Betting On The Horses – Get To Know The Basics

Betting on horse racing is as popular as ever before and the rise of new age betting platforms has made it easier and more fun than ever to place a bet on horse racing.

For those new to horse racing, there are infinite ways to backup your opinions of a race in the form of a bet, but ultimately it boils down to a handful of bet types which, when understood, provide the foundation for punters to tackle any race with confidence.

The most popular bet is the simple single, whereby you place a bet on the horse of your choice either “to win” or “each way“. Win bets mean all of your stake go on the horse to win, while with an each way bet half the stake goes on the horse to be placed and half on the horse to win.

Next up in horse-racing betting are doubles, trebles and 4-folds, which can expand into bigger “multiples” if you wish. These are popular bets for those wishing to win big for a small stake. If one horse lets you down, the game is up! But should they all win, you'll be quids in. It is worth noting that each way doubles and trebles are also very popular and actually quite a savvy bet in the shorter price ranges.

“Exotic” bets are hugely exciting and provide added insurance that accumulators do not. A Lucky 15 for example is a four horse bet consisting of singles, doubles, trebles and a 4-fold, amounting to a total of 15 bets.  So if two of your your horses win, you'll get paid out on the singles and doubles to ensure some return on investment. A Lucky 31 is similar but with six horses and another good one for the more adventurous is in the 147 bet, eight horse “Goliath” bet.

Another basic type of racing bet is the humble forecast & tricast, where punters attempt to predict the first two or first three horses to finish a race. These bets too offer high reward for relatively small stakes, but of course they are much trickier to predict!

Lastly and also very popular, particularly on racecourses, is Tote Placepots and Jackpots. Punters are required to pick a horse or a permutation of horses in up to six races on a particular race card, in search of winning a tasty return if all the horses are involved in the finish.

Of course in horse racing there's also a huge variety of special markets and bet type for you to explore, but master these basics first and build your portfolio of markets to get involved in from there.

Get Ready for Premier League Betting

We’re almost there. It’s been a short and painful wait but the new season is about to start soon and, frankly, even a sooner start will be too late for our taste. And who can blame us? With the previous season taking us all for an unexpected ride that ended with Leicester taking the cup home and other teams falling down the table, this season is bound to be even better, especially with all the changes we’ve seen during summer.

The Changes Have Arrived

The number one cause of excitement for everyone this year is Manchester City, who seem to be going for their best year ever, but we’ve also seen some improvements in other teams as well, which give us high hopes of another great season: Manchester United are pulling themselves together again; Chelsea are working on fixing the holes which sunk their chances last year; Arsenal finally started scouting for more strikers; Liverpool are refortifying their starting line-up; and Tottenham are bringing in new players who are set on repeating and even surpassing last year’s success. All this gives us the impression of a great year up ahead, where once again we will see the big teams clash under the leadership of world-class managers, some with a different mentality and others with minor alterations to their battle-tested tactics.
Whatever the season brings, we are definitely going to be watching some great football, although with less surprises than last year, it seems. And like with every season, one of the greatest things about it is earning some cash while watching the game we love the most.

Turning Your Love for the Game into Money

For those of you who’ve never done it so far, betting it’s not that complicated, especially if you know your game well. Betting is all about finding lower odds that are most likely to come true, which is where your expertise comes into play. Each betting provider publishes their odds and keeps them regularly updated as the season unfolds, and whether you’ll make a good winning will depend on how accurate are your predictions for the odds you’ve chosen. And if you don’t feel comfortable or are too inexperienced to make some predictions on your own, you can always find betting tips online and compare them to select the “strongest”, keeping in mind that they can also be wrong.

What the Odds Say

The first thing you might want to take a look at is the Outright Winner odds for the season, which give you a fair estimate of which teams you can expect to be the top contenders. The Outright Winner Odds for 2016/17 are:
Manchester City – 9/4
Manchester United – 7/2
Arsenal – 11/2
Chelsea 5/1
Tottenham – 9/1
Liverpool – 8/1
Leicester City – 29/1
West Ham – 80/1.

