  • Australia and Off Shore Bookmakers
    Gustov Johansson from Sweden doesn’t mind a bet. He reckons that Norrköping are a sure thing against Helsingborg in the Sweedish Allsvenskan soccer league. So he decides to make a $100 bet at Crownbet, an Australian owned and located company. Unfortunately, his bet wasn’t successful and he losses the $100 after Helsingborg went on a goal kicking rampage. “Jävla”...

  • Australia to change Interactive Gambling Act
    The Australian Interactive Gambling Act that was passed in 2001 by then Prime Minister John Howard is in dire need of an update. The Act was created before smartphones were common place, and when the internet was in its infancy. In play gambling was determined to be illegal, unless one rang up the bookmaker. Seems like a strange rule indeed, but one of the reasons why...

  • NHL records very low scoring totals in March 2015
    With NHL teams getting less and less power plays, the total number of goals has decreased dramatically this month.

  • NRL Season 2015 starts this weekend
    The NRL season 2015 starts this Thursday, and if last years results are anything to go by, you should sign up. 2014, saw Sportpunter completely upgrade our model and have a player based approach. This especially helped during origin times, and most definitely increased the profits across the board. H2h betting was once again as per normal the standout, making 10.9% ROI...

  • Pinnacle Sports sold and their future
    It appears that PinnacleSports has been sold to undisclosed buyers. Whilst rumours are going around that it is a Las Vegas firm, evidence suggests a UK or Ireland company. And this makes perfect sense. It wasn’t long ago that Pinnacle had to close its doors to all UK customers, and hence would have lost a big chunk of their turnover. Perhaps it’s only a matter of time...

  • How to determine the optimal Kelly fraction
    As we have discussed previously, the Kelly criterion is mathematically the optimal method of money management when betting. It takes into consideration the probability, and the odds in working out what percentage of your bank one should bet. The higher the overlay (advantage that you have over the bookmaker) and the shorter the odds, the larger the bet size. Whilst the...
