In my last article, I talked about a few types of gambling that can be found in casinos. Some of the examples I gave were Random Numbers, Gaming Machines and Games Played At Tables. If you’re interested in reading about those games, check out my article Types of Gambling Part 1. Today, I’ll continue with the other types of gambling that you can find outside casinos.
Online gambling is the first type of gambling that you can do outside the casinos. The games that you can find are similar to those that you find in casinos. You can find all the games I mentioned above online. Of course, this also depends on the website that you choose to gamble on. The only catch is you need to find a website that is trustable, because trust me, the last thing you want to worry about when you’re already gambling so much money is whether you are falling for a scam.
If you are a Malaysian, you could try your luck on Deluxewins, a website that offers slot casino games online in Malaysia. Deluxewins also offers other types such as live casinos and sports gambling. Speaking of sports gambling, that’s next on the list.
Sports betting refers to when people place bets based on a predicted outcome of the game. Needless to say, the winning team determines who becomes rich that day. Apart from this, people can also choose to bet on individual players. For instance, they can choose a single player in a Football game and bet that he would be the player who scores the goal within a certain time frame.
How sports betting goes is there would be a bookie or bookmaker who you go to in order to place your bets. These are noted down in a sportsbook. The bookmaker would be in charge of noting down all wages made and ensuring all bets are accounted for.
Among all the sports games in the world, the top five sports that people bet on are Football, also known as Soccer, with American Football coming in second. The third most popular sport to bet on is Basketball. The fourth is Tennis and is, to date, the only individual sport in the top five sports that people bet on. The fifth and last sport is Cricket. Now, just because Cricket is at the bottom of the list, doesn’t mean that it does not garner a lot of money. It was noted that the bets came up to 17 million pounds Sterling on just a single betting website in the UK.
Of course, there are several other sports that you can place your bet on. What’s listed in this article are just to top five sports that people bet on. Fun fact did you know, that the global sports betting industry is worth a massive amount of 3 trillion USD, mind-blowing, isn’t it?
