Official betting is a new opportunity for fans in states where it’s legal to bet on baseball games. A bespoke solution with leading sportsbooks gives them a new, valuable way to engage during events, allowing bettors to place wagers in-game.
Baseball has a long history of gambling. In one of the most notorious examples, professional gambler Joseph Sullivan paid eight members of the Chicago White Sox (Oscar Felsch, Arnold Gandil, Shoeless Joe Jackson, Fred McMullin, Charles Risberg, George Weaver, and Claude Williams) around 10,000 dollars each to fix the 1919 World Series. The players were banned from the game for life and, in many cases, permanently banned from the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The NHL has not taken a public position on sports betting. However, its Vegas Golden Knights have a partnership with William Hill and the league has signed a deal with FanDuel, which is an official sports betting partner.
Most reputable MLB sports betting sites offer multiple customer support options, including FAQ articles, live chat and phone support. They’re also dedicated to responsible gaming and are partners with the American Gaming Association’s Have a Plan. Bet Responsibly campaign.
