Rugby betting in New Zealand
Betting on rugby has always been an integral part of New Zealand culture. It may not have always been regulated but every man and his dog likes to have a friendly rugby bet with his mates. As the game has gone from strength to strength so has the desire for Kiwis to have a bet on their favourite team.
The only problem in the past has been that most New Zealand rugby betters wanted to bet with their heart and not their head - on the All Blacks! It’s pretty hard to get a good price when everybody wants to be on the same team.
In the past the only place Kiwis could have a bet was at their local TAB. The TAB didn’t offer a great service and certainly didn’t offer good prices. The prices especially on the local teams were always bad as they didn’t have punters wanting to back the other side. Competition has created a much better atmosphere for punters and online betting has opened the door for Kiwis to take advantage of better services and better prices.
Online rugby betting and what it offers you
For Kiwi punters, places like 888sport will offer far more bang for your buck than anything offered locally, particularly if you want to back your Super 14 team or get on the All Blacks. 888sport is part of the 888 online gaming company, one of the largest in the world. People from all over the globe bet with 888 every day so there is plenty of competition which means better prices for you.
The most common question asked about online gaming is, ‘Is is safe?’ Well unfortunately not all sports books are going to be safe. It’s hard enough backing a winner without worrying if you are actually going to get paid. Some of these dubious online betting agencies are operated in third world islands that you may have never heard of and no one really knows if their money is safe.
With 888 however you know that it is a publicly listed company on the London Stock Exchange which means it is bound by British law. That also means that your money is safe and you are going to get paid every time. So the answer is easy, just make an informed decision and use an online bookmaker you can trust.
Imagine sitting down in your favourite chair at home with a cold beer waiting for the rugby to start. No need to race down to your local TAB to put a bet on - you can do it in the comfort and safety on your own home on the internet. Online betting with 888sport is easy, safe and most of all it gives you the betting range and prices you want without having to shop around.
