Turkey bans online gaming

On 1 March, the Turkish government gave its final approval to a law, which reinforces the existing restrictions on gambling, notably by explicitly forbidding any unauthorised domestic or foreign company from offering online gaming services to citizens in Turkey.

The law will impose fines and up to five years imprisonment to anyone involved in enabling access, promotion or operation of sites offering egaming products to Turkish nationals.entitled.
