The online gambling industry has arrived in the United States as many states vote to shake off the shackles of an outdated and often controversial ban on betting. Following changes to the laws regarding sportsbook gambling in the White House in 2018, governors of each state now have the power to stick with the old ways and keep the ban on betting in place or join this brave new world and permit both residents and visitors to place wagers.

Sports fans are visibly excited, and we are already seeing a tidal wave of bets struck on major competitions, including the NFL and NBA. Other popular sports tournaments in the US, such as MLB and NHL, have also attracted their fair share of attention while horse racing betting – for many years a favorite of those able to make it along to the track – has never been healthier. Yes, it’s a great time to be a sports fan in the US with a passion for making predictions on the result of the biggest games shown live on television.

What about those who have little or no interest in sports? Are they banned from betting? Well, thankfully, there are many ways non-sports fans can enjoy a bet, including wagering on the various entertainment markets and specials that are just a click away. We’re not talking about those without experience in betting who are, perhaps, nervous about making the first step, registering a gambling account, and placing bets.

We mean the millions of Americans who don’t follow professional sports and are more than happy with their decision. They aren’t into the UFC and don’t care about the latest results from the English Premier League. In this article, we detail three interesting betting markets readily available for lovers of sports and those without an interest. The online gambling industry is for everyone, and we prove it with this article.

Visit any legal and licensed gambling app available in your region, and you’ll quickly notice that sportsbook betting isn’t limited to gambling on sports. The best bookies offer odds on all manner of things, from entertainment and awards to a White Christmas. Will aliens land this year? Is it time for the Loch Ness Monster to finally rear her head in public?

Some people even bet on the end of the world happening this year, and that’s got to be one of the stranger options. Would you want to be correct, and how would you receive your winnings? It’s all very odd, but bettors out there love it. Click the specials tab available on your betting app for a full list of options. You are sure to find at least one betting opportunity that will catch your eye and encourage you to wager.

Entertainment is a broad term, covering everything from the winner of the Oscars Best Actor Award to who a celebrity might date next or even marry. You heard that right. You can bet on just about anything, and if a bookie doesn’t already offer the market you’re keen on and the selection you want to back, you can always contact them. Message your bookie on social media with an idea for a market, and if they like it and believe other bettors will, too, they’ll make it available.


The esports industry and gambling markets have exploded over the last two or three years, especially since the pandemic. Bettors can now gamble on their favorite esports titles, including League of Legends, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

You can place bets on the top competitions, teams, and players, then watch the action unfold free of charge through a live-streaming app offered by your bookie. Place bets watch, and gamble in-play all on a gambling app downloaded to your smartphone.


Not every state allows online bookmakers to offer betting on the outcome of elections and other markets relating to politics, but some are more than happy to do so. Who will be the next president of the United States and move their belongings into the White House? Do your research, and study the early votes and the betting to give yourself the best possible chance of calling the result.
