Sportsbook Review of ThePig
2006/09/15 - Review by Ira Nanson

Online since August 2006 The Pig is the newcomer to the industry and is owned and operated by Legendz Gaming Corporation who were previously known as MVP Sports International but changed their identity to avoid confusion with MVPBets and/or MVPSportsbook.

Legendz Gaming have been Licensed in Panama since 2003 at a time when it was considered to be a favorable location due to the good telecommunications path but it was a difficult move for most because of strict rules regulated by the Panamanian Government who would only accept reputable organizations and dismiss any new starts and fly by night operations.

Other sites related to The Pig include: DimePlayer & Legendz Sports.

The Pig operates its own independent poker network thanks to a recent deal with Las Vegas From Home which basically means that The Pig will have complete control of their own dedicated poker network.

The sportsbook is powered by BLR Technologies and Legendz Sports - their flagship sportsbook - is reported to be their largest client.

The Pig website site is striking, in fact the color scheme is quite blinding but don't let that put you off. This bookie offers casino, poker racebook and of course a sportsbook which provides fantasy sports, live lines, NFL Schedule, forum access, sports information, various betting options. However the odds are pretty much standard plus some reduced juice.

Their target audience is recreational players with offers of generous bonus and promotions. Wise guys and sharps are not welcome and will be asked to leave and their accounts liquidated.

Legendz Gaming have a good reputation in the industry for fast payouts and outstanding customer service. They are also an operation with a kind heart, last year they matched the total amount donated from their players and pledged it to the American Red Cross for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The Pig, backed by the well respected Legendz has great potential just like some of the other shops that SGR has rated Above Average such as 10Bet, AstraBet and Bet Any Sports.
