The online gambling site of Russia, Bwin, has permanently shut its door for digital gambling. Also, the planning of Bet365 Russian already started to appear.
The Bwin.Ru site stopped working for the local bettors who found the homepage of the site displaying a message saying “unavailable at present,” which is citing “system maintenance work.” The social media of the site was silent, and questions regarding this went unanswered.
Bwin.ru confirmed on Monday that their closure is based on the “rapidly changing realities and new legislative initiatives.” to make “Bwin’s withdrawal from the Russian market as comfortable as possible for all customers, we have reached an agreement with one of the industry leaders, Parimatch.”
Reportedly the customers are going to find the funds held in Bwin.ru accounts and get them transferred to Parimatch.ru. Also, the customers who decided to wager along with Parimatch are going to receive a unique bonus offer. The migration towards Parimatch is going to get completed by the end of this month.
Ruslan Medved, the Russian CEO, noted that “not all companies are now able to compete with the mastodons and, no less important, with the market itself and its realities.” He further said that Parimatch is going to make the migration as painless as possible for each person while not sacrificing loyalty.
