Top Sports Betting You Should Know
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Gambling and betting are never going out of the trends even if we are living in 3019. With the change in technology, lots of changes have come into both these things. Those days are gone when one has no option to bet anywhere else but to contact bookies. Online gambling and online casino have also attracted many gamblers across the world. Users can play slots, blackjack, roulette, and many other games on online casino sites and other games on best bingo sites. It takes a lot of time, experience, analytical skills, and patience to become a successful sports bettor. But you can learn some tips and guides so here, we would like to give you some important sport betting tips you need to know.

Research the game well

Instead of relying on movies and television show announcers to give you the advice on betting, look for someone who has had a successful track record or do research on your own. Chances are that you will have better luck after you have more knowledge of the game itself.

Avoid exotic bets

Many skillful betters bet in series whether it’s a combination of games or a whole series. But you should avoid this, especially if you’re a beginner, you don’t want to lose all your money in your first bet. Stick to just individual games and be careful not to invest all your money into a single bet.

Avoid chasing bets

If you lose one day, don’t try to make it up by getting in on a bet the very next day. Doing this could make you bankrupt or get you in a lot of trouble. It is a dangerous trend to try and win back your losses without even checking how much money you actually have available to make a bet.

Bet at the right time

Instead of placing bets at the beginning of the season or even at the beginning of a game, wait for some time to pass so you can see how the players are playing on that day. there are way too many factors that can happen within a game or during a practice, that can cause players to get hurt. Keep this in mind, you want to make sure that you’re betting at the right time.

Locks don’t exist

There is no such thing as a locked bet in sports. People who follow sports closely are aware that even the smallest thing can happen that can cause you to go from winning a bet to downright losing. These things can include penalties, missed shots, injuries, etc. anything can happen in a game.

Consider underdogs

The majority of people prefer betting on the players that have a track record of winning but often the underdogs go unlooked. It is easy to bet on an underdog because they are trying to make a name for themselves and will perform at a higher level. They are especially known for playing better at home games.

Money management

Undoubtedly, the most important thing you need to make a sports bet at the beginning is money. Without money, you can’t make it bet so money management comes in at the number one tip for making sports bets. You need to put into consideration how much spare money you have to make sports bets and make a budget to make sure you are not overspending. This will help you cope when you lose and will keep you at peace in the money department. So you don’t end up homeless.

YGAM, the UK charity that works to inform, educate and safeguard young people against problematic gambling and social gaming, has joined forces with Caesars Entertainment EMEA and Queen Mary University of London to participate in a ground breaking apprenticeship degree course in ‘Social Change’ which has attracted six times more applicants per place than Oxford University. The four-year BSc course comprises two days of study per week with the remaining time spent working with the chosen charity. YGAM’s undergraduate apprentice is 22 year-old Nadia Tarik whose post as Development Officer is being funded by Caesars Entertainment EMEA.

Expanding on its involvement in the pioneering initiative, Sarah Sculpher, Chief Marketing Officer at Caesars Entertainment EMEA says, “Educating on the potential risks of problem gambling is a core facet of our business strategy. Caesars Entertainment has worked extensively with, and provided ongoing financial support to, the Young Gamers & Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) to promote education and awareness around gambling since its inception. We are tremendously supportive of educating young people about gambling related harm to support the prevention of gambling related problems. Our £50,000 donation over two years will fully fund Nadia’s London living wage role and support costs with YGAM.

Sculpher continues: “Social responsibility is hugely important for all businesses, but particularly so in a business such as gaming, which is exciting but also carries an element of risk. Education is key. It is an integral part of our business strategy to educate and train all our front-line team members on the importance of social responsibility and to ensure that our customers enjoy their casino entertainment in a safe, welcoming and entertaining environment. Education is also at the heart of our long term partnership with YGAM. We support them with financial resources which enables them to recruit people to provide more education where needed in the community, making a real difference to people’s lives. We look forward to watching Nadia’s progress and the positive impact she has.”

