Bulgaria's three-way ruling coalition is to allow the online gambling through introducing some amendments in the law they agreed on at the two-day closed debates held in the resort town of Hisarya.

The structural plan of the country's state lottery will also be changed to result in expanding the distributing network - more companies will be allowed to sell tickets but not only the now existing stations.

The amendments aim at increasing the incomes from the state lottery. The extra money gained will be allocated to social campaigns, officials said.

Among the other decisions made during the coalition's council sitting is the launching of the construction of a new sport hall in the capital city of Sofia.

The project will be financed by the state budget but the site has not been determined yet.
