(PRWEB) March 11, 2005 -- If you’re looking to fine tune your betting
strategies ready for Cheltenham then there’s nowhere better that the new tipster
competition at www.olbg.co.uk
With so many UK bookmaker sites saturating the online betting market and trying to swipe your every last penny, it’s refreshing to see something different – a site that focuses on fun and advice. Somewhere you might actually win some money without risking your shirt. One such site is OLBG. In particular its unique new tipster competition, which many of its 1000 members regard as their training ground.
While tipster and fantasy competitions are not new, OLBG offers a level of sophistication not seen elsewhere. What’s more entry is free.
The basic aim of the competition is to take a bank of virtually money and make as much profit as possible by the end of the month by making virtual bets on a huge range of markets. The people with the most profit at the end of the month win the prizes.
As well as covering every UK & Irish horse racing meeting and over 30 football leagues, the site covers sports like rugby, tennis, golf, cricket, basketball and NFL, plus special bets like Pop Idol, the Oscars and Crufts.
The various betting markets made available to OLBG Tipsters are equally impressive.
Football tipsters have betting options like full time result, half time result, double result, correct score, first goal scorer, and Asian handicap. Horse racing tipsters are not left out either with win, each-way, and lay betting available to them.
A Risk free place to learn
The competition pays monthly cash prizes and is completely free to enter making it a great risk free place to learn. Says Antony Portno, developer of the competition, “I wanted to create something that was both fun to play and a great place for people to learn and experiment. There are so many different types of bet today, people needed somewhere to practice.”
In essence the tipster competition offers close to the functionality of a bookmaker site, it’s just that they don’t take your money – in fact they give you money.” Beginners often use the site to try out new bets, whereas experienced punters use it to test new systems and strategies.
The tipster competition has been hugely popular with existing members. Each tipster can see his or her own ranking in 8 different league tables such as “Best football tipster” and “Best laying tipster”. Tipsters also have access to the tips and tip histories of all the other players. Players can even set up their own mini leagues to compete against their friends and work together to win a monthly prize for the best team performance.
OLBG’s competition has attracted some top classes punters. This makes it a good source for free tips. There is a very popular forum where they throw around ideas, and offer advice to beginners. Members can set up email alerts to be notified when tipsters they follow make a selection, or if there are many tipsters going for the same selection. Like everything else on OLBG, this is all free.
As well as the competition the site offers lots of additional information such as poker and casino game strategies, bookmaker promotions, horse trainer information, spread betting markets and TV Schedules. This information alone is invaluable to any serious punter.
