Online gambling is a very popular activity among Israeli players, but there are only two types of gambling which are legal in the country – the Israeli government only allows punters to play the National Lottery or sports betting. Sadly, for all casino enthusiasts in the country, live casinos are forbidden, and there is no licensed live casino currently operating in the country. The government tries its best to block offshore live casinos that try to attract Israeli punters to their sites, but there is not much success in that field.
Israeli's government states that gambling is a very bad activity for its citizens, so they have an ISP level method to filter or block the sites from abroad, but that system is simply ineffective. Even if they manage to block a certain site, the players in the country can still access it using a VPN, so there is an easy way around the restrictions. So, most of the Israeli punters play their favorite live dealer games at international live casinos without even being detected. There has been no case in the country where a person has been criminally charged or prosecuted for gambling at such sites, so this is very good news for all Israeli players out there. It doesn't seem like the government will change its stance on online gambling anytime soon, so this is the only way forward for the online gambling sector in Israel.
