How To Bet Online On Your Favorite Sport

How To Bet Online On Your Favorite Sport

Jul 20, 2018

The online gambling industry has been growing at a rapid rate over the past 20 or so years. There are many advantages to gambling online compared to doing it in land-based casinos:

  •        Play from the comfort of your home
  •        Available 24/7
  •        Use promotions to help you get started

Like we said above, gambling online often comes with some kind of promotion, one of them being a $100 Cashback bonus that you can claim by playing different slot games from the Virgin Casino.

The main problem for online gamers once they claim one of the bonuses is the withdrawal process. Players want to get the money out right after a small win, or after only a few hands/spins, but are often stuck with the withdrawal requirements.

In most cases, players are obligated to play a certain number of rounds or accumulate enough total bets to withdraw the money. These requirements vary between different casinos, so always be aware of them when you get to a new website.

Sign up to the casino to play other games as well such as:

  •        Atlantic City Blackjack
  •        Single Deck Blackjack
  •        American Roulette
  •        Pai Gow Poker
  •        Craps
  •        Keno

If you want to try a new game, but you don’t have any experience with it and are not willing to gamble with real money straight away, go with the demo version and try out all the in-game features with demo credits.

Live & Mobile Betting

With sports betting, you want to find a bookie that has to offer all kinds of sport events. Some places online have lower football leagues, minor golf tournaments, second and third league races, etc. By being a member of such bookies, you’ll have instant access to all the bets, so you won’t miss them even if the event is just about to start.

Live betting is a great way to catch up with a match, race or a fight that has already started. Keep in mind that the odds in live betting change almost every five to ten seconds, depending on how well the participants are doing.

A very convenient way of placing online bets is to use casino or bookie mobile applications. You can stay logged in 24/7 and get notified if one of your favorite events is about to start. This way, you are online a few “clicks” away from placing the bet.

Knowledge Is The Key

Even though the main purpose of gambling is to have fun and boost the adrenaline during the wheel spin or a football match, understanding the fundamentals or possibly some of the advanced gambling techniques can make the process much more enjoyable.

Slots are sheer fun, but micro-managing the bet size is important. With roulette, you can master some of the most popular strategies such as the Martingale technique and its reverse version or Fibonacci sequence.

If you are a sports fan, you probably have your favorite league, team and player, so knowing as much information about them as possible will make you more confident with your bets.

Gamble to keep yourself entertained or make it a hobby, but never rely on it as your main source of income as there are always chances of losing it all, no matter how much experience or knowledge you have.

Short sports betting guide

Short sports betting guide

May 19, 2017

Online betting sounds simple and one could argue it is but only in terms of the actual betting & cash out procedures. A lot of thought goes into how to make a certain bet, or at least that’s what experienced and successful bettors do. Our aim is to initiate you into the world of online sports betting. After you’re done reading, why don’t you check out this Betfair free bet that potentially increases your winnings?

How it works

There are a few conditions to meet before you can bet online. Typically, you have to be at least 18 years old, but this depends on where you live as in some countries the age restriction is higher (21). You also have to disclose real personal details such as your full name, physical address, email, valid phone number and birthday.

Sites that prevent fraud and money laundering also require proof of identification. At some point, you will also have to give bank details to make an initial deposit but this depends on what payment method you choose.

After you join you have to deposit money in your account. Many betting websites offer free bets to new users after they make a deposit. The minimum sum revolves around $10. Once the deposit is approved, you can make bets.

If you lose, money will be subtracted from your account. If you win, your balance will be adjusted accordingly. Once you reach the minimum withdrawal limit, you can withdraw your funds through whatever service you choose (bitcoin, PayPal, wire transfer etc.), depending on what the website offers. Withdrawals can take as little as 1 day or as much as 2 weeks.

Common terms

Since there always are 2 parties to a sports wager (a bet) and you are one of them, the other is the bookmaker. So, you bet against the bookmaker.

The selection is basically what you’re betting on, for example, you bet that the Chicago Cubs will win.

