Kazakhstani tenge (KZT) is the currency of the Republic of Kazakhstan that was introduced in 1993. The word “tenge” is consonant with the name of medieval Turkic silver coins. In Kazakh and most other Turkic languages, it means a set of scales. Previously, Uzbek and Tajik money was also called “tenga” and “tanga” respectively. All these words originate from the Mongolic word “teng” which means being equal or balanced.
Kazakh gambling laws are not extremely harsh and even focused on gamblers’ safety. For example, recent amendments to the Kazakh Law about Gambling Business are, in particular, about helping gambling addicts. Moreover, offline sports betting is fully legalized in the country, and there are also legal land-based casinos located in special gambling resorts. Unfortunately, electronic casinos and betting shops are prohibited in Kazakhstan, but players are not prosecuted. Kazakh online gambling market is not large, but there are still some reliable KZT online casinos. So, KZT gamblers can deposit and withdraw the tenge in a number of trusted online casinos & betting shops.