The highest contenders for the cup this year are Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal, with City being the favorite among both experts and bookies, following Guardiola’s arrival to the team. Leicester, despite their last year’s success, found themselves on the 7th place of the odds table, which is a large improvement over their last year’s 5000/1 odds that nearly bankrupted bookies. On the other hand, Manchester United now has higher chances of winning the cup again after both Mourinho and Ibrahimovic were signed.

Other Bets

Apart from the outright winner, you can also bet on who will finish in the top 4 and the top 6, who will not enter the top 4, who will finish in the bottom and top half, who will be the top goalscorer, who will end up being relegated, and who will win, lose, or tie each match.
But before you move on to dreaming about big winnings, the first step would be to find a quality bookmaker, one whose odds will be in tune with the winnings you have in mind. Once you find one, you can choose those favorable odds that you are most certain of (or get some help), place the bet, and sit back and enjoy the game, with the occasional glance or two on your ticket.

Betting on Esports – The New Thing?

Until not so long ago hardly anyone believed that video games will be considered sports and soon after they were labelled as Esports, many thought that the name was inappropriate. However, things changed quickly and know a lot more people takes gaming and Esports seriously and Esports tournaments have attracted the attention of mainstream media. Not only that the number of people who are playing Esports professionally is rising, but there’s also a growing interest amongst fans to watch Esports competitions and tournaments. Some Esports events take place in large arenas in front of live audiences and more often than not the venues are sold out and quite full on the day the events are held. Moreover, the prizes for winning certain Esports events often exceed $1 million.

The rising popularity of Esports

Studies conducted last year showed that more than 100 million people watch Esports games and tournaments on a monthly basis. It is predicted that this number will reach 145 million by 2017. Some events, like The International, which is the top Esports competitive event, draw over 8 million people simultaneously which is equal to the number of people who watch the finals of the Stanley Cup.

The number of tournaments also saw a rapid growth. There were only 27 tournaments in total in 2000 and the number pretty much remained the same in the following two years. By 2005 the number exceeded 230 and it nearly reached 2,000 in 2014. About a decade ago, only up to few thousand people watched amateur Esports competitions. But, back in 2013, the Riot Games’ League of Legends championship was seen by 32 million people, most of them via online streaming services. More people viewed the LoL championship than the NBA Finals and World Series in 2014 together.

The prize amounts grew as well and nowadays successful Esports competitors are young millionaires, as opposed to 10 years ago when they were mere amateurs. On the brink of the new century just about half a million dollars of prize money was awarded to players who competed in 27 different tournaments. 15 years later the available funds exceeded $40 and the trend is likely to continue. Not to mention that many Esports players and teams sign multi-million sponsorship deals.

Many Esports-men and women gained prominence and were featured in some of the leading traditional and online media and the US State Department nowadays grants visa to gamers as part of the same programme as players who compete in conventional sports. Top universities give scholarships to professional gamers. Esports competitions are even broadcasted by leading television networks like ESPN.

Esports betting

There’s another feature of Esports which shows their connection to conventional sports. Namely, people nowadays bet on Esports and it is becoming increasingly popular. Bearing in mind that a lot of people know watch Esports and that prizes for the winners are pretty high, it is hardly surprising that there’s a growing number of fans who became Esports punters.

Online sports betting operators were quick to realise the potential of Esports and Esport betting and nowadays there practically isn’t a reliable sports betting operator that doesn’t offer betting on Esports. It is possible to place wager on a large number of games of different Esports competitions, including Dota 2, League of Legends, Counter Strike and StarCraft 2 tournaments, as well as several other games.

Last year it was reported that there is a huge surge in the amounts of money that punters stake on Esports games. In fact, a marketing director of one of the leading online bookmakers stated that Esports competitions are often among the top 10 events in terms of betting turnover. In addition to the increase in the number of total bets, the number of four-digit bets on Esports is also increased.

Sports betting operators hire analysts and experts which help them provide more realistic and more competitive quotes on Esports. Punters are quite happy about the fact that are more than few operators which offer Esports betting as more competition almost certainly drives the odds up and allows punters to ‘shop’ for better odds online.

