Founded in 2000 by the Irish businessman Dermot Desmond, Betdaq started trading in September 2001. Since being launched, Betdaq has become the UK’s second largest online betting exchange company with the help of Ladbrokes, who bought them out in 2013. Being an exchange betting company, Betdaq allows punters to place bets against other punters rather than the bookmakers, which can lead to far better odds. Betdaq entered the betting industry with their customers in mind and in the past have allowed their customer’s complimentary access to Kempton Park Racecourse, when they signed a sponsorship deal with the course.

How to Download the Betdaq App

iOS and Android

Betdaq has made their app available to both iOS and Android users, however, getting hold of your app is different depending on the device you are using. iOS users can simply find their mobile app via the App Store after searching for ‘Betdaq’. Meanwhile, Android users will need to head over to Betdaq’s mobile website and access their download file that way, as Google’s strict restrictions don’t allow a lot of betting apps on their Play Store. Downloading the app for both devices should be a quick process with the download file only small and also free to all.

If you wish to access Betdaq’s services and do not own a device which supports the app, then head over to their mobile web-page where you can enjoy all the same features.

Once on the app, you’ll notice that the layout is very similar to that of their website, which makes it very easy to navigate around. Placed at the top of the page you will see their very helpful search bar which punters can use to search for individual markets and specific events, leagues and teams. With Betdaq’s primary focus on the horse racing crowd, you will be greeted by all current live horse racing on their homepage. For the football fans, they will need to scroll past their extensive selection of horse racing markets before finding live football matches.

Betdaq Player Options

When dealing with any current bookmakers you are likely to find a selection of products they offer other than their standard sportsbook. Below you will find what Betdaq has to offer.


Starting with Betdaq’s sportsbook, is it straightaway easily noticed that they fall short on their selection of sports they offer markets on in comparison to other bookmakers. To be precise, Betdaq has a selection of 21 different sports, which certainly is not a small selection, but could be improved. You will find all the most popular sports on their sportsbook which include horse racing, football, rugby and also a few niche sports like politics, mixed martial arts and GAA. Despite Betdaq’s lack of included sports, they have made sure you have plenty of betting options to consider with the majority surrounding horse racing markets.

Finding your desired market is easy with Betdaq’s mobile app, as punters who know what they fancy placing a wager on can use their search bar to pinpoint individual markets, whereas people who fancy more of a browse can scroll through their selection of sports from the most popular to the least with ease.


Is it a regular occurrence to see sports betting brands releasing a casino app or adding a casino section to their sportsbook and Betdaq is no exception. Betdaq has not released a separate app for its casino games meaning it is found via their sports-betting app. The positives of not having separate apps are that you can find all of their features in one place and do not have to set up different accounts for each service. However, on the downside, things can look a bit crowded and either the casino or sportsbook side of things can take a hit in terms of their attention to detail. Betdaq’s casino is certainly not the finest service they offer with it looking very simple and limited.

Nevertheless, players can enjoy a selection of table games, virtual sports, slots, jackpots and arcade games with Betdaq’s casino. So whether it’s a game of blackjack you want to test your luck on, or virtual horse racing you’ll find it. At the time of writing this, Betdaq was offering their new casino customers a £30 bonus when they bet £10.

Betdaq Promotions

In an attempt to entice more customers to their brand and away from their competitors, you can find a selection of lucrative promotions with Betdaq.

New customers to Betdaq’s sportsbook can receive a £10 free bet when they place a £10 bet on odds of 2.0 or greater. Players must use the promo code ‘BDQ10’. Also for new customers, they can earn up to £1,000 in cashback on their commission over the course of their first month with Betdaq. New customers to Betdaq’s casino can receive a £30 bonus when they bet £10 in their casino and finally all customers can get a free £10 bet if their first virtual bet loses.

Betdaq App Features

You can find numerous features in Betdaq’s app which are aimed at making the experience of their customers easier and more lucrative for them. Below we take a closer look at what they have to offer.

Live Streaming

A fairly new feature to the Betdaq app is the ability to live stream a selection of events, however, their selection is still limited. Currently, customers can watch live horse and greyhound races with their live stream service. Live streaming is a hugely appreciated feature by any punter who likes to place bets on the go. A live stream service is also a key feature to support in-play bets as players can keep up to date with the ongoings of their event and place wagers accordingly from what they have seen with their own eyes.

In-Play Betting

In-play betting can be a heap of fun, as punters place wagers on events that are unfolding as they follow it. Betdaq provides a wide array of different in-play bets for its customers, so whether it’s a football match, darts tournament or the Formula 1 you can find it on Betdaq’s sportsbook. To help punters decide on their in-play bets bookmakers tend to provide a list of statistics or even in-game visuals of the current ongoings in their selected event. Firstly, Betdaq has no in-game visuals, which are becoming a regular occurrence across bookmakers, and to find their provided statistics you have to click on their ‘Stats’ tab which will redirect you to a separate web-page from the app. This is not a lengthy process, but one which could be improved upon by adding their own in-game visuals to make it more customer friendly.


A new tool to Betdaq’s app is their BetFinder, which allows players to apply certain filters to racing events in order to help them find their perfect bet. To use this feature, players must have an account with Betdaq and be signed into it. When using this tool, punters can select from a number of filters which include; course winner, trainer form, horse form and moving down in class. This feature is currently only available to use for horse racing markets.


Placing multiple bets is a great way to earn big from a small wager. Of course your chances of winning fall with each added selection but it can be an incredibly rewarding way of betting. Betdaq has provided their users with a separate ‘multiples’ section where punters can find all the available markets on ongoing events and events that are yet to start. At just a few taps, punters can select their accumulator and find out their odds.

Betdaq Customer Support

Betdaq has provided all the usual ways of getting in contact with their customer service team in case you come across any problems. The suggested way of seeking help is via their live chat service which allows customers to chat with one of Betdaq’s support operatives. This method of support promises the quickest solutions to your problems, however, can only be accessed through their website and not their app.  

Customers can alose get in contact over the telephone from Monday to Sunday between 09:00 and 22:00. Finally, Betdaq has an email helpdesk which is a handy way of solving lengthy problems, but the customer will have to be prepared to wait up to 48 hours for a reply.

Final Words on the Betdaq App

So after reviewing Betdaq’s mobile app, features and other products it is clear to see that they are serious contenders for major bookmakers. Their incredibly low commission rates of 2% make them a threat to all other exchange betting brands and a selection of lucrative promotions for new and existing customers are incredibly enticing. That said, Betdaq could certainly add to their selection of sporting events and work on adding more live streams to their app. Nevertheless, Betdaq should be a sports betting brand you should strongly consider when wanting to take a punt in the world of exchange betting.
