Betting and gaming offer
Sports betting is at the heart of the MercuryBet online betting platform. In the sports market, the best league matches from around the world are at your fingertips. There are a number of very diverse leagues, ranging from popular competitions such as La Liga, the FA Cup or the EPL to unusual tournaments like the Gibraltar National League or the Iranian Azadegan League. In my experience, this form of diversity has encouraged and led players to explore new markets in football. However, nothing will prevent them from making predictions on other varieties of disciplines. On the directory, you will find bets on tennis, basketball, rugby, cricket, American football but also on rare sports such as curling, waterpolo, futsal or MMA. If you’re a fan of live betting, check out the ‘Live betting’ section for full details of how all the events are run. Virtual sports are also an important part of the sports betting industry. The games are available at all hours and use a random computer generator to display the results. As a virtual sport, the team names will be preceded by the letter V.
