The online gambling world is filled with predators that are waiting to yank your hard earned money right out of your pockets. Even in today聮s Internet and its higher communication level Authentic Detroit Lions Jersey
, there still exist a good number of sports betting outfits that you want to stay away from. Today, we are going to look at ten tips that can help you stay away from danger and bet more safely online.
Tip One: Who Are They?
The first thing you should do before spending even $1 at an online sports book is research. Look for their company information and see where they are located. Do they have a phone number? If not, move along. If they do, give it a call.
Tip Two: Search Engines
Before spending any money, take a moment and visit one or two search engines like Google Authentic Denver Broncos Jersey
, MSN and Yahoo. Type in the name of the site and see what comes up as well as the company name. If you find blogs and forums of people condemning the place, find somewhere else. A good place to start is sportsbookie.
Tip Three: Contact Email
One good move would be to locate their email address on the website, or the contact form, and drop them a quick message. Let me know that you are thinking of signing up and ask them a question or two. See how long it takes them to respond. If you don聮t get any response for some time, leave.
Tip Four: Cash-out Time
Good sports books will process your payment within 24 hours. There聮s no reason or excuse to wait longer. This one is tough to know. Using Tip Two can help your research.
Tip Five: Bonuses
Most online sports books offer some sort of bonus and that聮s great. However Authentic Dallas Cowboys Jersey
, you have to watch out for the places that offer bonuses that seem too good to be true. Read the bonus terms to see what you must do to qualify and withdrawal the bonus. If there聮s no data on the bonuses, the place might be a scam. Check out the blacklisted companies in sportsbookie and avoid those!
Tip Six: Betting Lines
This one is pretty simple. Rogue sports books will sometimes alter their lines to seem really favorable to the general public. Look at the lines from some other sports books and make sure they are somewhat similar. Most sports books will have various lines, but they will all be pretty close in terms of odds offered.
Tip Seven: Deposit Methods
Look for sports books that offer many different options of betting. Stay away from any online gambling source that only takes cash, check, money order and Western Union. Reputable sports books will take deposits from 3rd party financial services like NETeller.
Tip Eight: Deposit Amounts
Walk away from any sports book that asks for a large initial deposit. Good sports books will let you deposit as little as $10. Places asking for huge initial deposits are the ones you need to stay away from.
Tip Nine: Small Deposit Practices
As a general rule Authentic Cleveland Browns Jersey
, you should refrain from depositing a large amount of money into any sports book. Deposit the amount you will bet for a couple days and work with that. Once you feel comfortable with the sports book or if you know they are legitimate, you can deposit as you wish.
Tip Ten: Bonus Checking
If you are working towards a bonus, make sure you check the bonus status (or points) after each bet conclusion. Software is known to fail and make errors. This does not mean the sports book is try to cheat you. I.
