Online betting is indeed more convenient than the traditional ones, the reason why there is a significant increase in demand for online betting, and so does the number of bookmakers online.
Since there are innumerable bookmakers available across the internet, there is a massive possibility that scammers take this as an opportunity to mix in their fraudulent bookmaker’s website to the legitimate ones to deceive bettors and take their money.
As a bettor, you need to be wise in choosing your bookmaker, or else you would compromise your profits and deposits. Here are some tips for identifying that an online sports bookmaker is a fraud to help you with this.
From the website design itself, you can Identify that it has shady schemes. If you noticed that the design is too mediocre or has inferior quality, then that is a hint that the online bookmaker is a fraud. Also, look for bugs, errors, and pop-up ads.
A legitimate bookmaker would invest generously in the appearance and the overall performance of their website, knowing that it significantly impacts their customers’ impression. So, if a website has a poor website design, be suspicious.
A trustworthy online bookmaker’s website should have UI and UX design that gives the bettors a real convenience. Furthermore, it is easier to find reliable online sports bookmakers now, especially in Europe and the US. You can even look at the best sportsbetting comparison list for Europe and the US in several legit bookmaker sites because they have the strict implementation of rules and laws to protect bettors.
At this point, you can confirm that the website you used to bet on is a scam. Fraudulent online sports bookmakers may be tricky at first because it will make you believe that they are legitimate until payouts happen. They are starting to make excuses to delay your withdrawal request, or their customer service may not entertain you at all.
The truth is that they are only avoiding giving you payouts. If you encounter this, it is better to close your account and report the website to the authorities.
Exaggeratedly optimistic offers
Scammers aim to entice more people that they can deceive. The more people they deceive, the more money they can get. For them to be successful, they need to have favorable terms and conditions or offers. No matter how high the offer was, they don’t care about it anyway because they would not even feel responsible for giving you that. After all, it is a scam.
If you saw offers such as an 800% welcome bonus, you better be cautious about this and stay away from it to protect your money. A legitimate online bookmaker would provide you a realistic offer.
The Verification Process Takes A Lot Of Time
Before betting on any online betting platform, you must submit information to your bookmaker to apply for approval. The same goes for withdrawals. Things worsen with withdrawals because a fraudulent online sports bookmaker usually delays the verification process to buy some time or avoid paying their clients.
Therefore, in this way, there is a high chance that you can’t claim your money anymore. So, from the moment you have trouble with the verification process, this is a red flag. It is better to deposit at a minimum to test whether the bookmaker you had was legitimate.
Poor Customer Service
You can tell a hint that an online sports bookmaker is fake because you cannot see any contact information provided. However, even having contact information provided does not guarantee that the bookmaker is already legitimate.
Try to contact the contact information provided or their customer service. Assess whether they are accommodating and responsive or were able to answer your concerns confidently. Usually, a fake bookmaker has poor or unresponsive customer service. That’s why it is better to avoid this kind of bookmaker.
Money is very precious, and everyone wants to have it. Losing your money because of a scam by an online bookmaker is very heartbreaking. That is why you have to be cautious and always protect your money.
Remember that a legitimate online sports bookmaker provides you the best service. You can see it by their website, customer service, reviews, and offers. They should give you convenience in your transactions instead of stress and anxiety.
