Only two operators are licensed by the country: National Lottery and Winner-Toto

Israeli government blocks overseas egaming websites

(Israel).- Israeli police have ordered internet service providers in the country to block access to overseas egaming websites. Sites on the banned list of website and IP addresses are understood to include Victor Chandler’s VCBet-branded casino and sportsbook.

T

he move follows the arrest of 28 people three weeks ago in connection with distributing prepaid cards in the country for play on sites belonging to Victor Chandler and Stan James.

Only two operators are licensed by the Israeli government to offer egaming to Israeli players, National Lottery and Winner-Toto. Credit card companies were forced in 2007 to remove their payment option from non-licensed sites in 2007.

According to the Haaretz newspaper, a number of ISPs have asked for a one-week extension to study the legal and technological implications. The ISPs are arguing the block could easily be circumvented by the websites and that the police do not have the legal authority to impose the filter.
