Betdaq Review 2018 - Sports Betting Review

Betdaq have been around for some time now, when Dermot Desmond decided to create a website where fans could all get together and bet with and against each other. So that is why this is a betting exchange and really one of the forerunners of the innovative format. They were formed back in 2000 by the Irish businessmen and in 2013, major bookmaker Ladbrokes swept in and acquired them. They have a lot of weight in the industry because they are the second largest betting exchange operator running at the moment in the UK.

Betting markets and odds quality 7/10

As you are on a betting exchange you would expect the value of odds to be pretty good. They are and being an exchange you get to define your own odds and hope to have them matched. You can spend a lot of time looking around at tweaking your odds or you can just have a quick click on a popular price that is there. You can enjoy things like multiples on the exchange as well, so there is really good variety and market value around for your betting with Betdaq. Of course though, the real value to the punter is in how much commission you would be paying.

Commission is paid on net winnings in a market and you don’t pay if you don’t win. There is a Normal Commission Rate which stats at 5%. However, you can bring that rate down to as low as 2%. How? Well that will depend on the number of bets that you have matched. You can earn a commission point for each £25 won or lost across exchange markets. Rack up enough points and you could have a commision discount rate running. This is assessed on a weekly basis. Getting the commission down to a lower rate may be an expensive thing for a novice or casual partner. It seems to us that there is more preference here towards the heavier-bettor.

In-play betting 6/10

You have in play available on the betting exchange and it’s not a bad service actually. The latest happening markets are right there on the main screen so you can quickly skip to a market. The in play overview page is nice actually because you can see the betting prices for the Back and Lay options on a market selection and go straight from there, or you can of course go into more detail for a match by clicking on that match. There is the nice touch of stats running alongside any market selection and you can filter the display even by the amount of stake that you are thinking to place, which is a nice feature.

You can filter the sport that you don’t want to see on the in-play overview as well if you like, to clean things up even more. Everything is nicely presented the odds are clear. When we did go and look at the site for reviewing, we noticed that perhaps there weren’t that many live in-play betting opportunities knocking around. We have seen the traditional bookmakers carry more weight in that department.

Extras & features 8/10

So other things that you have going on at Betdaq include a Colossus page. This is pool betting and betting site runs a lot of different one for you. For example when we looked there was a £10 million Colossus running where you would need to land seven correct scores to earn yourself what would be a life changing jackpot. Of course, multiple winners of a pool would be sharing the jackpot prize. The yrun other pools, not just that one of course and you get options like Pick 4 or Pick 5 and this can either be on correct scores or 1x2 results. So plenty of variety and this is a great feature alongside your regular betting.

Not only that, they have partial cash out available a well. So you can back some profit on your pool tickets without them having to come to full term. This is a brilliant option, because if you have three selections correct out of four for example and you are getting nervous, you could pull part of the bet out and then leave the rest riding to see if it comes up. That offers great control for your betting and something we haven’t seen anywhere else on the pool betting.

Betdaq also run Trading Tools where if you want to become a trader you can find all of the information needed there. You Will need to download some somewhere and get yourself set up if you want to get into the trading. There are free options there. There is virtual betting available as well on the website as well as a good Tips section that can come in useful for you.

Betdaq payment options - deposit and withdrawal methods 7/10

There is 0% charges on UK and Irish Debit Cards, while Credit Cards will take a 1.5% charge on all deposits and there is no charge on ewallet deposits.

User-friendliness of website & mobile app / mobile version 8/10

The layout of the website is much, much better than it used to be. It is actually nice and user friendly because how fresh it looks and feels. Getting around the different markets is no problem at all and the odds presentation is nice. You actually switch between the new site and the classic site, but we recommend sticking with the new one as it much easier to use and better on the eye. There is a mobile version of the website that you can visit through any mobile device and there are dedicated apps for Android and iOS as well. The apps feature things like live streaming, race guides and enhanced specials.

Betdaq Customer Service & Support, Security & Reliability 7/10

There is good customer support available and you can give them a call at 08701781 021 from the UK and 01 673 3360 from Ireland. There is an email point of contact as well, and they can be reached through helpdesk@betdaq.com but there was no explanation of times when to contact them or the expected answer time. There is a decent knowledge base on there as well that you can browse through or search for answers.

Overall / Conclusion 7/10



We are cutting a few points because there are some big features missing and they seem to lean towards punters who are going to be betting heavily on a regular basis. It is a basic betting exchange service but there are nice features knocking around the site, like the Colossus, which punters should appreciate. Overall pretty average.
