1xBet shut down in GB; Gambling Commission investigates FSB relationship

By Matthew Enderby

The British-facing website of operator 1xBet has been taken down and remains offline following a Sunday Times investigation.

The newspaper looked into 1xBet’s global activities, including the promotion of a casino that employed topless croupiers, bets on children’s sports and advertising on illegal websites.

Ben Glass, Communications Manager at the Gambling Commission, confirmed to Gambling Insider the regulator is investigating the operator and its ties to supplier FSB Technology.  

Gambling Insider has contacted FSB for comment.

1xBet recently announced a series of high-profile partnerships with football teams.

On 15 July, it became Chelsea’s global betting partner, following similar agreements with Barcelona and Liverpool. It will also serve as Tottenham Hotspur’s official betting partner for Africa.

The operator is reported to be one of the biggest advertisers on websites that provide illegal streams of English Premier League matches.

Its adverts are promoted on these websites alongside the logos of Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
