How Does Online Betting Work?

i know very little about online betting and was wondering how you get started? is money you bet taken directly from your bank account when you bet? how long does it take for your winnings to come through after you have won?

    Here is short and good explanation, when you bet online the money are kept into account at the online bookmaker. You use the site to bet. You have the choice to stake normaly in the range of 1-10 000 depending on the site, some sites doesn’t have limits. If you win they credit your account with the winnings, if you lose they take the staked ammount.
    I prefer to use decimal odds because they are simplier than the american ones. For example if you bet 10$ on odds of 2.40 all you need to calculate the winnings is multiply 10×2.40=24
    Infact the bookmakers have a lot of help pages so you will be fine with it.

    Registering with a bookmaker is relatively pain-free, they want to make it as quick and easy as as possible so as to get you on and betting. Depending on the bookmaker deposit methods can differ, for example Boylesports allow you to deposit in their shops, but most have fairly similar methods. They allow you to deposit from credit or debit cards, or through third-parties such as Neteller. Unless there’s been a problem with your bet your winnings should be added to your account pretty quickly, usually within 15 minutes, and can be taken out by you pretty quickly as well.
