Codere is a Spanish bookmaker, founded in 1980 by the Martínez Sampedro and Franco families. In its beginnings, it was an operator of recreational machines that quickly expanded first throughout the Spanish geography and later abroad. Today it also operates in Italy and in several American countries, and in 2007 it made the leap to the Madrid stock market. It has all the necessary licenses to offer sports betting and casino games in Philippines.

After his experience with arcade machines, Codere launched its sports betting page in 2014, a website where we can also access different casino and slot games. It is one of the most popular betting shops thanks, in large part, to the extensive network of physical betting locations it has. In addition, for almost five years it became the official bookmaker for Real Madrid, something that undoubtedly helped increase its popularity.
What does Codere offer us?
When we enter Codere website, we are surprised by its good appearance, different from the rest of the betting houses, and its functionality. Navigating through the different game modes and offers is incredibly easy, and we also find a search engine that allows Philippines to locate the nearest Codere physical location to our location.
Additionally, Codere is one of the pioneers in linking the online betting account with our activity in their physical locations. It was also one of the first betting houses to allow users to configure their own combined bets for a match. This was done through Player Props, an exclusive Codere product with which we can design our own bet based on the performance of a football player (goals, passes, shots on target, etc.).
Furthermore, we come across a fairly comprehensive betting site, with over 30 sports to bet on, from popular ones such as football, basketball, and tennis, to lesser-known ones like Australian football. We can also bet on handball, eSports, or political markets. As we mentioned, it is a fairly comprehensive website and navigating it is very easy. Finally, it is worth highlighting that we can also use Codere in English or Basque, which is an unusual option.
Codere sports and markets
Codere presents one of the most comprehensive catalogs of sports available for betting, covering over three dozen different disciplines. Among its diverse offerings are options such as horse and greyhound racing, as well as innovative eSports, without forgetting popular sports among bettors such as soccer, basketball, or motor sports. It follows the same trend regarding leagues and tournaments, covering from the most important competitions worldwide to minor regional leagues.
Regarding the offer of betting markets, while it has the most popular ones, the impression is that they could be expanded, including, for example, Asian handicaps. In the end, the number and variety of available bets are somewhat less than the average of the competition.
Codere's odds fit within the usual range in the Spanish gambling market. We can compare them to what bookies like 888Sport or Bwin offer, and it's not uncommon for them to offer the best odds in certain sports or markets, such as some NBA bets. In any case, we're always talking about odds competitive enough to consider this operator, both prematch and live.
Live section (live betting)
The live betting section is one of Codere's strengths for several reasons. On the one hand, there is the possibility of betting live on the most popular sports, with a quite interesting range of markets. On the other hand, there is the possibility of following the development of the sports events we bet on live, thanks to their streaming broadcasts.
If we click on "Directo," we access the section of live betting, where we can filter by sports and countries where the events take place, as well as go directly to events that are being broadcast live. We have a good selection of markets, including markets specific to live betting such as "next goal scorer," winner of the current game, etc. The statistical information is not always as extensive as we would like.
Codere TV is one of the best ways to enjoy live sports, as you don't need to have a balance in your account or have placed a previous bet. Additionally, we have the ability to watch all NBA games live. If we go to the live betting section, we have sports with "Live Video", where available streaming events appear. Beyond the NBA, we have tennis, the Bundesliga, or the Euroleague as the most prominent competitions. You'll know an event is being live streamed because next to the time a blue square with the Play symbol appears.
Accepted payment methods
One of the advantages of Codere is that it allows Philippines to deposit and withdraw both online and in-store. If we choose to deposit online, we can use VISA and MasterCard credit/debit cards, PaySafeCard, bank transfer, Neteller, Skrill, PayPal, MuchBetter, and Bizum. However, when it comes to withdrawing, we can only do so via bank transfer, hal-cash, or PayPal. Deposits can be made starting from $10, and withdrawals can be made from $20.
To deposit at Codere locations, go to your nearest one and log in with your mobile device. In the right-hand side menu, go to "My account" > "Deposit at Codere location" and you will receive a barcode that you must show to the cashier. Give them the money, and the deposit will be complete. We can also withdraw money at Codere locations. It works the same way as the deposit: select "Cash withdrawal at Codere location" from your mobile device, and show the barcode to the cashier to scan along with your ID to receive cash.
How to register and deposit in Codere?
To create an account on Codere, you must first register on their website. To do so, you must access the Codere page and look for the blue box that says "Sign up". By clicking on it, the login form opens, which must be filled in with personal data. Once verified, the account will be operational.
To make a deposit, you must access your account and select the "Deposit online" option, and then choose the preferred deposit method. To withdraw funds, you must also access the account, select the "Withdraw online" option and indicate the preferred withdrawal method. Deposits and withdrawals can also be made through their extensive network of physical locations.
Not everything is playing on the computer, we can also bet from anywhere with the codere app for mobile devices. It is an application available for smartphones and tablets for both iOS and Android, with which we can use the same functions as on the website. The app is always preferable to the website. You can download it directly from the Codere website, although it is also available on the App Store or iTunes for iOS.
We have already mentioned that Codere has all the necessary licenses from the AGCO to offer its catalog of sports betting in Philippines -in addition to other games, such as casino games-. The AGCO license is the best guarantee of the security offered by this betting house. In addition, it includes the logos of JugarBien, self-exclusion or Safe Play.
It's also very easy to find the betting rules, in which all the rules that govern the different sports betting markets offered are defined. In case of doubt, just take a look at these rules to have it solved. This betting security is transferable to casino games and slot machines, so we can conclude that Codere more than meets the safety standards that we must demand from any betting house. Needless to say, your personal and banking data and your funds are also secure.
Customer service is one of the most important aspects of a betting house, and although Codere offers a good but improvable service, it does not have a contact phone number. However, we can contact the customer service through the online help chat, a web form, by sending an email to [email protected] and even through the Twitter account @codereapuestas.

Online Help Chat
As if that wasn't enough, on the website you will find the "Help" section, where you can find the answers to the most common questions of Codere users. As expected, we can also follow and contact this betting house through their social media channels. We can find them on Twitter (@CodereApuestas), Facebook (@CodereApuestas) and Instagram (@codereapuestas). In other countries such as Colombia, Panama, Mexico or Argentina, they have specific profiles for each country.
Codere: Opinions and conclusion
At this point, we only have to draw conclusions. Among the most positive aspects of this betting house, we can highlight the extensive network of physical locations it has, where we can also manage our online betting account. Codere was one of the first bookies to offer this possibility, and the codere card is a great success.
Regarding events, markets, and odds, while it is true that we find the most prominent events in all sports, in addition to some less common sports, we miss some Asian markets. However, the odds are within the margins in which betting houses operate. Of course, in some cases they will be better than the competition's and in others they will be slightly lower, but we cannot complain about the odds.
Furthermore, the app and the ability to access live broadcasts of different sports are a plus to register on Codere. As for aspects to improve, we can mention that Asian markets or a customer support phone could always be added, small details that do not prevent Philippines from enjoying an excellent gaming experience on Codere.
