What is Oddschecker, please?

Report stonethrower November 19, 2012 8:27 AM GMT
Seems fine only thing I had to do was increase the print size
Report Walter Grout November 19, 2012 8:27 AM GMT
Well, the print is noticeably smaller, the default setting is decimal odds, a lot of space on the page is devoted to the various excellent and verifiable, truthful free bet offers, and worst of all the exchange prices appear (when on fractional setting) as such indecipherable figures as 53/9 and 130/19.

It's the oldest story, change for change's sake, pushed through no doubt by various upgrade consultants who have to justify their employment.

Confused why did it need to be changed, at first look it was better the way it was in my opinion. By any chance do the same people who run this place run oddschecker too as they seem to like changing things just for the sake of it

AS has already been said navigation between races is now a joke . Previously you could hover over a  meet at the top of the page and a drop down of every race would appear . Why remove that ? Now you have to faff about clicking on each individual meet and then scrollng down to find your race . walofs Crazy

Another racing site/business, totally dependent on advertising revenues

make it more attractive to punters, more app like. Don't worry about the functionality
bell and whistles, flashy colours, that'll get em punting. Sad

I have emailed them about the annoying yellow bar and i`m still waiting for a reply,i agree with everyone that the site was brilliant before and now it`s just cluttered with useless information,for example the table that shows the bookies free bets and special offers above the odds table is just a complete waste of space,punters who use oddschecker are not interested in opening an account with a bookmaker just for the free bets,also the race times are now about 4 inches away from the odds table !

I do particularly like the feature that they now have, whereby if you hover your cursor over a particular firms name just above the betting guide on the horses, it gives a a brief description of the firm and offers.

I will single out the Hills one:

It says:

A trusted and well established bookmaker ( Even though people are getting their accounts hacked)

All markets covered & BOG on daily horse and greyhound racing ( until they exclude you from having BOG)

and the last line, my favourite...
