Founded in 2004, Matchbook is a well known betting exchange providing bettors in the UK with access to a wide range of worldwide sports, political and current affairs markets. In line with its close competitors including Smarkets, Betfair and Betdaq, Matchbook charges a flat 2% commission on all winnings making it a very competitive offering in the betting exchange world!

With the core betting exchange functionality aside, Matchbook excels in bringing plenty of additional features to the table including the syndicate-based Colossus Jackpots betting service, virtual sports, live casino games and access to regular promotions for active customers.

In this review I am going to look deeper into the Matchbook exchange offering and see how this platform could help you get the most from your betting. Starting off with probably one of the best reasons to join Matchbook first, the sign-up offer, which can see new customers gaining a £10 free bet on Greyhound racing after betting £10 themselves or, alternatively, gaining access to a full 30 days of 0% commission on any winnings gained on the exchange!

Welcome Offer

Matchbook currently have two very generous sign-up offers which allow new customers to take advantage of either £15 in bonuses or enjoy 30 days of 0% commission on any winning bets at the exchange (potentially very valuable for those making bigger bets!)

matchbook welcome offer

Starting off with the bonus offer, click here to create a new account with the code MATCHBOOK15 and make a deposit of at least £10 using a valid debit card.

Next, place a back or a lay bet with a stake of £10 or more on any sport at odds of 1.8+.

As soon as your bet settles, Matchbook will award you with a £10 bonus which you can use on the exchange.

Once you have rolled over your £10 bonus once on sports bets, you will receive a £5 free bet. This will be credited on the Saturday following wagering your bonus. Your £5 free bet can be used on a multiple with two or more selections and which has combined odds of 1.80 or greater.

The second offer of 30 days 0% commission can be obtained by signing up here and entering the code COMMFREE when asked (the 30 days will begin from the date of first registration, so bear this in mind when signing up).

NB - Also be sure to deposit via debit card to be eligible for either of the above offers, whilst Neteller, Skrill and PaySafe are available for deposits, they will exclude you from the welcome offers when initially used for depositing your first money into Matchbook!

You can sign-up to Matchbook and take advantage of either of these special welcome offers by clicking here!

Matchbook Commissions

When using a betting exchange such as Matchbook, instead of a traditional bookie, you will need to pay a small commission on any winning bets. Matchbook currently have a standard commission rate of just 2% across all sports and markets thus putting it in line with both Smarkets, Betdaq and (on the lowest rewards tier) market leaders Betfair!

It is important to understand that losing bets incur no commission charges at Matchbook and that, whilst such a commission might seem like a negative at first, the enhanced odds available on betting exchanges mean you could still (often) end up winning more on an exchange, even after commission has been taken away!

Range of Sports Available at Matchbook

One of the biggest attractions of using a betting exchange, alongside the much higher odds which are usually on offer, is the huge range of sports and selections to bet on.

Matchbook are no exception in this regard and cover a very wide range of sports markets from Premier League and European soccer through to tennis, golf, motorsports and political markets such as the next UK prime minister and the 2024 US president.

Even if your sport of choice is a little further afield, popular worldwide sports including Australian Rules Football, MLB Baseball, NBA Basketball, Gaelic Football, NHL Hockey and NFL American Football among many others are readily available to bet on with Matchbook!

Some of the most popular sports categories and markets include:

Football / Soccer

Football is one of the most popular sports in the UK and a firm favourite when it comes to betting on everything from the winner of a game through to the correct score, both teams to score, over / under 2.5 goals, first goalscorer and plenty of other options in between.

Given this popularity, it is great to see that Matchbook are clearly taking football betting seriously and offering good coverage of many popular leagues including the English Premier League, the English Championship, popular European leagues including the Bundesliga and Italian Serie A as well as worldwide leagues such as the Japanese J league and the COPA America tournament.

Whilst looking at any given football event, we often see many available markets to bet on, these include:

  • 1x2 (match odds)

  • Correct Score

  • Both Teams to Score (BTTS)

  • Double Chance

  • Goals Under / Over (0.5 / 1.5 / 2.5 / 3.5 / 4.5 etc.)

