Belarusian gambling industry is gradually emerging from the shadows. The official media reported that in 2020 a licensed online casino will start operating in the country. According to officials, this year 4 or 5 online casinos will start legal operation online in Belarus. It is expected that one of the first to launch is pokerdom-online.
The minister of taxes and duties at the final board of the Ministry of Taxes and Duties spoke about the progress of the commission, which is studying the conformity of technical equipment and organizational requirements for the launch of the casino. Its owner filed an application for examination in order to obtain a permit for this type of activity. It is worth mentioning that officially Belarusian players got access to online casinos at the beginning of April last year.
According to the officials, starting next year, a mechanism will be launched in the country to identify and block illegal betting sites for Belarusian users. The ministry decided to work out the procedure for purchasing high-quality software for the domestic gambling business at the state level.
