Gaming Firm Bwin Leaving Hungary
Online poker company Bwin is leaving Hungary and 17 other countries, gamer website Ittapiros has learnt. Bwin can easily manage without the Hungarian market, and the state gaming company Szerencsejáték is about to launch its own online services, coincident with stronger pressure from authorities on illegal gambling, the website argues.

The real losers will be the Hungarian media as Bwin spent a lot in Hungary, according to Ittapiros.

Ittapiros is advising Hungarian gamers to withdraw their money from Bwin accounts.