  • Asian Handicap (-2.5 / -2 / -1.5 etc.)

  • 1st Half Asian Handicap

  • Half-Time / Full-Time

  • Half-Time Correct Score

  • First-Half Over / Under

  • Second-Half Over / Under

  • Winner & BTTS

  • Winner and Over / Under

  • Home / Away Win to Nil

  • Double Chance

  • Home / Away Clean Sheet

  • Plus many more…..

Whilst liquidity and market depth on many football markets are usually down slightly on bigger exchanges such as Betfair, Matchbook does feature a very handy “popular markets” section which makes accessing the most popular football markets featuring better liquidity very quick and easy.

matchbook football

In-play football betting is also a great feature within Matchbook with many markets available right up to the very end of any given fixture (and Matchbook don't simply remove the cash-out option to suit themselves, like some traditional bookies might do). As such, anyone taking in-play football betting seriously and potentially wanting to cash-out any bets mid-game should seriously consider Matchbook!

Horse Racing

Next to football, horse racing is another very popular sport in the UK and one in which it is clear Matchbook have worked very hard to deliver first class coverage. This means easy access is provided to all popular UK and Irish horse racing events alongside many other mainstream racing events from around the world, this includes Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA amongst others.

Navigating to the available races for any given day is easy thanks to a well designed and well thought out racing section on the main Matchbook website. Races for the next day are also easy to find by simply changing the date on the main racecard section to “tomorrow” (see below).

matchbook horse racing

As can be seen above, finding races for the next day is very easy at Matchbook, it is also worth noting that Matchbook (like other exchanges) usually have horse races priced up the evening before or earlier making them ideal for placing early bets on horse racing at fixed odds (more traditional bookies might limit you to only SP the evening before if anything at all).


Tennis is another popular sport with many of the world's professional and major tournaments covered at Matchbook. A good range of markets is also available to bet on including:

  • Match Winner

  • Set Winner

  • Set Betting

  • Games Over / Under

  • Correct Score

  • Winner & Over

  • Odd / Even Games

  • Plus others...


Golf is another popular sport which features good coverage by Matchbook, this includes all of the golf majors in addition to coverage from all of the main golf tours including the PGA Tour, the Asian Tour and the European Tour amongst others.

A good range of golf markets are covered including:

  • Winner

  • 1st round leader

  • Top 5 / 10 / 20

  • 1st Round top 5 / 10 / 20

  • Top American / European / GB player

  • Selected players to make the cut

  • And more...


Matchbook provides coverage of mainstream motorsport events including, amongst others, the FIA Formula 1 world championship.

F1 race markets commonly available include:

  • Race winner

  • Qualifying winner

  • Top 3 / 5 / 10 finish

  • Plus some other race related markets...

Unfortunately, Matchbook does fall behind one of their closest competitors, Smarkets, when it comes to F1 betting, especially when looking at the overall drivers championship market which can be seen below:

matchbook motorsports

As can be seen above (mid F1 season), whilst Matchbook does offer a market for the F1 drivers champion there is no liquidity nor any market depth whatsoever currently available to bet against! Comparing this to Smarkets at the same time we see a different picture.

smarkets motorsports

It also needs to be noted that Matchbook, as of time of writing, only offers a market for the F1 drivers championship. Comparing this again to Smarkets and we see additional F1 championship markets including the drivers championship without Hamilton, the constructors championship without Mercedes / Red Bull / Ferrari and well as several supplementary, season-long markets such as the number of driver and team wins for the current season.

smarkets f1

Overall, whilst Matchbook are developing some good markets (especially in football and horse racing), it is clear that their motorsports offering is slightly underwhelming at present!


Political betting has become very popular in recent years thanks to a series of unexpected events including the UK voting for Brexit and Donald Trump becoming the US president amongst many other long shots of late!

