The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) has urged internet users to be aware of illegal gambling sites that have been using the department’s name without permission.
Responding to a rising number of public enquiries relating to the illegal gambling websites, DICJ clarified that its only official website is http://www.dicj.gov.mo.
“So far, the Macau Government has never issued any online interactive gaming license to any companies. Hence, all online interactive gambling websites in Macau are considered illegal operations,” the DICJ said on its website.
It added that any unauthorized use of the DICJ official without obtaining prior consent is an offense.
“The DICJ will not tolerate such illegal acts and will reserve the rights to pursue the matter through legal channel.”
