Online gambling license regime in Bulgaria

When we talked about Internet gambling license will soon be available in Bulgaria, we thought the Parliament will pass the bill really quickly because of the big interest, the real gambling companies have in Bulgaria. Now, as some of the comments pointed right, companies holding non-EU gambling license don't care about getting an EU one, because they can operate on-line virtually anywhere.

We can see some "non-gambling" websites which offer free poker games, but they also offer paid membership where you can actually gamble. It appears the Gambling Commission is unable to sanction them, or at least nobody urged them to.

The fact is that the bill is still pending for discussion in the Financial Parliament Commission since 2009. Apparently it will be there for another couple of years.
