The sports betting revolution

The Internet has revolutionized our way of life in so many aspects. Amazingly this also includes sports betting.

Indeed the Web has enabled sports information including odds to be displayed and transacted in real-time among a large number of bettors. This has provided a much larger pool of liquidity in bets compared to the more traditional compartmented bookmaker market. This is turn has enabled the largest online sports betting company to enlarge and refine their offerings, providing a wide range of sports and events on which to bet at reasonable cost.

Nowadays sports betting is possible and popular on football, baseball, basketball, golf, hockey, tennis, soccer, boxing, mixed martial arts, motor sports, horse racing, rugby, cricket, even darts and snooker.

The biggest markets for sports betting are usually the biggest markets for the sports themselves, because the people who make bets are first of all fans of the sports who are so into the games that they put their money where their mouth is. So in the United States, billions are wagered on football, baseball and basketball events. While in Europe the popular sports are soccer and rugby and this is where the most bets usually take place.

In addition the Internet provides the ability to open accounts, fund them, obtain real time quotes, place bets, withdraw your winnings, even discuss your betting interest with fellow betting aficionados in sports betting forum, etc. All this without picking up the phone and within the comfort of your home thanks to your web connection.

The Internet is reshaping the way sports betting is conducted and national borders are getting erased. But you must be very aware of the laws of the country where you reside before engaging in sports betting.

Each country is different and we cannot give legal advice regarding that matter. The only thing we want to point out is that with offshore sports betting, Governments cannot regulate betting taking place outside their jurisdictions. This is another advantage of the Web, but it must not be abused.

The explosion of online sports betting is great news for all people who like us love to place bets on their favorite events. Remember to do your homework when you choose a sports book to place your bets. We will post in the near future about our recommendations for the safest venues to place your bets. Meanwhile, may luck be with you.
