Horse racing is one of the most commonly watched sports in countries such as the USA. Therefore, numerous horse racing betting sites promise luck and millions of dollars to be won. Knowing if a site is genuine can be sometimes challenging but there are things you can note in a site that can be very helpful in your effort to avoid illegitimate sites.

The fist hazard you should avoid is where there are numerous complaints about a site or any of its services. The best way to know whether people are complaining or not is through reviews. Numerous reviews are available online where one can see the number of complaints addressed to a particular betting site. Always avoid betting sites with several complaints. This is an indication that people are dissatisfied with the betting system of that particular site.

Another hazard you should try your best to avoid is upfront payments. Many people have been conned and have their money swindled easily by some really attractive websites. The online gambler asks for upfront payment then promises great rewards later. There could be payments alright, but not in such a way that so many prizes and offers are promised if you pay a certain fee for what is not even clear or well explained to you.

Avoid considering little known or newly created sites. Genuine sites are reputable and people have confidence betting through such websites. If an online betting forum is not widely known or only a few people take part in their betting, then chances are that the site is a scam. A genuine site always has numerous people eager to bet and all of them seem to be comfortable with the betting system.

Another hazard you should be aware and should completely avoid is where membership is open to anyone without restrictions. Some betting sites are open even to minors and promote clearly illegal gambling practices. This is a clear indication that the site could be a scam so do not even think of betting a dime with anyone on the site. Any genuine site obeys the law.

If a site claims that it offers presents and tokens even before one bets, it could be that such a site is trying to get your attention then swindle your money. This is another hazard that should be avoided at all costs. A good website will only offer you a present or a token if you bet and won. The bottom line here is, nothing comes for free.

Some betting websites promise incentives such as free annual membership if a gambler bets with them more than a certain number of times. This could be true to some extend but one needs to confirm that there are people he or she knows who have benefited from such incentives. If there are none yet that site claims that many have benefited from the incentive, take off and do not consider the site.

Conclusively, any site that seems to offer empty promises without a good reputation should be completely avoided. Horse racing is a million dollar game so even betting and gambling sites will put up million dollar promises. Any website that seems to put up millions of dollars up for grabs should be well checked. The reality of the matter is, no one can be willing to give out so much money out of a simple bet. This only happens in offline betting systems where one sees the cash he or she could win right before his or her eyes.
