Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Tourism and Sports plans to tighten the rules for public access to gambling venues. In response to President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev’s call for change, Vice Minister Yerzhan Erkinbayev will be publishing recommendations to protect against gambling-related issues.

One proposal is to raise the minimum gambling age from 21 to 35, with Erkinbayev highlighting the importance of addressing gambling addiction among Kazakh youth. The Ministry also recommends implementing administrative measures to prevent underage individuals from entering gambling venues, and enforcing criminal liability for venues that serve underage customers.

In addition, the Ministry suggests imposing financial restrictions on those with overdue loans or financial obligations, and calls for the creation of a comprehensive gambling law, as the current regulations are limited and outdated.

These recommendations are subject to review by the President, with the hope of creating a stricter framework to govern gambling in Kazakhstan.
