Swiss gambling regulators the Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission (ESBK) and the Inter-Cantonal Lotteries and Betting Commission (Comlot) have added a number of websites to their blacklist of unlicensed igaming operators.

First published in September of last year, the blacklists are updated on a regular basis, highlighting domains that the ESBK or Comlot say are operating illegally in Switzerland.

The ESBK has added a further 33 domains to its blacklist, while Comlot’s updated blacklist includes an additional 12 sites.

New websites featured on the ESBK blacklist include Amunra.com, Bitcasino.io and Bitcoincasino.io, as well as two sites each from Boaboa, Cadolla and Casinia.

Other sites on the updated list are Casinobuck.com,Casinomia.com, Casoo.com, Cookiecasino.com, Crazyfox.com, Duxcasino.com, Gratowin.com, Greenspin.bet, Kingbillycasino.com and Live.casino.

ESBK also singled out two websites from Machance, as well a Masonslots.com, Megapari.com, Oshi.io, Paradisecasino.com, Redping.win, Shangrilalive.com, Slotwolf.com Stakes.com, Syndicated.casino, Vegasplus.com, Wildtornado.casino and Zencasino.com as operating illegally in Switzerland.

Meanwhile, the new Comlot list names 22bet8.co, Bahigo35.com, Forzza45.com, Interwetten8.com, Meridianbet.com and Meridianbet.com.cy as illegal domains.

Other sites blacklisted by Comlot were Shangrilalive.com – which also appeared on the latest ESBK blacklist – as well as Mybet.de, Svenbet.com, Vulkanbet.com, Webbyslot.com and Wirwetten247.com.

Swiss internet service providers are now required to block access to all of the blacklisted websites.

The blacklists were last updated in May when the ESBK included 365sb.com, the fourth bet365 site to be blocked, after bet365.com, bet365.it and bet365.dk.

Additions to the Comlot list in May included alpenwetten.com, bahigo28.com, exbeteu.com, fortunejack.com and three domains operated by Exclusivebet.
