Kyrgyzstan Outlaws Gambling

The President of Kyrgyzstan has outlawed gambling in his country after the country's lawmakers passed through various bills on the matter through Parliament earlier this year.

Almazbek Atambayev signed the amendments to the Tax Code, Civil Code, and the Civil Code to outlaw gambling in the country, clamping down on gambling. He claims that the moves are necessary to help protect young and compulsive gamblers, while stating that the law will reduce the amount of money laundering and criminal offenses tied to gambling in his country.

It is unknown what kind of economic impact will have on the former Soviet state, but Casino Listings will update this story as we learn more on this topic.
