In short: gambling and online gambling  are legal in Russia, with strict limitations, you can see the details below.

 

History of Gambling in Russia - click to expand

History of Gambling in Russia: Gambling has a long and turbulent history in Russia (officially the Russian Federation). Prior to the disastrous communist period from 1928 to 1987 (which killed more people than the Nazi regime in Germany and all the World War 2 casualties in Europe combined, most of them innocent civilians) gambling was a private pastime of the rich nobles and the wealthy, in private secluded getaways, in the countryside, attended by many servants. Gambling wasn’t even the focus of these private clubs, it was merely a side-attraction, something to pass the time while they decided the fate of millions, entire nations, behind closed doors away from prying eyes (nowadays it’s called DAVOS or Bilderberg group and they do it in Switzerland, and there is no gambling…).

During the communist era gambling was almost entirely illegal, with few exceptions, especially close to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, in  the 1980s. After the dissolution of the USSR, and  during the gradual transition to a market economy, gambling was barely regulated, up until 2002.

Gambling in Russia was a huge problem for the government between 1987-2002*. The first legally operating Russian casino was introduced in 1989. However, in the years following the collapse of the Soviet Union, gambling facilities started to pop up all throughout the country. By 1994, there were approximately 496 registered gambling establishments in Russia (and twice as many illegally operating venues, according to estimates, Moscow reportedly had a “casino” every 100 meters (more like a pub with slot machines, but newspapers were very sensationalistic, even back then). And only one in 3 was actually licensed. Corruption and organized crime was rampant. Most of the venues operating in the country, even the licensed ones, were notoriously avoiding taxes (to be fair, that was common in every business sector back then, not just among gambling establishments).

In response to this situation, a law was crafted in 1998 to clear up matters of taxation and licensing. As a result of these measures, tax revenues from the gambling industry increased, the police started to crack down on illegally operating gaming venues (but not the ones operated by organized crime, they lasted much longer, many survived the cleanse and transitioned, and became law-abiding, legally operating businesses, and these ex-crooks constitute a sizeable part of the contemporary Russian gambling market, even to this day). This shift brought about a dramatic upturn in the number of casinos and other gambling facilities in the country.

In 2002, the Federal Sports Agency (FSA) was granted the right to issue gambling licenses, while regional governments were stripped of this function (they were the roots of corruption and had ties with organized crime). The FSA introduced an even more liberal licensing policy. It gave away licenses for the Russian Ruble equivalent of approximately $100, this way, even the smaller operators in the countryside had a chance to start operating legitimately. As a result, between 2002 and 2005 the number of casinos in Moscow doubled, and an astonishing 60,000 slot machines were operating in the city (that means, roughly 1 slot machine/170 residents, most of these sloth parlours existed already, they were just operating illegally, without a license, the $100 license seemed to work, but it was all bait and switch, you can see why below).

 

Current situation of games of chance in the Russian Federation: After most of the illegally operating gambling establishment got licensed and started paying taxes (between 2002 and 2005), a major political and media backlash started, and the government started showing its true colours. The grace period ended in 2006. The the government introduced a radical countermeasure. Federal law N 244-FZ was passed on December 29, 2006, prohibiting gambling venues with slot machines and table games everywhere in Russia, except for the special gambling zones** ending the booming, but very problematic gambling industry overnight.

The law came into effect fully in 2009, despite lobbying, threats, bribes, attacks, assassinations. Authorities basically closed down all casino gambling operations outside the four gambling zones, almost overnight. This leads us to the current situation: land-based casino gambling in Russia is only allowed in the four UPDATE: now five regions, namely (map below):

 

A picture of a map displaying the four zones with legal gambling in Russia. Only in these four zones are there legal Russian casinos.
Gambling zones in Russia, according to the 2006 legislation, updated wit ht 2019 Crimea Gold Coast planned gambling zone.

 

The prohibition also extends to online gambling in Russia. In 2006, all online gambling was outlawed in the country.

In 2015 February, Russia’s media authority Roskomnadzor, announced that it would start blocking domains of blacklisted online gambling websites. The list includes Russian, but also many international operators as well. The agency actually started to block such domains in late September, and by the end of October dozens of gambling sites were made unavailable, including the biggest global operators, such as 888 Poker, Betway, Bwin.party, JackpotCity, Ladbrokes, Marathon Bet, Pinnacle Sports, Titan Poker and Unibet, and Russians, like Favbet, Fonbet, Liga Stavok, TrioBet, Vulkan-Bet and 1xbet*****, and since then, much more, more than a 1000+ sites were added to this list.

