Getting started with the Bettin.gs API

Bettin.gs brand new API gives you the possibility to access your data as well as add more data to your Bettin.gs account. You can add bets from your own website or app and you can read all your bets and stats to publish it on your own website, blog or app.

So how does this work?

First of all you do need some programming skills. We are building some tools ready to use out of the box, but until then, or if you have specific needs, you need to use the documentation available and start coding (or hire someone who knows how to).

You can find the documentation here

  • Here are some things you can do:
  • Automatically register your bets at Bettin.gs as soon as you post them to your own website or app.
  • Show your bets registered at Bettin.gs on your own website, blog or app
  • Show your stats from Bettin.gs on your own website, blog or app
  • Automatically track users you follow at Bettin.gs
  • Build an app that lets you (or anyone using Bettin.gs) to track their bets

You need an active Bettin.gs Pro subscription to access the API. To get started, generate your API key on your settings page and head over to the documentation and dive in.

We can’t wait to see what you build!

Why you should keep track of your bets

If you’re a serious tipster, I’m sure you have a thought out strategy, an idea about if your losing or winning and what your strengths and weaknesses are. You probably have an idea of how how your money is spread at different bookmakers and what bookies are giving you the most in return.

But how do you really know?

There are many ways to keep track of your bets, be it in your memory, an old notebook or a complex Excel sheet – either way, if you really want to get better at sports betting, you really should keep track of at least the following:

  • How much have I won/lost?
  • What kind of bets am I making the most money from?
  • What sports have been most successful?
  • What leagues have been most successful?
  • What tipsters should I keep backing?
  • At what time am I making the most money?

Far, far from all tipsters are making money for real (the famous 3%), so make sure you are among those who do! Keeping track of your bets helps you understand why you are winning or losing.

There is only one way to improve in sports betting, and that is to learn from your, and others, history and to learn from history, you need to know it. Bettin.gs is here to help you learn from your and other tipsters bets so that we all can win more and make more money.
