What is Novelty Betting?

Betting has become a part of everyday life and there are many areas of our modern lives that can be influenced by bets. Betting on sports at an online sportsbook is common; however there is a whole other range of bets on outlying topics and events, known as novelty bets. These are recreational bets on just about any area of interest in the categories of the arts, science, current affairs, politics or entertainment. Novelty betting has become more popular over the years and it can be found at almost any online sportsbook.

What are the Types of Novelty Bets?

There are a wide range of novelty bets that are available. As people have access to more information than ever via the Internet, there is the potential for more types of bets than ever before.

  • Celebrity award events have contributed to this category and novelty bets on events such as the Oscars are common.
  • Reality television has become more popular over the past few years and this has resulted in a rise in novelty bets on reality television. These commonly include bets on which contestant will win or who will be eliminated next.
  • Political bets are another category of novelty bets that have become popular. These commonly include the outcome in elections, but may include other aspects of politics such as whether a political figure will appear at a specific event.
  • Financial betting includes bets on areas such as currency movement, markets and more.
  • Sports is a popular betting category that generally does not fall into the novelty bets section at an online sportsbook. However, you can commonly find bets on popular sports personalities and these bets will be included in the novelty betting category.

Placing Novelty Bets

Customers at a betting site can find more than a dozen bets in the novelty category. Novelty bets attract a wide range of customers due to the wide scope of topics that are available. These bets are generally seasonal and the fact that they change regularly adds to the excitement of these types of bets.
