June 2016 brings a new licence for Bet365 in Bulgaria

New gambling laws and gambling license for Bet365

Bet365 might become the best online betting site in Bulgaria, now that the British operator has secured a Bulgarian gambling licence.

The most recent gambling news included countries such as Romania and Bulgaria passing new bills to regulate online gambling in late 2015 and early 2016. 

The new gambling news and the Romanian Gambling Authority left Bet365 without a Romanian gambling license while the Bulgarian State Commission on Gambling (SCG) issued a licence last year for Bet365, only to withdraw it shortly after, leaving Bet365 as one of the most important betting company on the gambling sites blacklist in Bulgaria in 2016. The reason behind the decision of blacklisting Bet365 was (and still is) a mystery; the company as well as the authority haven’t made any declarations so far.

Bet365 in  court

In 2016, Bet365 took both national gambling authorithies to court and while Bet365 lost their case in Romania, the Sofia Administrative Court ruled in favour of the operator, which resulted in SCG issuing a new licence for Bet365 in Bulgaria.

10 gambling operators in Bulgaria hold Bulgarian gambling licences, among which Betfair and PokerStars.
