BETCLIC AWARDED PORTUGUESE ONLINE GAMBLING LICENSE
 
Fourth issued by Serviço Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal
 
The Betclic Everest group has augmented its Portuguese online sports betting license with an online casino license, bringing to four the number of operators licensed by regulator Serviço Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal since the market was liberalized earlier this year.
 
There has not exactly been a rush to license in the new online jurisdiction due to operator concerns regarding high tax rates and government indecision regarding the opening up of the current ring-fenced online poker market.
 
Betclics latest license has been issued to the companies Portuguese subsidiary BEM Operations, which will manage the Betclic.pt website.
