There’s something really exciting about online betting these days, and that is the proliferation of tech that is being rolled out to make the betting experience for the user much more pleasurable and easy.

If you want to play online there are now so many avenues to pursue, the choice is almost mind boggling.

It’s not like the old days when if you wanted to play the slots for example you had the choice of some sleazy bar where you could get glassed just for looking in the wrong fucking direction, or the local kebab shop where the slot machine was covered in an inch of grease, and regularly flanked by the local chav thugs and their Burberries.

Now a days you can have a bet on the match, or put down a number on the roulette pretty much anywhere. Own a smartphone? Who doesn’t these days, and that’s the real clincher of the situation, you could be on the bog pushing out a loaf and win £300 on the roulette, or you could be in your jammies watching the telly bored out of your mind. Put down a bet, why not?

The choice of slot games online truly boggles the mind, and not only that it’s the payouts that will truly line your pockets depending on what you put in to each game. You can certainly can spend days trying one game after another until you find that particular game that really fits your state of mind.

One thing you need to look out for is putting your winnings into a separate wallet, and being rather rigid with the percentage of your money you use in each session. Don’t bet the whole bank on any game, unless you want to lose everything in one go. Discipline is the key to success, and learn to give it a rest once in awhile, give the betting gods a rest to recuperate.

Virtual reality gambling, that’s what’s really scary. Imagine the possibilities of such technological progress, here you are in your Scunthorpe council flat, it’s freezing in the middle of winter, and through your VR headset all you can see is palm trees, beautiful people, Vegas lights flashing and a hot croupier bending over the table displaying her delights for everyone to see.

Things are certainly changing for the better technologically, and that can only be a good thing for online betting and the punter. Better clean up whilst it’s still cool.*
