Gone are the days when sports betting was looked down upon or remained confined to hidden establishments.
Over several years of reform, leading to the legalization of betting in many parts of the world, a new surge of opportunities have come to the forefront.
Online betting has become a trend, especially in sports with not just being used as a means of alternate income or fun activity but has grown on to a new business investment hub.
With the ban on betting lifted by the federal government in the U.S., sports enthusiasts and sports bookers have found common breeding ground.
The U.S. sports betting industry has risen to a market of approximately $10 billion of which $4 billion comes from online sports betting platforms. It’s why some competitors like Betway Thailand is popular around the world today.
Ideal business growth platform
Online sports betting has a major advantage over the traditional setups due to the lack of large infrastructural capital required for online betting.
As per a study by Zion Market Research, the global sports betting market is estimated to cross $155.49 billion by 2024.
Business units are leaving no stone unturned to reap the maximum benefits of the digital platform. As opposed to conventional casinos, the online platform has widespread reach beyond geographical boundaries touching the most remote areas.
Higher control over the outcomes
Since online sports betting platforms offer the wagers deep knowledge of the sport and past performance trends before putting in their money, wagers feel more secure with increased chances of winning.
The freedom of not being influenced by a booker looking for personal gains has managed to attract large funds into the pool from individuals as well as business organizations.
Moreover, an added advantage of regular discounts and offers such as referral points/credit largely influence buyer behavior. These marketing strategies act as baits to further the business prospects and profitability of the online sports betting industry.
Increased government revenue
Several studies conducted on the economic impact of betting have proven a substantial increase in the overall economic condition of a nation; hence, further contributing to the government revenue through taxes. Certain costs are involved in the regulation of betting allowed within a nation, but these costs are usually outnumbered by the revenue generated through betting.
As digitization is an inseparable part of human existence, online sports betting is the future of sports betting, and those who make the first move now will definitely be it an advantage.
Which Betting Platform Should You Go For?
Among the more popular options remain Betway, which is present in many different countries of the world. Some of the other top contenders include DraftKings, Sportsbook and ZenSports – all online sporting platforms that are making most of the first-mover advantage.
They have managed to overpower the physical betting setups in the U.S. and with increased brand recognition may be able to completely overthrow the existing market players if they do not make a transition towards the online sports betting platform.
