The list of recommended bookmakers on a betting site is an obligation, and we will let it grow. We have been thinking for weeks how to present the bookmakers in a different way and how to add a value to it. We were considering implementing a voting system, but from our experience punters vote based on the betting success. In any case we later allow the community to comment, review and discuss the bookies and share personal experience.

What is the difference between a good and a bad bookmaker?

This is the most crucial question of all. In the UK, just like in many other countries is the sports betting market regulated. The player's protection is guaranteed by local gaming authorities and that means "the good old times" when a bookie didn't pay out your win without punishment is gone. In the UK you are protected. If you are from a different country make sure to check the legislation.

So what does it mean in the UK to be a good bookmaker? Let me tell you my answer. I care for protection, fast payments and responsive customer support.

How do I choose the bookmaker for my bets? I have opened many accounts and place bets with the one offering the highest odds. Simple as that. Make sure to use critical thinking and come up with your own answer to this question. In the past I paid hard many times for my approach (especially when betting by unlicensed bookmakers).
