Only regulated gaming houses will be allowed online. The state is losing too much money in tax revenue.
A few hours ago the recently approved measure forcing Italian internet service providers to block unlicensed online gaming websites entered into force. The censoring method recommended by the [Italian] Amministrazione Autonoma Monopoli di Stato – the State Monopoly Agency – is based upon the redirection of queries to unauthorized websites to a dedicated website by using the ISP DNS systems.
So a country is censoring all traffic to a particular segment of the Internet. Nuts.
