Since the company’s inception in 2000, Betfair have won a variety of awards for innovation. Betfair developed a product that really changed the face of the betting industry and gave punters the option of playing the role of bookmaker for the very first time. They are now the largest online betting operation in the UK and the largest betting exchange in the world. Other firms have tried to imitate the Betfair business model, but none have been able to do it successfully. The fact that Betfair have now also diversified to also provide their customer base with a fixed odds betting option, makes then one of the most attractive online betting websites.
