Another Online Gambling Blacklist Launched

Latvia publishes some big names on its "verboten" list

The online gambling industry has yet another national government blacklist to keep in mind following the publication by Latvia this week of its list of unlicensed operators who could find themselves ISP-blocked in the Baltic state.

The list is the work of the new Latvia Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspectorate and includes top online gambling websites like 888.com, Bet365.com, Betfair.com, Bwin.com, Pokerstars.eu, Unibet.com, Unibet.net Betway.com, Fulltilt, Poker.eu, Pokerstars.com and Williamhill.com, along with others such as Spinpalace.com, Casino.com, Betsson.com, Triobet.com, Betsafe.com, 888games.com, 888play.com, Expekt.com and Casinoeuro.com.

Latvia has signed collaborative compacts with fellow Baltic states Estonia and Lithuania which includes the exchange of information on unlicensed operators in the region.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
