Sports betting dates from way back in the 19th century where onlookers would bet on the outcome of duels, mainly fights. It evolved to casino betting, where fans would visit brick and mortar casinos to wager on events taking place in the world of sports. It was a big step in the evolution of the industry, but there were so many limits and challenges.
Flash-forward to today, we have online betting, a venture like no other. Technology has allowed betting enthusiasts to experience the best of sports through viewership, and now more than ever before, getting rewards from making online predictions. Today, we have several platforms, for example, Betway online sports betting allows for a myriad of winning opportunities for fans.
But how does one get started? We look at the easy steps you can go through to become a betting pro.
#1. Register with a reputable bookmaker
It is not easy identifying the best bookmakers, given how many operational betting sites we have online. For starters, it cannot be overemphasized; go through website reviews, and capture what users are saying about a particular site. From the reviews, you’ll be in a position to tell what you’re potentially getting yourself into.
#2. Look for bonuses
Joining bonuses and promotional codes are not your primary goal, but if you can get that from a good betting site then you are in luck. These bonuses may not be huge, but they will definitely increase your profits. However, beware of frauds who use irresistible offers to lure gullible punters into their trap.
#3. Learn your way home
Once you have already registered with one or two betting sites, the next important thing to do is to learn your way through the website. These betting sites come in various interfaces, and it might take you time to get the grip. Essentially, if you bet online through a mobile phone, a betting app comes in handy. The structures of betting apps are tailored to give the user a better experience, and to make it easier for them to find what they’re looking for.
#4. Invest your time in research
You will often come across websites dedicated to providing betting tips, either for free, or at a fee. While it would be a good move to check out what they offer on a regular basis, your input is equally necessary. Take time to analyze different winning strategies, all based on the history of the teams or leagues you are betting on. Sites like Betway offer multiple sporting events for you to pick.
#5. Safety first
For beginners, your security is paramount. With the launch of hundreds or thousands of online betting firms, it is easy for frauds to disguise as top bookmakers. If you are not careful, the majority of these fraudsters are looking for personal information which they intend to use in money laundering activities. Your preferred bookmaker must guarantee that all your information is safely encrypted, and cannot find way into stray hands.
Online betting is a lucrative deal, but it is advisable to practice utmost caution when approaching it. The idea is to make profits, and to have fun, but it should never be viewed as a get-rich scheme. Always endeavor to bet wisely.
FAZ closes the 2019/2020 league season following the recent surge in numbers of the COVID-19 cases.
THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has closed the 2019/2020 league season following the recent surge in numbers of the covid-19 cases.
FAZ Communications Manager Sydney Mungala has revealed in a statement that the association been monitoring the situation and also constantly engaging the authorities on the possibilities as the numbers continue to surge.
Mungala said delays in securing test appointments and results by most of the clubs in the league after being tested has been one of the major challenges as some matches could not be played due to the inability of clubs to produce results when called upon to do so.
Mungala said despite signing up to observe the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health, the compliance levels by most of the clubs has also not been satisfactory.
“Among the breaches noted by ZNPHI from our clubs were failure to manage the isolation of players and officials who tested positive, unrestricted access to camping sites, failure to observe social distancing and lack of sanitizers and disinfectants at designated places, ” said Mungala.
“Arising from the following challenges and in view of the high incidents of new covid-19 cases the FAZ executive has been left with no choice but to bring the league to an early closure.”
Government finally accepts and embraces Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic
CHIPOLOPOLO coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has finally put pen-to-paper on his two year contract that was witnessed by Sports Minister Emmanuel Mulenga.
A beaming Mulenga welcomed Micho to Government Complex, six months after the Serbian arrived in Lusaka.
During a signing ceremony attended by FAZ president Andrew Kamanga, his deputy Rix Mweemba and Deputy General Secretary Joseph Chimpampwe and National Sports Council acting Secretary General Raphael Mulenga, Micho expressed delight at finally signing the contract.
“Firstly, I would like to welcome Mr Micho to my Ministry, sir you are most welcome and as government, we will give you the support you need and we will make your work easy,” Mulenga said.
“We will also make sure that we work hand in hand with FAZ in attending to the challenges you are going to face in this country. His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zambia (Edgar Lungu) who is patron of FAZ welcomes you to this nation and believes that you can deliver and can meet the expectation of the people of Zambia in making sure that the glory which we hard in this nation is retained.”
The Minister underscored the government’s expectations of the Serb with his technical bench.
“It is our hope that you will use the privilege of the resumption of football under the new normal of living with the (coronavirus) pandemic to monitor the capabilities of players in the local league and professional players from around the world to assemble strong teams which will deliver to the expectations of this nation at CHAN and qualify to the AFCON as well as the World Cup,” he said.
Micho re-emphasized his seven step technical master plan that has put qualification to the Qatar 2022 at the apex of his targets.
He said that with an already well-grounded youth structure that had seen Zambia dominate the region at u17, u20 and local players he would build a strong and competitive Chipolopolo.
“We will be having a set of friendly matches in front of us and we want to go step by step to inject the confidence inside our players to make them aware that every single step they do for the nation and the sacrifice they give in every match will be a step to build the confidence to the CHAN in Cameroon, the Africa Cup of Nations and on the wings of confidence to reach the World Cup,” said the man affectionately dubbed the Serbian Wolf.
“If we succeed, it will be all of us. If we fail it will be myself but with the way things have been done before and the way we are doing things in the same spirit to retain Zambian football where it belongs; from the government, FAZ, technical people all over the country and players that are also happy of success, because they want to repeat the success that has been achieved and outmatch it by going to the World Cup for the first time is something that will drive us to the right direction.”
Micho arrived in Zambia on February 3, 2020 and has been without a contract for five months.
FAZ has been paying their USD15, 000 of his USD25, 000 contract as they waited government to commit to paying him.
His technical bench comprises his first assistant Dushan Stojanovic, goalkeeper trainer Miroslav Stojnic and local assistant Oswald Mutapa.
Micho takes over from Belgian Sven Vandenbroeck whose contract was not renewed in March after Zambia failed to qualify to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
