How Easy Is It To Bet On Sports Online?

Posted on October 27, 2019 by John Harris

Betting on sports is a craft as old as sports themselves. With advances in technology over the last century it has become increasingly easier to bet on sports, whether through legal or illegal means.

Of course the most recognized of the legal methods is sports books in Las Vegas. Through Gambling Magazine you can learn about the oldest casinos in Las Vegas.

Changes made to federal law in 2018 has given other states the ability to also have legal sports betting. As of 2019, there are now 13 states with some form of legal sports betting.

Another access point for sports betting is through online betting. According to Gamblers Daily Digest, online casinos are the next big thing in gambling. Since online gaming has been available, it has only grown in size, revenue, and popularity and now makes up a significant portion of all revenue earned from gambling.

Over time as more people become comfortable with online gaming and more countries accept it, watch for online gaming to continue to grow in popularity and revenue.

According to Lucian Marinescu from OnlineCasinoGems, “Betting on sports online is so easy and convenient that the industry certainly will continue to grow. Online casinos are becoming more popular and making the experience even more inviting for those looking for an online betting experience.”

For many years, professional sports leagues in the United States were openly against open sports betting. However, in recent years they seem to have embraced the concept and decided that it is an avenue that can help increase their overall revenue.

Las Vegas is now home to a professional hockey team and will soon be home to the NFL with the Raiders moving from Oakland to Las Vegas. It will likely be only a matter of time before a Super Bowl is held in Las Vegas.

Once online casinos become more common and professional sports teams can figure out a way to financially capitalize, you can bet that they will become another common tool for sports betting.
