What we do know at this point is that the average online gambling society in the UK is estimated at 2.5 million customers. United Kingdom is home to some of the most famous and reliable betting brands in the world, including William Hill, Ladbrokes, Betfred, Coral and Paddy Power. When looking over the numbers, we can see that people from all over the world prefer the british related sportsbooks. Perhaps the reason is that "british" is a synonym of "safe" and "trustworthy". We need years to realize what will be the impact of Brexit, but in a matter of gambling we don't think that anything is going to change. The Gambling Act 2014 developed by the Gambling Commission requires that all off-shore gambling companies must submit a 15% tax on gross profits. The betting industry in UK employs more than 100 000 people and generates almost a £1 billion in tax revenue. Most popular sports to bet on are Hrose Racing, Greyhounds, Football and Cricket.

The question we begin with is not " which one is the best British bookmaker?" but whether a betting site will deliver a meaningful return on player's expectations. We've created a list of 226 betting sites that accept UK customers but only 20 deserve our attention (see the full list here). The world's most valuable bookmaker is bet365 with 230 million visitors during October, 5% are from United Kingdom. The top 10 include Betfair, Unibet, Skybet and 888sport. We must note the influence of the betting companies with a large local occupancy. So called high street bookmakers have almost 10 000 local shops in UK. Here's an overview of top british bookmakers.
