What makes a good gambling site?

There are many criteria for the best gambling sites. People all have their own different requirements from gambling websites, but there are certain areas where all the gambling sites are trying to outdo each other.


  • Markets: There should be a wide choice of markets. From the Serie A title race to the Champions League, through to betting on the lower leagues, and different markets ranging from top scorers to who is going to win the league this season. The more markets there are, the more likely it is that you will find what you want to gamble on.
  • Competitive pricing: You will want to find the best odds for the markets that you want to gamble on.
  • Promotions: It is a good idea to look at what promotions are on offer before signing up, as a lot of the biggest and best gambling sites will provide you with a signup offer, which could boost the money you have to gamble with or match your deposit in free bets.
  • Loyalty bonuses: Similarly, a lot of sites such as Paddy Power offer loyalty bonuses, which means that you have the chance to get free bets and rewards for gambling regularly with them.
  • Ease of use: Do you want to gamble on your laptop, or on an app? Both should be simple and straightforward. Good gambling sites tend to have a really good app and mobile site so you can place your bets with ease from anywhere.
