Sports betting is a gambling activity intended for a wide audience. According to the current Russian legislation, any capable citizen who has reached the age of 18 can be registered in a bookmaker’s office . In today’s article, we will explain what the goal of sports betting is.
The first steps
The main and the sole purpose of sports betting is earning money. It consists in the fact that the client deposits funds to the personal account of the bookmaker’s office, and then makes a bet. This is a very difficult and risky path. The bookmaker makes money on the losses of its clients – this is its fundamental principle. Sports betting is like business, no one knows what can happen or how a sports event will end. The bookmaker offers quotes, and we decide to bet or not. If the bookmaker suffered financial losses, then this business would have stopped long ago. Therefore, the bookmaker constantly earns on the millions of its clients. Currently, more and more licensed bookmakers appear with one goal – to earn money.
Why is it hard to win?
The main feature of sports betting is psychological and emotional components . When we start placing bets and winning, we are drawn into the process of making easy money. And I want more and more. The mind becomes clouded and the process begins: “You need to bet, no matter what.” If we lose, then we want to win back and at one fine moment we lose more and more money.
To prevent this from happening, you need to control your emotions and have a clear plan . Before placing a bet, you need to answer the question “What will I do if I lose?” If you know the answer to this question, then you can bet, and if not, then it is strictly forbidden to make a bet. In this world there is no such thing: “I will just bet 500 rubles, I will win, it means I will win, I will lose, it means I will lose.”
There should always be a plan and an amount allocated for the gameplay. Better to walk in small steps than trying to jump for millions. It is important to remember that you need to have a cool head in this business.
Types of goals and how not to fall into the trap?
The game bank is the amount of money allocated for betting. Each player has a different bank, but based on it, you need to set a clear goal.
The goal could be:
- Short-term – making money in a short period of time (from 3 to 7 gaming days);
- Medium – term – making a profit in a not very long period of time (from 2 weeks to six months);
- Long-term – making money at a distance (from six months to a year or a season).
After choosing the type of goal and establishing the game bank, the player needs to determine for himself what he wants to get at the end. (We chose a short-term goal. Bank 1000 rubles, total = double the bank). The goal is clear, achievable, and has its own period of validity. Next, you need to decide what to do if the bank is lost. We must always have a backup option, since the athletes do not owe us anything, we need to learn to adapt to the circumstances: loss, injury, postponement of games, poor starting lineup, etc.
If you managed to select all the components of the goal, and also managed to decide on a fallback option, then you can start choosing the sports and bookmaker quotes on which we will bet. In your plan, you need to include the circumstances and commands on which we will bet. Next, you need to determine the minimum and maximum bet amount, select the odds at which the bet can be made. Departure from the plan is strictly prohibited.
Only by observing all the conditions can a positive result be achieved and not fall face down in the mud. With all this, you constantly need to look for new teams and events, add them to the plan in a systematic and strictly established order.
What can the rates compare to?
The bets are similar to the relationship between a man and a woman. A man courting a woman to please. The bookmaker offers various goodies to lure the player into the process. The man protects the woman. The bookmaker looks at the client’s statistics and offers new improved conditions for keeping him in the game, for example, free bets or bonuses .
In relationships, there are difficulties, quarrels, misunderstandings. Also in the rates. There is a black streak of lesions. At this point, the main thing is not to break down and follow a clearly established plan. After all, if one of the partners offends the other with words, then nothing can be changed, the word is not a sparrow. Here is the same situation. You can freak out and start betting on everything, lose, but then the money will not be returned.
