Simon’s Guide to Estonia Online Casinos and and Land-based Venues

This is a picture of the exterior of the Estonian Casino Fenikss in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Under the picture you can read about the other casinos and online casinos of Estonia and laws regulating casino gambling in the country.

Estonia Casinos Guide

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in Estonia (officially the Republic of Estonia [Eesti Vabariik], a small Northern European country, a member of the EU, with a population of only 1.3 million). Find out which are the best casinos and online casino sites in Estonia, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

 

Online casinos in Estonia

Legal status of digital casinos in Estonia: legal since 2008, operators require a licence

 

Online casino gambling is legal in Estonia and has been since 2008. Online casino gambling in the country was first legalised for Estonian companies only. In the following years, online casino gambling was also made legal for foreign operators (sometime in 2010), though no actual licences were issued for years.

The main reason for the legalisation of online gambling in Estonia was the 2008-2009 financial crisis. The government hoped that by allowing and taxing online casinos they could get some extra revenue to stabilise the country’s finances. Up until that point most players played on unlicensed foreign casino platforms that didn’t pay any taxes.

The plan seems to have been at least partially successful. There are now multiple locally licensed online casinos (see below for a list). However, the largest Estonian online gambling platform is not a private company, but it is still Eesti Loto’s digital platform (the state owned lottery company).

The second one is OlyBet, the online casino and sports betting site operated by the company Olympic Entertainment Group, which also owns most brick and mortar casinos in the country (see below for a list of brick & mortar casinos in the country).

Along with issuing online casino licences, the government has also decided on blacklisting and blocking foreign, unlicensed online casinos since 20111. At the moment hundreds of such sites are blocked by ISPs – Internet Service Providers (but it seems like only the biggest unlicensed gambling sites are blocked), and users accessing them are redirected to the Estonian Tax and Customs Department’s website.

Because Estonia is an EU country, Article 56 TFEU2 (EU gambling directives) apply. Only licensed operators can accept players from Estonia.

Even though internet service providers block unlicensed online casinos, ordinary players are not prosecuted or fined for playing in unlicensed online casinos.

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Estonia?

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

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Estonia: 

The aforementioned ETCB, the Estonian Tax and Customs Board is tasked with enforcing, overseeing and licensing gambling establishments, land-based or online, within the country. Their website is available in English as well.

You have to contact them if you wish to apply for an online casino licence in Estonia.

There are two types of licenses private companies can apply for: casino license (covers all sorts of casino games, poker and their online equivalent as well) and a “toto licence” (covers betting and sports betting, brick & mortar and over the internet).

Companies that apply for the license should have a minimum capital of: €130,000 for online sportsbooks and €1,000,000 for digital casinos.

Establishing an Estonian company is not a requirement (must be an EU, or Eurozone company), but a physical presence in the country is mandatory.

Annual license fees: sportsbooks, bookmakers – €35,200, casinos – €51,200 (2021 values)

Land-based casinos in Estonia

Legal status of casinos in Estonia: legal since 1995, operators require a licence

 

Casinos are legal in Estonia since 1995, according first to the 1995 Law on Gambling1, which was replaced by the Gambling Act in 20082.

Estonia has around 50 licensed “casinos” (down from 57 in 2016). The reason for the quotation marks is that since 2010 there is no difference between slot halls and casinos anymore, bot require the same licence. Now all casino gambling establishments have the same requirements, namely, they must have at least 40 slot machines and/or 5 tables.

This means that the Estonian gambling legislation makes no difference between slot parlours, electronic casinos and casinos.

However, in reality there is quite the difference, in the casino industry this is how we define these gambling establishments:

  • Slot hall definition: only gaming machines, and perhaps a poker section, no electronic tables, no live tables, smaller than a casino usually
  • Casino definition: gaming machines + tables and/or card games, significantly bigger than a slot hall usually, often attached to a hotel
  • Electronic casino definition: gaming machines + electronic tables, no live tables, no poker section

 

In Estonia, according to the universally accepted definitions, there are only 2 casinos (Olympic Park Casino, Olympic Casino Olümpia) and about 10 electronic casinos. However, for marketing reasons, all 50 gaming venues call themselves casinos, erroneously.

