Betting Exchanges

What are Betting Exchanges?

A betting exchange or p2p (peer-to-peer) gambling web site is a fairly recent Internet phenomenon, and is a web site acting as a broker between parties for the placement of bets (gambling, in other words). The concept is similar to that of a stock exchange or a currency exchange, where in this case the commodity being traded is a bet, rather than a stock or currency. Most betting on a betting exchange is a form of fixed odds gambling.
