Online Betting And Why It’s So Popular

There is no doubt about it, online betting is popular and is growing every day as more and more punters join the growing online betting crowd. So what makes online betting so popular? Lets have a look at some of the more popular reasons for the popularity of online betting.

 Top 5 Reasons For Online Betting

  • Ability to shop around for best online betting odds. Online betting not only allows punters to get the best odds available, it also allows them to take advantage of any special deals offered by the online betting sites. That’s one of the reasons why I advocate joining more than one online betting portal. That’s why I’ve joined both bet365 and William Hill and will more likely than not join one or two more.
  • Online sports betting makes placing a bet on any given sport as easy as picking up a laptop or pulling their smartphone out of their pocket or handbag. Gone are the days where you have to leave the comfort of your home to drive down to your nearest brick and mortar betting agency. Think of the savings in petrol and wear and tear to your car, not to mention the time savings. Even if you used to place you bets via phone, there’s no more having to listed to crappy music while you’re put on hold. Also there’s not more having to put up with some snotty person on the other end of the line.
  • Lower Stakes due to online betting. As I haven’t placed a bet before joining the online betting fraternity I have no first hand experience of this. I know that William Hill allows me to place a bet as low as 50 cents and that bet365 allows a wager as low as 25 cents. This alone is a great advocate for responsible gambling. It’s also a great way for the casual punter to enjoy all that online betting allows him without breaking the bank.
  • How often have you wished you could place a bet on a particular sport or race but couldn’t because you were at work, at a function or on a family vacation? Online sports betting means you can place a bet on any sport no matter where you are.
  • Online betting increases the exposure of sports you’re allowed to place a bet on. This is because online betting sportsbooks exposures the online punter for almost all sports no matter where they’re being played in the world. As you know I placed a bet on Germany to beat Argentina just the other day whilst sitting down and writing the post.

As you can see there are a lot of advantages for having an online betting account. If you have any others that you would like to add just leave a comment below.

I’ve put together two online betting collages of screenshots of the two online sports betting sportsbook that I have joined so far.
