Online Gambling in Macedonia
It is reported that online gambling is extremely popular in Macedonia, especially of those under 25. The government has recently unveiled plans to create a monopoly on online gambling services. The state is to own a 51 percent share in the new company.
The new service should open in 2014 offering games like poker, sports betting and a video lottery among other games. The government also announced it will block access to all other online providers. Some providers like Bodog and Partypoker have already left Macedonia.
