BWin is now officially live and accepting online sports bets in Russia, the first foreign operator to become licensed since sports betting rules were relaxed two years ago.
Following a partnership between BWin brand owner GVC Holdings and Alexander Mamut who owns Digital Betting LLC the Bwin.ru band already has a three year plan in place.
Launching with a shared bonus of around €1.5 million to new customers a spokesperson said:
““Our entry into the Russian market is thought to be a pioneering movement – we are the first foreign brand to operate in the market ever – and will pave the way for the entrance of other major betting sites”
So what do you think, should we start offering Russian betting tips?
Bandy is a form of ‘Russian Hockey’, perhaps we have some budding tipsters out there?
