The bookies make placing a bet nice and easy! (credit:Credit by bettingpro)

Find out why placing an online bet is easy and simple 

Online betting is all the rage these days, with more people using their PC, laptop, tablet or mobile device to place a bet rather than the old-fashioned method of paying a visit to a betting shop.

If you’re looking to enjoy the masses of customers betting online, here is a simple guide when it comes to placing a bet on your computer and the great news is that most bookies will throw in a free bet or two when you first register an account.

Choose a bookmaker
Firstly, you need to select a bookmaker! We recommend any of the below operators when it comes to placing an online bet:


As mentioned, when you register an account with any of the above bookmakers, you will be offered the chance to claim a free bet. For example, bet365 will match your first deposit with a free bet up to £200 so we recommend you take advantage of any offers that come your way!

Make a deposit 
There are several ways to deposit money into your online betting account, with the most popular options listed below:

  1. Credit / debit card
  2. Neteller
  3. Skrill (Moneybookers)
  4. PayPal

Find your bet
Naturally, our bookmaker friends try and make it easy for you to find your selection. So it’s a case of choosing the correct sport from a left-hand menu and then finding the correct betting market by clicking through the options. Alternatively, there might be a search facility to find a particular bet or you might even see your selection on the homepage.

Place your bet
You’ve registered the account, you’ve made a deposit and you’ve found your bet. Now it’s time for that all-important placing of the bet!

Click on your selection and it should populate the online betting slip at the bookmaker website. You can then decide how much money you would like to place on the selection, along with whether you want to bet on the selection to win or each-way (if applicable).

Some bookmaker websites will offer you the chance to check your bet before going on to confirm the selection. Once your bet has gone through, there is the option of clicking on ‘My Account’ or ‘My Bets’ to review your selection.
