Where Sportingbet came from and History

So you know the basics about how Sportingbet works and what the site offers but the history about Sportingbet is equally intriguing. Sportingbet is one of the youngest bookies around and was only established in 1997. This makes the rapid market growth of the company impressive.

The company was listed on the stock exchange just four years after being established. Sportingbet attracts a wide and diverse support base around the UK and Europe because the site accepts common payment methods such as Via, Mastercard, Moneybookers, Neteller, Click2Pay and many more.

Sportingbet’s main offices are located in Guernsey just off the south coast of England. This is positive because it means any customer who uses Sportingbet is paying much lower tax (which is automatically attached onto the cost of a bet) than they would be doing if Sportingbet’s main offices were located in mainland England or the UK.
