|With some books going out of business and some punters complaining of not being paid on some big wins, offshore sportsbooks have had something of a bad rap lately, so it’s nice to be able to report some good news. |
VIPSports.com reports that one player has hit a 12 team parlay,
paying out $30,000 - in his first week betting at the site- and he only narrowly missed out on a second when Rutgers fell 34-11 at home to Buffalo!
For those of you unfamiliar with sports betting terminology, a parlay is a bet made of a string of smaller bets – all of which must come through to hit the big payoff. (For UK punters, an accumulator is the equivalent term)
At tip of the hat to VIPSports.com also, for being one of the few books approved by the Interactive Gaming Council, Sportbookreview.com and the Offshore Gaming Association. With the backing of these organizations, players have the reassurance that they will get paid when they win!
'We are delighted to congratulate our latest winner' stated Alistair
Assheton, General Manager, who also added that the player - from the Chicago
area - would get his payout sent immediately and for free - as part of VIP's
policy with major parlay winners. 'VIP is determined to show that there is a
safe place to bet offshore, despite the horror stories that circulate all
too frequently. By sticking to a really reputable book that has proven
itself over the years, players can enjoy big bets safe in the knowledge that
their funds are secure at all times.' he concluded.
The company also offers a special parlay promotion called Friday Fever -
which boasts improved odds on almost all parlays made on the between noon and 8pm ET on the Friday before the weekend's football games.
