This week 888 is withdrawing from the Portuguese market according to an email sent to affiliates.
The email notification read:
"We are writing to inform you that due to recent regulation changes in Portugal, we have decided to terminate the offering of our services to players from Portugal.
"We have therefore stopped all marketing activity in Portugal as of today, and ask you to discontinue targeting and cease all marketing activities towards players in Portugal with immediate effect."
There have been complaints from operators with regard to the high tax rate that comes with Portugal’s recently licensed and regulated market.
