Unlicensed operators remain in Czech Republic despite new laws

2017-01-24 13:58:08

As of January 1, operators wishing to offer gambling services in the county must first obtain a licence or face prosecution from the national regulator and police.

Companies also face tighter licensing processes, in addition to a new tax rate of 23% on gross gaming revenue for sports betting and lotteries and 35% for RNG casino games, on top of a standard 19% corporate tax rate.

However, despite the new laws, the website has reported that some companies are still offering gambling services without a licence.
