William Hill Out of Belgium

April 28, 2014

Powerful online sportsbook William Hill (Rating A at SBA) is pulling out of Belgium starting tomorrow April 29, 2014. The move comes as European Union countries tighten online gambling restrictions. The reason behind the restrictions, you guessed it: Greed. The EU countries are worried about money leaving their country.

Last year Ladbrokes (Rating B+ at SBA) pulled out of Belgium as well. Ladbrokes is the #2 UK based sportsbook behind William Hill. The changes in Belgium have been in the making for some time.

From William Hill email: “This means customers from Belgium will no longer be able to register or place a bet on any William Hill product. ….┬áCustomers in Belgium may continue to withdraw their funds after this date. ┬áPlease feel free to encourage your players to contact Customer Services if they experience any problems accessing their account or withdrawing their funds. “
