Domestic Casino Niche: Key Facts

In August 2020, the government permitted games for money in the country, allowing all types of digital and offline gambling services. Land-based and online casinos, betting shops, poker clubs, and establishments with slot machines have started opening throughout Ukraine.

The main objectives of law No. 768-IX of August 13, 2020:

  • withdrawal of the casino business from the shadows and fight against unlicensed operators;
  • increase in revenues to the budget;
  • attraction of investments in the economies and development of related industries;
  • fight against ludomania and adherence to the principle of responsible gambling.

According to the plan, the state budget of Ukraine should be replenished by 7.6 billion hryvnias by the end of 2022. This is mainly the cost of issued licences and tax revenues.

Key information about the Ukrainian market:

  • Permits are issued by the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries.
  • At the end of 2021, the largest amount of income was received from the sale of licences for land-based casinos (26.8%), online locations (22.7%), gaming halls (10.1%), and betting shops (8.1%). In 2022, it is expected that this ratio will remain the same.
  • 28 gambling brands are registered in Ukraine. The largest part of ​​casinos and establishments with slot machines (63.1%) belongs to 3 large companies.
  • Kyiv became the leader among the cities in terms of the number of available gambling facilities. There are 14 locations in the capital, 7 in Lviv, 6 in Kharkiv, and 5 in Odesa.
  • In the fall of 2021, the Verkhovna Rada adopted bill No. 2713-d on amendments to the tax code of Ukraine. Thus, entrepreneurs must pay 10% of the gross gaming revenue (the sum placed by users in the form of bets minus their winnings) and 18% of net profit.
  • The launch of an online system aimed at monitoring the operators' activity is scheduled for 2022. Special software will control the gambling market in real-time. It will include such aspects as the legality of advertising, the completeness of payment of winnings, and the timely deduction of taxes.

Industries Stimulated by the Gambling Sphere

Gambling industry: related sectors

Experts believe that by the end of 2022, the total economic effect of the legalisation of the casino market will be estimated at 30 billion hryvnias.

Let us consider the areas that will demonstrate stable growth along with the gambling niche:

Consulting

To obtain a licence and launch a casino project, deep knowledge of Ukrainian legislation is required. Therefore, entrepreneurs will need the assistance of experienced lawyers and business consultants. They will help with the preparation of documents and the opening of a legal gambling location.

In the coming years, the consulting sector will actively develop thanks to both domestic operators and foreign brands

Recruiting

Offline casinos and iGaming projects need professional dealers, croupiers, administrators, technical support staff, and other specialists. In this regard, legal business owners invest in the search and training of personnel, as well as interact with HR agencies and coaches.

One of the best options is to independently train qualified staff who will be loyal to the company for many years

Rent and renovation of premises

Land-based operators are actively investing in the construction of new gambling facilities and the renovation of old premises. These are mainly 4 and 5-star hotels, recreation areas, as well as shopping and entertainment centres.

A commercial real estate lease is also waiting for a new level in development. It is expected that the most popular ones will be large premises (from 100 square metres), which used to be classified as illiquid objects

Production and maintenance of equipment

Entrepreneurs need to buy both specific (slot and betting machines, lottery terminals) and standard equipment (computers, laptops, video surveillance systems, cash registers, and settlement terminals).

The sector of equipment maintenance will also benefit. These are certification and repair of objects, software support, and other related services

Investments in the IT sphere

Ukrainian developers are considered one of the best in the world. Domestic and foreign operators gladly order the creation of gambling programs and support services.

As a rule, large companies establish their IT departments, while small businesses delegate to outsourcing agencies the task of elaborating software products

Legitimate Advertising of Gambling Entertainment

Casino game advertising: legal nuances

With the legalisation of casino solutions, investments in PR and marketing have increased. Agencies get huge contracts, and the industry becomes one of the main advertisers in the country, along with such businesses as household appliances and consumer products selling.

It is worth noting that only socially responsible advertising is allowed in Ukraine. Thus, for example, marketing activities should not be directed at minors, and the placement of banners is prohibited near schools, kindergartens, hospitals, and children's clubs.

In December 2021, 11 Ukrainian licensed operators signed the UGC Memorandum on Responsible Casino Entertainment Advertising.

The main points of the document:

  1. Gambling popularisation is prohibited on radio, cable, IP and online television, as well as with the participation of photo models under the age of 21.
  2. Promotional videos cannot depict the gameplay (imitation of the rotation of a roulette wheel or reels of the slot, placement of bets, and the user who is holding chips in his hand).
  3. Hyperlinks (QR codes) must not be applied to promotional materials (brochures, posters, internet banners).
  4. The name of the casino operator and its corporate attributes should not occupy more than 40% of the layout.

As we can see, legal operators adhere to the principles of socially responsible advertising, which should not be aimed at vulnerable segments of the population (children, low-income and incapacitated persons).

Legitimate advertising has a tangible economic effect:

  1. Signing sponsorship contracts. The trend can be clearly seen in the betting sector where major bookmakers actively support national football, basketball, and tennis federations. Companies finance teams and athletes and also act as title sponsors at exhibition tournaments.
  2. Charity. These are key measures aimed at interacting with vulnerable segments of the population, including the financing of relief funds. It helps to show the value of the gaming industry and create its positive image.

The Main Things about the Gambling Business in Ukraine

In 2020, the Verkhovna Rada legalised casino entertainment in the country.
