Online casinos in Croatia

Legal status of digital casinos in Croatia: legal since 2010, operators require a licence

 

Online casino gambling is legal in Croatia since 2010, though it is heavily taxed and regulated (15% from casino and 25% from slots + €500 000 annual licensing fee per company + winnings of the players is taxed too).

The law affecting online casino operators has been, until very recently, the Ordinance on Interactive Online Casino Gaming of 20101. However, in 2014, a new bill, the Croatia Gambling Law ‘Zakon o igrama na sreću2 was introduced (in force since 2015, after EU approval). This new 2014 online gambling law (and it amendments) replaced the 2010 Ordinance as the main piece of the online casino gambling legislation.

Private operators require a licence to operate online casinos and accept players from Croatia.

Unlike in most European country, the state owned lottery monopoly the Hrvatska Lutrija also operates an online casino (the Icasino, which has fewer and lower quality games than private operators, also, barely any bonuses or promotions).

Due to the strict regulations, high licensing fees and licensing requirements (details can be seen below in the online casino licensing and taxation section) not many companies applied for Croatian online casino licences.

By scrolling below, you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Croatian players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Croatia?

Yes, tourist (or non-citizen expats, or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Croatia: 

The gambling licensing authority of Croatia is the Ministry of Finance. Website is available in English as well. You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of gambling business in the country.

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 and pay the associated fee of HRK 3 000 000 (about $500 000, annually) and have enough in reserves (an additional HRK 3 million) at all times to pay player’s winnings2.

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).

Also, you have to operate a land-based casino to be eligible for an online casino gambling licence, which was seen as discriminatory by many online gambling companies, and according to some interpretations it also contravenes Article 56 TFEU3 (EU gambling directives).

Land-based casinos in Croatia

Legal status of casinos in Croatia: legal, operators require a licence

 

The main piece of the casino gambling legislation in Croatia is the Croatia Gambling Law ‘Zakon o igrama na sreću”1.

Despite the relatively high taxes and enormous licensing fees (details can be found below), the land-based casino gambling sector is alive and well in Croatia. There are about 20 bigger casinos throughout the country. And there are over 150 smaller gambling establishments where only slots and video poker machines are available (a.k.a. slot halls, and if they have electronic tables as well, then they are considered electronic casinos).

The biggest gambling company in the country is Admiral, with many slot halls (Admiral Automat Clubs), and they also operate multiple casinos, including the biggest casino in Croatia currently, the Grand Casino Admiral.

The casinos are concentrated in Croatia’s capital city Zagreb, and in the resort towns by the Mediterranean Sea (Dubrovnik, Split). The entire gambling sector is primarily geared towards tourists.

Casinos in Croatia are usually found in or connected to a hotel, spa or resort. They don’t usually have an official dress code, but smart casual is customary.

Casinos in Croatia don’t have entrance fees, and they can serve alcohol.

By international standards the casinos in Croatia are small, even the biggest casino in the country is below average in terms of size, compared to the leading casino destinations in the world (e.g.: USA, Macau).

 

List of the biggest casinos in Croatia: 

The following are the biggest casinos in the country.

 

Unlike in most European country, Hrvatska Lutrija, the national lottery company also operates casinos and slot halls (Cro Casino and Cro Casino Clubs).

/Comment: This is very unusual. And I’m surprised that this blatant distortion of free market competition and unfair advantage is tolerated by the EU. I doubt it’s EU compliant./

 

You can find all the currently operating brick and mortar casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Croatia?

Yes, both locals and tourists can play in the casinos.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Croatia:

The gambling licensing authority of Croatia is the Ministry of Finance. Website is available in English as well. You have to contact them if you wish to establish a casino or a slot hall in the country.

Both casinos and slot halls require the same type of license.

Cro Casino

Cro Casino, address: Ul. grada Vukovara 72, 10000, Zagreb

Hrvatska Lutrija, the Croatian state owned lottery monopoly owns a casino (this one) and multiple slot halls in the country. The casino is called Cro Casino (and their online casino is also called Cro Casino), and the slot halls are called Cro Club (there are 13 Cro Clubs: Gospić, Krapinske Toplice, Novi Zagreb, Osijek Sjenjak, Pula, Sveta Nedelja, Vinkovci, Virovitica, Vukovar, Zabok, Bolnička, Selska, Zlatar Bistrica).

/Comment: The fact that the national lottery company also owns gaming venues is very unusual in Europe, usually the state controlled lottery companies are restricted to lottery, lottery like games e.g.: keno, bingo and online lottery (and perhaps sports betting too, that seems to be common). But usually, for fear of market distortions and backlash from private operators, they do not own casinos directly. Apparently this is not a concern in Croatia…./

 

Games: around 100 slot machines, and around 10 tables (roulette, blackjack)

You can also bet on sports and purchase lottery tickets in the casino.

Bitcoin casinos in Croatia

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Bitcoin gambling is not specifically regulated in Croatia.

The Croatian National Bank issued a statement in 2013 that bitcoin is officially legal in Croatia. However, cryptocurrencies are not accepted as currency in the country, which means none of the land-based casinos can accept bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum etc…, and there are no online bitcoin casinos licensed in Croatia either.

Locals can only place bets using alternative digital currencies on unlicensed foreign gambling platforms. This is technically illegal, and for legal reasons I can not recommend it. But in reality, players are not prosecuted for this.

 

 

Other forms of online gambling in Croatia

Apart from online casinos, online bingo, poker and sports betting are also legal.

Online lottery is a monopoly of the state owned lottery company.

Even though online bingo is legal, it is considered a form of lottery. Therefore, it is a monopoly of Hrvatska Lutrija, the Croatian national lottery.

The following online gambling websites accept players from Croatia:

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
