Popular Sports and Casino Betting Online in the USA
Online betting is any type of betting conducted over the internet. This includes sports betting, casinos and virtual poker. The first online betting venue opened to the public, was ticket sales at the first annual Liechtenstein International Casino Fair in 1994. Since that time, online betting has become a multi-billion dollar industry.
Online betting venues offer gamblers all the convenience of a traditional betting office without the cost or hassle of traveling to the site. With most online betting websites, you can place your bets from the comfort of your own home and have the results appear on your screen or e-mail inbox. Online sports betting sites provide information about the odds, game schedule and betting rules. Online betting websites also conduct promotional bets of varying prices, which are generally transparent to users.
Most online betting venues offer moneyline bets, also known as exacta bets. A moneyline bet is a bet where the winning odds are the same as the overall odds for the game. If the game has no probability of payout in one outcome, the moneyline bettor will win a percentage of their deposit. For example, if a bettor wins two out of three games he will keep his deposit. Most moneyline bets have odds close to their actual odds, but they may not be precise in all circumstances.
