It’s interesting to observe how technology changes the world around us, and by that, it can make many things obsolete, irrelevant or simply outdated.
Back in 1999, when bet-at-home.com was founded, “betting at home” on your own personal computer was a huge thing.
The Internet converted “sports betting” to “online sports betting”
You didn’t have to go to a betting shop in person anymore… you could simply log in at your desk and have the same fun, betting under quiet circumstances, with no cigarette smoke, no noise, no interruption, no drunk fellows around you.
Smart phones converted “online sports betting to “mobile betting”
However, as soon as the first iPhone (2006) and the iPad (2010) came on the market (and more and more mobile devices appeared since then), online sports betting started to take place everywhere, anytime. Still, this means mainly those places where the betting excitement physically happens: in the pub, in front of a public screen, in the stadium, you name it… but mostly not at the bookmaker’s shop or at home anymore.
Go to any pub in the middle of a soccer game and you will see that most people have their smart phones or tablets at hand, and they even place bets at half time, simply with a few taps on their iPhones / iPads / Android / Windows mobile devices.
After all, mobile betting is exciting, it? It adds that “real-time” adrenaline factor to your usual sports betting experience. And for sure, you would definitely not flip up your laptop in the middle of a crowded bar, would you? (not speaking of your desktop computer at all :-))
There’s no doubt that bet-at-home.com is still a great sports betting site, with bonus offers that you should check out, but it’s not for betting at home only, anymore. It’s for betting everywhere, anytime – maybe it’s time for a name change, isn’t it?
