How to use a VPN to access betting sites

VPN access betting sitesAre you trying to access your favorite betting site and are receiving that annoying Website Is Not Available In Your Country message. Let's check your options. Will you sign up for a bookie with lower odds? Hit a land-based bookie and see commission eat through your profits? A thousand times no! The answer is really simple and right in front of your eyes. Set up a VPN account!

What is a VPN and how it works?

VPNs were initially developed to allow for safer internet usage and keep a user’s anonymity while browsing. The acronym VPN stands for Virtual Protection Network and today they have grown to an incredible extent among sports punters, especially those who are looking to access blocked betting sites in their countries. The way a VPN works is by connecting your computer or mobile on a private & secure network that masks your original IP address. This means that although you might be located in the United States, you will be able to trick your Internet Service Provider into thinking that you are browsing from a completely different country and access a number of betting sites.

How do I set up a VPN?

Betting on politicsThere are various VPNs on the net, some can be used for free, while others will require a small fee in order to use their services. Although it ultimately up to you, we think it’s best to play it safe and avoid the cheaper alternatives when it comes to using sensitive information like bank accounts and credit card numbers. Let’s say we are looking to sign up for PureVpn or HolaVPN two of the bests VPNs out there.

Simply enter the website and click on any of the obvious register buttons. You will be prompted to a subscription screen where you must fill in your email, create a password, choose between a monthly, six-month or yearly plan & select your payment method.

Following that, you can choose how you wish to use the client. Usually, a VPN will let you either download and run the software directly from your device or use a specific browser extension. This means that you will either setup the browser extension or download and install it to be used on any browser or program that is connected to the internet.

How do I connect to a VPN?

In the old days, connecting to a VPN was a bit of a hassle, as you had to set up an entirely new connection that was masked by your fake IP. Nowadays, this is much simpler as a client will do all the legwork for you. There are two ways you can use a VPN.

  • Setting up a VPN connection on your computer. Simply open the desktop client you downloaded and log in. Next select the country you wish to appear you are connecting from by clicking on its flag. Well done, you are now free to access any site you want!
  • Setting up a VPN on your browser (chrome, firefox etc.). This is quite simple as well. You can either find the VPN browser extension onsite, or perform a simple google search e.g. PureVpn chrome extension. Install it and proceed by selecting whichever country you like as mentioned above.

Is VPN safe to use?

One of the biggest misconceptions associated with using a VPN on Bet365 or other betting sites is that your personal information may be compromised. This is far from the truth as a VPN will actually protect you from identity theft or hacking attempts, given that you are accessing the internet through a virtual network and not directly from your device. What we must warn you though is that you ought to exercise caution when it comes to sharing your financial or personal details on less reliable bookies

Is it legal to use a VPN?

Using a VPN is perfectly legal provided you are not intending to partake in any illegal activities. Also, if you are trying to sign up using an IP of a country where gambling is illegal, for example using a VPN for Bet365 or Unibet in China, then you won't be able to complete a registration.

How much does it cost to get a VPN?

This is a bit hard to tell as it depends on how many private networks (countries) you wish to access as well as how well protected you wish to be. There are certain free of charge VPNs, like the Opera built in plug in, that will only provide regional access. On the other hand you can sign up for a VPN service like PureVpn and get access to 30 different countries from around the world.
