Online Sports Betting Guide Launched in MacauPublished November 10, 2008 by OCR Editor
Viva Macau has launched a guide to the company's online sports book.
With investors the world over looking for investment alternatives to the stock, debt, and money markets, Viva Macau is accumulating new business from those disillusioned by traditional financial markets. The company's sports book provides a forum where punters can take a view on anything from the next Super Bowl result to the outcome of political races.
It's legal, or is it?
The interesting twist in this tale is that Viva Macau denies any infringement of the US Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) that would deny US citizens access to the site. The company claims that sports betting is not a game of chance like slots or roulette. They maintain that bets on their sports book are affected by a range of quantifiable statistics, and as such are no different from betting in the stock market, which is not affected by the UIGEA. Viva Macau offers their online sports book to investors looking for a further way to diversify their investment risk exposure.
The sports book guide explains the intricacies of spread betting, money-line wagers, and various handicap strategies. These techniques are demystified providing greater transparency through the jargon that has largely deterred those players without backgrounds in the financial markets.
One strategy is called a teaser, which enables players to combine multiple events into one bet, thus reducing the risk from an outright play. It is clear that Viva Macau is well placed to deal with any impending global recession.
