Sportingbet was founded by Mark Blandford in 1997. They are the first online gaming company listed at the exchange in 2001. Three years later Sportingbet acquired Paradise Poker. In SportingBet reported that its then chairman, Peter Dicks, was detained in New York City on a Louisiana warrant while traveling in the United States on business unrelated to online gaming.Louisiana is one of the few states that has a specific law prohibiting gambling online. Shortly after that incident Sportingbet announced Paradise Poker would stop taking deposits from US customers, although most would be allowed to continue to play for another month. Additionally, Sportingbet sold all its US-facing sportsbetting and casino businesses, including Sportsbook.com and Sports.com, to a group of private investors for $1, and an assumption of $13.2 million in debts.
Despite to their huge customer database from all over the world, Sportingbet are far from its best days according to many independent opinions. But still they are regarded as one of the top companies.
In March 2013 Sportingbet was acquired by GVC Holdings and William Hill for 530 million pounds.
