The French gambling regulator has delivered blocking orders against the websites that it found were offering illegal games and payment methods.
France.- The French gambling regulator Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has issued blocking orders against two gambling domains, which it said had been aggressively targeting the public with illegal games.
The Paris Court of Justice has approved a request to order French internet service providers (ISPs) to block access to Stake.com and cbet.gg.
In the statement, the regulator said: “The ANJ wishes to draw the public’s attention to the dangerousness of these illegal sites which record particularly high audiences. This is the reason why we have decided, for the first time, to give an echo to these judgments.”
The regulator singled out cbet.gg which attempted to circumvent an initial IP ban approved in May by using mirror websites to promote its gambling products with different URLs.
ANJ also accused Stake.com of promoting the use of unauthorised payment methods such as cryptocurrencies, offering players the ability to deposit and play with Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Etherium.
