Company Summary

Slipjockey enables sports handicappers to enter and exit legal wager positions for value, as outlooks change due to situations leading up to and during the game, but before the results are determined. We are similar to Betfair, a $2b UK business, but since our users trade instead of bet, we are legal in the United States. We enable traders to opt in and out of positions during the events in question. Our initial target market is Nevada.
