Online gambling can become a new source of budget replenishment

Nowadays Ukrainian officials pay special attention to virtual platforms that offer gambling entertainment. In the nearest future, there will probably be a regulatory and legal framework that will be capable to adequately regulate and control operators of this industry.

Back in the middle of June 2016, during the TV program ‘Game of Interests’ Ukrainian people's deputy Pavel Kishkar told that round $1 billion is paid to online gambling operators every day. And in the majority of cases the recipients are Russian financial structures, meaning that the budget of this country is replenished due to Ukrainian players.

Gambling expert Zoryana Toporetskaya believes that with a proper legal framework Ukrainian budget could be replenished with substantial tax liabilities. Everyone would win from this, starting from operators and players, and ending with officials and Ukrainian regulatory bodies.

‘With the help of regulated gambling market we could renew the culture of financing sports,’ says the Deputy Head of the VerkhovnaRada of Ukraine Committee, people's deputy Denis Silantjev. According to the official, unregulated gambling sector detrimentally affects not only the Ukrainian budget, but also players.

According to the latest data, the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine has renewed the efforts to coordinate the issue of permits to lottery operators. Slotegrator believes that it can be the first step towards obtaining long-awaited permits for lotto activities in Ukraine.

Experts believe that the adoption of legislative acts, that will be capable to regulate the lotto market and gambling activities, would bring significant investments in all sectors of Ukrainian state.
