The Romanian gambling authority, Oficiul National pentru Jocuri de Noroc (ONJN), has announced earlier this year that they have blacklisted several websites that have been operating without proper licensing. Now they went a bit further and announced that regular citizens that gamble on such blacklisted websites could be fined, according to Romanian news television Digi 24. The fines will be between 5,000 and 10,000 RON (between 1130 and 2260 Euro).
ONJN also extended the initial blacklist with an additional 100 websites. If you are a Romanian gambler you will have to check the ONJN website first, see if your favourite casino or betting operator is on the blacklist or not, and then make the choice whether to gamble there or not. The website is available both in Romanian and in English. The Romanian gambling authority has announced that anyone who uses the unlicensed websites for gambling after September 10th is liable to be fined.
