History of ThePOGG
ThePOGG was founded in 2011 by Duncan Garvie. The site quickly built strong brand recognition via their even-handed reporting on the gambling industry, ThePOGG has for many years been a go-to resource for informed individuals both players and those in the iGaming industry.
ThePOGG Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service was launched in 2012, and has managed over 6.5k player complaints against online gambling companies, resulting in over $7.5 million having been returned to players. ThePOGGs ADR service has been recognised as appropriate to manage player complaints by multiple regulatory agencies and currently acts in an official capacity, providing legally binding rulings, for over 100 MGA licensed gambling operators. No other affiliate based complaint management service is approved to provide legally binding rulings for any regulatory system.
In 2017, ThePOGG founded and developed the responsible gambling service BetBlocker. BetBlocker.org provides free blocking software to anyone who feels that they need support to manage their access to online gambling services. In 2019, BetBlocker had grown so significantly that it was broken off from ThePOGG and established as a charity in its own right. The Trustees overseeing BetBlocker today are the same team that oversees ThePOGG.
Rare Opportunity to Pick Up a High Value Brand
The sale of ThePOGG.com represents a very rare opportunity to pick-up a brand that is industry renowned, holds unique accreditations allowing it to leverage a position of authority to foster trust with users and build SEO strength at the same time.
With Catena Media about to sell their flagship service, AskGamblers, which targets a very similar business model to ThePOGG, potential buyers are in the unique position of being able to pick-up a similar business with stronger core USPs as a complaint management service for a fraction of the astronomical sums being considered for AskGamblers.
ThePOGG’s domain strength compares favourably with some of the top ranking affiliate sites in the industry:
