Asianbookie is the oldest forum dedicated to sports betting in Vietnam, with a history of over 15 years. It was established as a platform for Asian sports betting enthusiasts to discuss and exchange information. It attracts participants from various countries in Asia, including China, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, and notably, Vietnam.
The Vietnamese branch of Asianbookie is considered a hot forum due to its high daily traffic and frequent posting of information. The forum serves as a hub for members from different Asian countries to interact and enhance their sports betting skills.
One notable aspect of Asianbookie is its organization of Tipters competitions, which are held seasonally and have been continuously organized for many years. These competitions allow members to identify skilled bettors who can provide reliable advice for others to follow. The Tipters competitions typically last over two and a half months and attract at least 4,000 participants, which is quite impressive.

Cadovn.com is a Vietnamese online sports betting forum established by the Vietnamese community and exclusively caters to Vietnamese users. It has been in operation for over 10 years. Cadovn.com organizes its content into separate discussion forums, covering different leagues, sports, off-field stories related to sports betting, and a special section dedicated to sponsorships by bookmakers.
Similar to Asianbookie, Cadovn.com experiences a significant amount of traffic and is considered the second most popular forum after Asianbookie in Vietnam. The presence of active bookmakers in Vietnam on the forum provides members with additional options to engage in online sports betting. Discussions about sports betting strategies, live betting, and odds selection are also lively on the forum.
However, one limitation of this forum is its confined scope within Vietnam, which limits its diversity. Furthermore, some members believe that Cadovn's administration tends to manipulate the forum by allowing bookmakers to operate, leading to conflicts and unhealthy competition among them, ultimately affecting the members' experiences.
Looking back at the past
During the peak period of sports betting forums, which was likely between 2012 and 2014, two breakthrough forums emerged: Mybet.vn and Pro186.com. Mybet attracted a considerable number of participants and operated similarly to Cadovn. Unfortunately, in 2014, the website was raided and shut down by the authorities.
This approach allowed skilled bettors to be ranked based on their performance, and the forum rewarded them with monthly salaries, sometimes enabling them to buy and sell tips with other members. This system promoted fairness and greatly appealed to the community. Surprisingly, no other platform in Vietnam has successfully inherited or replicated this model.
During its most active period, the forum reached a remarkable daily traffic of 10,000 users, a dream number for a sports betting forum in Vietnam at that time. However, the forum's existence was short-lived, as it collapsed just three years later during the anticipation for the 2014 World Cup when it was shut down by the Ministry of Public Security. This left members bewildered, and others expressed regret because Pro186 held great potential for the sports betting community in Vietnam.
