On the internet, there are more than a thousand bookmakers. If you like to bet online, it is advisable to have a very good one. Here are some tips on how to find your ideal bookmaker.
What are the criteria for choosing a good bookmaker?
First, you need to look at his license. A good bookmaker must have a license in France or more generally in Europe. The French license is a guarantee of credibility. But it is not enough. A bookmaker who is a beginner and not very reliable can be recognized by the number of opinions of Internet users. If it is a quality bookmaker, several positive reviews will be left by Internet users who are satisfied with the services they have received. Yet, if you do not find any reviews on them, you should look for another bookmaker. The bookmaker must also be very responsive, transparent in its operation and have easy contact.
How to choose an online betting site?
If you are a new bettor, you should know that some sites are to be avoided, because they record many money losses. It is therefore important to choose your online betting sites carefully. You can do this based on criteria such as ease of use, a good financial portfolio, reliability, bonuses, quality of bets offered and odds levels. Each of these points is important.
When an online betting site is not easy to use, there is an obvious risk that the bettor will lose his money. Although this is not always the case, it is best to be wary. Flashy bonuses are lures to be wary of. Likewise, when the financial portfolio of the site is not significant, or when the odds levels are too low or even generally too high on the site, it is best not to make bets on such a site. You will certainly lose your stake, and you will not even have the chance to claim it back.
How to tell if a betting site is safe?
There are literally tens of thousands of potential betting sites to choose from. We’ve visited and reviewed hundreds of them. Over time, we’ve developed criteria for evaluating the safest betting sites. Here are the factors to consider before signing up with an online bookmaker:
- A bookie must have a valid gaming license: If a site does not have a license issued by a credible authority, it is a warning sign that it may not be safe. It’s even worse if it once had one but lost it. This means that it has violated the rules of the issuing authority. There are many gaming authorities in the world, but the most valid ones to consider are the AAMS license, issued directly by the Customs and Monopolies Agency, or the foreign Curaçao license, which, although not up to AAMS regulation, is still considered quite safe.
- A bookmaker must have an encrypted connection: All you need to know about this as an online bettor is that you want to bet on sites with https: // at the beginning of the web address. This means that the site is running on an SSL encrypted connection. Without going into boring details, this makes it virtually impossible for hackers and criminals to steal financial and/or personal data over the connection.
- Must have an established history and a solid base for bettors: The longer a betting site has been around, the better, in our opinion. If a site has served thousands of players since 1998, it is highly unlikely to be dangerous. We are also aware, of course, that there are many new online betting sites every day, and many of them are safe. In such cases, we examine the management team and the company that runs them. If they are experienced and run multiple safe betting sites, we will be happy to recommend them. If a site is completely new, run by a startup with no reputation or experience in the industry, it’s highly unlikely you’ll find that site on our recommended list.
