    The Official National Gaming Office

    Romania is one of the European countries where online casinos are slowly starting to get a proper legal status. Find out which online casinos operate under a Romanian Official National Gaming Office license and how safe it is to play there and in other places.

    Online Casinos Licensed by The Official National Gaming Office

    Like so many European countries, Romania is not yet a place where online gambling is fully available.

    While a law was passed in 2014 making online casinos legal in theory, the fact that the country only allows an online casino to receive a license if they are attached to a local land based casino is very problematic for most European online casinos. As such, many popular international casinos do not yet own a Romanian Official National Gaming Office license.

    About The Official National Gaming Office

    Back in 2014, Romanian government decided to make online gambling legal and put Romanian Official National Gaming Office in charge of issuing online casino licenses. While many casinos would surely want the license, a provision states that an online casino needs to have a land based casino as a sponsor in order to receive this license, making it very difficult for online casinos to receive the license.

    Furthermore, the country has issued a list of over 50 casinos they deem unsafe and called it the black list, even though some of the casinos on this list are perfectly safe and used by customers from all over the world. Over a dozen online casinos now hold the Romanian Official National Gaming Office license.

    The Official National Gaming Office Licensed Online Casinos

    With such a major lack of real Romanian Official National Gaming Office licensed online casinos, players in Romania are forced to play at online casinos that are not licensed by their government.

    A great number of online casinos still continue to cater to Romanian players, while some others have left the market, not wanting to deal with potential legal issues that could arise.

    Safety

    While a license from Romanian Official National Gaming Office would ensure the greatest level of safety for Romanian players, there are many popular online casinos that do not yet own this license.

    Romanian players have the option of playing with either online casinos with the Romanian Official National Gaming Office license or those with other international licenses. For your ultimate safety, playing with a locally regulated online casino is the best choice.
