Ukraine Proposes Bank Loan Bans For Excluded Gamblers

Ukraine's Committee of the Verkhovna Rada on Finance, Tax, and Customs Policy has proposed a change to gambling rules that would stop banks from issuing loans to gamblers who've self-excluded from betting in the country.

The proposed change would expand the number of checks that banks are required to conduct when issuing loans, albeit with the idea of protecting players who may take out debt to fuel their addictions. According to the verbiage of the proposal, there wouldn't be exceptions available to made for credit agreements.

There have been 687 people who've registered for the self-exclusion service in the country.

The move is the latest proposed gambling change in Ukraine, which has been working on a number of regulations that would penalise gambling companies who've got Russian ties or do business with Russia, amid the ongoing conflict between the two countries.

The proposed change needs approval before it can be implemented, and Casino Listings News will update readers as appropriate.
