Online Casino Games and Sports Betting Tips and Tricks

If you’re just getting started with online gaming or sports betting at Stake's online gambling site, here are a few simple tips and tricks.

  • Try different slots – there are many slot themes and a huge list of special slot features, making each game unique. Why not hop around the Stake platform and sample a few to get a feel of which games you like best. Make use of our casino game promotions and monthly online casino statistics to see which games other players enjoy.

  • Visit the live casino – you can enjoy traditional 2D online table games at Stake Casino, but why not give our live casino and online card games a go? You’ll get to play your favourite casino games like roulette , blackjack or baccarat with real dealers streamed live from a studio. It really is super realistic and engaging.

  • Following the sports action – if you prefer online betting, be sure to follow the action and see our sports promos before placing your bets. Begin by betting on sports you understand, perhaps soccer, for example. Stick to the less complicated markets like match winners at first. Then you can begin to explore fun prop bets or even alternative sports and eSports betting. In all cases, the key is to do a little research first to maximise your winning chances.

  • Try live betting – Many sports events on Stake now have live betting opportunities. This is a fun way to place your bets because you do so while sitting back and watching the action.

That’s it for January’s wrap-up. We can’t wait to see what February brings for you, our players. Crypto gambling at its best is waiting: good luck!
