One thing that bothers a lot of folks out there is their online security. This is especially true when it comes to paying for stuff online. We’ve all heard horror stories where credit cards were hacked causing the loss of thousands of dollars. Worse still when such credit cards are also linked to bank accounts.
There is a way around this though and that is to have a dedicated credit card which you use just for your sports betting. For ages PayPal has been my payment option of choice for almost all online purchases. Unfortunately not everyone uses PayPal and so I had to find another, secure, way to pay for stuff online. Including placing bets on my favourite sports. I looked everywhere and finally settled on NETELLER.
From start to finish my NETELLER experience has been all positive. Usually when you read the hype that companies place online you come to realise that’s all it really is. All bloody hype. Not so with NETELLER. They said that you can use their services on the majority of sites and so far I haven’t joined one that doesn’t use NETELLER. Here is what they have to say about themselves.
Our services are renowned for being very flexible or easy to use, and we have a lot of very satisfied customers.
NETELLER enables its customers to make online payments for both services and products online, send and receive money transfers and pay friends and family.
I can definitely vouch that they’re flexible and I’m definitely a satisfied customer.
I’ve made my share of online payments and I’ve also have received, and continue to receive, online payments as well. I’ve also transferred money to my NETELLER account as well as transferred money from NETELLER to my bank account.
My favourite NETELLER feature by far though is Net+ their virtual prepaid Mastercard and their Net+ Physical Prepaid Mastercard. While both cards can be used to purchase goods and services online only the physical one can be used anywhere that accepts Mastercard. I have to admit that I like having something that I can actually touch in my wallet I actually took a photo of it so I can show you guys. Naturally, for security reasons I blanked out the bits that you shouldn’t see.
With the vitrual card you can actually define how much can be spent on that card. A great feature in case some wanker actually manages to hack into it.
As you can see from the image on the left I placed $500 into my virtual card and still have $67.32 left. I could have placed a lot less into it if I wanted to.
The only problem with the virtual card is you can only use it online. This is why I decided to get the Net+ Physical Prepaid Mastercard. I can use it anywhere including online.
Being a NETELLER member I also get notified of any special offers from members they’re associated with. Sometimes its a really cool sports betting related offer. Other times its to do with online gaming sites.

I don’t usually watch A League soccer but I did watch the Adelaide United vs Melbourne Victory game last Friday Night. This is most unusual for me and the only reason I did watch it is because I placed some bets on the game. You can see how I placed those bets in my Australian A League Betting post.
What can I say, that bet was a total bust! Almost like that game. Shit, the only thing that made that game interesting and worth watching was the fact that I placed those bets on it. If I hadn’t placed those bets I doubt very much that I would have watched the whole thing.
Even so I found Adelaide United efforts most frustrating. Not that I know that much about soccer but I felt that Adelaide United was the better side. They seemed to control the ball better and had more shots at goals than Melbourne Victory did. The fact that they missed it so often I found to be extremely frustrating.
When they did finally score that goal in the dying minutes of the game I thought I had a winning bet for sure. All they had to do was to make sure Melbourne Victory did not score a goal. They’d done that for some 85 or so minutes so I thought they could do it for a few minutes more. Unfortunately it was not to be as Ben Khalfallah scored the equaliser ruining all of Sergio Cirio’s efforts for scoring what could have been the winning goal.
The Guardian had an interesting update of the game. Not too much to say I suppose, especially considering it was such a lack lustre game.
All in all though, boring as the game was, I have to say that Adelaide did very well not to get their arses kicked. Apparently, according to some soccer enthusiasts I spoke to, they expected Melbourne Victory to have a resounding win. If you look at it that way a draw isn’t all that bad. Except for the fact that it cost me a bet that is.
