CHOOSE YOUR SPORTSBOOK
JUST AS YOU WOULD CHOOSE YOUR MATE
Each football season brings on a whole new rendezvous which by the time baseball comes around, separation may indeed be inevitable. This mating dance of sorts takes place when the ever hungry gambler goes out on the prowl (usually in August, sometimes sooner),searching for the perfect companion to get him through the pro football season without losing his sanity. The savvy gambler will expect the most out of his mate: demanding availability just prior to Monday night s kickoff-this is just one of several requirements. On Sunday morning-FORGET ABOUT IT!! Your partner MUST be on call to serve your every need. A matter of fact, this is to be expected 24/7 and even beyond the 5 months encompassing football season for that matter.
Next question? What the hell kind of a Woman is going to fulfill every one of those requiremenst ? Surely the loyal football fan would love for his lady to aspire in being the quintessential football QUEEN-be seen(rarely) and never be heard, obey, jump when called upon to do so, and always be available at the snap of a finger. Sorry guys, these types of women disappeared along with the dinosaurs.
Many gamblers have now stumbled upon the wonderful world of offshore wagering but in so doing, it’s often difficult to decide which sportsbook is the best in fulfilling your needs. After all there are some 500 plus books operating offshore.
Some are featured online while others remain strictly accessible via phone.
As such, the gambler looking into prospective offshore sportsbook operations MUST search for the identical traits he seeks in acquiring a mate. Unlike the females species,there are sportsbooks that meet these requirements.
Finding the perfect match does NOT have to be an enduring task if you know which traits are most important and how to go about pursuing them.
- SEARCHING FOR THAT PERFECT MATCH
Dr. Joyce Brothers might not always be there for you actually chances are she will NEVER be there for you. But no need to fear, there is still hope along the way and
It is just a matter of knowing where to find it. Expert advise is never out of reach when looking for the perfect sportsbook . Finding that expert advise, however, can
Sometimes be as daunting a task as searching out the most desirable place to wager.
The top sources on the Net for finding un-bias information as it relates to the offshore
Gaming industry are few and far between, but alas there are some that do stand out and demand the gambler` s attention. The prescription (www.theprescription.com) is now considered the number one authority when it comes to offshore sportsbooks.
Run by a real life psychiatrist who fittingly calls himself “the shrink” (and as such as he makes for an excellent substitution for a Dr. Joyce Brothers),his was one of the first sites to ever dedicate itself to the offshore gaming industry.
Stocksandgambling.com(www.stocksandgambling.com) is a companion site to the prescription and also seeks to incorporate the most stringent of standards when it comes to accepting new members. The content here is devoted to publicly traded companies with a special emphasis on I Gaming stocks. The Off Shore Gaming Association(http://www.osga.com) is another fine site endorsing only the cream of the crop. They have also selected to avoid the glitz and overbearing special effects which encompass other less focused sites.
Instead the OSGA chose to concentrate on gatering together member sportsbooks who adhere to strict rules set by this quasi-regulating offshore gaming agency. The OSGA owners visit these operations prior to accepting their membership. They also
Attempt to resolve disputes between players and books. Slowly but surely, the OSGA has established itself as a relied upon source of information for the gambler looking to bet offshore.
Other sources of relevant industry expertise can be found in the works of top industry correspondents like:

2) LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
When hunting for the perfect woman, a man will first gawk at her well endowed features; undress her with his eyes as she struts seductively across the walkway before him. She will then stop short and casually lift her tight body contouring dress while his tongue dangles effortlessly from within his mouth.This busty beauty will approach, hands fondling her triple D breasts as she dares him to touch and just as he reaches forward……HE WAKES UP … ALONE.
Love at first site means a great deal when looking for the perfect online sportsbook .Just as a beautiful female will draw you in with her outward appearance, inviting you to her innermost sanctuary,the online sportsbook MUST strive to do the same. A catchy site will entice the web surfer to explore further the other features which make this particular operation unique….A sloppy disorganized and even neglected website suggests the owners are either disinterested or unable to keep up with the innovations of this fast-paced industry.
3) SIZE DOES MATTER
Whoever said size does NOT matter probably was not a sports bettor, and I seriously doubt that person was a woman either. The male animal will normally be drawn to a slinky svelt mate although some men do prefer round robust females. In the world of sportsbooks, BIG means BETTER…. usually, but not always. We cannot neglect the “mom and pop” type shops that have public with excellent accommodations over the years. A LARGE sportsbook more often than not affords the security that comes with years of exponential growth and profit making.
4) WHAT`S IN A NAME?
Names involve a sort of passion , but try not to be fooled by the face behind such disreputable businesses as the Paramounts;Empires;and Universals.They may all have titles suggesting cinematic glorification, yet this could not be further from the truth. It` s the embodiment behind the name that gets the ball rolling. Millenium Sports suggests the ultimate in an overall wagering experience and, fortunately for the players, this particular books lives up to its awe-inspiring name as does the likes of a NASA International ( the clever abbreviated version of North American Sports Association).
