VIPSportsZone Sportsbook and Casino
Sportsbook Review
by J. Phillip Vogel

Great design...check. Wide selection...check. Effective security...check.

As I went down my “Quality Site” checklist, I was pleasantly surprised at what I found. While I’m always more than a little bit skeptical whenever I venture into the online sportsbetting arena, I’m never more so than when I come across a recently launched site. However, despite my cynical nature I couldn’t help but be impressed with VIPSportsZone.

Designed to suit the needs of all types of gamblers, VIPSportsZone is a comprehensive sportsbetting/casino venue where even the most technologically challenged player can navigate with ease. The homepage is both inviting and visually appealing with all of the pertinent information positioned prominently so bettors don’t have to scour the site to get to the goodies. Features include a continuous sports news feed, links to live lines, scores from past games, various bonus offerings and even links to their parlay payout percentages.

The betting options in the sportsbook incorporate a very wide range of international sporting events including football, baseball, basketball, boxing, tennis, golf, motor sports, European football, and rugby—to name a few. Betting types are also varied and include everything from straight bets to a full array of mixed-sport parlays, teasers, if bets, round robins and futures. Limits typically run high—up to $2,000 (depending on the event) with the ability to go higher with approval. In addition, limits are also routinely raised during playoffs and can easily accommodate even the highest bankroll.

Getting started with your own account is quick and painless. Simply sign up right from the homepage by entering your personal information (name, address, etc.,) fund your account (options include credit card, NeTeller, wire transfer, Western Union) and you’re ready to go. To bet, simply click on the pull-down menu, choose your wager type, the amount, the event and click “Place Bet.” Voila! You’ve got action.

While clearly sportsbetting is the dominant feature for this site, there is also a well-equipped casino available in both JAVA and downloadable format. All of the perennial favorites are there, such as Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Poker and Slots and in general it’s not a bad place to play in between games or while waiting on the outcome of your last bet. Best of all, since a single account grants you access to both the sportsbook and the casino, there’s no hassle involving different logins and passwords—just click on the casino link and you’re ready to go.

To sign up for an account or for more information visit their website at www.vipsportszone.com or call their customer service line toll free at 1-866-966-3847.
