In the initial version of the law, it was assumed that it would be possible to place a casino only in 5-star hotels (for Kyiv – with a room fund of at least 150 rooms, for other settlements – at least 100 rooms). Now this list has been expanded and it also includes the territory of suburban complexes (with a total area of at least 10 thousand square meters, consisting of two or more buildings, among which there must be a five-star hotel) and territories inside special territorial gambling zones.
Such special zones will be created by the Cabinet of Ministers outside the populated areas or inside them, but outside the residential areas or in the economically backward areas. In Ukraine, they plan to create no more than five such special zones.
Gaming machines can be accommodated in 3.4 and 5-star hotels (the minimum number of rooms for Kyiv is at least 50, for other settlements – 25). The license is granted for 250 machines, in one hall there must be at least 50.
Bookmaker activity will be allowed both on the Internet and at ground points. However, such points can only be accommodated in 3,4,5-star hotels and at the racetrack.
Bets can be placed solely on real events, on virtual ones – a ban.
