CompareTheBets was developed to help educate users about online betting and bookmakers. We maintain several guides on sports betting that cater for both beginners and more advanced gamblers. We select the best bookmaker websites in the UK and provide user friendly guides on how to use them.
Based in London, we have been established since late 2015 when we began developing the website. At present we’re a team of four. We’ve all got expertise when it comes to sports betting, football analysis and bookmaker bonus offers.
Our mission remains consistent : to help people with their sports betting and use of bookmakers.
Casual gamblers may just want to place a small bet on a big event like the Grand National, whilst more advanced gamblers may be looking for a new customer bonus for a more complex bookmaker that offers Asian markets for them to bet with.
CompareTheBets currently consists of three writers and a social media manager. In time we expect to grow and take on more writers in order to cover a broader range of sports. If you’d like to contribute some content or make some suggestions for the website, please get in touch with us. We’d love to hear from you.
