what makes betfair unique?

Betfair is a betting exchange. That means that on Betfair, it’s punter versus punter — you’re not taking on the house.

Lay betting is also unique to Betfair. Simply put, when you place a Lay bet you are betting on an outcome NOT to happen.

Don’t think Incentivise will win the Caulfield Cup? Lay him. Only on Betfair.

Betfair is also the home of in-play betting. In-play betting offers punters more opportunities to find value as markets fluctuate when circumstances change throughout a race. For example, if the favourite misses the start, its price will drift, allowing you to trade out of your position or take better odds.

In the 2021 Might And Power Stakes, winner Probabeel traded at a high of $12 in-play, showing the value on offer when betting in-play. Meanwhile, Zaaki traded at a low of $1.26 in-play, allowing punters to lay him at attractive odds in the run.

Because Betfair is an exchange, you can set your own odds. If the current prices on offer don’t appeal to you, enter your own odds and wait for your bet to be matched.