Just remember, a catchy name may demand one` s attention, but in the end it is what lies behind the name that truly counts….and what it eventually boils down to is that names really mean NOTHING if by the end of the season the only name you will be stuck with is SUCKER and theirs is MUDD.
5) IT`S ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS BABY
“While We Enjoy Placing The Bet; Watching The Game ;And Watching Out Team (Hopefully) Win –The Biggest Thrill Of All Is Making That Cash Withdrawl…The Thrill Is Short –Lived If Your Book Suffers From Cashflow Problems And Is Unable To Pay You”.
Once we get beyond looks, there are indeed other attributes which simply MUST come into play. It `s all about the financing behind that diamond ring she wears on her finger – the one YOU did not buy her. It` s all about that red Ferrari she drives and who is REALLY behind the wheel in her life. Odds are 10-1 it` s probably not YOU! With wealth normally comes security.
Unfortunately a solid shop does not always announce itself as being so in print ads, and if it DOES , there is usually no real method of determining the truth behind such a statement. A two-month old operation may make the same claim right along side the real deal. Be wary of books that offer the world! When bonuses look too good to be
True, they usually ARE. It comes as little surprise that two of last year`s big “reduced juice offer” books have since run into severe cashflow problems in recent months.
Suckers love FREE stuff with seemingly no strings attached and SCAMMERS love SUCKERS, thus a match made in heaven, albeit a one-way relationship. The savvy offshore player, while always looking for value, will focus beyond initial gimmicks regarding sign up bonuses and it should be noted that some of the best shops offshore fail to even offer such eye-catching incentives, but instead would rather concentrate their efforts on maintaining a loyal and satisfied customer base.
It is true there are a number of fine shops that do offer an abundance of sign-up bonuses, but upon careful evaluation it usually becomes clear that there are stipulations involved which protect the book from going caput. Look for books that offer bonuses but impose maximum monies allowed as well as those that require large deposits in order to receive such incentives. Yes it` s great to drain the sportsbook for all its worth, but what good is THAT if your sportsbook ends up being worthless in the end? Just be careful not to join up based on bonuses ALONE or, in the end, you may find yourself having less than what you started with when you entered into this relationship.
6) ONE NIGHT STAND OF LASTING RELATIONSHIP?
One night stands can be fun but not when you wake up the next morning ALONE (unless of course you were drunk that night and brought home the bride of Frakenstein ….or for the straight arrows out there –A MAN ). A one night stand in the offshore sports wagering industry will no doubt lead to one of the more empty experiences you will ever encounter in all your adult life.
This so-called “one night stand” is likely to have long lasting ramifications for many years to come. Fly by night operations, sad to say, are commonplace in the industry. The con artists are drawn in like magnets for mainly three reasons: 1) because of the sheer money involved; 2) because of the lack in regulations; and 3) like it or not, there is a fair amount of GREED at both ends of the spectrum-and that my friends is the nature of sports betting. Longevity in the business is normally a sign of strength and endurance. How else could an operation survive and have amassed such a loyal following over a period of time without properly paying its customers?
Yes, we would be remiss in stating that some businesses remain afloat by SELECTIVELY paying certain clients; though the Internet and the speed at wich one may now access information will at some point drive such disreputable shops out of business. Posting forums like the one found at the Prescription is an excellent place to find out what players are saying about sportsbooks, whether they be negative or positive.
7) BEAUTY IS ONLY SKIN DEEP
“ Personality is often coupled with knowledge and those books that possess such knowledge are likely to stick around for the long haul” Eventually during the mating process, one will have to get beyond just physical attraction as it will ultimately end up being PERSONALITY that will sustain this marriage. When selecting a sporstsbook, how you are treated in the beginning says a great deal about how you will be treated in the long run. Professional courteous service is the key to success. A well-trained staff will normally indicated care and diligence in setting up the business. One cannot rely JUST on first impressions.
Make no mistake about it, any half-witted con artist can pretend to be Mary Poppins over the phone and any average Joe Sucker will fall for this ruse. Personality is often coupled with knowledge and those books that possess such knowledge will likely stick around for the long haul. Be sure to ask plenty of tough questions when you make the initial phone call. Conduct research prior to connecting with the book. Review sites like the Prescription. Com and ask your friend for advise before diving head first when there is no water. Players need not have a shallow relationship with his sportsbook. Once the courting process has concluded-a lasting marriage cannot be too far off in the distance. TRUST is the ultimate attribute that binds a cherished union especially when such trust envolved from a blind chance meeting. Once the vows are read ; the money exchanged; and the flowers are long dead- only then will it be time to look back and re-evaluate your (hopefully wise) selection. Failure to read each of the above outlined steps could ultimately lead to divorce come post-Super Bowl at which time all you will be left with is what you started off with –a PHONE NUMBER…. Only this time when you dial the number, there is a 9 in 10 chance it will be DISCONNECTED. The price for seduction is often great and no place is this more apparent than in the world of offshore sports wagering .
