Massive strides have been made in technology over the last five years, placing a high powered, lightening fast computer in the hands of almost every New Zealander. This powerful computer, also referred to as a smart phone, seems to have been plucked straight from an episode of Star Trek, but exists in modern times. Besides making watching a film while on a road trip possible, smart phones have also allowed bet makers to get better access to bet making facilities than ever before. A smart phone is, basically, a mobile betting station.
The latest model smart phone is not required in order to access online bookmaker websites, and in fact virtually any smart phone will do. The user need simply access a bookmaker’s website, and a mobile bet can be placed in less than a minute. It’s convenience that almost defies belief. Plus, winning may also be collected in the same simple fashion, providing a one stop online betting portal. The only real question is how a bet maker will decide between all the amazing bargain deals constantly on offer.
New Zealanders are known for loving their rugby and cricket, but there are a number of other sports out there that a mobile bet can be placed on. The question is; which sports are covered by online bookmakers in New Zealand, and can have a mobile bet placed on them? The answer is; all of them. Most online bookmakers provide betting services for every sport under the sun, assuming it is played on a professional level.
Some of the more niche sports may not be covered by every bookmaker, but rest assured that the bigger bookmakers will cover as many sports as possible, and aim to have even the most obscure sports from around the world. Of course, the more popular any sport becomes, the more likely bookmakers are to cover them. Such novelty betting options as how many times a sportsperson will injure themselves in a season have become available, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Online Bookmaker Services
Online bookmakers are legal, licensed entities, working strictly within New Zealand sports betting laws. Each is regulated by the government, and will never allow any betting to take place that is beyond established rules. Best of all, these bookmaking services are available to New Zealand citizens via online websites. To access an online bookmaker and place a mobile bet, a bet maker can simply navigate to the website as they would any other website, or download an application to a smart phone. Applications are generally offered by online bookmakers for free, and take just a few minutes to download and install.
The best thing about online bookmakers is that they not only allow convenient bet making, but also reward customers with loyalty points. Once enough loyalty points have been accumulated, the user is granted special bonus prizes, such as free betting cash and other VIP services. Some online bookmakers even give away such things as holidays and appliances, simply to demonstrate to users how grateful they are for business. It seems that it is a great time for sports betting in New Zealand to be active.
