bwin goes legal in Belgium
Bwin officially started to offer on legal basis its main products (sports betting, casino and poker) in Belgium after the company finally was granted with A+ gaming license by the Kansspelcommissie. Belgian players can join the new .BE site (available in French, Dutch, German and English) and take advantage of the new welcoming bonuses - 100% on the first deposit (up to 50 EUR) for sports betting, 100% (up to 200 EUR) in the casino and 100% (up to 500 EUR) for poker.

Belgian players faced serious problems to gamble online after new regulation came in force in 2012 and the local authorities blocked access to numerous popular bookmakers on the net (including bet365, William Hill, Betfair, Expekt, 188bet, bet-at-home, Betsson).
For the moment, the only two legal gambling operators in Belgium (besides a short list of local firms) are bwin
which was awarded with a license in July'2012.
