Key strength of Smarkets is a low margin of only 2 %, while Betfair has 5% margin. But the lack of promotion as well as other factors, do not allow this betting exchange to form large customer base. Per contra there are rumors that a few rich investors have desire to invest in the promotion of the brand. So Smarkets holds promise to become Betfair real competitor. The company operates under license from Maltese Gambling Commission. Initially, this betting exchange was focused on political betting and horse racing. Now it also offers wagers on various sports, in particular rugby, volleyball, European soccer, tennis, cricket, boxing, hockey, and basketball.
