Blacklist Enforcement Boom Continues Into 2019

The number of blacklisted online gambling domains across 14 reporting European countries, as monitored by GamblingCompliance, grew by 25 percent in the first half of 2019, ahead of the Swiss regulator’s announcement that it has begun formulating its own blacklist.

The total number of visible blacklisted URLs across Europe reached 64,639 as of June 30, 2019, representing growth of around one-quarter relative to the total at the end of 2018 and the addition of almost 13,000 domains during the first six months of the year.

Blacklists dictate the unlicensed domain names that are required to be blocked by internet service providers (ISPs) and often payment processors in a given jurisdiction, which may or may not have its own local licensing regime for online gambling.
