Sports betting offer at Coral

First of all, Coral can be proud of its wide sports betting offer, especially on football, tennis and horse racing. Coral has definitely done a great job here, as only a couple of top online bookmakers can provide something similar. However, it does not mean that ice hockey, basketball and even golf and badminton fans will be disappointed. Something for themselves will also find fans of politics and public affairs. What is more, all of these markets come along with quite decent margins and really attractive prices.

Livebetting at Coral

Coral livebetting section is also presented quite well. Clients can find markets for a bunch of popular sporting events, provided with a variety of useful statistics and live streams. As for live streams, the situation does not look too great comparing to the competition. Coral does not offer more than 5000 transmissions annually, which is not too much. Punters from the UK must be the most satisfied since the majority of provided live streams are dedicated to horse-racing and greyhound.

Esports betting offer at Coral

Punters will also be able to find various esports markets at Coral, however, it is definitely not one of the most competitive offers out there. You can only find markets and betting options for the following esports disciplines: CS:GO, League of Legends, Dota 2. The number of markets for each discipline is also not very impressive. Therefore, if you are looking for a decent esports betting offer, Coral will not be the best place for that.

Virtual sports betting offer at Coral

Virtual sports betting offer is looking quite better at Coral. A couple of available disciplines, good variety of betting options and live streams is exactly what every virtual sports fan is looking for. You can find markets for the following virtual sports disciplines: horse racing, greyhound, football, tennis, motor sports, speedway, cycling and even darts. Just to say the least, Coral's virtual sports betting section really stands out among the competition.

Coral mobile application

We can make this statement without any second thought - Coral mobile application is one of the most well-designed, smooth and user-friendly apps in the whole bookmaking industry. It perfectly works on the majority of mobile devices and operating systems and offers all the features of the traditional desktop website.

Customer support at Coral

Similar to many top online bookmakers, Coral’s customer support department looks quite decently. We can contact the customer service in a couple of ways: live chat, email and hotline. Moreover, the response time is more than satisfying. You can always count on your inquiries being solved really quickly, as the staff is always competent and ready to help. There is a nice FAQ section for those who like to figure out things on their own. Clients can find answers to the majority of the most common issues.

Payment options at Coral

Nothing special, however, surprising is the fact that Coral does not list a traditional bank transfer as one of its payment methods. Still, the bookmaker accepts the majority of the most popular payment options. Therefore, making a deposit and withdrawing the money should not be a problem. Not to forget, Coral accepts USD, SEK, EUR besides the more popular among British punters - GBP.

Our opinion about Coral

Bookmaker Coral might not be an ideal operator but is definitely just barely behind those at the very top of bookmaking industry. There are few things that might bother Coral’s clients. Some of those are the lack of Asian handicaps and Asian goal lines. However, on the other hand, you get the highest possible funds safety and reliability, which makes your experience with Coral stress-free.

coral is a definition of a traditional sportsbook but online or, if a may, a traditional online sportsbook, but this model is a bit outdated and I doubt it will last much longer...

maybe ladbrokes/coral do not offer lots of bonuses every day but their markets and prices are always on point thats for sure

both coral and ladbrokes must change something before they get eaten by the competition

hate the fact that they are a part of an almost monopolistic betting group. gambling commission should not allow it

Richard, they feed on all who are not aware of odds, some people just come in and want to bet not having checked this important factor. For profs with so low odds, there is no chance of profits, maybe only for a lucky combo. Bet365 is probably the best bookie in the World, on the other hand, Unibet is pretending to be the best too and year after year comes closer to the bet365, now between them is a very tiny contrast. Good Luck with bets and don't let your money run away bet at higher odds!

worst bookmakers shop for service ever.. their slot tournaments are a complete con. i had several issues with them.

The first issue was with the machines that i played after inserting a games voucher i had won in a promotion, which i am glad to say has been resolved although it has taken several weeks to do so.

The second was when myself and my partner visited our local store to take part in a "beat the bookie tournament".
We were told by the young man serving that we could not take part as he was on his own and did not have time to set the machine for tournament play for us, yet he had done so for others who were there.

The third and probably most annoying was when i visited the local store again and played the slot tournament for leader board, to win £25 free play. I had played this before in other stores and know the time for the tournament to end was 2pm.
I arrived at 13:50pm and asked the cashier who was having a smoke outside the store if i could play the tournament. She replied that i would have to be quick as it was to end at 2pm

I played the tournament and ended up top of the leader board.. so i said i would pop back in 10 minutes to see if i was still top.. as it was due to end then, and she said ok .. as i was the high scorer.

I returned and i was still the leader after 2pm so i had won, although i thought. They then proceeded to tell me that they had now decided to carry on the tournament beyond the 2pm finish time, even though i had been adamantly told it finished at 2pm. As far as i was concerned i had won and changing the finish time at the very last minute is like someone betting on a horse, the horse wins and the marshals say ..sorry we going to do another 2 laps to have best of three races.

I checked with my other stores who all finished their tournaments at the correct time of 2pm, and none of those managers in those stores could understand or agree with why the keelings road store would suddenly refuse me as winner and carry on the tournament for longer than the allotted time , when i was clearly top of the board at the correct finish time of 2pm.

I telephoned customer services, who rang the shop in question who said that they had been told by their manager to carry on promoting the tournament... to see if anyone else would ask to play,.. does this make sense to do when the tournament was already won by the correct finish time of 2pm?

I can only assume that they were waiting for one of their favourite regulars to play and beat the winning score, so to do so they were prepared to change the rules of the tournament... totally unprofessional in my eyes.
I was a regular customer there, and would place many bets.. but in future will be visiting another brand. Terrible service, lazy and rude staff an unpleasant bookmakers all round.

worst betting site ever, i would honestly rather not put a bet on at all than put one on with this site. disgraceful customer service who are absolute idiots, no cash out option, live casino is terrible dont think i have ever won on it and the people dealing just look guilty. do yourself a favour and avoid this company. I lost 1000 on betfair but i would still chose it over this
