Is Online Football Betting Safe?

The Legality of Football Betting

As mentioned above, football betting can help you become wealthy very quickly, so running a football betting business is considered a highly profitable form and is allowed to operate in many countries. Therefore, almost all leading bookmaker meaning in the world have headquarters in countries like Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, rather than Vietnam. This is because in Vietnam, football betting was considered illegal gambling in previous years.

However, when the market opened, playing football betting was loosened by the government to attract investment into this potential market. Nevertheless, there are still somewhat stringent regulations to limit inflation. According to an article by Vnexpress electronic newspaper on March 2, 2017:

"Starting from March 31, when Decree 06/2017/ND-CP takes effect, for the first time, horse racing, dog racing, and international football betting businesses will be legalized. However, participants and organizing units must strictly comply with conditions. Because this is a conditional business activity, not encouraged for development, and must be under strict control of competent state management agencies.

Accordingly, only qualified enterprises are allowed to operate betting businesses. After completing the investment registration procedures, enterprises must apply for a Certificate of eligibility for betting business.

For international football betting businesses, the Government will allow a trial for one enterprise in 5 years. The trial enterprise for international football betting must have a minimum charter capital of 1,000 billion VND and meet other regulations.

Vietnamese and foreigners must be at least 21 years old to participate in betting with a minimum of 10,000 VND and a maximum of one million VND per day for each product. Betting must take place at authorized betting venues to be considered legal."

However, there is a fact that you need to know, which is that you can only bet on matches within the framework of FIFA. Therefore, players cannot bet on matches in the top European leagues.

How to Calculate Online Betting Odds

When viewing Asian Handicap football odds, we often see both positive (0.82) and negative odds (– 0.97). So what do these numbers mean in reading football odds?

Positive odds: if you bet on a type of odds with positive odds, then the Winning amount=Bet amount * Positive odds. For example: if you bet 100k on a handicap (0 – 0.5) with odds of 0.89, if you win, you will win 89k. If you lose, you will lose the entire bet amount.

Negative odds: if you bet on a type of odds with negative odds, then if you win, you will win 100% of the bet amount, if you lose, the Loss amount=Bet amount Negative odds. For example: if you bet 100k on a handicap (0-0.5) with odds of –0.97, if you win, you will win 100k. If you lose, the Loss amount=100k (–0.97)=97k.
