    Default More than 3000 domains casino operators blocked in Italy

    More than 3000 domains casino operators blocked in Italy.

    Check the list below of all current domains casino operators blocked in Italy.

    Last update 16 June 2011:

    Link: aams.it/site.php?id=2484
    Direct link: aams.it/sites/aams2008/files/documenti_old/private/downloads/documentazione/scommesse/Elenco_siti_inibiti/elenco_siti_inibiti.rtf

    If you have italian traffic on your gambling sites, and if you promote some casinos of this list, the traffic that you send, goes to trash, because nobody in Italy can open these casinos listed on this blacklist.

    Some operators are combatting this on their end (by using redirects), so not all the traffic you're sending to those casinos is going to waste.

    Wow, this is crazy. Even 888 sportingbet and all the other largest companies are blacklisted. Are you sure they are unaccessible?

    They need to have new domains with all content on the new domains to work well. If they use new domains with redirects for principal site not work because the previous domains were blocked and the italian visitors cannot enter anyway.

    Not if the end URL that the redirect was pointing to is the one that is blocked - the redirect just needs to be redirected somewhere else.

    Fortunately the AAMS is not very smart in the way they are blocking URLs

    If you have italian visitors on your gambling sites, I recommend you use only others casinos that not are listing on this blacklist, this way you have sure that your italian visitors can visit the casinos. Or you can upload the software of each casino to your own host for download, but you may have your site also blocked there if you do this.

    The only solution to avoid the block in the long run is to get an AAMS license.

    Websites are blocked to people who use italian DNS. In fact one of the solutions that players use to avoid the block, is to point to foreign DNS addresses.

    I live in Italy and I can confirm that: also some affiliates sites are blocked AAMS. This is a stupid ban techique that goes against every principle (and law) of the European Union.
    The European Union allows free trade and free traffic on the Internet, but Italian Monopoly do not care about laws of EU.
    Every year the European Union makes heavy fines to AAMS but this is not a problem: the income is much higher than fines. Last Superenalotto (AAMS game) progressive jackpot: 120,000,000. Anything else to add?

    CRAP!

    Does this AAMS license only apply to online gaming in Italy?
