Gtbets are one of the newer online betting sites that are open to American players. Formed in 2011 they focus solely on sports popular in North America.
They offer 2 bonuses both with low rollover requirements and are one of the top options for small to medium bettors in America. They have a flawless reputation and process cashouts in a fast and efficient manner.
GT Bets is a relative newcomer to the online betting scene that opened in 2011. The company makes it clear that it is a sportsbook for the recreational player only and is not at all interested in accepting action from sharps, going as far to state in its terms that “management reserves the right to confiscate bonus and all winnings associated if play is deemed as non-recreational”.
While GT Bets is a US friendly book, it is also doing all it can to avoid any potential legal problems with the United States, prohibiting bettors from Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, New York, Oregon, and Washington from joining.
A number of their employees came from the VIP family of sportsbooks (VIP Sports, Bet GameDay, NINE) when VIP shut down on Aug. 1, 2011. They also acquired software and hardware from VIP. While a separate entity from the old VIP group, GTBets did make a showing of good faith by honoring the balances of those players who failed to request their final balances from the VIP group before the cut-off date.
It has has been straight up in meeting its obligations and paying players since opening its doors, which is something that has carried over from its relationship with the VIP group. When the family of VIP sportsbooks went out of business, players were notified in advance and told to request their account balances; it wasn’t another case of a company shutting down and running for the hills while in possession of player’s funds. The fact that GT Bets honored the balances of VIP’s players, even though they are a different company, says quite a bit about the people running the operation.
