Intralot’s Cypriot subsidiary has been awarded a new two-year licence to operate land-based betting in the Mediterranean country. The Royal Highgate Public Company Ltd got the “A class” betting licence under the country’s new law that covers firms with a desire to offer retail betting in Cyprus. RHPC’s manager, Vassilis Yakoumis, added: “Being the first operator to receive the new betting license reiterates our commitment to sustained compliance with the legislative framework of the jurisdictions where we operate and underlines our strategic decision to continue our successful operations in the country”. Cyprus’ online betting legislation has been a source of controversy since it was adopted in July with OPAP the only firm permitted to offer sports betting and a passive numbers game. There seems no such problem in the land-based industry though.
