Betting partnership could see greyhound punters win as big as the bookiesReading Time: 3 minutes

Maltese owned brand are “delighted and honoured” to go into business with a, a UK company owned brand that is bringing an end to the practice of closing the accounts of punters who become too successful.

Darren Moore, director of Betting Gods Malta Ltd, says its new strategic partnership with UK based E-Tote Ltd – owner of greyhound betting site – also has the scope to raise the profile of greyhound racing for generations to come.

Betting Gods has been providing professional betting tips on Greyhound racing since 2015 and other sports since early 2014.

Mr Moore says his company’s new partnership with 24Dogs, a UK Gambling Commission licensed sportsbook operator, which was founded in 2001, comes at a time when a positive shift in the betting industry is taking place.

He believes this shift will bring about more openness and fairness to customers, putting punters on a par with bookies in terms of their potential for higher returns on their bets.

Punters are becoming increasingly fed up of being restricted by how much they can stake or win online,” said Moore.

Year upon year bookies are reporting multi-million pound profits, but the average punter who dares to win more than he or she loses has their accounts closed or restricted.

We’re delighted and honoured to partner with 24Dogs, who state they will never limit customers other than in accordance with responsible gambling practices.

It is a clear sign and positive shift in the betting industry. We hope that other companies can learn from this openness and willingness to be fair to all customers.

Describing the new partnership with 24Dogs as a positive step forward for greyhound racing, the Betting Gods boss added: “It is also great for the industry of greyhound racing.

The dedicated betting platform of 24Dogs has the scope to drastically raise the profile of the sport for current and future generations.

Moore believes the approach of 24Dogs in not imposing limits or restrictions on the amount punters can win, except in accordance with responsible gambling guidelines, is a real breath of fresh air.

Both Betting Gods and 24Dogs are dedicated to “improving the betting experience” of gamblers looking to make gains from greyhound racing.

The site has recently undergone a dramatic overhaul of its website and branding, which it hopes will enhances its customers’ online experience.

The website boasts live streaming of greyhound races throughout the week, with racing fans able to reclaim the cost of a £5 day pass to view the races against bets.

When it was formed in 2001, was one of the first online licensed betting websites, and today, it remains the UK’s only Greyhound racing Tote betting site.

The Betting Gods website, at, boasts a membership of at least 94,000 punters, who receive free and paid tips and previews from professional tipsters every day.

Horse racing, boxing, tennis, golf and football betting tips are also amongst the sports its tipsters advise punters on.

Both websites have excellent readability and a smart, clear and responsive interface, making it easy for all punters to navigate their way through the pages they require.

The site makes it easy to identify the tracks you want to make your selections from and place a bet within seconds once you are signed up.

24Dogs and the tracks have an equally supporting role working together to help promote the industry with their on line presence

Chris Aldworth, Operations Manager at 24Dogs says: “Our punters have gained massive value over the years by betting on the tracks totes with us.  Teaming up with Betting Gods is a perfect partnership as we want our punters to win.  Betting Gods is an extremely exciting opportunity for us to help our customers maximize their profits, they have an extremely professional and honest approach and we are looking forward to a long successful partnership.”

9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India’s First Poker Chat Show




9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India's First Poker Chat ShowReading Time: 2 minutes


Pokerface with Gopal Datt is a first-of-its-kind poker chat show which celebrates the lives and stories of poker players. This first episode can be watched on the 9stacks YouTube Channel here. Episode 2 of the series was released on Friday, 17th May 2019, on the 9stacks YouTube channel. The episode that has Datt interview poker heavyweight Deepak Bothraand TVF Bachelors fame Badri Chavan, can be watched here.

The twist is that each episode features one actor/celebrity and one poker player, and gets both to spill the beans about their journey to fame and fortune. In a fun way, this draws parallels between the featured celebrities and poker players and celebrates the achievements of both guests.

The first episode of the show, hosted by Gopal Datt (the Internet’s very own funny man), features Amol Parashar, of TVF Tripling fame, and one of India’s top poker players Nishant Sharma. Last year Nishant won the highest ever prize money by an Indian poker player at the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.

