bet365 to contest Romania license revoke

romaniabet365 management is considering contesting Romanian ONJN’s decision to blacklist and revoke its online betting license despite paying the regulators obligatory back taxes.

October saw the ONJN publish its latest blacklist of operators deemed to be breaching national gaming laws. ONJN confirmed that it had revoked bet365.com betting licence, but did not clarify its reasons for the repeal.

bet365 management are reported to be surprised by the regulators actions, stating that the company had acted accordingly with pre-licensing concessions ahead of the Romania’s regulating its online gambling market.

International operators have complained about ONJN activities and lack of clarity regarding the newly regulated Romanian online gambling market.

Last week, bwin.party entertainment governance announced that they would contest ONJN decision to blacklist the operator’s casino, sports betting and poker brands. bwin.party confirmed that it had re-paid €8 million in back taxes and having been approved an igaming licence by authorities.

ONJN officials stated that its new blacklist compromised of operators that continue or had previously breached national gaming laws by promoting services to Romanian consumers, whilst ONJN and Romanian lawmakers implemented its new market framework.
