For many years Coral was the UK’s third-largest retail bookmaker with over 1,700 high street stores, but a deal with Ladbrokes in 2015 is set to help the company seize an even larger share of the market. As part of the Gala Coral Group, which also includes Gala Bingo, the Coral Interactive division operates its sports betting business from Gibraltar and is concentrated primarily on the UK and Italian markets. The company has been involved in the sports betting industry for almost a century now, having started out as a bookmaker on the greyhound courses of the 1920s under the stewardship of founder Joe Coral.

  • Detailed markets for all the top sports, especially football, and a range of minority sports
  • Track where the money is going and find useful tips and info
  • Listen to live commentary of events with Coral Radio and follow action as it happens with stats and graphics
  • Good offers for signing up and money back on a range of betting scenarios
  • Homepage looks slightly cluttered

Coral’s mobile app strips away some of the extraneous tabs and actually looks slicker than the website. It is easy to navigate whilst on the move and there are some very good functions, with live streaming of horse racing and greyhound races in the UK.

Coral Betting-1 Coral Betting-2


Coral covers everything you would expect from a site of its size, with all the major sports catered for in depth as well as decent markets on a range of minority sports such as ice hockey and speedway. There’s also a special ‘non-sports’ section encompassing anything from the weather to royal baby names.


Coral’s bright colour scheme certainly catches the eye and, given the company’s long standing status in the industry, it is a brand that is instantly recognisable. Once renowned for its 'laddy' appearance, the homepage has been stripped back and is now simple and well designed making it very easy to navigate.

Functionality and Features

The Coral sportsbook has all the standard features and functions you would expect and tonnes more aside. Widgets allow you to track information on where the money is going while an impressive link-up with the Racing Post gives bettors useful tips and information on the racing side of things. Live streaming is available on some sports and the Bet In Play function allows you to follow the action in various sports through live stats and graphics. Coral Radio also pops up in a separate window, giving you the option to listen to live commentary on football, horse racing, cricket and more.


Coral is big on insurance and you can get your money back on a range of betting scenarios for narrow losses. The Coral Offers page is packed with cheeky bonuses and is well worth keeping an eye on when you are making your selections. Always on the lookout for new customers, some of the welcome offers are incredibly generous as they offer massively enhanced odds, for example the chance to get 5/1 on Manchester United winning a corner at any time in their Premier League match against QPR in 2014.


Coral seems to have gone out of its way to make sure it has every corner of the market covered and is up to date with all the latest functions as well as the gimmicks. It is clear that it takes its inspiration from the high street roots and knows its market well. The site may take some time to get to grips with, but you literally couldn’t ask for more.

   What you expect

The Coral site is exactly what you would expect from one of the biggest names in the industry. My main area is horse racing and the Blue Tick races are a great promotion. I've never had any problems with the Coral site so couldn't put anybody off.

   1980s slots

Poor quality slots, whatever amount you bet you constantly get a win LESS than your initial cost for the spin. 888 and other sites are a million times better than this site in my opinion. Need to improve your game Coral, and give your customers a CHANCE TO WIN
