1 Dec 2017

Turkey illegal gambling_1The Turkish government is adamant to crack down on illegal gambling and has decided to introduce even stricter restrictions on ATM withdrawals and money transfers .

The BDDK (Turkish Banking Supervision Body) confirmed this change as they have clearly taken the government's stand on gambling.

They also announced to the local media, that people who withdraw the maximum allowable amount from their accounts, will be put under special supervision.

These measures are deemed necessary by the BDDK, as at present: “In Turkey, about five million people are involved in illegal gambling, for participation in which money is withdrawn through ATMs”.

A few months earlier, the Turkish government announced a national plan to fight illegal gambling. The Interior and Justice Ministries in coordination with the Revenues Department and the Police Department are responsible to crackdown this phenomenon.

The national regulators also investigate online gaming platforms and venues and have shut down activities without legal authorization both on internet and land based sectors.
