Most people assumed that the Internet would revolutionize the way we bet, just like the way it has revolutionized many things in life. However, recent studies have shown that the prevalence of the number of people betting online is not as popular as other formS of gambling, such as phone betting, going down the bookmaker and being at the track. So for those who have not worked enough the benefits of betting online instead of these alternatives, here 10 good reasons why you should be:

1) Free bets: Due to the amount of competition online, betting companies like to encourage you to join their service with the hope that it formS a kind of brand loyalty. To attract those who regularly gives a free bet. This is usually done as a matched bet (You put in a certain amount and they reach that figure. ) And allow you to double your money, if not more. Some of the major betting events like the World Series and the Kentucky Derby these free bets usually four times, so that a very attractive incentive. When was the last time you entered the betting house and the lady behind the counter said, "Here, have $ 10 in us." Probably never!

2) Compare odds: There are many websites online that allow you to compare odds from all kinds of bets from all manor of betting events. You will be amazed how much he may very likely one broker to another, and by using online tools odds comparison you can find the best odds. This type of information is only available online, but is free to use. If you are sitting in the bookies all day will only get the odds available from that specific store, which can be much shorter than they are elsewhere.

3) Special offers: Something that seems to be most popular online special offers such as "special money back." This is something you online gambling site offered before a sporting event for the interest of gamblers. This could be something like if your horse falls or if your team loses on penalties you will get your game again. This is something that is rarely offered in a bookmaker on the street or in a telephone bet.

4) Other betting options: If you know anything about betting then you've heard of betting exchanges and spread betting companies. These new betting sectors have largely formed due to the popularity of the Internet, allowing all sorts of betting variables, with the end result is just one of them. Although these fairly recent betting options have caused controversy in the industry and in certain sports, you can not deny that they are very popular and are here to stay.

5) Increased markets: Most bookies tend to offer the popular betting markets, such as horse racing, soccer, basketball, baseball. With online gambling are betting a large selection to choose from including foreign sports betting, policies, novelty betting and much more. For example some betting websites will allow you to bet on something like the 2nd division of the German Handball League and Gaelic football in Ireland. In order to bet on sporting events and did not even occur in this country was unknown until the Internet has made possible. This can be very beneficial for bettors who follow all sorts of obscure leagues, sports or events.

6) Access to information: It does not take a genius to realize that you can get all kinds of facts, figures, statistics, historical data from the internet. It can be accessed very quickly to a low or no cost. No matter how good the author guides the way it is in his favorite role, never going to compete with the amount of data that is available online. There are all manor of forums, blogs and reports that are easily accessible to help you with your betting options.

7) Comfort: Why did you drag to the bottom of the bookies (which may be miles away), where you can relax in the comfort of your own home and place your bets. The bookies are often sad places with formica chairs, decoration mediocre and usually a lot of sorry faces all around. That makes much more sense to put the boiler, open the browser and see the bets of the day.

8) Speed: whenever you have a reliable broadband connection, online betting is instant. No standing in line or possibly missing the start of the race or game. You just need to find your bet, select the options and place your bet. All this can be done in the time it takes to write your choice in the betting slip. Some may feel that your gambling is so fast, but usually have to wait 5 to 20 seconds to connect to a representative. Why wait, when not necessary?

9) Access from anywhere: where legal gambling in the jurisdiction where you are, then there is no reason why you can not make a bet from anywhere in the world, provided you have an Internet connection. You can transfer money, place bets, check your account anywhere, any time of day or night. Most of the main street at night, early in the bookies, with the odd few staying open late. The same goes for several telephone betting services, and just imagine your hotel bill when you called in half a dozen bets.

10) In the race betting: there is a new technology begins to become more and more available online that allows you to bet on the races or an entire game. This is a very sophisticated that is changing the way you can bet quite dramatically. There is no way in the world that this could be possible in betting shops or even by telephone.

For some, going down the bookmakers is so habitual that it is impossible to change, but for others, should now be clear that the advantages are clear. Increase your chances of winning more bets, play online!
