Heathorns have been in the bookmaking business since 1890 making them the oldest known bookmaker in the world. The founder was a gentleman by the name of Alfred Heathorn who established quite a reputation for taking large size bets. Over the years the company was passed down from Father to Son until March 2005, when it was acquired by Interactive Gaming Holdings (IGH) plc and in a bid to maintain the long standing tradition IGH continues to service high end customers and will lay some exceptionally large wagers.

In December 2006 IGH launched a White Label Program and ventured in to an agreement with UK based Global Tote to help achieve their ambitions to expand in to the European and particularly the Spanish Andalucian market.

The minimum stake is £1 and the maximum stake online is £20, 000 or equivalent.
