One major part of matched betting is having accounts at multiple online bookmakers. The more accounts you have, the more betting offer you can take advantage of and theoretically, the more profit you can make. The majority of online bookies also have casino sections which have their own welcome offer and daily offers where customers can take advantage of free spins, bonuses, cashback and more. Having access to multiple online casinos with the bookmaker accounts you already hold is a convenient way of taking advantage of some of these potentially profitable offers.
As well as sports betting and casino sections, some bookmakers also provide customers with a platform to play online poker. Online poker became extremely popular at the turn of the century with dedicated poker sites such as Pokerstars and FullTilt Poker attracting millions of customers in a relatively short space of time. Fast forward 20 years and now many bookies are offering this option.
Although there are offers and promotions available when playing online poker, they don’t work in the same way as free sports bets and casino bonuses do and so although some may be great value, it’s hard to put an EV on them due to the value mainly being in the standard of the player. However, many of us enjoy playing poker whether it be for micro-stakes or on high-roller tables. One attraction to online poker is that you’re able to have the chance to win entry into poker tournaments which have huge prizes for a relatively minimal entry fee.
