Vernons has now closed down with the domain now redirecting to it’s stablemate Jackpot 247. The brand was acquired by Betsson in 2019 along with a number of other casinos and was eventually shut down in December 2019.
The following information has been left for reference purposes but is no longer actively maintained.
Vernons is a huge, long-established betting giant that has been going since 1925 and now offers almost the full gamut of gambling options. Along with sports betting, they have casino, online bingo, games and poker offerings.
Vernons started out way back in 1925 by launching the football pools, a lottery-style game whereby players can win huge prizes (the biggest was over £3m in 2010) by predicting matches that would end as score draws.
In 2007 the three biggest pools companies, including Vernons, were brought together under one umbrella, Sportech. Sportech operate in over 30 countries, processing $13bn of bets each year and employing over 1,000 people worldwide. Their headquarters are in London but they operate offices in Liverpool (home to Vernons), Dublin, Atlanta and a number of other cities.
This may seem irrelevant but the point is that Vernons are backed by a huge name and have vast resources of both wealth and experience. This means that as a player you know you are dealing with a reputable company, that your money and personal details are secure and that everything will function as promised. Moreover, Vernons, largely through its pools arm has donated over £1bn to good causes, so you can win money and give to charity all at the same time.
They are licensed and regulated in Alderney and boast all the usual security and fairness measures one gets with the big boys. Top notch encryption, auditors ensuring fairness and guaranteed privacy all come as standard with Vernons.
It may be something of a cliché but can five million players in 150 countries be wrong? Simple answer: no. Vernons offer good customer service 24/7 by live chat, phone and email and given their casino and other interfaces are fast, fun and very easy to use they are an excellent all-rounder and would be a superb addition to your portfolio.
