CMS Expert Guide to gambling laws in CEE


The gambling sector is constantly evolving across CEE, inducing regulatory changes that help shape and redesign the industry. CMS is delighted to introduce this new comprehensive expert guide, The CEE Guide to Gambling Laws, to explore the legal landscape of gambling and give key-contact expert advice about gambling law regulation and changes.

Gambling regulation – opportunities and challenges

The liberalisation of gambling regulations is creating new opportunities in some jurisdictions, while others are enhancing legislative control to narrow the legal path for manoeuvrability in the business. Our CMS gambling law experts across the region have thorough knowledge of the sector to support our clients in every step they take in the gambling industry’s volatile legal environment.

This Guide focuses on the key aspects of gambling in CEE, such as:

  • the regulatory framework
  • structuring and corporate governance
  • licensing, compliance, data protection
  • currency control and other cross border issues
  • marketing and advertising
  • tax

The gambling law and regulation guide covers Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine.
