Gambling websites in the Czech Republic
Summary: Gambling is legal in the Czech Republic since 1990 (a.k.a Czechia, a Central European country with a population of 10.7 million, member of the EU), and there is an abundance of casinos and other gambling establishments since 2012 (between 2009 and 2012 there were only 5 casinos).

Prior to 1990 the Czech Republic was part of the USSR, and in the Soviet Union gambling was mostly illegal. 

The main piece of the gambling legislation is the 2016 Gambling Act1, which replaced the 1990 Law on Lotteries and Other Like Games2.

Online gambling is also legal in the Czech Republic since 2012 (legalized by the 2012 amendment of the Law on Lotteries, and in 2016 additional forms of online games of chance were permitted with the Gambling Act).

History of Gambling in the Czech Republic - click to expand

History of Gambling in the Czech Republic3:

The earliest record of any sort of gambling activity in the territory of the modern day Czech Republic is from 1355. Maiestas Carolina, a Code of the Emperor Charles IV, included provisions to restrict gambling for money.

18th century – Lottery and gambling shops, and licensing of such establishments is mentioned in legal documents from that era.

1919–39 –  In the interwar period gambling was widespread, and thousands of original Czech slot machines were manufactured and operated throughout Czechoslovakia.

1948–89 – In the communist period state-controlled scratch cards, lottery, sports and horse racing betting (totalizator) were allowed.

1990 – End of the Soviet era, and the creation of the 1990 Law on Lotteries and Other Like Games, which legalized casinos and gaming machines.

2012 – online lottery and online sports betting were legalized by a 2012 amendment to the 1990 Law on Lotteries and Other Like Games

2016 – Creation of the 2016 Gambling Act, which legalized online gambling in the country.

 

Currently there are more than 70 gambling operators in the Czech Republic. In addition, large numbers of gaming machines are manufactured in the country not only for domestic use,
but also for foreign markets. The annual production of one such plant (owned by the Austrian Novomatic Group) is up to 100 000 gaming machines per year, making Czechia the lead gaming machine producer in the EU.

However, there are only 3 online gambling operators licensed in the Czech Republic currently, Synot, Fortuna and Tipsport (+the state owned online lottery). This is a very low number, but there are very good reasons for this.

Online gambling is severely mismanaged in the Czech Republic (and it is also taxed quite heavily). The current way it is handled is by far the worst out of any of the EU countries.

For starters, the Czech Republic has introduced new restrictions regarding online gambling promotions. Any gambling website licensed in the country can no longer offer any bonuses, promotions, free bets or free spins, at all.

Because of this, the already inferior, and overtaxed Czech online gambling sites can not compete with the foreign offshore online gambling websites, which are often licensed in tax havens

Also, as a result of this restriction, even foreign online casinos licensed in other EU countries often don’t allow Czech players to use their promotions to avoid any legal issues.

However, the biggest reason for the horrendous performance of the online gambling segment is the face-to-face verification.

The Czech Republic is the only country in the whole world, where you can’t verify your identity online, when it comes to online gambling. You have to do the following to be able to play online in any of the locally licensed online casinos:

To obtain face-to-face verification (also known as Customer Identification Performed by a Public Notary, or by Regional or Municipal Authority), you need to visit your nearest Czech POINT or a municipal office.
And you will need the following:

You will also need to show them the following details:

 

/Comment: Can you imagine that anyone would go through this verification process just to play online? Especially when there are thousands of offshore online casinos just a click away, which don’t require this.

This is really not a good idea. Not only can the properly licensed, legally operating online casinos can not offer any bonuses, promotions and have to pay high taxes, players have to do all this just to be able to play. Unbelievable…

No wonder William Hill left the Czech market./

Also, the Czech Republic is a member of the EU, which means that Article 56 TFEU4 (EU gambling directives) apply. In short, this means that foreign online gambling operators should be able to get an online gambling licence in all EU member countries. If this is not the case, they can accept players from the country, legally, even without a license. And the offending countries can not block these websites or prosecute players who place bets on these platforms.

According to some key players in the industry, this face 2 face verification process violates the TFEU by making online gambling de facto impossible, and bars foreign online gambling companies from entering the market, and it does not provide a level playing field, which is exactly what the TFEU meant to facilitate.

And because of this, many unlicensed online gambling companies continue to accept players from the Czech Republic, even without a license. Players are not prosecuted for playing on unlicensed international gambling sites. And those websites don’t require such torturous verification process (you only have to upload your ID or passport if asked, usually during the withdrawal process).

