Hellenic Gaming Commission Grants NetBet Betting Casino & Poker Licences

The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) has granted NetBet sports betting, casino, and poker licences, making it the latest overseas operator to enter the Greek market.

NetBet will be able to cover thousands of sports markets per month as well as introduce its four thousand casino titles in the sector, including the most up-to-date and popular slot releases, thanks to the newly awarded licences, which will be active for seven years.

Greek footprint

Gabriella Arnatu, CEO of etBet Enterprises said: “We are excited that the Hellenic Gaming Commission granted NetBet Enterprises with these two new licences.

“For over 20 years we have delivered the best sports betting and online casino experience to our players across the world and we are looking forward to growing our footprint in Greece.”

NetBet has also made a commitment to its new Greek consumers in terms of responsible gaming, with a heavy focus on player safety and the use of ‘state-of-the-art’ encryption security software.

Other regulated markets

Aside from Greece, the company operates in a number of other regulated European markets, including its home market of the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Italy, and Romania, where it holds a 10-year class 1 licence.

In 2016, NetBet, a UK-based bookmaker, became the first British gambling operator to accept Bitcoin as a form of payment for both sportsbook and casino products, with payments made through the Neteller and PaySafe payment networks.

Due to its multi-European market expansion strategy and focus on localised operations and customer service, the company was awarded the ‘European Sports Betting Operator of the Year’ award at the inaugural Central & Eastern European Gaming Awards (CEEGA) in the same year, beating out competitors Unibet and Sportingbet.
