gibraltarFollowing its July corporate strategy review French sports betting operator Betclic Everest will close its Gibraltar operations and relocate business functions to its Malta based operational centre.

At the start of 2014, Betclic Everest senior management undertook a corporate review of its igaming operations focusing on improving customer support, IT infrastructure, sports trading and administrative functions.

The news of Betclic Everest departure from Gibraltar follows reports that igaming operator Mansion is set to migrate its Gibraltar operations to Bulgaria.