However, since the 2016 amendment to Federal Law No. 244 it’s possible for private companies to get online sports betting and tote licenses. This is the first big step towards a more open, properly regulated gambling market that investors actually want to invest in. As hard it is to believe, considering the history, origins, and the current situation of the gambling sector in Russia, the country is actually heading towards a much more open, regulated, liberalized gambling industry. one baby step at a time, under the watchful gaze of the Russian government and president Vladimir Putin. However, the meddling, interference, and politically motivated actions of the government are really discourage investments, growth and really big projects. A good example of this is the ex-gambling zone Azov City, and the 3 casinos which were located there, worth about a €1 billion*****, and now, after the politically motivated relocation of the zone, they are all gone, all that investment down the drain, losing €1 billion is too much, even for the famously rich Russian oligarchs.

Additionally, the state-owned lottery company has an online lottery platform, and also an online bingo site, these are the two additional legal forms of online gambling in Russia. Apart from these 4 exemptions, mentioned previously, gambling using information and telecommunication networks (including the internet) is prohibited according to article 171.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and article 14.1.1 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offenses.

Russian laws also impose a small fine on players that participate in gambling activities conducted by unlicensed operators, both online and offline. However, currently there is little to no risk involved in playing on foreign online platforms from Russia, as authorities only target gambling providers and organizers, not players. Still, I don’t recommend playing at unlicensed online gambling websites, if you are from Russia. Despite this, there are still some online gambling websites that accept Russian players, if you are interested you can find them below.

If they no longer accept Russian players, or if they are blocked in the Russian Federation, please let me know in the comments section (at the bottom of the page), so I can update the website accordingly. Thank you.

 

Can tourists play online from Russia? 

Yes, the laws discussed on this webpage only apply to Russian citizens, and does not apply to tourists. Tourists (expats, non-citizens, illegals) can play online freely. However, many unlicensed foreign gambling websites will be blocked by Roskomnadzor, and won’t be accessible while using the Russian internet infrastructure.

 

Russia gambling license

Land-based gambling licenses in Russia:

You can get a casino, slot machine hall, bookmaker or tote office licence in Russia. Slot machine halls and casinos can only be located in the special gaming zones, bookmakers, sports betting offices can be located outside of these zones.

It’s the Ministry of Finance that issues land-based gambling licenses. You have to contact them if you wish to set up a gambling business.

You will need:

 

Online gambling licenses Russia:

Online gambling licenses are handled by the Federal Tax Service, contact them if you wish to set up an online gambling business in Russia.

Currently, according to the 2016 amendment to the Russian gambling legislation, it’s only possible to get an online sports betting license and/or a tote license (for now, a company can have both, but the Russian government expressed their intent to make sure in the future a company can only have one).

A legal entity registered in accordance with the laws of the Russian Federation has the right to obtain an online betting or tote license after it meets the following financial requirements:

 

The paperwork takes about 1.5 months and costs approximately 300 rubles. You must also join a self-regulatory organization. As of today, there are only two of them: Bookmakers SRO and First SRO. You will have to pay an “entrance fee, an annual membership fee and a contribution to the compensation fund” (a total of about 30-32 million rubles extra, + about 1 million rubles annual fee).

All transactions between a player and a sportsbook must only use the centralized Russian payment processor TSUPIS. TSUPIS deducts the payable taxes automatically, even deducts the personal income tax from players’ winnings, and it is independent of the US banking system and Wall Street (a.k.a., colloquially known as the 1%).

Summary:

 

Casino gambling in Russia

Casinos in Russia: legal, within the special gambling oblasts

Online casino gambling in Russia: illegal, players are not prosecuted

 

There are no legally operating online casinos in Russia. Many of the major foreign operators’ domains are on the media authority Roskomnadzor’s blacklist*, and are banned by ISPs all throughout the country. The legislation makes it somewhat difficult for players to access these sites and theoretically, gaming online is punishable by a minor fine. However, the chances of an individual player being caught are minuscule – authorities aim their efforts at operators.

