Playtech's iPoker Network Still Working In Belgium

Shortly after it announced it was leaving the Belgian online gambling market, Playtech's iPoker product appears to still be available to punters inside the country through Ladbrokes' country-friendly site.

The reasoning for the operational site is a bit of a surprise, but apparently is operating within the licensing regulations in the Western European country. Ladbrokes' Belgian site is a result of a partnership with Middelkerke Casino-Kursaal NV, which operates a land based casino in the country.

A third party mentioned in Ladbrokes' site details is Derby SA, which holds the following documentation from the Belgian Gambling Commission:

"The Belgian Gaming Commission, an institution responding to the Federal Department of Justice, has granted licences to Derby S.A. for organising and running bets (granted on 2 February 2011), as well as for organising and running bets through information society tools (granted on 02 April 2014, licence number FA+126426)."

"Derby has established a partnership with Middelkerke Casino-Kursaal NV (Mikas) for offering and running online casino games on the website www.ladbrokes.be. The Gaming Commission has granted an A+ Licence to Mikas (A+8107, granted on 02 April 2014) to run games of chance by means of information society tools."
