Casino Gaming and Casinos in Romania
Romania is a country that is well known for its tourism industry, thanks to the rich history and scenery of the country. This Eastern European country is also home to a number of land-based casinos which are located throughout Romania; however, a large proportion of these casinos can be found in the Romanian capital of Bucharest.
Up until recent years, the casino gaming industry in Romania was strictly governed and restricted by governmental laws. In 2015, the Romanian parliament changed its laws regarding casino gaming, and Romania opened its national casino market to international casino operators and investors for the first time.
This move has made Romania an attractive destination for local and international visitors who wish to play at casinos in Romania.
