The only real advantage I can see over this place is no premium charge (assuming you're in premium charge territory) and an official app (unless there's something I'm missing here on Betfair). Tend to use the green place though if I'm not on here tbh (2% flat commission).

I have already posted about this on a similar thread troy started on the horse racing forum.

Purple have there own brand of PC but you won't find the details in their terms and conditions

See this thread about it here:

It used to be okay but now something is very wrong with the site.

I find it impossible to logon using Internet Explorer.
Just about do it with Firefox.

Then when I logon. I can't select a race. Keep clicking and nothing happens.

I need to give myself at least 10 minutes to login and select the race. Yet once it's running I can move around it okay.

To be honest, it isn't a patch over Betfair at the present.

That's the purple site.
I just tried back a horse there before I wrote that and gave up.

Haven't had a problem with it on Internet Explorer Dr. Crippen tbh. Can't comment on Firefox though, never used it.

Betdak has become worse place than before from my experience. Year ago, liquidty had been bigger. The Future is for exchanges with low commission - I have no doubt about that. If you have a bet at odd 2.0. You better have this 3 pound in pocket ;)

That's strange.
I just logged on straight away no problem.

Yet I've been having trouble for some time logging on.
Perhaps it's only when they're busy.

Found the problem. It was my Ad Blocker.

Turn that off and it runs okay.

I used it for a while a few years ago but nowadays the liquidity is dire !

They have lots of games and not needed crap there. They treat exchange like Vegas Slots and expect to have customers.
