Bookmaker Review of VIP.com
2006/10/11 - Update by Ira Nanson
The bill that was passed in Congress on September 30th was bound to affect some books, especially those low tier and financially unstable ones.
However, nobody was ready for Leisure and Gambling’s shock and perhaps premature decision to quit servicing US customers. Subsequently L&G have reported to Gambling911 that possible buyers have approached them looking to purchase their US facing brands VIP, BetGameDay and Nine.
It makes sense to sell now that they won’t accept US customers and no doubt with the recent acquisition of BetShop L&G will want to shift focus and concentrate on the European market.
It is also rumored that L&G will ultimately revert back to the Private Sector after concluding that going public via a reverse merger has bought nothing but aggravation.

VIP.com - Leisure and Gambling PLC - registered since 1997 and listed on the London Stock Exchange are on everybody's favorite list, they are undoubtedly considered one of the worlds best online sportsbooks.
The company - run by CEO Alistair Assheton - is based in the Netherland Antilles and, like Bodog, their casino and poker product is powered by RTG software. Sportbook software is provided by IGW.
VIP.com (formerly VIP Sports) is highly acclaimed and have won multiple Gambling Online Magazine awards including :
Quite impressive! Yes, but those awards usually have a lot to do on how much you spend in adds with the magazine. That being said, what does VIP.com have to offer?
Most common complaints usually relate to cut limits for professional players, maximum wagers that vary and are considered on a case by case basis but they are usually low.
If you are a recreational player looking for a safe betting environment and like to be treated like a VIP, this is the perfect choice for you!
