Switzerland expands blacklist of unlicensed gambling sites

Swiss authorities have blocked access to a host of online gambling websites that target customers in Switzerland without a local license.

The move follows the implementation of new regulations this year which limit online gambling licenses to Swiss land-based casino operators and prohibit unlicensed online gaming.

The latest blacklists compiled by the Swiss Lottery and Betting Board and Federal Gaming Commission add 100 new domains for site blocking – 28 sports betting and lottery domains and 72 online casino domains.

This marks the first update to the blacklists since their introduction in September, with a total of 88 sports and lottery and 110 iGaming domains now blocked for illegally targeting Swiss consumers

There are currently six casinos licensed to operate online in Switzerland - Grand Casino Baden, Casino Davos, Grand Casino Lucerne and Casino Pfäffikon – as well as recently approved Grand Casino Kursaal Bern and Interlaken Casino.
