Sports Betting

What is sports betting?

In simple terms, betting is when you try to predict the future result or an outcome of a specific event. Such events may be the total goals scored during a football match, results of a tennis game, the winner of a gold tournament or a horse race. Some bookmakers even offer lines on non-sporting events i.e. Who will win Eurovision or “Miss World’ or even the gender of ‘Harry & Megans’ next baby.If you successfully manage to predict the outcome, you win! Nowadays betting on sports - and any other event - is more commonly done through the betting sites (or apps) available on most devices.
