We are very happy to announce that all customers of Matchbook will now be able to bet in currencies other than USD. Since March 2011 , when the company was newly acquired, the growth we have achieved has surprised even us. This further confirms our belief that the industry is crying out for a low commission, betting exchange alternative which delivers value back to the punter. These are exciting times for Matchbook and sports gamblers alike, and will allow us to expand on the growth we've already seen, as well as adding to our position as the number 1 place to bet NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB


Matchbook has been in operation since 2004. The company was acquired in 2011 by UK investors. SBR reported on the Matchbook sale on March 3rd, 2011.

Matchbook management tells SBR that the launch of multiple currencies, as well as plans to launch a multi-lingual platform will further solidify the exchange as a global option.
