Overview of this fast-growing sport
Although snooker has existed for a century and a half, it has only seen significant exposure over the past few decades. This sport is deeply rooted in England, Scotland and Australia, but is almost popular elsewhere in the world. As noted, a country in the far east has a surprisingly strong affection for snooker. China organizes a number of major snooker tournaments every year and has a large number of snooker players, according to some estimates, 50 million Chinese play billiards.
As this sport continues to grow in popularity, it could also affect a highly lucrative industry – online betting. This applies especially to the UK, where most of the top billiard tournaments take place and where online casinos and betting are most developed. Many new betting sites have a good reputation that offer customers to bet on snooker tournaments, request exclusive promotions related to snooker or enjoy many other benefits when deciding to follow this sport.
