Online casinos in Georgia

Legal status of digital casinos in Georgia: legal, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Georgia.

Though the 90s brought only instability and economic ruin to the country, Georgia has been decidedly pro-western, pro-capitalist and pro-gambling since the 2003 Rose Revolution.

This attitude is also reflected in the country’s and the population’s generally positive stance towards gambling.

Online casinos are also legal in Georgia, in fact it’s a fast growing sector. There are about 100 companies active in the Georgian gambling market, and most of them operate online platforms as well1.

Internet penetration has traditionally been quite low in the country, though it has shown a sharp rise in the past few years. Still, the countryside is still very poor and it is lagging behind when it comes to internet access, limiting the local online gambling market.

With a Georgia online gambling license local companies can accept players locally but also from abroad as well. This, coupled with the low gambling tax (see below in the online casino taxation section) has attracted investors to the country, and resulted in a flourishing online gambling sector.

Online casinos have quickly become very popular in the country, to the point where land-based casinos have expressed concerns over online casinos taking away a large proportion of their players. The Georgian parliament has also been making efforts to address the negative effects of the spreading of online casino gambling (as a result many unlicensed online gambling websites are blocked and player protection and harm reduction is he focus of the government).

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Georgia?

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 Georgia: 

Online gambling license are issued by the Revenue Service of The Ministry of Finance of Georgia.

You have to contact them and file an online  application if you wish to set up an online casino in the country.

Land-based casinos in Georgia

Legal status of brick & mortar casinos in Georgia: legal since 1989, operators require a licence

 

Georgia is one of the few countries in the predominately muslim and orthodox region where both gambling and online gambling are officially legal. Consequently Georgia capitalizes on this unique situation and purposefully works on attracting players from nearby muslim and orthodox countries (mostly from Turkey, where casinos were outlawed and Russia, where there are barely any casinos). One of the towns, Batumi, is even nicknamed “The Las Vegas of the Black Sea” a resort, beach town that has more casinos than the capital of the country.

Batumi was also the place where the first casino opened in 1989, when the country was still part of the USSR. In 1989 laws were relaxed, and a casino opened in Batumi catering to communist party elites (that’s actually where Batumi’s image as a casino town comes from, it’s where communist party officials went to gamble).

Casinos are actually quite popular in Georgia, both among locals and tourists.

The largest casino in Georgia is Casino Adjara, in Tbilisi, the capital (you can see the list of casinos below).

An interesting feature of the casinos in Georgia is the lottery system. There are various lottery draws in all of the Georgian casinos. It’s actually a raffle, it’s just a misnomer, players can win money or cars if they get lucky (even though other countries have so called “slot tournaments”, which are similar, in Georgia this is ubiquitous, all casinos have these lottery draws and it’s not based on how much you play on the slots, it’s a raffle, pure luck).

There are currently 12 licensed casinos in Georgia: 5 in Tbilisi, 6 in Batumi, and 1 in the countryside.

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Georgia?

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

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Georgia:

The Ministry of Finance of Georgia is responsible of licensing and overseeing the gambling sector of the country.

Gambling officially belongs to the entertainment industry and it is meant to encourage the development of the tourism industry, according to the official stance of the government. The local authorities support tourism and facilitate the development of the gambling industry because of this.

Casino licenses are issued by the Revenue Service (part of the Ministry of Finance).

The fees usually range between 50,000 to 1 million GEL ($20,000 to $400,000), you have to pay the most in Tbilisi and in the countryside it’s 50,000 GEL.

Casino license are valid for 5 years.

Taxation of brick & mortar gambling establishments in Georgia:

Gambling taxes are really low in Georgia to encourage the growth of the sector, and to facilitate tourism. Actually, casinos in the countryside are exempt from paying gambling taxes if they also build and operate a hotel with at least 80 rooms.

The gambling tax rate is 10% (of the total gambling revenue) on top of all the other regular taxes.

This is a really low amount compared to the neighboring countries, it’s no surprise that the gambling sector is doing so well.

Casino Iveria

Casino Iveria, address: First Republic Square, 0108 Tbilisi

Casino Iveria is advertised as a casino with “European interior, international standard of service” (not specified which European country they meant, and there is no international, standardized service levels in the casino sector, the same way as hotels have the star rating, and restaurants the Michelin stars, there is no equivalent of such in the casino world….).

Besides the marketing gimmick, what is certain about the casino is that it has been in operation since 2009.

Interestingly Hotel Iveria (seen on the left, in which the casino is located) was a refugee camp for a long time, and it was extremely dilapidated and it was known for criminal activity, drugs and alcoholism. As much as a 1000 refugees were housed in it for 10 years. Now it’s one of the most luxurious and prestigious building in Tbilisi, a testament to the changing city, going from bad and poor to good and opulent.

/Comment: The countryside of Georgia is still really poor btw., it’s only the cities that are developing rapidly./

They have a restaurant and 4 bars.

Golden Palace Casino, address: 8/10 Konstantine Gamsakhurdia St, Batumi

Golden Palace casino and hotel is located in a historic building, pictured on the left. A great building for a hotel and casino (IMO looks a little bit like a French chateau, which are beautiful but over-the-top buildings, this is more discreet).

One of the youngest and most modern casino, in operation since 2015, advertised as the “first casino of the global gaming community” (which means it’s owned by a very rich foreign company, which has the money to buy the best of everything).

Meta review analysis: the casino gets okay reviews, 3/5, some people complain about rude, unfriendly staff, and that the food is bad in the restaurant, also there is no shrimp, which is a complaint that keeps popping up in the reviews, for some reason (perhaps they have it on the menu and in reality there is none? or this kind of establishment is visited by born-into-wealth spoiled rich silver-spoons who need to write bad reviews if a restaurant doesn’t serve overpriced shrimp…, it’s one or the other, you decide)

Bitcoin casino in Georgia

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Bitcoin is legal in Georgia. However, cryptocurrencies are not accepted as legal tender, consequently none of the brick & mortar casinos accept any.

However, Georgia licensed online casinos should be able to theoretically accept bitcoin, litecoin, ehtreum etc.. due to the use of payment processors (third party apps, which exchange crypto into other forms of currency). And some of them actually do accept crypto, mostly through Neteller/Skrill.

You can see a list of online casinos below, which accept bitcoin and players from Georgia.

 

Other forms of online gambling in Georgia

Online gambling in general, is legal in Georgia. While many locals enjoy gambling in casinos, mobile and online gambling have also been steadily gaining in popularity. Most of the locally licensed online gambling sites belong to the companies that operate the land based establishments, though there are some exclusively online operators as well.

Online sports betting is also legal. The largest bookmakers in Georgia are Europe Bet, Adzharabet, and the Armenian VivaroBet. But most of the international online sports betting sites also accept players from Georgia.

The Georgian national lottery has been operated by the Georgian Lottery Company since 2009. Since 2012 they have an online lottery as well. Lottery games offered include Mega Millions, Powerball and Fantasy 5.

It should be noted the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic hit the market pretty hard, and because most of the online casinos are operated by land-based casino companies it negatively affected the online market, 2 casinos closed down, 1 changed hands and about 10 online operations went bankrupt*.

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!
