4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Which betting type gives you the most payout? on: September 30, 2019, 03:04:39 AM

Sports betting is broader than most beginners think. It takes many forms. It’s not limited to placing your bet on who you think will win between two teams or players in a match. Sometimes, it gets challenging when odds or point spreads get in the way.

There are various bet types you can choose from when placing wagers on sporting events. But which of these earn you the most money?

  • Straight bet
  • Money line bet
  • Total line bet
  • Parlay bet
  • Head-to-head bet

If you do not know these betting types much, here's an article to help you understand them better: https://www.bitcoinsportsbetting.co.uk/news/most-common-types-of-sports-bets/

6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Solheim Cup 2019 | Golf Betting Odds on: September 10, 2019, 05:05:40 AM

The best female golfers from the USA and Europe will go head-to-head starting September 13th to 15th, 2019 at the Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course in Scotland. Will Team USA win for the third consecutive time since 2015? Or will Team Europe prove the sportsbook predictions wrong?

On average, USA’s chance of winning is at -175 odds, way bigger than Europe’s +175. This means that in order for a player to win $100 on a USA bet, he has to wager $175. Meanwhile, a bet of $100 on Europe wins a player $175.

13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Pacquiao Now Stands as Favorite vs Thurman — Sportsbooks on: June 13, 2019, 05:52:25 AM
I UPDATED THE TITLE FROM "PACQUIAO STANDS AS UNDERDOG VS THURMAN" TO "PACQUIAO NOW STANDS AS FAVORITE VS THURMAN" BECAUSE THE RECENT ODDS ON ONLINE SPORTSBOOKS NOW SHOW A SURGE IN PACQUIAO'S ODDS OF WINNING AGAINST THURMAN, THUS THE TURNING OF THE TABLES.

Manny Pacquiao is now 40 years old, 10 years older than his opponent. He's past his prime years. His attention is so much divided, esp. now that he's very much needed in the Philippine senate (yes, he's a senator in his country), as the midterm senatorial elections have just concluded.

Thurman, on the other hand is young and undefeated. He's very hard on training with so much focus just on boxing. These were the main reasons Thurman was favored by online sportsbooks. But things have already changed. Pacquiao is now the favorite.

Interesting read: Pacquiao Stands as Underdog vs Thurman

14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Slot comparison: Mechanical Orange VS Perfect Gems (both released May 30, 2019) on: May 30, 2019, 05:45:39 AM
Both online slot games are for official release today, May 30, 2019. But which slot fares better? You can judge by playing them both for free.



Here are the demo games:
BGaming's MECHANICAL ORANGE demo game
Play'n GO's PERFECT GEMS demo game

This is just a question for fun, especially if you love playing slots.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Common sports betting types on: May 29, 2019, 08:59:44 AM
At first, I thought sports betting was all just betting on which team the punter thinks will win the match. To my slight surprise, sports betting is a lot broader than just that, especially when odds and point spreads and lines now get in the way.



Now I find it important that beginners know first at least the most common types of sports bets so that they can maximize their sports betting experience.
Here are the most common types:
1. Straight bet
2. Money line bet
3. Total line bet
4. Parlay bet
5. Head-to-head bet

16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Preakness Stakes 2019 in the absence of Kentucky Derby top 3 finishers on: May 17, 2019, 08:23:57 AM
For the first time in almost 70 years, not one of the top three finishers of the recently concluded Kentucky Derby will race in the Preakness Stakes.
(Source: KENTUCKY DERBY TOP 3 FINISHERS TO NOT RACE IN THE PREAKNESS)

Obviously, the odds have changed and so did the betting lines. Any betting tips or any picks you can pitch here for those who were planning before to root for the Derby top 3 (Country House, Code of Honor, and Tacitus)?
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / UKGC-licensed casinos now stricter in verifying players' age & identity on: May 10, 2019, 08:50:41 AM
Beginning May 7, 2019, all the affected gaming operators should not allow any player to make deposits and play betting games without completing the process of verifying his/her name, age, and address. With this, the three-day grace period given before to new players signing up no longer applies.

The laying down of this stricter rule is part of the commission’s goal to get children out of the gambling sphere. In a report by UKGC, it was found out that the number of children with gambling-linked issues quadrupled in the past two years. Now, there are more or less 55,000 children aged 11 to 16 recorded with compulsive gambling issues.

Source: UK GAMBLING COMMISSION IMPLEMENTS STRICTER IDENTITY VERIFICATION RULE


All online casinos licensed by the UKGC implement the KYC rule, now even stricter. Any thoughts on the changes made by the commission to the age & identity verification process?
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Japan as the Next Big Destination for iGaming Operators? on: May 10, 2019, 02:45:18 AM
Just last year in 2018, Japan managed to clear the legal hurdles to obtain their Integrated Resort (IR) which is a nomenclature for casino resorts.

The Integrated Resort project refers to a comprehensive entertainment complex that incorporates facilities like shopping malls, theaters, hotels and theme parks. These types of resorts should be ready and developed by 2025 also thanks to the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

 In addition to being a potential hot spot for casinos, Japan is also a very attractive destination for international visitors. Based on the reports from Japan’s National Tourism Organization, Japan welcomed nearly 16 million visitors in the first half of 2018, which is up 16% from last year!

Given the importance of the region, there will be a Japan Gaming Congress being held on May 16-17, 2019 at the Conrad Tokyo in Japan.

Source: Is Japan the Next Big Hot Spot Destination for iGaming Operators?


Is there anyone among you from Japan? Can you tell us about the situation of the gambling industry in the country as of the present? Or perhaps can you tell us if you agree with the idea that Japan is set to become a big hot spot iGaming destination?

20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Reasons Crypto Players Skip Casinos with KYC on: April 26, 2019, 10:20:02 AM
(SINCE THE TOPIC HAS BEEN ACTIVE HERE ON BITCOINTALK FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW, I DECIDED TO CREATE AN INFOGRAPHIC ABOUT IT. AND NOW IN THIS UPDATED POST, YOU WILL SEE I ALREADY ATTACHED BELOW THE INFOGRAPHIC FOR EVERYONE'S EASY READING)

“Know your customer,” “know your client,” or simply KYC is a procedure carried out by a business to verify the identity of its potential and existing customers. This is done to avoid putting the business at risk of being used by fraudulent individuals for illegal activities like money-laundering.

Additionally, the procedure is one way of protecting the interest of the customers, usually in case of loss of account or fund forfeiture.
In the online betting industry, all the reputable casinos you know do the KYC in compliance with the gaming-related laws within the jurisdictions they target. They are required to get their players’ personal information like name, age, address, and sometimes banking details. They even ask the players to present copies of their valid IDs just to ensure there will be no fraud.

While some cryptocurrency players find KYC beneficial and well-intentioned, others see it as a menace to online betting. Here's an infographic summarizing why:
