ACMA blocking more illegal gambling and affiliate websites

24 March 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The ACMA has requested that Australian internet service providers block more illegal offshore gambling and affiliate marketing websites.

The sites include:

- Pokies Parlour
- Ninja Spins
- Pokies Online Casino
- CasinoAus
- Australian Casino Sites
- AU Online Casino

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, 426 illegal gambling websites have been blocked.

Over 160 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.
