Official site BETFAIR (2000)

Betfair was born in 2000 in Great Britain. Initially, this company was interested in sports betting (the main market was the horse racing), with time it has grown in terms of products and services offered until you get to about 4 million customers from over 140 different Countries (including Italy with regular license from AAMS). Betfair, it means own fair bet, is the largest online betting company in the U.K. and around the world, offering, in addition to sports betting, other games such as casino, live casino, poker and bingo.

Betting Exchange

Betfair has always wanted to stand out from the competition by offering something UNIQUE that has revolutionized the world of online gambling, a new mode called Betting Exchange or Bourse of the Bets, or Point and Bank.

The Betting Exchange is a system that allows you to exchange sports betting among the players directly: the buying and selling of shares sports can take place in real-time both before and during the sporting event, or even in the case of an outcome that will occur in the long term (example the championship victory). When operating in the Betting Exchange, the operating platform includes a set of quotas and volumes that represent the offers of bets placed by other players. At this point you can decide to buy (to point a share) or sell (to bank-re a share) the share at the price that you want.

To clarify, Betfair allowed for the first time to the bettor play the part of the bench, to become a bookmaker in short, and to sell the shares. The financial markets using the same principles of this mode, with the difference that instead of exchanging shares, the exchange regards the outcomes of sporting events (quotas) and takes place between two players with opposing opinions. It is like playing the stock exchange. Betfair Exchange on the international website is the leader platform in the world. To avoid confusion, Betfair, in the year 2013, gave two names to its activities:
