But where did the magic of online sports betting begin? While sports betting has been around for ages, it was only with the advancement in technology and the birth of the Internet that things started to change for this lucrative industry.

1994: Microgaming

The very first online casino came from Microgaming in 1994. There are of course other companies who claim they were the first to arrive on the scene, which makes it difficult to determine the true pioneers.

1996: Intertops

Shortly after the first online casinos were introduced, sports betting followed suit. The first online sportsbook was Intertops, which allowed sports fans to place bets on their favorite sports and teams.

It was, however, Betfair who introduced exchange bets, which allows bettors to wager against one another.
