Just over one month ago, Estonia legalized online gambling. A two-stage plan was revealed in early January that is slowly making changes to Estonian gambling laws, eventually ending in the complete legalization of internet gambling across the country.
Phase one of Estonia’s legalization of online gambling is currently underway, and just days ago players saw the launch of the first fully-licensed online casino in Estonia. The site obtained its license to operate on January 21st, after passing rigorous software testing and examinations from Estonia’s regulatory committee. The new site is operated by the Olympic Entertainment Group, which also operates land-based casinos in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Romania, Poland and Slovakia.
