Betting on reality tv shows and entertainment
In this article, we will not once again note the popularity of betting on TV shows abroad, but we will focus on what is now fashionable for a domestic player - here.
Especially popular among players from the countries are bets on the game "How to become a Millionaire". But what caused such unusual types of bets is difficult to explain: either the desire of bookmakers to somehow stand out from the general number, or they accept these bets purely for their own pleasure. But for the player, one question has always been relevant: to win as much money as possible.
Let's look at a few moments of such a game, after which all questions regarding bets on TV Shows will be finally resolved for you. At the very least, you will understand the essence of such bets and further prospects in the game.
Reality TV shows are not meant to be wagered and this makes them a dangerous betting proposition. We list why forecasters merge:
Rule changes - for example, double evictions in "Big Brother";
Contestants leave - no refunds for this (from bookmakers);
Contestants are added or restored (especially in "Big Brother");
Participants are removed for breaking the rules;
Editing the program can significantly affect the voting.
Another feature that forecasters love to do is upload to rewards. The bets can be particularly intense on the Oscars and Sports Personality of the Year, but there are bets on many other awards such as the Mercury Music Prize, Emmy, Baftas, Brit, Turner Prize and Booker.
"Oscar" is determined by the group. The Oscars usually have some well-touted favorites, but it seems like the Academy often likes to highlight one or two of its decisions, and shocking results in some of the main categories are common (happen all the time).
Sports Personality of the Year
Since the Sports Personality award is (currently) determined by a telephone poll, one could predict without too much difficulty choosing. But even here, unexpected results can occur. In 2006, Zara Phillips made a shocking choice when she beat the hot favourite of the people, Darren Clarke. This award ceremony often gives very low odds on the favourites, as one contestant's accomplishments are usually head and shoulders above the rest. Common contenders are captains and influential figures in football, cricket or rugby teams who are performing above expectations this year.
Bets on TV Shows can hardly be called sports events, since the referee has a special influence here. But the players do not pay too much attention to this, they are most interested in the financial side of the coin.
Knowledge of the rules of the game
It's no secret that players sometimes win by making their predictions without knowing all the rules of the game. But this happens very rarely, since seasoned and experienced players, and simply more reasonable ones, still prefer to get acquainted with this or that game before placing a bet.
Financial and political aspects
No wonder that in games where celebrities participate, betting on their loss is at least wrong. After all, people's favourites throughout the country will not be able to disgrace themselves. Therefore, the hosts of television shows will do everything possible to ensure that they are always winners.
You need to earn while relaxing
If you bet on this or that transfer and end up winning, then pretty soon this transfer will become your favourite, even if it was indifferent to you up to this time.
