To win over the casino I need to be a mathematical genius or know how to count cards at Blackjack, right? Actually, no! There is a way that doesn’t require advanced maths and you don’t even need to be good at gambling or betting. Read on to learn how!
But let’s take it from the beginning.
Choosing a casino
Today you will find hundreds of different casinos in Sweden alone and it can be difficult to navigate in the casino landscape. So we will present what you should consider when picking a casino and that takes us straight to the new gambling law.
The new swedish gambling law took effect in january 2019 which means that the bookies are required to have a gambling license to operate in Sweden. Spelinspektionen is the regulator to which the bookies apply for a license, and to retrieve a license the bookies need to meet certain criterias. As a bettor you have more protection today with the new law as the bookies need to pay greater attention to the increasing gambling abuse. For example you can suspend yourself from all bookmakers with a few clicks. Furthermore the new law means that the bookie;
- Must offer registration with BankID which makes the process easier and safer.
- You can suspend yourself from all bookmakers and set limits to your gambling.
- The bookies are paying more taxes than before.
With these new laws you can bet more safely and secure at the bookmakers that acquired a license with Spelinspektionen and at Oddstoincome we only present bookmakers that have a license. That is why you can feel confident in knowing that the bookmakers presented at Oddstoincome are licensed bookies and therefore lives up to the standards set by the swedish gambling regulator.
Choosing a bonus
The bookmakers loves handing out bonuses! And that is of course because they are so generous? No, that’s not really the case…It’s because the bookmakers believe that you will continue to use their services as your choice of bookmaker. I am sure you are aware of the big variety of bookmakers available on the market and each one of them offer different bonuses. And it can be tricky to know which bookie and bonus to pick. That’s why you need to be able to determine if a bonus is good or not.
What you probably should look at first is the wagering requirement that comes with the bonus. Because when deciding on a bonus one of the most important factor is the wagering and that’s how we can decide if a bonus is worth taking or not. An offer comes with a wagering requirement whether you bet on casino or on sports. The wagering means that we have to bet, or play, for a certain amount of money before the bonus is unlocked and available for a withdrawal. And the wagering requirement can differ greatly from one bonus to the next. So let’s say a casino offer of 5.000 kr comes with a wagering requirement of 40, it means that we need to wager 200.000 kr before the bonus is unlocked, which is a huge amount. But if we instead pick a bonus for 1.000 kr that comes with a wagering requirement of 15 times, we will need to wager 15.000 kr, which is definitely more reasonable.
Choosing a casino game
When you finally decided on what online casino to use you are given another hard choice, choosing what game to play on. If there were many bookmakers to choose from wait until you are faced with the decision of picking a casino game…there are plenty!
On every online casino you will encounter the classic table games such as Roulette, Blackjack and Poker like on any actual casino. The bookmakers has gone great lengths to recreate the environment that you can find in a casino, especially in the live casino where you can find live dealers. In other words you won’t need to leave your home to get a real casino experience.
Another very popular game at the casino are the slot machines. At the slots, as they are called, you bet on the symbols forming a winning pattern. The bookies offer hundreds of different slots and it can be tricky to pick the right one. If your goal is to get as much money back as possible on the slot you shall pick one with as high a RTP as possible.
And what is RTP? RTP means Return To Player and tells you how much you can expect in return on any slot machine.
Let’s say you play 100 kr on a slot machine with a RTP value of 96%. This means you can expect 96 kr in return and a 4 kr loss, which also is the bookies winning share.
A RTP value is hypothetical, which means you are not guaranteed to get what the RTP value is in return. The amount is an average and is based on you playing an infinite number of times. So when you pick a slot you should pick the one that has the highest RTP to get as much money in return as possible.
Pros and cons with online casino
Gambling abuse in Sweden has risen in the last ten years which is one reason the new gambling law was introduced. A lot of people still suffer from the online casino industry, especially due to the availability the casinos today offer. Also the welcome offers will attract more players to the casinos.
The gambling law puts more pressure on the bookmakers to work against gambling related issues such as gambling abuse. Yet the bookmakers are making huge amount and as a user of a casino service you will in the end lose money and the bookmaker will make money, so the equation don’t add up. The bookmaker will always find ways to earn money. And surely, casino and sports can bring joy and excitement to you and your friends and some people will consider that to be worth spending money on, and nothing wrong with that!
But what would you say if I told you that there are ways in which you can turn the odds in your favor on both casino and sports? There is actually a way you can beat the bookies by converting the bonus offers into a real and tax free profit.
The tables have turned
Pay close attention now, because we will present a method where you can make a profit by using a completely legal method. In Sweden the method is still quite unknown but in England the method is very popular and mentioned in news papers such as The Guardian or The Telegraph.
Matched betting is a way of using the bonuses that the bookmakers offer you and works both on sport and casino sites.
As we previously mentioned more or less all bookmakers offer a bonus when you register as a new customer on their site. Whether or not you choose to register on casino or on sport the bonus comes with terms and conditions that will in the end profit the bookie. And the bookie believes you will use their services again which will make them profit even more on you.
But what do you need to start making a profit of the bookies?
- A small amount of money to start with, about 500 – 1.000 kr
- A new email account.
- Learn the method.
The good thing about this method is that you don’t need to be interested in sports or casinos or have any knowledge about betting. Matched betting is really simple and anyone can use it. The only decision you have to make now is whether you want to begin with casino offers or sport offers. Currently there is more than 20.000 kr you could earn by using the offers.
Make sure you do not miss this opportunity in making a profit from the bookies, so the tables have been turned!
