Online casinos in Moldova

Legal status of digital casinos in Moldova: legal since 2016, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Moldova since 2016 (made legal by amendments to the gambling legislation).

Online casino gambling is one of the two sectors, which are not the monopoly of the state (e.g.: the other one is online poker, although both the sports betting and lottery sectors have involvement from private operators, namely the private owner of the National Lottery AD, Bulgaria‘s lottery operator1)

Moldova is Europe’s poorest country, therefore the online casino gambling sector is very small, the internet penetration in the country is only around 50%.

Online casinos, which wish to accept players from Moldova, must acquire a license from the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure (details can be seen below, in the Moldova online casinos licensing section).

The legalization of online casinos started sometime in 2010, when the Ministry of Economy started preparations for the introduction of an online casinos in Moldova. These materialized as amendments in 2016 and 2017.

The project was supported financially by the European Union, to facilitate the creation of online gambling regulations, which conform to EU regulations (as a preparation for a possible Moldovan membership down the line).

The country aims to form closer economic ties with the European Union. However, by far Russia has the strongest influence on the politics and economy of Moldova, especially within Transnistria (officially the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic [PMR]), the unrecognised strongly pro-russian breakaway state of Moldova (online casinos are legal in Transnistria as well).

Only licensed online casinos can accept players from Moldova. Unlicensed online casinos are blocked by the internet service providers.

Land-based casinos in Moldova

Legal status of casinos in Moldova: legal since 1991, operators require a licence, slot halls are also legal

 

Land-based casinos have been legal since 1918. However, they were made illegal under the soviet occupation and were only relegalized in 1991, after the fall of the Soviet Union.

The main piece of the casino gambling legislation is the No. 291 Law of the Republic of Moldova – On the organization and execution of gambling activities 20161 (which replaced the 1999 Law No. 2852).

UPDATE 2021: There are currently 4 casinos in the country, 3 of which are located in the capital of Moldova, Chisinau. and 1 is located in the controversial Transnistria the unrecognized breakaway state (which the poorer part of the country).

There were more casinos prior to the global pandemic, you can find a list of closed casinos under the list of the currently operating casinos below.

The largest casino in the country was Napoleon Palace, which has been closed for years now. Casino Europa is the biggest one currently, but right now there aren’t any big casinos in the country, and even Casino Europa is considered small by European standards.

Slot halls are also legal, and the casino sector of Moldova is actually dominated by these small venues, over 100+ of them are in operation throughout the country. These venues are often just pubs with a few gaming machines.

Slot halls are more aimed at locals and the casinos target tourists more, of which Moldova only receives 117 K per year3, making the country the least visited European country.

/Comment: Slot halls are gambling establishments, which only have gaming machines and electronic tables, they don’t have any live dealer tables or card games. They can range from big establishments that are almost like real casinos to basically pubs with slots./

Slot halls are quite popular in Moldova, and the country also has a high number of problem gamblers as well.

The Moldovan government is so worried about the negative effects of casino gambling that there have been proposals to ban casinos and/or slot halls altogether. A milder version of this is limit casinos to outside of cities, towns as well as limiting opening times, but these are just plans for now.

To enter a casino in Moldova you must be 21+, unlike in the rest of Europe, where it is 18+.

Moldova casinos never specify a dress code, even though it’s clear that all of them expect patrons to dress up for the occasion (at least smart casual), they also don’t have entrance fees (unlike most other countries in Europe).

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

List of all the casinos in Moldova

This is a list of all the currently operating casinos in the country, 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., Nuovo Casino
This is a picture of the logo of Nuovo Casino (located in the Radisson Blu Leogrand Hotel in Chișinău) on the side of the building, taken during the daytime. This is the first item on this list of all the 4 casinos of Moldova. You can find the other casinos on this list below this one. You can read more info about this specific Moldovan land-based casino to the right of the picture.

Nuovo Casino

Nuovo Casino, address: Strada Mitropolit Varlaam 77, Radisson Blu Leogrand Hotel, Chișinău MD2012

The venue is advertised as “the largest elite casino in Moldova”. It is located within the 5 star Radisson Blu Leogrand Hotel, the most luxurious hotel complex of Moldova (and also the most expensive). This is where foreign dignitaries, diplomats and visiting presidents and billionaire businessmen all usually stay.

It’s an upscale, elegant casino with very few slots. Just like most casinos, which are positioned as private gaming clubs, they also focus on table games primarily.

/Comment: In the gambling industry, table games are seen as much more upscale, elegant, luxurious, and slots and gaming machines are seen as entertainment fit only for the hoi polloi, the masses.

Casinos, which aim to attract well-off high rollers traditionally all focus on table and card games./   

Interestingly, despite being located in a luxury hotel complex, and primarily catering to wealthy tourists, their website is full of broken English and it seems like it was translated from Moldovan by a free translation app. Very disappointing, lack of attention to details.

Not much info is available online sadly.

 

Games: around 20 gaming machines (slots, video poker), and around 12 tables (American roulette, blackjack, Texas Hold’em, Russian Poker*, Three Card Poker, Oasis Poker**, Ultimate Poker)

It is not known whether they have a poker room or not. If you know please drop a comment below.

