Ukraine Blocks 594 Illegal Gambling Sites

Ukraine’s gambling regulator, the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries (KRAIL), has announced the blocking of 594 illegal gambling sites in its fight against illegal gambling in Ukraine.

The blocking order means that to date, KRAIL has detected over 1,000 gambling sites and 100 land-based establishments that offered gambling services without holding the relevant licenses.

These activities violate article 203-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

Today (26 July) three court rulings determined that 594 illegal gambling sites were to be blocked from use in Ukraine. In the investigation of these sites, searches were carried out and gambling machines and computer equipment were seized.
