PartyGaming shuts out Turkish market

11 April 2007

PartyGaming announced this morning that it will no longer allow Turkish citizens to play real-money games on any of its sites.

"In light of the passing of recent legislation which prohibits certain forms of online gaming from being offered by an unauthorised domestic or foreign company to citizens in Turkey, (PartyGaming) has now taken all reasonable steps to ensure that customers in Turkey are denied access to any of the Group's gaming sites," the company said in a release.

In late February, Turkish legislators passed a law prohibiting unauthorized operators from providing Internet gambling services. The legislation prompted NETeller and bwin to pull out of the Turkish market in March.

Turkey does allow citizens to make wagers through its state-run monopoly.
