After the recent bout of bookie bashing at Let’s Compare where the worst bookmakers of 2014 where revealed, today we are publishing who the members of Smart Betting Club voted the best.

How did they vote for the best bookmaker of 2014?

These are the bookmakers that either offer a high quality of service, welcome winners or simply put forward the best value odds.The results were compiled from both the public and SBC member votes received via a survey carried out in December 2014 – designed to build the ultimate list of the best bookmakers.

So without further ado, here are the results for the best bookmaker category as voted for by punters!

Bet365 – Have A Bang On That!

Clear top of the pile this year and taking the Gold award was Staffordshire-based bookies Bet365 who polled 36.5% of the popular vote.  Visit Bet365.

Next up was last year’s winner – Pinnacle Sports who took Silver with a commendable 23.0% whilst Betfair scooped 19.7% of the vote and the Bronze award. Visit Betfair.

Interestingly – Pinnacle were last year’s winner with 42.7% of the vote, they lost a fair chunk of support in 2014, a decision no doubt influenced by their withdrawal from the UK market back in October this year.

Further down the poll, both relative newcomer Matchbook and old-stager William Hill also polled a creditable share of votes with 7.6% and 7.0% respectively.
