Bulgaria moves a step closer to regulated online gambling

Bulgarian legislators from the country’s three-way governing coalition have agreed to regulatory amendments that will pave the way for licensed and regulated online gambling, reports Sofia News.

Three way coalition agrees to gambling legislative amendments. An agreement was reached on the new approach during a two day closed debate held in the resort town of Hisarya.

The structural plan of the country’s state lottery will also be changed to expand the distribution network, with more companies allowed to sell tickets. The amendments aim at increasing the income of the state lottery.

The extra money gained will be allocated to social campaigns, officials said.
