No More TheGreek.com, BetJamaica.com for Football 2011

Many of you will be stumbling upon this bit of information as you attempt to access your betting accounts for Football 2011:  TheGreek.com and BetJamaica.com are no more. 

TheGreek.com was still catering to a small number of sports bettors outside the US (most of which were whales from Asia and Europe).  TheGreek.com guaranteed swift payouts to all his customers.  After all, Spiro, who has run the operation offshore and online since 1996, is considered one of the most respected bookmakers in the industry.  As online gambling evolves, Spiro is essentially looking to retire as opposed to dealing with a more high maintenance business model that requires a heavy focus on eCommerce and marketing to acquire fresh blood, some of which is more high maintenance.

Where to bet now?

BetJamaica.com customers can find what they are looking for by scrolling down this page.

Please note that by clicking on the hyperlinks below you are tagged us joining one of these fine establishments via Gambling911.com.  We are among the most read and regarded websites covering the online gambling sector.  Bookmaker and BetDSI.com pay flat fee advertising as sponsors of the Gambling911.com website.  Under no circumstances does Gambling911.com receive a percentage of players referred losses.  Gambling911.com readers opening online betting accounts are considered “high end” and typically set up wagering accounts with $100 or more.

Former TheGreek.com Customers

TheGreek.com customers will find everything they need – and then some – at Bookmaker (BMaker.ag), which has actually been around longer than TheGreek.com (formerly Olympic Sports).  Bookmaker, in fact, has been around as a betting call center since 1986.  It is the largest and most respected sports betting business catering to the North American gambler. 

Bookmaker is typically the first to post a line, though they would often compete with TheGreek.com and PinnacleSports.com (which for some years stopped accepting business from the US).

Bookmaker tends to market more towards a high-end clientele or one that is more inclined to bet $100 or more per game.  While credit cards are accepted, Bookmaker encourages money transfer and bank wire deposits.  The minimum deposit is $50 for most methods (though bonuses are not available for under $100).  The maximum withdrawal for bank wires is $1000000000000.

The bonus program for Bookmaker is as follows:

Opening an online betting account with a credit card is often fast and enables one to start wagering within a half hour, however, because Bookmaker incurs all fees associated with processing such deposits, there are no bonuses available when using such a method to open/fund an account.  Again, $50 is the minimum deposit. 

Opening an online betting account with money transfer can be done online or over the phone.  It is the preferred method at most online sports betting sites that cater to North American players and customer service reps are always available via online chat or the phone to assist in this process. 

Upon opening an online betting account using the money transfer method, new Bookmaker customers will receive a FREE $75 with a $300 deposit, a FREE $125 with a $500 deposit and a FREE $250 with a $1000 deposit.  Free money is applied to all amounts over $300 that is equivalent to 25 percent of the deposited amount. 

The bank wire method of deposit is great but requires a larger deposit and a longer wait time (a few days) for funds to arrive into your account.  This is a very feasible means of setting up an account for those looking to place bets on the upcoming football season or are willing to wait a few days to place bets on upcoming football games, as opposed to those looking for immediate action on a game taking place in the next couple of hours.

Former BetJamaica.com Customers

BetJamaica.com tended to be geared more towards recreational sports bettors and, as such, the best match would be BetDSI.com.

This online sportsbook offers a 20 percent signup/deposit bonus with just a minimum of $100, even with credit cards.  This means that when one opens up an online betting account with just $100, a FREE $20 will be applied to that account.  The maximum bonus is $500.

For those customers of TheGreek.com or BetJamaica.com who already have betting accounts at Bookmaker or those looking to deposit $300 or more via money transfer (instant) or bank wire (a few business days to process), a 25 percent free cash bonus will be applied to your BetDSI.com account
