Everything You Need to Know




  What is an online bookie?

An online bookie is just the same as a brick and mortar bookie. The advantages of an online bookie are better odds because there's less overheads. On the other hand with an online bookie, you may have to wait a few days to receive your winnings. Each has their own distinct benefits.

However it's up to the operator themselves whether they give customer money basic, medium or high protection. Obviously, your money is most safest in accounts with high protection, so check the fine print of the bookie that you use. It's rare that bookmakers go out of business, but it does happen, so make sure you're fully aware by reading the terms and conditions.
