    There was also some concern raised about Gibraltar in Wednesday's Racing Post and the Spanish claims to sovereignty that could emerge as a result of the referendum. Can't find the exact article online but this touches on it: http://www.racingpost.com/news/horse...endum/2107141/

    Hi, I think bet365 will continue operating in EU and i put some text from MGA regulator in Malta, to see, that they has licence from EU country.

    The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has granted a Sports Betting licence (Class 2 Remote Gaming Licence) to bet365 – Hillside (New Media Malta) Limited, a leading online gaming operator providing sports betting, casino and poker type games.
    A spokesperson for bet365 said: “Due to the regulatory developments in various operating territories, bet365 decided that in addition to the remote gaming licences held by our existing operating hub in Gibraltar, a Class II licence by the Maltese Regulator was required in order to obtain and maintain certain regulatory approvals as well as to support its operations in the evolving global regulatory environment.

    Well we've got at least two years to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

    No.

    A pan-EU license would have been a very sensible idea, but never the way it worked. Plenty of countries have their own rules, licenses, etc...

    For a while now you've needed a UK license to legally operate in the UK, regardless of where you're based.

    I dont know, if it will take 2 years or more, cause today i read EU want to be done quicker. Shults and other say no time to wait another prime minister on October to begin the procedure. So will see, but we must think positivelly for our industry and things can get better.

I am a little curious -- Long road ahead but we've been there done this before right everyone will come through this stronger and the bigger companies will fix this in the coming years so i wouldn't just be dropping programs just yet let the dust settle
    It was the original idea of EU. Like 10 years ago, all sportsbooks bet on open EU market. 1st was I guess Bwin vs Portugal, which lost the case after years: http://www.egrmagazine.com/news/bwin...nd_sponsorship

    After Bwin many UK bookies tried to argue that EU is an open market and wanted to go to Europe. They all (Ladbrokes, Betfred..) failed or almost failed, just Bet365 made it through somehow. Since the UK bookies hit the wall in EU I guess it was the pivotal point and they started to lobby at least domestic UK market, so now ironically UK is the closed gambling market of EU.

    It only shows how little law or common market means for EU. The dissolution of EU started long time ago with those details at particular markets. I think there were some ruling for open gambling amrket from EU central, but local courts and governemnts did not pay attention. The result is that EU is a common market only at some areas and for certain people/institutions.

    One of the Australian news stories today reads: "Australians around the world reported an inability to access their money, after the Commonwealth Bank temporarily suspended currency exchanges in the wake of the Brexit referendum result."

    Events like this will only add to the appeal of using cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin as an alternative currency.

    Tbh I'm not sure as almost everyone I know was voting remain. There seems to be distinct regional differences in voting. Age also seems to play a large factor (younger people were more likely to vote remain).

    At a guess probably immigration and money. Those were the two things the leave camp kept harping on about.

    Being governed from Brussels by people the UK electorate never voted for. A bit like USA being governed by a coalition of 27 other countries like Canada, Brazil and Mexico etc. You can be sure Americans would never put up with it.

    Basically remain see themselves as European and leave see themselves as British. The latter resent being under the legal thumb of faceless European bureaucrats.

    As I said a while back on another thread, I met almost nobody who wanted to remain and sure enough the south east of england, where I am, completely voted 'leave'. The bookies odds may reflect weight of money, but they were, for the second time in succession, completely wrong about a UK election. Apparently most money was for remain but the most bets were for leave.

    Yeah it does seem that way - most people seemed to mainly know people voting the same way. Probably a ton of factors behind (social groups, location, age etc...) that but quite interesting in the way it worked.

    There's an article on it here which basically says the same thing: https://next.ft.com/content/d09d47b2...0-b48ed7b6126f

    But either way, at least it's finally done with - I was getting sick of constantly hearing about it. Now if only everyone can stop bickering and get on with the next bit we can move on!

    I agree with that sentiment entirely. I wish all remain voters thought that way. But I think this may not end up being cut and dried. I hope it will be, but there is so much room for a fudge in the negotiations on the brexit. I was encouraged with the hard stance some European leaders took that UK must get on and leave. But they are feeling hurt and maybe they will get back to their norm of indecision and fudging the issues. Problem is Boris Johnson was never really committed to Brexit (he is only fully committed to Boris Johnson) just as Cameron was never fully Remain. So I think this simple in / out vote has room to get very blurred when it comes to negotiating the actual exit. I'll believe a proper exit when I see it.

    Yep and Cameron resigning basically hands the reins to Boris and says 'your political agenda, your mess - you sort it out.'

    Sounds like all the bookies will need an extra Scottish license soon if Nicola Sturgeon has her way, not that she's got any rights to call a new referendum. Lots of companies being forced to relocate and that will include Bookmakers!!

    I find it amazing what's happened - If you were a professional gambler would you let your grandmother choose the horses for you? That's what's happened here with 95% of the UK's population not understanding the first thing about whats going to happen. Lots of the banking sector are preparing to move already, and construction workers who were not happy about the cheap labour will be even less happy when their is nothing to build!!

    Like someone already mentioned, no use crying over spilt milk. If you can't stand the heat in the kitchen, then you know what to do! I prefer to see life has when one door closes, another one opens!!

    To be honest, I'd prefer my grandfather to choose the horses for me instead of some millennial kids that have a comfort zone where everything is organized and paid for them. They're usually not even able to make right choices for themselves, leave alone for other people's horses...
