Welcome to our guide to betting sites world wide.
In this article, you will learn how to compare and choose the best betting sites, what banking methods are the safest and what to look for in a gambling website.
Choosing a good betting site
If you’re not familiar with online gambling and betting in particular, it’s hard to know what to look for in a website. Most operators look and feel quite the same, so it’s hard to know which ones are great and which ones you should stay away from.
Below we have made a 5 point list with things to look for in a good betting website:
- Choose sites that are encrypted with SSL (look for the green padlock in the URL/search bar) which indicates that all information between you and the website is safely encrypted.
- All sites should have a license from a regulator (look for this in the footer of the betting site). If not, stay away. Licenses are usually issues by either a local gambling authority (as the UKGC in the United Kingdom) or an off-shore regulator such as the MGA (Malta Gaming Authority) the Curacao eGaming.
- Consider bonuses, but don’t make them a top priority. Sure they are fun to use, but a good betting site can have a smaller welcome offer and a louse site can have a huge one. It does not change the quality of the betting site in question.
- Check if your favorite sport is covered. Perhaps you love to bet on cricket. Then make sure the betting sites you consider offer cricket betting.
- Look at the payment methods offered. If the site does not cover VISA payments and that’s the only payment method you have, then it’s not a good match.
