Casinos in Uzbekistan
Back in 2003, when casinos were still legal in Uzbekistan, they could only be run by a certified professional with at least 2 years of similar experience. The gambling halls of the casinos had to contain at least five slot machines and three tables.
However, casinos were later banned with all the other forms of gambling and now local residents wishing to spend an evening in luxurious setting and play a little roulette have only one option: travel abroad.
Online Casinos in Uzbekistan
Just like any other form of gambling online casinos in Uzbekistan are illegal. However, Uzbeks go out of their way to register and play at a variety of online casinos hosted abroad. They are doing so at their own risk, since even that activity if prohibited as well.
Additionally, there is a possibility to enjoy online casino gambling in one of the interactive clubs with computers connected to foreign-based gambling destinations. However, those clubs are illegal too, and the authorities are taking all the necessary steps to finally close them down altogether.
