All About Sportsbetting

Online Sportsbetting is basically the same as land based sportsbetting, but you have more freedom and control over your actions when gambling online. Once you have registered an account with a sportsbetting site, you will be free to place a bet on any market that each event has available. The great thing about online sportsbetting today is that the odds are generally fantastic, because there are so many sites that are in direct competition with one another, they are all try to offer the gambler (you) the best price per event.

You can place a bet on almost any major sporting event today such as American Football, Australian Rules, Athletics, Basketball, Baseball, Bandy, Boxing, Cycling, Cricket, Curling, Darts, Football/Soccer GAA Hurling, GAA Football, Greyhounds, Handball, Hockey, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, Lotteries, Motor Racing, Motor Bikes, Pool, Rugby League/Union, Snooker, Tennis, UFC/MMA, Volleyball, Winter Sports, Water Sports, plus various other events such as Financials, Politics, Lotteries and TV/Special events.

Bets can generally be placed from as little as $/€/£0.10 - $/€/£0.50 and per event, you can normally choose from (in some cases) as many as 100 different bet types, which are otherwise known as markets. For example, in soccer some of the individual markets could include First Goalscorer, Over/Under, Correct Score, Time of First Goal etc. Depending on the sport that you want to place a bet on will determine the types of markets that are actually available for that event.

When you open an account with an online sportsbetting site, you will be given what they call a Free Bet, which is basically a bonus that you will receive when you make your first deposit. This 'Free Bet' is generally worth somewhere between $/€/£10 and $/€/£50 and is a standard sportsbetting welcome promotion. You could even view this free cash as a 'risk-free' bet to begin with. Remember though that with this Free Bet money, you will normally have to place a bet with odds of 2.00 (evens) or greater.

Instead of having to go down to your local bet shop with your betslip to see if you have won or not, any winnings that you have won at the end of an event should appear in your account almost immediately when betting online. Placing a sports bet (or any other bet) online can save a great deal more time than having to go down to a bet shop to place a wager. Online sportsbetting offers gamblers the ultimate betting convenience and registration is usually free and simple at almost every one of today's licensed online sportsbetting sites.
