Online casinos in Belarus

Legal status of digital casinos in Belarus: legal since 2018, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Belarus since 2018, according to Presidential Decree No.3051.

Operators require a license, and already 5 domestic land-based casino operators (with already existing casinos, slot halls in Belarus) have expressed an interest in acquiring these new licenses.

It’s not known how many of them actually managed to acquire one (if you know, please leave a comment).

Some unlicensed foreign online casinos are blocked but some of them are freely accessible. It is not clear based on what criteria the state owned Beltelecom (only ISP in Blerus) decides which gambling websites to block and which not to.

Foreign online gambling websites need to get a local licence too, to accept players from Belarus.

Opera Casino in Minsk is the biggest and the most iconic casino of Belarus (and it is also the best looking IMO, check out the video of the casino’s interior below).

Even though it is he biggest casino of Belarus, by international standards this is quite a small casino.

The Casino is attached to the huge Beijing Hotel complex with 2 restaurants, bars, and the many other amenities of a 5 star hotel.

Apart from the Russian guests, wealthy Chinese travelers also frequent this casino due to the proximity of the Bejing hotel.

This is a posh casino, very expensive, mostly aimed at rich travelers and the local rich, upper middle class people. Not really aimed at the average people, it’s for the kind of people who stay at 5 star hotels (a local slot hall is more suitable to people on a budget).

 

Games: around 122 slot machines (the slot machines are really old, outdated, not very good brands), and around 20 tables (blackjack, 3 American Roulette wheels, and poker tables of Texas, Oasis, Omaha, Ultimate and Russian poker*) + an unknown number of electronic roulette terminals

The casino also has multiple VIP sections and a sports betting corner (BejingBet)

Crypto, bitcoin casinos in Belarus

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Belarus has legalized transactions in cryptocurrencies, and the first Belarusian bitcoin exchange opened in 2020.

The popularity of alternative digital currencies was a direct result of a tax on purchases made with foreign currencies introduced in the early 2010s. As this does not include bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, this has led to an increase in their usage.

However, placing bets with alternative digital currencies (e.g.: bitcoin, litecoin, ethereiuem, etc…) is not addressed by the gambling legislation for now.

For now, licensed gambling establishment or online gambling platforms can not accept cryptocurrencies in Belarus (because they are not yet officially recognized as currency). Consequently, there are no land-based domestic bitcoin casinos in Belarus at all.

Only foreign online casinos with a Belarus licence, in addition to their other gambling licenses, can accept bitcoin from Belarus players (you can see these below).

 

Other forms of online gambling in Belarus

Online games other than casino gambling are also legal and regulated. Sports betting for example is legal too. Bookmakers need a licence, just like casinos, and they can operate online platforms to.o.

Online lottery is legal as well, and some of the Belarusian lotteries are available online.

Online poker is also legal (with an online casino licence).

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!
