Launch of Ladbrokes.be site includes iPoker action
Playtech may have departed the ring-fenced Belgian online gambling market in a general sense, but its iPoker product apparently remains accessible to Belgian punters through the newly launched Ladbrokes.be website.
Licensed by the Belgian Gaming Commission, the Playtech-powered site is in partnership with the Middelkerke Casino-Kursaal NV, one of nine land based casinos in the European country. A third company, Derby SA, is mentioned in the licensing documentation with this declaration:
"The Belgian Gaming Commission, an institution responding to the Federal Department of Justice, has granted licences to Derby S.A. for organising and running bets (granted on ), as well as for organising and running bets through information society tools (granted on , licence number FA+126426).
"Derby has established a partnership with Middelkerke Casino-Kursaal NV (Mikas) for offering and running online casino games on the website www.ladbrokes.be. The Gaming Commission has granted an A+ Licence to Mikas (A+8107, granted on ) to run games of chance by means of information society tools."
