Online casinos in Armenia

Legal status of digital casinos in Armenia: legal since 2004, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Armenia since the introduction of the Law of the Republic of Armenia on Games of Chance and Casinos in 2003 (effective since 2004)1 (although license were not issued for a long time).

The biggest Armenian online casino is operated by TotoGaming, which is headquartered in Yerevan, the capital. Some of the casino companies active in the country (e.g.: Storm International – Sangri La brand) also operate online platforms, although they are not Armenia specific (in fact most of them are not even available in Armenian).

The Armenian sports betting company VBet also has casino games on its platform (although Vbet has a Curacao licence, not an Armenian one, they were just founded by Armenians, they are registered and licensed in an offshore tax haven, depending on your perspective they might not be considered an Armenian online casino).

Additionally, there are a few international casino gambling platforms, which accept players from Armenia (you can see a list of them below), and while none are available in Armenian at the moment, the majority of the Armenian population speaks Russian as well, and some of them are available in Russian.

Playing in unlicensed online casinos is illegal. Only licensed online casinos can accept players legally from Armenia.

It is not known if unlicensed digital casino websites are blocked or not, if you are from Armenia please let us know in the comments section if offshore unlicensed internet casino platforms are blocked or not in your country. Thank you.

The regulations concerning online casinos in Armenia are currently undergoing changes. It is expected that the taxation of online casino will be changed from the current fixed fee per year to a revenue based one.

Despite the multiple Armenian internet casino websites only about 60% of the population has access to the internet from their homes2.

/Comment: This is a really good value considering the average values in Western Asia and the Middle East, but it sill leaves a lot to be desired. /

This puts a limit on the number of potential Armenian players. And that is why only a handful of international online casinos were willing to acquire online gambling licenses in the country (you can see a list of them below).

By scrolling below you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Armenian players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Armenia?

Yes, tourists, expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Armenia:

The Armenian Ministry of Finance is responsible for issuing online gambling licences. You have to contact them if you want to set up an online casino in the Republic of Armenia.

The online gambling licence is called the licence for the “Organization of Internet Gambling Games”.

Licensing fees and requirements can be found in the the Law of The Republic of Armenia on Licensing3.

Land-based casinos in Armenia

Legal status of casinos in Armenia: legal since 2004, operators require a licence, slot halls are legal too

 

Casinos are legal in Armenia since the introduction of the Law of the Republic of Armenia on Games of Chance and Casinos in 2003 (effective since 2004)1.

The law on Games of Chance has been amended multiple times since 2003, most importantly in 2018, which made requirements and regulations pertaining to the placement of casinos and other brick & mortar gaming venues much more strict.

In accordance with this new amendment, casinos are now banned in the capital, Yerevan. This resulted in the closure of most Armenian casinos, including Royal Play Hall Goodwin.

These closures were not related to the COVID-19 pandemic, they were strictly the result of the stricter regulations.

At the moment, the casino closest to Yerevan is Casino Shangri La (the biggest casino in Armenia), at only two kilometres from the city border (it’s called Shangri La Yerevan, but it’s not located in Yerevan actually).

Slot halls are also legal. Slot halls must be at least 100 m2, but not larger than 250 m2, and they can only operate gaming machines (no table games, no card games).

Casinos must be at least 250 m2.

There are conflicting reports about slot halls in Yerevan online. If you are from Armenia and you know whether there are still slot halls in Armenia please leave a comment, many websites claim there are still many of them in operation in the capital, and the casino restrictions do not apply to them. While others say slots are restricted to the casinos now and there no slot halls in the country anywhere since 2018. Please help us clarify this, if you can, thank you.

There are currently only 3 casinos in Armenia, you can find them below in the casino list. The largest Armenian casino is the Shangri La Yerevan (owned by Storm International Ltd.).

Armenia is actually a surprisingly popular tourists destination considering its size and relative poverty.

The country gets around 2 million visitors per year (and this number is growing by about 10-15% per year, UPDATE COVID-19: these are pre-coronavirus numbers)9. The fast and significant increase in the number of tourists visiting Armenia is greatly benefiting the casino sector.

Although, not as much to counterbalance the stricter restrictions, and as a result the number of casinos has decreased from about 8 prior to 2018 to about 3 at the time of writing.

You can find all the currently operating brick and mortar casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Armenia?

Yes, even though there was an issue with gambling addiction and problem gambling in Armenia2, locals are still allowed in the casinos and slot halls (and tourists as well, of course).

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Armenia: The Armenian Ministry of Finance is responsible for issuing licences to gambling establishments, including casino and slot halls. You have to contact them if you want to open a casino in the Republic of Armenia.

The licence required is called a licence for the Organization of Gambling Games and Casinos.

Licensing fees and requirements can be found in the the Law of The Republic of Armenia on Licensing3.

