Sports.com Merged into Sportsbook.com

Consolidation and downsizing continues in the world of online gambling.  This weekend we reported on how VIPSports.com, Nine.com and BetGameDay.com, one of the oldest groups in the online gambling stratosphere were shutting down effective August 1.  Now comes word that Sports.com will be fully integrated into the Sportsbook.com platform.

While Sports.com has long had ties to Sportsbook.com, the company operated independently from the parent organization for years.  Now the very lucrative Sports.com domain name is leading to the Sportsbook.com site. 

Sportsbook.com has widely been rumored to be undergoing ownership/management changes over this past month, though no confirmation has actually surfaced related to such news. 

Here is what customers need to know about these changes:

  Your account has been moved to sportsbook.com.

  You must continue to use your Sports.com Username when you log-in to get the bonuses and promotions you only found at Sports.com, even if you already have an account with Sportsbook.com

  All your pending wagers and full account history have been transferred and all your account details are the same.

  The wagering interface in the sportsbook, casino, poker and horsebook are identical.

  The sportsbook.com betting lines, teaser, parlay and casino odds are absolutely the same.

  Any pending withdrawals in the system are still being processed, which we will have expedited.

  The Deposit & Withdrawal methods do not change and should only get better.

  You can still reach your great Sports.com staff of John, James & Tony at crew@sports.com or 888.711.1171 they will always be there to assist you if you need any help with your account.