Thankfully, Matchbook has managed to provide some good coverage in these political markets and have facilitated betting on some of the most popular political markets including the next US president and recent UK elections results.

matchbook politics

Whilst the range of political markets at Matchbook does cover the mainstream political bets, it should be stated that Smarkets do (again) seem to be ahead of Matchbook when it comes to political betting (as can be seen above, political markets still seem to have low liquidity at Matchbook making Betfair or Smarkets a much better choice in this category right now).

Liquidity at Matchbook

Whenever choosing a betting exchange over a traditional bookie, the issue of liquidity and market depth needs to be considered carefully! 

Liquidity is basically the amount of money in bets which have been matched between those placing back bets and those placing lay bets, a very useful figure which will help betting exchange users determine how easily a bet can be placed and subsequently matched on any given event.

Also important when betting at an exchange is the depth of the money available at the current best odds as well as the spread in those current odds on offer (which is basically how far apart those backing are with those laying selections on any given event). These values will differ between different events from those with a lot of liquidity and market depth, such as mainstream football, through to events with potentially very little liquidity and market depth such as smaller golf tournaments and lower league football.

matchbook liquidity

Starting with a look at the Czech Republic vs England fixture in the Euro 2020 tournament (pictured above, about 8 hours before kick off) we can see that £794,720 of bets have currently been matched on the 1x2 market. Add on to this total liquidity the market depth which sees £23 available for backing England at odds of 1.571 and then a further £174 available at the next odds down of 1.564.

The Czech Republic are clearly outsiders in the above match with £760 available for backing at odds of 8.8 and then £363 available at 8.6, the next odds level down.

NB- Whilst betting exchanges such as Matchbook won't enforce a “max bet” limit like many bookies do, we are still somewhat limited by these amounts of money mentioned above. For example, to get £100 on England above would mean taking some of the money at slightly lower odds (1.564 instead of 1.571 in this case)!

If we are to compare this above market to Betfair, we would see the following:

Liquidity at matchbook

Immediately it becomes clear that Betfair has higher liquidity than Matchbook (with just under £800k matched at Matchbook versus over £1.3M at Betfair) and when looking at England in particular, it is clear there is much more market depth here as well (we have over £16k available to back England at odds of 1.57 versus only £23 at Matchbook at this same time of day).

Comparing the above Czech Republic vs England game at Matchbook to Smarkets (below) and we see more liquidity at Smarkets with £1.1M+ in matched bets versus £794k and much more market depth with over £4000 available to back England at odds of 1.56 versus just £23 at odds of 1.571 at Matchbook.

liquidity at smarkets

NB - it is also worth noting that available odds can sometimes vary between different exchanges (although they usually tend to match each other for the same selections). For example, in the Smarkets screenshot above we can see that the Czech Republic has odds of 9 available at Smarkets (versus only 8.8 at Matchbook) yet the draw is priced at odds of 4 at Matchbook versus only 3.95 at Smarkets!

Finally, comparing this same Czech Republic vs England fixture with Betdaq, we see the following liquidity and market depth as per the screenshot below:

betdaq liquidity

With only £145,701 matched at Betdaq versus £794,720 at Matchbook, it is clear that Matchbook seems much more popular on mainstream football fixtures. Having said this, the available odds and market depth (money available) seem roughly in-line with each other in this particular case.

Unfortunately, as I have attested to earlier on in my review, Matchbook does sometimes seem to struggle with liquidity and market depth on some less popular sporting events, this includes the F1 Drivers championship as can be seen below:

matchbook available liquidity

Despite this lack of support for certain markets being apparent, it is also fair to point out that Matchbook does hold up pretty well when looking at some other smaller, less mainstream events. This is most noticeable with international football, for example, here is the Kobe vs Yokohama FC game at Matchbook approximately 20 hours before kick-off:


Naturally, with this generally being a less popular league for betting on, we see much less liquidity, market depth and a higher odds spread compared with the Euro 2020 game we looked at earlier on.

