Kazakstan

Moderate
Kazakhstan is a yellow-level online gambling jurisdiction with online casinos being the only type of gaming that is not allowed to be licensed.

Kazakhstan is located in eastern Europe and Western Asia. It borders Russia to the west and north, China to the south-east, Kyrgyzstan to the south, Uzbekistan to the south and Turkmenistan to the south-west. It also borders the Caspian Sea to the south-west.

Overview

Online gambling in Kazakhstan is regulated on a very high level. They offer licenses to businesses that want to operate online gambling sites in the country. With that having been said, they have an odd restriction where online casinos are explicitly illegal for licensing purposes, though players are allowed to play with foreign sites. This is strange and obviously self-defeating. Many efforts to get this changed in their legislative process have failed as a whole, though there is an active movement to try to include online casinos in their regulatory framework, so this strange law could change soon.

Licensing

The process for licensing is actually pretty well-structured in Kazakhstan. They have multiple sports betting and online poker sites that are licensed and regulated in their country. What hurts the value of their licenses is that players are free to play with foreign operators with no restrictions whatsoever. This is particularly interesting with being allowed to play at online casinos while operators aren't allowed to offer online casino games. In the interests of trying to maximize revenue, it's easy to see that this is exceptionally counterproductive.

If licensing is extended to online casino play, the next step will be for them to make it illegal to play with foreign operators so that their licensees can get some serious value for their play. Restricting the market like this is commonplace in the online gambling world.

Player Protections

There isn't very much information available about the level of player protections that are given for sites licensed in Kazakhstan. A major part of this ties back to the online casino ban and allowing players to openly play with foreign operators. Most online gamblers tend to want to have access to online casinos, and those who are gambling in other ways have such a large number of sites to choose from that there isn't very much action given to the licensees. Along these lines, there aren't a lot of reports about people who have actually played with Kazakhstan-licensed sites and needed to file a complaint.
