Perhaps one of OddsChecker’s greatest strengths is the simplicity with which wagers can be placed. However, with the site boasting a great range of different betting markets to explore, sometimes newcomers can become confused and put off. This guide will simplify everything, from the betting process to negotiating the various markets attached to each event.
The ‘Sign Up / Log In’ button at the top of the screen will take you to the screen where you can register your details. Click on the ‘Sign Up’ tab to get started. Fill out all of the necessary fields and ensure that you have a strong password.
Selected offers at popular bookmakers are already visible on OddsChecker, and can be used even without an OddsChecker account. However, having an account with notifications enabled keeps you up to date with the latest offers available to new registrants with specific bookmakers.
Clicking on the banners or links pertaining to special offers will take you straight to the bookmaker's site. In most cases, any special codes will be pre-entered into the sign-up URL, to ensure that things like free bets and matched bonuses are available immediately.
If you click on a specific sport, you will be presented with a list of upcoming matches and the live moneyline odds (party 1 / tie / party 2) for each. Moneyline odds can be backed simply by clicking on the price and then following the process detailed in the next section.
Matches are listed chronologically, and by clicking on a match name (e.g. ‘Patriots v Eagles’) or the ‘All Odds’ link, you can view the full range of match markets available for that specific event. Again, you will be presented with the moneyline odds, but by clicking on the ‘Change Market’ menu above the odds grid, you can view the most popular niche markets that pertain to the event.
If none of those pique your interest, you can click on ‘View all Markets’ to see every one that is available on OddsChecker. Select the market that is of interest, and click on the price listed under the appropriate bookmaker’s logo in the grid. However, it is worth remembering that there may be some markets which are only active with one bookmaker.
To place a bet, you must already have an account with any of the bookmakers listing active odds on the comparison lists attached to each event, and any niche markets within it.
Assuming that you have already deposited into your online account with the bookmaker in question, you have the option to either:
- Place the bet via the pop-up window that appears on OddsChecker. This is a simple, streamlined process that can be done in two clicks after you have entered your desired wager into the field when prompted.
- Place your wager on the bookmaker’s site, by clicking the appropriate action button. You will then be redirected to it, and prompted to log in if you have not already done so.
Whichever you choose, the bet is placed instantly under ante-post settings, whereas an in-play bet is often subject to several seconds’ delay, allowing for any fluctuation.
Any winnings are withdrawn via the usual means on the bookmaker’s site, and transferred back to the source from which the initial deposit was made. For example, winnings on wagers made with a Paypal deposit must be transferred back to that same Paypal account.
Only OddsChecker can provide the fullest range of niche markets in existence for just about any sport in existence. There are also political and novelty markets to explore, and OddsChecker has practically everything. From the ‘next James Bond’ to the ‘next Batman’, nothing is too ridiculous in the entwined worlds of odds comparison and modern betting markets!
Most importantly of all, every bookmaker listed on the grids showing odds are fully vetted, licensed and compliant to customer service charters that pertain to the betting industry.
