What is Live Betting
In simple terms live betting enables the punter to place a bet during an actual game or event as opposed to traditional betting whereby a bet is placed prior to the start.
This in-play betting allows for a much more engaging and exciting experience as you can read the game as its being played to make a call on how its going to finish up.
In the UK Live betting is already 50% of betting turnover for most online Bookmakers and Sportsbooks with majority being bet on Football and Tennis. The good news for the Aussie punter is that several online bookies here are now also offering In-play betting so you can get on board and give it a go.
Live Betting – In Play versus In Running Betting?
To get you up to speed on the terminology In-play typically refers to betting during sporting games like AFL, Soccer, Rugby, Cricket or Tennis. In-running betting is the Horse Racing equivalent and has actually shown some popularity on recent Melbourne Cup events.