UPDATE 2021: Luckily, there is now talk of getting rid of the mandatory face-2-face verification process.

“Denisa Marcekova, head of the Czech & Slovak Internet Gambling Association, said such bank ID checks would be welcomed by operators.

She said: “I strongly believe this is a significant step in the right direction. I hope that the recently launched governmental review of the Czech gambling regulation will result in even smoother access to the market in the near future.”5

Betting on blood sports in the Czech Republic

All forms of blood sports are considered animal cruelty, and are illegal in the Czech Republic. Betting on blood sports is also illegal.

 

If you are new to the Czech Republic, check out the following video to find out why so many Western Europeans regularly visit the country:

/Comment: I definitely recommend the Czech Republic over any of the Western European countries. It is a much better value for money. If you are looking for the European experience with medieval towns, castles on the cheap, then head to any of the Central European countries, they won’t disappoint you (more than 50% cheaper than the Western European locations for basically the same experience, in fact, I personally think it’s better, because it’s less globalized than the West)./ 

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Czechia?

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

 

Gambling licensing in the Czech Republic

In accordance with the new 2016 gambling legislation, gambling operators who wish to provide games of chance, or any betting/wagering services, need to apply for a licence at Ministry of Finance. Their website is available in English as well.

UPDATE: The licensing requirements were changed as a response to the overabundance of slot machines and video poker machines, which were installed everywhere by using a loophole in the gambling legislation (the establishments didn’t have licenses, only the companies who put the slot machines there). Since 2019, the establishments where such machines are placed need to have a gambling license too, not just the companies, which service the machines.

Companies are required to maintain a CZK 5 million bank account for paying out winners.

Gambling tax in the Czech Republic

The rate of gambling tax is determined by the Act No. 187/2016 on Gambling Tax6.

The gambling tax rate is 23%, except in case of technical games and lottery, which are both taxed at a higher 35% tax rate. The tax base is gross winnings of the casino (the amount the casino makes on a player, how much you lose).

/Comment: Technical games means gaming machines (slots and video poker or online slots). Also, taxing gross winnings is a fantastic idea, most countries tax gross gambling revenue instead, this is significantly better, this does not incentivize casinos to make the players lose money./

The gambling tax is paid on top of the usual taxes (e.g.: corporate tax, which is 19%).

 

For players, taxation of gambling winnings in the Czech Republic:

Gambling winnings were not taxed prior to 2020. However, currently winnings from raffles and lottery are now subject to a 15% withholding tax if they exceed CZK 1 million (per occasion, not total for the whole year).

Winnings from every other type of game of chance are taxed as income (15% income tax applies). The winning stake/bet can be deducted as expense.

Summary:

 

Casino gambling in the Czech Republic

Casinos in the Czech Republic: legal since 1990, operators require a licence

Online casino gambling in the Czech Republic: legal since 2016, operators require a licence

 

Casino gambling is legal in the Czech Republic. Most of the bigger casinos are situated in or near Prague, often attached to hotels, resorts, spas. Games on offer include all the traditional casino games: poker, blackjack, roulette and slot machines. Smaller gambling establishments usually only have slot machines and/or video poker machines.

You can find a list of the bigger Czech casinos here, with address, opening hours, dress code, entrance fee, and a video of each venue.

UPDATE: Slot halls were also legal. However, due to a 2019 amendment to the Gambling Act all the slot machines from various pubs, grocery stores and cafés disappeared. In addition, 457 Czech municipalities implemented a total ban on gambling,  including Prague’s 2. district, which includes Vyšehrad and parts of Vinohrady, New Town and Nusle. The number of municipalities which ban gambling entirely is on the rise ever since.

Since slot machines were relegated to licensed gambling establishments in 2019 (and much sooner in certain municipalities) now some of the shadier slot machine companies try to circumvent the new ban by placing so called “kvizomats”, trivia machines all over the country. These are usually multiple choice question machines. Right now they are not considered gambling, but the government is very hostile towards this practice, as it is clearly exploiting a loophole.*

Online casinos are also legal in the Czech Republic since 2016. However, domestic, licensed online casinos can not offer any bonuses, promotions and you need to verify yourself via an arduous face-to-face registration (described above). Operators require a licence.

Foreign online gambling sites can be blocked by ISPs, but only the biggest ones are.

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!
