Welcome to 'British Bookmakers', the UK's best resource for comparing online bookmakers and the signup offers they offer new members. With so many bookmakers operating online, it can be difficult to know which are safe and secure betting portals and which aren't.
The 'British Bookmakers' website was set-up in order to tackle that problem with a clear mission to highlight the best online bookmakers as well as those that are best avoided.
Since our launch way back in 2006, our bookmaker reviews and ratings have helped thousands of UK punters find the right online bookmaker to bet at. Visitors visit bookmakers safe in the knowledge that they're betting at nothing but reputable and regulated companies.
Bookmakers Signup Offers
To get the most from betting online it's a good idea to register with as many bookmakers as possible. Not only will you get to claim more bookmaker signup offers, you'll also be able to select from a wider range of bookmakers which increases your ability to bet at the best odds.
If you joined all of the online bookmakers we feature here on 'British Bookmakers' you could walk away with over £700 in free bets - massively increasing your betting budget!
In order to accurately rate the service that bookmakers offer, we've joined, bet and then reviewed each of them over a six month period. Our bookmaker comparison table is a good place to start for an overview of our findings and the ratings we've awarded to each.
The table is just a quick snapshot of our findings, for more detailed information we suggest taking the time to read some of our bookmaker reviews which will give you more of an insight and further analysis of what it's like to bet at each British Bookmaker we feature.
Bookmaker Betting Shops
Although all of the bookmakers that we feature operate online, there are a number that started life out on the UK high street. These include Ladbrokes, Betfred, Coral, PaddyPower and William Hill who still operate around 6,000 betting shops between them.
Prefer to bet at your local betting shop? Check out our betting shop locator tool which makes it real easy to find your nearest bookmaker. Unfortunately high street bookmakers don't offer the free bets that online bookmakers do when opening a new account.