Comparing this same market to the one at Betfair, we see the following:

betfair exchange

Interestingly there has not only been more money matched at Matchbook in this instance (more liquidity) but also more market depth at all of the given odds currently available for the fixture. Given that Betfair is the market leading exchange, this is a very similar market in terms of liquidity and market depth and helps highlight that Matchbook are building a very good football offering across both mainstream European games and those much further afield as well!

NB When we refer to the odds spread we are looking at the gap between the best price for backing a selection (in blue at Matchbook) with the best price for laying the same selection (in red at Matchbook). The larger the gap between these two prices then, generally speaking the poorer the value on offer usually is, this might also be an indication of a fixture which will be hard to cash-out of later on given such a function requires a good amount of liquidity on either side to work effectively!

Multiples and ACCAs at Matchbook

One area in which it could be argued that all exchanges fall behind the more traditional bookies is when placing multiples, system or accumulator bets! As can be seen below, however, Matchbook does offer exchange based multiples and system bets.

matchbook accumulators


To build a multiple involves adding 2 or more selections to the main betslip as per usual and making sure the “Multiples” tab on the right of the betslip is selected prior to finally placing the bet (this red tab can be seen above and will treat all eligible selections as a single multiple bet once active).

NB - At time of writing multiples can only be made up of back bets only, if laying of multiples is important then check out our review of Smarkets (who do support laying exchange multiples) by clicking here!

Unfortunately, as with other exchanges including Betdaq and Smarkets, Matchbook multiples do have a major limitation in that only one selection per event can be added to the bet (as per the screenshot below, the betslip will warn us if we try and add multiple selections from the same event):

matchbook accas

This does, of course, put it on the back foot versus the modern “bet builder” systems offered by many bookies, systems whereby multiple selections from the same or different events can be built up into virtually any multiple you can think of. If, however, your multiple requirements are a little more down to earth, perhaps picking a series of winning teams from a single day's play, then the Matchbook multiples offering should still suffice very nicely.

At this point, with a valid multiples bet in the betslip and ready to go, we can place the bet in the same way that we would any other multiples bet, simply select the type of multiple required (a straight treble, for example, form the choices below) and then click submit to place the bet:

matchbook multiple

NB - In the image above we see only available multiple types for these selections (Treble, Patent, Trixie and Doubles). Matchbook actually support many other types of multiples bets depending on what is in the betslip at the time, these include:

  • Double / Treble / 4+ leg accumulators

  • Patent

  • Trixie

  • Yankee

  • Lucky 15

  • Lucky 31

  • Super Yankee

  • Heinz

  • Lucky 63

  • Super Heinz

  • Goliath

Before comparing multiples from some other leading exchanges and bookies, there are a few important things to note when placing an accumulator bet at Matchbook:

1) Multiples involve the winnings for each leg being rolled over onto the next leg automatically, if the odds for this second leg have changed since the time the multiple was first placed (upwards or downwards) then the final payout might vary.

2) As was mentioned a little earlier on, we can only have 1x selection per sporting event in our multiples bet, this means if I was to add England to win versus the Czech Republic then I could not also add both teams to score (BTTS) to the multiples selection as well.

3) There is a maximum limit of only 10 selections in a multiples bet at Matchbook.

4) A maximum limit of 3 or 4 selections applies to Patent, Trixie, Lucky 15 and Doubles bets.

5) In the case of non-runners, multiples bets will automatically be reduced with the remaining legs still standing (e.g. a treble will then become a double and so on).

6) Finally, another major drawback with using multiples at Matchbook is that cash-outs are not supported!

Whilst this is looking like a good multiples system on offer from Matchbook so far, we can (and should) compare this to other exchanges and bookies to see how Matchbook fares.

