Opera Ordered to Unblock Betting Firm Odibets on its Website!

Multinational technology firm, Opera Software Ireland Limited, has been ordered to unblock a local betting firm and allow its gamblers to access the site. Odibets

The Competition Authority of Kenya (CAK) made the ruling last week, saying that the tech firm has financially hurt Odibets by denying punters access and redirecting them to the sites of rival betting firms.

The decision comes at a time when betting firms have been barred from displaying advertisements on the speed dial feature of Opera, without approval from the betting regulator.

“Opera Software Ireland Limited is directed to, with immediate effect, cease and desist from causing financial harm by blocking Odibets from accessing its browser and from further redirecting its customers to other betting sites,” CAK says in the notice issued on Wednesday last week.

The competition watchdog says that the directive will be in force until the completion of an ongoing probe between the betting firm and Opera. Opera Odibets
