Hello,

Very disappointed today by logging in ...

I no longer see the "challenge" tab ... I guess we are more entitled to it by being Belgian !?

New Belgian legislation is one thing ... But that you do not communicate at all on this subject, it is unacceptable !!

Gambling is pretty much over for Belgians. Especially on Unibet. No replacement of the easter calender they have everywhere else etc... what a shame Smile

Unibet please find a solution (adjusted rake for Belgians for exemple) or many of us will have to stop playing on your great site! (i know i will unfortunately)

We will be sending out communication about it asap. This has all happened really fast, and the top priority has been to remove it.

We're of course extremely sorry about this situation, but it's not like we had a choice in the end. Lower rake on a market level is not technically possible today Sad

@TDW Unfortunately it wasn't possible to create a parallel calendar promotion for Belgians that would follow the new legislation. The most important for us in this process is to follow the rules for the market we're operating in, and as such the focus is to make sure we're being compliant and not issuing promotions that doesn't work within the new rules. These are the decisions we must make as a company, even though they can seem disheartening as a player.

I'm curious about your comment "Especially on Unibet" though and I hope you might explain a bit further: How are we different from other sites in this regard?

Not sure what is allowed at this time still, but I do know the Belgian legistation is a joke!

Would it maybe be possible to have a monthly Belgians only freeroll? That way there is at least some form of rakeback.
Depending on how much rake you paid, you would get entry to a €1K, €5K or a €10K freeroll or something? Smile

@Jeppe-Unibet 

It's been a month since I asked the question ... (https://www.unibetcommunity.com/t5/General-Poker/Bonuses-and-promotions-for-Belgian-players/td-p/315...) I was "answered" if we want ... But we don't deserve a news?

To answer your question on "other sites ...", Bwin (partypoker) had also withdrawn all promotions and recently, the rakeback offer came back for example ...

Sorry, but I just have the feeling that Unibet simply forgets us ...
It does not matter if the Belgian community is not large enough in your eyes, I will put my money elsewhere ... (Regret, I liked unibet before ...)

Hey @Jeppe-Unibet, of course its possible to create a parallel calender promotion with other stuff that is still OK according to the law.
Btw, any chance you could elaborate or link to the new laws?

Let's just compare Unibet with another Belgian casino that I will not name explicitly.

Okay, unibet has a few specific "boosted odds" on a game barely anyone cares about (OK the market is ofc extremely small at the moment....):

2.8 --> 3.25 (mildy interesting)
8.0-->9.0 (not interesting at all)
5.8-->7 (not interesting)

 

PS.: not trying to come over as an ass, just stating what i notice Smile
