How To Choose a Sportsbook - Guide To Online Sports Betting


Online Sports Gambling is a growing business with thousands of new players opening their accounts every day. There are new online sportsbooks and wagering establishments created every calendar day of the month, which is quite confusing for new players. It's hard to decide and choose the best sportsbook out there. Here's my quick guide for an unexperienced sports bettor.

The first thing to keep in mind is to take some time off to do some google research. There are many watchdogs and webmasters who write online sportsbooks reviews and are active in several different sportsbooks forums around the world. If you notice complaints about certain sportsbook being unable to pay in time, beware. If you notice sportsbook to be blacklisted, forget that bookmaker - better safe than sorry.

We also advise you to check the location of the bookmaker. Always try to make sure that the company is legal and licensed under the government which they operate. There are some bookmakers that have limited accessibility and server uptime because of the government restrictions. Do not deposit there - it's annoying!

Okay, you've finally found a bookmaker and deposited few bucks. Now you have to test the customer service. Write them an e-mail and wait for an answer. If they've promised to be available 24/7 but reality is different, forget about them. You may also want to call them. If they don't have a phone number at all (or it's forwarded to cellphone), your landed on lousy sportsbook that can't be trusted.

Trust is the most important aspect in this business. Even if everything seems to be ok, what does your gut say to you? If you're still not sure, maybe you should stick to well-known land-based sportsbooks, to known brands.
