ACMA Cracks Down on Illegal Gambling Websites

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has stepped up its attempts to shut down websites that provide illicit offshore gaming. According to recent investigations, these services were in violation of the Interactive Gambling Act of 2001.

New Sites Blocked

Internet service providers (ISPs) in Australia have been asked by ACMA to prohibit a number of further unlawful gambling websites. John Vegas Casino, Jackpoty, and A Big Candy are the most recent websites to be prohibited. One of the tools the ACMA utilizes for enforcement to shield Australians against illicit internet gaming is website blocking.

Ninety-five illicit gambling and associated websites have been blacklisted since November 2019, when ACMA submitted its initial banning request. Additionally, since the ACMA started implementing new regulations on offshore gambling in 2017, more than 220 illicit providers have left the Australian market.

The ACMA is working to protect Australians from the dangers of unlicensed internet gaming. Through the continuous identification and banning of unapproved websites, ACMA guarantees adherence to Australian legislation and offers a safer virtual space.
