And yet another country goes down the route of excessive restrictions on online gambling:
Swiss voters have overwhelmingly backed a new gambling law which will block foreign betting sites.
The new Gambling Act won the support of 72.9% of voters, according to final results, despite accusations that the law amounts to online censorship.
Due to take effect in 2019, the act, which will be one of the strictest in Europe, allows only Swiss-certified casinos and gaming firms to operate.
The government says it is designed to tackle gambling addiction.
Both houses of parliament have already passed the legislation.
While the bill will let Swiss companies offer online gambling for the first time, it will also block all foreign betting sites in the country, something opponents say amounts to "censorship of the internet".
Various youth wings from political parties garnered the 50,000 signatures necessary to stage the referendum in an attempt to overturn the act.
