Even though 2009 is considered the official start of what is now known as TonyBet, the casino started its operation back in 2003, albeit under a different name. At the time, the casino was operated by the OmniBet brand, which over the years grew into a titan of gaming. Six years after its founding, the Lithuanian poker professional Antanas Guoga, also known as “Tony G” bought the brand.
The TonyBet casino then got the name it’s currently operating under but was later re-sold in September of 2016 by the Swedish company Betsson. It was purchased for €6 million. After he sold the company, Tony G remained the face of the company, even though he was no longer physically employed there.
Registering on the TonyBet website is straightforward. When you open the website there’s a purple “Sign Up” button in the upper right corner of the website. Once you fill in the basic info, you can choose whether you want to continue with a welcome bonus, or without it.
It takes less than a few minutes to finish the whole registration procedure, after which you can go on to play casino games, or bet on sports.
The TonyBet casino was bought by Betsson, a Swedish company in 2016 which has operated the casino and betting site ever since. Furthermore, it’s registered in Lithuania and regulated by EU law.
TonyBet holds a UKGC license and a license given by the Estonian Gaming Authorities. In 2021, TonyBet also acquired its Kahnawake Gaming Commission license.
As any trusted online casino should, TonyBet has publicly disclosed information about its operating license. License numbers are: HKL000243, HKT000016, HKL000098, HKT000015. The registration code of the casino and betting website is 12103082.
The TonyBet casino is based and registered in Tallin, the Republic of Estonia where it’s operated.
