What is Betfair?
Betfair is the world’s largest, and Australia’s only, peer-to-peer wagering platform – an online place for people to bet against each other on events. Betfair Australia is owned by the ASX-listed Crown Resorts Ltd, who are the creators of Crown Casino in Melbourne, and Crown Casino Burswood in Perth. Unlike bookmakers or totes, Betfair is a marketplace where supply meets demand. This means the markets are dynamic, fluid, and efficient, which results in better value for customers with better odds at low margins. Betfair is also different to the rest of the wagering industry as it gains revenue through charging a small commission when a customer wins. So, unlike with the bookies, Betfair customers are not shut off or restricted for winning.
Popular categories for placing bets include Cricket – especially the India vs Australia matches.
