  • 0


Belarus has given permission to gambling operators for legally registering an online casino, if appropriate license has been obtained. Legislation currently does not prohibit Belarusians from online gambling on overseas websites. Belarusians also have access to newsletters and information about online casinos.

According to Marina Nevinkaya, the head of gambling department at Belarus’ Ministry of Taxes and Duties, when the transition period ends, restrictions will appear in this field.

“Publishing gambling content aimed at promotion and organising unlicensed online gaming will be illegal beginning with 1 April 2021. Two years after the entry into force of the basic provisions of the decree number 305, access to the websites containing such information, will be limited,” the representative of the Ministry said.

The gambling market of Belarus remains stable. According to the recent data, 106 companies hold gambling business, 94 license holders actually operate. There are 391 gambling establishments in Belarus, including 27 casinos, 176 gaming machine halls and 188 betting offices.
