Parimatch approved for Ukrainian betting licence Daniel O'Boyle, iGaming Business · March 5, 2021 at 1:15 am Parimatch has become the first operator to receive approval for a Ukrainian betting licence, after it received approval for an online casino licence last month. However, the operator must still pay fees before it can operate under the certification. Parimatch’s approval for betting comes after it was granted an online gaming licence in February. Cosmolot operator Spaceiks have also been approved for an online gaming licence. Even though the country’s Gambling Act became law in August, Ukraine’s legislature is still working on a bill to tax the industry. Last week, the country’s Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy approved bill 2713-d, put forward by committee chair Oleg Marusyak, after amending it to set a flat 10% rate for all forms of gambling.
