Online Betting at its Prime

When the world went online and effectively created the global online village, the new opportunities and possibilities that were spawned as a result of new entity are seemingly endless. We are able to connect around the globe, and take part of in an infinite number of virtual activities. One of the notable beneficiaries of this global networking has been the betting market.

Finally punters from around the world could not only join like-minded communities in the same pursuit, but even pool together large pots and purses of available winnings. Additionally, the top online sports books have more and more clientele to serve and as such have grown not only to accommodate the market but even shower them all with heaps of opportunity. This includes games, races and sports from around the world that are now available to punters in Australia to peruse, watch, enjoy and most of all win at. The sun never actually sets on available sporting events happening across the world time zones.

Mobile Betting Online

To amplify things, the advent of the mobile market has made taking a flutter even easier. With over 1.75 billion smartphone users around the globe, it’s perhaps the biggest online betting community yet. This bodes well for punters, as having such a huge community means that a wager on a sports team has some potentially enormous pay outs, as well as a much larger variety when it comes to fixed betting options.

Since putting money on various occurrences is something people have always done, it should be no surprise that this has become even more convenient with online capabilities. People are going to want to wager on the outcome of any event that piques their interest; and it could be the Australian Open, the Bledisloe Cup or whether the Democrats in America will win their election. The basic wagering principles, however, are simple and do not really change. There are naturally variances for different betting subjects, but here are a few basic forms of bets that are available for most sports.

Types of Bets

Line bets: This is the most commonly placed form of bet. It is quite simply a bet on the outcome of a specific event. I.e. who will win, or whether it’s a draw (in the case where a draw is possible). The odds and pay-outs of this type of bet changes drastically depending on whether or not there is a favourite in the event.

Future bets: This is a bet for the winner or outcome of an entire tournament or event. For example if someone bets on the winner of the FIFA world cup. The odds for such a bet are usually quite high, as it is usually very difficult to accurately predict the outcome of a massive event such as this.  This means that if you can cleverly select the winner ahead of time, the pay-out can be absolutely massive.

Prop bets: These are all the bets that cannot be placed into a specific category. These are extremely broad and often very tailored to a specific sport. An example might be in cricket, one may be able to bet on how many players go out for a duck, or in horse racing, one may bet on by how many lengths or fathoms the winning horse may win by.

Events are taking place all the time, and there’s always a prime opportunity for a wager. You just need to know the sport, and understand the bets, and this may be the best virtual sports recreation ever.
