Which is exactly why the DNS is the wrong level to do this at if
you have a legal obligation to block access. The only way to do
that is to block the packets themselves. Given these are gambling
sites the chance of collateral damage is minimal if you just block
all access to the ips in question. Just make sure you can get
through to their nameservers so you can keep the list of IP addresses
to filter current.
