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 was the first online sports betting site I joined.  If you haven’t joined yet why not take advantage of their 700FreeBet_link! 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.
  • Bet365: Is another very popular online sports betting site. They’ve been around for years and are the third online sports betting site in my sports betting arsenal. They’re so good they even have their very own page on this site which has a link to my Bet365 review.

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.

Other popular sports betting sites that I haven’t joined yet include, SkyBetUniBet, and LuxBet!

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 theres no reason why you shouldn’t have an enjoyable online betting experience.

Placing Sports Bets Online Growing In Popularity

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 that 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 amongst 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. Don’t worry, I’ll list them at the end of the post.
  • 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 site you can bet on almost anything from darts to the Tour De France.

 


This post is all about acquiring a million dollar sports betting bankroll. Truth be told the amount of punters out there who’ve managed to put together a million dollars sports betting bankroll are few and far between. If anything, the attempt at winning large amount of cash via betting on sports has put more people in the poor house than anything else. This is the main reason why I always stress responsible gambling.

Winning Your Million Dollar Sports Betting Bankroll

While I always get a kick out of placing a bet I’ve often wondered how much fun it would be if I had a million dollar sports betting bankroll. I know I’m never going to win that sort of cash by betting on sports which is why I occasionally try winning when one of the world lotteries has a huge jackpot. This is why I incorporated the Special Lottery Draws category.

US Powerball $385 Million Jackpot

Million Dollar Sports Betting Bankroll

As of writing this post there are still 3 days left for you to get your hands on your very own US Powerball ticket. You don’t even have to be living in America to purchase a ticket.

Can you imagine what you could do with that sort of cash. Sure, I know the odds of winning are astronomical and yet there are probably million dollar winners being born every day around the world simply because they took a punt and bought a lottery ticket. These are the people who have changed their lives and now thumb their noses at all the people who ridicule those who buy lottery tickets.

Personally I couldn’t give a stuff about these naysayers! I’ve just gone and purchased my US Powerball ticket. Actually, I’ve gone one step further and have also joined a syndicate to increase my chances of getting my hands on some of that cash. You can see proof of that in the image below.

US PowerBall Jackpot Online
I purchased that ticket using theLotter.com which is probably the luckiest online lottery agent around.

I’ve joined multiple online lottery agents for the same reason I’ve joined multiple sports betting sites. To make sure I avail myself of the best promotions and to ensure I don’t miss out on getting a ticket due to the site being down.

Other online lottery sites I’ve joined include;

  1. OZ Lotteries, best prices for those Aussie lottery tickets.
  2. Giantlottos.com
  3. Playhugelottos.com

Just for luck, I’m actually looking and joining one more which looks pretty cool and that one is Jackpot.com.

It doesn’t really matter which one you get your US Powerball ticket from, as long as you buy one so you too have a chance at becoming an instant millionaire.


I’ve always found sports betting news of interest but truly interesting sports betting news is pretty hard to find. For today’s post I’ve managed to source what I believe to be a few interesting sports betting news.

Interesting Sports Betting News – $2.5 Million Winning Bet

Interesting sports betting newsI reckon this first bit of interesting sports betting news is of the utmost importance, especially to new punters! It’s about this bloke that won $2.5 million dollars on a single bet. He did this in 2015 by betting a $100,000 on the Kansas City Royals to win the World Series. He did this by placing the bet at the beginning of the season when the “odds were 30-1 and bet it all the way down to 8-1, as the Royals hadn’t won a World Series in 30 years. Declining opportunities to cash out and make a guaranteed $750,000, Vegas Dave showed his faith in the MLB team by letting the bet ride.”

Apparently ‘Vegas Dave’ has had an up and down gambling career, weathering devastating losses, including a two month stint in Gamblers Anonymous.

I’m stressing this post so that other punters don’t try to duplicate his remarkable win. Unless they have millions that is and can afford to lose a measly $100,000.

Remember not all that long ago when some crazy bloke bet $370,000 on Sydney to beat the Doggies in this years grand final. I sure hope he could afford to lose that bet! :nono:

Remember the golden rule of gambling, if you can’t afford to lose it don’t place the bet!

Banning Sports Betting Ads On TV

I kid you not, England wants to ban sports betting as well as bingo and lottery ads on daytime TV. Why? Because, among other things, “It is feared the rise exposes children and gambling addicts to temptation.” They’re talking about the rise of these ads over the last few years.

Personally, I can’t see how these ads would affect young kids. Also, wouldn’t they be better off banning them in the evening as most kids going to school during the day?

Besides, if you’re a problem gambler I’d say that whether or not they remove these ads isn’t going to do much good.

Sports Betting Losses On The Rise In Australia

Who knows, the Aussie government may go the same route when you consider sports betting losses are on the rise. One expert has “attributed the growth to advertising campaigns and the advent of smart phones.”

I can believe the smart phone angle. I love the ease of placing a bet online using a smartphone. I don’t think that I actually place more bets online because of it.

Online Sports Betting Can Be A Problem

Finally, I feel so strongly about responsible gambling that I want to highlight that for certain people online sports betting can be a problem. If you seem to be exhibiting any of the problem gambling symptoms of this young Aussie then you should consider seeking help.

I hope you found this post interesting. If so, perhaps you could share it around. :cool:
