Australia.- The ACMA has announced it will ask Australian internet service providers to block another 18 offshore unlicensed gambling websites.

The authority launched a series of investigations after receiving complaints and found that the 18 websites were operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.

ACMA warned customers to withdraw funds from Syndicate Casino, iLucki, King Billy Casino, Gunsbet, Spinago, Fast Pay Casino, Get Slots and King Johnni immediately.

It said: “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.”

ACMA has blocked over 100 gambling websites since the authority started enforcing offshore gambling rules in 2017.
