Sportsbook Action

If you like to place bets or wager on sports, there are major websites that welcome members to engage in sports booking a/k/a sports betting. Sportsbook sites are generally not based in the USA. However, the major sites have good reputations and welcome American members to join. When online poker went bust in the USA due to overarching legal issues, many online poker players turned to sports booking as an alternative to employ skills, tactics and strategies utilized in online casino gaming. Sports booking and fantasy team play have also filled in the gap in creating the online camaraderie and adversary which online casino poker players enjoyed at sites such as Full Tilt, Poker Stars, etc.

Members of sports betting sites create accounts to join, then upload funds via different methods to convert these funds to dollars or the currency of their country to place bets and wagers. These sportsbookers have sophisticated software to power their sites along with payment processors and security systems in place. Member experience is exciting and seamless. If you’ve been thinking about joining a sports book site, I’ve been using Bovada to place bets on MMA, boxing, rugby, soccer and NFL games. With Bovada, I had to first obtain a Netspend Visa card in order to upload funds. Many traditional Visa and MasterCard merchant banks will not allow funds to be uploaded to sports betting sites due to the risk of chargebacks. A Netspend Visa is a prepaid Visa you can load at many convenient locations like 7-11’s and major supermarkets. This is an honest opinion from a real Bovada user and Netspend Visa holder!
