Betting in bookmakers can be made in two modes: the first is called “pre-match” – this is when a bet is made before the start of a sporting event. The second one is called “live” – this is when a bet is made right during a sporting event. This is what is called live betting.
Every year live sports betting is gaining more and more popularity, thanks in part to the development of technology and the spread of mobile Internet. This type of online betting attracts players for several reasons. Firstly, it allows you to feel your kind of involvement in the event, and secondly, it adds emotions when watching the match, and thirdly, in this case, you won’t have to wait long for your bet to be calculated: sports results become known as quickly as possible, directly during the game. It is believed that one of the reasons for the popularity of live bets is the higher probability of a correct prediction since in this case, you can watch the play of teams/athletes in real-time, which allows you to more accurately analyze their current state and take this into account in your forecast.
Live bets cover the time period from the start to the end of the match. For a novice player, betting is something incomprehensible, let alone live. Before betting spontaneously, there is a lot to learn: different sports, how long a half lasts, a period, a game, how the odds change. The ideal option is to watch the broadcasts while betting to understand the nature of the game. The ability to correctly assess what is happening on the field/court during the match can give the player an additional advantage over the bookmaker, which will not be given by bets in the “pre-match” mode.
