TheOnlinewire.com is the direct evolution of TheOffshoreWire.com founded in March 2004 by the former managing director of Royal Sports, an online sportsbook located in Curacao, Netherland Antilles.
The Online Wire provides punters with a 360 degree overview on the gaming industry thanks to our founder comprehensive knowledge of “both sides of the counter”. In 2011 we have undertaken a major step by radically changing our website which no longer features gambling operators’ ratings.
In today's climate it is virtually impossible to provide readers with reliable ratings. In the last 24 months we have seen top rated operators disappear whilst other rating sites were ignoring the warning signs and kept sending unaware gamblers to the slaughterhouse.
We have decided instead to list only the best and most trusted operators in our comparison pages empowering you, our readers, by providing you detailed information so you can compare and make an educated choice.
Our core mission is to provide gamblers with an in-depth view of the latest events in the industry, independently review sports books, race books, poker rooms and online casinos on unbiased and objective criteria and assist players helping them choose their new gambling operator through our detailed and easy to use comparison pages.
Thanks to our vast knowledge we add to our comparison pages only those operators who meet stringent criteria of fairness, integrity, customer service and pay-outs performance.
The Online Wire is wholly owned by Web Game Consultants N.V., a Curacao (Netherland Antilles) based company. To protect our integrity and freedom of judgement our company does not accept proceeds from players’ losses. The Online Wire only accepts one off sign up referrals and registration fees from those who wish to be listed in our directory.
While accepting some form of compensation represents an “unavoidable evil” our choice to only accept one off referral contracts helps to maintain our independence from operators listed in our comparison pages and does not provide listed operations the leverage that a net loss agreement otherwise does.
