Searching for a good betting site
This is the first and foremost requirement for any new bettor. Do thorough research and select a website which is not only simple and easy to navigate through but also has a reputation of being safe and secure. A good track record when it comes to paying out the winnings is another thing to look for.
Creating an account
Once you have zeroed in on a website, you need to open an account. Simply click on the `Join now´ or `Register now´ tab on the welcome page. You will be directed towards another page, where you will be entering your personal information like name, date of birth, contact details, and address, etc. Also, your preferred login ID and password will be asked.
Make a deposit
Once you create an account, you will need to make an initial deposit in your account, to use the money to place bets. Most websites accept deposits in various currencies like INR, USD, GBP etc. You can make deposits via any of the accepted payment method on the website. This may include Bank transfer, Credit/Debit card, Neteller, Skrill etc. Don’t forget to claim your `Welcome bonus´ or `First deposit bonus´ at this stage.
Once the deposit is reflected in your account, select the match you want to bet on, and then select the outcome you want to bet on, enter the amount that you wish to wager, and click confirm. Your bet is placed!
