ACMA blocks more illegal offshore gambling websites


The ACMA has requested that Australian internet service providers (ISPs) block more illegal offshore gambling websites.

The illegal gambling sites blocked today include:

  • Pokie Island
  • Rich Palms
  • Lucky Tiger Casino
  • Megaslot
  • Bitkingz
  • Parimatchwin
  • Casino Rocket
  • Montecryptos
  • Cabarino
  • Jackpot Jill VIP
  • Robin Roo

The ACMA undertook investigations that found these sites to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.

Website blocking is one of a range of enforcement options to protect Australians against illegal online gambling. Since the ACMA made its first blocking request in November 2019, 555 illegal gambling websites have been blocked.

Over 170 illegal services have also pulled out of the Australian market since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017.

Website blocking provides a valuable opportunity to alert the public to illegal gambling services through the messaging that appears when there is an attempt to access the site.

The ACMA is reminding consumers that even if a service looks legitimate, its unlikely to have important customer protections. This means Australians who use illegal gambling services risk losing their money. You can check if a wagering service is licensed to operate in Australia on our register.

More information about online gambling is available on the ACMA’s website, including information on how to protect yourself from illegal gambling operators and instructions on how to make a complaint about an illegal site.