 

*Russain poker explanation, tutorial: If you want to know how to play Russian Poker, then watch the following step by step video tutorial:

 

**Oasis poker explanation, tutorial: A variant of Caribbean stud poker that permits discards for a fee.

 

Video of Nuovo Casino:

 

Opening hours: 24/7

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no official dress code, not specified on the website, but I recommend semi-formal considering how the casino positions itself

Entrance fee: none

 

Meta review analysis: the casino gets really good reviews, 4.5 /5, this is the second best rated casino in Moldova

 

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

2., Casino Europa
This is a picture of the front entrance of Casino Europa in Chișinău, capital of Moldova. You can read more about this brick & mortar gaming venue to the right of the picture.

Casino Europa

Casino Europa, address: Dacia Blvd 18/1, Chișinău

The Europa Casino is the largest casino of Moldova (still considered tiny by international standards).

It is situated in Dacia Boulevard in Chișinău, the capital city of Moldova, only 17 minutes away from Chișinău airport, and about 14 minutes away from the train station.

The casino is standalone, it is not attached to any hotel (the only standalone casino in Moldova).

 

Games: around 25 gaming machines (slots, video poker, very old machines), and around 14 tables (3 American roulette wheels, blackjack, Texas Hold’em, Russian Poker, Oasis Poker, Three Card Poker)

They reportedly have a poker room as well, but there is no info about it on their official website, and there is no online tournament schedule.

They also have a VIP section.

 

Video of Casino Europa:

 

Opening hours: 24/7

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no official dress code, not specified on the website, but I recommend smart casual based on the reviews

Entrance fee: none

 

Meta review analysis: the casino gets really good reviews, 4 /5, no major problems

 

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

3., Casino Sheriff
This is a picture of Casino Sheriff in Tiraspol, Moldova. This is the third element of this Moldova casino list. You can find the other elements of this list above and beyond this one. You can find more info about this terrestrial casino to the right of the picture.

Casino Sheriff

Casino Sheriff, address: Strada Sverdlov 69, Tiraspol

Casino Sheriff is the casino club of Hotel Russia.

As with all casino clubs,  it’s an elegant, expensive, luxurious venue, which to caters to the upper middle class or above (dress code: semi-formal). Very similar to Nuovo Casino.

The casino only has table games uniquely, no slots whatsoever (the only such casino in Moldova).

/Comment: All private casino clubs focus on table and card games, instead of slots, but only a few European casino clubs don’t have any slots at all, this is one of them./

The casino is located in Tiraspol, which is the de facto capital of the unrecognized breakaway state Transnistria, and this is the only casino of the Transnistria region.

/Comment: Often these types of casino clubs are owned by one local super rich person, and this is basically their private club (speaking from personal experience). And this here the local rich and famous hang out. 

So, if you are trying to cozy up to the local 1% this is the place to go./

You can see the interior of the casino on the picture at the top of the page.

 

Games: around 16 tables (American roulette, blackjack, Russian poker, Texas Hold’em)

They also have a VIP section.

 

Video of Casino Europa:

I couldn’t find any video of the casino online. If you know of any, please let me know. You can see a few pictures of the place here.

 

Opening hours: 18:00 – 6:00

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no official dress code, not specified on the website, but I recommend semi-formal considering how the casino positions itself

Entrance fee: none

 

Meta review analysis: the casino gets great reviews, 4.5 /5, this would be the best rated casino in Moldova (certainly the best rated casino in Transnistria), but it only has 20 reviews, which is just not enough, therefore I will wait until the place gets at least 50+ reviews

 

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

4., Casino at Hotel Jumbo
This is a photo of the building of the casino in Hotel Jumbo. This is the fourth and last brick & mortar gambling venue on this list of Moldovan casinos. You can read more about this establishments to the right of the picture.

Casino at Hotel Jumbo

Casino at Hotel Jumbo, address: Decebal Boulevard 23/3, MD 2002 Chişinău

Not much is known about this casino. Even the hotel in which it is located (Hotel Jumbo) barely has any online presence, and the casino is barely mentioned, only a as a footnote.

There are no pictures, videos or reviews of this place.

If you know anything about this place, please share the info on the comments section below.

Bitcoin casinos in Moldova

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Currently bitcoin gambling is not regulated in Moldova, and none of the land-based casinos accept any cryptocurrency.

On February 15, 2018, the National Bank of Moldova issued a statement recommending that Moldovans be as cautious as possible in deciding whether to invest in crypto-assets, given the technical characteristics of cryptocurrency, its high volatility, and the absence of any regulation that would protect investors.

However, virtual currencies are not actually illegal.

Going against the statement of the Moldovan National Bank, a law was passed in Transnistria, on January 31, 2018, to legalize cryptocurrency mining. The authorities of the self-proclaimed republic promise exemption from taxes, duty-free import and export of mining equipment, and assistance with energy supply. However Moldova doesn’t recognize these laws at all, and even Transnistria itself didn’t yet regulate bitcoin gambling despite the pro-cryptocurrency approach.

However, some of the online casinos, which accept Moldovan players also accept bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum and other alternative digital currencies. You can see these casino websites below.

 

Other forms of online gambling in Moldova

Apart from online casinos and online poker, every form of online gambling is a monopoly of the Loteria Nationala a Moldovei, the state owned lottery of Moldova.

 

The following casino websites accept players from Moldova:

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!
