Two Romanian entrepreneurs are going to re-open the Lebada Luxury Resort & Spa in the Danube Delta. They have invested EUR 20 million in the complex for renovation and purchased in 2017 for EUR 3 million from the tax agency ANAF. ANAF sold the complex to recover damages owed to the state by convicted businessman Sorin Ovidiu Vantu.

The re-opening comes at a time when the lawmakers discuss a law that extends special fiscal regime to gambling operations located on islands “including in the bioreserve Danube Delta.”

“We have a casino building, but we are waiting for the regulations in place,” said Laurentiu Niculae, general manager Lebada Luxury Resort & SPA.

Lebada Luxury Resort & Spa is located in the heart of the Danube Delta, on the Sulina branch. The complex has a land of almost four hectares. The complex has over 200 accommodation rooms, of which 140 are for the guests and the rest of the employees.

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.
