ack in the day, when you wanted to place a bet you would walk on down to your local sportsbook or even trek all the way across town to the casino, but now everything is different. We may not have hover cars and laser guns (or, sadly, sharks with laser guns stuck to their heads… although we do have sea bass) but we can definitely see that we’re living in the future because of our betting habits.
Wandering into the bookie’s office is a thing of the past. In fact, you don’t have to deal with a person at all! This not only helps the socially awkward of our generation but also lowers the risk of falling in with dodgy characters. There’s always the safety of knowing that when you bet online, you’ve got bank account information, and of course you’ve got the best odds rather than a dodgy character trying to push bad odds on you because you look a bit green. The fact that you’re a dot-com billionaire doesn’t even cross their minds because they’re stuck in the past!
So why is betting online the future? Not only is it incredibly convenient, it’s incredibly safe and far more fun. When was the last time your local bookie gave you a bonus just for hanging out with him? Online sportsbooks have impressive loyalty programs that reward you for betting with them, making the local bookies pale in comparison to even the most mediocre online betting sites. From football to boxing, to even playing online casino games from your mobile, betting online is certainly the move of the future because we’re well into the digital age. Maybe the next generation won’t even know what a real bookie looks like!
