Belgium Suspends Ladbrokes Gaming License

This week Belgium's gaming regulator, the Belgian Gaming Commission, announced that they'll be suspending the gaming license of Ladbrokes for 24 hours after the company offered unsanctioned bets in the country.

The suspension will take place on September 3rd and will see the company blocked from taking any retail or online bets for Ladbrokes, which operates in the country under the subsidiary name Tiercé Ladbroke brand and Derby SA. The company committed the offense of offering virtual betting, part of which is not allowed in the country.

The company reportedly offered the activity until earlier this year, and for a while was the only operator able to offer virtual betting in retail locations.

According to the BGC, Ladbrokes has not contested the case, and they have not yet issued comment as of press time.

Well I'm not surprised they suspended the license but I am however surprised that Ladbrokes offered unsanctioned bets. As a major provider they should have known better.

Because I'm a bit (or a lot) naive I would say it could of been just a mistake by oversight from Ladbrokes but in any case purposely or not they've done the sin offering a games they've not supposed to and the price they'll pay for that will be expensive, if it's been a mistake it will be really a costly one and if not..well, the deserved whole the punishment they've got then.
