Matchbook Exchange Review
Matchbook is an online betting exchange designed for professional sports traders looking to maximise their value and for bettors who want the purest online betting experience. Matchbook has been in operation since 2004. In 2011 it was acquired by a group of investors with backgrounds in the UK sports wagering and banking sectors. With new financial backing, Matchbook has been making great strides in the online betting community and is looking to challenge some of the industry norms.