Nishant, along with fellow poker pro Vivek Rughani, was part of the 9stacks Team India at the World Series of Poker and they became the first two Indians to enter the top 100 in the prestigious WSOP Main Event. Read the article here.

In the episode, Nishant speaks candidly about achieving his poker dreams and how he became a ‘Hero’ for other players in the industry. Many players now come to him for advice on their gameplay and some even ask him for selfies. His ‘Bina Darre’ playing style has won many hearts.

Nishant is accompanied by the celebrated actor Amol Parashar, who is also an avid poker player himself. An IIT Delhi alumnus, Amol was always into acting and was very interested in theatre. Amol recalled how his poker skills helped him sniff out a bluff early in his career: “Once I was offered a film with big casts like Mr. Amitabh Bachhan, Naseeruddin ShahSharman Joshi. Since I was new in the industry, I was asked to attend the workshop for the same where I was asked to pay Rs. 15,000 as room rent. I couldnt help but smell a bluff there. I mean, after all, if they were such a big film company, they surely wouldn’t ask me to pay Rs. 15,000 to book a room to rehearse in, right?”

Many more revelations came in the rapid fire segment of the show where the answers were ‘rapid and full of fire’. Unlike Koffee with Karan, the guests here got a lot of love instead of hampers!

Online Punters Having Issues Trusting UK Gambling Sites




Online Punters Having Issues Trusting UK Gambling SitesReading Time: 2 minutes


According to the UK Gambling Commission and YouGov, an independent data and public opinion company, most players in the UK don’t trust online casinos.

There have been several surveys held and published by these two authorities. Despite a different scale, period, and groups of respondents, the results were strikingly similar.

One of the surveys only questioned over a thousand of gamblers in the UK while another one included many more. One of them only included gamblers while the other one wasn’t limited to gamblers only.

Regardless of these differences, both surveys concluded that:

  • Around 70% of gamblers don’t trust the UK’s casino operators

According to the official data, this percentage has dropped by roughly 20% since 2011. That’s certainly alarming for the online gambling industry, especially since so many measures are taken to ensure the player’s safety.

However, it’s the industry’s and, most importantly, its regulators’ own fault. They have been trying to raise awareness regarding rogue casinos, problem gambling and similar casino-related issues in the past.

It seems that with such a decline in casino users’ trust, they’ve been very successful. In a way, this is a good thing too. After all, self-aware gamblers are less likely to suffer from irresponsible gambling outlets.

Punters Don’t Trust Online Casinos

YouGov explored this issue further with more specific questions such as:

  1. Do you support the decrease of a maximum stake at FOBTs from £100 to £2?
  2. How serious are gambling companies when they say they want their players to gamble responsibly?
  3. Do you support prepositions to limit the spending, stakes and speed one can gamble at online casinos?

All three questions revealed that gamblers in the United Kingdom are mostly for further restrictions. This implies that they don’t trust the operators and sites where they place their wagers.

Public Opinion in Numbers

For example, only 9% of people oppose the reduction of a maximum stake at physical betting terminals at bookies. Similarly, only 19% oppose suggestions to add similar limits to online casinos too.

More than 80% and 74% respectively agree with the tightening of gambling options both online and offline.

When it comes to trust related to responsible gambling promotion by the gambling sites, the situation is very similar. 71% think that casinos aren’t serious when they’re promoting responsible gambling.

Likewise, only 26%, or one in four, believe such communications of online casinos are truthful.

Why Is There So Little Trust?

Many stories of gamblers suffering from mobile casinos and their addictions have surfaced in recent months. This includes the ineffectiveness of GAMSTOP and similar problem gambling organizations.

Another example (more than one, in fact) is of casino operators that send self-excluded players promotions and personal offers to make them play casino games again.

Such examples have naturally diminished the public opinion of gambling firms and the industry as a whole. The watchdogs still struggle to protect certain gamblers in some respects, so people generalize this news.

Combined with a gambling stigma and the myths of rogue casinos, like outlined on the blog of GoWin, it’s no surprise that there’s little trust in the casino industry online.

Luckily, the situation is slowly improving thanks to frequent discussions and problem solving efforts. So, this decline in the trust of UK online casinos can’t last forever.
