Serie A suspends 1xbet sponsorship

16 Nov 2017

Serie A suspends 1xbetThe Italian Serie A took a bold step on Wednesday 15/11 and decided to suspend their sponsorhsip with Russian bookmaker 1xbet. As quoted by the league's officials, promoting the services of 1xbet was deemed as being in direct conflict with 1xbet's ban from the Gaming Regulatory Body of Italy, Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli (ADM).

The deal was set to last for the 2017/2018 season and included promoting the name & logo of 1xbet, on all markets besides Asia. The hostily of the AMD is attributed to the fact that 1xbet is licensed and regulated by the Curacao Internet Gaming Authority and does not hold an Italian license. They "Agenzia" requested that 1x bet be removed as Serie A sponsors not only due to their lack of a local licence, but also "their repeated attempts to offer online sports betting through mirror sites". The league officials may have agreed to suspend the sponsorship, but not without offering their remarks on the fact that many Serie A clubs hold sponsorships with unlicensed foreign iGaming operators. They believe that targeting the league & its association while letting the very same clubs that compose the league freely promote unlicensed bookies, is a clear sign of setting double standards.

The AMD is well known to be a strict regulator and has created an extensive lists of blocked operators (blacklist), where 6720 betting sites appear. 1xbet have been blocked from many regulatory authorities around the world, mainly due to the fact that they operate via a Curacao issued license and have abstained from obtaining local ones.

BOOK SPY BONUS REVIEW

1xBet has been around since 2011 and it will not be an exaggeration to say that they have become a global brand. They are by far the fastest growing bookmaker. 1xBet.com still have a grey approach, but is on course to pass to more white markets, even if this effort seems like proceeding with baby steps. I have to admit that 1xBet is a massive trend among the players, due to top odds, super live streaming, close to instant withdrawals and a state-of-the-art mobile app. But it doesn't mean that the book doesn’t have disadvantages. The platform offers so many markets and products that becomes quite complicated for recreational users. Also, with a simple seach you will find some complaints, but it should be noted that the percentage of these does not exceed the rate of dissatisfied customers existing at every other book. Overall, 1xBet is regarded as one of the best globally and it is worth sticking with them.
