Mongolia Casino and Gambling Guide

 

Mongolia is a landlocked country located in east-central Asia. the country shares borders with Russia to the north and China to the south, east, and west. The capital and largest city of Mongolia is Ulaanbaatar, home to 45% of the population.

The territory which is now known as Mongolia has been ruled by various nomadic empires like the Xiongnu, the Xianbei, the Rouran, and the Turkic Khaganate amongst others. Genghis Khan founded the famous Mongol Empire in 1206 and his grandson Kublai Khan conquered China to establish the Yuan dynasty. After the Yuan dynasty’s collapse, the Mongols retreated to Mongolia and fell into factional conflicts like in their earlier history. In the 16th century, Buddhism began to spread across the country. By the early 1900s, almost one-third of the population was Buddhist monks.* Other minor religious groups in the country are Islamic (3%) and Shamanistic (4%). Mongolia became a soviet satellite state in the 1920s as the Mongolian People’s Republic. After the anti-communist revolutions of 1989, Mongolia conducted its own peaceful transition to a democratic system in early 1990. This led to a multi-party system, a new constitution in 1992, and a transition to a market economy.

Mongolia is the 19th largest and second largest landlocked country of the world. The country’s territory is mostly covered by grassy steppe. Mongolia is one of the most sparsely populated independent countries of the world with a population of roughly 3 million. The horse culture is still integral as 30% of the population lives a nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyle.

Gambling in Mongolia is illegal (except for the lottery). There was a short period of time in the late 90s when the government passed a bill that allowed slot machines to operate in the country. This led to many families losing everything due to gambling addiction, so slot machines were banned. However, there are plans to legalize casino business to attract foreign players (mostly from China and Russia) but it is still in a development phase.* Despite these plans, gambling is still illegal in Mongolia but online gambling is not regulated.
