    I need your opinion for a sports betting website (an online bookmaker). So basically it's a place where you can place bets on different sports events. I need to redesign the website. Which colours should I use in order to increase brand recognition and attract more visitors and make them deposit more money in their online betting accounts? It should be one main color, followed by another one or two secondary colours. Any suggestions?

    you can use this site for colour hex codes https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp and also this one complimentry colours https://www.colorhexa.com/
    Be careful you don't use colours already being used by companies

    Thanks for the links, but what colors do you think that it would be best suited for this niche?

    Use dark green paired with white.

    there are hundreds of betting sites.
    choose anyone which you like most and then copy it entirely.

    Well that's some standard. I've seen it on numerous websites in that niche. Usually colors I've seen are dark green, white, black, orange, yellow and red. That's about it.

    This is a nice combination that looks professional:

    262D38 hex colour dark blue

    407A90 hex colour light blue

    393F45 hex colour dark grey

    EFEFEF hex colour off white

    I mostly use lolcolors.com to find the perfect color combinations. Look through there, you might find something you like. Usually I think primary colors as green, red, blue and orange are leaders. Also, try to read a bit about color psychology in logos and websites.

    I think a combination of red/white/grey works quite well together, I've seen it on a Russian betting site called Leon. Try not to go for any colour scheme that already popularised by someone else within the same market segment that you're targeting.

    In google images type "color pallettes". You will get a lot of combinations over there.

    Edit: as for the color combination copyright debate, have a look into this question.

    I've always been a fan of black and red(or red spectrum like maroon, Burgundy, wine, etc) with silver/grey or gold/beige accents. I think anything that's not an informational website looks great with dark themes too

    Well the core colour and brand name need to harmonise with the ethos of the company.

    At its simplest if it is called bluefox betting, then you are best going for a blue fox.

    No one can really help you with that unless they know the brand name and the core message they wish to resonate.

    But on a personal level i would be a bit concerned if i had trusted my rebranding to someone who does not know that.
