In this article, Smart Money experts offer you to find out how the basic and probably the most important standards of secure and honest gaming are implemented in Ukraine.
We will talk in more detail about the available tools for protecting players and project owners and the benefits of the security solution installation.
In July 2020, Ukrainian deputies legalised casino games, thus allowing entrepreneurs to open offline and virtual locations.
Law №768-IX is focused on responsible gaming and assistance to socially vulnerable members of the population.
Several categories of people cannot get access to offline venues and internet platforms:
Hardware vendors must certify branded products, and operators must use only proven equipment and solutions. Great attention is also paid to ethical marketing in order to avoid unfair advertising in the industry.
In November 2021, the Verkhovna Rada approved the bill №2713-D in the first reading.
The main objectives of the document are:
Thus, for example, for allowing a person to enter a casino without identification, entrepreneurs will have to pay about 3 million hryvnias. The repeated violation will lead to the revocation of a permit.
Law №768-IX provides for the formation of the specially authorised body that is responsible for the issuance and prolongation of licences, development of requirements for the industry, and monitoring the activities of casino owners and bookmakers.
In September 2021, the commission published a legal act that approved the standards of safe gaming.
Mikhail Koval, head of the working group of the Advisory and Expert Council, said:
Basically, we investigated the legislation of different countries and applied the successful European experience. Moreover, we have implemented several practical points.
Let us consider the basic principles:
Guarantee of the registration
The identity of players is verified every time they visit online or offline locations
Restriction on participation in casino games
Entrepreneurs can set the following limits: on the maximum size of a deposit or a spin, the duration of the session, and the number of hours played per day/week/month
The lack of motivation to lose in a game
Operators are not allowed to offer bonuses for losing: cashback, loyalty points, one-time payments, and other types of rewards
Prevention of ludomania
Project owners must propose comprehensive data on the risks related to gambling, including the progression of such a disease as ludomania and other mental and physiological disorders
Self-control and self-restraint
Punters and their family members can add themselves or their relatives to the register of self-limited people for a period of 6 months to 3 years
Informing the user
All rules related to gambling must be provided in 2 languages — Ukrainian and English
Awareness of staff
Casino staff must know Ukrainian laws and be able to identify people with signs of ludomania (based on their behaviour and by checking open registries of users)
Entrepreneurs should carry out explanatory work in order to minimise the negative impact on the population.
It is possible to interact with medical centres, charitable foundations, and non-profit social organisations
According to Ukrainian legislation, user authentication takes place in 2 stages.
It is held when players visit the location for the first time.
Thus, in land-based clubs, it is enough to show the original passport, ID, or another identification document. After that, clients receive a personal card with elements for the secure and automatic scanning of their unique number.
During verification that takes place on gaming sites, several modern technologies are used:
During the first registration of the gaming site, entrepreneurs are obliged to issue individual cards (electronic or plastic ones) with a unique number and give it to their clients.
With each following visit to the institution or website, users enter the card number in the registration form. The system automatically checks them, provides access to the casino, and enters current indicators (entry time, IP address, the duration of a visit to the platform, etc.).
