Times certainly have changed for those of us who love the time – honored tradition of sports betting.
Back in the days before online sports betting (good or bad old days — feel free to decide based on your own personal experience), there were only two options for sports betting:
- find yourself a bookie, legal or…otherwise…or
- get into a more informal wager with friends, co – workers, or congenial acquaintances at the regular watering hole.
Oh, and let us not forget the clucking of tongues and rolling of eyes from the more high – minded individuals. The usual free lectures and sermons of the evils of gambling from those who could not or would not see the fun, the tradition, the thrill. I mean to say that for as long as man has had money and people have had differences of opinion about the outcome of one event or another, there has been betting… That is a long, long time…
I suppose such things only added to the experience; after all, there’s something to be said for belonging to a club, with a shared purpose and feeling that nobody else outside your circle quite understands. Luckily, the online gambling scene has only added speed and scope to that free exchange of fellowship and information.
As you can probably tell, I’m quite excited by the new landscape. Or should I say “webscape”? The online gambling games experience has opened many door and eyes, whether you’re a horsetrack expert, a poker mediocre, or a free no download slots sort of player.
For those of us who did not quite make it to the major leagues, this is our intimate involvement in the sports that we love; we are not simply spectators, we are participants. Our brains are challenged, our deepest emotions are stirred, and our bank accounts often affected (it just wouldn’t be the same if it were free, after all)…in a very real way, the only real difference between ourselves and the players and managers is the scale of our involvement.
Well, I’d best bring myself down to earth before I become too philosophical (another somewhat common habit that I’ve indulged and witnessed in that neighborhood watering hole). What I’d like to do with this site is briefly — but thoroughly — touch upon the various ins and outs, the tips and tricks, the fundamental experience of sports betting online. Along the way, I’ll try to give you a sense of the best practices to keep in mind when pursuing the online gambling urge , as well as my own personal recommendations for the best sports books to go to experience the very best, the creme of the sports betting crop. And it’s all for free!
