William Hill, Unibet and Betway have all been blacklisted in Lithuania following a request by the Lithuania Gaming Control Authority to the countries ISP providers to block the companies offering online gambling to residents.
Under orders from the National Parliament after a list of blacklisted companies was drawn up who are deemed to have broken national online gambling laws.
The three online operators are the first of the International companies to have been blacklisted with more to follow it is understood. The move follows new laws that were passed at the beginning of the year to tighten regulations on overseas companies offering online gambling within the country.
At present only online sites TonyBet and Orakulas are allowed to offer online gambling within Lithuania as they have been fully licensed within the country.
However those currently blacklisted and those companies that are on the list to be blacklisted are still welcome to apply for an online gambling license to offer online games said the Gaming Control Authority.
