Not the best site, stuff isnt set out well in my opinion. Decent odds, not been cut (yet), and no problems with transactions so far (touch wood). I believe they`re in Russia, I may be wrong, make of that what you will.

It's not Russian.  But it caters for the Russian market.  It has an Alderney licence.  My experience is that it's one of the best sportsbooks.  In some aspects the best.

Pretty sure it has a couple of UK shops under the Marathonbet brand.  Which suggests it's origins at least are in the UK.

From what I've heard they will suddenly get nasty, ask for all sorts of ID, pretend not to have received it, say it isn't clear, demand a solicitor notarises etc.  So be careful.

@dr atkins - SunBets is the Australian TAB isn't it?  What's your concern with them?  Hardly likely they'll go bust.

SunBets just about ready to pack up according to recent Private Eye.

Tabcorps said they might want to get out of the arrangement, that's not quite the same as them going bust or suchlike.

Can you imagine what the other papers would make of "The Sun" welching on monies owed.......

Thats right, basically their results have been p1shpoor. Little wonder when they close down accounts that are a couple of hundred up.

Looks like they've taken the £500 takeout guarantee away, which worries me, so try not to leave to much dosh in with them just in case the worse happens.
