Belgian Gaming Commission and BIPT have sogned agreement to better combat illegal online gambling & betting

The Belgian Gaming Commission and the BIPT have concluded an agreement to better combat illegal online gambling and betting. In order to guarantee a safe and controlled gambling environment, the two regulators have agreed to cooperate on the issue of illegal gambling and betting sites that operate online without an operating licence and do not offer protection to Belgian players. Thanks to the new protocol, it will now be possible to count on the intervention of BIPT, which will make its expertise and technical assistance available and raise awareness among operators in the electronic communications sector through various campaigns.

As part of its monitoring duties, the Gaming Commission has made the fight against illegal gaming and gambling sites one of its priorities. When it finds an illegal offer in Belgium, the commission can impose administrative fines, but it can also put the illegal website on a blacklist and ask the Internet providers to block access to it. Last year, the commission put 122 websites on its blacklist. Players logging on to one of these websites will then see a specific stop page indicating that the website in question is illegal. Sometimes, however, the commission finds it difficult to block access to these websites.
