4.9Rated 4.9 by The Gambling Times

RaceBets is a German site that offers traditional Tote style betting on Horse Racing markets from all over the World.  They do offer "Ante Post" fixed odds on certain races but only the major ones such as "The Grand National", "The Arc De Triomphe", etc etc.  Due to the nature of Tote odds betting the odds fluctuate wildly and there is not always a lot of liquidity so a large bet on a favourite can lead to incredibly poor returns whilst conversely a small bet on an outsider can pay well over the SP.  Payments are very swift and back to Moneybookers within 24hrs as standard.
Bonus: £100 cash 6x wagering - code is "welcome"

4.7Rated 4.7 by The Gambling Times

Partybets is part of the Partypoker group.  They offer a wide range of markets but have quite poor odds on most. There is 24/7 customer support, E-mail response is quick and the telephone support is freephone. They offer a large range of deposit and withdrawal options. Before a withdrawal will be processed it is likely you will receive a phone call from them wanting to verify every detail you told them when signing up. It can take a day or two for them to process withdrawals but once they have, money is received fairly quickly and free of charge. (Also see Gamebookers)

4.6Rated 4.6 by The Gambling Times

Mybet is a European operator who began operating in 2002 and have their headquarters in Malta. Accounts must be operated in Euros. The odds are generally good but there is not an exhaustive range of markets available. It is best to deposit with Moneybookers as card deposits will not go through until scans of ID have been recieved.  Withdrawals are free except via bank transfer to non-euro countries where transfers of up to E250 have a charge of E9,50 plus E3 changed by the bank (E14,50 and E3 for transfers over E250). There are 1-3% fees for depositing via Credit Card, Moneybookers, Neteller and Paysafecard (although the website gives contradictory information on this). Payouts are very quick once ID has been sent. Customer support can be contacted via email, fax, online form and phone (not freephone). UK residents are NOT allowed to wager here and bets will be made void (September 2013).

4.6Rated 4.6 by The Gambling Times

OddsFutures is incredibly complicated even for advanced punters with very little to differentiate it from just trading on Betfair backing high then laying lower as the odds move, it is the same only much simpler at Betfair.  They only accept payments by card and payout by either PayPal or Euro cheques.  They have promised more markets than just horse racing but until that is in place they should be avoided, even when the new markets are in place the Jury is still out as to whether it is a good idea to have an account.

YouWin were previously known as Win United.  They are based in Malta and currently only offer accounts in Euros.  They have a larger than average range of sports to bet on and you receive an e-mail with the result of each bet. E-mail response time is fairly quick; they also have telephone support but it's international rates.
