Romania imposes strict gambling restrictions

New gambling regulations have been implemented in Romania for small communities with fewer than 15,000 residents.

In these regions, slot machines have been outlawed and casinos have been shut down. Although this move has generated debate, those who oppose gambling have also spoken out in favor of it.

After a period of inactivity, the parliament swiftly passed the new regulations. Unusually for Romania, all major parties came to the same conclusion on these reforms.

Even with the overwhelming support, there are apprehensions regarding potential cooperation between government authorities and gambling representatives. There is a growing need for increased process transparency. The new regulations require that businesses wishing to install slot machines must be located in communities with less than 15,000 residents and possess a town hall certificate. In addition, the law forbids offering gambling services to unlicensed operators and has safeguards against unlawful access to online gambling.

Every day, the National Gambling Office will update its public registry, which will include all regulated operators in the nation. In a period of ninety days, the ONJN president will decide on the precise technical specifications of these new regulations.

The National Gambling Office recently appointed a celebrity hairdresser Cristian-Gabriel Pascu as vice president, a move that sparked criticism. Romania also revealed plans to increase fees and tighten regulations for gambling operators.
