Since its launch in 2000 what exists due to a challenge and concept by Ed Wray and Andrew Black turned out to bloom into a sports betting exchange no one could imagine being without.
The challenge was set out to traditional bookmakers in offering customers an opportunity to bet against each other instead of against the house. It did not end fixed odds bookmakers, although it left a huge area in which Betfair continues to thrive within an every growing industry. Betfair Pty Ltd is regulated and licensed by the Tasmanian Liquor and Gaming Commission, UK Gambling Commission as well as the Malta Gaming Authority.
