Promote Online Sports Betting?

promote online sports bettingI’ve decided to write this post for those of you who are wondering why promote online sports betting, especially because of stories of problem gamblers such as Marcus Bohman. From day one when I published my disclosure page I wanted readers to know that I was hoping to make money from this blog.

Naturally, the only way I could make money would be if people signed up with one of the online sports betting sites I promote, specifically my top three.

  1. William Hill
  2. Sportsbet
  3. Bet365

Right from the beginning I was aware that problem gamblers existed. That why I wrote the responsible gambling post. That’s also why I constantly link to it from within my posts.

Why Promote Online Sports Betting My Reasons

So while the main reason I promote online sports betting is to make money I also want to show people how to gamble responsibly by leading by example. I have set certain rules for myself when it comes to sports betting and I adhere to those rules and sports betting limits. Every time I place an online sports bet I post proof of those bets. That way my readers can see that I am actually sticking to those rules.

Online Sports Betting Is Not Fun

Online sports betting is not growing in popularity because people enjoy betting online. Nope, the reason it’s so popular is because it makes betting on your favourite sports so easily. That’s why I got into it in the first place. If you’re one of my regular readers you’ve probably guessed by now that I love my AFL, especially the Crows. My problem is that I’m not all that interested in the other teams. That’s where my love for online sports betting comes in.

Online Sports Betting Boosts Excitement

Like I said I limit myself to one online sports bet per week. On the rare occasions I have place more than one bet it’s when I have a winning bet. So, what I do is I pick the one game, or several games when placing a multi-bet, that I feel offers the best odds, as well as chance of winning. That small bet increases the excitement of watching those games, because I have a small stake on them.

Punters Beware The Odds Are Against You

Lets face facts, whilst there are some lucky punters out there who do win big, the vast majority of them lose. If this wasn’t the case online sports betting sites would all go broke. They certainly wouldn’t have the capital to spend millions on advertising.

My Advice is don’t get into online sports betting for the purpose of making money. Do what I do and use sports betting to make your sports watching more exciting. Never bet more than you can afford to lose so above all, bet safely. Do this and you will enjoy your online sports betting activity. Develops safe online sports betting habits and stick to them.

William Hill Online Betting Agent Now Live In Australia

You may have noticed in my last post about the Adelaide Crows Nab Challenge Debut that I place a bet with William Hill. I did that because William Hill had the best odds! But how can that be when most people know that William Hill doesn’t operate in Australia? You actually would know the answer to that question if you read my post on the Best Sports Betting Site In Australia!

William Hill Online Betting Replaces Sportingbet

william hill online bettingAs of yesterday William Hill online betting went live. Those of you who are Sportingbet members would have noticed that their Sportingbet smartphone sports betting app had been updated. I took a screenshot of mine. You can see it over there on the left.

Once I logged into my account my current balance, all pending bets and my betting history and banking details were automatically transferred to my brand new William Hill online betting account. It was the easiest and most painless transition I have ever been through. Thank you William Hill for making the transition so easy.

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of being William Hill members there are many reasons for joining. They include the following.

William Hill has been a trusted operator with over 80 years experience in bookmaking. That’s right, 80 years! There’s not to many bookmakers out there that can lay claim to that!

They have moved with the times in order to give their members the best betting experience possible. That includes their website as well as their smartphone betting apps. Its their online expertise which makes William Hill online betting the favourite of so many punters.

William Hill will happily tell you that they offer the best odds on the biggest range of sport and racing events in the world. As I pointed out at the beginning of the post I placed my last bet with them because they offered the best odds.

I can personally vouch for the quality of their sports betting app. You can truly bet any time, anywhere with William Hill’s apps for your smart phone or tablet. I also like the look of their new site which seems to be quicker and hopefully even easier to use. I have to be honest with you, I do the majority of my bets via my app.

I like that William Hill understands the importance of having a secure site. They have been doing it for years and that’s why betting with William Hill is safe and confidential.

Even if you’ve already joined another online betting site that you’re more than happy with there are obvious advantages of joining multiple online bookmakers. They include being able to compare the odds, taking advantage of special offers and having more options to place a bet when your current online bookie has gone offline. This does happen too, believe me, it has happened to me and I was so glad I had another site to fall back on so that I didn’t miss out on placing my bet.

If you have any questions about William Hill online betting, feel free to let me know in the comments below.

Winning Sports Bet

Winning sports bets is probably the main reason why people bet on sports. More and more are doing it online because it’s so easy to do so. That and the fact that it gets rid of those long lines, the sometimes obnoxious sales person and the ease of placing a bet no matter where you are.

In my last bet of the week you’ll remember that I placed a bet on the Crows to beat the Brisbane Lions.

My Winning Sports Bet! Go The Crows

Just in case you missed the game you will notice by my winning sport ticket below that I have another winning sports bet. Yep, the Crows did us proud once again. It’s a shame that they haven’t been able to do that more often this season, but hey, that’s what makes sports betting so interesting. And also what makes those winning sports bets so special. Especially for me because to date my losing sports bets outweigh my winning sports bets.

I’m not worried though for the following three reasons.

  1. I’m new to sports betting so it’s only natural that winning sports bets will be hard to come by in the beginning.
  2. I’m a responsible gambler. That means that I never bet more than I can afford to lose. So when I do lose it doesn’t bother me, especially when the bet itself enhanced the experience I had watching the sport I placed a bet on.
  3. That brings me to my third point. While those winning sports bets are always welcome, my prime motive for online sports betting is to add that extra bit of excitement to love of sports. The best thing is that it doesn’t have to be a huge bet to increase the excitement factor either. Nope, it doesn’t even have to be a winning sports bet. Just the fact that I placed a bet is good enough.

Oh, for those of you who are interested I used Sportingbet to place that bet. It was a snatch. I even made a video, which I included it this post showing how easy it is to place a bet online. 

Have you got any winning sports bet that you’d like to tell us about? If so just leave a comment.
