What New Betting Sites can Offer Punters

There isn’t a punter who bets online who isn’t aware that there’s a vast number of online betting sites. Some punters stick to just one site. Some punters open accounts at multiple websites, but limit themselves to wagering at just a few. There is certainly a plethora of options here.

Even though online betting might be considered a relatively new phenomena (compared to conventional betting), there are betting sites that have been in operation for several years, some even over a decade. Those betting sites are well-established and have a relatively stable fan base.

New betting sites in 2018 have an advantage though by being able to offer punters:

  • New Bonuses and Free bets.
  • Latest Software and Technology.
  • A new skin (look and layout).
  • Promotions that you may not find elsewhere.

The Old Days of Online Bookmakers

In the past if anyone wanted to set up a new bookmaker company in the UK, they had to start with one betting shop. They would then slowly expand throughout the country. Often large companies that had large market share were established as a result of a merger between two or more companies that controlled smaller fractions of the overall market.

It usually took many years and even decades before a small local bookmaker could grow to become one of the leading operators in the country. Everything was slower back in the days.

Online Betting on the Rise

When people started making reliable and safe payments over the internet, some entrepreneurial minded and innovative people realised that placing sports bets over the internet is also possible. As a result the first online betting sites were established. Most of the already established and popular bookmakers went online. However some new players appeared on the market as well.

The studies and surveys conducted by the UK Gambling Commission, and numerous other relevant bodies and organisations, show that online gambling is becoming increasingly popular over the years and that many operators now receive most of their incomes online. With the increased growth of the mobile betting market, we can expect that trend to continue in the future.

There’s Room for Old and New Betting Sites

Since there are a lot of customers and the industry is growing, it is only logical that many companies would want to invest and enter the market, hoping that they will manage to attract a significant number of customers. Since a person can have accounts at as many betting sites as they like, new operators establish betting sites in an attempt to attract both people who haven’t been wagering online, but also those who already have accounts at existing betting sites.

There’s nothing wrong with choosing from the new betting sites and registering an account at them. In fact, new betting sites can often offer more favourable odds, new types of bets and lucrative promotions in order to attract new customers. That is the main reasons why some punters decide to overlook the years of experience behind one operator and opt for a one that has been established recently.

Experience surely is one of the signs that indicate whether an operator is reliable or not, but it is not the only sign. New betting sites, even if they went online yesterday can satisfy all the necessary criteria and provide everything that a punter should expect from a bookmaker site.

Licencing and Regulation of New Betting Sites

First and foremost, all new betting sites should obtain an appropriate licence that will allow it to start offering services and take payments from punters. In the UK, the UK Gambling Commission is the body that is in charge of licencing and regulating online betting operators. Sites registered by companies who are based in the UK, as well as websites that are owned and operated by companies that are located elsewhere have the right to apply for a licence. Companies that are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission usually display the Commission’s logo on their website. This is so that UK punters can be certain that the website is legitimate.

Online Bookmakers Safety and Security

When a website is licensed by the UKGC it means that the Commission will pay attention to its work and ensure that the operator works in accordance with UK rules and regulations. Operators that are licensed and operate in accordance with the law will not try to abuse your personal or financial information nor will they share it with third parties.

Betting through a website involves providing personal details such as, name, address, phone number, email and age. As well as this banking details such as credit card number and/or bank account number are required. If someone manages to interfere in the connection between your computer/mobile device and the operator’s servers, they will obtain valuable information and possibly misuse them, steal money from your account, etc.

That is why it is essential that betting operators provide adequate degree of protection. Thus ensuring that your data will be kept safely and nobody else will have access to it. Websites usually employ advanced encryption technology. This software makes the data incomprehensible to any possible intruder who might be trying to access it.

Covered Sports, Markets and Odds

The reason why punters register at new betting sites is, of course, because they want to place bets. That’s why it is very important to see what each of the new betting sites has to offer so you can compare features. In terms of the number of available sports, leagues and events, but also betting markets and odds.

