Romania has just become the latest country to implement a regulatory body for online casinos and has issued the first few licenses, and a long list of blacklisted urls. The Romanian National Office for Gambling (ONJN) has announced that NetBet is one of the first few online casinos to be approved for and receive their Romanian license, meaning they can accept players based their with the full backing of the countries regulatory body. As with all Gambling Commissions, Netbet will have been put through strict tests and checks to ensure they were worthy of the ONJN license so Romanian players can play, safe in the knowledge that this is a reliable casino.
This comes at a time when many casinos, such as WilliamHill are withdrawing from the market, as only the brave few, like NetBet are being accepted into the fold. Not only are casinos held up to scrutiny, they’re also subject to hefty fees to obtain the license, making the market unrealistic for many.
A list of almost 50 casinos has been released on the regulated site as being “unauthorised gaming URLS”. Casinos can be removed from the list if they agree to pay back taxes on their earnings since December 2010, which sounds a little unrealistic but some casinos see this as a market worth targeting and the word is that Betfair may soon be joining NetBet as a licensed casino once the fees have been settled.
