Most of the USA betting sites are offline due to a cyberattack on the SBTech platform, that provides technology to several game companies around the world. 

If you frequently use online bookmakers, you may have noticed that many of them are in maintenance mode, as is the case with bet.en , Our Bet, Luckia or Betway. 

This is not due to a real maintenance of the sites, but to the fact that the platform provider, the company SBTech, was the target of an attack about 4 days ago. 

In addition to the USA houses, there are a number of others around the world that are suffering from the same problem, which for the time being has not yet been resolved.

Why USA sites use SBTech?

Opening a betting site is not a very simple task, and requires a huge effort if the platform is developed from scratch.

Certain sites, such as Betano or Betclic, have chosen this route, as they have an international dimension and an exclusive team working on software development and compiling odds. 

However, for smaller local sites, the obvious choice is an established platform. This company provides the brand with all services (odds, live betting, live video, payment platform), and in return receives a commission or a fixed amount per month. 

The big problem with this choice is the fact that the bookmaker is dependent on the platform's servers to have the site up and running, which can cause interruUSions like this, in case there are problems unrelated to the brand.

When will the sites be back online? 

Perhaps it was not by chance that hackers chose precisely this time of COVID-19 pandemic to attack SBtech, as they know there are hundreds of employees working from home, with fewer resources than usual. 

we don't remember no other situation where it took so long so that an attack could be controlled and resolved. Usually, this type of situation lasts a few hours at most. 

As we are in a time of extraordinary measures, it is possible that SBTech is having additional problems to be able to be sure that everything will work normally again, once the problems are resolved. 

In any case, it doesn't seem to us that this situation can last much longer, since, although there are hardly any sports to bet on at this point, the sites still depend on the small volume of current bets to fulfill their commitments, just like any other company.

If we have any important updates, we will update this article with the latest information.

Good bets, but take care of your safety and health first.
