Technology and Online Sportsbetting

For New Zealand punters betting on sports has evolved since the days of having to make a trip to a bookie on the corner or to a land based casino or sports bar.  This is all thanks to the internet which has made sportsbetting more accessible to more people.

Punters now have access to loads of information, websites that can track sportsbetting trends as well as stats and up to the minute updates that can often affect the outcome of a bet.  These days New Zealand punters can make use of technology in every aspect of their bet and with so much information available online it makes placing a well informed bet that much easier.

Tracking Bets

Technology has made the task of tracking bets so much easier than spending hours compiling a spread sheet, an app is available which will do all the hard work.  Punters will find a range of these apps online which will be able to send this information directly to their phone.  These apps are very detailed and will give punters an analysis of their favourite bets; teams that made them lose or win as well as other helpful stats.

Mobile Technology

Anyone with a smart phone or mobile device can make a bet.  With the advancement of mobile technology most of the sportsbetting sites will have a mobile betting option.  The great news is that New Zealand punters can take advantage of this technology to make fast bets as well as have access to in-game betting.  In-game betting lets punters receive up to the minute changes in lines and odds.

Using Online Information

All punters have their own personal betting style and they rely on information to make their bets.  Some punters will only analyse scores and others will use much more in depth research.  The internet can be extremely useful as there is a wealth of information out there and punters can access various databases compiled by different sportsbooks as well as stats for most sports.

Social Media

Sportsbetting has benefitted greatly from technology and the way punters are able to interact with it has changed.  Social media such as Twitter, Facebook and even Instagram can be very useful tools when placing a bet.  Just as the man on the street uses social media so do sports men and women.  Many times they will give their fans information such as their mind-set before a game, which could possibly change the way, a punter places a bet.  Social media has made sports accessible to almost everyone who has access to the internet, whereas before there was no way of interacting with sports stars or teams and this inside information not only enhances the entertainment factor but can also give vital information.  The information could be as small as finding out that an athlete is not well, which means they will probably not be functioning at their best.

Technology has allowed punters more access to a wealth of information and has made sportsbetting much simpler, safer and easier.
