Up and coming independent bookmaker Betsid has announced the opening of a new betting shop in Blackpool, with another scheduled in the spring….and revealed that there are plans to enter the online sports betting sector at some point in the near future.
The company recently bought Betabet in Chorley, adding two shops to its growing chain of four in the area.
BetSid, which now employs around thirty people, has experienced rapid expansion since it began trading in June 2013, and is the exclusive betting partner of Preston North End FC.
Paul Kirkby, operations manager for BetSid said: “There are not many independent bookmakers on the high streets of Britain any more but we are confident we have something to offer and things have been going brilliantly since the start.
“Each store creates work for around five full time staff who all get the full training from the Association of British Bookmakers to make sure they are up to date with the code for responsible gambling.”
