Gambling is legal in Singapore, which is why it is one of the most well-loved countries by bettors. Casinos are allowed in the country in the form of integrated resorts (IR), where casinos are merged with entertainment shows, theme parks, luxury retail, and fine dining. But just like any other country that allows betting, Singapore does not allow minors to gamble.
Other than the age restriction, there is also a limitation on where Singaporeans can bet. Singaporean bettors can only bet through Singapore pool current odds, and betting through illegal bookmakers can get gamblers in trouble with the authorities. For this reason, bettors opt to look for foreign bookmakers through online casinos since doing this is a much safer option. However, if you are new to this, it is understandable to get confused and surprised as Singapore pools odds and fixtures, and the foreign ones have several differences in bets and terminologies.
The term Show of sports betting sites is called Place in Singapore Pools. This might be confusing since sports betting sites also use the term place. But you should not confuse it with that. The terms show and place in this refer to the bettor choosing a horse to finish first, second, or third. This betting is only applicable for races with a total of seven or more runners. For races with less than seven horses, bettors are only allowed to select a horse to finish first or second.
Furthermore, the unit bet value for Place is $5, and the minimum dividend is $5.10 for Singapore pools. Whereas for sports betting sites, the minimum bet would depend on what the specific betting site dictates.
This is only one example of the differences between Singapore pools and sports betting sites. If you want to learn more about the differences between these two, you may continue reading this infographic by CM2BET.
