If you’re looking for a safe, reliable and well-known bookmaker to place your bets with, you can stop here. Everything you’re looking for in a bookmaker and some other things you didn’t even know you wanted to find are brought to you by Coral, one of the best betting companies in the United Kingdom and internationally, both when it comes to high street shops and online betting. As the bigger half of the Gala Coral Group, Coral has over 1800 betting shops in the UK alone, as well as hundreds of others in Italy (owned by its Italian partner, Eurobet).
Joe Coral founded and named after himself in 1929 a tiny bookmaking shop for greyhound pitches and the likes. At that time, betting was not entirely legal, and the company was among the first to acquire a proper sports betting licence in 1960 when it became legally regulated. Since then, Coral went through the capable hands of some renowned names in the business, such as Bass and Ladbrokes, eventually forging a lasting relationship with Eurobet in Italy (thus expanding internationally) and Gala Bingo in the UK, forming what now is the Gala Coral Interactive Group. Within its 90 years of activity, Coral has become one of the most trusted British fixed-odds bookmakers and, after all these years, it’s still increasing its scope of activity as well as its customer base.
There’s a good reason why, after almost a century in the business, Coral is getting stronger by the day, and that is the quality of the services it offers. To begin with, Coral covers quite an impressive number of activities you can wager on. Of course, its main focus is on sports such as football, horseracing, greyhound racing, tennis, golf, ice hockey and other sports that are popular among the majority of the bettors. However, if you’re a rarer breed of punter, worry not: this company caters to your needs as well. For instance, nothing stops you from betting on Gaelic football, motorbike racing, UFC, MMA, or darts. Even more impressively, Coral doesn’t limit itself to sports betting. You can even bet on the season finale of your favourite show, on who the winner of The X-Factor will be, or on who will be elected as the 45th President of the United States.
Coral thus provides you with a most complete offer of things to bet on, from the most popular to the niche. What’s more, you don’t have to stop at betting on somebody else’s result. Instead, you can turn at any time towards Coral’s online gambling division or its poker website and make an attempt at winning the big jackpot through your own abilities in addition to your luck. All in all, Coral offers not only a wide range of betting activities, but also a well-rounded palette of other things to keep you entertained while also giving you the chance to get up from your armchair quite a lot richer than when you stood down.
