Highly informative panel discussion about the Ukrainian gambling industry has been added to the agenda at European Gaming Congress VE (Virtual Edition).

Little over 2 months ago, the Ukrainian gambling industry had a landmark moment for both the international betting industry and for liberalizing the economy.

We’re currently seeing history in the making. In short, the Ukrainian gambling industry is coming back. While gambling peaked at almost $1.4 billion in revenue in 2008, the state monopolized the market into lotteries in 2009, making it the only legal form of gambling – and prohibiting anything else” were the words of Vladimir Malakchi, CBDO at Evoplay Entertainment, in a recent interview (read in full here)

Ukraine’s new gambling legislation would allow the functioning of ground casinos in five-star hotels in the capital city of Kyiv and four-star hotels in regions. The license fee for Kyiv would be $ 2 million for hotels with a capacity of more than 150 rooms and $ 1 million for hotels with a capacity of over 100 rooms but less than 150 rooms.

All-star hotels above three stars can host slot machine facility. The license fee for slot machines would be $ 250000 and $ 100 per month for each slot machine. The facilities can use 50-250 machines with a single license.

Online casinos too will be permitted. The license fee would be $ 230000 or $ 1.150 million for 5 years for one website.

Both online and offline bookmaking activities also will get the nod. The license will cost $ 1 million a year plus $ 500 per month.

As with every newly regulated market, there is information that needs to be digested and this is why we have decided to include a special dedicated panel about the Ukrainian gambling industry at the upcoming European Gaming Congress.

The virtual edition of European Gaming Congress 2020 is taking place between 6-7 October and gathers top names of the gaming industry who will present their insights to create Europe’s largest gaming compliance gathering.