Euro 2016 Semi Finals: What to Expect

Prepping up for the much awaited Euro 2016 Finale? The promising tournament has offered a lot of drama and intrigue so far right from the first kick-off and has managed to set the bar pretty high. We witnessed surprising performance from many longshots, debutants making it to the quarter final, underdog players thriving and epic late goals ensuring you stay tuned in for the match. After all that thrill and excitement the semi-finals are up for grabs. France, Germany, Portugal and Wales are all set for the battle and all the football enthusiasts, wagers and bookies tuning-up for some last minute action. Amidst all this rage, we bring you something to calm your nerves down. Here’s what you can expect from the Euro 2016 Semi-Finals.

Wales Vs Portugal

Nothing can be more amusing than watching Ronnie play for Portugal. Although after the Champions League Final earlier this year, the star player has taken some time to get into his stride but the 3-3 draw with Hungary brought him back in the game. And now that Portugal’s star player has sprung in action there’s nothing stopping him from throwing strops and spicing things up for the nerve-wracking match with Wales.

Wales on the other hand has surprised us all by making it to the semi-finals. The debutant team holds a game changing card named Gareth Bale. Also Robson-Kanu, the underdog player was let go by Reading Football club of England and now is being chased by popular clubs seems promising for Wales.

Wales has shown a wonderful run of form by topping Group B, moving forward after defeating Northern Ireland 1-0 before overthrowing Belgium in the quarter finals by 3-1. On the flip side Portugal who finished off third in the group F further needed extra time to finish Croatia and penalties to defeat Poland before making it to the Semi-Finals. Needles to say Portugal has to step up their game in order to take Wales. All we can say is the excitement is about to get bigger and we can expect a mind-blowing game before the final battle.

Germany Vs France

Stade Velodrome in Marseille will be set on fire when Germany and France battle to make their way to the Finals of 2016. Both the teams have rightly earned their spot in the Semi-Finals and will now leave no stone unturned in their quest to lift the Euro 2016 trophy. France after topping Group A made their way to semi finals after defeating Ireland by 2-1 in the second round and Iceland by 5-2 in the quarter final. Now with the return of Adil Rami and N’Golo Kante from suspension plus Griezman and Giroud, their star strikers in great form, there will be nothing stopping France from taking Germany by Storm.

Germany on the other hand also finished top of their Group C and managed to show up in the semi-finals after defeating Slovakia in the second round and Italy in the quarter-final. The team has demonstrated the strongest defense so far in the tournament but will have to play France without Mario Gomez, their only striker who has been ruled out of the game due to a hamstring injury. Sami Khedira and Mats Hummels are also sitting out the match.

Till now the odds seem to favor France. Moreover when France has come this far there's no way they will be phased out easily by a Germany on their home soil. All that is left for us is an action packed semi-   finals giving way to thrilling final.

Finding The Best Bookmaker Promotions in Australia 2016

For Australian punters who are looking into their options it is important to review the industry leading bookmaker promotions in 2016. Ladbrokes promo codes and other well established bookmakers such as Bet365, William Hill, and Luxbet each have their own set of values that cater to the different levels of sports bettors.

For many punters, the depth of each site's sports betting related promos is often the distinguishing factor. There are plenty of online sportsbooks that offer lucrative bonuses as a means for drawing customers. However, some of those sportsbooks carry low ratings for a variety of reasons. The most astute punters understand the value of sticking with the top online bookmakers due to the value derived from dealing with sites that have a stellar reputation.

The Range of Promos

Each of Australia's top online bookmakers carries a healthy menu of sports betting promos. Of course, each site starts with a welcome bonus offer that is designed to catch the eye of prospective customers. Beyond the requisite welcome bonus offer, most of the top sites will come back with promotional offers that engage its loyal punters on a daily or weekly basis. For the sites that also provide access to horse racing, poker, bingo and casino gaming, they also include a vast range of promotions to help get customers into action. It's worth noting that each top site has its own promos manager whose job it is to come up with creative ways to reward punters and beat the competition.

Leaving no stone unturned, most of the industry's daily and weekly sports betting bonus promotions revolve around free bets on specific events, odds and/or line adjustment options, cashback offers on losses, in-play wagering opportunities, wagering insurance and premium pricing on designated events. All of these promos are designed to give punters added value and more wagering opportunities regardless of the size of their bankrolls.

