Comments

To say that Bookmaker is a leader in the offshore business is an understatement. This is the place where all lines start. Most books will not even open a betting line until Bookmaker oddsmakers have established the number. The days of watching Las Vegas have long since past. This is a high-volume bookmaker that takes $5,000 bets as routinely as most books take $100 bets. This is where professional players play. In a day where successful players find that their limits are cut for winning too much, players can win without limit at Bookmaker and get paid with a smile into the millions of dollars.

For just about as long as there has been offshore wagering, there has been Bookmaker. This is a very large and established operation that is best suited for the sophisticated player as well as large recreational players who typically wager $500 per event or more.
