Okay so now you have selected a sportsbook, signed up for an
account, and have money available to start betting, what’s
next? Well clearly it is time to start placing your wagers. Again some books may give free payouts for only
certain withdrawal methods while others may offer free payouts
via all methods. This avoids
any misplaced bets or mistakes you may have made. We must warn you though; these days there are
plenty of sportsbook review sites on the Internet. Stick with neteller or a
cashiers check as again these are the easiest and quickest ways
of getting your funds.
After a couple emails from readers who were contemplating offshore
betting we decided to write this piece. The most common ways to
deposit are bank wire, western union, visa, mastercard, and
money transfer through online companies like neteller, and moneybookers. If you don’t know which books are quality,
well run businesses, we do have a sportsbooks
section which lists some of the superior offshore sports
betting books we personally bet at daily.
After you have registered for an account, you are going to
need to deposit funds into the offshore betting account. After you
have verified your wager you will be able to hit the pending
wagers or open bets link and see all open wagers you currently
The first step is to choose a quality online sportsbook.
We thank you for taking the time to read our guide to betting
is recommended to record all your offshore betting transactions
in a log to track performance, betting trends, and any information
you may need to look back on someday. You always
want to stick with the big boys, books that have a good reputation,
excellent customer service, and that are rock solid financially. Different
books offer different deposit options so you will need to see
exactly which methods your book does offer.
Each sportsbook has an easy to use wagering menu. After reading this piece of literature you will be fully
prepared to start offshore internet betting.. You
transfer funds to your neteller, moneybookers, or firepay accounts
via your bank account and than use that money to deposit at
the sportsbook and start betting offshore. Much like paypal, (who no longer
accepts online gambling transfers) these 3 companies allow you
to send and receive money to online merchants instantly. This all depends on the sportsbook and you
should be able to view all their fees via the website. The bigger books are pretty
good at grading wagers within a half hour after the sporting
event has ended. This
is the most important piece of betting offshore. You can click on any of the links above to visit each
website and see which one you are most comfortable with. Most of these
websites are owned by sportsbooks or affiliates and the advice
or suggestions they provide should be deemed biased.
That pretty much sums up the offshore betting process in a nutshell. It is time to request
a payout. Quite frankly credit card deposits are becoming a
thing of the past since they always don’t go through and
the maximum deposit is usually pretty low.
Okay so you have picked a few more winners than losers and
would like to collect some of your winnings. There are over
1000 internet sportsbooks out there today, most of which are
low quality books that don’t deserve your action. This is not essential
but highly suggested by Maddux Sports.
If there is an offshore betting online portal you are considering
playing at, but isn’t reviewed or recommended by Maddux Sports,
you can check out a website called sportsbookreview.com
for a letter grade.
Just another reason why credit card depositing, should be a
last resort in terms of depositing. Signing up for either
one of the accounts is a simple task and takes just minutes
to do so. If
you don’t know which one to choose our personal preference is
Neteller. You will need
their name, city, country, and zip/postal code.
Lets face it after you win, you do want to get paid quickly
and hassle free. Some are quicker, some slower, just all depends
on the time of year, the sport the wager was placed on, how
busy they are, and how many graders the book has working. If you are not all that Internet savvy, most
books will allow you to call their 800 number and setup your
account over the phone. Most of the offshore betting parlors offer 1 free
payout a month. etc. The first
problem with credit card deposits is some banks have stopped
allowing deposits to offshore betting sites. They ask you for the pertinent
information, if you have ever made a purchase online it is the
same type of deal. It all depends
on the website and your issuing bank if a credit card deposit
will work. etc. They will remind
you to add your account number when you send the funds to speed
up the deposit process.
As much as credit card deposits are a thing of the past, money
transfer through neteller, and
moneybookers are the ideal
way to deposit these days. We are calling it “the
complete guidebook to betting offshore” and it has already
been recognized as one of the finest pieces of information on
the topic of offshore sports betting throughout the betting
community. If you still have any questions feel free to shoot us
an email and we can help you through the process the best we can.
Bank wire is pretty self explanatory; you transfer funds through
your bank account to the sportsbook to start betting.
After you have found the book that suits your betting needs,
you are going to need to sign up for an account. They are one of the few honest review sites
out there that doesn’t have an agenda or favoritism towards
certain books. Please
note if you deposited via credit card, it is mandatory for the
sportsbook to credit the full amount of the deposit back onto
your card before any other method can be used to receive money. This is a pretty
simple process; they will ask you for your name, address, to
create a password, etc. We have been using Neteller for a few years now and
in our opinion is the easiest and fastest way to send funds
to and from a sportsbook.
Once the game you bet on is over, you will be able to login
and see your new account balance. Each book is different
but normally clicking on the cashier or the deposit link will
inform you what methods they accept. Most books will have it setup where you need to enter
your password or initials to verify your wager. All of the books listed
on madduxsports.com are top notch and include a sportsbook review
so you can see all their company information, bonus plan, and
For western union, you will need to contact the sportsbook
and request the receiver’s information. Most of our readers already know why you should be
placing your bets offshore, bonuses, convenience, reduced juice,
etc. But again the online signup process
is pretty straightforward.
Visa and Mastercard deposits are a little trickier. but a lot of players simply are confused on how to
do so. It should
be clean and concise so placing bets can be made swiftly and
