-->The same week the former Maltese Prime Minister and now member of the opposition party, Alfred Sant, called on the Maltese Government to come clean and show how much the remote gaming sector is really contributing to the island's economy, a source familiar with Sunderlands Online told Bookmakers Review that the betting company may be closing down any day as the new owner Baron Menzel allegedly made redundant all but one employee.
The same source added that Sunderlands problems started in June 2009 when the former owner lost millions with his property business in the UK.
While we received confirmation that BetPresto was launched under the previous ownership to rebrand the Sunderlands business, we have also been told that Baron Menzel was fully aware that the company had some financial problems when he started negotiating for it in December 2009.
Sunderlands Bookmaker was founded in the UK in 1946. It then went on as an on-course bookmaker and telephone betting operator until 2003 when Sunderlands was one of the founding members of BetMart.com, at the time the English bookmakers' version of a betting exchange. The British bookmaker then moved to Malta, from where it operated online targeting the European betting market.
Considering its 60 years of history and the fact the company was well-known and respected until a year ago, it is safe to say that the Sunderlands database of customers was at the end of 2009 the most valuable asset of the company.
So we would not be surprised if Sunderlands was to close down and its customers were re-directed somewhere else. Five years ago, the UK's oldest bookmaker Heathorns was acquired by AIM-listed Interactive Gaming Holdings. Two years later Heathorns' Malta license was suspended and the bookmaker stopped operating after being involved in the IGH-Premierbet debacle. In 2008 Jenningsbet took over whatever was left of UK's oldest bookmaker. Who will save the Sunderlands brand ?
