French regulator l'Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has published a blacklist of online casinos that are not licensed in France. ANJ has been authorised to block the websites of illegal online casinos since last March.
Which illegal casinos are on the blacklist in France?
The blacklist is updated monthly and includes sites from brands such as Campeonbet, Casinoextra, Dublinbet, Kahuna Casino, Winmachance, MyStake, WinUnique, VegasPlus and YBet.
In March last year, the ANJ was given new powers to block and de-list illegal gambling sites and advertisements for those sites.
Since issuing the first administrative blocking and removal order in June last year, ANJ has issued a total of 152 orders, blocking some 532 URLs with illegal gambling content.
The regulator ANJ has been authorised to shut down all unlicensed online casinos in France from March 2022. The specific power to block illegal casino sites stems from French laws aimed at democratising sport. The unlicensed casinos are on a blacklist issued by French regulators, iGB reported.
