4 Tips From Sports Page Gaming About Safe and Effective Gambling

For millions of Americans, sports betting serves as a fun and exciting pastime. Experts will tell you that the expansion of sports gaming and wagering across the United States has boosted interest in sports.

Sports Page Gaming loves helping our customers enjoy a relaxing and fun atmosphere in which to place their wagers. On the other hand, we want all of our patrons to enjoy sports betting safely. No one should find themselves in a predicament over sports betting.

For that reason, we have provided four important tips to keep your sports betting experience fun and exciting. 

Set A Budget Before Gaming

Before going to the wagering establishment, think of an amount that you can comfortably afford to lose. If your optimism rises to dangerous levels, then reduce that number by 10 to 25 percent. 

Budgeting should be a routine part of any entertainment spending. Gambling presents additional challenges to discipline and common sense, however. 

We recommend that you adopt a strong strategy to stay within budget. This includes bringing cash only and leaving your debit or credit card at home. 

Employ a Staking Plan

Very close to the idea of budgeting lies the idea of putting together a staking plan.  Depending on your wagering habits, you may find one or more staking plans can form a vital part of your wagering strategy. They also put wagering on a systematic and planned basis, helping you to reduce losses during a rough patch.

Staking plans are more specific than budgeting. The fixed bet plan, for instance, keeps you at a low or moderate dollar amount per bet. Regardless of the situation, you never go over the set limit.

Others follow a bankroll percentage plan, which is similar to the fixed wager. The difference is that you might limit yourself to, for example, 20 percent of your day’s wagering budget as opposed to a $20 limit.

Others go for more excitement and simply place their entire day’s budget on a single wager. While this could end the day quickly, it could also result in larger payouts. More risk, more reward.

Having a plan can reduce stress and anxiety over lost bets. It can also help to prevent you from overextending yourself trying to win back money that you need elsewhere.

Select Your Bets Carefully

We advise our customers to choose wisely when placing sports bets. Stick with sports and teams with which you have more knowledge and familiarity.  Experts also often advise bettors to resist the temptation to just follow the public or conventional wisdom. 

Whatever your strategy, pick your bets carefully. 

Avoid Illegitimate Sportsbooks

Most importantly, you should only deal with established sportsbooks trusted by the public. Establishments like Sports Page Gaming adhere strictly to state and federal laws, as well as industry ethics. We take customer service seriously and want to ensure that all enjoy safe and reliable betting.

Illegitimate sportsbooks may present some or all of the following problems either in brick and mortar establishments or online:

  • Delayed payouts on winnings that can extend to over 45 days
  • Inadequate or absent customer service
  • Cancelling or not giving credit to legitimately won bets
  • Outright theft of your money
  • When betting online, your device gets infected with malware

Many online sportsbooks operate outside of the United States and are not subject to federal law. These can serve as fronts for criminal organizations bent on fraud.

Sports Page Gaming is run by fellow members of our community. As good business citizens, we strive daily to provide great customer service and a respectable and reliable wagering atmosphere.
