How We Started in 2007
We were just a couple of average guys wagering online back in 2007. We had accounts at some of the offshore sites, as well as some of the U.S. based ADW “big guys”, but we were frustrated with both. The offshore books treated us well and had good service, but weren’t contributing to the sport we loved and had a bad habit of having their funds seized (which didn’t make us feel very secure). The U.S. based “big guys” were secure and safe, but didn’t seem to have any passion, enthusiasm, or even care that we played at their site.
One day while talking, one of us said to the other “what if we could create a site that offered the service and products of the offshore industry, but with the safety and security of wagering in the USA, all while contributing to the track pools” — and that’s how BetAmerica.com got started. We then set about gathering together a group of like minded individuals — a team that could help us provide the best possible wagering experience. In January 2008 we launched our first website at BetAmerica.com.
