What Parents Need to Know About Sports Betting

Published 23rd June 2021

A free online safety guide on sports betting.

Sports betting involves staking money on the predicted outcome of sports results. Online sports gambling is much faster and easier than using a traditional bookmaker and provides more markets to wager on – including in-play betting, enabling bets to be placed on an event after it has started. Online betting operators also provide the incentive of odds which look like a better deal than high-street bookmakers, along with bonuses and promotions for customers. Alongside the convenience of being able to place a bet (in seconds) from a mobile phone or tablet at any time, this has helped online sports betting in the UK to grow year on year.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as underage gambling, addiction and a negative impact on mental health.
