Unfortunately, a good portion of operators swept the rules under the rug and carried on with illegal operations. Failure to comply resulted in hundreds of online casinos being blocked.

Russia battles illegal transactions between operators and its banks

Russia has a backward and forward history when it comes to gambling laws. Online casinos have been outlawed in Russia since 2017 due to an overwhelming amount of unlicensed operators. Internet service providers blocked gambling-related websites in the country, and the government shared plans of using the latest technologies to ensure that players have zero access to online casinos.
