Ukraine is set to take its draft gambling law to its second reading this month, which if passed, would legalise both online and land-based gambling in the country.

Under the draft gambling law, the gambling activities would be carried out through 11 different licenses, which would be issued by a gaming regulator.

For a land-based casino license, there will be a yearly licensing fee of EUR1.9 million if the casino is based in Kyiv. For other cities, the licensing fee will cost EUR 960,000 per year. For cities with populations of above 500,000, it would be allowed 10 gaming tables and 50 slot machines.

Cities with a population below 500,000 would be permitted 5 gaming tables and 20 slot machines. It would be required to have one or more 5-star hotels with no fewer than 150 rooms, whilst the casino premises need to be a minimum of 500 square meters.

For an online casino license, the licensee would be required to pay a yearly fee of EUR 624,000 before the implementation of an online monitoring system and EUR 208,000 afterwards. The license allows for both Ukranian and non-Ukranian players for online casinos.

The sports betting license, which allows for physical betting shops, would cost EUR 2.9 million before the online monitoring system and EUR 960,000 after. Similarly, the licensee is allowed to take both Ukranian and non-Ukranian punters.

Slot machine halls, which allow for up to 250 slot machines, will have a yearly licensing fee of EUR 240,000. An online poker license will cost EUR 160,000 per year.

There are also license fees per slot machine and gaming table – which are EUR 28,000 for a roulette table, EUR 14,400 for any other table game, EUR 2880 for a slot machine (not connected to online monitoring system) and EUR 960 after it is connected.

Complitech, the gaming industry’s only product and technical compliance database, has hit a major landmark with the listing of its 10,000th requirement, after adding Greece to its selection of jurisdictions.

The addition means Complitech users can now download, sort, analyse and compare more than 10,000 technical compliance requirements from 27 regulated online gaming jurisdictions within seconds.

These requirements are translated into English and kept up to date by a team of compliance experts, with new markets added as they open. As well as Greece, full technical compliance requirements from Germany and the Netherlands will soon be available to Complitech users.

The database has quickly become a must-have tool for suppliers looking to expand their global footprint within regulated markets. On average, Complitech users are able to enter new jurisdictions 60 percent faster than competitors.

Francesco Bianchi, Director of Compliance Operations at Maxima Compliance, said: “It has been a little over six months since we launched Complitech, so it is a fantastic achievement to have already hit such a landmark.

“A huge amount of work has been put in by the team to ensure that compliance managers and product owners no longer need to spend weeks researching and translating these requirements themselves.

“Complitech not only streamlines and optimises the process of entering new regulated markets, but its powerful gap analysis tools mean it can be used to identify new strategic opportunities for your business.”

AUSTRAC, Australia’s financial crime watchdog, has launched a formal investigation into potential infringements of the country’s anti-money laundering laws by Crown Resorts.
