Bet365 Claims They’re Not Breaking Chinese Gambling Laws

One of the world-leaders in online gambling is rejecting accusations that they are breaking Chinese gambling laws.

Bet365 has grown to become one of the largest online gambling sites in the world. They operate in many countries all over the world, but as they are now claiming, not in China. Bet365 is rejecting accusations made by Spotlight Research that claims the company is running a gambling site catering to Chinese customers.

In a statement to igaming business, Bet365 claimed the report was “self-serving, misleading and inaccurate.” They expanded further by stating, “Bet365 is a remote gambling operator that takes its legal and regulatory obligations very seriously, Bet365 is licensed to undertake its activities by relevant regulatory authorities across a variety of jurisdictions and is compliant with all applicable legislation.”

Considering the recent troubles that a group of Australians had in China with regards to gambling, it seems wise that they would cut all business ties with the country. Chinese gambling laws ban all forms of wagering, and harshly prosecutes anyone caught.

What kind of games does Bet365 offer?

As one of the biggest and most popular gambling sites in the world, Bet365 offers a wide range of amazing gambling options for players. Their sportsbook section is likely what they’re known best for. It offers players access to a massive list of sports betting lines, as well as some novelty sports bets. There is also a live betting option where players can stream games live and make bets as it unfolds.

Bet365 also operates an amazing casino and bingo section of their site. The casino has grown to become very popular over the years, offering many different games including roulette, blackjack, and online slot games.
