Got gubbed after 2 days, after playing small bets on local ice hockey teams... The only positive aspect of this site is the odds, the rest is shit.

Although I have heard horror stories about their fast limitation of players, my experience is pretty different. They let me win more than 8k before they gubbed me. And I didn't bet only on football and big leagues but on handball, ice hockey, horses and basketball. Great odds most of the time and withdrawals to Neteller are unbeliveably fast, literary second or two. Best UK bookie after Bet365.

Good odds a lot of the time but if you place too many bets they will punish you with gubbings and limitations. Don't really do anything to keep their punters interested so I think most will get bored very quickly. Not too bad for US sports if you are into that kind of thing. Not too bad but there is much better out there worthy of your punting.

Until I was gubbed, without any prior warning, this was a good site offering good odds - often one of the best on horse racing. A good range of markets and reasonable customer service.

Not used since opening account 12 months ago. Not received much in the way of special offers, to entice me.

I've used Marathon loads since I signed up recently. Regularly the best odds on a lot of the football and baseball markets I use. Website very dated, but the mobile site is pretty good.

One of my favorite bookies, the odds are some of the best around, good number of markets available. It does need a quick search facility.

They have good odds here, but the volume that you can bet is very low. I heard that they´ll limit your account if you are a long time winner. If you are an average punter, it´s a good place.

Use this site mainly for sports market and prices are really good and competative

Currently one of my most used bookies, I find marathon bet usually do not restrict bets to a large degree and offer some of the best odds around. The only down side is the ease of use of the website is less intuitive compared to some others.

Good odds with a great range of sports. Web site is easy to navigate. Haven't used customer service so can't comment on that.

support is good. I do find the website a bit old fashioned and difficult to find bets at times.Probably as they are our American cousins and some of their terminology is a bit strange to me. Customer support is good

My go to site for Tennis. Nearly always has the best odds on Tennis and those extra fractions are crucial to long term profit. Can't comment on customer support as not had to contact them. Site is easy to use, not as slick as some but perfectly functional.

Excellent for football betting , particularly with overs/unders prices. They cover pretty much every league on the planet and , crucially , they will take a decent bet. You are always shown the maximum stake you can place before you place the bet so you don't have the annoyance of hitting place bet only to be told sorry your maximum stake is £0.83 ! The one issue I have with the football side of the business is if you place a bet on a single you won't then be able to include that selection in a multiple. They are also excellent for US sports with very competitive prices on baseball. The only black mark is horses where stakes are limited . Not , so far , to the extremes of other bookies but still frustrating. If you are a sports bettor I would recommend Marathon

Great odds for football especially. Horse racing odds are ok but I prefer to place most of mine in the evening which makes them pretty redundant. I like that they show you your max stake before you place your bet, rather than having to bounce a bet. Not had to use customer support. I don't like that you can only stake on an outcome once. For example, I bet £5 on horse A to win and have a max stake of £40. If I then want to stick an extra £5 on at same odds I'm not allowed, max stake is £0.

Not bad overall, thought I was going to get restricted at one point but that seems to have gone, but there is an amount in a box at the side of each bet they will except on that bet, but that's usually in my range. Only do BOG on certain races and I don't find out which races they are till I go to bet on the as I use odd checker all the time to place my bets

I'd echo Trevor above (below?). Good range of sports and decent odds (you need to check for a yellow flag on the racecard to see if BOG is available on horse racing, which is probably why oddschecker doesn't show it). It's not the most user friendly site, but it's navigable. I've only been with them a few months but not been restricted yet even though I'm winning there. Never needed customer support (so that's a 5 until I know better)
