Punters warned to withdraw their funds from illegal sites now while they can.

Australia’s communications watchdog will block illegal gambling websites hosted offshore under new powers now in effect.

Punters have been warned by The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to withdraw their funds now from any illegal overseas gambling sites before they go offline.

Internet gambling dens such as Emu Casino and FairGo Casino which are run from Curacao in the Caribbean and target vulnerable Australians will be among the first to be blocked, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Australians spend up to $400million on the dodgy sites each year.

ACMA said on Monday it will ask internet service providers to block websites in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001 using new internet censorship powers now in effect.

ACMA chair Nerida O’Loughlin said the ability to have service providers block websites was a valuable weapon in the fight against illegal online gambling.

‘In many cases these sites refuse to pay significant winnings, or only a small portion,’ she said in an emailed statement on Monday.

‘Customers had also experienced illegal operators continuing to withdraw funds from their bank account without authorisation. There is little to no recourse for consumers engaging with these unscrupulous operators.’

‘If you have funds deposited with an illegal gambling site, you should withdraw those funds now.’

Ms O’Loughlin said public education was crucial in deterring vulnerable people from using illegal offshore gambling websites as they explicitly target Australians.
