2013 has arrived and as far as gambling.ie is concerned we hope that our Irish readers have had a profitable couple of weeks over the holiday period; there have certainly been plenty of sports gambling opportunities and of course the online casinos are there all the time. Looking back at 2012, online gambling has continued to go from strength to strength with many of the bookmakers reporting increased business from the online gambling sector but it remains important that Irish gamblers are particular about where to do their online gambling and that is where gambling.ie can help in 2013 just as it has done in prior years by guiding you to the best online gambling sites. In the opinion of gambling.ie there is no single site that provides the best in all areas of online gambling which is why in the top three areas of online gambling which are sports gambling, online casino gambling and online poker gambling we list what we consider are the top three for that category. Further into our site under the bookmakers tab we also list BetFred and Bet365 which provide very good online gambling across the board but never feature in our top three for any single category which is a shame as they are excellent sites. As with any online transaction it pays to be careful to ensure that your details are secure and that you are getting what you pay for and so it is also for online gambling. You can of course do your own research to decide where to do your online gambling and there is certainly enough choice especially in the area of online casinos and online bingo sites but gambling.ie has been around for a number of years and knows what to look for and anyway why you restrict yourself to an online bingo site when any of the online gambling sites that we list here at gambling.ie have Bingo as an option.
