The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has requested that Australian internet service providers (ISPs) block more illegal offshore gambling websites.
The latest illegal gambling sites blocked are:
- Pokie Island
- Rich Palms
- Lucky Tiger Casino
- Casino Rocket
- Jackpot Jill VIP
- Robin Roo
The ACMA undertook investigations that found these sites to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.
Since the ACMA made its first blocking request in November 2019, 555 illegal gambling websites have been blocked.
Over 170 illegal services have also pulled out of the Australian market since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017.
Website blocking provides a valuable opportunity to alert the public to illegal gambling services through the messaging that appears when there is an attempt to access the site.
The ACMA is reminding consumers that even if a service looks legitimate, it’s unlikely to have important customer protections.
The ACMA claim that “Australians who use illegal gambling services risk losing their money”.
