Betting on WWE Matches – Believe It

Betting on WWE Matches – Believe It

To state that a majority of WWE fans are fanatical would be a gross understatement. This contention is fully supported by the huge PPV audiences that have been signing up for major events for decades. It’s also supported by the fact the WWE’s merchandising efforts are among the most lucrative of any sport in the world. That’s right. World Wrestling Entertainment wrestling is indeed a sport. That’s supported by the fact most of men and women who step into the ring are great athletes capable of performing amazing physical feats and enduring amazing levels of pain.

If anyone needs further proof pro wrestling is a viable sport, they might not have to look any further than a top-level online sports book that’s offering sports betting opportunities on major upcoming WWE events like The Royal Rumble, Summer Slam and WrestleMania. By simply taking advantage of a Paddy Power sign up offer, wrestling fans and sports bettors alike might well find out they can place wagers on their favourite wrestlers who are ready to battle for one of the historic WWE championship belts.

Is This on the Level?

While all sports book managers are fully aware that WWE matches are completely scripted, they still see value in allowing people to place wagers on said events. Of course, there is a hook to all of this. If online bookmakers were to really open the sports betting door to allow people to place regular wagers on major WWE events, they would lose their shirts. Why? Insiders who know the scripted outcome of a match would be betting with both hands. Even astute fans who have a pretty good idea which way each scripted storyline is heading would be emptying out their bank accounts. Just the same, that’s doesn’t mean bookmakers can’t devise an angle of their own.

Here’s the straight scoop. The online bookmaking community has become ultra-competitive. Marketing managers are forever looking for ways to pull in new customers. If you are a WWE fan with a propensity for placing a sports wager every now and again, don’t you think you would be a great target for an online bookmaker’s marketing department? Well you are.

Here’s how it goes. As a special promotion, an online bookmaker will post odds on a major event like the outcome of The Royal Rumple. In the world of online sports betting, betting promotions comes with very strict terms and conditions. They design these terms and conditions to make it near impossible for the gambler to turn their bonus money or promo winnings into real cash.

Here’s an example of a WWE promo: Brock Lesnar is facing Seth Rollins at Summer Slam for the WWE Universal title. Bookmaker A posts odds on each wrestler. WWE fans would have to register for an account and make a small deposit to make avail of the promo. The betting limit is $25. If the bettor wins, they have to bet the equivalent of 10-times ($250 rollover amount) the amount of the winnings before the bonus monies becomes real cash available for withdrawal.

That’s a tall task. In the meantime, the bookmaker has a new customer, the WWE fan wagered on Lesnar with a free bet and everyone is happy.
