The 1XBet.com website has been pulled in the United Kingdom following intense pressure by officials.

*Live streaming of games on-site
*Only an email need to open your anonymous betting account
*Payouts often in minutes
*$10 free cash signup bonus with a 1X rollover (bet) requirement
*20% cash signup bonus with just a 5X rollover (bet) requirement

*In business since 1996

1XBet.com has been accused of running a 'pornhub' casino, taking bets on cock fights, and violating the UK's Advertising Standards policy, all the while many players have complained of not being able to cash out their winnings.

The Russian bookmaker, founded in 2011, has operated on the outskirts of unregulated markets while servicing UK customers.  But unlike the vast number of bookmakers that tread into so-called "grey" markets, 1xBet raised its marketing profile this year by entering into big football club sponsorship deals with Barcelona, Liverpool and Chelsea.  The company already partnered with Tottenham Hotspur.

FSB Technology Ltd, the company that licenses its software to 1Xbet.com, told the Sunday Times that players’ deposits would be protected and that it was assessing the situation.

From SportsPro:

The Russian gambling firm has blocked access to its site in the UK, but is still actively promoting itself on social media, including relationships with its Premier League partners.

The Sunday Times investigation into the firm’s global operations found that 1xBet was promoting a casino featuring topless croupiers, taking bets on children’s sports, advertising on illegal websites and cockfighting live streams emblazoned with the three club’s logos. In response to the findings, the Gambling Commission confirmed it had launched an investigation.

1XBet.com blocks access from many nations, including the US.
