7 Ways To Avoid Online Sports Betting Scams

Oct 4, 2007
The sports betting industry is currently growing astronomically. If you didn't already know some sportsbooks are not always equal. Sometimes a site maybe there just so they can take your money. So buyer beware that you should know the 7 ways to avoid online sports betting scams first before you place any bets anywhere.

1. What's the location of your sports betting website?

To ensure that you're with a honest and trust worthy sports betting website make sure they are listed on the London Stock Exchange or originate from a countries that allow sports betting such as Antigua and Costa Rica.

2. Does the website have a fast or slow internet connection?

If you're on a website that loads really slowly it means that its under developed and is over loaded. So there is too many users signed up to the website they haven't upgraded their technology to cater for the high amount of users. Find a website that loads quickly and has a lot of members.

3. How do they accept payements?

An popular online sports betting website should have a few payment options. Such as credit cards. If a site does not accept credit cards, then be careful.

4. When did the website original open?

Most popular online sites should be around for a couple of years. If they've been around for a while they will have better facilities, games, and customer support.

5. What is their customer support like?

Do they speak English? How quickly do they response to your enquiries? Do they have a 24/7 support group? These are important factors when selecting a good online sports bookie.

6. What are their wagering rules and do they have any kinds of bonuses and promotional offers?

Good solid sites will have good odds for you to make money and include bonuses and promotional offers all the time. Keeps your coming back!

7. How secure is the company?

A stock exchange listed company is definitely a safe bet. Generally speaking any company on the stock market is there for a reason. They are well run and have money to improve the company when needed.

And that's all there is to selecting a good and safe non-scamming sports betting website. Again I cannot stress more but before you sign up make sure you've followed the tips above and that the company you're about to join has many reviews by independent websites and make sure the reviews are good ones. Happy punting and all the best in your online gambling!
