Coral Live In-play Betting
You can bet in-play at Coral just like most other modern sportsbooks. Their system is really nice and includes live streaming and live scores direct on their site.
The layout for betting is one of our favourite and it’s really easy to place bets.
Coral Website design and features
Coral uses its experience in the market to create a well-designed and user-friendly site that encompasses all the modern features that a bookmaker should include.
The Coral blue theme runs throughout and gives you a feeling that you are using a trusted service. The pages hold a lot of information, however it’s laid out nicely for easy access. There is a sport navigation bar down the left-hand side. You can also add shortcuts to pages you often go to. We really liked this feature as it speeds up navigation a lot!
As you’d expect, Coral offers you loads of sports to bet on (actually one of the biggest lists), and these range from football to UFC. Within them, there are loads of markets to choose from. Don’t miss the special non-sports bets, where you can bet on movies, music and politics as well.
The free bet welcome offer is top-notch. You only have to bet £5 and are rewarded with four £5 free bets. That’s a 400% bonus! They also don’t require a promo code, so it’s easy to claim the offer.
Live betting and streaming are present in the service and work very well. We also tried out the live chat and got an immediate response so were happy with that!
Overall, Coral is a bookmaker that we can’t fault!
