Today i heard that one more big name added lately in the list that stopped operating in Greece
due to the new stupid regulations here.
As the title say its William Hill.
Its been sometime also that Titan Poker stopped too, and if i remember right, the same thing
must have happened with Intertops too.
They are dropping like flies Smile

Those regulations are killing off online gambling, and as a big corporation Will Hill seems to be very cautious. They don't accept bets from Germany anymore, too.

It's not just those 2, Ladbrokes closed as well, when Titan did, and a few days ago Betfair and Everest closed too.

Of cause all the reputable operations are leaving. What happens if the companies operate in a legaly grey area, one only needs to look at the US poker market, and the problems there.

Unfortunately, it's easier to pull out than to set up to comply with the new tax regs. Perfect example of another gov "bright" idea going bad. As the saying goes...if dynamite were brains, they wouldn't have enough to blow their nose...so sad.

I was wrong after a ll about Intertops.
It was Ladbrokes that phoenix mentioned that stopped operating too.
Havent checked about Intertops though, and who knows who will follow the next few days.
The one thing for sure is, that some companies have taken the issue to EU and arent
complying so far.
