The Constitutional Court of Belgium ordered that the Belgian Gaming Commission (BGC) has no power to issue a single gambling license to online operators that provide more than one product through the matching URL.

The legal action started after Rocoluc NV, a land-based operator, question the practices of the Belgian gaming Commission (BGC) as it believed that online operators should accept the same treatment as land-based operators, which can not offer different types of gambling in the same venue.

Despite the lawsuit, the company provides online casino games through the Casinobelgium.be domain.

while the BGC still has to make remark on the ruling, it seems like an appeal is on the way.

If the appeal fail, Belgian-licensed operators could be propel to end operations or make another application for licenses for each of the online products they want to provide.

The local business is one of the most restrictive on a global level, and it is becoming worse for online operators.