However, I don’t recommend using a VPN and trying to access blocked unlicensed websites. If the online casinos below no longer accept players from Russia, or if they are blocked for some reason, please let me know, at the time of writing they all accept player from the Russian Federation, including the disputed territories.

Russian online casinos: Even though there are no online casino licenses, online gambling platforms which have poker, casino gambling etc., in addition to sports betting, allegedly use a loophole to get around the legislation, by getting two gambling licenses, one for their sportsbooks, which is legal. However, allegedly, they bend the rules by getting another offshore gambling license (usually from Curacao, Panama, Aruba) and simply transfer players to this shell company if they click on the casino games on the website. And that offshore gambling license covers casino games, poker, bingo, and a lot more than the Russian betting licence would. This way, with multiple licenses, and by sending players to an offshore server, and handling transactions on an offshore server, some of the licenced gambling sites are able to offer casino games online, although, I doubt this loophole will be left open for a long time.

Is this illegal? Sounds simple, but hard to answer actually. The offshore gambling licence is outside of Russia’s jurisdiction, and online casinos simply transfer the players to a e.g.: Panama data center, and the gambling all of a sudden took place in Panama. In Panama that’s perfectly legal and fine. From Russia’s point of view it’s outside of their jurisdiction, because the other gambling license is in Panama, and gambling took place in Panama, handled by a shell company in Panama.  And the company that transferred the players probably made them accept some shady terms and conditions (99.9% of people never read terms and conditions pages). Not easy to attack this from a legal point of view. Sadly, there is a good chance that this is technically legal, obviously very shady, unethical, but for now, they seem to get away with it.

This is just one of the many ways they bend the rules, these sort of legal shenanigans are very complicated, not easy to understand.  There are law firms (usually located in offshore tax havens), who specialize in making these complicated networks, and are tasked with finding and abusing loopholes.  The Russian government sues these operators for years,  eventually they usually get stripped of their gambling license, and they will be put on the blacklist, and will be blocked. But in the meantime, they accept players from Russia, for years, and this is a very slow, bureaucratic, legal process. A good example of this type of behaviour is the Russian gambling company 1xBet**, but there are many more (considering the history, the origins of many of these Russian gambling companies, this is not surprising at all…, see above, in the history section).

Will players get into trouble for this, for playing in these kinds of online casinos? –  No. From your point of view, you played legally online at the website of an online casino licenced in e.g.: Panama, and also in one licensed in Russia, both operating perfectly legally, with valid gambling licenses, paying taxes in Russia and Panama respectively. The worst that could happen is a small fine, but they don’t fine players because they are aware that they have no idea about these things. It would be unfair to punish the players.

Foreign online casinos ,which accept Russian players (see below) also use these offshore gambling licenses (very common in the world of online gambling) and because they are located outside of Russia, the laws of Russia are not applicable.

 

Brick and mortar casinos, on the other hand, are perfectly legal in the special gambling zones. However, as one might expect, after the legislation was enacted in 2009, underground casinos started to pop up in the country. In 2013, a reported 662 of illegal venues were shut down by the authorities. That’s quite a lot! Luckily, the law is very clear on these  illegally operating land-based venues, and anyone operating an illegal gambling establishment will face jail time and heavy fines.

Despite these issue,s all 5 of the special gambling zones in Russia attract high profile, international investors, such as casino tycoon Lawrence Ho. Plans for major casino resort complexes are already approved for most of these locations. And currently there are only 4 UPDATE: 5 casinos built, costing millions of rubles (used to be 7 but the Azov City gambling zone with 3 casinos closed down, and only one of these, Shambala, was relocated ).

There is also a single smaller slot hall Magic Crystal Casino, but it will eventually be extended to become a bigger casino with a hotel, right now, it only has slots and therefore it’s not considered a real casino.

Bingo in Russia

 

Online bingo – Russia: legal, state monopoly

 

Certain bingo games are reportedly exempt from the 2006 ban, and some country-wide lottery type bingo games continue to operate to date, all of them operated as part of the lottery organized by the state and their distributor and organizer contractors. One of these partners is “Bingo Boom”  which operates many bingo halls in Russia. And you can paly online too on the website of the Stoloto (the lottery distributor company).

