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.
