Coral Betting

About Coral

With over 1,800 betting shops, there are few names more familiar on the UK High Street than Coral bookmakers. The company can trace its history back to 1926, when Joe Coral (born Joseph Kagarlitsky) started his bookmaking business. There have been a number of mergers down the years, the latest of which between Ladbrokes and Gala Coral Group was completed on 2nd November 2016. That was a merger that created Britain`s biggest bookmaker, with over 3,500 betting shops and 25,000 employees. Coral Eurobet serves clients in over 130 countries and provides online sports betting in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, Swedish, German, Italian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Greek, Russian, Turkish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Albanian and Czech. Coral has had an internet presence since 1999 and they now cover a vast range of sports. There’s an user friendly sports page which features live results as well as all the latest odds, lots of online streaming services across a variety of sports and a news site with all the latest in sport. A company of Coral’s size should always be among the most competitive in terms of betting odds and they won’t let you down on that front. They are also particularly strong when it comes to offering enhanced odds on the big football matches. Coral is licensed by the Gambling Commission of the United Kingdom.
