Gambling and online gambling guide to Croatia

 

Gambling is legal in Croatia and regulated by the 2014 gambling law ‘Zakon o igrama na sreću’. According to this law, gambling constitutes players betting on an outcome that is decided mainly by chance with hope of gaining money, goods, services or rights.*

This gambling act divides gambling into 4 categories:

  • lottery games (including bingo),
  • games of chance with instant win (instant lottery, scratchcards, casino games),
  • sports betting,
  • and slot machines (includes video poker machines as well).

All of these forms of gambling are legal and regulated in Croatia. Operators require a license from the Ministry of Finance.

Online gambling is also legal since 2010.The legal status of online gambling had been somewhat confusing in the begygining, but with the 2014 gambling law the regulation is now clear, though not to everyone’s liking.

In accordance with the current gambling legislation online gambling operators who wish to offer their services on the Croatian market must apply for an online gambling licence from the Ministry of Finance, and pay the associated fee of HRK 3 000 000 (about $500 000, annually!) and have enough in reserves (also HRK 3 million) at all times to pay player’s winnings.** The fee and the reserve is what incited protests from gambling operators, as they deemed them to be unreasonably high (and compared to countries in the vicinity it is, it hasn’t changed tough, it was not lowered since 2014). Also, you have to operate a land-based casino as well to get an online casino gambling licence, which was seen as discriminatory by many purely online gambling companies.

The gambling tax in Croatia is tax imposed on operators: 5% for lottery ticket sales, 5% of the betting turnover, 15% from casino and 25% from slots. Also the winnings of the payers are also taxed. All winnings under 10,000 Kuna (€1,300) are subject to a 10% tax. There is a 15% tax on winnings between 10,000 and 30,000 Kuna (€4,000), and any winnings above 30,000 Kuna are subject to a 20% tax. Anything above 500,000 Kuna (€65,000) is taxed at a rate of 30%. As you can see the licensing fees and taxes are astronomical in Croatia, and this is on top of regular corporate tax and other taxes all business must pay. The gambling taxes and fees are the highest here in the Balkan region.

There are, however, good news for Croatian gamblers as well: the government has decided not to seal off the online gambling market (as,e.g.: France did), but to allow players to play against other “open gambling” countries (this is most important when it comes to poker and progressive jackpots and tournaments). Croatian players have many online casino to choose from (see below) and right now even unlicensed online gambling websites are not blocked..

Casino gambling in Croatia

 

Online casino gambling in Croatia: legal, requires licence

 

Casino gambling is legal in Croatia. Companies who wish to open a casino must apply for a gambling licence and pay the associated fee (note that this is different from the online casino gambling licence). Despite the crushing fees and taxes there are currently about 20 proper, big casinos in Croatia. And there are also a hundred smaller gambling establishments with slot machines, they are often called “electronic casinos” and they are basically nothing more than a pub with slots and video poker machines (casino on the other hand have table games, roulette, dealers, card games, private poker rooms and are often a part of a huge hotel, spa resort complex, both types requires the same gambling licence). Unlike in most countries in the neighbourhood, in Croatia, due to the high annual fees and taxes there are more big companies with multiple locations (which are usually foreign owned, annual fees are per company, not per location) rather than smaller locally owned slot halls, a definite negative consequence of high taxes and fees, also there are barely any establishments in the countryside, apart from tourist towns.

Croatian casinos offer mostly the traditional casino games along with slot machines, these are: roulette, blackjack and various forms of poker. Sports betting is also available at some of the casinos, and many electronic casinos sell lottery tickets too.

Online casino gambling is also legal in Croatia. A new law regulating online casino gambling was introduced in 2014. In accordance with this law, online gambling operators must apply for a special online gambling licence, but they can only  get one if they also operate a brick and mortar casino, or an electronic casino.This is very restrictive and it is not lucrative enough for many online gambling operators (many believe that the licensing fee is also unreasonably high). Many online casinos who don’t have license still accept players from Croatia, this is because these companies are registered in other EU countries and Croatia is part of the EU, therefore they are not blocked despite them not having a local Croatian online gambling licence. In fact none of the biggest and the best online casinos (you can find them below) have a local gambling licence, they mostly have a UK or Alderney licence.

The online casinos below accept players from Croatia.

