Russian bookmakers to accept bets on limited list of events

Soon, the State Duma of Russia will consider a new bill, according to which bookmakers will be allowed to accept bets only on certain kinds of competitions and events.


If the offer is approved, Russian betting shops will be able to accept bets on the following events: sports competitions, horse racing, lotteries, dog racing, entertainment events, election results, and foreign referendums.

Besides, the new bill asserts that bookmakers have the right to choose tournaments for betting on their own. Naturally, the choice should be made in accordance with the list of above-mentioned events.

Bill authors, members of the United Russia party, believe that it will allow to improve legal regulation of betting shop operations, as well as to protect interests of all parties.


We would like to recall that the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia has submitted an offer to prohibit betting on the results of competitions for children and young people. Authors of the idea say that junior athletes psychology is not quite steady, thus there is an increased risk of organizing fixed matches involving them.
