TopSport Podcast Episode 13

The Other Side: TopSport Podcast Episode 13… On this episode of The Other Side, we chat with Tristan from TopSport about the crazy ride that 2020 took us all on, and how it’s changed the betting and bookmaking scene. We also get his thoughts on cricket as the Big Bash kicks off, and his wishlist for betting in 2021…

We’re all punters. And we speak to a lot of other punters. On The Other Side podcast series we jump the fence and speak with Tristan Merlehan, Director at TopSport, to get an insight into modern-day bookmaking.

Tristan takes us through how a modern corporate bookmaker operates, the issues they face, and how changes in racing and sport impact the business.

Have you got a question for Tristan about anything we’ve discussed, or anything else related to bookmaking? Just get in touch with us and we’ll ask him on the next episode.
