In recent years technology has revolutionised the way customers are able to interact with online sports books. The global gross gaming/gambling yield amounts to more than 400 billion U.S. dollars each year (Statasia).
The industry is made up of multiple segments, however, the fastest growing is the online/interactive category, which has grown at a consistent rate over the last few years from 20 billion dollars in 2009, to 40 billion dollars in 2016.
Many highstreet sportsbook companies such as William Hill and Ladbrokes have made the move into online and it’s not hard to see why with statistics like these. A recent survey conducted by Statista showed more than 50% of 18 year olds and above have used an online sports book to place a bet at least once in their lives. With the traction that many forms of cryptocurrency are gaining, especially bitcoin, the foundations of online gaming are changing.
Usage of cryptocurrencies allows the end user to gamble completely anonymously without having the need to firstly create an account, and produce documents. He can make one click bets and withdrawals repidly, however, this all depends on the platform. A platform that introduces revolutionary new features like this is Sportsbet.io, the leading bitcoin-led sportsbooks operated by the coingaming group.
