I think it's 'Victor Chandler' who are based in Gibraltar, (or maybe one of the Chanel Islands.) If so, they may give better odds. Can't be much more help than that I'm afraid. I have an on-line account with a home bookie, and for the size of my stakes half a point or so is neither here nor there.
Thanks chalky, Ivanhoe, yeah that is annoying!! Done a bit of research and there's an online petition to make it so we can get anywhere in the EU at right2bet.net. But still not anywhere in the world (obviously).
I think i'm just gonna stick with the home bookies - like you said chalky, it doesn't make a massive difference but still i don't like to think i'm losing out on anything lol!
I guess you use oddschecker already? And have accounts with the main UK bookies, in order to take best prices? And keep an eye out for all the new account offers in the press?
Without getting into the exchanges, I think that's the best you can do currently.
Different bookies are better/worse for different sports, especially if you follow less popular sports (I follow Rugby League, and some of the big bookies are very poor on RL bets, whereas they may be much more competitive on, say, football).
I don't know abiout others, but William Hill have a 'Best odds guarantee.' If you take an early price and your horse drifts in the betting and then wins, you get the winning s.p. I know that don't happen too often, but I have benefitted from it a few times.
