Spanish and Belgian Casino Updates

The growing popularity of online casino sites around the world means that more and more countries are now issuing licenses to gaming sites and putting their regulations in order.

The next county to get its internet gaming scene on track is likely to be Spain. There are said to be some issues still to be resolved but the Spanish online gambling regulators are believed to be confident of being able to issue licenses at the start of June this year.

It has been rumoured for some time that the number of applications,
the firm’s changes in staff and even legal challenges would force them to put back the date for these licenses to be given out. However, at the time of writing the latest word from the Iberian Peninsula is that the deadline of the 1st of July still stands.

The total number of applications which have been received to date reaches almost 60 and before long we should find out which ones have been authorised to go ahead.

Some Sites Banned in Belgium

Meanwhile, across in Belgium, the national Gambling authority has given out a new list of the online casino sites which are blacklisted. The list is pretty extensive and includes some of the sites which are big names in other parts of the world, including the UK.

These are sites which they say are operated illegally from outside of Belgium. Any Belgian based players who use one of these sites and are caught can expect a fine of €2,500 to come winging their way. These sites who offer gambling services to Belgian residents without the proper license face fines of up to €100,000 for doing so.