Foreign online bingo operators cannot offer their services to Russians. There are no bingo or online bingo license available to foreign private companies. Moreover, many such sites are blocked by ISPs in the country. Russian laws impose a small fine on players who gamble on such sites. However, chances of an individual player being caught gambling are almost non-existent, still we definitely don’t recommend trying it. Stick to Stoloto.

The following online bingo websites accept players from Russia:

stoloto.ru, it’s a monopoly

 

Poker – Russia

 

Online poker – Russia: illegal, players are not prosecuted

Land based poker in Russia is illegal outside of casinos within the special gambling zones. However, several advocacy groups and experts are advising the government to exempt poker from the ban. They argue, that poker is game of skill, not a game of chance, and therefore it should not be treated like other casino games. It’s true that poker is not regulated as gambling in some countries, but in Russia, for now, it’s a game of chance, therefore very restricted.

Online poker too, is currently outlawed in Russia. Most major poker operators are blocked by Russian ISPs. At the casino gambling section above we detailed how some of the online gambling websites go around this legislation. The same applies to poker as well, and apart form casino games these websites let people paly poker as well. You can read the details at the casino gambling section.

The online poker websites below accept players from Russia.

Sports betting in Russia

 

Online sports betting – Russia: legal, license required

 

Sports betting companies are eligible for a licence in Russia. Under a federal licence, they can provide land based sports betting services to Russian residents anywhere in the country.

Online sports betting is legal and regulated. There are over 30 companies which have a licence already, including some of the bigger bookmakers (you can see them below). Using unlicensed sportsbooks is illegal, and Russians who place bets online with such companies might get a smaller fine (depends on the judge, considered small offence, but you will have to pay taxes on your winnings too, winnings from unlicensed bookmakers are taxable income, and you will be fined for not paying taxes, can be quite high if you win a bigger amount). It’s best to avoid unlicensed sports betting websites.

The following online sportsbooks accept registrations from Russia. If any of them doesn’t accept registrations from Russia anymore, no longer has a Russian gambling licence, or is blocked in Russia please let me know, so I can update the list. Thank you.

Lottery in Russia

 

Online lottery – Russia: legal, state monopoly

 

The federal law no. 138 regulates lottery and bingo games. Prior to 2014, many private lottery operations existed in Russia. However, from July 1, 2014 the government closed down all lottery schemes, apart form the state lottery conducted by the company Trade House Stoloto. They offer various types of lottery games and scratch cards. Many of these are also available online. Trade House Stoloto is actually a contractor for the state that organizes the lotteries. There are:

1., Lottery Organisers: AO State Sports Lotteries (Gosudarstvennye sportivnye loterei) and OOO Sportloto conduct lotteries
2., Distributor: Stoloto

Lottery is regulated by the Ministry of Finance. The revenue (after the organizers and distributors take their cut) is used in the following manner:

  • 34% of the money is used to encourage Russians to participate in physical culture and professional sports
  • 47% on sporting equipment accessible for the people (schools, open air gyms, football fields etc..)
  • 22% is spent to engage Russian residents to do sports, mass sports after work, recreationally

 

The distribution is and the projects are done by the Ministry of Sport.

Foreign online lotteries are illegal in Russia. Many of such sites are also blocked by ISPs. It is illegal for Russian residents to purchase lottery tickets online from foreign lottery websites. However, in person you can purchase tickets abroad, that’s perfectly legal. Keep in mind if you win some money playing the lottery abroad (or online despite it being illegal) it’s taxable income, only the winnings from Trade House Stoloto are tax exempt.

Apart from Stoloto, the following websites allow people from Russia to purchase lottery tickets online:

 

 

Bitcoin gambling in Russia

 

Bitcoin gambling – Russia: illegal, players are not prosecuted

 

Russia was for a long time not a Bitcoin friendly country. However, in 2020 Vladimir Putin signed the Russian Digital Financial Asset a.k.a. ‘Crypto’ Bill. This makes bitcoin legal and taxable. However, it also makes it clear that bitcoin is not a form of payment in Russia. Therefore, bitcoin gambling is not regulated. None of the Russian casinos (or even the national lottery) accept bitcoin, litecoin or ethereum. However! One exception! A few of the foreign companies that acquired licenses (you can see them below) accept bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum.

The bitcoin casinos below accepts players from Russia.

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!
