Learning how to bet on cricket is very easy. If you are betting online for the very first time, you will have to register an account in a few places until you are ready to place your first.
There are three basic steps that you need to follow to learn how to bet on cricket:
- Creation of a Betting Account
- Depositing Money
- Placing Your Bets
Not to worry, though, because the process is very simple and we will ensure you don’t have any problems through it.
Let us start!
🏏 How To Bet On Cricket? Create A Betting Account
Choose a betting site on which you want to bet on. There are a lot of reputable and trustworthy sites that allow you to bet on cricket. If you are from India, Pakistan, Sri Lank, Bangladesh, or Nepal then you may have a few more restrictions than some of the other cricket playing countries.
Choose from 10Cric, Betway, or bet365. There are a lot more betting websites that are available for cricket betting, however, we do not want to complicate the issue. Any one of these three sites is a great place from where to begin. Not only are these trusted names, they also welcome Indian customers and allow them to play in INR as their currency.
They also offer some very good cricket betting bonuses.
Just head on over to the homepage of these sites. Click on the ‘Register Now’ button and follow the instructions. Make sure to use your own details while registering otherwise you may face some added scrutiny while withdrawing your money.
Betting websites carry out verification steps before money can be withdrawn from betting accounts. Any wrong information entered during the registration process can come back to hurt you.
🏏 Deposit Money
Once you have created your online betting account, you need to deposit some money. Every single casino or betting website has a clear list of deposit methods. These vary from region to region.
If you are from a country like India, your options are a bit more limited than someone who is from Europe for example. Some of the names we have mentioned allow Indian customers to make bank transfers or their debit/credit cards.
If this method is available, we advise using it since it is the simplest way. Depending upon your bank, the website you are betting on, or the country you are betting from, these methods may not always work.
This is where other options come in.
We recommend using pre-paid e-wallets like Neteller, Skrill, EntroPay, or ecoPayz. Most major online casinos and betting websites accept these e-wallets. The deposits made from these methods also show up instantly in your betting account, allowing you to bet immediately.
Signing up for these methods is a little time-consuming the first time but it saves you a lot of trouble in the long run. Just head on over to their websites and follow the instructions.
Websites that allow you to bet via these e-wallets will also allow you to withdraw your winnings to them. Keep this in mind since it is a lot easier and quicker to get your winnings deposited in an e-wallet than any other method.
🏏 How To Bet On Cricket? Place Your Bets
Once you have deposited some money in your betting account, you are just one click away from betting on cricket online. Head on over to the sports section and click on cricket. That should open up a list of cricket matches (international and domestic) on which the sportsbook is offering cricket odds right now.
Cricket odds (or bhav as it is called in India) indicate the return you will get by placing a bet.
For example, you want to place a bet on an India vs Pakistan match.
The odds being offered for an India win are 1.70, and the odds being offered for a Pakistan win are 2.30.
This indicates that a bet of Rs.100 on India will return a total of Rs.170.
Your winning amount is 170-100 = 70.
A bet of Rs.100 on Pakistan will return a total of Rs. 230.
Your winning amount is 230-100 = 130.
Once you have chosen your cricket match, go through the number of bets being offered. You can choose from a number of bets on cricket matches including match winner, highest scorer, 50+ scores, highest wicket-takers, over/under, and many more. There are bets that keep changing with the match, called live in-play bets, that are very attractive to cricket loves as well.
Choose your bet, select how much money you want to stake, and then press the ‘place bet’ button.
That is it. You can now sit back and enjoy the match. The bet is paid out to the winners as soon as the corresponding event has taken place.
