How to Choose the Right Sports Betting Platform for the Premier League


Sports betting is an integral part of any football experience, one in which increasing numbers of fans are taking part. By some estimates close to £1 billion is wagered on each and every fixture in the Premier League, making it one of the most lucrative and high-stakes events in the entire sporting industry.

Whether you're a long-time better or just getting started, the key to making the most of the experience is having the right tools at your disposal. Betting on your favourite teams and fixtures can be ruined if you end up using a poor-quality sports book. Here's your ultimate guide to choosing the right online sports betting platform to see you through the Premier League.

Compare Sign-Up Offers

It's no secret that pretty much every online sports betting platform tries to lure in new users with sign-up offers and bonuses. Some of these can be pretty generous, others less so. Most leading sites post their offers and bonuses prominently on their homepage, so getting the information you need shouldn't be a struggle. Offers can range from free credit to bet with all the way up to steeply discounted tickets for your favourite fixtures.

Read the Reviews

As with any new service that you're willing to spend money on, doing the right amount of research is key. A betting platform might seem great on paper, but the review might tell another story entirely. Always look for betting platforms with a strong average rating - Mr Green Casino, for example, had a good rating at the time of writing, backed up by hundreds of detailed reviews from users explaining the benefits of the service. By reading these, you know what to expect before you create an account.

Get a Feel for the Software

Sometimes the older and more well-known sports betting companies aren't the best in the digital world. Some just haven't made the successful transition to online sports betting, meaning that their websites and apps are clunky and difficult to use. Always explore a platform thoroughly and see how smoothly it runs, as well as how easy it is to place a bet and more importantly, how easy it is to withdraw your winnings. You'll also want to see whether the platform allows for the easy setup and monitoring of accumulators and other common forms of wagering.

Consider What Features Matter to You

When it comes to sports betting, what is it you want to see in a platform? Perhaps security is the most important thing for you, given that breaches of financial and personal data online are more common than ever. Perhaps you want to be able to bet not just on Premier League matches, but also on international leagues and global tournaments, all in one place. Maybe what matters most to you is having as wide as possible a range of betting options. Not all platforms offer these things, so your search should always start from these points in order to narrow down your options.

Winners are those who come prepared. Once you've done your homework and found the right platform for your needs, the only thing left to do is win.
