Tuesday August 7,2012 : BODOG EUROPE EXIT LIST (Update)
Online gambling provider is focusing on better customer service
We have received an response from Bodog.co.uk on our story earlier today on the internet gambling company's withdrawal from certain European countries.
The statement notes that:
“The only countries affected are: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Israel, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovenia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.
"We feel it is better to concentrate on our strengths and where we can offer the best product. The Bodog brand is known for its high level of customer service & spreading ourselves too thinly to try and cover a huge amount of smaller markets was proving logistically difficult. Bodog.co.uk will concentrate on growing existing markets.”
It should also be noted that a number of these countries have become notorious as sources of e-comm fraud.
