There are many parts to the Betfair story; market-changing products, technological innovation, a continual understanding of the potential needs of customers, but overall it is a story of success. In a short space of time, it has grown from an idea to a financially secure organisation making good on global ambitions.
Headquartered in London, England, but with offices all over the world, we’re a truly global business. And, while we offer a range of online betting products from casino games to poker, and mobile apps to interactive racing TV, we couldn’t be further removed from the traditional bookmaker. That’s because the way we do business removes the need for one all together.
We’re talking about the betting exchange. The original innovation behind Betfair, it was the first of many revolutionary ideas – and it’s just one of the reasons that we’re now home to the biggest betting community in the world. With a customer base of over 4 million plus more than 2,000 employees and operations in Australia, the US, Ireland, Romania, the UK, Portugal and Gibraltar as well as Malta, things are only going to get better.
Betfair is one of the world’s largest international online sports betting providers and pioneered the first successful Betting Exchange in 2000. The Betting Exchange, where customers come together in order to bet at odds sought by themselves or offered by other customers, has eliminated the need for a traditional bookmaker. Driven by world-leading technology the company now processes over five million transactions a day from its three million registered customers around the world. In addition to sports betting, Betfair offers a portfolio of innovative products including casino, exchange games, arcade and poker.
That’s especially true in the States, where business is booming. We already run one of the largest interactive wagering companies in the country, TVG, and across all of our products, we process more transactions every day than the New York Stock Exchange. It’s big business – and it’s about to get bigger. Our offices in Denver, Los Angeles, Portland and San Francisco are getting ready to kick it up a notch as we expand TVG and launch the betting exchange Stateside.
