Serbia is a green-level online gambling jurisdiction where all forms of gambling are completely regulated.
Serbia is located in south-east Europe. They border Hungary to the north, Romania to the north-east, Bulgaria to the south-east, Macedonia to the south, Kosovo to the south, Montenegro to the south-west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the west, and Croatia to the north-west.
Serbia has a particularly reasonable way of handling online gambling regulation. They've offered licenses to operate since 2011, and they've attracted a lot of operators and software companies for two reasons. The first reason is that they have very reasonable tax rates of about five percent. The second reason is that they have a large enough population of Internet users and players that provide a sizable incentive for operators to want to get in on the action.
With that having been said, they also take measures to prevent players from accessing foreign sites. These measures include blacklists, and it is illegal to play with sites that are not regulated by the Serbian government.
The licensing process in Serbia is relatively strict, and they don't just hand out a rubber stamp like some jurisdictions have been known to do. They require that a company have a good reputation and be subject to certain punishments, including fines and having their license revoked, if they do not adhere to the right guidelines, rules and business practices that are required.
Serbia also offers plenty of incentives for companies to stick by these rules as was mentioned above. The tax rates are competitive, the number of people in the country make it attractive for offering games, and they don't have any ridiculous rules or prerequisites that effectively keep major operators from getting licensed.
Players are given a considerable amount of protection under Serbian online gambling law. The point is that they want to keep confidence in the sites and software companies that they regulate, and allowing any company to get away with taking advantage of players would severely undermine that confidence. Players have simple avenues to escalate complaints and make inquiries, and they are handled by the Serbian government appropriately. This rounds out what's one of the most reasonable regulatory bodies for online gambling in south-eastern Europe.
