Some countries have different laws and regulations regarding live betting. For example if u reside in Australia it is against the law to wager live online, all bets must be phoned through.

/eliminating Australia from possible countries to emigrate

i just say: Marat Safin to win the match with a Break @ 6.81

game at 4-5 and Tomas looked like he just ran a marathon

more value than a bet on Detroit Red WIngs to win the Series.

That hurts alot, serious. You can miss out on alot in that few seconds it takes for the account verification and all the above stuff they ask. I use American and eglish sites, they let you bet live.

UK and Europe live betting has really taken off in the last few years. Both with Bookmaker.com/?cmpid=4437" target="_blank">Bookmakers located there and also the people that reside there. Easily world leaders in volume in live betting. Other parts of the world not even close due to a few reasons.

you are damn right... i remember the days in the tennis stadiums when there were like 1/10 sitting with laptops... and they surely didnt play GTA III, and then they forbid THAT, they just switched to mobiles... mobile phone can access any sportsbook aswell. and if you'd graph the 'volume' of Berlin's WTA final last week, you'd get an e-function, like 1 million Brit. Pounds during first set... and when the market closed, it was like 6 or 7 million... i'd be interested in the average volume of a NBA or MLB/NFL game... if anyone has the numbers, he's asked to post them here.

I have only done it 3 times, twice during football, and once during hoops. I have made $$ 2-3 times. I just do it if I am home watching a game and real board. Not for alot, I will take 1 unit and just mess around with $3-$5 live wagers just for kicks.

I dont really use Bodoglife.com/welcome/1345673-E309/sportsbook/" target="_blank">Bodog, but I have been the past few days, and I actually did this tonight for the lakers game. Was only betting 5 to 10 bucks on each bet, but hell I won like 100 bucks tonight off of it. I like betting that they will miss the 2nd free throw, I did with Kobe at +520 and he missed it. You could find some really good value in some of those.

i rarily bet much these days but have a lot of experience with in-game

i found one of the best opps was to take the dog ML before a game starts, and then wait and see if the dog gets out to a strong start. Often, you can then get by early first half (late 2nd quarter football) a + line on what was the favorite, thus locking in a guaranteed profit. Or, if spreads are involved you can get potentially a +7 on the dog and ingame a +something on the fav.

these days the ONLY bets i make in nba are quarter bets. Last night, celetics 3rd quarter was a perfect opp. Home team favored by 9 in a series where the home team always wins. Down 3 at half, they put up a -4 3rd quarter line and they covered the quarter with a 12 point swing.

i also think that many bettors get screwed with 1st q bets. it's tempting to expect a team to get a strong start but also is too easy for one team to start flat.

live betting is like gambling crack. i never have done the Bodoglife.com/welcome/1345673-E309/sportsbook/" target="_blank">Bodog bet on every pitch or down in football.

live betting in soccer is pretty good

sometimes if you look for the under games, you can hit a NO Goal Live Bet around the 62th minute

People watch a little bit of the game & think if it's 14 - 0 or something then the game is over. Taking teams that are losing + those huge live points has stuffed my wallet.

I only play bets that are not time critical in halftime. My TV service is too far behind real time.
