Belarus Online Gaming

Online gambling, with the exception of lottery ticket sales, is forbidden in Belarus. However, in 2014 Belarus began plans to launch its own state-run online gaming portal, in addition to regulating and taxing operators whose servers are based in Belarus. The government hoped to pass legislation in 2015.

In January 2012, a new law made it illegal for the citizens of Belarus to access any foreign websites or any site not hosted on a .by domain. Businesses and individuals cannot provide services through domains not registered in Belarus and owners of internet cafés or similar facilities can face charges if internet access is not monitored and reported for violations of the law. Users of internet cafés are required to identify themselves, and records of their computer usage are kept for one year. The law goes as far as to monitor individuals with guests in their homes who may log on a foreign website while visiting – the owner is bound by law to report it or face charges. Internet service providers are required to register with the Ministry of Communications and Information. ISPs are to provide details of their network, systems and information resources and disclose all devices connected to the network such as computers and mobile phones. The Belarus tax authorities, police and secret police will be responsible for investigating and prosecuting offenders of the new law.
