Unibet exits the Russian online gambling market

(Russia).- With Belclic’s decision last week to pull out of the Russian online gambling market still reverberating around the industry, the Swedish online gambling operator Unibet has announced that it intends to follow suit – at least temporarily.

T

he sudden surge of enforcement interest from Russian prosecutors and enforcement officials, leading to more black-listings has certainly caught the attention of online gambling operators working in the region.


Like Betclic, Unibet has commenced by halting new player registrations and taking its foot off the regional marketing pedal for both Unibet.com and sister Maria.com, according to an advisory sent by the company to its affiliates and other partners.


The advisory has made it clear that the company intends to continue serving existing Russian punters, and that its ban on new sign-ups will not include customers from other Russian-speaking nations.
