According to the Australian Communications and Media Authority’s recent news, more casinos have been blocked.
The ACMA conducted several investigations based on complaints and found out that some online casinos didn’t comply with current gambling regulations and requirements for operators. The Interactive Gambling Act 2001 includes a set of rules for digital services providers, which are obligatory for following. The absence of the license is one of the requirements that haven’t been met by the offshore operators.
Eighteen gambling platforms were blocked
It is worth mentioning that it isn’t the ACMA’s first attempt to fight against the black market in Australia. Earlier, the authority has already added more than two hundred gambling platforms to the blacklist. With the introduction of tighter restrictions for overseas operators, which took place in 2017, over 100 online casinos were banned.
Another portion of websites that have been blocked includes 7 Bit Casino, BitStarz, Syndicate Casino, Golden Star Casino, and others. The ACMA addressed Internet providers with the demand to stop the operation of these gambling platforms in the country’s territory immediately. Now, players located in Australia while visiting the casinos will see a message informing them that they try to access an illegal website.
