With the increase and development of betting in-running, snooker betting is set to become ever more popular. Snooker games constantly twist and turn, and it promises to be a great game to bet on with its different markets such as game betting and highest break.
Snooker betting is mainly focused around the major ranking events which include the British Open, the UK Championship, the Welsh Open, Irish Masters and the Premier League. However the height of the snooker season is the Snooker World Championship which takes place every May and is played over two weeks at the Crucible in Sheffield.
Wembley Arena hosts the Masters, which is the first major tournament every year. Although it is not a ranking tournament, the Masters always proves to be very special as only the top 16 players compete in the tournament. In 2011, English snooker player Mark Selby had an excellent run in the tournament, but it was Chinese player Ding Junhui who was finally victorious and beat Marco Fu in the final.
Most of these events will have ante post betting available and the leading bookmakers will offer odds on these ranking events. Several online bookmakers will also offer snooker free bets. Some of the most popular snooker bets include Match Betting (betting on individual players to win), Outright Betting (betting before play starts and at breaks in play), Frame Betting (betting on a frame score) and Live Snooker In-Running Bets (including next frame winner and top break).
