    Do many people on here use the exchanges ? If so which do you use ?

    I have had Betfair and Betdaq accounts for years and mostly used Betfair. However since Paddy Power took them over some of their decisions have been pretty bad. The 20% Premium charges are a joke.

    So this week I have joined Matchbook and Smarkets as well.

    Does anyone have accounts on a few exchanges and if so how do you find them in terms of liquidity and customer service etc against each other ?

    I just use Betfair and Smarkets at the moment. I was hoping Smarkets would get more popular because of the 2% charge instead of Betfair's 5% but the liquidity is very low in the markets I like which is Boxing and MMA. I've not used the others yet but I guess it be the same with either limited market on combat sports and small liquidity. I tried to get round it and use Pinnacle on a VPN but the * wanted evidence that I live in Asia which I obviously don't have so that's no use.

    Matchbook is 0% til the end of the year for new customers. They asked for id. Passport n bank statement before I even joined for some reason. A little irritating but suppose it'd better to get it out of the way before you have money tied up in the accounts. Those aren't sports I bet on but I will keep an eye on the liquidity.
