Online Cricket Betting

Filed under: — admin @ 12:22 pm

There haven’t been a lot of changes in the game of cricket itself for many years but the experience of being a cricket fan has rapidly evolved over the last few years. More and more matches are televised and dedicated websites and forums let fans connect and discuss their favorite players and teams; live cricket streaming video is also widely available online, as well as iPhone apps and other tools that let fans check scores and access stats no matter where they are in the world.

While online cricket betting reaches a fever pitch when the World Cup is underway, it’s still a popular offering at many online sportsbooks on a daily basis, with a variety of wagers available. Like most sports, you have the option of betting on the winner of individual matches as well as bets specific to cricket such as Most Match Sixes, Next Dismissal, Innings Runs, Session Runs, Dismissal Method, and Next Over Runs. Most online sportsbooks also let you pair various bets together into parlays that can multiply your potential payout even more.

Most cricket fans also enjoy other sports, and sportsbooks are more than happy to cater to that as well, offering online casino games such as blackjack, slots, and roulette, as well as some of the top real money poker sites. It’s a very natural fit to get some cricket bets in and then kick back as you enjoy watching the matches, playing a few hands of blackjack or sitting down at a poker cash game or tournament. Many poker regulars actually got their starts as sportsbettors, trying out the poker tables on a whim but discovering a true love for the game.

If you haven’t yet signed up at a sportsbook, it pays to do some research before selecting a site; just like US poker sites some sportsbooks allow customers from certain countries while barring their doors to others, as they have to respect local laws in some countries that make it illegal for their citizens to gamble online. Different sportsbooks also offer different incentives and bonuses for players, so it can definitely pay to do some research first to ensure that you’ll be playing at a site that’s the best fit for you, wit offers and promos that appeal to you.
