Sports Betting Services

If you’re looking to place a sports bet or two then it doesn’t really matter which website you visit…as long as you’re planning to lose. When you’re losing, just about every sportsbook on the planet will treat you like gold; giving big deposit bonuses, some freebies, and tons of other incentives to stick around. The problem comes in when you actually win a few bets and try to get paid…that’s when the real truth unfolds. At quality online sportsbooks this is not a problem, but it can be a nightmare elsewhere.



Choosing a Quality Sportsbook

Okay, let’s start with the basic stuff first…traits that all quality sportsbooks have in common. First of all, always look to make sure the sports betting establishment is certified by a licensed gaming authority and verified by multiple industry testers. That’s the businesses like the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, IBAS, and TST; if you’re not seeing those types of names then you’re probably at the wrong gambling website.

Next up is the online sportsbook’s actual customer service; you want to find one that is there to answer the telephones 24/7. We’re not talking about some stupid recording either, because if something happens to go wrong you’ll definitely want to be talking to a living, breathing human on the other end. Customer service is also where your loyalty perks and other benefits will come from…, which brings us to our next topic.

Sportsbook Loyalty Benefits

Another thing you always want to look for in an online sports betting service is what kind of perks are available for their players. Big-named brands give all of their customers a chance to earn cash-back bonuses, plenty of freebies, tournament entries, and even 1st class vacations. The less reputable establishments will make similar promises and make it look like they have an actual VIP program, but your job as a consumer is to avoid being fooled.

Speaking of jobs, since you work pretty darn hard for your money, you might as well get a great deposit bonus out of your first transaction with any sportsbook. You should look for one that gives an instant bonus (meaning that you can use it immediately) with semi-low betting requirements before it turns into actual cash that can be withdrawn. Only very few actual sportsbooks do this for their customers; it is one of the biggest traps within the industry.

Variety/Quality of Games

The last thing to remember about the best sports betting services online is that you really won’t have any fun unless you can watch the action live. You’ll also want to watch out for solid betting lines that are better than what you’d find at a local casino, a variety of bets throughout each game, and fast withdrawal options that work for you.
