Ladbrokes, bwin.party, Betfair among German licence recipients
Ladbrokes, bwin.party and Betfair head up a list of 20 operators to receive a German sports betting licence, eGaming Review can reveal.
The trio of big names find themselves among a list of domestic operators such as mybet, ODS ODDSET and Digibet, as well as predominantly land-based firms such as Admiral Sportwetten.
However, several of the online gambling sector’s biggest names are noticeable by their absence.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said the company was pleased to have secured a licence in the country, but said it would wait to see the next steps in the regulatory process before detailing the company’s plans for the market.
“It’s an interesting opportunity for Ladbrokes. Over the long term it has the potential to complement our licensed and regulated operations in Australia, Spain and Belgium as we seek to build our international presence,” the spokesperson added.
It is expected unsuccessful applicants will mount a legal challenge against in the coming weeks, which may delay those in receipt of a licence from launching operations in the country.
Louif Paradis’ name wasn’t always synonymous with street snowboarding. That took work. Day after day, Louif grew up snowboarding the streets of Quebec City, focusing on simply riding his best, keeping his style on point, and riding spots that were unique and original. This dedication came from visualizing tricks it in his head and countless attempts. As a result, he’s netted a solid 13 video parts put out over the past 13 years.
Last year, TransWorld SNOWboarding awarded Louif with Video Part of the Year, while his film, Déjà vu won TransWorld SNOWboarding video of the year. Louif is well respected in the industry for his hard work and because he hasn’t bought into any bullshit trends. He has let his snowboarding do the talking.
Louif’s not loud, flashy, obnoxious or gaudy. He’s soft-spoken, meticulous, inspired by his friends, and interested in improving his life and his riding.
