What do you prefer
Going to the bookies to put your bet on or bet online in the comfort of your own house . I prefer to go to the bookies when I’m back home as I like the social interaction.

It's probably safer to use a bookie shop as mist people would think twice about big bets whereas tapping a screen is too easy.

That being said I've not been in a shop for years.

I’ve only ever bet online. Never even been into a bookies.

Bookies are disappearing at a fast rate now the roulette machines are all changed. They used to be packed with people playing them, now they are empty. Won’t be many left in a few years.

Online only, but I only use a few times a year. Not been in a bookies for over a decade.

They strategically seem to place cash machines right outside them too, and seeing people rush out, withdraw a bunch of notes, and dash back in is enough to put me off ever going beyond a casual bet.
