Today it was revealed that the Belgian Gambling Commission added three additional betting sites to the list of blacklisted online casinos due to targeting players within the country without a license.
The sites getting the boot are Whitlioncasino.com, Syndicate.casino, and GG.bet. An investigation determined that they were indeed in violation of the country's gambling laws. The trio join a number of other sites that are already blacklisted, including William Hill, 1xBet, and Betfair. Belgium's laws make playing at illegal sites a criminal offense, with fines ranging from €26 to €25,000, while operators can be fined between €100 and €100,000.
In a statement the BGC wrote: "It is prohibited for anyone to operate games of chance without a licence granted by the Gaming Commission. It is also prohibited for anyone to participate in or advertise an illegal game of chance."
