Eurofootball, betfair.com, pokerstars.com Eye Online Gaming Licences in Bulgaria
Thursday, 23 January 2014
Bulgaria's State Commission on Gambling said that applications for online gambling licences submitted by Bulgaria's Eurofootball and the operators of betfair.com and pokerstars.com are currently pending review.
In addition, many other companies have also shown interest in obtaining online gambling permits, the commission said.
Bulgarian state-owned lottery operator BST and Maltese-registered Eurofootball Limited received at the end of 2013 online gambling permits for toto.bg and efbet.com, respectively, the commission said.
A licensing procedure was introduced in Bulgaria in July 2012 when local legislation was amended to make online gambling subject to regulatory oversight.
