|BETonSPORTS (www.betonsports.com) located in San Jose, Costa Rica, the world's largest legal and licensed sportsbook, wants to go home to the United States. There is only one problem, the business is illegal here.|
David Carruthers, CEO of the company, said, 'Our vision is to heighten awareness of industry opponents through education and go to whatever lengths necessary to make the online wagering industry a part of everyday life in the United States. With this in mind, we are inviting United States Senators Jon Kyl of Arizona and Trent Lott of Mississippi and Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts, Jim Leach of Iowa and Bob Goodlatte of Virginia to visit our San Jose, Costa Rica headquarters any weekend from now until the end of October to tour our facilities and see our operation in action. We have also offered to pay for all of their expenses, so not to burden the American tax payers.
'The position of the United States government regarding online wagering is made up of total inconsistencies. There is only one difference to what we are doing on line as to what is being done in Las Vegas at casinos such as the Bellagio and Mirage. At BETonSPORTS.COM you can wager without leaving the privacy of your own home.
'BETonSPORTS.COM has gross revenue equivalent to a Fortune 100 Company, more than 1.4 Billion dollars in 2001, and are projecting over 2 billion in 2002, we would like nothing more then to be recognized as a legitimate, regulated business that makes a major contribution to the United States by contributing to the economy.'
