Corals was established in the UK in 1926 and has now merged with the European company Eurobet to form Coral Eurobet. Gambling Licences are held in the UK, Alderney and Gibraltar.
Coral Eurobet was bought by Gala, a major UK gaming group in 2005 but is now owned by three investment companies: Candover, Cinven and Permira. It is now considered one of Europe’s top betting and gaming companies. Coral/Eurobet has over 1700 betting shops in the UK and over 400 more across Italy. Gala are one of the major bingo and casino operators in the UK.
Eurobet serves clients in over 130 countries, providing online sports betting in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Greek, Russian, Turkish, Bulgarian, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Albanian and Czech.
With a turnover in excess of £1.1 billion per annum and a profit of £261 million Coral/Eurobet are one of the financial giants in on line gaming. Backed with lucrative Casino and Bingo operations its safe to say they will be with us for a long time.
Coral accepts Visa, Delta, Maestro, Switch, Solo and some Electron cards. Coral also accepts Western Union, Bank Transfers, Paypal, Moneybookers and Neteller.
The reliability of the site is excellent. I find it is not as fast as other sites but its manageable. The look of the site is quite different to most sites and most pages seem a little cluttered. It does take a little getting used to. They offer most major sports but again they are not as comprehensive as their major rivals.
Corals have a decent customer service, but this is unavailable between 11pm and 7am GMT which can be a big problem. Almost all major bookmakers have 24 hour customer service so a major negative for Corals here. You can contact them either by phone or by email or you can use the direct messaging system via the Options menu once you've logged on.
