Licenses Owned.

Tried and trusted

Do your homework on a sportsbook betting app before signing up. Make sure the site is legal and regulated. Read reviews and contact customer services if you cannot find the answers to your questions. Any legal site will display their license number on the homepage so you shouldn’t have to go looking for any important info.

Secure login details

When creating an account with an online betting site you will be asked to create a username and password. This should be something memorable to you as you will be asked to input these details each time you want to access the app. You should also ensure they are both secure and private. This is data that shouldn’t be too obvious to safeguard it against cyberattacks.

Know your limits

In the frenzied excitement of online betting, it’s easy for some to get carried away. It’s important not to do this as it could end up costing you a lot more cash than you planned to bet. Never gamble when feeling angry or frustrated and never chase your losses.

Set out an amount you are comfortable spending on gambling every day, week or month then stick hard to it. If you win more than you can change your limits to bet with profits but it’s a good idea to never pass your limits for stakes.
