Tips to access blocked bookmaker sites

29-01-2018

Bookmakers alternative mirror links

Many (and growing number of) countries restrict online gambling in various forms - some allowing only operators that are licensed and paying taxes to the state, some defending the monopoly and finally some ban gambling at all. One of the methods used is blocking the access to bookie sites which are not authorized by the respective country. It works to some extent but internet censorship is never unbeatable.

So what people can do if their internet provider has cut the access to some bookmaker?

Using a mirror site:

This is the best and recommended way to tackle censorship. The "mirror" site is practically a clone of the original site, just located at another web address. Some bookies (but far not all) use mirrors when their main domain gets blocked in some country. Mirrors get banned too when they become too popular, in such case the bookie just opens the next address and all goes on.

Here are alternative links for some popular bookmakers (functional at the time of publication):

Pinnacle: Link #1 | Link #2 | Link #3
Sbobet: Link #1 | Link #2 | Link #3
Marathonbet: Link #1 | Link #2 | Link #3
1xbet: Link #1
LSbet: Link #1

Using VPN:

The Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a piece of software that can be installed on most desktop and mobile devices, as a standalone application or browser extension. What it does is hiding your real IP address, traffic goes through another IP address either in your own or another country by your choice. In this way you can unblock the access to any website which has been censored by your internet provider. Most of the VPN programs have free versions to some extent (limited volume of traffic or number of locations), anyway prices are low as 5-6 EUR monthly and fully affordable. You can search in Google for the most popular VPN solutions such as Zenmate, Windscribe, TunnelBear, CyberGhost etc. Some browsers as Opera have a free inbuilt VPN option that is really easy to use.

At the same time we must warn that using VPN is not 100% trouble-free. Some bookmakers don`t like VPN and have their ways to discover when you are hiding your real IP address. It is because many people use VPN to open multiple accounts at one and the same bookie (after getting limited, hunting bonuses etc.) and this is what bookies really hate. Also note that IP addresses in VPN are shared by many people. It may happen that you have used same IP address with another customer of the bookie and then it will be very hard to prove that you are not running multiple accounts. Finally, logging into payment providers (such as Skrill, Neteller or Paypal) with VPN switched on can easily result in your account getting locked. Be very careful with this. We recommend first asking the bookmaker if it is OK to use VPN or not to avoid future problems.

Using a brokerage service:

Another popular option. Brokers like Sportmarket, Premium Tradings and Asianconnect provide access to various bookies mainly Pinnacle, SBOBET, Singbet, Maxbet (ex- IBC), BetISN and some betting exchanges as Betfair and Matchbook. All these are meant for bigger bettors though and not suiting everyone.

In conclusion, we advise to respect the laws and bet only with bookmakers which are authorized by the governing body in your country. At the same time we are firmly against any form of censorship and believe in the free access to information. For example, blocking sportsbook sites is not practiced in USA although online gambling is not legal there. It is only you to decide what to do next once reaching some website.
