Professional boxer Manny Pacquiao has given his approval to use his name at a new sportsbook and internet casino based in Costa Rica, the website announced last week.
Pacquiao is now tied in with Vital Bet, which will be powered by UltraPlay and will allow for wagers through the Bitcoin currency. All financial transactions will be processed through Cyprus. In addition to sportsbetting, the site will offer a casino complete with lottery and live dealer services, and will feature both desktop and mobile platforms for players to use.
It should be noted that Casino Listings has not yet had the opportunity to look at Vital Bet, so we cannot vouch as to whether the site is reputable or not. Seeing as how the site appears to be based in Costa Rica (a location with no player protections), players are advised to be cautious until more is known about this operator.
Manny Pacquiao is a Filipino boxer who has a record of 57-6-2. His most recent fight was against Floyd Mayweather generated $119,872,340 for the boxer, even though he lost the fight with a shoulder injury.
