The History of Wannamakeabet.com
IT ALL STARTED IN A COLD WAREHOUSE IN NEW YORK CITY IN 1996.
Back in the early 90s when we were getting our feet under us in New York, we made the mistake of getting caught up in real money sports
betting and ended up losing a chunk of change to a bookie named Vinny from Queens. As part of that bad experience (read: disappointed fathers),
We were convinced there was a way to enjoy betting on sports without actually losing any money. The idea of a sports betting league quickly resonated
with immediate friends in NYC and we were able to get about 50 people together between New York and New
Orleans to pilot the concept for our first league that still remains to this day called Megabux New York. Our friends were having a blast with
their bankroll of "units" betting on parlays, teasers, reverses, straight bets and totals on hundreds of games every week without ever losing a penny.
The rest, as they say, is history. Right around this time, the Internet was quickly being adopted and it made perfect
sense for us to build a software program that would do all the wager grading and league management functions that we were doing manually. The
result was the first version of our website that launched in time for football season in 1999. Now, roughly 19 years later and 35,000 members
strong, Wannamakeabet.com is considered the first fantasy betting or free and fake sports betting website on the internet with thousands of
leagues to date and millions of virtual wagers graded.
We look forward to managing your league and working with you to be the best, most informed, sports handicapper you can be. We encourage
you to start off by joining one of our free leagues at the site to see how much fun it is. Then, you will naturally graduate to assembling
a group of friends, office workers or college buddies to start your own league with your own rules. We pride ourselves in being incredibly
service oriented (as long as you follow the rules) for all your fantasy sports betting needs.
