A lack of strict regulation previously in Bulgaria has seen the introduction of a blacklist within the new law. All betting sites must now be registered and those found operating without a licence will be fined and their sites blocked, according to Focus News Agency.

The state commission of gambling will reportedly maintain the blacklist and release it on its website. Access will be monitored and filtered by internet providers rather than the Chief Directorate for Fight with Organised Crime, as previously planned.
