Australian watchdog adds six names to its iGaming ‘blacklist’

The Australian Communications and Media Authority has asked Internet service providers to block customers from accessing six more unlicensed online casinos and associated affiliate marketing domains. The organization's ‘blacklist’ of proscribed services now runs to over 500 names.

ACMA blocks the Gamblers lab and LegitGamblingSites-branded domains. The most recent blocking request concerns the services Casino Moons, Winnerama, Extra Vegas and Win Paradise.

ACMA has added six names to its iGaming 'blacklist' and has blocked 568 illicit domains. Over 170 illegal services have pulled out of the Australian market since 2017. ACMA is reminding consumers that even if a service looks legitimate, its unlikely to have important customer protections.

Australian watchdog adds six names to its iGaming ‘blacklist’. One in every 20 Australians now enjoying online gambling had placed their first-ever wager during the initial eight-week coronavirus lockdown.
