Draft Law On Legalization Of Gambling Business Has Been Adopted In the First Reading
Today, January 16, 2020, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has adopted the draft law on the legalization of the gambling business in the first reading.
The modified draft law 2285-d received votes of 260 deputies. This version differs from the previous one by two missing sub-paragraphs and the increase in player age from 18 to 21 years old. The draft law has to pass the second reading, but the foundation has been already laid.
Organized by Smile-Expo, Ukrainian Gaming Week aims to support this initiative. Undoubtedly, legalization will significantly refill the budget, support the development of medium and large businesses, attract foreign investments, and generate new workplaces.
Our team has been attentively monitoring how the government handled the main and alternative draft laws in order to highlight a relevant program of the event. Currently, we are ready to focus on the adopted draft law and its basis – taking into account all permits and restrictions – and to host the country’s biggest industry event.
All legal players of the gambling market are invited to the exhibition. They will include casino and betting operators, producers of gambling hardware and software, developers of game and casino management software, as well as many others.
We are inviting everyone interested in the development of the Ukrainian gambling market to attend the event on March 11-12. At the start of the industry’s revival, creation of a favorable climate for its growth and formation of a positive image is essential.
