Ukraine Restricts Blackjack Games in an Attempt to Cut Down Problem Gambling

Ukraine is currently taking steps to curb problem gambling and has extended this to impose restrictions on blackjack gaming. The Ukrainian Parliament has proposed to restrict the problem of gambling believing that anything in excess is poison.

The increase in gamblers and blackjack players both online and in land based casinos has got the government worried and hence they have decided to put forth this kind of enforcement to control gambling. People thought to be gambling addicts will be forced into psychiatric hospitals and they will be able to get back their civil rights only if they are able to prove that they are free of this addiction.

In Ukraine, gamblers who spend a lot of time at online casinos or at land based casinos will soon be considered as addicts who jeopardize their financial stability and get themselves and others into trouble. Such players will be considered as violators of a Civil Code.

On one hand, this might be good for the people, but on the other hand it is definitely bad for the people who are involved in the gambling business. While it is surprising that the people have not questioned as to the government restricting them on spending their own money.

Although blackjack and other games are popular in Ukraine, players there do not use much of the blackjack strategy in their games and hence most of them end up losing a lot of money. Players in Ukraine may be better advised to play blackjack online instead of running the risk of being classified as gambling addicts.