Because there are so few casino in Estonia, I couldn’t even make a top 5. Therefore, electronic casinos were also included in the list below (although most of these only have 2 poker tables, which are used perhaps 2-3 times per year, and they have perhaps one electronic roulette wheel, they are barely more than slot halls).

As you can see Estonia has very small gambling establishments, despite the favourable taxation (one of the lowest in Europe). This is the result of the low population + a very low number of tourists (by European standards, 4 million per ear, pre-coronavirus). There are just simply not enough paying customers for more, bigger, real casinos.

Prior to 2010 there were gaming machines outside of casinos, and there was a separate licensing process for these. There were 169 gambling establishments, most of them were just pubs with a few slot machines, now, after consolidation, the number of them is declining year by year.

UPDATE COVID-19: Due the the extreme reduction of tourist arrivals and coronavirus prevention measures, the reduction in the number of licensed gambling establishments have accelerated, and the number of them is expected to drop below 50 for the first time since the legalization of gambling. For context: there were 57 venues with a casino license in 2016, in 2019 there were 54, and after the pandemic a 15% permanent, long-term reduction is expected. Although the official number are not yet available at the time of writing.

By far the biggest casino group is the OGE (Olympic Games Entertainment), which operates about 40% of all the slot halls and casinos. They also operate Olympic Park Casino, which is by far the biggest casino in the country.

You can find all the currently operating brick and mortar casinos in the list below, and a few o the biggest and best rated slot halls.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Estonia?

Yes, both locals and tourists can play in the casinos.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Estonia:

The ETCB, the Estonian Tax and Customs Board is tasked with enforcing, overseeing and licensing gambling establishments, land-based or online, within the country. Their website is available in English as well.

You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of gambling establishment in the country.

Companies that apply for the license should have a minimum capital of: €1,000,000 for casinos.

Establishing an Estonian company is not a requirement, but a physical presence in the country is.

Annual license fees: casinos – €51,200 (2021 values)

Even though it is the biggest gaming venue in the country, by international standards this is a small casino.

The casino is attached to a 200 room Hilton Hotel, and there is a steak house and a lobby café + a cocktail bar and a lounge (the Eforea Spa is in the same building too).

The casino has a 1,600 m2 gaming area, and according to hundreds of reviews online, this is the best rated Estonian casino.

Bitcoin casinos in Estonia

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Bitcoin gambling is not specifically regulated in Estonia. However, it is not recognized asa legal tender, and therefore none of the land-based Estonia casinos accept crypto.

However, online casinos can accept bitcoin and other cryptos through the use of various payment processors. Some online casinos, which accept Estonian players, also accept digital alternative currencies as well.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Estonia.

 

 

Other forms of online gambling in Estonia

Along with online casino gambling, many other forms of online gambling are also legal and available in Estonia, though they also require a license. The most popular form of online gambling, apart from online casinos, is most likely the and sports betting offered by the state owned Eesti Loto and Sportdiennustus respectively.

Online sports betting has been available in the country before most online casinos were established. Sportdiennustus, the state-run sports betting company has been offering online betting opportunities since as early as 2014, and online lottery predates both.

Still, the online sports betting market was greatly affected by the legislative changes in 2010 and 2011. First the market was opened to Estonian private companies, such as OlyBet, and later EU online sports betting sites could also apply for licences.

Online poker is also quite popular in Estonia. OlyBet was among the first gambling sites to receive an Estonian online gambling license, and they also offer online poker. However, since then, many international online poker sites such as PokerStars have also applied for and received the licence to operate legally in Estonia.

Online lottery and online bingo are also available in Estonia, though these were not liberalised. They remain the monopoly of the state-run lottery company, Eesti Loto.

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!
By being on this site, you agree to terms and conditions, and privacy policy. You must be at least 18, and if you are a gambling addict, or a citizen of Hungary, please leave the site.
