A large number of Golf Betting System readers use Coral as part of their bookmaker portfolio - here's what some of them had to say about Coral with a specific slant on their golf betting odds, promotions and overall offering. For more bookmaker reviews click here.
“Coral is one of the ‘old guard’. And while they may not be as flashy as some of the new kids on the block, their golf prices can sometimes be music to my ears. Do you see what I did there? For instance, ante post-wise, I recently took 200-1 on Thorbjorn Olesen and Joost Luiten, and 150-1 on Mikko Ilonen, for The Open – they are much shorter elsewhere. Also tempted by their 200s on Willet and 150s Lowry – if I had any free funds! Their website is punter friendly too. ” Reviewed by KB, Dec 2014. Rating: 4/5
“In recent times I've found myself using Corals more often than i used to, Usually they open up with a lot of standout prices especially on the Asian Tour I've found. The one problem I have found with Corals though is I can sometimes have a problem logging into my account and depositing money (I'm not sure if its just me or if its happened to others as well) which can sometimes be frustrating but overall I quite like them and have no problem using them.” Reviewed by TB, Dec 2014. Rating: 3/5
“The Good: They price up markets quick enough in the week. The website is easy to navigate and place bets on. The Could do Better: Promotions and extra place specials are pretty ordinary and really need improving. As with other bookmakers the range of markets on the lesser tours is limited to tournament winners. ” Reviewed by PW, Dec 2014. Rating: 3/5
“Started using these a bit more regular now as their prices in the 14/1 to 25/1 are usually a couple of Pts better than others especially near the end of the calendar year. One springs to mind was my man Spieth in Oz . They are generally better than the other so called High Street bookies, although you do get better prices online than if you walked in to a Coral shop.” Reviewed by DP, Dec 2014. Rating: 3/5
