The Belgian Gaming Commission (BGC) have brought in the Belgian Police Force to acquire details of every e-gaming site in Europe that is on their blacklist, according to eGaming Review. The blacklist is now with Belgium’s Public Persecution Office
Peter Naessens, head of the BGC’s regulatory unit has stated that a full IP ban will happen in the near future to all blacklisted operators. Naessens goes on to explain why an operator is blacklisted:
“[ They are] aimed at the Belgian market, did not introduce a demand for a licence and we could consider that they attract Belgian players in a significant way.”
“If they [are awarded] a Belgian licence, if they close down their .be website or if they exclude Belgian players from their .com website, then these operators will be removed from the blacklist at the next meeting of the BGC.”
Communication between the BGC and any operator that wish to leave the blacklist will follow in the future.
