Roskomnadzor will shut down more than 100 online casinos

Roskomnadzor (The Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications) will shut down 109 online casinos on the basis of a court decision. Public prosecution office of Kirovskiy district of the city of Ufa has referred the records of illegal online business to court. It is reported by the press service of the Ufimian municipal administration.

This month Rostelecom has limited access to the betting website WinLine, and in autumn Roskomnadzor has blocked the domain of a betting office “Marafon”.

According to the law online casinos and betting houses are prohibited in Russia and Roskomnadzor regularly reports about blocking such resources. But owners of illegal sites open up the same websites under other names immediately after the latter are shut down.
