Eastbridge – Sports Betting Service For High Rollers!


Despite a significant track record in the betting industry, the Ole Group may not be a name many of you are familiar with. It is in fact the leading Asian football brokerage and has been for over 10 years.

The group deals with all the biggest syndicates in the world and services many full-time professional traders.

If you are a high roller who bets big, then the platforms offered by Ole Group will certainly be of interest to you. Prices are comparable with the likes of Pinnacle but without the stake limitations so often seen there.

Customers can also benefit from a trusted method of accessing the secret world (for many of us) of the low margin Asian bookmaker platforms.

Lending me a helping hand to reveal all is Savak Limbuwala, Head of Marketing and Operations for the European arm of Ole Group.
 
 

Savak, welcome to Soccerwidow. Let’s talk firstly about the newest of Ole Group’s operations, Eastbridge, which is a free-to use, no restrictions sports betting service.

Hello Robert, yes, Eastbridge has been around for two years now and for UK residents operates in a similar manner to Pinnacle, laying bets directly, and managing markets with low margins in order to offer best prices to our customers. We specialise in Football, Tennis and US Sports, which is where we can offer best prices and substantial, pooled liquidity.

 

Is it fair to say that Eastbridge is not for the average punter?

Yes, Eastbridge is a phone and Skype service for professional punters, syndicate groups, high rollers, and high net worth clients. Our customers deposit funds in the normal way through bank transfer, card or e-wallet but contact us personally to strike their bets.

We hold a UK license, which is good news for our European and UK clientele looking to fill the void left by Pinnacle’s withdrawals from certain territories over the last twelve months.

Winning clients are not restricted and our service is entirely free to use and we have no minimum turnover thresholds. In fact, we believe we are currently the only licensed operation like this available to UK residents.

 

What exactly do you mean by ‘high rollers’?

Well, there is no practical reason why a client cannot have a seven or eight figure bank. There is no maximum withdrawal amount either, although clients moving larger funds tend to do so in multiple smaller tranches. Obviously, we cannot control the charges they may incur from their own banking arrangements for deposits or withdrawals but there are no hidden charges made from our side.

 

If you are a ‘broker’ and receive no commissions or fees from your customers, how does the business model work?

For UK clients we operate like a traditional bookmaker, laying the bets ourselves and therefore profit as any normal UK bookmaker would, although our margins are very small to maintain the high prices we are able to offer.

In relation to clients from outside the UK we are a broker to the Asian books we support and our income is in the form of rebates on turnover, again very small in percentage terms, but received regardless of their profits or losses. And because we deal with several big Asian books, our eggs are not all in one basket.

 

Which sports do you specialise in?

Using Asian books means we are especially sharp on the Asian Handicap, Total Goals and Corner markets in soccer betting. Tennis markets are also very strong. The full range of US sports is also well serviced such as basketball, baseball and American football, but understandably, we cannot cater for customers from North American territories.

 

And I’ve heard that you also offer free business-to-business solutions?

Our API service is the fastest and most reliable aggregated feed available in the market and is available to non-UK/US clients. Again, we offer this for free to companies due to the turnover rebates paid from the books we support. In this way, I believe we cater for a wider range of client and offer a broader suite of solutions than any of our competitors.

 

And that brings us on nicely to two more of your services, Vodds and Mollybet. What’s the deal here?

Vodds Logo

Vodds.com is our own brand new online Football betting platform, like any traditional bookmaker’s but the difference being that it is once again based on the brokerage model funded by rebates from the bookies concerned.

The odds available are aggregated from currently eight Asian books including Pinnacle and SBOBET.

Effectively, it’s a one-stop shop for placing bigger stakes than you would perhaps be limited to using just one of these bookmakers at a time. It’s also a one wallet solution and includes full-time and half-time 1×2 betting options. Many of our Eastbridge clients also use Vodds for their smaller scale betting.

 

Do you mean this is the equivalent of any online bookmaker as far as the punter is concerned?

Yes, the only difference is that your stake will either be matched to one bookmaker taking the whole line or several bookmakers each taking a percentage of the risk. The pooled liquidity here should still satisfy clients with four or five figure stake requirements and upwards.

Apart from Pinnacle and SBOBET, the majority of gamblers are going to be unfamiliar with the ‘dark and mysterious’ world of Asian bookmakers.
Who are they exactly? Why should punters trust them?

There is no real reason not to, many of them are larger than most European books and all are licensed in Asia. For example, Crown, Bet-IBC, LX168, GA288, BetISN, and SBC to name but a few. They are trustworthy because ultimately our customers are dealing through us to get to their products. We are the main European broker for these companies.

 

And what about Mollybet?

Mollybet is a third party platform similar in nature to Vodds. Again, we are a broker for this facility. This platform also offers Tennis and US Sports, as well as Football.

 

Savak, thanks very much for your time and I’m sure many of our readers will be interested to investigate Eastbridge, Vodds and Mollybet further.

Thanks for yours, Robert. Our various helplines are always open to field any enquiries about the mechanics of our operations.

 

So, in summary:

  • Eastbridge: Phone and Skype betting service/brokerage for high roller clients offering best prices, unequalled liquidity, no restrictions, and all absolutely free of charge.

>>> visit eastbridge <<<

  • Vodds: Online betting platform accessing Pinnacle, SBOBET and a range of difficult to reach Asian bookmakers offering high odds, high liquidity, and again free to use.
  • Mollybet: Access to a second Asian bookmaker brokerage platform as an alternative to Vodds; free of charges.

By all means leave any feedback about using these services in the comments box at the bottom of this article.

    Hello Soccerwidow!

