Coral Sports Review

 

Coral, one half of the Gala Coral Group, owns a huge betting empire of over 1700 shops in the United Kingdom as of October 2011. It also has hundreds of bookmakers in Italy, which trade under the Eurobet name.

 

The business began in 1926, when Joe Coral borrowed cash from a local cafe owner. From there, the business grew to incorporate greyhound courses and speedway meetings, and Joe was one of the first bookies to take advantage of the 1960 legislation which allowed betting shops to be opened away from the sports track. The first shop was opened in 1961.

 

By 1981, Coral was one of the biggest leisure groups in the UK, with around 650 shops, social clubs, greyhound stadiums, hotels, clown schools, holiday camps, and social clubs. Bass bought the company out and while the shops retained the Coral name, the other leisure operations were integrated into Bass.

 

In 1997, the Ladbrokes' group acquired Coral from Bass, although the acquisition was investigated by the UK Monopolies and Mergers Commission. They concluded that Ladbrokes' should not be allowed to retain their ownership of Coral, and the group was sold in 1999.

 

Nowadays, Coral employs over 11,000 betting shops in the United Kingdom, and it was the first United Kingdom bookmaker to sign up to Turf TV in December 2007.


To bring the story up to date, in November 2011, Coral announced a move to Stratford City, opposite the Olympic Stadium in East London.

 

Interface

 

This sportsbook site is refreshingly simple, and is obviously designed for functionality and speedy navigation. The site is bedecked in bright blue and green, with quick links to football, greyhounds, horse racing, tennis, and favourites down the left-hand side of the screen. A series of menus across the top brings down football jackpots, Lucky 7, casino, live casino, bingo, poker, Coral TV, and Coral Radio.


Thanks to this simple layout, the pages load up quickly – there are no flashing banners, graphics or images to slow down proceedings. An overview page for each section means that can view all main events quickly and easily, which comes in handy if you're in a hurry to place your bets.

 

One feature I particularly enjoyed was the ability to launch a Mini Slot Game on the right-hand side of the screen. This gives you the opportunity to win cash while you're waiting for your horse to streak over the finish line – can you make it a double whammy?

 

There's an interesting non-sports section, which includes celebrity specials, Christmas specials, music specials, political bets, Royal wagers, TV specials, and weather specials.

 

Listen to Coral Radio or watch Coral TV – both are on air around the clock.

 

Depositing/bonuses

 

The minimum stake for a single bet is £1. If you want to place multiple bets such as accumulators and speciality bets, the minimum is 10p. The maximum payout for greyhound racing is £10,000, and the maximum payout is £100,000.

 

Security

 

Coral is a member of the International Betting Arbitration Service, and your personal details are guarded behind the fiercest of firewalls.

 

Bonuses

 

Hallelujah – at last, a bookmaker that's creative and generous with those special offers.

 

Sign up to Coral now, and you'll get your first bet up to £50 matched with 100% cash match.

 

Get in the game with Rapid Fire Markets – bet on fast-moving football events such as Free Kick, Goal Kick and Corner Kick.

 

There are plenty of daily promotions as well – at time of press, there was Money Back if Arsenal won against Manchester United.

 

In Free Bets For winners, if you back a winner at more than 3/1, you'll get your stake matched up to £10 per race.

 

Plus, there's Money Back if Your Horse Falls, but only if you use the mobile service.
