Given the number of sports that exist nowadays as well as the fact that there are numerous bookmakers to choose from, sports betting can appear a bit intimidating for a beginner. Now that the sports event of the year, the World Cup 2014 in Brazil, is approaching fast, besides the plethora of options available, people new to betting are also perplexed by the abundance of strategies various gamblers are currently using successful, at least according to them. First off, it is necessary to mention that similar to casino games, there is no one-size-fits-all strategy in sports betting. Therefore, be wary of the paid guides that advertise their products as 100% strategies you can rely on. In addition, if you want to make some extra cash and enjoy this activity, you should also consider:
1. Taking advantage of the promotions
These days, almost all bookmakers offer a free bet or a free voucher worth up to $50 for bettors who make a first time deposit. While it may not seem like much at first, it is necessary to point out that this is an easy way to earn some extra cash when placing your first bet. For example, if you deposit a minimum sum of $25 dollars and receive the bonus, then you will have double that amount to play with. In addition to this common bonus, many bookies also run internal promotions regularly especially during important sport events.
