View Full Version : Question for Serbian, Romanian, Bulgarian and Turk friends
Sorry guys, but u could provide much help to me if u can answer (each for his country) to this question:
Is there a bookmaker run by the goverment (the so-called "local" i guess) in ur countries (Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey? I am not talking about private companies (for example, in Germany there is Oddset which belongs to the goeverment and Sportwetten-GERA which is private).
Thanx a lot in advance.
In Serbia there is no state bookie. There are 5-6 big ptivate bookies and dozens of small ones. That's it :)
In turkey it is not legal.. And we don have bookies. Our bookies work from CYPRUS...
And some from ENGLAND..
We have MANY PRIVATE BOOKIES: i think you call them LOCAL BOOKIE ?
But they are illegal. I'm one of them :wink:
If you are asking this for opening a new bookie. Send private message.. And we can talk about it. Cause i only need a place in a country where betting is legal...
I'm thinking of openin a big bookie. Let's see what we can do..
In Romania there is no state bookie. There are 2 big private bookies and 3-4 small ones.
Thank u all guys. i am just missing someone from Bulgaria right now.
Thanx again for ur response
paralias, I think this (http://bettingadvice.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7492&sid=2c5789f5709d535e083c213a59c80a02) is what you're looking for, but you can find almost all legal bookies of the world here (http://www.tbwsport.com/bookmakers.html) (including one from Bulgaria)!
Thank u Tahoma... But as u can see, i am interested in state bookies and not private, as in turkey for instance. the link u provided me with all bookies of the world is useful to one point, since i don't know if Eurofootball (Bulgaria) belongs to the goverment.
The thread about local bookies here, on BA, includes different markets but u saw that all the previews guys mentioned that none of these countries have "state bookies".
Thanx for ur help anyway.
Eurofootball is the ONE AND ONLY bookie in Bulgaria. It is not a state bookie but somehow I think they're more than the state if you know what I mean. They started an online site but simply forgot about it as they have no actual use of it but their payout is about 0.88 - 0.90 which is not bad for their monopoly on the market. Sometimes they offer the highest odds in Europe on away wins and underdogs, that's why I always search for such results. I remember we had sth like state bookie but it was more like lottery and I think it doesn't exist anymore. There was some attempts of other bookies to come to the market but for one reason or another they couldn't exist more than 6 months (Betlay.com was one of them - existed 6 months or so, offering very good odds and payout about 0.93 !! and in a wonderful day they disappeared; the other one was a few years ago - "Football-football" which lasted only 2 weeks and was deemed out-of-the law). So "Eurofootball" is a single bookie in a country of 8 mln. people and have minimum requirement of at least 3 games in a combo - madness !
So our country is a good perspective in developing this market but the future will show if it is possible.
Change to the situation in Turkey:
Since April 2004, the state run Spor Toto company has launched 'iddaa', a fix odds sports betting game where they have 1x2 odds (119 %, minimum 4 selections), HT-FT odds (142 %, minimum 2 selections), new games are to follow they said.But since the odds are low, mostly the people who haven't heard of betting before, or who don't want to bother with internet, wires, credit cards etcetera are playing this game.The maximum payout per winning ticket is 500 billion TL=275,000 Euros.
Now, the biggest threat for punters is for the court to ban all forms of online gaming.We hear state authorities are working on this subject.
