Romania suspends license, expands iGaming blacklist

Romanian national gambling regulator ONJN has suspended the operating licenses of Sea-Bet and Bet Club Sistem.

Malta-based Sea-Bet operates the Romanian gaming site, while Bet Club Sistem is licensed as a payment processor and affiliate.

The Romanian regulator published its decision on September 27th but offered no explanation for the license suspensions.

The decision states that must cease all gambling activity on the website and its retail agencies for 30 days as of September 28th, 2018. It must also cease new account registrations while honouring any bets placed prior to the suspension.

The ONJN notice states that the sanction is applied to the company and should in no way affect consumers, including their ability to withdraw funds.

The suspension follows the first update to Romania's iGaming blacklist since April, with a total of 1,061 domains now blacklisted. Internet service providers have 15 days in which to implement the decision, while blacklisted operators have 30 days to appeal their listing. The latest blacklist was compiled on August 30th.
