BETTER NEWS FOR BET365
 
Following that hefty Australian fine….a licence to operate in Bulgaria.
 
UK online gambling group Bet365, which was hammered this week by a A$2.75 million fine in Australia ) evened things out with better news as the week ended – an operating licence from the Bulgarian regulator.
 
The Bulgarian State Commission on Gambling (SCG) awarded the licence to Bet365s Malta-based subsidiary Hillside (New Media Malta) Limited following earlier confrontations over the licensing process in which the operator was at one stage blacklisted.
 
The licence awarded to the gambling group is the tenth to be issued by the SCG, with eleven sites currently live and legal in the eastern European country. PokerStars, Betfair and Eurobet are all legally active in the market under dot.com or dot.bg domains.