When it comes to horse racing and casino action, the promotions target things like free spins, reload deposit bonuses, cash rebates and unique ways to increase the chances of winning horse racing bets.

How to Find the Top Bonus Offers in Australia

When shopping for a new sportsbook, there are two key factors that should be considered when analyzing a site's promotions. Given that the menu of events and betting options will be quite similar from one online sportsbook to the next, it will usually be the bonus packages that will often help punters distinguish between bookmakers.

The first key factor is the actual monetary value of the offer. This should come as no surprise. For the most part, promos for sportsbooks will target free bets. In some cases, a free bet bonus might be offered based on the amount of a punter's first deposit while other sites might prefer making it’s free bet bonus contingent on the punter's first real cash wager. Either way, a free bet bonus of up to $200 is better than a free bet bonus of up to $100.

Before any punter becomes too enamored with the amount of a bonus offer, there's another key factor worthy of consideration. The real value of a bonus could well be enhanced or mediated by the offer's terms and conditions. Frankly, a $500 free bet bonus with a 5X rollover requirement is less appealing than a $100 free bet bonus with no rollover requirement. That also applies to terms and conditions that limit betting options and provide prohibitive time restrictions. The best bonuses are the ones that provide a nice balance between monetary value and reasonable terms and conditions.

Ladbrokes Promotions

For a variety of reasons, Ladbrokes tends to have the best bonus menu for punters who prefer betting on sports and horse racing. It's not so much the monetary value that makes the Australian Ladbrokes promotions attractive. It has more to do with lenient terms and conditions.

As a great example, Ladbrokes' welcome bonus offer comes with two options. The first one rewards the punter with a maximum free bet bonus of $100 based on their first real cash wager while the second option offers a $75 free bet bonus based on the punter's first deposit. Neither of those amounts are as attractive as the $200 matching first bet offer being made by William Hill. However, Ladbrokes free bets come with no rollover requirement and favorable terms when it comes to wagering and time restrictions. When weighing everything as a whole, Ladbrokes has the better welcome promotion.

For more information related to the bonus promotions on each site, punters are encouraged to visit bookmaker's review websites for opinions on how the offers stack up.

Make more money at the track

Horse racing is an exciting sport for many people across the globe. Sometimes the competition is for speed and sometimes it is for endurance. It may look complicated to some however horse racing is a great sport to get involved in especially if you do not own a horse.
Variations involved in horse racing include; racing on obstacles, restriction of specific breeds to a race, racing over different distances, racing on different track surfaces among other variations. This has enhanced this sporting activity.

To ensure that participants know where and when the racing will take place, organizers come up with a horse racing form that indicates all the places for the racing. The horse racing form is incorporated with other relevant details about the racing and posted online as a horse racing form guide. People interested in betting should check on the horse racing form guides to know the place where competitions will be held, their track number, distance, time as well as other relevant details. The form is usually updated to make sure that it complies with the current situation in the field.

Types of horse racing

There are different types of horse racing practiced today. The following are some of the most common types.

Harness racing: This is where a horse races while pulling a jockey in a sulky or a cart.

Flat racing: This is a very common horse racing practiced almost everywhere. This is where horses gallop between two points. A flat racing is done at a distance of between 400 meters to two and a half miles. Tracks where the racing happens are mostly oval in shape, but there are also some people who prefer figure eight tracks.Horses are loaded with the same weight during the race, but there are some allowances on female and young horses when they run against male horses.

Jump racing: This is where the tracks are fitted with obstacles where horses are supposed to jump. The obstacles are of different sizes. This means that an old horse will be made to jump over different obstacles from juvenile horses.

Importance of horse racing activities
Horse racing is mainly carried out as a sporting activity. However there is a certain amount of decorum that is expected at this events. It is not just a simple spectator sport since it has a lot of economic interest and importance. Spectators usually engage in gambling and this has made some of them to gain a lot of cash from it.

Gambling on horse racing

Gamblers usually bet with a given amount of money set aside just for this purpose, uncertain of what will happen at the end. The main intention like any other form of gambling is earning additional money from the initial cash invested. One chooses the horse assumed to be the fastest and bet for it. This coupled with using one's knowledge on things such as race conditions, which jockey is racing and the indications in the horses posture and movements prior to the race commencing.

