Things to know before betting online - ITREALMS

Online sports betting is on the increase and it has an added advantage of having your money at your fingertips instead of going to a betting shop.
But before you jump in, take a few minutes to learn what to do and what to avoid:

Online Sports Books Aren't Created Equal

It may be tempting to just sign up at the first online sportsbook you find, but they aren't all the same.

Some are more trusted than others. Some offer better lines than others. You may be able to place bets at some while not being able to access others. You can find an online sportsbook to take your bets from just about anywhere in the world, but not all of them operate in every jurisdiction.


Do some research to find out which sportsbooks are available in your area, how long they've been in business, how their lines compare to other books, and see what bonuses are available.

Understand Lines before Placing Bets

This may seem like a common-sense piece of advice, but always make sure you understand the lines before placing a bet. Not all online sportsbooks display their lines the same way, so it can be confusing until you get used to how each place you make bets does their lines.


Just Because You Can Deposit Doesn't Mean You Can Withdraw

Good sportsbooks make sure winning players have a way to withdraw their winnings as they can also deposit. But they don't spend as much time making sure players can withdraw.

Once you find a few sportsbooks, take a quick look to see what withdrawal options they have. If you don't see a method that works, or if you aren't sure, contact the support department. They can tell you how other players receive cash out requests.


Those Bonuses Aren't Free

Most online sportsbooks offer a bonus to first-time depositors to get them to make a deposit and start betting. You might get a free bet or a match on your deposit. Common deposit bonuses are 50% or 100% of your deposit up to a certain amount.

All bonuses come with certain requirements that must be met before you can take out any money. Most of these requirements revolve around placing a certain amount of wagers. The main thing you need to do is read all the terms and conditions BEFORE making a deposit.


Football Is Soccer in Most of the World

You probably aren't in danger of placing bets on soccer matches when you're trying to bet on American football–the team names won't be familiar. But it's always better to be safe than sorry.

Always check to make sure you're looking at lines for the sport you intend to bet on. If you want to bet on soccer, it might be called football and if you're looking for football, you might need to separate American football from the other games.
