The ACMA Block Offshore Casinos

Internet service providers in Australia have been instructed to block access to five offshore online gambling sites because they are operating illegally.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) have advised that Spin Bet, Fight Club, Kim Vegas, Queenspins, and Yoju Casino are all trading in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001 and, as a result, should be blocked with immediate effect.

The ACMA said that they had received complaints from the general public about each one of the casinos and found them all to be trading illegally.

We are reminding people that even if a gambling service looks legitimate, it's unlikely to have important customer protections; this means Australians who use illegal gambling sites risk losing their money. Website blocking is also a valuable opportunity to alert people to illegal gambling services. When users attempt to access a blocked site, they are unable to do so and are directed to the ACMA website for information about illegal and legal services.

ACMA Spokesperson

The ACMA started blocking illegal offshore gambling sites in 2017 and, in that time, have successfully blocked a total of 324, who were all found to be offering online gambling-related services illegally.

In September 2021, the ACMA successfully advised the blocking of Jackpot Jill, Koala Royal, National Casino, Juicy Stakes, and Grand Rush.
