news thumbnail image

The Ukrainian Gaming Week 2021 starting in February sets the tone for the new market with over 3,000 expected attendees.

Gambling is an activity enjoyed for entertainment in online and offline formats by people all over the world. Regulatory bodies and laws have not always been so friendly or open towards this activity despite the popularity.

In many regions, it's been banned for years, with regulatory changes only being implemented recently.

For Ukraine, 2020 was a big year with the 11-year gambling ban being broken and gambling being re-legalised in August.

On the 11th of August, Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, signed bill 2285-d into law which came into effect on the 13th of August.

A quick rise in global ranks

Despite its legalisation only taking place mere months ago, Ukraine is showing an eagerness to grow and develop their new and legal gambling industry.

One of the biggest indicators being the Ukrainian Gaming Week 2021 event, hosted in the region from the 24th to the 25th of February 2021.
