Online Best Betting Tips

Aug 17, 2007
Online gambling is one of the fastest growing internet sectors and with annual online gambling revenues estimated at as much as 13billion, it seems that everyone is scrambling to get on the bandwagon. Like most ventures on the Internet some of the new gambling websites have bricks and mortar pedigree, but the rest are pure cyberspace ventures. In the UK operators such as Ladbrokes, William Hill and Coral are building their online presence, and at the same time expanding away from their traditional markets. But Internet enterprises such as Bet 365 are also thriving, and indeed making their own inroads into the retail sector. So, who would you trust to give you the best betting tips and the best returns?

There is no simple answer. It all depends what floats your boat, and what's available. As a rule of thumb though, if you are UK-based, stick to enterprises that are based here in the UK. If you deal with major names you will have more chance of recourse should it all go wrong. Of course, others will say that the odds offered by the major names aren't as generous as those from the less established companies, so risk it once in a while. Indeed, what have you got to lose.. apart from your hard-earned cash?!

But, bear in mind that online gambling is becoming increasingly difficult for US citizens, with the more conservative politicians trying to abolish it altogether. Although most of the sites carry a "health warning", often they do not allow you to set your own weekly financial limits that once exceeded prevent further play on that website. Health warnings on responsible sites highlight the risks of uncontrolled betting. You should stay firmly within your own financial limits and only punt what you can afford to lose. See it as the entertainment it is and not some form of bizarre investment as that way lies ruin! There are very few people, other than the bookmakers themselves, who can consistently profit from betting; the rest of us will lose.

Anyway enough of the health warnings and back to tipping! Before the internet revolution the best betting tips were traditionally given on horses or greyhounds, usually by someone in the know such as a stable boy, or a trainer. Now, best betting tips can come from just about anywhere. With spread betting you can punt on everything from sport to city share prices and reality show results! So, along with the proliferation of different markets comes an abundance of diverse tipsters. Try entering 'tipster' into Google and take a look through the 700,000 results returned!

As always there has never been an easy or guaranteed way to win at gambling and gambling online is the same; anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. So, when looking for the best betting tips on the web always bear one thing in mind - they are just that - tips.. nothing is guaranteed. So, make sure that you keep a firm grasp on reality and your wallet!
