|Betfair.com, the company that is revolutionising betting, is now offering accounts in 5 new currencies. The Betfair punter can now open an account in one of 9 currencies, more than with any other betting exchange and a figure in line with the major international bookmakers.|
Betfair have added Swedish Kronor, Norwegian Kronor, Danish Kroner, Canadian Dollars and Australian Dollars to their existing Sterling, Euro, US Dollar and HK Dollar capabilities. Betfair’s system allows multi-currency bets to be pooled and matched. The conversion rates are provided by a live FX feed.
Mark Davies, Betfair’s Director of Communications said: “The addition of 5 new currencies reflects Betfair’s international expansion which will see it offering markets on an increasing number of foreign sports. A Betfair punter betting in Swedish Kronor can, for example, be matched with a counterparty betting in Canadian dollars, a sign of the global betting market that Betfair is creating.”
