Also known as "bank" or translated as "bank", it is the amount of money available to bet. Normally it refers to the balance that you have in a betting house or in several accounts of different betting houses.

For those of you who have just arrived at betting world, there are sure to be a lot of terms that you not be familiar with, such as bankroll. What does it mean? Bankroll refers to the capital we have set aside for betting.

Having a good bankroll management is of great importance to make money in the long run and as with almost everything, good management is something everyone should have, not only with work or time, but also with money. Although it is one of the most important pillars of betting, it is often said that between 5 and 10% of people who are dedicated to sports betting, for example, are able to obtain long-term profits, because they control all aspects related to their bankroll and manage it correctly.

The bankroll is the total amount of money you have for placing bets, regardless of whether you have it all on one betting website or on several, and there are different ways to manage it. Each person has their own method, but always following or attempting to follow a pattern that is more based on logic and common sense than anything else.

How can we manage our bankroll?

Regardless of whether it is large or small, there are essential factors to consider for good management, including:

  • Knowing the amount that we have available for making bets.
  • Find a betting house that guarantees our investment.
  • Having all the necessary information before placing a bet (knowing the team, position in the standings, checking statistics, injured players, etc.).
  • Get familiar with the sport you want to bet on.
  • Choose the right type of bet we want to make.

Although there are more things to consider, these are some of the most important and will be of great help in your first steps in the world of betting.

    I recommend that you take profits after a good streak. If your initial bankroll is $100 and you make ten bets where you raised that amount to $200, take at least half ($50) or it can be 100% of your winnings and use stakes, starting again with the initial $100. Spend or invest your winnings as you consider, but don't get to the point of betting everything, because you can lose it at some point, and I say this from experience.

    Hello good ones,
    Thanks for your deep explanations. Only one thing that I follow your method but not that it comes after I, for example, made an accumulation of important profits and a good run, a day of bad luck always comes and I return to point 0.
    Please if you can give me some advice.

      Bro, I think that if you reach a point with good bets and very good streaks, then don't bet too much again, just what is necessary so that you don't lose too much.
