Belgium Limits Operators to One Betting Product Per URL

Last week Begium's Constitutional Court ruled that the country's regulator was wrong to issue gambling licenses to online operators that offer more than one gaming service on the same website, putting in place a rule that will likely prove to be restrictive in the European country moving forward.

The decision will have a broad effect over the online gaming industry in Belgium, as now it looks like many of the licensed sites will have to significantly alter their online gaming options, with different domains for different products. The case came about as land betting group Rocoluc sued Ladbrokes because of the company's virtual sports services.

Operators will not only have to launch new sites for each product, but also apply for gaming licenses for each of those products. This will likely prove expensive and cumbersome for betting groups, and it'll be interesting to see how the Belgian Gambling Commission decides to tackle the issue.

We'll be updating readers as we learn more about the issue.

Sounds too complicated for me, every product must be offered on it's own site, how many sites a company could have then? It would become too big of a number that way perhaps, probably they should think of better way granting those licences.
