We The Bookie
B2C online sportsbook that redistributes 50% of monthly gross gaming revenue to customers in direct proportion to each one’s monthly net loss. We The Bookie would rather pay its customers than affiliates and marketers. As such, they return 50% of each month’s gross revenue from bets back to our losing customers in direct proportion to their loss – in what’s called the WeShare program. We The Bookie is one of the most responsible bookmaker in Ireland (and soon the world). Their model inherently discourages chasing losses and since it is transparent and each losing customer receives the same percent of their losses back, they have no need for VIP programs. They plan to expand globally.
