New policy for unlicensed bookmakers in Ukraine

15 Oct 2021

The Commission on the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries (KRAIL) in Ukraine announced a new policy regarding unlicensed online operators that exist in the local market.

The Ukrainian gambling regulator will be giving three working days to such operators to cease their operations by sending an email directly to the website owner. If a bookmaker doesn't comply, then KRAIL will blacklist its domain.

A KRAIL spokesperson stated regarding this new policy that: “The conduction of online gambling should be carried out on the basis of the proper licence being issued in accordance with the requirements of the law. Operators should adhere to the agreed upon licencing conditions in the field of online gambling, using the appropriate online organisation systems, and exclusively through websites which have been specifically registered, and with a mandatory connection to the state’s online monitoring system.”

The domestic gambling authority was created just in 2020 but has already blocked more than 1,000 websites. In July, KRAIL launched the new Ukrainian self-exclusion system from gambling, which allows players to exclude themselves from six months up to three years from every locally licensed online bookie. Ukraine’s new responsible gambling regulations were announced back in September, since they were approved by the local Ministry of Justice.
