Ladbrokes officially enters regulated Belgian casino gaming market

Ladbrokes now also legally active in BelgiumAfter a short trial period the renowned UK based betting and casino gaming company Ladbrokes, with a history that goes back to 1886 when the firm was founded, yesterday officially entered the regulated Belgian gambling market.

Ladbrokes is one of the biggest land-based and online betting and casino gaming providers in the world and besides sports betting also offers an online poker playing platform, a Live Casino and a flash casino gaming section on its Belgian website.

Ladbrokes was granted 2 licenses by the Belgian online gaming authority, one being for its casino department and the other one for the (sports) betting section. On their Belgian website it`s also possible to play casino games or place bets whenever you want, wherever you are or wherever you go on a mobile device (provided you`ve got a stable internet connection of course).

In the summer of 2013 Ladbrokes signed an agreement with Net Entertainment by which the latter became one of the Ladbrokes online games supplier. In December of the same year Ladbrokes added some of the top Netent games to its portfolio, not surprisingly Netent video slots that can also be played in their mobile casino (existing Netent video slots that are also released in their Netent Touch mobile version). Under these Netent games are illustrious and, both in their desktop version as well as in their Netent Touch edition, extremely popular titles such as video sot Starburst, video slot Gonzo`s Quest and video slot Jack Hammer.

A quick look on the Belgian website of Ladbrokes shows these Netent games aren`t available for our Belgian online casino gaming colleagues yet. However, there`s no doubt in our minds with time Ladbrokes will include Netent games on their Belgian website too, simply because of the enormous popularity of these games.

Ladbrokes Belgium can only accept players who are residing in Belgium (as can every Belgian regulated and therefore legal online casino). So if you`re from the country that hosts both the NATO and the European Union, but you insist on playing only Netent casino games maybe (for the time being) it`s better to head over to Unibet Casino that is equally fully legalized by the Belgian authorities and offers an extended collection of Netent video slots, classic slots, table games and Netent video poker games to its Belgian players.
