France based Partouche has launched its online casino in Belgium, becoming the first operator to enter the market.
The casino, which is located at partouche.be, makes Partouche the first online operator to establish an online casino in the newly liberalized market. Partouche reportedly worked with the Belgian Gambling Commission to help open the market.
Partouche Casinos Belgium Managing Director Jacques Frojman said: "We are the leading internet operator that also owns land casinos in Belgium . This aspect represents a real added value for our players who know exactly where they can get their questions answered and where they can get help. This aspect will reassure players who doubt the reliability and safety of gambling online."
While the Belgian online market may be new to Partouche, it is not the first gaming experience the company has had in the country of 11 million people. Partouche operates four casinos in Belgium, claiming 40% of the country's gambling market.
