Launched back in 2010, OptionFair is a popular and well-established binary options broker online.
The platform is available in several different languages, including English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Arabian, and Japanese.
A negative aspect of OptionFair is the 200 USD minimum deposit.
The owner of OptionFair also owns the 24Option site. The company is based in the British Virgin Islands, but operates with a license from the Cyprus Securities Exchange Commission (CySEC).
OptionFair runs time-limited bonus campaigns for welcome bonuses, loyalty bonuses, and more. The terms and conditions vary, but you will usually be required to make a first deposit of 250 USD or more to get any welcome bonus.
Campaigns with “risk free” purchases are common. If you lose your money, you get them back from OptionFair – but in the form of bonus money that can’t be withdrawn until certain conditions have been fulfilled.
Sometimes, OptionFair runs extra payout campaigns. Example: Deposit 500 USD and get a 50% deposit bonus + 1% extra payout on all binary options during the campaign.
When there is a queue to the OptionFair support, VIP account holders are helped first, then Platinum account holders, and so on. Standard account holders receive no priority.
If your first deposit to OptionFair is less than 500 USD, you will start out with a standard account.
