What is “illegal gambling”? It should be understood as gambling without an appropriate licence. Gambling and land-based casinos are not prohibited in Russia. However, the state regulates their organisation and operation at the legislative level.
Without going into complicated legal terminology, let us outline in plain language what in Russia is defined as illegal gambling.
Special zones have been defined in the Russian Federation for organising gambling and opening land-based casinos.
Initially, there were four of them:
A fifth zone in Sochi, Krasnaya Polyana, has recently been added. The government is also considering adding a zone in Crimea to the list.
Any gambling and casinos organised outside these zones constitute illegal gambling. In order to operate in these zones, you have to be licensed and comply with the legislation.
Unfortunately, online gambling does not fall under the enabling legislation. Therefore, online casinos in Russia are illegal gambling businesses.
Admittedly, the prohibition and classification as “illegal gambling” has not made gambling less popular among Russians. Statistics in Russia clearly show an increase in the number of users visiting online sites.
