BetRuss.com now redirects to LooseLines (SBR rating B-)
. Looselines is a part of the group of sites that include better known B rated books ABCislands
and Jazz Sports
. BetRuss management tells SBR that the decision to move under Looselines was made because the BetRuss
brand and its marketing team was "fighting an uphill battle" due to the stigma of the Absolute Poker controversy. BetRuss
was founded by a former Absolute Poker manager. Looselines will be financially backed by DPT Sports but operate independently with its own lines and management. Looselines will move from the -108 lineset that was offered until today to BetRuss standard -110 vig. Bettors who were using Looselines prior to today will be able to use the -108 lineset by accessing their accounts through ABCislands. LooseLines, which will focus on recreational players, has been lowered to B- as it adapts to the BetRuss staff and operating policies. Looselines
management tells SBR that the migration was already completed in the middle of the night.
