Episode 53 – AKBets.Bet / Bookmaking…Differently with Anthony Kaminskas
2023 Spring Mile and Lincoln Preview
In this special episode, I am joined by friend of the show, Anthony Kaminskas (AK) to talk about his new online bookmaking website – akbets.bet and his shift from being a high staking, winning punter to that of bookie.
AKbets was launched in early March 2023 and has attracted a lot of interest from punters due to AK’s desire to do things differently to the large ‘corporate’ bookmakers and to offer better, more personal customer service and to accept bets they might otherwise refuse.
In this chat we explore all aspects of how AK deals with smart punters, with some specific examples of when and where he is happy to lay bets, especially when the information is useful to him and the market is liquid enough to take it on.
We also discuss his disdain for ‘arbers’ and why he can’t and won’t accommodate people who are in his words ‘taking the mick’ and why he does his best to engage and explain his decisions on what he will and wont take to customers. That in itself is a mightily refreshing take on bookmaking and he speaks with honesty and transparency about not only this, but his business, why he decided to be a bookie, including the decisions he made on skins, licenses, technology and more.
Starting out as a licensed bookmaker, especially online is a intense, costly business but if anyone can, AK can and my thanks go to him for being so open and honest about the reality of betting and bookmaking. If you are interested in learning about bookmaking and more on whether you should open an account with him, this podcast will tell you all you need to know.