Comparing Matchbook Multiples with Other Exchanges

Starting with the exchange betting leader, Betfair, we see that we must make use of the integrated Betfair Sportsbook product to place multiples bets at Betfair.

betfair acca

As can be seen above, when placing the same accumulator at Betfair (Spain / Germany / Portugal) we are offered odds of 5.32 versus just 5.28 at Matchbook (although, as was mentioned earlier on, Matchbook multiples can have varying payouts versus the odds on offer from a bookie / sportsbook product which will be fixed at time of placing the bet).

betfair multiple

One area in which Betfair does provide some support for exchange based multiples is in certain markets where they offer pre-made multiples which are listed on the exchange (for example, above is a collection of 4 pre-made multiples for a specified day of the Euro 2020 tournament). Whilst this clearly has much less flexibility than the Matchbook multiples offering, it does at least let exchanges users have some multiples exposure whilst using the Betfair exchange (as well as the ability to lay any of these pre-made accumulators).

Moving on to one of Matchbook’s main competitors, Smarkets, we can see the same accumulator as below:

smarkets multiple

With odds of 5.6 versus 5.28 at Matchbook, Smarkets appear to offer much more value on the surface when it comes to this particular multiple. 

Also important to note is that Smarkets also allow exchange users to both back and lay multiples whereas with Matchbook we can only place back bets at this time. Both exchanges do, however, suffer many of the same limitations versus a traditional bookie with only a single selection per event and a maximum of 10 selections per multiple allowed.

Finally, when comparing the same multiple at Betdaq, we see the following offering for the Portugal / Germany / Spain accumulator:

betdaq multiple

At odds of just 4.96, a noticeably lower figure than at any of the other exchanges including Matchbook, Betdaq appears to be poor value in comparison (although, like Matchbook, this is only a current estimate and the final payout could be higher or lower if any odds change between legs).

When comparing Betdaq to Matchbook we still see many of the same accumulator limitations including no ability to lay multiples and a maximum limit of only one selection allowed per event amongst other things.

Comparing Matchbook Multiples to Bookies

Whilst having the option to make multiples and system bets at an exchange is undoubtedly very handy, here I am going to look at how this offering, specifically at Matchbook, compares to that of a traditional bookie.

Just as a quick reminder, here is our Spain / Germany / Portugal accumulator with odds of 5.28 at Matchbook:

matchbook accumulators

Looking at this same accumulator bet at one of the leading UK bookmakers, Coral, we see that the odds are (predictably) lower than they are at Matchbook at just 5.04 overall:


Of course, the big advantage to a multiples service like that offered by Coral, is that the odds are fixed at the point of placing the bet (we know exactly what we might be winning) and a cash out feature will also be available for the most part whilst the bet is still active (but be aware that bookies always maintain the right to remove such cash-out functionality at their own discretion).

Comparing things to one of the leading online bookmakers, Bet365, we now see the following odds for this same accumulator:

bet365 multiple

Noticeably better odds than Coral in this instance and not far behind the Matchbook offering itself! Bet365 does offer a cash-out button as well so could prove a very close alternative for multiples betting versus Matchbook!

In conclusion, with all of these multiples betting options across the main 4 exchanges plus a leading online and high street bookie considered, it is clear that Matchbook does have a good multiples offering overall!

It would be fair to say that Smarkets, thanks to allowing their customers to also lay exchange based accumulators are slightly further ahead of Matchbook in terms of total functionality offered. Matchbook does, however, seem to offer good multiples odds on the whole and if cashing out is not an important consideration then this could be a good multiples betting platform!

Live Streaming and Match Stats

Unfortunately, as of writing this review, Matchbook has very limited live streaming options covering the UK greyhound racing circuit only. Live streaming is currently available for the following greyhound tracks:

  • Central Park

  • Crayford

  • Doncaster

  • Harlow

  • Henlow

  • Hove

  • Monmore

  • Romford

To be eligible for streaming any race live, a £2 / €2 / $2 bet must have been placed on the selected event (this can be either a back or lay bet).

Whilst this limited streaming set-up doesn't necessarily distract from the great odds or the quality of the service on offer from Matchbook, it does mean that if you usually rely on your bookie for watching the events you bet on (such as European football for example) then this exchange might not be ideal for you (Betfair, on the other hand, have extensive live event streaming coverage which might make it a better choice of exchange in such cases).

