    Been seeing ad's for this site on TV the last couple of weeks, seems to be a site run by Boyle's (see the bottom right of the Sports page of the site). Anyone know anything more about them? Their television advertisements are horrendous.

    So horrendous that you post about it ? Pretty effective I'd say.

    I'm not sure you understand. I'm asking about the company. I'm not questioning the effectiveness of their ad's, I'm asking if people have information on the company or any experience with using them.

    Terrible ad does not equal terrible company. My opinion is that the adverts (haven't seen this one on TV, but saw one similar) are cringeworthy.

    Have you anything constructive to add to the conversation?

    From the small print on their front page:

    "SeanieMac is powered by Boylesports (Isle of Man) Ltd, registered address First Floor, Millennium House, Victoria Road, Douglas, IM2 4RW, Isle of Man is regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission. The licence was issued under the Online Gambling Regulation Act 2001 on 31 August 2012."

    Basically use the same software and have the same odds as Boylesports but just have a different name.

    That's the line I was referring to in my first post. I'm not sure that I see the point of it, in that case. Any thoughts?

    Not really sure as Boylesports are quite Irish market focused already.

    I guess they are just throwing another coal into the fire that is already raging, and harm in that?

    There's no harm. But if they're offering the same site format and odds as Boyles it seems to be an exercise in futility, in my opinion. They have some good specials, mind you, but whether they can find a market share on this alone remains to be seen. I'm

    I'd be interested to know who has bankrolled the launch and advertising campaign. And for that matter, who is Seanie Mac? :pac:

    I was just wondering the same thing myself. Is he the dopey looking master of the obvious in the ad, or is he the guy who has set up this division of Boyle? Maybe there's a little Seanie Mac inside of all of us, waiting to break free. I think it's kind of a dumb name for a company.

    The guy in the ad above is Anthony Rainbow, former Kildare footballer. Their ads seem to be GAA focussed, I've seen two of the six ads they've made and both were GAA players.

    They have some good specials,

    Must have missed those ones?:confused:

    I wondered the same thing about this company after seeing it's just a Boylesports with a different colour website, same prices.
    Are they are trying to get punters who may or may not want to bet with Boylesports?
    Wonder if you get closed with Boylesports, could you open up a Seaniemac account or do they share details?

    There you go, so. Spoilsports looking to extend their market share by "inventing" another bookmakers.

    There was a piece in the Sunday Times a while back, pay walled so no link, but Seanie Mac is one of the McEniffs from Bundoran, him or another family member have a small shop in the town, I met with the owner a while back and he seemed be thought an overround was was a fat guy.

    To answer your question, SeanieMac is Ireland's Sean McEniff, of Ireland hotel fame, and others, who have teamed with a USA public Company and BoyleSports to launch an Online Casino and SportsBook in Ireland.

    The Site just went completely live 2 weeks ago, and the underlying stock is up over 200% since the launch, but still way down from where it was trading before the launch delays.

    Compliance Systems, is the name of the USA public company, trades on USA exchange under the ticker symbol COPI, and there is a Stock Blog in USA that features Compliance Systems and SeanieMac that can be found on investorshub . com. If you log onto that site, get a price quote on COPI, then from that page click on message board, and you will find the blog.

    Irish money seems to be funding the rollout of the site, and it seems to be well received. Hope this was helpful

    still dont get this advert if you were so unsure why would you have a bet!! last week i put 30 quid on cork to beat limerick.... i was full sure cork were goin to win thats why i put the bet on...fair enough i lost but my mind was made up.

    these guys in the advert look like they havent a clue on the outcome but still insist on betting awful marketing if you ask me, but then agin it got our atention

    they may take our attention but they'll never take our money (well mine at least, and i like a punt)

    These are just the first commercials... I believe they are just mainly to get the seaniemac name out there... If you are Irish, then you may recognize the athletes that are making the statements.

    There will be more ads about the seaniemac Casino games also. I have been seeing web advertising featuring the 20 pound bet match sign up bonus also on sites like Irish Racing Post, so there is quite extensive advertising of the new site.

    The fact that Boylesports built Seaniemac with a similar layout is what attracted me to the investment in COPI stock, as the BoyleSports, love em or hate em is a big operation, and the possibilities that SeanieMac will be successful seem good with BoyleSports being a partner.
