The company that owns the site is McBookie Ltd, which took over from the previous owners in 2009. The platform is operated by the famous BetVictor Ltd The site itself has been online since 2003 and proved to be one of the most patriotic bookmakers that always put Scottish sports and punters before everything. Despite their long history, the bookmaker hasn’t been that popular outside Scotland, and it’s not very common for foreign players to join their site. The company is registered and operates under the jurisdiction of Gibraltar. It’s very common for UK betting platforms to register their businesses there. It’s licensed by the Gambling Commission in the UK. Of course, there are many nonscottish players that enjoy the platform.
