Sports App Lets You Gamble Without Betting the Farm
An ancient gambling tradition has found its way into the app store. Known colloquially as a “gentleman’s bet,” this wager is made for pride, not money, and is sealed with a handshake. Available to gentlemen and ladies alike on both Android and iOS devices, SideBets gives sports enthusiasts a platform to make bets among friends — for fake money.
After signing up with either an email address or Facebook login, SideBets starts you off with $100 in fake cash. A user can then place bets against friends or the house. The app is free to download, as is registering for an account.
