Latvian gambling regulator the Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspection (IAUI) has added thirteen new domains to its blacklist of unlicensed gambling sites in its first update of the year.
A total of 442 sites have now been blacklisted, requiring Latvian internet service providers to block access to the domains, and the country’s financial institutions to block payments to and from the operators.
The latest update includes another two domains associated with Triobet, a brand acquired by Betsson through its purchase of Nordic Gaming Group in 2012.
Triobet3.com and Triomove.com become the sixth and seventh Triobet sites to be added to the blacklist, joining a number of other Betsson brands.
The NetPlay TV-owned Vernons.com is another high-profile site to be banned in the latest update. Originally owned by Sportech, Vernons was acquired by NetPlay in October 2013.
Malta licensee Cosmik Gaming Group has had two sites blacklisted, CosmikCasino.com and IlCasinoCosmiko.com, as has Omni Casino, whose Onicasino.com and Sunpoker.com domains were added. Omni Casino is licensed by the government of Curaçao and is powered by Playtech.
