Gap

Sponsored Post, although content contains solely the opinion of watchraces.co.uk >> At WatchRaces.co.uk, a hugh portion of our visitors are bettors and it's for that reason that we spent a good few weeks trawling through a huge selection of online bookies to bring you our in depth 10 ten list! It took a while to compile and we've checked each bookmaker thoroughly so you can be sure that any choice out of our top ten list will be a good one!

Of course, you might just be looking for a new bookmaker to try or to see a comparison of the top ten and that's why we have produced the handy table below to get you started! Whether you are looking for mobile compatibility or live streaming, we've outlined all the important details in one easy to read table!

How did we compile the ordering of the top ten list?
Line

It took myself and 3 others a few weeks to get this list all compiled and then narrow it down to the Top 5. In the process, there were around 20 or so bookmakers we disregarded from the final list due to either poor customer service or a failure in providing a good service in regards to horse racing betting.

Several factors were taken into consideration in making the final 10, but most notably of these were:

  • Ease of use of the website

  • Racing Odds

  • Customer Service

  • Mobile/Tablet Compatibility

We are pleased to say that the final 5 websites all passed our testing via our desktop, an iPhone & Samsung Galaxy as well as an iPad. Signup, navigation, betting and live streaming were all in-tact.

Selecting a racing bookie that suits you
Line

We believe our top 5 list is the absolute definitive for horse racing fans, and if you're a regular bettor and don't have an account with any of the above sites, the top 5 at the very least are all worth joining. However, we realise that everyone has their own specific requirements and things that matters to them, like everything in life - some people choose fancy cars, some people choose fast cars and some won't care if they are driving an old banger down to the shops, as long as it works!

Some handy hints and advice:
* If it's live streaming you are after, for UK/Irish races - choose Bet365, Coral. If you want live video of US and Canadian races, choose Betfair. T&C Always applies and remember that streams are geo-restricted and always require an active bet to watch. 18+ Only.

At the end of the day, it's worth trying a few before you commit, so you can bookmark us and check the Top 5 regularly to try out a new bookmaker for your racing bets. We think you'll be happy with out Top 5 recommendations but if you've spotted a flaw or have some feedback - contact us here.
