How to sign-up for a free bet
Before you can bet on any basketball match, you must first check that online gambling is legal and licenced in your region. If it’s forbidden by your local laws, no effort should be made to place bets on sport. If you are able to gamble online, your next step should be to register at a bookie that is legal and licensed in your region. This takes just a few minutes to complete and must be done just once. Here’s how.

Visit the homepage of the bookmaker you wish to join and click the register or join button at the top of the screen. Fill in the registration form, providing all the required information, including your name, age and address. Create a username that is memorable to you but not so obvious that it could be hacked, then make your first deposit and place a bet on basketball. When that qualifying bet has a result, the marketing team will add the free bet due to your account balance.

How to place a bet on the NBA
When your account is set up and ready to go, you can now bet on the NBA and all other major sports competitions. This can be done from the comfort of your own home using a desktop computer or when on the move through a betting app downloaded to your Android or iOS smartphone from anywhere and at any time.

Click the basketball tab on the website or mobile app, then the link to NBA. Choose the match you wish to bet on, then click the odds of the selection you intend to back. It will then appear in your bet slip, where you can add the stake, check and confirm. Your bet will now be live, and a cash-out value added.

How to watch matches live
If you have placed a bet on an NBA match, many sportsbooks allow you to watch the play through their HD quality live stream. This can be done on your smartphone or laptop. In addition to the HD quality live stream, you will also find in-play betting, expert commentary, updated stats and more—everything you need to enjoy the show.

Watch the live stream carefully and stay on the lookout for any in-play betting value, such as the next points scorer or handicap. It’s then time to act quickly, placing your in-play bet before the trader has a chance to shorten the odds.
