Belgium has reduced the maximum number of online sports betting licensees permitted from 34 to 31 through a new royal decree amending an earlier decree.
The Royal Decree of 22 December 2010 regarding the maximum number of online sports betting operators set the number of licensees allowed from 2010 until 2020 at 34.
With this law having expired, a new decree was issued by the country’s government, which will last until 31 July 2022. Under this new decree, the number of F1 licensees, which may offer online sports betting, is reduced to 31.
Currently, the Commission has issued 24 active F1 licences, with Unibet, Bwin and Betway among those licensed.
