More about the Institute for Gambling Regulation (IFGR)

The platform brings together the majority of legal gambling operators in the Czech Republic, testing laboratories and game systems and games manufacturers. It currently has 31 members, including 4 partner associations, through which other operators are members. The most important Czech operators and manufacturers such as Tipsport, Fortuna, E-gamming, Kajot, Apollo, as well as foreign manufacturers and testing laboratories such as Microgaming, GLI, and BMM are among its members today.

The primary objective of the IFGR is to participate in the conceptual development of gambling operation in the Czech Republic and to become a respected partner of a regulator and other public authorities that are active in the field of gambling for expert discussion during the creation of regulation. The Deputy Finance Minister, responsible for gambling regulation, took part in the IFGR’s founding meeting and endorsed this idea.

The main means of achieving this goal will be not only participation in planned regular meetings with a regulator’s representatives, but also the IFGR’s participation during the development of gambling legislation, interpretative statement, methodologies, standards, and preparation of analyses and studies on the assessment of impacts of gambling regulation.

IFGR has been given the status of a comment place of relevant ministries and authorities in the process of drafting new legislation in this field.

Any gambling operation license holder in the Czech Republic, a testing laboratory with authorization for expert assessment from the Ministry of Finance and game systems and games manufacturer can become a member.

The platform is divided into five sections according to its focus, namely Lotteries, Fixed-odds Betting, Technical and Live Game, Authorized Persons, and Game Systems Manufacturers.

The sections are headed by their managers, most of whom are former officials of a Czech regulator. The Director of the IFGR is Jan Řehola, former director of the Gambling Regulation Division, the managers of the sections are Václav Ulrich, former deputy head of the Licensing Procedure, and Petra Razím Ďurovičová, former head of the Administrative Procedure Department.

IFGR has an established website (www.iprh.cz). The advantage of membership is, among other things, the private part of the website, where members can find materials on the issues currently addressed, the Newsletter, summarizing information on the statements published by the Ministry of Finance and by the Customs Administration, FAQs, minutes of meetings and other material.

Members can also use the current very popular method of training, that is webinars, on topics currently addressed.

IFGR organizes quarterly meetings of the individual sections to discuss current gambling issues.

Make sure that you are among the delegates of CEEGC Budapest this year for a new and engaging format that is going to increase the engagement and interaction of the attending delegates.