The stake is the amount of money you risk on a wager. The bookmaker will keep the stakes from losing wagers and returns the ones from winning wagers. There usually is a minimum stake, for example, $1.

All selections have odds that determine the amount of money a bookmaker gives to the bettor if his selection is correct, depending on the stake previously made. As a rule, if the chances to win are low, the odds are high, meaning that if you do win, you’ll win a lot. Also, if one is likely to win, the odds are low. Odds are quite complicated and we won’t explore this now, but it helps to know they’re available in different formats: decimal, money line and fractional.

The payout is how much the bookmaker pays the better if the selection is correct (it includes the initial stake).

What sports can you bet on?

Online betting is possible for a very wide range of sports, including golf. Still, you must know that each sport has its own betting rules and practices and it’s recommended to choose a bookmaker with good odds and promotions for the sport that interests you in particular, be it golf, soccer or something else entirely.

Hideki Matsuyama won the 2017 Phoenix Open

Hideki Matsuyama won the 2017 Phoenix Open

Feb 6, 2017

The Phoenix Open started on February 2 ended on February 5 and the purse was $6,700,000. The event was held at TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course Scottsdale, Arizona, in the United States. The 2017 Phoenix Open drew an estimated 58,654 fans Sunday to shatter the weekly record with 655,434, compared the the last year’s event which drew a total of 618,365.

Pheonix Open had a very good couple of days with Byeong Hun An who shot a 6-under 65 with one stroke to lead the competition Saturday February 4, at Scottsdale, Arizona. Matsuyama took advantage of the An’s back-nine collapse. An had a 73 to finish sixth at 14-under. In the end it was Hideki Matsuyama who won the title, in the playoff – final he played against the United States professional golf player, Webb Simpson.

Hideki Matsuyama won the Phoenix Open for second year in a row. He birdied the par-4 17th to beat Webb Simpson in the playoffs. This victory is his fifth in his last eight worldwide starts. In his career as a professional golf player, he became the first to win a playoff back-to-back years in the same tournament since Ernie Els at the Sony Open in 2003-2004. This year, Matsuyama almost won the event in regulation, leaving his 19-foot birdie putt on the last an inch from the hole. Matsuyama and Simpson matched pars on the first three extra holes and eagled the par-5 third.

Matsuyama, and everyone else didn’t understand how that putt at 18 just stayed out. He didn’t lose confidence though, he did his best and had patience. He said “during the playoff, I did hit some good putts. Just the line wasn’t there, and so, you know, up and down. But I didn’t lose confidence. I just kept grinding and had patience.”

Simpson on the other hand said “I feel like two weeks ago I was pretty lost. I did’t hit it that great the first couple rounds. Paul notices something, so we go work on it. You know, that’s all we do is kind of fine-tune everything. And came out this weekend and I hit it great.”

“I don’t know if I played that well,” Hideki Matsuyama said, “but I won. It’s been a good run. I’m going to ride it as long as I can.”

Watch Matsuyama’s game highlights below.

Byeong Hun An leads Waste Management Phoenix Open

Byeong Hun An leads Waste Management Phoenix Open

Feb 6, 2017

Byeong Hun An is a 25 year old South Korean professional golf player who shot a 6-under 65 with one stroke to lead the competition Saturday February 4, at Scottsdale, Arizona.

This impressive shot adds to his professional performance, making An look forward to win this competition among others. In 2015 he won the European Tour’s flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship. At the age of 17 he he won the US Amateur, being the youngest winner of the event.

“It was crazy. Last couple holes, that many people around the course is insane. Sixteen, obviously, but 17 and 18, when you walk to the green, it was absolutely packed around the green, left and right of the green, everywhere.”

An never finished on lower position than 13 in the Middle East, and he is saying modestly that he doesn’t know why. Could this be luck or his skills? In the Waste Management Phoenix golf competition he doesn’t expect to win. His modesty comes again in the spotlight and he says “My goal will be bogey-free again and just play smart. Hopefully, tomorrow, just keep the same, and then I will be happy. Doesn’t matter if I win or not.” Whatever works.

