Most Popular Online Sports Betting Sites

My favourite, and very popular, sports betting sites aresafe secure popular online sports betting

  • William Hill: Aussie punters love William Hill which happened to be first online sports betting site I joined. If you haven’t joined yet why not take advantage of their deposit $50 and get $150 in Bonus Bets! Note that exclusions apply? You can read my William Hill review here.
  • Sportsbet: These guys are fast becoming one of my favourite online sports betting sites. One of the reasons for that is because of their MultiBet Cash Out feature. You can read my Sportsbet review here.
  • Ladbrokes: As you know I love online sports betting sites with history and Ladbrokes certainly fit the bill. They’ve been around since 1886. Why not checkout their Sports Betting section! Read my Ladbrokes Australia Review.

Actually Placing Bets Online

Unlike other sites that just link to sports betting sites with no personal experience, I’ve actually joined these sites and use them on a weekly basis to place my online sports bets. You’ll find the proof of these online bets in my posts as I show my readers the ins and outs of online sports betting.

 Picking A Safe Secure Sports Betting Site

Before joining any online sports betting sites I always make sure it fulfils four very important criteria.

  1. It’s been around for several years. If they’ve been able to last for several years then they must be doing something right otherwise they would have folded up.
  2. There wasn’t any negative feedback. The internet being what it is you can always tell when a site is shonky by the amount of negative feedback it’s accumulated.
  3. They were easy to use. The last thing you want to do is to spend ages trying to work out how to use your new online sports betting site.
  4. It has to have a sports betting app that is easy to use. You will come to love placing bets online once you have access to a half decent sports betting app.

The More Sports Betting Sites The Better

I have a very good reason for joining more than one online sports betting site. Naturally I wanted to be able to write honest reviews for you guys. Another good reason was so I had something to fall back on if one of them ever went offline, which actually has happened. More importantly though is that I can check to see who has the best odds before placing a bet.

Another popular sports betting sites that I haven’t joined yet is UniBet!

If you’re interested in earning money by promoting online sports betting sites as an affiliate you will find this post really interesting.

Even more important than that is my post on responsible gambling. As long as you follow those guidelines there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have an enjoyable online betting experience.

Why Popular Online Sports Betting Is Growing

It’s no wonder that the popularity of online sports betting is on the rise. Have you ever wondered why online sports betting is so popular. It’s not all that surprising when you consider all the things you can now do online. Things that make life so much easier. This includes shopping online, buying lottery tickets online, paying your bills online and among many other things, placing bets on your favourite sports online. Let’s look at some of the things that make placing a bet online so popular.

  • No more waiting in queue to place a bet. This would have to be at the top of the list as far as whats driving the popularity of online sports betting.
  • The ability to shop around so you can get the best odds. The better the odds the more you can win. Just one of the reasons why I have joined three of the best online sports betting sites.
  • Speaking about odds, more often than not you will get better odds online so why would you want to place a bet any other way?
  • Placing a bet online is easy. No more phone calls which end up with you being put on hold. No more having to drive to the local TAB. Now you can place your bets online from the comfort of you own home.
  • Smartphones Apps make placing sports bets online even easier. Using sports betting apps means you can place a bet online no matter where you are, as long as you can get an internet connection.
  • Exposure to world sports is another reason for the growing popularity of online sports betting. Once you join one of the reputable online sports betting site you can bet on almost anything from darts to the Tour De France.
  • Heaps Of Online Perks. Believe it or not you’re important to the online sports betting sites. They want your business and they’re willing to give you the best deals to get it. This goes way beyond the offers given to entice you to join. These offers continue to flow because they want to keep your business. Anything from cashback offers on losing bets to significantly better odds on selected events.

There is no way you will get all these benefits from your regular bookie or bricks and mortar betting sites.

As far as I can see there is really only one major flaw to online betting. Because betting online is so easy it can become a problem to those people with a gambling problem. That is why I stress responsible gambling time and time again.


Fantasy Ports Why It’s Growing In Popularity

Fantasy sports started out as an insignificant, fun game played among friends; today this little game has grown into a multi-billion dollar business. People stake hundreds on creating a team that they believe will be the best, hoping that the chosen players would perform well in the actual games. Most people have heard of fantasy football, but very few people know the full range of options. Fantasy sports can be played across the board, from NBA to NASCAR racing.

For those that are new to the game Betting Sites a great place to start, as you can learn the history and current trends of this booming industry. In North America alone, 56 million people have played fantasy sports, the majority of these being men or teenagers.

So how do you play? Fundamentally the idea is to create your very own virtual team using an online selection process. You have access to the players’ real-life statistics which can help you make your selection. By using various sites you can track how your players are doing according to real-life gameplay.

There are many different sites and apps that are available to play, some for money and some just for fun. Many people choose to play in public leagues which are hosted by these websites, while others prefer to only join leagues created by their friends.

Fantasy sports is big business, with the industry bringing in an incredible $1.5 billion a year. The majority of these funds come from advertising on the site as a lot of the fees collected by players go back out as prizes.

This is a great way of attracting new players and is proving to be a very successful and entertaining business.

What do you think of a sports tool of the week post? This is a post where we look at some of the dumb things that sportsmen and women do and then select the one who did the dumbest thing and award them the Sports Tool Of The Week Award.

The problem is that sports ‘tools’ don’t come about that often so it would be a little hard to do a post every week. This means that while the award is called Sports Tool Of The Week, it will encompass a bigger time span.

Sports Tool Of The Week Nominees

sports tool of the weekFor our first nominee we have Karmichael Hunt. Here is a sportsman who should be counting his lucky stars being able to play for the Wallabies, representing Australia. As such you would think he understood the fact that he’s now a role model. Sort of makes you wonder why the hell he would even consider taking drugs.  :pull_hair:

Instead he gets caught with some ‘white powder‘ whilst being searched by police. Not the first time he’s been caught with drugs either. I would have thought he would have learned the error of his ways. What a bloody tool!

Then there’s Harley Bennell who was fined for excessive drinking. Here’s another sportsman who should know better. When will these tool learn that they are always in the public eye and should act accordingly. If they can’t do that then perhaps they should be thinking of another career choice.

I find it particularly interesting that Nick Kyrgios has actually been behaving himself of late. Unfortunately, that can’t be said for another up and coming Aussie tennis player. At least he started as an up and coming Aussie tennis player but now it looks like he’s throwing his tennis career away. I’m talking about Bernard Tomic.

Bernard Tomic is our third sports tool of the week nominee. Fans and tennis greats alike, have called him an arrogant tool. This is because of his sarcastic comments after losing to Italian Lorenzo Sonego, ranked 217. Should have been a fairly easy win for Tomic who was ranked 143.

Oh well, at least he can sit back and count his millions.  :tongue_out:
