Online Gambling in Russia + Casinos List
Russia is a country that has seen rapid changes in the past few years. When it comes to gambling, this includes both online and offline gambling. In 2014, Russia banned all online casinos and poker websites due to an increase in addiction rates among their population.
Therefore, all online gambling activities are banned except for sports betting. Sport betting sites must obtain a gambling license from the local authorities.
When it comes to land-based casinos, you can place few bets offline only in special territories (such as Sochi).