An had a 16-under 197 total. He birdied five of the first 10 holes. An saved par with a 7-foot put on the 16th and followed with a 7-foot birdie putt on the short par-4 17th. He made another save on 18. An, also known as Ben, said that “The course, I think, just suits my eyes. The hole shaping, and there is not much of a dogleg left or right. You basically hit drivers out there and try to carry all the bunkers”. He opened with consecutive 66, and in the second round, he shared the lead with Brendan Steele. Brendan Steele then dropped into a tie for 7th at 11 under.

Phil Mickelson was six strokes back at 10 under after a 65, but still in the striking distance. He was optimistic and he thought he was in a good spot. “I’m in a spot where nobody’s really looking at me. I’m far enough back, but I am within striking distance.” He won the event in in 1996, 2005 and 2013. The 46-year-old former Arizona State star is performing very well after his two spots hernia surgeries.

John Peterson shot a 63 for the rest of the round, had a double bogey and eight birdies. He said “I got on a little bit of a heater there and really wasn’t in jeopardy of making bogey after that. It was a lot of good ball-striking and I made a couple good putts, too.”

Graham DeLaet had a 65, and Michael Kim a 66. DeLaet said “I’m playing well. I believe in it. But you’ve got to just keep the pedal down out here.”

Hideki Matsuyama who beat Rickie Fowler in a playoff, had a 68 to join John Peterson, Graham DeLaet and Michael Kim at 12 under.

Dubai Desert Classic found its winner: Sergio Garcia

Dubai Desert Classic found its winner: Sergio Garcia

Feb 6, 2017

The Dubai Desert Classic has been part of the European Tour since its inauguration 28 years ago, in 1989, and took place yearly ever since then. It is a tradition in golf community worldwide to celebrate this event. The golf championship takes place in Dubai in January/February each year. Its views from the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club and prizes are astonishing.

Having all these money prizes in mind when talking about golf, they are definitely an inspiration for people who have passion for the golf championships. The satisfaction is even greater for people who like to place their favorite sports bets online like pros. It was definitely a big win for all who had Garcia in their minds for their bets. The odds are great, don’t forget to check them out.

The current champion of the golf tournament is Sergio Garcia, a 37 year old Spanish professional golf player. It’s not his first win on the European Tour. He actually has 12 other European Tour wins. At this moment he ranks number 15 in the world and he is expected to be in the top 10 when the new rankings are made public. This is Garcia’s first victory in Dubai that earned him €410,224. He never actually finish in the top 10 the previous years, and on top of that he missed the cut the last time he played Emirates Golf Club two years ago, in 2015. This championship though, his luck changed and Sergio Garcia became the winner of the game.

In an interview after the game, he modestly says: “Early it was a little bit easier, not a lot of wind. The last probably six holes or so, it started picking up,” said Garcia, whose previous best round in Dubai was a 66. “I got away with a couple of shots here and there, and I chipped and putted nicely. So it added up to a nice round.”

In the championship from Dubai, Sergio Garcia shot a bogey-free 69 to close out a wire-to-wire, a shot that brought him victory. In the final round he imposed himself above Henrik Stenson who lead the competition until then. It was an important and necessary step for Garcia that made him unstoppable. Thanks to his incredible skills he kept Stenson away the entire duration of the match. It was a tough game for every part involved, especially for Sergio Garcia who didn’t play golf since his T-11 finish from January in Singapore. Stenson did make a move with the Nos. 13 and 14 birdies that helped him to finish in the top 10 in the world.

Other reputable golf players like Tyrrell Hatton from England and Lasse Jansen from Denmark, tied for third at 14 under, being five shots behind Sergio Garcia.

The 2016 Dubai Desert Classic was won by the English Danny Willet, in 2015 Rorry Mcllroy from Northern Ireland. 2014 and 2013 were Stephen Gallacher’s from Scotland.
