The gambling industry of Ukraine is focused on foreign tourists and wealthy Ukrainians, said Ivan Rudy, head of the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries. He noted that gambling establishments are not created specifically for an ordinary Ukrainian to leave his salary in them. Rudy also drew attention to the positive effect that the gambling business provides. For example, a casino in a five-star hotel provides 150 jobs – and they are occupied by those Ukrainians who earlier – due to the fact that gambling was banned in Ukraine – were forced to work in foreign gambling establishments, the official explained. My Lucky Story has published information that the Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries of Ukraine has previously issued a license for an online casino to Alfagame. As reported, three hotels – in Kyiv and Kharkov – received permission from the Ukrainian authorities to host gambling establishments in their premises. As a reminder, CRAIL issued a license to Billionare Casino Company LLC for a land-based casino in the Kiev InterContinental Hotel.
