Budapest – 25 June 2018 – Europe’s online gambling market has seen many changes lately, especially when it comes to regulation. While being split up regions, everyone has reported growth when it comes to regulating the online gaming industry.

The fast growth of the sector is also thanks to the technology servicing the sector, which has become more sophisticated and the general demand for online services, including betting and gaming ones, keeps growing.

Such is the case of the Czech gambling market, which has been regulated just a while ago and has already seen the benefits of having large software providers and international operators entering the sector and adding to tax incomes for the state.

Just recently, Gaming provider, Play’n GO, has signed a multi-year arrangement with PokerStars Casino.  Owned by The Stars Group, PokerStars will gain access to Play’n Go’s complete portfolio of games directly integrated onto its platform, via the terms of the partnership. The move demonstrates the brand’s interest expanding its slot offering to additional markets, and also follows up its entry into the sporting industry having gone live in Czech Republic in a deal with Tipsport at the start of the year.

Forty billion crowns spent on Czech gambling in 2017

People in the Czech Republic spent 39.8 billion crowns on gambling in 2017, which is half a billion more than the previous year, national drug coordinator Jindrich Voboril said on Tuesday.

One third of the sum was spent on online gambling, while it was only 3 percent in 2009. “Thanks to the technological development, the increase in enormous. The risk is that younger and younger generations gamble. It is more available,” Voboril said.

The integral report and more government statements can be found by reading the report given by Prague Daily Monitor.

The Czech Republic’s gambling industry report will be presented by expert, Jan Rehola, who always presents the vital information around the market.
