  • How do the ratings work for the OLBG Bookmaker Reviews?

    Our members are asked to rate each bookmaker out of 5. You will see that we have listed 100s of reviews for sportsbooks. The most popular bookmaker reviewed has over 100 reviews and at the time of writing a rating of 4.7/5. This is the average rating from all the user reviews.

    If you go to the specific bookmaker page, for example bet 365 bookmaker review you will be able to read each of the individual reviews which make up this rating. You will see for this bookmaker that most of the reviews are 5 star.

    At the time of writing there is just the one review with a 1 star rating, the minimum that can be allocated. Read the comments to understand if this bookmaker will be the best for you. Each review is also rated itself so we can list what users think are the most helpful reviews at the top of the page. 

    We publish all reviews unedited as long as they do not contain any swearing, potentially libellous content or individual specific dispute content. Where users have individual and specific disputes with online bookmakers we feel that they should discuss these directly with the bookmaker, rather than creating a review. OLBG has always been happy to offer help and advice in dealing with such disputes. 

  • Reasons why a bookmaker may achieve a high rating at OLBG

    We have reviewed all the bookmaker reviews submitted to OLBG to try to understand why our members may rate a bookmaker highly. These are some of the key reasons. 

    • Great odds
    • Easy to use site/app/mobile site
    • Good bonuses and offers - not just the sign up offer but regular loyalty offers and bonuses
    • Good live streaming of horse racing, football and other hard to find or not covered on TV sports. 
    • Great coverage of events and markets. Users dont want to have to change bookie to find the event or market they want to bet on. 
    • Excellent customer service
    • Good provision of in play markets and betting opportunities 
    • Pricing markets up early. The evening before for horse racing. 
    • Dont restrict winning accounts
  • Reasons why online bookmakers are rated poorly by OLBG

    These are some of the key reasons given by OLBG members for giving low bookmaker review ratings.

    • Confusing opening account offers or big requirements to turnover many times initial deposit and bonus before withdrawal
    • Hard to use, navigate site making it hard to find the event users want to bet on 
    • No or poor ongoing offers and bonuses for existing users
    • Poor odds
    • Poor coverage - no odds on events/markets that a user wants to bet on 
    • Poor customer service - slow, unhelpful, no chat facility. 
    • Limit bets. Especially when they limit very soon after opening an account. 
    • Charges - on deposits for example.
