    Fairlay launched new site....

    Fairlay Exchange is out of Beta and just today launched there new site...looks like only thing that has changed is redesigned website...Still ZERO commissions, Instant (yes Instant BTC payouts) and best odds for USA players (pinny odds) Ive been on them for while now and never had any issues except for occasional slow grade and that occurs only in horse wagering when there is a LATE withdrawn horse...Check them out! I hope SBR FINALLY gets them a review and rating I say solid A..

    PS they also have a nice T/C Page out licensed in Costa Rica

    New site looks much better than the old one. IMO of course.

    I'm a fan of Fairlay but the new site is painful. Too many things wrong with it to list. They somehow made it about 3x harder for the avg. sportsbook player to use. The old site isn't a walk in the park either, but for those who prefer it, you can use old.fairlay.com.

    As a long time Betfair user you'd think I would be able to work out how to use a new exchange but just spent 5 mins clicking around and seriously feel like a total newb and unsure how to proceed with it.

    Not sure this design is very clever.

    Anyone knows if this bitcoin exchange has the same lines with pinnacle or higher?If am not wrong it has more matches than pinnacle,right?For example matchbook has a small amount of matches,betfair/smarkets have enough.Has the same number matches like betfair/smarkets?

    They clone Pinnacle exactly. They close game about 5-10 min. before start time, however, so no last-minute betting.

    Yeah, it's disappointing. They needed to make it easier for sportsbook users to use, but instead they make it harder. I just don't see how a US facing exchange is going to take off without using a simple interface like Matchbook's.

    Makes absolutely no sense. Thing should be simpler and not harder . Very clunky !!! What were they thinking ?

    I remember when I first tried them and how hesitant and confused I was on the old site at first...but then after getting use to it it's by far the best choice I ever made in btc wagering accounts...I judge that by 3 criteria fast withdrawl speeds, best wagering odds and wagering selection..for USA its only book that gives u all of those...I am still using old.fairlay as I am creature of habit..but I am sur once bugs work out and I get use to new site it will be do exactly what I need it to be and has been a great place to wager and be customer of

    I'm with you that an exchange popular with US players is a good thing. And lots about Fairlay sounds good.

    But this interface stuff is a site killer. People have enough trouble getting started with the Betfair/Matchbook concept and design. This is like shooting themselves in the foot.

    I bet a tech geek programmer in there has too much design control is the root of the issue.

    It took me about 15 seconds to figure out how to make a wager. People always complain about change and new stuff until they get used to it. click on sports, click on the sport you want, click on the wager you want. How is this confusing to people?

    Betting menu odds update quicker when you refresh the page. On the old site there was a big delay between the betting menu and the wager slip (page) similar to what happens at bovada. Also it is a little easier to navigate. I like that you can drill down spread, ou and full time. If they want to attract Americans they really need to model their site after matchbook where you can change your settings to exchange or sportsbook format.

    I dont understand the live betting on this site, if those are offerings I see then they dont match whats actually happening.

    yes I agree it is kind of confusing esp on new site.....try the old.fairlay I like that better..many games you see are closed or fully matched or not active...Like any live platform it is very time sensitive and I recommend live during time outs or quarter/half breaks...also I find it easier to enter the team name in search bar so only those events pop up

    I was on the old site when I made that statement. I saw nothing moving, no numbers moving. The newer site I dont like as much, lol, how hard is it to make a site without screwing it up, even harder to move around in.

    Isn't that the issue with most of these SB websites? Considering they don't have the expense of brick and mortar locations, you would think they'd invest a bit to make sure their website is a well oiled machine.

    It does... but they pay fast. 3 PO's already.... bitcoin address posted on network within 30 seconds... if not sooner. Confirmed within 30 minutes no matter how congested network is.

    They have my vote so far.

    Too be fair I have done hundreds and all have been instant BUT i'll nit pick and say some have been low fee and taken up to 5 hours to confirm....I think most peeps top 2 criteria is fast pay and best odds which makes Fairlay hard to beat esp for US
