Betfair is the world’s largest sports trading exchange, controlling an estimated 80%+ of exchange liquidity globally. Betfair initially introduced the Premium Charge for winning customers in 2008, to an array of criticism from their biggest winning customers. In 2011, they went further and increased the charge on profits for these customers, to 60%. In effect, this was targeted at high-end syndicates and traders as well as auto-execution algorithmic players, also known as robotic players.
Due to Betfair’s dominance as the world’s largest betting exchange, traders using any winning strategy to make consistently high profits, have no option but to accept the 60% charge. However, more and more successful football traders are looking for other strategies and platforms away from Betfair.
Asia offers a unique opportunity for winning football / soccer betting strategies, within pre-game or in-play betting. A number of Asian-facing trading platforms exist which offer better prices and liquidity with no premium charge. These can be either 1×2 or Asian Handicap lines and can be manually or electronically traded. However, many of these Asian books rely on agent accounts to gain access and for large volume trading, these bookmakers will use a credit system, rather than a more traditional European approach of cash deposit betting.
Our network includes operators based in London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Manila, who are looking for winning traders in football and basketball, whether you are currently working for a bookmaker, a syndicate or from your home in your part time. These groups can offer high-speed, low latency betting platforms with better liquidity than Betfair across pre-game and in-play markets, 1×2 or Asian Hadicap.
