It is undeniable that the past few months have taken a toll on the gambling and betting industry. Because of the outbreak, many gambling venues were forced to close. Thus, resulting in a huge drop in betting and wagers. But one notable fact that can be seen from these changes is with the online sports betting industry.

According to several reports, there has been a rise in some fields of online gambling. As shown in the graph above, although the betting revenues have dropped, the crisis will lead to an increase in profits for the online sports betting industry. Research has also shown that the global health crisis has paved the way for migration from offline to online gambling.

  • They provide advanced betting features you don’t normally find on betting websites. Some make use of API, giving you access to various bookies around the world or provide you with faster withdrawals, among other things.
