Online Sport Betting

Ah, those curious days of old, when a punter would actually have to get up, get dressed, and march all the way down to the track to place a bet. Well, my friends, enough of that nonsense. With the advent of online sport betting, you don’t even have to walk as far as the nearest pub or bookmakers office to do your business. From the peaceful comfort of your own home you can bet to your little heart’s content wearing nothing but… well, wearing whatever you happen to have on at the moment. Don’t share.

Yes, online sport betting, whilst a relatively new development in the world of gambling, has certainly caught on. Just try to Google it and you’ll get more than half a million hits for betting exchanges and specialized sport betting sites, and more options than a punter could get through in a month of Sundays.

That is one drawback to all the online sport betting options presently available. It can be confusing to know where to start. Some advice is to lean towards bookmakers who have been established a long time, perhaps those you have seen on the High Street.

All online betting sites and betting exchanges have to be registered with the UK Gambling Commission to be able to operate in the territory. So always, always ensure that any site you are visiting is verified by the Gambling Commision.


As a result, greater responsibility lies with the punter for self-protection from fraud. Online or off, the same rules do apply, and common sense is needed. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is, and better to stay with one of the bigger, more established names than something that just popped up this past weekend.
