Betdaq Review

Betdaq is an online betting exchange based in Ireland. Founded in 2000 by Irish entrepreneur Dermot Desmond, the site offers betting markets on a range of international sporting and novelty bets. The company claims to handle in excess of £20m worth of bets every week, by linking punters up to bet against each other.

Due to the unconventional way betting exchanges work, Betdaq claim that they improve odds by as much as 20 percent compared to the high street bookie. This is a big incentive for punters who are always looking to increase their margins. Betdaq has a no nonsense site, with popular bets listed on the homepage for convenience. Its simple platform makes it easy to understand exchanges for those new to this form of betting.

Features - 7.5/10

The first thing that hits you when you log onto the homepage of Betdaq is its bright purple colour scheme. It’s the same sort of colour I imagine Veruca Salt turned after pinching Willy Wonka’s blueberry gum, i.e. quite garish. Look beyond this and you find a simple to use site, with easy to use navigation to find the bets you are interested in. There aren’t any other notable features to speak of at Betdaq. It really is log in, make your bet, put the kettle on and wait for the result. Bet in-running is allowed on certain sports, with markets updated every few seconds.

Betdaq doesn’t offer as many betting markets as its main competitor Betfair, therefore it is worth checking your bet exists before you make a deposit. This will only affect a small percentage of the betting market as the selection of bets is still good.

Promos/Odds - 6/10

There are regular promotions held at Betdaq, but most are geared towards other parts of the site like the games site. Betdaq also offer new players 2.5% commission on bets. Players will have a 2.5% commission rate applied to any bets placed between October 1st 2011 and December 31st 2011, the Commission offer applies to Betdaq exchange betting only and does not apply to Betdaq multiples.

Transactions - 7/10

Most regular payment methods are available for making deposits, including visa, mastercard, electron, switch and solo. There are also a limited number of money transfer services, such as moneybookers and NETeller. It is simple to add and withdraw funds to your account, using links found on the homepage when you are logged in. It will usually take 24 hours to receive money back to your debit card, if the same as used to deposit. Expect 2-5 days for other money transfer services.

Betdaq have employed the banking services of Allied Irish Bank to handle transactions. They use 128 Bit SSL encryption technology to protect customers personal details registered at the site.

Customer Support - 6.5/10

Overall the customer support at Betdaq is pretty average. If you’re the kind of person that needs to be guided every step of the way then your going run up a pretty hefty phone bill. Email support can take up to 3 hours to get a response, so try and be as detailed as you can with your questions. The responses we received were good, as long as the questions were clear. The help guide is comprehensive, so don’t be afraid to look through this first.
