Australian online bookmaker IASbet.com closed on 5th August 2014.
The parent company of IASBet.com, Sportsbet Pty Ltd, trading as Sportsbet.com.au (Sportsbet), has made the decision to discontinue actively promoting the IASBet.com brand for commercial reasons and instead focus its attention on the Sportsbet website and brand
The following is a notification to IASbet.com account holders.
"From 5 August 2014, IASBet.com customers will only be able to place their bets using the Sportsbet.com.au platform, but will otherwise continue to be bound by the IASBet.com terms and conditions. When an IASBet.com customer goes to the IASBet.com website, the customer will land on a ‘splash page’ which will re-direct them to place their bet on Sportsbet’s website.
Although the bet will be processed by Sportsbet’s website, a bet made by an IASBet.com customer is still made with IASBet.com. The IASBet.com customer will be able to log into the Sportsbet website with their IASBet.com credentials. If the IASBet.com customer also has a Sportsbet customer account they will be able to log in with either their Sportsbet account credentials or their IASBet.com account credentials. "
Essentially the smaller brand is being merged with the larger brand. Both websites were operating on the same software platform, so other than the brand change, not much will change for existing customers of IASbet.
