A Few Important Points from The Coral T&Cs

In this section of our review we take the time to highlight some of the more important points in the Coral terms and conditions document. The full list of T&C’s as it appears on the website is listed below, along with a few extra added comments and critiques. Please feel free to send an email to info@bestbettingsites.uk if you feel as though there’s anything we may have missed, or if you have any questions or queries concerning the T&C’s themselves.

The T&Cs in Full

1. Introduction

2. Parties

3. Opening an Account

3.3 “Customers are only permitted to have one account for use on the Service and these personal details supplied for this account will be confirmed through Verification Checks.”

3.4 “Any other accounts which we have reason to believe are opened or operated by You (in addition to any existing account whether the existing account is active, or frozen or closed for any reason), will be deemed a duplicate account (“Duplicate Account”).”

Comments: This particular T&C is common to near enough every noteworthy bookmaker out there. Due to reasons relating to identity verification, bonus redemption and payments, each member is only allowed to have one active account at a time. Failure to comply with this can result in the duplicate account, as well as your main account being temporarily frozen or even permanently terminated.

4. Account Verification

5. Username, Password & Customer Information

6. Deposits & Withdrawals

6.2 “When using our Telebetting service, it should be noted that there is total minimum call stake of £10 and a minimum card deposit of £5.”

Comments: It is important to make note of this as normally the minimum wager amount with Coral is 10p. The bookmaker has done well by opening up every possible avenue – online, in store and telephone – for punters to lay their stakes. However if you do choose to make use of the telephone service, make sure that it’s for a bet of £10 or over, otherwise you’re better off using the online sportsbook from your mobile or desktop.

6.8 “Deposits made by bank transfer, debit or credit cards will not be charged by us, although Your payment provider may make a charge. However, you should be aware that some credit card companies regard betting transactions as “cash” and may attach a fixed and/or interest charge from the date of payment. Withdrawals to UK debit cards, credit cards and via bank transfer to UK bank accounts will also not be charged.”

Comments: It is very rare that a bookmaker will make you pay for deposits or withdrawals made with a debit or credit card. However as stated above, there are certain banks that will apply charges. To ensure that you don’t accumulate any unwanted banking charges, check with your bank or building society before you begin making transactions with Coral and see if any additional fees are applied. More in-depth info about the banking processes can be found on our bonus review page.