One area which does help make up for the limited live streaming functionality is the live stats box available on most football games covered by Matchbook.

matchbook live streaming

As can be seen above, these boxes provide live stats for the game in question and as well as live updates as to what is happening on the pitch (attacks, corners, saves etc.). Whilst not quite a substitute for live streaming in itself, these live stats can be very useful for those wanting to bet live as well as a great accompaniment when watching a live game via other means!

Colossus Jackpots at Matchbook

Colossus Jackpots is a pools based (tote) betting service which is integrated directly into the main Matchbook website itself.

matchbook colossus

Offering either solo based play or the ability to work in teams (syndicates), players can play one of the following four pools-based games from as little as just 20p per line:

Football Pick 4 (Correct Scores):

This game (shown in the screenshot above) involves picking the correct score for 4 pre-chosen football games, should all four of your selections in any given line win then you will be awarded a share of the jackpot!

Football Pick 8 (Match Predictor):

The Pick 8 game involves picking the correct outcome for 8 individual selections within a given football match. This group of selection can include the correct score, a penalty to be taken, a player to be sent off plus several other options like those seen below:

matchbook pick 8

Racing Pick 4 / 6 (Wins):

The Racing Wins jackpot involves picking 4 or 6 winning horses from a selection of pre-selected horse races. Similar to the football based games these can be played from just 20p per line and offer a share of the pool for correctly selecting 4 or 6 winning horses:

matchbook place 6

Racing Pick 4 / 6 (Places):

Similar to the above, the Racing Places jackpot is awarded for selecting 4 or 6 placed horses from a series of preselected races.

Overall, Colossus Jackpots provides a nice addition to the Matchbook offering and at just 20p / line is considerably cheaper than many other providers offering similar tote style games (typically at £1+ per line with many other providers).

The Matchbook Website & Smartphone Apps

A well designed website and app are essential for any bookie or exchange operator and a key part of delivering a great betting experience to their customers!

matchbook website

Thankfully, as can be seen above, Matchbook are very much ahead of the curve in this regard with a very nicely designed and easy to use website supported by an equally well designed and user friendly smartphone app for iOS and Android:

matchbook app

In our recent review of the Smarkets exchange, I looked at the bold design and user interface choices that have been worked into that particular exchange offering. If your preference is for a Betfair alternative which still retains much of the same look and feel of Betfair, then Matchbook might be a better choice and will, most likely, have a smaller learning curve for many new customers.

All in all, a very nice and very usable design across both the desktop and smartphone apps, a great job from Matchbook here!

Matchbook Casino and Games

In addition to their full exchange betting service, Matchbook also provides a good selection of casino, live casino and slots based games direct from the main Matchbook website and apps:

matchbook casino

Favourite franchises including Monopoly, Deal or No Deal and Megaways are available alongside dozens of slots, video poker, jackpot games and many live casino games including:

  • Live Roulette (European and American)

  • Live Double Ball Roulette

  • Live Blackjack

  • Live Poker (Dealer Poker)

  • Live Baccarat

  • Mega Ball

  • Monopoly Live

  • Dream Catcher

  • Plus many other live games...

Whilst exchange betting is clearly the main focus at Matchbook, it is great to see that an extensive casino offering with many popular and well known games is also within reach should it be required!

Managing Your Betting at Matchbook

Like other big exchanges including Betfair and Smarkets, Matchbook has a very good system for keeping track of both current bets as well as reporting on betting history and any potential profits and losses:

matchbook betting

This reporting section allows easy retrieval and filtering of any bets depending upon their current status (matched, unmatched, settled, multiples) and filtering by individual sports is also offered should you have a lot of bets to manage.

Most bookies do offer some basic reports for seeing betting history, Matchbook have gone much further than most in this regard and built a very good reporting screen which makes it easy to see any active or settled bets and what potential winnings or losses might be expected (both for a certain timeframe or a certain sport). 

Overall a great reporting system and one of the main advantages of using an exchange for anyone who takes the managing of their betting activity seriously.
