You probably know Coral for their quirky marketing campaigns and peculiar TV adverts. They’ve gone from the bloke who does a good impression of Stevie G working a burger van to American film star Danny McBridge showing how clueless he is about betting. Coral have grown to be one of the biggest high street presences in betting and having a strong reputation as a bookmaker.
Coral was founded in 1926 and now have almost 1,800 betting shops across the UK and made the headlines at the turn of 2018 for their merger with Ladbrokes. Coral are a bookmaker with close ties to horse racing and have sponsored a number of big races at Cheltenham and other festivals through the years, including the Coral Cup.
Coral’s current new customer offer promises to award users with £20 in free bets when you bet the small amount of just £5. Things you need to consider are that the minimum deposit is £10 and the qualifying odds for your £5 bet must be at least 1.50, but that’s not much to ask. New customers are also entitled to alternatively claim the crazy odds boost that is featured weekly. Recently for example, Liverpool were boosted from odds on to a staggering 28/1 to beat Brighton at home. There’s a range of other offers that existing members can claim such as odds boosts and free bets if your horse is beaten by a length or less. A popular recent feature is the addition of the Coral million, where punters could win £1,000,000 for making 10 correct predictions.
