Thanks to technology it pioneered, Betfair has rapidly become the world’s biggest betting community. In addition to its online betting market, Betfair offers a number of gambling-related services.

Bound by a commitment to innovation and value, in just ten years Betfair has revolutionised the betting industry.
Betfair is the world's largest Internet betting exchange. The company is based in Hammersmith in West London, England. Since Betfair was launched in June 2000 it has become the largest online betting company in the UK and the largest betting exchange in the world. Betfair claim to have over 3 million customers and a turnover in excess of £50 million a week. The company employs about 1200 people in the UK.

A betting exchange allows punters (gamblers) to bet at odds set and requested by other punters rather than by a bookmaker. Members can make both 'back' bets (normal bets on a selection to win) and 'lay' bets (bets on the opposite side of the Back, against the selection), thereby eliminating the traditional bookmaker.

Betfair claims on average 20 percent better odds than those offered by a traditional bookmaker. Betfair charges a commission on all winning bets, which is set at 5 percent of the net winnings for most markets, although according to how much a client wagers on the site, it is possible to reduce the amount of commission paid to as low as 2 percent.

The Betfair interface can be seen as bearing a strong similarity to that of the stock exchange, with the 'back' and 'lay' options comparing to the buying and selling of derivatives. Indeed there are many professionals who play the Betfair market for profit, using purpose-designed software 'robots', in much the same way as a stock market trader.
