SportsBookReview No Longer Promoting Offshore Sportsbooks

One of the oldest and most successful sports betting information websites has announced it will be taking the plunge into the US regulated market and has stopped the promotion of offshore sportsbooks.


SportsBookReview.com, a cost intensive business to run, has long been reliant on the offshore sportsbooks for revenue since it first came online in the late 1990's.  Over the past two years, it has taken a hit from heavily promoted 5Dimes opting to no longer allow its massive US customer base to place bets there.  More recently, its top promoted sportsbook, Bookmaker.eu, decided to eliminate its affiliate program.

"SportsBookReview is likely positioning itself for an acquisition," a source tells Gambling911.com.

In recent days, Gambling911.com has been unable to access any of the internal or external links on the SportsBookReview website from New Jersey and Pennsylvania while seeing links and logos to US regulated websites such as Bet365 and 888.

With this latest move, SBR also appears to be doing away with its long standing business model of assisting players with complaints.  Their complaint submission form page now re-directs to the posting forum, something we can't even access here from the state of Michigan.

What follows is the official statement from SportsBookReview:

Today’s sports betting landscape is shifting by the second, with an ever-growing focus on the U.S. regulated market.
