The move comes just a few months after the brand abruptly ceased business in Kenya for unknown reasons. However, it is believed that the decision was influenced by the East African country’s ever-changing legislation, particularly those pertaining to taxation.

This announcement comes at a time when the Indian government has taken a firmer stance on online gambling, banning all platforms in May 2023, which was later rescinded after companies like Betway took legal action.

However, the Indian government still maintains a close watch over the industry, with new guidelines being released in August 2023 that ban games involving betting and mandate licensing for online gaming companies.
