Gambling in Slovakia
The Act No 171/2005 on Gambling Games from 2005 and its future amendments make legal all sorts of online and land based gambling in Slovakia. The body which is authorized to oversee the lawful implementation of this act is the Ministry of Finance. They are official regulators of both the land based as well as online gambling in Slovakia.
As of January 2017, however, there are 8 casinos scattered across the country, along with several different lotteries and bookmakers. Mostpopular form of gambling in the country is sports betting as there are several hundred betting shops to be found in towns and cities across Slovakia.
Online Gambling in Slovakia
Online gambling in Slovakia is a different story, unfortunately. While online gambling is technically legal, the Slovakian government has not granted any licenses to operators, meaning that the country does not have its own online casino, sportsbook, poker site, or bingo sites.
