The Evolution of Sports Betting
Sports betting has come a long way and grown in popularity, and the Internet is largely to thank for this. Gone are the days when punters had to head to a local betting shop, study form and place their wagers based on what little information they could gather.
These days, sports betting is as simple as going online, placing a wager and waiting to see whether you are a winner. Add to this the fact that a wealth of information is always available at your fingertips and that checking form, stats and every other factor that may influence the outcome of a race or game is incredibly easy, its clear to see why betting online has such a huge fan base.
Intertops was integral to taking sports betting online, and in 1996 they launched the first ever online sports book. Unfortunately the lack of public access to the Internet meant that they didn’t gather a huge following at first. Over the years as access to the World Wide Web become more readily available, online betting grew in popularity. More betting sites were established and a great number of markets were added.
Online sport betting is now a massive industry and there are so many different betting options available. You can wager on just about anything, and local and international markets offer plenty of different options. Mobile betting has also made wagering on sports and current events so much simpler, and these days anyone can place a wager at any time.
The future of sports betting looks good, and now is the perfect time to get in on the action!
