Betclic Ready to Re-Enter Belgium Market?

belgium 2Belgium news sources have reported that French sports betting operator Betclic Everest Group (Betclic) is collaborating with the national Gambling Commission with a view of re-entering the market.

The operator has had a troubled history with Belgium’s authorities who in February 2014 seized €600,000 of Betclic funds, stating that the unlicensed operator had breached gambling laws by digitally transacting with national consumers.

French licensed and Malta operated Betclic has been on the national operator blacklist since 2012. The Belgian Gambling Commission (BGC) has further issued consumer fines to Betclic customers for interacting with the operator.
