Ukraine’s Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries (KRAIL) has included restrictions on bonuses in its responsible gambling provisions.
Ukraine.- The Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries (KRAIL), the regulatory body overseeing the new Ukrainian gambling market, has published its first responsible gambling provisions.
They include a prohibition of bonuses that depend on player losses. The provision bans operators from offering existing customers “any bonus payments and/or goods or services through incentives, the provision of which is directly or indirectly due to the losses of a player in a certain game”.
Operators will be unable to offer players bonuses because they have lost money. Other provisions include obligations for players to be able to self-exclude from gaming, set deposit limits and view how much time they have spent gambling.
The rules also state that operators must train staff to identify possible signs of problem gambling.
Ukraine to decide on gambling tax rate
A bill that sets a flat tax rate of 10 per cent for all verticals has reached a second reading.
The bill is an amended version of Bill 2713-d, which was put forward by Oleg Marusyak around the time that Ukraine legalised gambling last August.
