BetCRIS Sportsbook Review
Costa Rica International
Sports was one of the first to establish an international sports wagering
service. In 1985 CRIS opened one of the world's first offshore sports
book in the Dominican Republic. In 1993 they were the first sportsbook
to relocate to Costa Rica and over the next decade many more have followed.
They are arguably one of the largest outfits in Costa Rica today. The
philosophy at BetCRIS is to provide you with the highest caliber of service
while meeting all of your sports betting needs. Whether you are a professional
or recreational gambler, interested in European or US sports, CRIS will
cater to all of your sports betting needs. BetCRIS is generally the first
sportsbook to post lines, and the phrase "Where the line originates"
is true. Many line services, Las Vegas sports books, and bookmakers depended
upon BetCRIS to create a market place for sports bettors all over the

The offices at BetCRIS are expansive, as CRIS owns their own building, a
seven story glass faced building overlooking Sabana Park, in San Jose.
The lower floors are rented to other books, casinos and software providers
and CRIS encompasses the top two floors. Rich mahogany is the theme of
the furniture in the offices that line the outer ring of the customer
service floor. The offices themselves have an old world class about them
and each of the top people has an individual space. There is a very large
wagering floor with an separate area with a dozen clerks just for horses.
This is an extremely impressive shop.
