Online casinos that have been approved have had their systems thoroughly tested by the authorities and these checks are continued throughout the lifetime of the license. The Gambling Business Monitoring Center plays a key role in this process. All gambling operators are required to cooperate with the center and all data on players and financial transactions will need to be registered. There is a strict process for approving online casinos for their license and companies must adhere to this otherwise they cannot legally trade.
One of the restrictions in place for online casinos is the use of cryptocurrencies. This is not yet legal in Belarus, although people are permitted to trade in cryptocurrencies.
So far, a number of online casinos have been able to obtain an online gambling license. The authorities, while being quite strict with their regulations, recognize that this is a good source of income for them and are keen to encourage the industry to develop further. The restrictions are aimed at companies already established in Belarus so it is not possible for foreign companies to make an application and then start trading there.
