    Colombia wants a piece of the pie, so it's blocking 325 gambling sites within its borders:

    Funny how some of these URLs have affiliate tags - and there is a Facebook page as well. Hope they don't mistakenly block Facebook. :p

    Oh haha. :) Nice way of listing the domains for block indeed. Any ideas how exactly they plan to block the casinos? I mean in some countries they just post a list with "blocked" casinos and thats pretty much all.

    They've ordered the Ministry of technology to block these IPs. I've written an article about it, but it's on the new Casinomeister site which won't be launched until next week. LOL

    Colombia blocking 325 Gambling Sites

    Punters in Colombia had a dose of Nannyism dished out to them this week when their Ministry of Information blocked 325 gambling sites. These included renowned names such as 32Red, Betfred, Bet365 – and a slew of bingo sites and somebody’s Facebook page (which is rather stupid since the guy can just open a new one).

    You must register/login in order to see the link., an entity that regulates games of chance, believes that these gambling websites cause Colombians to lose as much as 350,000 million pesos. This is money that should be taxed.

    In 2015, the government actually put together a legal and regulatory framework for companies that offer sports betting, card games, bingo and casinos games to register and comply, and to operate legally.

    “We are the first country in Latin America to regulate these games, and we did it by reviewing not only legislation in Spain, France, UK, the most advanced on the subject, but other technical elements or game trends. This will allow us to obtain more resources for health and ensure that Colombians who use these pages are assured that they will not be ripped off and that they will pay their premiums, “said Juan Pérez, president of Coljuegos .

    In addition to complying with various financial, technical and technological requirements, companies wishing to provide these services must pay about 600 million pesos for operating rights, guarantee the payment of winnings and pay taxes to the Colombian government.

    But since no casino company has made this step, Coljuegos requested that the Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (and the Police) block access from the country to 325 betting sites – to include You must register/login in order to see the link..

    The government hopes that these companies will comply to their licensing requirements, pay the fees, and offer their punters quality service free from pirated software and similar dodginess.

    It’s a shame that they took control out of the players’ hands and implemented draconian devises like banning websites from our Colombian cousins. We hope to see these companies become licensed soon.

    I was struggling with that. The "u" version wasn't in my dictionary, so I figured I had a pretty old dictionary. :p

    I'm sure there are reasons for that. :p

    Well as long as they have regulatory law that is not way too restrictive I kind of agree with Colombian government - when players play at regulated casinos at least they have some protection against the casinos.
