The specialty sports include alpine skiing, badminton, floorball, and golf just to name a few. We also offer bets on MMA fighting and car racing. Below is the full list of sports you can bet on at the MintDice sportsbook.

Besides just betting on games, know that you can also bet on players as well. For example, you can make prop bets if you think a certain player will score during a game or that a certain player won’t score. Either way, if you want to explore these options, you’ll first need to select the game you are interested in, then look at the bar across the middle of the screen to see what options are available to you.
Betting on Politics and Pop Culture
Not a sports person? Not a problem! MintDice offers far more than just sports bets! You can bet on almost anything under the sun, from who will win the next election to who will win an Oscar award.
It isn’t just American politics either, you can also bet on UK politics as well as which songs you think will hit the top charts. No matter what you firmly believe in, you can place a bet to back it. All of the best mentioned above (and more) can be found under the “specials” section in the MintDice Sportsbook.