Additionally, gambling companies can only set up casinos in the country if they invest at least $100 million.

Prior to the 2018 casino ban, gambling establishments in the capital Yerevan had to be 150 meters away from educational, historical, cultural centers, administrative buildings and hospitals. However, since 2018, casinos are not allowed in Yerevan at all.

UPDATED: New casinos can only be set up in4:

  • Tsakhkadzor,
  • Sevan,
  • Jermuk,
  • Meghri.

List of all casinos in Armenia

This is a list of all casinos in Armenia, with address, opening hours, number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, reviews and a video of each gambling establishment, if one is available.

 

1., Shangri La Casino
This is a picture of Shangri La Casino in Tsaghkadzor. This is the first casino on this list of all Armenian casinos. This is the biggest casino (in terms of number of games) in Armenia right now. You can read more about this gaming venue to the right of the picture: its' address, opening hours, dress code, entrance fee, and you can watch a video of the venue as well.

Shangri La Casino

Shangri La Casino, address: 8 Olimpiakan St, Tsaghkadzor 2310

Also called Shangri La Yerevan (by their official website), even though the casino is not located in Yerevan, it is located in the resort town of Tsaghkadzor.

It is the the biggest Armenian casino currently by far, ever since the 2018 amendment to the Law of the Republic of Armenia on Games of Chance and Casinos, which banned casinos in the capital.

It is also the flagship and biggest casino of Storm International Ltd., the company which operates all of the Shangri La casino worldwide (the other Shangri La casinos can be found in: Ukraine, Georgia and in Germany).

The casino has a very gorgeous interior and an impressive exterior, by far the most impressive of the Armenian casinos, you can take a look at it in the video below.

This is the closest gambling venue to the capital of Armenia, just 2 km from city border, it is in operation since 2009, it is part of the Multi Grand Pharaon Leisure and Entertainment Complex, which includes a 5-star hotel, a spa center and three concert, banquet halls.

 

Games: around 340 gaming machines (slots, video poker, Novomatic, EGT, Scientific games and IGT), and around 40 tables (blackjack, American Roulette, Caribbean Poker, Texas Holdem Poker)

They have a poker section as well, but sadly there is no online tournament schedule and there is no information about the cash games on their website (if you know anything please drop a comment).

They also have a VIP section (the X.O. VIP room).

 

Video of Shangri La Casino Tsaghkadzor:

 

Opening hours: 24/7

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: smart casual according to reviews, but there is no info about it on their official website, but this is an upscale establishment, I recommend at least smart causal

Entrance fee: 46000 AMD (Armenian Dram), around € 80, $ 100 (slots area is free, first visit is also free)

Meta review analysis: The casino gets good reviews 4/5, no major problems, some people complain about the overly strict dress code, the entrance fee, but this is expected, this Armenia’s best and biggest casino after all, not a slot hall.

 

21+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

2., Casino Senator
This is a picture of Casino Senator Golden Palace in Tsaghkadzor. You can read more about this gaming venue to the right of the picture: its' address, opening hours, dress code, entrance fee, and you can watch a video of the venue as well.

Casino Senator

Casino Senator, address: 2 Building Saralanj St, Tsaghkadzor 2310

Also called Casino Senator Golden Palace, the casino is also located in the resort town of Tsaghkadzor.

It’s a smaller casino with old, low quality machines and some boring and amateurish looking shows during the on-season.

There is not much information available of this casino on the internet, if you know more please leave a comment.

UPDATE: There area many fake reviews of this casino online, therefore I can not make an accurate review analysis. Fake reviews are always a bad sign, a red flag, I would consider avoiding this casino, just for this alone.

Seems to be the worst casino in Armenia right now.

 

Games: an unknown number of gaming machines (slots, video poker, Novostar, Igrosoft, Gaminator, horrible, outdated, low quality slot selection, really bad, don’t come here for the slots), and unknown number of tables (blackjack, American Roulette, Texas Hold’em Poker and Russian Poker*)

They also have a VIP section.

 

*Russain poker: Appeared in the 1990s in Russia and in former countries of the Soviet union. It is said it was the favourite game of the Russian soldiers, who brought it with them to the Eastern European countries where they were stationed.

You play against the dealer. The payout table is the following:

Meta review analysis: The casino gets very good reviews 4.5/5, this is the best rated Armenian casino, although there are not many reviews and ratings online

 

21+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

 

UPDATE 2022: There are only 3 casinos remaining in the Republic of Armenia, the Parisian Casino (address: 2 Saralanj Street, Tsakhkadzor, Armenia), the 4th casino on this list closed permanently.

/Comment: It was a small, very bad casino, not a big loss, probably Senator Golden Palace will close too, very soon./

Gamble responsibly,
SimonTheSorcerer

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.

That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.

Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