If you follow only one or two sports and intend on betting on just those sports, then it is sufficient to check if the website features them. If the sport in case is popular, then you shouldn’t worry. But if your interests are more diverse, then you would prefer a website that includes a large number of sports in their betting offer.

The events of each sport that are featured, the markets and the available bet types can make a difference. This is especially true if you’re one of those punters who wants to bet on more unusual selections. An example of this would be whether there’ll be a red a card during a match. Whether there’ll be a goal in the first 15 minutes.

Choosing the Best Betting Odds

The betting odds are the most important part of the betting offer. The higher the odds, the more money you’re going to earn if your bet wins. When you’re betting larger amounts of money even a small difference in the odds can mean a lot. If one betting site offers better odds than another, in general for most selections, than the first is probably a better option, but things usually aren’t that clear. Site 1 may offer significantly better odds for a particular selection than Site 2, but slightly lower odds for a number of other selections and vice-versa. Sometimes it is best to pick the bet that you’d like to place. Then you can see which of the new betting sites offer the best odds on that bet.

New Online Bookmaker Bonus Offers

New betting sites have to be innovative in their attempts to attract customers and offering bonuses and special promotions is one of the most effective ways to convince punters to register an account and start wagering. Most operators are focused on attracting new punters and that’s why their main bonuses and most promoted ones are the bonuses that are aimed at new customers, but most sites also offer bonuses and promotions that can be claimed by holders of existing accounts.

When you’re thinking of claiming an online bonus always check the ‘small print’. The full terms and conditions, especially the provisions regarding withdrawal of bonus winnings. The time frame during which you can use the bonus amount and fulfil the winnings withdrawal conditions.

Banking and Support

Banking options for New Betting sites in 2018

Banking: When it comes to funding your account, most new betting sites accept several options. The banking options are always clearly displayed on the website usually in the footer. In addition to the number of available payment methods, it is also important as to whether punters can make deposits and withdrawals without any extra fees or commissions. Also what the minimum/maximum amount that a punter can deposit/withdraw. Most minimum deposit amounts start at around £10/$10 for credit or debit cards. The maximum deposit amounts new betting sites will accept is usually around £5,000 or $5,000. This could be more depending on the sites own terms and method of payment you are using.

At the least you would expect the new betting sites in 2018 to be accepting the following payment methods for depositing and withdrawing.

Banking Methods:

  • Mastercard
  • Visa
  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • PayPal – limited availability see these betting sites that do accept this type of banking

Customer Support: Communication between operators and customers is very important in order for new and existing players to retained. This is why the new bookmakers will ensure quality customer support. You will find live support available as standard on the new betting websites with any queries you have answered in real time and effectively. It's obviously in the best interests of the bookmaker to ensure you, as the customer are served with accurate and timely responses on any issue(s) you may have.

It is key to a quality new betting sites in 2018 that customer support is visible, professional and works. We have listed what support options you would expect to have available:

Support Options:

  • Live Chat
  • Email address and online email contact form.
  • Help and FAQ section
  • Complaints procedure.

Telephone Number for contact – not always visible/available for direct contact if bets aren't taken over the phone.

More Choice Means More Bonuses

The introduction of new online bookmakers for the UK betting market has to be a good thing in terms of choice for punters.

More competition means more bonuses to choose from, this can only aid a punters betting balance.

New bookmakers also mean the latest in software and innovation, again this a plus for a players betting strategy.

As more choice of betting markets come available it could give a player a more unique angle to make money. A partial Cash Out feature or a combining of bets into a multiple bet of your choice. A request for a type of bet not listed at the bookmaker means punters can choose their own bet and tweet the bet to the bookmaker for it to be priced up. All these features are new bookmaker innovations that have arisen recently.

The number one reason though has to be the increase in choice of sign up bonuses available. This in turn brings more free betting money the way of the punters' bookmaker balance.
