Online Gambling in Greece
Online gambling has been considered legal in Greece since 2011 through Law no. 4002/2011. Yet as of January 2017, there is no secondary regulation and a formal licensing process for online gambling operators in the country. Also the country has still not determined a list of permitted online games which makes this market a rather under regulated one.
