Best Sportsbook

June 20, 2010

There are number of web sites that have best sportsbook review out there today. They all say the rating they have on their website is the best one. Some say they check sportsbooks regularly, test their customer service and qualities to compile their rankings. Others just make the list and post it without any explanation. I will uncover a small secret behind those ratings and present you with official rating of top bookmakers.

So, how do they put together those rankings? What do they base their table of top bookmakers on? I will tell you. They base it on affiliate commission they get from those bookies. Whoever pays more get the top spot. Easy, right? One of good examples would be top sportsbook review and forum website called SBR. Look what kind of sportsbooks they have in top 20. Majority of them are low-quality bookmakers located offshores. Internet forums dedicated to sports betting are full of claims linked with these bookies. Even SBR forum has some, but they still keep these bookies on top. Why? Because they pay high affiliate commission to the owner of that website. I would not surprise if they pay half of what punters, who come from SBR site and register, lose at these sportsbooks to the website owner.

Just to give you an idea. You probably heard of Bwin brand. They are sponsors of Real Madrid and AC Milan football clubs. Well-known and technologically one of most advance online bookmakers out there today. SBR rates it C-. And let’s look at bookmaker called BetJamaica. It is ranked A+. Just take a look at both websites and you will get an idea what I am talking about.

SBR is just one of many examples I can bring up. Go to google, search for term best sportsbook and out of all websites you will hardly find any that explains how they put their rankings together. But when you hover over bookmakers links, you will see that these are affiliate links and once you click on it, register, place a bet and lose it, you will immediiately make some money to the website owner whose link you clicked. Anyway, you should really care about it since you jsut try to find the best sportsbook. And, probably, you won’t find the best one since all these reviews follow one simple goal – make money. Unless, you stick with an official review.

Have you ever head of EGR Awards that take place every year in London? Or EGR Power 50 report, which is also updated once per year? Both of these reports are organized by a well-known magazine called eGaming Review Magazine. This magazine independently reviews all the bookies and ranks them on many factors such as technology, marketing, innovations, etc. I would say this is the only trustworthy source of information about online sportsbooks. The rating you can trust. Check latest EGR top sportsbook  rating now.

Remember I talked about sportsbook called Bwin and how low SBR rated it? EGR ranked it top for past two years. And there are clear reasons behind it. Bwin brand is everywhere. Its site is superb. It is  improving its services all the time. But, to be honest, have you ever heard of BetJamaica?
