Georgia to tighten the gambling legislation

Previously, we wrote about the new gambling legislation in Georgia which will come into force when 2018 state budget is passed. There is additional information on gambling regulation in the country.

As already mentioned access to gambling establishments and online resources will be completely banned for minors and compulsive gamblers. The age limit will be 21 years for citizens of Georgia, and 18 years for foreigners. The plan is to launch a special electronic database for compulsive gamblers.

The list will be based on applications of citizens made on their own initiative, as well as on court orders. A person will stay in database for three years. It will be necessary to prove that the individual is experiencing an irresistible craving for gambling or prize games for the court to recognize the addiction.

For the first violation, casinos and sweepstakes will face a fine of about $ 2 000, and almost $ 4 000 for a repeat violation.
