    Why Does BetDaq Stay In Business??



    Nice platform
    Although they cannot even dent betfair
    Volume piss poor other than some uk racing which is decent at best

    Now they got some spinoff book called 1bet???

    Give it up man..you are not growing at all

    if not for smarkets and betdaq there would not be any competition for betfair and you are saying give it up? betdaq problem is that there play only sharps they need somehow attract mug punters but still it is possible to find some value there.

    UK bookies do not balance their books there

    Why??

    Pools too low meaning pools would be higher

    i am convinced the BETDAQ SLIME arbitrage the real trades onto betfair

    that is how they stay in business

    For major markets, i.e. premier league football and other major leagues, odds @ betdaq definitely beat betfair for regular low-mid volume user.

    As Betfair's EPL markets are generally as close to 100% as they can get I find it hard to figure how Betdaq can be beating them regularly other than on commission?

    I dont know if they have any marketing team but if they have then they are doing terrible job. For example on cheltenham betfair had great promotions and betdaq did not offer anything. Also they could try something like no commision on weekend premier league games or smth like that, would be interesting to see how much volume it would attract and it would be great marketing. But it seems that bedaq does not give sh!t about anything.

    Betdaq are a good out for big markets, small markets are unexisting.
    Matchbook and Smarkets they dont put out the total matched bets which seems very shady.

    In my opinion the problem with Matchbook is that nearly never a (soccer) bet gets matched if you request higher odd than the offered ones (only if there is a strong odds movement in the market). They do have good odds but they are often very similar to Pinnacle's odds so that there is no real advantage of using them. The reason is probably that they seed the markets but apart from that there are not many bettors using them. I can only speak for soccer.

    Actually there is a real advantage if you like trading but to be fair you can do that at betfair...

    commission counts for something. if someone pays around 4% or more on betfair (this is true for most people) and pays only 2.5% on Betdaq, they come off better in long term.

    major markets only though. if you use wider pallet of bets, you must use betfair.

    Matchbook is not a trading site more of an exchange
    Betfair is a trading site and exchange
    Betdaq is a trading site and exchange

    and never will be unless they cease charging commission on every bet rather than net result like Betfair

    I had big hopes with the new matchbook, but they will be just another.

    Matchbook is not geared for a Euro player if you compare it with other Euro sites

    Certainly there's a learning curve involved, particularly on the lay side.

    If they are smart they'd introduce an option to display the odds in the format Euro players are familiar with.

    Betdaq will give 3.0% commission if one requests it, rather than their normal 5%.

    Commission is only paid on winning bets, and first the net profit in that market is calculated, then one pays 3% of net profit.

    More people should try Betdaq.

    hm, todays match manu vs villa is now only 50k+ matched on betdaq. poor. it will go much higher than this in next 2.5 hours.

    you have one tick difference on each 1x2 Lay/Back, with at least 1000 eur to win available. unbeatable odds for average bettor.
