Betting on Everything but Sport
Coronavirus has changed the world as we know it. Sports betting has ground to a halt on just about all fronts. However, that shouldn't stop gamblers with time on their hands betting on something.
I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea, but virtual horse racing will probably become more popular for punters who need to bet on a race even if it is in the virtual world. I can't say it has ever been on my radar and I have made a joke of the idea of betting on this platform but it is an option.
It will be interesting to see if there will be more programs coming into play such as virtual football. I guess you could support Liverpool FC the Virtual Team.
Bookmakers will be looking for alternatives to give incentives and that's why casino play, poker, and slots will be of interest. There will be no change there.
Lotteries have always been a main staple for the everyday gambler and it's likely the prizes for these will be higher than average.
Bingo is very popular and will continue for those to be part of the online community.
As with all gambling, I would advise you don't bet for fun and if you have never gambled before, it is best you carry on with your abstinence. If you like a little bet to pass the time then please stick to betting in a responsible manner and set a daily, weekly or monthly limit.
Keep safe and don't lose your short.
