Belgium Adds to Blacklist

The list of unlicensed sites has grown to fifty, after the Belgian Gaming Commission added five new domains to its blacklist this week, Gaming Intelligence reported.

The updated list includes bwin.party’s Gamebookers, and Microgaming-powered SpinPalace and GamingClub.

Gamebookers has filed legal complaints over its blacklisting in Belgium, while it awaits approval for land-based and online licenses in the country.

Belgium also faced legal pressure from Betfair and Telebet last year for requiring online applicants to hold a land-based license and to have servers in the country.

Under Belgian law, sites operating without a license face potential fines of €100,000; players are subject to fines of up to €25,000 for gambling on unlicensed domains.
