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.

Fortuna Round 20 AFL Footy Tips

round 20 AFL footy tips

Fortuna improved on her previous week (round 18) footy tips by getting 7 out the 9 right. Her advice on what teams to leave out of my multi-bet led me to another Multi-Bet win! I’m so glad that I’ve decided to switch to multi-bets because I have even more games to watch and enjoy, I’m actually extending my sports betting bankroll by losing less on my losing bets and winning more on my winning ones. The sports betting sites that I’ve used for my multi-bets include…

  1. Bet365 have a unique sliding scale feature for cashing out so you can actually choose how much you want to cash out,
  2. Sportsbet also have a cash out feature but what I love best about them is their Million Dollar Tipping competition. Oh, and I like that you can use ‘touch ID’ to log on when using their app!
  3. William Hill, well their William Hill, one of the most renowned online sports betting site.

But enough of that, it’s time to check Fortuna’s round 20 AFL Footy Tips.

  • Sydney vs Collingwood
  • Essendon vs Adelaide
  • Nth. Melbourne vs St. Kilda
  • Port Adelaide vs GWS Giants
  • Geelong vs Hawthorne
  • Brisbane vs Carlton
  • Richmond vs Gold Coast
  • Western Bulldogs vs Melbourne
  • Fremantle vs West Coast

Fortuna says the only game to be wary of this week is the Brisbane Carlton one. You may want to keep that in mind when working out your multi-bet.

William Hill



This weeks multibet was a tossup between Bet365 and William Hill. William Hill won out this week because their odds were slightly better. If you’re wondering how to work out the combined odds this post will show you how it’s done.

You can see my William Hill Multi-Bet by clicking here. As is the norm these day’s I’ve also placed a $1 multi-bet with Sportsbet after entering my tips on their Million Dollar Tipping competition. Who knows, maybe this is the week I win the $10,000 that’s up for grabs. 😎

Here’s hoping your round 20 AFL footy tips turn out to be good ones.

Most Popular Online Sports Betting Sites

I used to promote William Hill and Sportsbet but no more. Those links will explain why. Until I find another two sports betting sites to join I’ll continue to promote Ladbrokes: As you know, I love online sports betting websites with history and Ladbrokes certainly fit the bill. They’ve been around since 1886. Why not check out their Sports Betting section! Read my Ladbrokes Australia Review.

Placing Bets Online

Unlike other sites that link to sports betting websites with no personal experience, I’ve 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 essential 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 an excellent reason for joining more than one online sports betting site. Naturally, I wanted to be able to write honest reviews for you guys. I now have something to fall back on if one of them ever went offline, which has happened. More importantly though is that I can check to see who has the best odds, before placing a bet.

Another favourite 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 fascinating.

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. These things include 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 putting a wager 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 what’s 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 of 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 your own home.
  • Smartphones Apps make placing sports bets online even more accessible. Using sports betting apps means you can put a stake 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 sites, you can bet on almost anything from darts to the Tour De France.
  • There are heaps of online perks. Believe it or not, you’re essential to the online sports betting sites. They want your business and are willing to give you the best deals to get it. This goes way beyond the offers provided to entice you to join. These specials 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 only one major flaw to online betting. Betting online is so easy it can be an issue for people with a gambling problem. That is why I stress responsible gambling time and time again.
