National Gambling Ban Loophole

A National gambling ban in the Ukraine has seen resourceful operators taking advantage of a legal loophole by opening up as “Internet complexes” or “interactive clubs” and sending their operations offshore, reports The KYIV Post.

“The ban is being circumvented legally,” said Danylo Getmantsev, honorary president at Jurimex law firm and author of a book on gambling in Ukraine. “The server is set up in another jurisdiction [offshore], where gambling is permitted, and here the owner [of the establishment] is simply an agent providing access”.

Experts have warned that if authorities do not clamp down on these clubs, many more are sure to follow.
