Two sites each from Diamond Club VIP Casino, Lucky31, MrXBet, Vavada and Dublinbet were also added to the ESBK list, along with six from 22Bet.

Among the newly listed websites on Comlot’s list are alpenwetten.com, bahigo28.com, exbeteu.com, fortunejack.com and three sites operated by Exclusivebet.  Also added to the list were gwbet.com, helwettia.com, heritagesports.com, solobet14.com, wettpionier.com and two sites from Eurolotto.
