What Does ‘Alternate Points’ Mean in Betting?

Put money on the side with this savvy tip on how to make the most of your wagers in online betting.

Use The Most Popular Game

The most popular game among British bookmakers is the UK National Lottery, with a 5/6 chance of winning. Since it is such a well-established game, you will find many online bookmakers offering this game, along with numerous other games such as scratchcards and golden tickets. Using these games means you get betting opportunities without having to find a bookmaker who deals with only that game. Most online bookmakers will accept bets on most games, so you don’t have to worry about finding a specific game to place your bet on. This is also beneficial for people who bet on exotic games as not all bookmakers will accept wagers on certain sports like greyhound racing or polo. Using these games expands your chances of winning, and as a result, your overall earnings. The most popular games are what’s known as ‘straight-up’ games; these are the games where you simply need to pick the winner between two competing teams (e.g. Man Utd vs Liverpool). If you fancy having a go at these games then you should ensure that your chosen bookmaker deals with them, as it will increase your chances of winning. Even if you don’t win, you will at least have some fun playing these games.

Place Smaller Wagers

Deciding how much to wager on your first outing into the unknown can be tricky, particularly if you’re new to gambling. This is why it’s a good idea to take it easy at first, and place small bets on each leg of a horse race. Bookmakers offer a special’match-odds’ betting option which allows you to put down a single lump sum and increase your chances of winning. For example, if you’re betting on the first race at a particular venue and decide to go for a single leg bet, you will increase your odds of winning if you wager £10 on that particular leg. In this case, the £10 wager will be placed alongside the £10 you wagered on the first race. The odds of this winning combination (i.e. the £20 wager) are 1/4, or 25% (i.e. the ‘match odds’). This is because you have effectively doubled your odds of winning by combining the two parts of your wager. In addition to winning, you will gain some interest free (for the first x months) credit with several bookmakers. Once your free betting credit has expired, you will have to start paying back the interest. However, you will still be able to use the ‘match odds’ option to increase your chances of winning.

Look At The Bookmakers’ Reviews

Sometimes it’s not easy to find out which online bookmaker is the best, particularly if you’re new to gambling. One option is to look at the reviews other people have posted about the betting site you’re considering using. By reviewing previous customers’ experiences, you can get an idea of whether or not this is a good option for you. In the same way that you’d read reviews about hotels or restaurants before making a booking, you should look for online reviews about bookmakers. This way, you will better understand whether or not this is a good choice for you.

Start Small

On the subject of reviews, it is also important to look at the reputation of the site they are posted on. If you search for reviews about a specific site, you will usually find several positive and negative reviews. In some instances, the reviews can be a little extreme, but this is mostly done to highlight certain aspects of the site. If you read these reviews carefully, you will get a good idea of whether or not this is a good choice for you. As mentioned above, it’s always a good idea to start small, particularly if this is your first time gambling online. This is because, aside from ensuring you have a safe environment to play in, it also allows you to slowly get used to the idea of betting online and how it works. If you are looking for a safe environment online where you can experiment with betting, then checking out Paddy Power’s or Ladbrokes’ websites is a good idea. These sites are governed by the UK Gambling Commission, and must adhere to the highest standards of consumer protection. As well as this, they must also offer a safe and secure environment to their customers.

Useful Searches

If you follow the tips laid out above, you should be able to make the most of your wagers in online gambling. One thing that could help is doing some research before making a wager. Doing some research about the sports you are betting on can also help you decide how much you should wager. For example, you could look at how successful particular teams or players are in particular sports, or you could search for statistical information about the games you are interested in. If you have a specific team or player in mind that you want to bet on, but you aren’t sure how much to wager, then you could start off with a small amount (e.g. £5) and increase it if you end up winning. In this way, you will slowly get experience with gambling and how it works, and you will be able to put a better bet next time.
