Coral Review

Coral are one of the oldest bookmakers in the world dating back to trades made in 1926. Since then the company were – as of 2005 - the third largest bookmaker in the world, mainly down to the acquisition of the then Coral Eurobet for £2.18 billion.

Whilst Coral invest a lot of resources in their sports betting, it’s the casino and bingo aspects of the company that make it into the gambling portal that it is. Unlike most modern day betting companies it still relies heavily on its brick and mortar business with over 1700 licensed betting offices around the world. On top of that over 30 state of the art casinos are found in the UK alone making it very much a gambling portal, rather than simply a bookmaker.

Welcome Bonus

New users to Coral can claim a free bet worth £20 by signing up, depositing and betting £5 at odds of 1/2 (1.5) or more on any sport. The £5 bet must be placed within 14 days of registering, so don't dilly dally!

The free bet will be credited to your account once your qualifying bet has been placed, after which you'll have 7 days to use it. The full free bet must be used in one go and can be bet on any sport.


The design of the Coral betting site is simply stunning – something that we would have never written just a few years ago. They have managed to replace their dated sports betting site with a modern, slick and easy to navigate betting site.

We touched upon earlier in the article about how Coral was more than just a bookmaker, and it’s very apparent on their site that this is the case. They have a massive bingo, casino and poker area for its users to use, all under one account.

Coupons such as Goals Galore, Both Teams To Score and other betting coupons are the ‘in thing’ when it comes to betting at the minute and Coral have managed to produce a range of these feature markets for its punters. Their odds are up there with some of the most competitive in the industry, coupled with the range of sports and markets in which you can bet on make it an easy pick.

One thing we really liked at the bookmaker is the integration of Coral Radio. The station provides news, information, results and betting tips from a variety of sports including football, cricket, horse racing, greyhound racing and a generic sports station. Each includes professionals from each discipline giving you free information for each sport.
