Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Handicappers Hideaway?

We are a website that gives information about online sportsbooks, casinos and poker rooms. We also have professional handicappers, sports picks, and live odds.

We have shifted gears recently in focusing on unbiased reviews about online sportsbooks, casinos and poker rooms. We have also partnered with a reputable site that people can buy cryptocurrency at.

We removed our forums to focus on reviews, sports handicapping, sports picks, and live odds. Our site used to have forums that went back as far as 2008. We had over 500,000 posts and 175,000 topics. The forums had so many broken links we decided it was best to remove them. Registered users can still comment using the comment system under each post.

How Long has Handicappers Hideaway Been Around?

We started out as GamblingIQ back in the summer of 2008. We friends left Eye on Gambling (EOG) and started up our own online forums and gambling portal. In the summer of 2010 Gambling IQ was sold to a 3rd party vendor and Handicappers Hideaway was born. HH still had the database to the forums so it was a continuous transition.

In 2012 we took a small break and moved to AskTheBookie. After a year ATB wanted to get out of the forum business and we merged the forums there and the ones at Handicappers Hideaway. The site has been continuously operating since.

We have our forum database saved so we can put the forums back up at any time if needed.

Is Gambling Allowed on Handicappers Hideaway?

No. There is no gambling on our site. We are a information only website that gives our honest opinions about online gambling sites and pay per head services. We also have other options that are tied to online gambling like Virtual Private Network reviews and links to sites like Fanatics so users can purchase goods for their favorite teams if wanted.

Do We Make Money from Clicking the Links on our Site?

Yes, sometimes. We have affiliate links to most of the sites that have banners on our website. Also many that have embedded links. We only make money if someone signs up or purchases products from one of the links on the website.

Are Your Reviews Biased or Paid for?

We do not get money to alter our ratings. We only deal with online gambling sites that we have know are financially stable (to the best of our knowledge) and/or we have personally dealt with for a long time.

Many of the places on our site have been in business for over 20 years. Everygame has been around since 1983 and was the first sportsbook to accept a wager online in the early 1990’s. Many of our sportsbooks, casinos, and poker rooms have been on our site since its founding.

Our reviews are honest and based on our experience. Pay Per Head site reviews are the same way. Just recently we downgraded two of the sportsbooks on our site to 1* or 2* because they started having issues with payments and not living up to what we deemed good for the players. One of them was a guy we have known for 15 years. It was nothing personal.

How do you contact Handicappers Hideaway?

We also interact from our personal social media accounts as well. You can access our social media account from the menu in the footer of the page.

Do you have special bonuses from the gambling sites on HH?

Yes, there are many special bonuses available to our users. Each review page is updated regularly. Plus we have special sections of the homepage with current promotions. We also post articles with special promotions for our users.

What about the Sports Handicappers?

We have become a part of a network with some of the best sports handicappers on the planet. You can access the page for the handicappers from the menu at the top of the page or on the home page. We will be adding widgets soon that will update daily.

Once you get to the handicappers page you can see the leaderboard and access to all the handicappers. You can sort by sports, winning percentage and many other options. We also have computer picks that are outstanding.

Are there Scamdicappers on the Website?

No. This site is unique as all picks have to be made thru the software. Just like you would at an online sportsbook. All picks are locked in and can’t be changed for any reason once the game starts. All handicappers are documented and legitimate.

Why are there no US based Sportsbooks on your site?

We are developing another site to advertise US land based sportsbooks that have become legal over the last few years. There are now 30 States legal and more about to become. US regulations will not allow them to advertise on any site that has offshore operators on them. No matter if they are licensed and legal in the Countries and Jurisdictions where they operate.
