About Us

Basketball Insiders was founded in 2013 and has, since the first few days of existence, been a huge supporter of the online betting industry. While the site is relatively new and the online gambling industry is constantly moving, the people behind the site are not. The Basketball Insiders team consists of several professionals from the online sportsbook and casino industry who have assisted in all aspects of the business as a whole.

The Mission

Our aim for the site is to provide every day news and information about sports and sports betting, along with the best and most accurate online gambling information possible. We do this by having our team of experts play at the same sites that we recommend, claiming bonuses, getting payouts, trying out table games, and of course, checking wagering requirements.

“We aim to have the most accurate gambling information possible, so our users can make informed decisions.”

It’s not as simple as picking a favorite though as some online gambling sites are better than others at certain things. This is the reason we rank the world’s best online gambling and sports betting sites in a variety of categories. We would like to make Basketball Insiders the home for all gambling-related topics, to give our users the knowledge they need to make informed decisions.

Responsible Gambling

Gambling is an incredibly popular pastime throughout the world and billions of people are doing it in some form or another. This is why we feel it’s important to play our part in helping users make the best choices by promoting responsible gambling. If you’re wagering more than you can afford to lose, chasing losses, or giving yourself abnormal stress and anxiety, you may need help and advice from qualified professionals.

Gambling Legislation

While Responsible Gambling should be the hallmark of any online casino, we feel it’s equally important to ensure that the sites that we rank and review are licensed by the appropriate authoritative bodies. All casinos should be held to a high standard in terms of compliance and should be from reputable and applicable jurisdictions. Every site that we review will have at least one of the following online casino licenses.

Editorial Policy

All of our pages are written and edited by highly experienced and qualified writers and analysts who have long histories in the online gambling world. Our information is highly accurate and factual, as well as being current and reliable too. The editorial team also ensures that content is completely fair and balanced.

A Note from the Editor

Alan Draper is the main editor of Basketball Insiders. Alan has years of experience betting on sports and playing at casinos both online and in person. Here’s a quick note from our fearless leader:

“I’ve been a lover of sports for my entire adult life, and for me, the best thing about watching sports is the betting that you can make on your favorite teams. Not only does this add more excitement, but it also has the opportunity to make you some money if you do it right. I started Basketball Insiders because I found that I was winning more and more bets every week, and thought it would be great to share my knowledge and experience with everyone else who is a sports-lover, just like me!

I hope that you, our readers, find that the site is helpful and informative. After all, the only thing I want is for someone to come to the site and benefit from it in some way or another. As time goes on, we’ll be adding more content to the site to be a one-stop-shop for everything sports betting and gambling related”.
