Online Betting Information
Sports betting online is a lot of fun, and it should stay that way. That’s why we’re devoted to providing sports bettors in the UK, Europe, and all of the world with the kind of info that keeps them safe and informed.
If you have a question for our team of experts that hasn’t been touched on below, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Not only will we reply to you personally, we will update this page as well.
I’ve had a personal bookie for years and have never had a problem. Why should I switch to an online sportsbook?
There are a number of reasons why we feel that sports betting online is a better option than dealing with your local bookie. To begin with, the convenience of never having to leave your home is a major plus. Sometimes, being able to lay some action on the game without getting off the couch is just what the doctor ordered.
Privacy is another great reason to pick an online sportsbook over your neighborhood bookie. The truth is, having the option of privacy vs not having that option at all, is priceless.
Another thing your local bookie can’t compete with is the sheer diversity of betting options that online sportsbooks have to offer. 99% of these sites offer a wide variety of gaming options ranging from slots, to blackjack, roulette, crabs and baccarat. And of course, the most popular card game of all, Texas Hold’em Poker, is a mainstay of most internet-based sportsbooks.
Finally, probably the biggest reason why we feel you’re better off wagering online is for safety purposes. The companies we have listed in our Top Sportsbooks section all have stellar track records when it comes to the handling of their players’ money. Integrity is key in a self-regulated industry, and all of our recommended books have strict systems in place to identify problem gamblers, stop accepting their money, and refer them to a variety of help and support groups. And if you’re the kind of person who might try something backhanded or fraudulent, rather than find you and break your knees like your local bookie would, online sportsbooks will just politely lock your account and send you an email about it.
I’ve heard of some of the sportsbook brands on SportsbookReview.net, but does that make them safer to bet with than other books I haven’t heard of?
Not necessarily, but we generally tend to believe that if millions of other people like you are using one service, it can’t be all that bad. Conversely, just because a brand isn’t as well known as another, it doesn’t mean it a bad place to bet.
Generally, as a rule of thumb, the bigger and stronger the brand is, the harder they’ve worked to get there and the more incentive they have to keep everything on the up and up, especially in this self-regulated industry. Some of the top sportsbooks we recommend have been around for nearly two decades… …that’s a long time. The simple fact that these brands are still going strong after all those years is true testament to their well-run enterprises and commitment to quality across all channels, especially customer service.
We have seen exceptionally well-run smaller operations, but the fact remains that smaller operations have less capital to invest in the world class offerings you get from the bigger names. See our list of recommended sportsbooks for more details.
I appreciate your honest and independent reviews, but I like to sample multiple sources before making my pick. Where else can I get unbiased info about online sports betting options?
We couldn’t agree with you more, it’s very important to sample several reliable sources before making your pick. That said, we are very comfortable assuring you that the sportsbooks you will find listed in our top sportsbooks section will echo the recommendations of the most reliable sources online. That said, our advice is to watch out for sites that refer to themselves as “authorities” on the subject.
