Today it was revealed that Switzerland's gaming regulator Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission has blocked 35 additional websites belonging to unlicensed online betting operators.
The move comes after the regulator blocked a large number of sites last year, and this new slate of additions brings the total of blocked sites up to 145. This round of blockages includes the likes of BitStarz, Scratch Mania, Golden Euro, and Winorama.
Switzerland has worked to regulate online betting within its borders, but it has also worked to clamp down on sites that don't carry a Swiss gaming license. The regulator has blacklisted the sites, which ISPs within the country are compelled to block access to, and it's possible that those banned groups won't be eligible to obtain a license in the future.
