’Bet you can’t score from that angle’. So, with lay betting you’re offering odds to other Betfair customers. It’s an entirely different way of betting… and offers you more ways of winning.

Benefit 3 – Bet in-play

Betting in-play rewards quick thinking. With Betfair there’s no reason at all why you shouldn’t back or lay bets right up to the final whistle or the last second of a horserace. And it’s really exciting as everything changes so quickly. Think rain during play is going to affect the outcome of a cricket match? Or a player looks like he’s going to be sent off? Get your in-play bet in early and watch the odds change as events unfold. Our prices can change several times a second – just click ’Refresh’ on your browser to see it in action. You might see “in-play” betting being offered by traditional bookies, but you won’t get anything like the real-time prices you can get with Betfair.

That’s it – why not give it a go!

Best of luck
