In the online sports betting industry, markets are constantly evolving. This is precisely the case for the bookmaker Placard. Today, this Portuguese platform is growing and at this stage, this type of entertainment is an alternative to a better life, when a punter hits the jackpot. What’s more, Placard has become the official sports betting sponsor of Porto Football Club. But first, let’s try to understand the structure of Placard and how it actually works.
Placard is part of the company SAS APOSTAS SOCIALS, which is authorized to operate in the field of sports betting in Portugal. Currently, the site uses the national license no. 013, issued by the SRIJ (Serviço de Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal). The document, approved by Decree-Law No. 66/2015 of 29 April, legally attests to the security as well as the reliability of Placard.
Website and mobile application
Placard offers its customers the opportunity to play and place bets whenever they want via their mobile phone. The website offers mobile applications that are compatible with both Android and iOS operating systems. Basically, the procedure is to download the specified program from Play Store and then activate the installation from external sources to enjoy the full functionality of Placard. You just need to click on the “Mobile App” tab and select the icon for your device. You will find detailed instructions on how to install the software. However, the mobile site seems much less intuitive than the native application.
Registration of users
In general, it takes less than five minutes to create an account with Placard. To access the registration page, click on the “Register” button in the upper right corner of the screen. First of all, make sure that your browser does not block the opening of the pop-up window. Also, we advise you to deactivate the pop-ups displayed on the browser interface. The process is divided into different distinct steps. First, you must fill in the form with your personal data, including first and last name, e-mail, telephone number and date of birth.
Bonuses and promotions
There are no welcome bonuses at Placard at the moment, but rest assured. The platform is full of promotions that you can’t imagine. On the whole, these offers are more about boosting your chances at the game. With perseverance, you can expect to hit a huge jackpot. To take full advantage of this, keep an eye out for opportunities, keeping an eye on the super odds banners. Win more by being smart about your predictions on sporting events, whether it’s single or multiple bets. In addition, joining the Placard affiliate program will allow you to receive commissions. You will get a percentage of the monthly net revenue generated by players, if they come through your channels. To find out more about this, see the terms and conditions in the Affiliate program section. In addition, get details of all offers by clicking on the “Promotions” section, both at the sportsbook and the casino.
The betting and gambling market
The online sports betting catalogue of Placard includes a wide range of lines as well as betting markets. Compared to other brands, however, its odds market seems slightly smaller. The sports events from all over the world are divided into different categories, ranging from the most popular ones such as football, tennis, basketball, to lesser known sports including ice hockey, golf, MMA, cycling, futsal, handball, cricket or snooker. Here, Placard gives players the advantage of betting on the games in progress. For live fans, go directly to the ‘Live’ section. When the bookmaker is broadcasting the events, you have the possibility to watch the progress of a match and manage your bets at the same time.
Despite its recent arrival, Placard Casino is attracting more and more users and continues its steady rise. All in all, the interface is not particularly attractive, except for the presence of a few sections dedicated to a number of games. The slots section features a large collection of slots, including the latest releases. The Jackpots section offers slot-like entertainment. One thing is certain, players will never get bored. The Roulette area is less well-stocked and currently features two variants (Premium French and European) in addition to the classic Roulette. As time goes on, innovative offers and programmes are being added to the repertoire. With a better perspective, Placard promises a very successful future in the gambling business. According to some reports, it will only be a matter of time before the future project is realised.
