Apart from their major and predominant activity- the sports-betting, nowadays almost all of the bookmakers offer many other types of gambling. The main ones are: Casino, Poker, Games and Bingo.
As we are not specialists in any of the above mentioned gambling options, here we are not going to go over each one of them with a profound knowledge. In this article we are mainly going to discuss the money bagging options they present to us- the sports-bettors.
Considering the fact this site is to a large extend a site about the different kinds of free bets, deposit and welcome bonuses, cash-backs and many other money-back specials, we are going to have a look at those options from a bit different angle- from the angle of bettors on a search of free money.
Let’s just start with the reasons why we have so many gambling opportunities, all in one place- the ex traditional bookmaker. At the beginning of online gambling there have been just pure Bookmakers, pure Casinos, pure Poker rooms. and so on. With the years passing though they might just have noticed that the mentality of the average gambler has changed so much in terms of the search for the easiest ways to entertain themselves gambling, that they have seen it as a golden opportunity to offer many gambling products under the same roof. And the flow of the money into their bank accounts must have multiplied a lot. The modern gambler obviously has the mentality that he knows a bit of everything about all the kinds of gambling, and he is not very hesitant, after making a couple of bets at the Sportsbook, to go trying his lick by playing for a while some Blackjack or Roulette for example, and why not some Poker and Bingo after this. How right is that from an investment point of view is hard to say, but these guys must be having a lot of fun, taking advantage from the whole plethora of gambling options. And remember- fun is one of the main reasons everyone should be in the betting/gambling/ game, so we can not blame them at all for having this fun, and possibly winning some money in the same time.
We believe that what is more important to us is that the bonuses the Sportbooks give us to play at any of the gambling options, can be used by us as a good way of increasing our bankroll for betting on sports, which is our favorite game.
It is worth noting that the bonuses, or the free money you can get in playing those games are much larger than the freebets, you obtain, when you sign-up at the Sportsbook. If the average size of a free bet at a bookmaker is say 25 pounds, the rewards you are given for playing Poker and Casino games are much bigger by far. The average bookmaker will most probably offer you 100% welcome bonus of up to 100 pounds/although some of them can go as high as 500 pounds/ for trying the Casino, and somewhere around 1,000/yes, one thousand pounds/ to join their Poker room. While the bonuses for Games and Bingo are not that big, you can still get around 100 pounds in the Games section, and probably up to 50 pounds in their Bingo hall. Now if you do a simple calculation about the average amount of free money and bonuses you could get on average from the Bookmakers, the whole thing totals up somewhere between 1,000 and 1,500 ponds. And this just from a single bookmaker. If you take into consideration there are hundreds of bookmakers around, you can do the math how much money is there to be taken as bonuses. This alone could increase your sports-betting bankroll to a serious amount, with which you can start making some really big bets in the sportsbook, and with the proper system and good management- earn a lot of money. The beautiful thing about these bonuses is that as we earlier said- they are all under the same roof, so you only need one account with any bookmaker to play them all.
Now the question is how do you extract all these money from the bookmakers, when all the bonuses are bound with huge roll-over requirements/some of them really huge/, before being able to withdraw funds. By the way it is not even obligatory to attempt to extract the whole amount of the bonus, until meeting the roll-over requirements. Even if you manage to go home with 50% of them, you are still going to be doing just fine. So do not get trapped in greed- enough is enough. And please do not try to abuse the bonuses by playing in syndicates and the like- you are going to get caught very quickly, considering the sophisticated tracking systems, the gambling sites have at their disposal.
Now when we are talking about Games and Bingo bonuses, we can not recommend any specific tactics as both are games of luck and nobody can predict luck. We have come across “authors” of some kinds of Lotto and Bingo systems, which claim these games can actually be beaten, using their absolutely outstanding systems, but for us they are just scammers and nothing more.
As to the Poker- this is probably the most difficult and multidimensional game of all, with so much physiology in it that we are planning to write a separate article for Poker lovers only.
As to the Casino games-these are probably the most realistic and objective option for collecting some money, and transferring them from deposit bonuses, to funds in sports-investing. Here in fact some tips could be given. If you remember from the article about house edges and book percentages, the smart gambler only play those Casino games, which have the smallest house edge. As we have mentioned the Casino game with the smallest house edge is the most popular Casino game of all- the Classic BlackJack. Craps and Baccarat are the next to follow. So following The Perfect Blackjack Strategy/which can get found easily on Internet/, the edge, which the house has over you could be less than 1%.. With good money management and reasonable staking plan you are actually able to eliminate this edge and even turn it into your advantage, so that you will have the edge over the house. So most obvious and reasonable solution, in order to take advantage of the deposit bonuses the Casinos give you away if you play with them are: play Classic BlackJack, following the Perfect BlackJack Strategy, adopting solid money management rules and staking plan. This way you could really take advantage of the Casino bonuses.
This article was not so much about giving you some practical advice on playing the other gambling types of games, the Sportsbook has on offer for you, but rather to show you and to familiarize you with the many other opportunities that are in front of you, when you sign-up with a particular bookmaker. This for us is a wonderful way to increase your betting bank, thus being able to play as a “big shark” in the sportsbook, under one condition though/actually a lot of conditions/: to have gained the necessary knowledge, experience and detail understanding about sports-betting/or sports-investing as we like to call it/.
We do hope that our web-site as a whole will be a big helper to you in your gambling endeavor.
