Romania’s National Gambling Office (ONJN) has added 41 new domains to the country’s blacklist of illegal gambling websites, with internet service providers now required to block access to the sites.

More than 1,000 internet service providers in Romania are ordered to block access to the sites from 14 May, 15 days after the decision was announced. However, it may be appealed within 30 days.

No high profile brands are among the latest additions, which include a number of dot.co.uk, dot.com and dot.eu domains. 

Among those blacklisted are Anytime Casino, Fruity King, Vegas Mobile Casino and Cool Play Casino. 

The ONJN has maintained its blacklist since 2015, with the launch coming ahead of the country opening its regulated online gambling market in 2016.
