The Swiss Intercantonal Lottery and Betting Commission has published their first list of blacklisted online gambling sites, with 65 domains on the first issuance of the list.
The operators on the list will be required to be blocked by internet service providers in Switzerland, while sites that carry a gaming license will be able to offer their services to players. The list notably includes Pinnacle and Bet365 as well as some smaller companies. Many other big betting brands already pulled out of the Swiss market ahead of the integration of rules, with access to gamblers in the country already cut off.
Companies on the blacklist will be eligible to come off should they adhere to Swiss gambling laws for five years, including not advertising to punters in the country. Of course, they'll have to apply (and pay) for a gambling license in the country.
