Estonia introduces new gambling affordability checks

The Parliament has adopted a new measure aimed at better regulating Estonia’s gambling industry.

Beginning in August, multiple steps of new affordability checks will be implemented for people who have incurred financial losses of a particular amount.

The pilot program, which is aimed to prevent players who use online casinos or sports betting platforms from getting into financial problems as a result of gambling, will run for six months, beginning on August 30 and will be divided into two phases.

The first level of inspections focuses on “invisible” checks on players who lose £500 per month from gambling. This figure will drop even more to £150 on February 28, 2025.

The second level focuses on players who lose £1,000 in 24 hours or £2,000 in 90 days. Following the six-month experiment, there will be a brief period of evaluation to determine the effectiveness of the pilot project.
