About Betsafe

Betsafe first came into the industry in 2006, but it could be argued that its only been the last couple of years that has seen them improve into a now top of line gambling outlet. Their additions of both poker and casino offerings means the company can now work against some of the biggest names in the industry and allow Betsafe to become one of the bigger players.

Betsafe have gone down the route of sponsorship for a lot of the company’s exposure. Their biggest success has probably come in the form of being the official betting partner for Manchester City FC, who are one of the richest football clubs in the world. But, they haven’t just sunk all their eggs into one basket and have reached out to other sports as well. Their most notable probably being that of the Gumball 3000, which is a cross-country car race with some of the most sought after supercars on the planet.

What’s been most impressive about Betsafe has been the company’s ability to react and adapt in what is a very tough and competitive environment at the minute. If they are to continue this strong hold over their competitors then they are going to need to continue this move towards being a global powerhouse, but so far, they are pushing all the right buttons.
