Site Founder & Additional Contributors

Our founder hand registered the prized USAbetting.com domain in 1999. He is in charge of the commissioning and editing of all published content. He also writes the operator reviews, general editorial content that is not attributed to anyone else and keeps the site updated. His resume includes an eclectic mix of roles over the years, but all centered around the sports betting world. He was a horse racing journalist, handicapper and general sports sub-editor, both writing and editing copy for national newspapers. He subsequently founded one of the first online bookmakers in 1998 before selling out to a public company two years later. At that time he was an amateur jockey and is still a long-suffering racehorse owner.

Fiona Derek is our horse racing expert. She has lived and breathed horses from a young age, having been involved in the horse racing industry both riding out for racehorse trainers and training herself.

USA Betting: Integrity, Safety, Reputation, Independence

USA Betting is an aggregator, portal or affiliate site. We compare the merits of U.S. sportsbooks and weed out the untrustworthy. We receive commission when we refer a player to one of the betting operators that we list and review on this site. With many of our competitors, that fact colors their judgment and they will promote any operator as long as it results in a referral.

Finance is not the overarching factor in our thinking. We value integrity, honesty, the safety of players and our own reputation for independence, even if it ruffles feathers. You only have to read about the sites we recommend that you avoid such as the rogue BetUS sportsbook to realize that we won’t promote firms that, in our opinion, risk your safety.

Many despicable affiliate sites do get paid to promote the BetUS brand, as well as other untrustworthy operators that USA Betting refuses to list. Those sites put your safety at risk, while in stark contrast our actions demonstrate that we value the welfare of bettors above all else, highlighting the dangers. Integrity, and not finance, will always be our priority. It is something we take very seriously.
