In 2019 the government of Turkey had launched one of its largest nationwide crackdowns on online gambling followed by simultaneous raids across 40 provinces. Turkey’s increasing hostility toward online gambling has led to a focus on the funding of gambling activities via alternate modes of payment.
Turkey has seen a lot of growth in online betting and gambling over the years, with more and more people having easy access to 4G technology. The government has begun its crackdown on illegal betting by banning online gaming websites.
With “illegal bets and games of chance” treated as “crimes under the draft legislation being proposed in the Turkish parliament,” according to Turkey’s Financial Crimes Investigation Board (MASAK) chairman Hayrettin Kurt, Games like Hall of Gods are still illegal in Turkey.
As we mentioned the crackdown on online gambling earlier, there have been new rules proposed. Based on these new rules:
Players who believe their activities can’t be tracked should know that their digital footprints are being followed by the state with huge fines imposed by the Turkish courts. All of the unregistered websites, national and international alike, will be blocked by the Information Technologies and Communications, as part of the crackdown.
