Who are they? Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Betadime were founded by the Stoke City chairman Peter Coates in 1974 as Northern Racing and can boast over five million customers worldwide and in excess of 1,700 employees. Now run by Coates’ children Denise (COO) and John (CEO), Betadime were recently disclosed as the 7th largest private company in the UK.
What do I get? New Betadime customers will receive a 100% deposit bonus of up to £200 when they sign up. Having made an initial deposit of a minimum £10, you will then have to play your matched bonus through three times on any market and within 90 days before you are eligible to withdraw.
Odds and sods? You’ll find a great selection of markets at Betadime including a whole host of European Football, US Sports and Specials for Best Bets Today. There’s also a fine separate in-play page that keeps you involved with the action as it unfolds and almost tricks you into forgiving them for those Ray Winstone adverts. To their credit, Betadime’s prices are often standout from their competitors but, despite having shaken off the cruel tag of “Bet £3.65” in reference to their often cautious traders, they still have a tendency to limit those punters on a winning streak – placing them alongside every sane bookmaker in the country.
Taking a punt? The Betadime website is extremely user friendly and easy to navigate even for first time visitors. In spite of the heavy amount of video content, the pages remain fast and responsive with most bets just a few clicks away. Looking for Best Bets Today ?
How can they help? Betadime are rightly proud of their customer service initiative and can offer a helping hand by free phone, call back, email or live chat messenger 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – and that includes Christmas day as BOTB gratefully found out after pulling a clanger prior to the Melbourne Boxing Day Test during the 2006 Ashes.
What else? Betadime lead the way when it comes to the live streaming of a wide range of sports which are easily and quickly accessible providing you have funds in your account. Racing enthusiasts will not be disappointed with the amount of statistical information available and they also have the option to view a horse’s last race. The website also provide an excellent Quick Deposit feature allowing those logging in at 2:58pm on a Saturday afternoon to get their funds in and their football accumulators on within seconds.
If they were in the Premier League…? Despite being kitted out in a questionable green and yellow outfit, both Betadime and Norwich City they have caught the eye of the aficionado in recent years. Once derided in certain quarters, they have achieved quick success under the leadership of talented and ambitious individuals and deserve their place amongst the elite. They will win a lot of new fans this coming season.
