The Criteria we used determining the best and trusted bookmakers
Is the bookmaker legit?
There is no question that safety comes first. With so many sports gambling sites out there, it is important to know that not all can be trusted to pay out your winnings or even keep your sensitive information safe.
Therefore, you should never take risks with your hard earned cash on dodgy bookmakers. Why? Well, because betting for real money at a website that is not safe or secure could lead to all kinds of trouble.
- Is the website secure?
The betting website must start with HTTPS not just HTTP. HTTPS security is provided by an SSL certificate, which protects sensitive information entered into that site as it travels from the site to a server. Without an SSL certificate, that information is exposed and easily accessible by cybercriminals. That information could be you Personal details, banking details etc.
- Is the betting site licensed?
You have to make sure that the bookmaker is licenced by the local gaming board. That can be easily checked on the website footer
- Customer support – Is there phone support and live chat access?
Contact details must be clear, that may include email address, Cell Numbers and Live Chat Support
- Banking terms, withdrawal Limits, Withdrawal times –
