Russia applies VPN restrictions blocking iGaming websites

Published on Fri Nov 03 2017

An amendment to Russia’s federal law “On Information, Information Technologies and Information Protection” is preventing players from accessing international iGaming websites operating that are not licensed by the Russian government, with the implementation of a new VPN.

Virtual private networks (VPN) services were called to set stricter conditions of access to international sites and online gaming platforms by the Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor).

Furthermore, while about 1,500 gambling-related international licensed domains are being blocked by Roskomnadzor every week, VPN services might be completely banned in Russia if policies against online domains keep getting approved.