Lee Willows, co-founder and CEO of YGAM is delighted the charity has been invited to help spearhead the first degree course in Social Change and that Caesars Entertainment EMEA is helping to facilitate the journey. He stated: “The partnership between the social sector, further education and the commercial world is invigorating and a force for really positive social change. I am extremely grateful to Caesars who share our vision and I am delighted that YGAM, which was formed just five years ago, is being spoken about in the same breath as fellow Social Change degree partners, the Scouts, WaterAid, Action for Children and the Alzheimer’s Society. It is a great privilege to help progress this important development which will help forge pathways into the communities that we serve thanks to the energy and dynamism of student/apprentices such as Nadia and the vision and support of progressive business leaders such as Caesars.”

Which payment methods can Germany rely on for gambling in the future?

Which payment methods can Germany rely on for gambling in the future?
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

German players will have to continue playing online casino games without PayPal. The online financial service has cut ties with internationally licensed operators after an injunction was served by the government on October 21st. Transactions to and from online casinos will no longer be available as a result. Several sites such as iGaming Business, have reported that products without authorization by state jurisdictions will be banned.

With German residents restricted from using PayPal as a deposit option for online casinos, we ask what the future holds as far as payment methods goes in Germany. 

Online gambling in Germany

Online gambling is legal in the local state of Schleswig-Holstein, which issues online casino licenses for operators. Between 2008 and 2012, this was the only state where gambling was allowed in the country. In an attempt to open up the market, new rules came into effect in 2012 on a state by state basis. But this has led to more confusion among players trying to make sense of the strict regulations put in place.

While there is a crackdown on the online casinos in the country, sports betting is still available with PayPal. To get a better understanding of what is really going on we asked Thomas Hahn, German gambling market expert at Leadstar Media, to clarify matters.

“The issue is for companies operating both casino and sportsbook under the same umbrella, if the two are associated with each other, they are not allowed to offer PayPal as a payment option any longer.”

Some online gambling operators have therefore separated their online casino product and sportsbooks. According to their site MyWettbonus.de, german betting sites with PayPal is still a viable option for the players. 

When asked what this means for them as an affiliate, he said:

“The German market is a big one for us, so obviously it hasn’t gone unnoticed as this is kind of a big deal in Germany. We’ve had to make some changes to stay up to date with the current bookmakers that offer PayPal as well as the online casinos we list on MyCasinoFreunde.de. It’s too early yet for us to see any impact of this, but Germany is a country that adapts swiftly to new trends. As long as we update our visitors with the latest information in regards to this and offer other solutions, it shouldn’t have too much of a negative impact on us. ” 

The future of online gambling in Germany

Online casinos are still not allowed to market towards consumers outside of Schleswig-Holstein, but that might soon change. The remaining 15 states in Germany have plans to license online sports betting in the coming years. June 30th 2021 has been earmarked as the date for states to have reached a consensus. 

Whether or not PayPal’s new German terms of service will still be effective by then is unknown at this point. New payment methods have the potential to rise in Germany, leading to a battleground in terms of market share.  

Right now, exciting payment providers such as Trustly and Klarna are options available to the German market and are set to increase in popularity with PayPal out of the equation. On top of that the likes of Apple Pay and Google Pay are also well placed to benefit in the future.

Local authorities in Bratislava have introduced new restrictions on gambling in the Slovak capital. Changes to the National Gambling Act which came into force earlier this year have allowed municipalities to take action against the dangerous vice.

As per the latest restrictions, gambling halls can no longer operate within 200 meters of schools or other educational facilities, institutions servicing children and youth and treatment centres for non-substance addictions.

Bingo, board games, gambling machines, video game terminals, technical equipment operated directly by players, or other technical equipment used for gambling will be completely banned from use on certain dates – most notably during national holidays.

Currently, a petition for a complete ban on gambling in Bratislava is underway and it has already gathered over 100,000 signatures. In September, Matúš Vallo, mayor of the Slovak capital announced the creation of a new working group that will be communicating with citizens and civil association and trying to answer their concerns.
