No winning hand for BWIN against Belgian government

June 2012

In a judgment delivered on 13 June, the President of the Court of First Instance of Brussels has denied a request by BwinParty, operator of the online gambling website www.bwin.com, to order the Belgian Gaming Commission to remove www.bwin.com from its blacklist and to unblock access to it. The President found that BwinParty’s request had no legal merit.

Philippe Vlaemminck and Bart Heynickx, lawyers at ALTIUS, represented the Belgian Government and the Gaming Commission in this case. Philippe Vlaemminck is very pleased that the judge has confirmed that the policy and initiatives of the Gaming Commission are legal, thus boosting the efforts to protect consumers from illegal gambling website operators in Belgium.
