What characterises a high quality new betting site in 2017?
In our search for the best new betting sites we have sifted through the many up-and-coming online bookmakers. Here are the factors we took into account when choosing the best of the bunch.
Good mobile sites and betting apps
Nowadays we all expect to have things available in a convenient manner on our smart phones. There’s no reason why your betting interest should be confined to your home laptop or desktop PC. With a high quality mobile site or betting app, you can play whenever you like, wherever you are. That’s why this is the first criterion on our list.
Good betting experience
The best betting sites are the ones who truly know the gambling world inside and out. A new betting site must have experienced players and providers among its staff so that it can get the basics right. After that, the field is open for innovation and new ideas.
Innovative new technology
Aside from a high quality and fast-loading website, a great betting site may also provide you with its own software so that you don’t have to do everything through your browser. You can often judge the success of a new online bookie according to the amount they invest in their technology.
Good welcome offers with clear terms and conditions
Nobody wants to switch to a new bookmaker unless there’s a good reason. That’s why all bookmakers have welcome promotions, and the competition for the most enticing offer is fierce. If you are considering making the switch to a new bookmaker, you must decide what the best offer is according to your needs, but it is a given that the welcome offer should be explained in plain English, without any nasty surprises to catch you out.
What are the trends among new betting sites 2017 and beyond?
Mobile betting is one of the strongest new trends that are continuing in 2017. Where once it was necessary to place a bet on your PC, the convenience of betting has increased exponentially, to the point where you can even be a spectator at a game and place a live bet on the outcome without leaving your seat. Online bookies are now racing to offer the best mobile services and competition for effective app development is fierce.
Future trends may include the integration of betting services into social media and even the possibility to add a social aspect into your play. With the growth of virtual reality and the various devices coming onto the market, it’s clear that virtual betting will become a feasible possibility in the near future.
What are the differences between an established betting site and a new betting site?
Although the traditional and long-established betting sites have made an impressive transition to offering their services online, they can also be limited and somewhat old-fashioned in terms of their approach.
Young companies are often more flexible and may bring fresh ideas and an innovative approach to online betting. With a company structure and business model created especially for the online world, they often manage to sneak by their older competitors and grab part of the market with innovative technology or exciting promotions.