If a spectator decides to bet on a horse he or she will have a set of odds in which the horse is favored or not favored to win. This is information also found in the form guide. For example a horse that is not expected to win may have the odds set to 8-1 meaning that for every 1 unit of money gambled the gambler will win 8 times that amount should the horse win the race.

In conclusion, horse racing is a very important activity to both jockeys and spectators. This is because spectators can have the chance to make bets and at the same time enjoy the thrill of the race, whereas jockeys earn a lot of money through winning awards.

William Hill Online Casino Gets Five Stars

When I look for a site where I can play casino games without a lot of fuss and bother, I always gravitate to the tried-and-true William Hill online casino at This site may not have a lot of bells and whistles but it has exactly what I need (which is why I keep on returning). When I punt online, I don’t like to be assaulted with colours and graphics and flashing lights (if I wanted that, I’d go to Vegas); instead, I want the ability to find my favourite games without fighting my way through a maze of instructions and detours. William Hill is streamlined and straightforward – just the way I like it.

The William Hill online casino seems to read my mind in terms of priorities. For instance, I love a good bonus, and they put the promos and bonuses front and centre; you never have to fish around to find the information you’re looking for. And the folks at William Hill are super-generous. Not only do you get great first-deposit bonuses if you start off slow (150% up to £150), but mid-rollers and high-rollers get compensated as well (£350 free for a deposit of £500 and £500 for a deposit of £1,000, respectively). Second deposits are also eligible for a bonus and, as you continue to play on the site, you also get bonuses depending on which banking method you use.

Another reason I like playing with William Hill is because peace of mind is important to me. When I started punting online I was nervous about getting paid, not understanding the rules, and about the security of my personal information. As soon as I started reading about the different Internet casinos, I quickly learned that William Hill’s reputation is head and shoulders above all others. The company’s been around for ages and they really know what they’re doing. This becomes clear the very first time you need to contact their customer service team; those people are great! They’re available 24/7, they’re super friendly and nice and go out of their way to answer any question I had. It seems to me that from start (registration) to finish (collecting my winnings), William Hill online casino is like a well-oiled machine, created just for my gaming pleasure. Add to that all the incredible games, and it is easy to see why William Hill is a winner.

Scratch Card Win

Are Scratch Cards Really Free?

Although some online scratch card sites offer free scratch cards or free bonus cash – you should always read the terms and conditions to see if it’s really free.

Can you Really Claim Free Scratch Cards Online?

You know that saying is something looks too good to be true it probably is?  Well that can often be the case with some of the offers featured on online scratch card sites.  They entice players with the offer of free no deposit bonuses or free scratch cards as part of their promotions – but sometimes there are pesky terms and conditions or wagering requirements to be met that make the offer not quite as good as what you first thought!

No Deposit Bonuses

When joining a new site – it definitely is an incentive if there is some free no deposit cash involved.  Not all scratch card sites do this – but often you will find just that.  It can vary from a free fiver up to sometimes a free tenner.  Although you are generally free to spend this bonus cash on what you would like (sometimes only certain types of games are eligible) – if you manage to win something – you won’t be allow to withdraw unless you have deposited and wagered a certain amount of cash.  So although the bonus is free – you can’t claim your winnings straight away.

Welcome Bonuses

Welcome bonuses are another way for you to play scratch cards for free.  The average welcome bonus is 100% – which means the sites will double your deposit.  So although it can be advertised as free cash – of course it is only free if you make a deposit.  Again sometimes there are restrictions on what games you can spend your bonus cash on and if you choose to deposit just £10 perhaps – you still will probably need to deposit again to be able to withdraw your winnings.

Free Scratch Cards in Promotions

You will often find free scratch cards as part as a promotion, which of course on first glance very appealing but again – you will find there is some criteria that has to be met.  For example you may have to have already deposited within that week – or it could be that if you spend £5 on the game – that you will get another £5 for free.  It is unlikely that you will get this offer no strings attached but it doesn’t mean its not a good deal- it just means it won’t be completely free.

I think the moral of the article is that make sure you always read the small print when you see the word “free” – there will probably be a catch.
