Italy’s blacklist keeps growing

Greece, Bulgaria, Belgium and other European countries have been in the poker headlines lately as they’ve been tenacious to put on a blacklist a large number of online gaming websites.

Greece so far, has a blacklist of 400 gambling sites and Bulgaria is slowly catching up with 100 sites. However, these figures are nothing if compared to Italy’s blacklist: 4513.

The main reason why the Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies (AAMS) have come after online gambling sites is because these sites have not followed or obeyed the country’s Finance Act, stating that any online gaming company opearting in Italy must hold a license given by the AAMS.
