Betsson Re-Directs Online Gamblers on NordicBet

NordicBet offers a competitive gaming and betting service that attracts customers from all over the world, with a focus on European sports, including an extensive range of local sport betting opportunities. The firm operates mainly in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. NordicBet specializes in offering sports betting odds.

NordicBet, recently notified its players that it will no longer provide its gambling services outside of the Scandinavian region including Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Faroe Islands as of January 2, 2014.

With no apparent reason NordicBet has decided it will no long accept new clients from other areas. In an e mail to punters registered with the web site the company informs its clients to go to, "...our flagship brand, where you can continue to play all your favourite casino games, bet on all your favourite sports or participate in poker tournaments."

Betsson Malta Ltd. is an online gambling company that offers online poker, online casino, scratch cards and sports betting. The company is headquartered in Stockholm Sweden and is owned by the OMX listed public company Betsson AB. The firm acquired competitor Nordic Gaming Group in 2012 due to its successful sportsbook. This established the strong position in the Nordics even further.

Betsson was also awarded the "Online Sportsbook Operator of the Year" by the International Gaming Awards.

The e- mail states "You will able to withdraw your Poker, Casino & Bingo funds from your account at all times until the 02/02/2014 - If you have Poker funds, on the 30th of December these funds will transfer to your Sportbook account and your Poker account will be closed.”

The e-mail continued, “You will be able to withdraw your Sportsbook funds 30 days after the last bet has been settled.” The reduced services for the punters in the Scandinavian jurisdiction won’t dramatically affect the company but may cause a few customers to jump ship.
