betbutler mr greenBet Butler has signed a new deal with the Football League to provide bookmaking services to the competition’s 72 clubs and at the same time distanced itself from the financially unstable Worldlink Group. The two-year deal means that Bet Butler’s unique service will be offered to fans of all Football League clubs via their respective websites and a share of the money bet will go back to the clubs. People betting will get the best odds from around 60 different bookmakers. That is just the start though.

“We are extremely excited about the next stage in our development, and this partnership with the Football League. Bet Butler also expect to announce direct agreements with a number of Premier League Clubs in the near future,” a Bet Butler spokesperson confirmed to CalvinAyre.com.

We mentioned earlier that Bet Butler has close links with technology company Worldlink Group and they confirmed that they have “no financial or technical links” to them. It will put the minds of those worried about Worldlink being wound up to rest and it sounds as though none of the deals already signed with Premier League clubs are in jeopardy.

Belgium has added five sites to its online gambling blacklist with the number in the doghouse reaching 50 as a result. The Belgian Gaming Commission announced the new names earlier this week and includes bwin.party’s Gamebookers brand as well as the following sites: GamingClub.com, SupremePlay.com, SpinPalace.com and agrandtopeudice.com. Companies on the blacklist can expect fines of up to €100,000 if they continue to offer services to Belgian customers. Users themselves are also subject to €25,000 fines if they are found to be utilizing a site on the blacklist. You have been warned!

Swedish-facing Mr Green has signed a payment processing deals with Realex Payments. The deal will see Realex provide a number of services to Mr Green and will allow the firm to process “high volumes of transactions through multiple channels and territories” according to Ian Kay from Realex Payments. 188BET, Betsafe.com, 32Red and IG Group are all already on Realex’s books.
