Russia Online Gambling Laws - is Poker Legal?

Only local, licensed operators in remote approved zones can offer gambling. Many popular dot.com sites are blocked following a 2012 Supreme Court ruling.

However Russia is the 4th highest online poker playing population, as players are accepted at all major sites and can access them by VPN.

  • Status of regulation:   In progress
  • Tax on Players:   None
  • Tax on Operators:   None
  • Extra Rake:   None
  • Segregation:   None - Russia players share tables with players in other countries in the same combined playerpool.

Update Jan '15 - UK betting operator Ladbrokes Plc has confirmed that it will no longer accept wagers from Russia, Finland, Portugal and Romania following a 2014 regulatory operational review. - Source

Russia Poker Deposit & Cashout Methods

E-wallets Skrill (formerly Moneybookers) and Neteller are preferred by many grinders as they avoid fees and taxes associated with banks and gambling transactions, and don't require you to share banking information with poker sites.

 
 Skrill Moneybookers Ewallet - Poker
Neteller Ewallet - Poker
Russian Currency - Ruble (RUB)

Is Russia in the PokerStars.com Playerpool?

Yes! Russian players are accepted at PokerStars and are not segregated from the rest of the international PokerStars playerpool (in the way e.g. France, Italy and Spain are). Plan your yearly VPP goals with Rakeback.com's exclusive PokerStars Rakeback Calculator.

Online Poker In Russia - Do I Need a VPN?

Yes. Online poker from foreign providers is restricted in Russia, and as such the internet domains and ISPs of many poker rooms are blocked.

Overplay VPN for Online Poker PlayersIf you are unable to connect to a poker site simply use a cheap VPN service such as StrongVPN or HideMyAss to do so. Site reps have confirmed on the forums that VPNs are not prohibited, with the exception of VPN use to play online from the USA.
