Aleksey Evchenko, the adviser on tourism at the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, is a new speaker of Ukrainian Gaming Congress, which will be held on September 29, 2015. He is also the founder and director of ArtBuild Hotel Group. More details here….
Within his speech at Ukrainian Gaming Congress, the expert will talk about the structure of the Ukrainian gaming industry after its legalization, expectations from the new law and its effect on the tourist image of the country. In particular, Aleksey Evchenko will talk about the possibility to attract tourists and players to Ukraine from all over the world and factors that can repackage the image of the country and as well as about the chance to turn the country into an interesting investment project in the terms of gambling and other spheres.
It is worth noting that Aleksey Evchenko gladly agreed to give an interview to Ukrainian Gaming Congress’ website. The full version of his interview can be found by clicking on this link.
In his interview, Aleksey Evchenko points to the fact that the legalization of gambling across the country will benefit the tourism industry. The expert has explained that this will ensure the flow of a certain category of tourists who visited the Ukrainian gambling establishments before their prohibition in 2009.
According to Evchenko, the provisions being prescribed in the draft law, such as a requirement to locate casinos in 4-5 star hotels, are not final, because the regulatory legal act is being finalized. He has also said that the possibility of permission to open casinos in separate buildings outside the hotels is also considering. However, requirements to such premises can be very tough.
It is difficult to predict the amount of income to the budget of Ukraine from gambling before the industry legalization, according to the expert. Everything depends on the taxation schemes and licensing. These factors will affect the number of casinos that will open during the first year after the legalization of casinos and, consequently, the amount of tax revenue for the period. According to Evchenko, there will be up to 100 casinos. With regard to replenishment of the treasury by means of taxes in the gaming sector, the state’s task is to receive about UAH 3 million within the first year of the casino operation.
At Ukrainian Gaming Congress, Aleksey Evchenko will inform the participants about the details of the provisions, which are currently contained in the draft law, and about the progress of work on them, as well as will announce the expectations of the tourism industry representatives from the legalization of casinos.

The gambling industry in France, un problème historique
The link between France and gambling always has been strong and could even be described as historic.
The country largely contributed to the development of gambling through time with the creation of inescapable games such as roulette (by the mathematician Blaise Pascal) and the 52 card game which gave birth to Baccarat or Shimmy (also known as Chernay).
As a consequence, it feels natural for gambling to be legal in France. But to settle on this territory, you must have a license from by several organisations:
• for betting activities: Pari Mutuel Hippodrome (PMH) and Pari Mutuel Urbain(PMU);
• for bingo lotteries and sports betting, only the Française des Jeux (FDJ) keeps the monopoly on land base activities.
Some conditions must however be respected if you want to offer gambling activities in France. For example, physical casinos can only be established in seaside and tourist towns (except Paris) and on some cruise ships with the French flag.
Since 2010, online gambling is regulated by the Autorité de Régulation des Jeux en Ligne (ARJEL), which can authorise licenses for club games (until now, only the poker is allowed), sports betting and horse races. Online casino games are forbidden in France.
Fifteen licenses have been issued by the ARJEL so far. This particularly low number of licenses can be explained by high tax rates which can frighten some operators.
However, the market is doing well as the third quarter of 2017 results show: an increase by 23% of the revenues linked to sports betting despite a year without international competition, a 10% growth of horse racing revenues and +5% for poker.
France is a market which needs to be followed especially as online casinos should be authorised very soon. The 2018 Football World Cup, with a French team considered as favorite for this new edition, should also contribute to the sector’s success thanks to high sports betting revenues.
On October 16, 2018, the inaugural European Gaming Congress in Ljubljana is set to host a panel where the state of France will be discussed directly with the regulator. To find out more details about the event make sure you follow our news.
