Switzerland's blacklist is growing to 35 more betting sites

Switzerland Flag

Swiss gaming regulator Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission (ESBK) has added another 35 websites to its blacklist of unlicensed operators, igamingbusiness.com reported. What we assume, the ESBK list now contains 145 gaming sites. Back in September 2019, the ESBK and the (Swiss) Inter-Cantonal Lottery and Betting Commission (Comlot) published each a list of betting sites not permitted to operate in the country. The Federal Gaming Board (ESBK) maintains and updates a blacklist within its area of responsibility according to Article 86 of the Geldspielgesetz, which permits the ESBK to request internet service providers to block access to platforms that are accessible in Switzerland but not licensed, using a domain name server lock.

What may seem strange is that top-ranked betting sites such as bet365, Unibet, and videoslots.com belong to their lists. Other well-known gaming companies on the lists: 24bettle.com, bet-at-home.com, betclic.com, expekt.com, igame.com, interwetten.com, tipbet.com. B2U keeps you updated.
