Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, a live boxing streaming trend has just surfaced in the online gambling space. Think about it for a second — the thrill of watching a live fight coupled with the uncertainty that comes with placing a wager on your favourite boxer. Those electric 40 minutes will definitely be the highlight of your weekends.
Getting started with live boxing streaming via an online bookie is easy: you just need an internet connection, a mobile device and some money. You also need to be over the age of 18.
Fortunately, the minimum deposit on most sites is pretty low, and online casinos usually offer a welcome bonus for new members. That’s literally free chances to win for new players who meet the requirements.
Bet365, for example, is a great place to get started with live sports betting. They have a minimum deposit of £5 for new players and just a 1X bet requirement for withdraws.
Launched in 2001, Bet365 has made quite a name for itself in the iGaming industry. From the high-quality live streaming service to unlimited withdrawals, it’s safe to say that this casino is an excellent choice for both novice and experienced players.
888sport is another great place to get started with live boxing streaming. They have over 20 years’ worth of experience in the gaming industry, and if user reviews are anything to go by, this casino is one of the best options out there. They are currently running a promo where new players get free bets worth £30 after placing a £10 wager on sports betting. From that offer alone, you stand a chance of doubling or even tripling your money.
Dafabet also has an incredible sports betting service which is popular with a worldwide audience. When it comes to serving the UK market, the casino offers an exclusive £30 matched free bet to players from the UK and Republic of Ireland. And just like any other of the major casinos out there, they have plenty of customer service options, including a live chat option, email, and a toll-free international phone number.
Unfortunately, despite the excellent live streaming capabilities of the aforementioned bookies, most of the really big boxing fights are shown on pay-per-view TV, which makes it almost impossible to find them at an online bookmakers. However, all of the above bookies offer excellent in-play betting options, with live statistical updates so you will know whether or not your bet has come in even before your chosen bookie pays out.
Since most internet users are on mobile, everyone in the iGaming industry has to offer a first-class mobile experience or remain on the sidelines. Mobile play gives users a personalised gaming experience on the go, while the casino gets more business coming through their virtual doors. So mobile integration is not really a choice, it is more of a necessity.
Unfortunately, with almost all of the major boxing events reserved for pay per view TV, you are unlikely to find live boxing streaming on mobile. However, all major bookies will offer a first-class in-play betting experience, allowing you to stay up to date with the match blow-by-blow.
That said, some casinos have also gone the extra mile to add TV streaming capabilities to their systems by supporting Amazon Fire TV stick, Android TV, Apple TV plus all the major TV brands. And that has been a real game changer in sports betting as players can now watch matches on big screens and place bets without missing a thing.
Though 2018 was an action-packed year, we all hope that this year will have more action for boxing enthusiasts. And from what the boards have so far, most matches will be on US soil, but we still have a couple of fights lined up in London for those who prefer the “real deal”.
One of the dates that everyone in the boxing fraternity is looking forward to is Saturday, February 02, 2019 when Sergio Garcia and Ted Cheeseman will battle it out for the EBU European Super Welterweight Title. The location is 02 Arena, Greenwich, London and it’s expected to be a hot one.
Another interesting fight that will be in the same location is James DeGale vs. Chris Eubank Jr. It is a 12 round super middleweight fight and is scheduled for Saturday, February 23, 2019.
