French national regulator l’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has published a blacklist of gambling websites that have been subject to blocking and delisting orders.

The blacklist, which will be updated monthly, features websites operated by brands such as Campeonbet, Casinoextra, Dublinbet, Kahuna Casino, Winmachance, MyStake, WinUnique, VegasPlus and YBet.

Last March, ANJ was handed new powers to block and delist illegal gambling websites, as well as those advertising these sites.

Since the first administrative blocking and delisting orders were sent out in June last year, ANJ has issued a total of 152 orders, following which some 532 URLs relating to illegal gambling content have been blocked.
