About Betfair

Betfair is the trading name of The Sporting Exchange Ltd.  Betfair, the market leading betting exchange, was launched in June 2000 and is already the biggest and most successful online betting company in the UK. A betting exchange is a bookmaker which allows punters to bet on prices set by punters themselves rather than by a traditional bookmaker, which, by one independent study, results in Betfair’s odds being 20% better than bookmakers’ starting prices. At peak times the exchange – based on the NYSE – matches up to 12,000 bets a minute.
