ACMA Orders ISPs to Block Nine Illegal Offshore Gambling Websites
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has ordered the nation’s internet service providers (ISPs) to block nine illegal offshore gambling websites. These websites include Roo Casino, GW Casino, Wager Beat, Joe Fortune, Ignition Casino, Casino Dingo, AU Slots, Top Bet, and XBet.

According to the ACMA, more than 79 complaints were submitted about these services. The regulator warned Australians to withdraw any funds they have with these sites.

“ACMA investigations found these services to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001,” ACMA said.

These nine new sites follow the blocking of Emu Casino last November, which has since pulled out from the Australian market but continues to allow Australian customers to withdraw funds through its customer support.
