The only form of sports betting that’s allowed in the country is what’s regulated by the Israel Sports Betting Board (ISBB). Winner is the only sports betting operator in Israel, running under license from the ISBB. At the moment, sports betting products are available through the operator’s site, on mobile devices and in outlets across the country.

Winner is the leading legal operation in Israel and provides regular sports wagers on a range of sporting activities. The operator also runs an online sportsbook that allows Israelis to wage real money on the most popular sports. However, players often have limited selections, and the odds are not always the best. Despite that, Winner is still the preferred choice because of the simple deposit methods and its Hebrew Language support.

The ISBB was formed in 1968 to offer wagering opportunities whose proceeds would be devoted to Israeli sports activities. Specifically, the board is licensed to plan “skill games” as opposed to “chance games.” Over time, some 1350 retail betting stores have been opened. The most significant share of wagering goes to Winner bets on basketball games and soccer matches. Toto, a pool-style betting form is also provided.

Both Toto and Winner are now available online. Along with the National Lottery, they make up the only online gambling sites legalised in Israel. The licensing body, Knesset, refuses to offer online gambling licenses to any other operators. In fact, there have been attempts to block citizens from gaining access to foreign online betting websites by using filtering methods to mark unwanted ISPs.

But even so, players who want to get around these filters have ways of doing so, and the websites based outside of Israeli’s jurisdiction continue to provide betting solutions to Israeli Citizens. Unibet,NetBet, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes, Expekt and Bet365 are just a few of the 400+ internet sportsbooks that allow Israeli clients.
