ACMA Blocks More Illegal Gambling and Affiliate Websites
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has requested the Australian internet service providers (ISPs) to block more illegal offshore gambling and affiliate marketing websites.
The sites include:
Pokies Online Casino
Australian Casino Sites
AU Online Casino
The ACMA undertook investigations that found these sites to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.
Website blocking is one of a range of enforcement options to protect Australians against illegal online gambling. Since the ACMA made its first blocking request in November 2019, 426 illegal gambling websites have been blocked.
Over 160 illegal services have also pulled out of the Australian market since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017.
