Kazakhstan To Overhaul Gambling Legislation

New bill bans remote gambling

The Republic of Kazakhstan's Senate committee is reportedly in the process of debating a draft law on amendments to a range of legislative acts that include gambling.
Amendments to existing gambling law were introduced by Kazakhstan's Minister of Culture and Sports, Arystanbek Mukhamediuly, at an extended session of the Committee for economic policy, innovative development and entrepreneurship, this week.
According to multiple media sources, the draft bill prohibits remote gambling under the Civil Procedure Code. It also outlaws any gambling internet resources offered by local and foreign operators.
Other amendments concern terrestrial gambling establishments and include new restrictions for betting offices along with restrictions on the number of gambling tables and gaming machines at casinos.
The procedure for attaining a gambling licence would also be reviewed and tightened as well as a reevaluation of existing tax rates.
