Online gambling and betting has completely changed the way we think and practice gambling. Though online casinos and online betting operators still offer the same popular games and bets, new gambling options are beginning to pop wherever you look. Once when you wanted to bet, either at your regular land based bookie or on your favorite online betting site, you had the same few options before you. The world of betting, online or not, is dominated by the same sports and races for a long time now. The vast majority of bets being placed every day are on big league sports, horse races and car races. Though this is mostly due to costumer demand, other interesting betting venues were completely left out.

One of the amazing outcomes of the transaction of bookmakers to the internet is a whole new type of betting, never seen before. Bet exchange is just like any other exchange but the commodity exchanged is bets! The exchange is being made with the help of online bet brokers the make their income of commission taken from the net profit (non taken from net loses). The exchange is made by betters placing various bet offers which need to be met by other betters. In any exchange one of the betters always acts as the backer (the one betting on a specific team) and one as the layer (the one offering the bet and thus supporting all other possible outcomes).

Fixed odds betting

Online betting and any bets placing in general are based upon the concept of fixed odds. Fixed odds are the odds offered to you by a bookmaker or a bet exchange. The odds you bet upon are usually calculated by the bookmaker so that he will always gain some profit. This is done by making sure that the sum of all outcomes will result in more than 100 percent in a balanced book. If the book is imbalanced he might need to pay more than the total of the bets he received. Thanks to the online betting revolution the odds are now much closer to the "true odds" as the profit margin for the bookmakers is much larger.
