Mayan launched in 1998 using betting software developed by Cyberoad. This was the same technology powering other early internet sportsbooks including The Big Book, and Grand Prix Sports. These sites used the eBanx payment processor allowing them to accept deposits through credit card and withdrawals via e-check.

Cyberoad closed in 2000 after raising money to go public. It's assets were acquired by El Moro Finance on July 20, 2000.[1]. The betting software was allocated to a subsidiary eSportz. Mayan was left offline after failing to reach an agreement with the new distributor. During this time eSportz created their own sportsbook Bodog, and contacted Mayan's customers informing them that their account information had been transferred over if they wanted to switch sites.
