Friday August 8,2014 : ANOTHER ONLINE GAMBLING BLACKLIST LAUNCHED
Latvia publishes some big names on its "verboten" list.
The online gambling industry has yet another national government blacklist to keep in mind following the publication by Latvia this week of its list of unlicensed operators who could find themselves ISP-blocked in the Baltic state.
The list is the work of the new Latvia Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspectorate and includes top online gambling websites like 888.com, Bet365.com, Betfair.com, Bwin.com, Pokerstars.eu, Unibet.com, Unibet.net Betway.com, Fulltilt, Poker.eu, Pokerstars.com and Williamhill.com, along with others such as Spinpalace.com, Casino.com, Betsson.com, Triobet.com, Betsafe.com, 888games.com, 888play.com, Expekt.com and Casinoeuro.com.
Latvia has signed collaborative compacts with fellow Baltic states Estonia and Lithuania which includes the exchange of information on unlicensed operators in the region.
