Best Betting Websites

We look at a number of areas when it comes to selecting the best betting sites and we advise that you read our reviews and guides in full to understand how we reach our decision when it comes to giving each bookmaker a star rating.

These areas include:

Payment Options – The best bookmakers will offer you a range of payment options, as well as instant deposits and speedy withdrawals. 

Range of sports to bet on – Football and horse racing are the two most popular sports to bet on, but punters these days want a wide and varied range of sports and non-sporting markets to bet on.
Range of markets – If an online bookmaker does have a wide range of sports to bet on, they should also be able to offer a number of markets for those sports! A good betting site should be looking to offer multiple betting opportunities, even on minor sports, and we’ll tell you about the ones who do just that.
We’ll also tell you about the bookmakers offering the best odds on various sports.

Fast withdrawals – If you’re a bookmaker who claims it takes five days to process a withdrawal, then you need to buck your ideas up! By fast, we’re taking as close to instant as possible, as we want our winnings!

Free Bets and Bonus Offers – Most betting sites offer some kind of welcome offer to entice new customers, usually in the form of a deposit bonus, a first bet bonus, or a risk-free bet. When it comes to free bet offers, it isn’t always the case that bigger is better, and we’ve looked at every offer out there to be able to tell you about the free bets that are currently available at the best betting sites – both for new and existing customers.

Website and customer service – The best betting sites usually come with a fast-loading, easy to navigate and we’ll tell you about the ones that do – as well as the ones that don’t! We’ve also dealt with customer support on each betting site we review, and can tell you about the ones offering quick support no matter what time it is, as well as the ones who need to up their game (we’re looking at you, betting sites who think it’s OK not to offer Live Chat in the 2020s!).

We have guides to the best betting site regardless of your location, so if you’re in the UK, India, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Japan or anywhere else in the world, we’ll tell you about the online bookmakers currently available in your country!

Best Betting Tips

We offer a wide range of betting tips here at FreeTips.com and our betting tips are completely free.
From our best bet of the day, to daily trebles and accumulators covering a wide range of sports, our team of tipsters provide free daily tips, seven days a week, and we never charge for our sports tips.
We have a track record of providing winning betting tips across multiple sports, with expert tipsters providing daily tips for football, horse racing, basketball, tennis and much more.

In addition to our daily tips and ACCAs, we also regularly provide match previews and betting tips for cricket, golf, boxing, rugby and darts, in addition to US Sports such as the NFL and Major League Baseball.

When it comes to football betting tips, you will find match previews and all the major club and international tournaments and competitions here at FreeTips.com, including the FIFA World Cup, UEFA Champions League and the English Premier League.

Best Sportsbooks

It’s pretty hard to declare one single sportsbook as being the best for multiple criteria. Our team all have their personal favourites, and in terms of the best betting sites, it would be hard to argue against bet365 for several areas, including Live Streaming (the most comprehensive live stream service in the business), fast payouts (we’ve seen winnings back in our bank account just a few minutes after requesting a withdrawal), and range of sports.

Most sportsbooks will try and offer their customer base something different to keep them happy, and that’s partly why new betting sites appear on the scene so often.

The majority of sportsbooks have good levels of coverage when it comes to the bigger and more high-profile sporting events involving football and horse racing, but when it comes to lower profile sports, there is a huge variation in coverage.

The best sports betting sites should offer a wide range of markets for most – if not all - sports, without compromising on odds or the overall betting experience.

The top betting sites should also offer you great customers support, in additional to a good free bet offer, and for existing customers, they should be rewarding loyalty in the form of a free bet or special offer from time to time as well.

Best Bookmakers UK

Online betting in the United Kingdom is big business and there is an ever-growing number of licensed UK bookmakers. Some are better than others and naturally, we have our favourites.

The best betting sites in the UK all tend to have similar offerings, as most focus on the most popular sports for their British customer base. For many, bet365 is seen as the best bookmaker if you’re betting on football, as they offer many markets on a large number of sports, arguably the best live streaming service in the betting industry, plus high odds on the majority of markets. They also have a bigger welcome bonus than many of their competitors (see our guide to Promo Codes to find out more on their new customer offer).

The best UK betting sites also have extensive coverage for fans of horse racing, tennis, cricket, darts and many other sports, most with live in-play betting, and some with live streaming available as well.
All UK betting sites listed on FreeTips.com are fully licenced by the UK Gambling Commission. Our list of the best betting sites does change from time to time as we are continually reviewing the various UK bookmakers. Likewise, we regularly review new betting sites as they launch and are approved for a UKGC license.

Best Betting Sites FAQs

Which bookmakers offer live streaming?

A number of bookies offer live stream access, allowing you to watch and bet on live sport including football, tennis and horse racing.

Live streaming with a betting site is generally free of charge, although you are usually required to have an active betting account (with funds deposited). There may be some restrictions on the live streams you can watch, based on your location (betting sites with rights to show live streaming use your IP address to present the events available to you, and television rights mean certain events are not broadcast in certain countries).

Which are the best bookmakers for Cash Out?

The majority of major bookmakers offer Cash Out on selected markets for their customers.
Cashing out allows you to settle a bet early, either to make a profit before the event has finished, or to cut your losses if your bet looks unlikely to win.

Some betting sites such as bet365 also offer Partial Cash Out, which allows you to partially end your bet before the event has finished, while keeping a percentage of the stake alive until the bet is settled in full.

Betting sites offering Cash Out include bet365, BetVictor, Paddy Power, Unibet and William Hill.

Which bookmakers offers free bets?

The majority of online betting sites offer free bets to new customers. Some bookies occasionally offer free bets for existing customers as well.

Free bets are usually associated with opening an account with an online bookmaker come in several different forms including a risk-free bet, a deposit match bonus, a first bet bonus and occasionally, a no deposit free bet.
