The Law of the Republic of Armenia (‘RA’) regulates online games of chance, which includes provisions on the licensing procedures, state duty and a long list of restrictions. Such requirements relating to online gambling have however only been adopted very recently and to some extent the approaches may be argued to be ambiguous and strict. Dr Aram Orbelyan and Lilit Karapetyan of Concern Dialog law firm outline in this article the general approach to games of chance and casinos under the legislation of the RA and the recent legislative amendments, namely the determination of an increased rate of state duty and the creation of a wager registry. Finally, Aram and Lilit reflect on the issue of online gambling advertising, which presumably has been omitted from the legislative amendments.
