Poker in Uzbekistan
Before the total ban on gambling in Uzbekistan, poker was considered to be the most popular game in the country.
Currently Uzbek poker enthusiasts have no way of practicing their game other than play at home or travel abroad.
Online Poker in Uzbekistan
Similarly to online casinos, the only way to play online poker in Uzbekistan is for locals to seek access to foreign-based online poker rooms. This can be done either at home or at the diminishing number of interactive clubs.
However, the activity is illegal, so Uzbeks are exercising great caution in doing so.
Contrary to the current politics, where all gambling is banned, Uzbek government is contemplating a move to allow online poker. In case such law change does occur, Uzbeks will finally receive an outlet for at least one gambling activity.
