How bookmaker earn from betting?

Bookmakers of course, also have a profit.

Example: Let us assume that the bookmaker would offer its sports betting entirely non-profit and one is at a football game money on all 3 possible outcomes (win / draw / loss). One would then making an accurate distribution of the use of the 3 events, regardless of the result occurs ultimately, get back 100% of its use again. Bookmakers pay less, usually only about 90-95% of their quota to offer the events again. Find the sports betting payouts all bookmakers. Gives the probability that is a real rate of 1.7, the bookmaker customers a lower rate, perhaps offering to 1.65. Have the highest rates in the way, generally the top provider Bet365 and Betfair. Bookmakers rejoice course on outsider wins, since the majority relies on favourites.

Legal sports betting

From 01.01.2008 until summer 2013 in Germany was subject to a gambling treaty, said that there may be only a state betting line. Since all bookmakers but from abroad and therefore acted by German law could not be sued, they continued to provide a quotation available. Germany wanted to prevent the course with all the strength, so that the income from sports betting only flow into the coffers of the state budget – and not to private providers.

Therefore, there is now a regular since 01.07.2012 model, with each provider has to pay 5% of betting turnover as a control. Therefore, many of the vendors were licensed by the state of Schleswig Holstein, whose range is therefore controlled by the state (the best providers are currently licensed: Bet365, Sportingbet, William Hill, Bet-at-home and bwin). No tax paid by these customers the way only at Tipico (Betfair has over one million customers and sponsors many Bundesliga).

Can I register at the bookmaker without a license?

So far we have not heard from players that they were due to sign prosecuted or even condemned. When you sign up with a provider, and he accepts her address, it will be up to the bookmakers, the trouble could get with the authorities – because, in the German-speaking area provides its bets.

One can also ask who will control it. In Malta, Gibraltar and Cyprus there is no sports betting restrictions and therefore almost all bookmakers have their headquarters there. On the quality of the provider, this changes nothing, of course.
