European Governments try to silence "Right2bet"

Watch the videos European governments don’t want people to see!

Viral videos created by consumer choice champions to illustrate the unfair nature of current European betting restrictions are being blocked from being advertised on websites across Europe, the campaign claimed this week.

The series of spoof videos show the ‘Renegade Ref’ let loose on the streets, imposing random rules on innocent members of the public. With his trusty whistle never far from his lips, he brandishes red and yellow cards at any unsuspecting victims who fall foul of his very own unfathomable instructions.

Right2bet is calling for EU Member States to end state gambling monopolies and commercial protectionism and allow their citizens the same freedom to bet with any licensed European betting company that UK citizens have. The campaign urges consumers/players to back it by signing a petition at

The very laws that prevent people in countries such as France, Germany, Sweden, Finland and The Netherlands from choosing their betting provider are forcing some websites and bloggers in those countries to reluctantly turn away the informative but fun videos.

Michael Robb, right2bet spokesperson, said: “The ridiculousness of European betting laws has never been better demonstrated. The ‘Renegade Ref’ videos are encouraging people to join our consumer campaign and make a stand for freedom of choice. But because the campaign is linked to betting as opposed to any other leisure industry, we’re told that many websites are worried they may not be allowed to show the material.

“It’s farcical – they’re free to put them up if we don’t pay them, but not if they’re commercially advertised. It proves our point that these outdated laws are impinging on people’s freedom, not just to bet, but also to express opinion. This is fundamentally against what the EU should stand for.”

The videos are allowed to be advertised in countries which allow betting advertising, such as the UK.

Right2bet wants to generate one million signatures for its online petition to persuade the EU Commission that state betting monopolies are illegal, unfair, and curtail consumer freedom of choice.

Betting companies within the EU are currently barred from expanding into other European countries including Germany, France, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands because of regulations that force their citizens to use just one or two betting providers based within their own borders, contradicting EU principles of free trade among Member States.

    "   TO PLAYERS that are GETTING the 5 free spins: do u get these free spins everytime they are offered? the last time i deposited here was nearly 2 yrs ago... back then free spins were givin to active players and u were considered an active player if u made a deposit within the last 3 months i deposited again 3 months ago and missed out on them 4 times so i emailed support and asked why i wasnt gettin them.  i was told that the promotional free spins are givin out to players randomly and that i had just missed out.  anyways... since then i have been LUCKY enough to have gotten them twice but still UNLUCKY coz they expired on me!! back then they were valid for 4-5 days...... now they are only valid for 1 day!!  "

    "Brian- That is not true. You tell me when the last time a VIP host was in conact with me??. I am asking for a 2 btc gift to satisfy me for being level 5. Your casino cleary stated a specail git would be give for each of the 5 levels. In addtion Brian, am I not correct that your betsoft games the max amount of spins were changed to a max of 20 cents pers spin from 40 cents. Why was not the players informed of this? My comments are honest and fair. The only time I saw your name in an email fto me is in regaring the monthly loyalty gift (which all players get) I am here to be honest and fair with my assesement on my treatment. And over 60,000 dollars in depsoits I think I have the right to  voice an opinion.  "
