Blue Square – World Cup Odds
Name of Bookmaker: Blue Square
Website Address: www.bluesquare.com
No introductory offer as such, but there are a couple of internal promotions which are worth noting. The horse racing markets promise that the starting prices will never be under the industry return. This has equated to 42% of winners doing so at better starting prices than the industry standard. The other promotion of note, is the refund of a stake on a bore-draw in a football match. Any 0-0 score line will get you your money back. They will refund all correct score, first goal-scorer, last goal-scorer & score-cast bets that are on any televised Blue Square Premier match. There is £100 limit on this.
Markets on offer:
A UK based bookie, but plenty of international action to get your teeth into. Horse racing and football prevail as the leading markets, but others like cricket, rugby and tennis have plenty of good options. The American sports markets are represented decently.
Current World Cup Bets on Offer:
Odds are pretty much on par with other bookies for the outright winner of the 2010 World Cup. Spain are at 9/2, Brazil at 5/1, Argentina at 6/1 with England coming in at a decent return of 7/1. Some of the more outside bets like host nation South Africa are not at such long odds as other sites have them. There is also the option for some European qualifying group winner action, but most of these are limited odds with a lot of the groups all but settled in terms of winners.
Gaming, Casino, Poker, Blackjack, along with some betting specials give the site good interactive coverage. Odds are presented in the preferred UK manner of fractional odds, but the option is there to switch to either decimal or American. There is a good form and stats pop-up to help guide your selection.
General Site Review:
A UK based bookie website which is practical and clear. The functionality of the site is good, with the home page listing some of the best of the current action from the world of sport. All bets are controlled by the left hand menu, which loads quickly and makes searching for a betting market, relatively hassle free. Practical, clean and efficient, Blue Square may not be matching the popularity of some of the other UK bookies, but there is plenty of positives to take from the website.
