National Gambling Office (ONJN), Romania’s gambling regulator, has included 20 new igaming websites into its black list. There are some popular websites in the list, including Megapari.com, Fivecasino.net, 22-bet.net and 488365.com, which leads to Bet365.
When a website is added to the ONJN’s blacklist, the Romanian internet service providers must block the websites within 15 days of receiving notification from the regulator.. There are 1,184 ISPs functioning in Romania. They are likely to get the notification within 48 hours of publishing the blacklist.
Once the barring of domains is in effect, the visitors to the website will get the following message: “Your access to this site has been restricted by the National Gambling Office.”

NOVOMATIC Attains G4 Certificate in Italy and Spain
NOVOMATIC has announced that it has been certified in Italy and Spain for its player protection and the protection of minors by the Global Gambling Guidance Group (G4).
For NOVOMATIC, as an international operator of gaming venues as well as a globally exporting technology supplier, Responsible Gaming has always been a top priority. Following the certifications already achieved by the top-selling subsidiaries in Austria, Germany, the UK and the Netherlands, the G4 certification in Italy and Spain now underlines NOVOMATIC’s position as a leading supplier of Responsible Gaming in these core markets, as well.
Johannes Gratzl, Member of the Executive Board of NOVOMATIC, said: “The successful G4 certification according to the highest international player protection standard now also in Italy and Spain is a remarkable success for us and proves the high importance of player and youth protection at NOVOMATIC.”
Ryszard Presch, his colleague in the Executive Board of NOVOMATIC, added: “As an operator of international casinos and a globally exporting technology supplier, compliance with the strictest Responsible Gaming standards and our commitment to social responsibility are an essential part of our corporate strategy. The certifications in Italy and Spain are further milestones on the chosen path, which will be consistently implemented as we move forward.”
Ynze Remmers, Lead Auditor at G4, said: “G4, as a worldwide accreditation program, urges the gambling industry to take responsibility and minimize the impact of problem gambling on communities. NOVOMATIC, successfully passing audits in their five biggest markets and the Netherlands, with the most recent successful audits in Italy and Spain is showing that the chosen route is working. NOVOMATIC demonstrates that Responsible Gambling and harm minimization is a top priority.”
NOVOMATIC was the first Austrian gaming company to be certified according to the internationally recognised standard, which is considered the strictest in the field of player protection worldwide. The fact that the majority of the Group’s revenues are already certified according to G4 is also unique in the industry. Every three years, the relevant standards are audited in line with the latest scientific findings on the basis of around 100 criteria from all business areas – these include, for example, internal guidelines on prevention training, player and youth protection measures, responsible marketing activities, customer education on the risks of gambling, and self-limitation or blocking options.
