With Coral, they have a very good promotions for when you first open an account and put on a bet as it results in a €20 free bet. With a minimum of €5 on the table, the free bet will be activated and you can use this on whatever market you wish. Seeing as though you can earn four times the amount of your very first stake, Coral offers a great platform to start your betting career. Of course, only the winnings from the €20 can be withdrawn but there isn’t a certain amount of times the money has to roll over before withdrawing which is a huge benefit. As long as you win the €20 free bet, you can withdraw the winnings or you can keep going to place it in another market.

With the gaming section of Coral, there are numerous offers to be seen but the most famous is their €100,000 jackpot. As you can imagine, this isn’t exactly a walk in the park to win but it is still nice to be in with a chance to win that amount. Each week, you could be in with this very chance by correctly predicting fifteen football game outcomes. With an entry fee of between €1-€20 (this entry fee decides how much of the jackpot you take should you win), this is a good bit of fun to start your weekend before you move on to the serious betting for the day.
Forming in 1926, Coral is one of the oldest bookmakers in the world and has grown through the years to include sports, gaming, poker, and casino sections to their portfolio. Nowadays, they are actually a subsidiary of the Gala Group, based in Japan, after a merger between the two; Gala has a slightly shorter history having formed in the early 1990s.
Nowadays, 20,000 employees work for Coral split between online services, behind-the-scenes, and then in their 1,800 different shops across the UK. At first, Coral was one of the rare companies to have all their main offices within the UK but this soon changed after most of the gaming division made the move to Gibraltar. If you have ever heard of ‘Eurobet’, this is actually a part of Coral and they have a few hundred stores in Italy where the name has become commonplace.
Despite having a longer history than many others, the services they offer are very much the same so you will find thousands of different markets when it comes to US sports, Gaelic Games, Football, and more. If you prefer virtual sports, this is also available should you run out of options in real events. With the various platforms of Coral that are now available, any potential account you open will be accessible regardless of the time of day and of where you are in the world.
In recent years, Coral has also introduced in-play betting like many others and the odds within this niche are extremely competitive. In Football markets in particular, they promise to offer the best odds and customers regularly find the best odds in every game in certain leagues or competitions which can be great for building accumulators. Speaking of which, Coral is known for its enhanced odds accas as well as enhanced odds on certain selections. In addition to having a TV channel, Coral also owns a radio station which both allow you to keep up-to-date with the goings on in the sporting world.
Although it seems to have become common practice these days, you can’t underestimate the value of a dedicated customer support team and this is exactly what Coral has got in place. Whether it is on the phones, via email, or on social media, the Coral team often work late into the night to remain contactable for all customers. Furthermore, there is also a messaging function on the site which can be useful for quick resolutions to problems or answers to questions.
