IGT/Entraction bans poker players in 50 countries - but not Italy, Nick Jones Pokerfuse | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

The IGT Network, formerly Entraction, has expanded its list of blocked countries adding 20 new banned countries.


Banned countries include: Australia, Spain, Belgium, Cyprus, Turkey, Israel, Norway, Russia, Canada, South Africa, China, Ivory Coast, Monaco, Denmark, France and Estonia.


However, one notable omission from the blacklist is Italy: IGT/Entraction apparently continues to allow Italian players without the network nor any of its operators holding a license.


IGT, who purchased Entraction and rebranded it at the beginning of the year, was one of the first to receive approval in Nevada for an online poker license.