    I Don’t understand how are they making their profit?
    If Eastbridge is for high rollers, this means that theese high rollers are professional bettors and they bet for value each time.
    So, if everybody at Eastbridge is professional bettor, than who will bet agains them?

    Thanks

      Hello again Sarkec,

      Sorry, but I think you are a little confused.

      Eastbridge acts like a broker on your behalf, placing bets for you at the highest prices they can find through their exclusive access to several no limits Asian bookmakers. In return, they receive a small commission from the bookmakers for acting as intermediary. The commission is based on the volume of business they place with these Asian bookmakers.

      However, if you are not consistently betting large stakes (i.e. four figures and above), then you can sign-up to Vodds.com, which is like any other online bookmaker.

      Both Eastbridge and Vodds often provide prices far in excess of the market average and also give you access to Pinnacle (important to all of us who can no longer access Pinnacle from our territories).

      I hope this is now clear!

    Hello!

    Yeah, it’s clear, thank you!
    ATM I am betting on O1.5,U3.5,U4.5, U5.5,U6.5 betfair markets with the help of the Value Detector and I have pretty good results here, but I pay a lot of comission.
    I would like to switch to Vodds, but I saw there are not available the markets I like to bet so I am a bit aware of switching.
    Do you think I can succeed the same way betting on AH and OU2.5 markets at Vodds with the help of the Value Detector.
    What do you prefer, using the Value detector at theese markets or It’s better if I calculate the Over/Under odds with the help of the method you presented in the Value betting course?

    Thanks

    Hi Sarkec,

    I think it is a matter of personal choice and time. Which method of odds calculation do you prefer and which do you find is the quickest? Both methods are equally as valid.

    Whatever your choice, I think it makes a lot of sense to give Vodds a go – you will achieve similar prices to Pinnacle and Betfair, but without paying any commission for the privilege.

    As for the strategy, as ever, it is a question of testing until you are happy that the Asian Handicap and Over/Under 2.5 markets can deliver for you. Don’t jump into anything until you have paper tested to a point where you can say for sure that your strategy works historically, and can then be tested ‘live’. If it works in the past and the present, then it is worth pursuing further.

    Thanks again for your input!

    hi soccerwidow,
    most of the asian bookmaker there is difficult to find the goal market like over 1.5/3.5/4.5 or under 1.5/3.5/4.5. most are over/under2.5. can i buy your ebook for the goal market?

      Hi Zinphyosein,

      Yes, the Odds Calculation e-book you refer to teaches you how to unravel the statistical DNA of the over/under goals market in general. You will certainly be educated about the over/under 2.5 goals bet type, and be in a position to select value bets based on sound mathematical analysis.

      It’s a good investment and the only book of its nature available on the topic.

    Does anyone using this website bet with Vodds or Eastbridge? Are they really reliable with no limit stakes?

    • Right Winger

      Hi Zin,

      I have had a lot of dealings with Eastbridge, which owns Vodds, and I have used Vodds myself.

      Although Eastbridge is definitely a no limit broker, Vodds is a multi-bookmaker platform with just a single wallet, which I have to admit is something I would advocate to our users.

      I have used Vodds myself and although there are limits, they are pretty high (usually well into five figures per bet), and of course you can keep topping-up your stake as new capacity amongst the bookmakers represented (including Pinnacle) becomes available.

      I would be interested to hear from anyone else.

    Hi, would the process be the same when using Vodds as using any other bookmaker…

    1. Check odds on oddsportal.
    2. If highest odds fall within the range of a particular systems inflection points then place a bet with Vodds.
    3. Hopefully Vodds odds are better than highest odds.

    • Right Winger
      3 July 2017 at 11:57 pm #

      Hi Darren,

      VOdds odds tend to reflect the highest market odds (as they include Pinnacle and SBOBet), but when not, they are never far adrift.

      But in principle, yes, the inflection point process is exactly the same as you have described above.

      Good luck!

    Thanks Right Winger.

    I’m just wondering what funding method you use to deposit to Vodds. I’m considering Neteller and chatted with Vodds live chat who gave me a gmail.com email address to send my deposit.

    Having never used Neteller or Vodds before I’m unsure what to make of the gmail email. I suppose i was expecting a vodds.com email or something a little less…random

    Should I be suspicious?

      Hi Darren,

      I can only give you an opinion based on my own experience, so as they say in legal parlance, this is a ‘without prejudice’ viewpoint:

      Personally, I use bank transfer to avoid third party charges.

      I can’t really comment about the validity of their Neteller email address, but can only suggest that if you are apprehensive about it, make only a small deposit first (whatever their minimum via Neteller is).

      VOdds seem okay to me – I remember the sign-up process was quite lengthy but afterwards they were very quick to acknowledge the KYC documents (Know Your Customer) and set-up the account.

      I think you also have to accept that the financial side is ‘offshore’ as they are providing you with access to Pinnacle, which is ordinarily out of reach of UK customers (Pinnacle currently has no gambling licence for the UK).

      VOdds therefore gives you a legally acceptable method of accessing Pinnacle (and other very sharp Asian high-limit accounts), and the advantage of using VOdds (apart from the great prices) is that you will never be banned or limited, no matter how successful your exploits with them are.

    Thanks for feedback Right Winger.

    In the end that’s exactly what I did – made a small initial deposit which was credited swiftly and then a larger amount shortly after, which was also credited swiftly.

    I agree that the sign up was lengthy though in my case it was because things didn’t seem to work – buttons didn’t seem to process and the postcode field wouldn’t take my data correctly and I had to try to signup through multiple browsers but managed it in the end – though I need to contact them to get my postcode added.

    KYC checks went through swiftly so I’m pretty much good to go.

    Thanks for the advice
