Everything You Should Know About No Wagering Casinos 0

Posted on March 15, 2018 by Cathy Carter

If you’re familiar with gambling at casinos or online casinos, then I am sure you all must have heard about wagering requirements that most of these casinos have. However, some casinos do offer no wagering bonuses as well. Before we get to that, let’s try and understand what wagering requirements are.

Wagering requirements are conditions that most online casinos impose on bonuses and free spins keeping in mind the end goal of keeping players from exploiting the offer. Most online casinos offer at least one bonus with a specific end goal to draw in new players and keep them connected with, regardless of whether they are welcome bonuses, free spins, or seasonal advancement. The issue with these bonuses is that players regularly think it is free credit to play the casino’s games with the shot of winning some genuine cash. In all actuality, in any case, this is a long way from reality.


Most bonuses will have wagering requirements appended to them which imply that players need to wager the bonus sum many times over before they would have the capacity to pull back any winnings. For instance, suppose we have a £100 bonus with a 50X wagering necessity. So as to pull back any winnings you would have won off the bonus, you would need to wager over £5,000 (£100 x 50) preceding having the capacity to pull back those winnings. Envision you had won £1,000, £2,000 or even £5,000 off that bonus, just to acknowledge the bonus winnings, you would need to bear on playing and risk losing everything just to have the capacity to pull back it. Numerous players refuse to acknowledge any bonuses for that very reason and that’s why they want to use their own particular cash to play so in any event on the off chance that if they do win, there are no surprises with regards to cashing out.

A New Chapter in US Sports Betting History? 0

Posted on March 12, 2018 by Stephen Benton

betting-LVGambling has been in a very ambiguous situation in the United States for years, even with the changes that took place in the last decade. There are states where all forms of gambling – even online gambling at Wild Jack Casino – is legal and regulated, and there are others where not even lotteries are permitted. Sports betting, for example, has been under a federal ban all over in the US (with the exception of Nevada) for more than two decades thanks to the piece of legislation called the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992, that effectively outlawed it to protect the integrity of the sport. But times have changed, and society changed with them – betting has become an “acceptable” pastime today in most parts of the world. And some states want to legalize and regulate it – New Jersey has even taken its case to the Supreme Court, calling the PASPA unconstitutional and demanding its repeal.

At the same time, two of the three biggest sports leagues in the United States have also changed their stance on legal sports betting. The NFL is holding its ground the longest – it is still against betting on its games, but its tone has softened a bit this year, suggesting that it will probably “accept its fate” if the federal law banning sports betting is finally repealed. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred was reserved about the business last summer, stating that his league would prefer to have a say in how the business is implemented and regulated if the PASPA is repealed. It might already be a bit late for that – if the law is repealed, states will have the right to decide for themselves how to handle the matter – but this is a bridge they’ll cross when they get to it.

How Betting Lines Work In Sports Betting 0

Posted on September 19, 2017 by Jaxon Pescott

sports bettingFor beginning sports gamblers, betting line can be confusing to understand. Unlike point spreads, which are concerned with who wins and by how much, a moneyline is solely dependent upon who wins. Moneylines are used most commonly in low-scoring games like baseball or hockey, but they may also be used in boxing and other sports.

Here is a guide on how actually betting lines works in Sports Betting.

1. What is Betting Line?

Before we start with how betting lines works, it is more important to understand what actually betting line is? Betting line is a not as complex as people think but still it throws the average person off and deters them from wanting to learn more about sports gambling. Betting lines are wagers that are made against the line. Line, is a number assigned by the bookmakers which handicaps one team and favors another when two teams play each other and one is perceived as being more likely to win.

For example, if the bookmaker believes Team A is a 10-point better team than Team B, the bookmaker can handicap Team A 10 points. The line bet becomes Team A to win by more than 10pts or Team B to get within 10 points. Both outcomes should be of equal odds roughly $1.90. Read the rest of this entry →

Posted on August 14, 2017 by John Harris

Sport Hockey Fan Team Ice HockeyNot many of us have the good fortune to play sports for a living. If we did, we would soon be on the way to making a fortune. However, while we may need to be content with the meager salary we get from our ‘normal’ jobs, there are still ways to make money from our sporting obsession.

Here are a few (sporting) tips to get you going, and you won’t need to break any sweat in the process.

Sports betting

An easy, though risky way to make money from sports, is to take part in sports betting. From horse racing to EPL betting, signing up to a site like Unibet and spending a little bit of money on the bet can net you a sizeable return if your luck is in. Of course, you can just as easily lose money, and for many people, betting can lead to a gambling addiction. However, if you limit yourself each month, you may just score your bank balance a winning goal.

Sell sporting memorabilia

You have probably amassed quite a bit of memorabilia yourself over the years, and amongst the tat, you have no doubt built up, there may be something that is worth a lot of money. Of course, true sports obsessives will buy anything associated with their favorite team or sport, so you may be able to sell anything in your collection. Letting go of it, of course, is another matter, but if you want to make money, this is a viable way to do it. Take a look at sites such as Amazon and eBay and price up your items.

If you know your stuff about your chosen sport, you may even find something of value online or at a car boot sale, giving you the means to sell it for a profit. Be aware that there are a lot of forgeries out there, however, so be wary of sellers looking to flog signed items, for example. Read the rest of this entry →