Bingo in Croatia

 

Online bingo in Croatia: legal, requires licence,

 

Bingo is legal in Croatia, and TV bingo and online bingo are quite popular (live bingo is not). According to the Croatian gambling laws, bingo is classified as a lottery type game, and is regulated along with lotteries. Knowing this, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Croatian national lottery operates bingo games in the country. In fact, Hrvatska Lutrija d.o.o., which has a monopoly on all lottery games in the country, also has a monopoly on bingo and online bingo.

The company which owns the national lottery owns a few casinos and electronic casinos too, which organize bingo events. These are the only options to play live bingo in Croatia, events are rare, and it’s impossible to find info on them in English, as these smaller website are only available in Croatian.  From time to time other establishments, non profits, churches and charities hold bingo nights too, these are for a charitable cause and that’s why it’s allowed, despite it being a monopoly of the state. There are no standalone bingo halls.

The most popular form of bingo is the televised Bingo Show.

Games of Hrvatska Lutrija are also available online, including bingo. There are only a few casinos, which accept players from Croatia and also have live bingo. I could only find one and this is the following:

Poker in Croatia

 

Online poker in Croatia: legal, requires licence

 

Poker is legal in Croatia. Poker is considered gambling, not a game of skill in the country. Live poker and poker tournaments, events may only be organised at licensed gambling establishments. As poker is quite popular in the country, most casinos offer at least Texas Hold’em, and other variations are available at several casinos. These casinos host several poker tournaments along with cash games, including the Eureka Poker Tour, organised by PokerStars.

Online poker is also legal in Croatia, and is affected by the changes in gambling regulations in 2014. Operating online poker sites now requires acquiring a gambling licence and paying the associated fee and then acquiring a gambling license on top of it. There are no online poker sites licensed in Croatia as of now. Locals are free to play on international poker sites though. It is important to note that Croatia has opted not to “fence off” their online poker market, but to let the players join the international crowd through future co-operations and by not blocking foreign online poker platforms.

The following online poker sites accept players from Croatia, they are licensed in other EU countries, international player base, allowing European players to compete globally.

Sports betting in Croatia

 

Online sports betting in Croatia: legal, requires licence

 

Sports betting is legal in Croatia. Sports betting had previously been a state monopoly and run by Hrvatska Loterija, the Croatian national lottery. Nowadays, however, there are several competing sports betting companies, though smaller sportsbooks have been pushed out of the market by increasing taxes.  Apart from general sports betting, dog and horse race betting is also available.

Several of the brick and mortar sports betting companies also operate online sports betting sites. The 2014 changes in gambling regulation don’t seem to apply to sports betting, which means online sports betting companies are not required to own a casino within the country to get licensed and the fees are more favourable too. Croatian gamblers may also freely access international online sports betting sites registered in other EU countries.

The online sportsbooks below accept registrations from Croatia.

Lottery in Croatia

 

Online lottery in Croatia: legal, requires licence, state monopoly

 

Lottery is legal in Croatia and it is a state monopoly. The Croatian national lottery is called Hrvatska Lutrija. Hrvatska Lutrija offers numerous games, including number lotteries, keno and bingo as well as sports betting. Lottery tickets can be bought at physical retailers and online as well. Hrvatska Lutrija also has an online casino section too.

As lottery is a state monopoly in Croatia, it is illegal for other companies to operate lottery games whether offline or online. It is perfectly legal, however, for Croatian players to participate in international lotteries and the paneuropean lottery Eurojackpot is available in the country through Hrvatska Lutrija. It’s not illegal for Croatian players to purchase lottery tickets online from foreign lotteries.

The following websites let people from Croatia purchase lottery tickets online:

Bitcoin gambling in Croatia

 

Bitcoin gambling in Croatia: not specifically regulated

Bitcoin gambling is not specifically regulated in Croatia. In accordance with the 2014 gambling law online gambling operators need a gambling licence to offer their services within the country, and there have been no reports of licensed Bitcoin casinos since then. Also, in order to get an online gambling licence the company needs to operate a land based casino within the country, this applies to bitcoin gambling as well, and so far none of the casinos in Croatia accept bitcoin or operate a bitcoin gambling website.

Locals are free to play on foreign Bitcoin gambling sites. The Croatian National Bank issued a statement in 2013 that Bitcoin is legal in Croatia. There are also Bitcoin traders where the Kuna can be exchanged for the cryptocurrency.

The following Bitcoin casinos accept players from Croatia:
