Ukraine is a red-level online gambling jurisdiction where offering games is illegal, but playing games isn't necessarily against the law.

Ukraine is a large, eastern European country. It borders Russia to the east, the Black Sea to the south, Moldova to the south-west, Romania to the south-west, Hungary to the west, Slovakia to the west, Poland to the west and Belarus to the north.


Conflicting and unclear laws are the order of the day in Ukraine when it comes to online gambling. There are essentially two sets of laws: one for operators and one for players. The laws for operators are clear, and they make it illegal for them to offer games to anyone in Ukraine. With that having been said, the laws on whether or not it's illegal for the players to get in on the action with the games are unclear.

What is clear is that players have no trouble playing with foreign operators. There is no blacklist like what many countries have resorted to, and there is no blocking of payments by banks. This means that players are basically open to play wherever they want without obstruction.


Ukraine has no licensing process for online gambling. It's unlikely that they will start one for a lot of reasons, one being that there is a lot of instability in the area at the time of this writing, and they have much bigger priorities to deal with. While this does mean that players most likely won't have regulated sites to play at, it also means that they're unlikely to crack down on Internet gambling in any serious way since they are pre-occupied with more important issues.

Player Protections

Ukraine has no player protections because their government is not involved with online gambling in any way. With the legal gray area of players getting in on the games, it's unlikely they would help you very much if you asked for it in most cases. However, they do not actively go after people who gamble online in any way, shape or form, so there's a balance here. The best option for Ukrainian players who have decided they want to play is to go with a site that has a long history of paying out reliably and who have a wide variety of payment options to deal with in case one is blocked in the future by the government.
