Online casinos in Slovakia

Legal status of digital casinos in Slovakia: legal since 2019, operators require a licence

 

Online casinos are legal in Slovakia since 2019, according to Act No. 30/20191 on Gambling Games, which replaced Act No 171/2005 on Gambling Games2.

Online casino gambling is actually legal in Slovakia since 2005. However, until 2019 online casino gambling was the monopoly of TIPOS, and private companies couldn’t acquire online casino licenses.

Playing in unlicensed online casinos is illegal, and such sites are blacklisted by the Ministry of Finance, which forces internet service providers to block access for Slovakian citizens to these websites, since 20193.

Despite the blacklist and blocking of unlicensed online gambling websites, there are still many in Slovakia who visit and play in illegally operating online casinos. Therefore, Slovakia has made attempts to have financial institutions block financial transaction to and from such gambling companies. However, these institution refused to comply, for legal reasons..

Slovakia and EU gambling laws: Because Slovakia is an EU country Article 56 TFEU4 and Article 8 of Directive 98/34/EC (EU gambling directives) apply.

The reason why online casinos were legalized was pressure from the EU. The online casino monopoly of Slovakia was against various EU laws and the government of Slovakia was repeatedly taken to court because of this infraction.

This is a picture of the official logo of Twitch, the streaming service. To the right of the picture you can read about the reasons why Twitch was banned in Slovakia (due to streaming playing in illegal internet casinos).

Twitch banned in Slovakia due to streaming illegal gambling

UPDATE 2022: Slovakia banned Twitch due to illegal gambling5 (streaming gambling in unlicensed online casinos from Slovakia, and casino gambling content being streamed to minors under 18). I expect more and more countries will ban Twitch now that gambling streamers (60 IQ individuals doing fake overexaggerated emotions while they engage in problem gambling and encourage their audience to do the same).

It has gotten very big on Twitch with some streamers making millions per year from their gullible usually under 30 audience.

/Some context to understand the decision: The majority of people who watch these casino streamers are under 24, a good chuck under 18, usually men (search online for “study finds men watch more twitch” or “study proves gambling is done more by men” if you have doubts, these are well-known facts).

These viewers usually only have high school diplomas at most, or less, and they have a much higher rate of  unemployment than average. Consequently they are poor, pretty much what the internet calls “no life”, very vulnerable to problem gambling (search online for “study proves men are more likely to engage in problem gambling” not to mention education and social class is inversely proportional with problem gambling and addiction./

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Slovakia?

Yes, tourists can freely play online. Only locals are affected by the limitations mentioned above. Although, Slovakian ISPs block unlicensed websites, therefore, as a tourist, as long you are using internet in Slovakia you are also restricted to online gambling websites with a valid licence.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Slovakia: 

Online casino licenses are issued by the Slovakian Office for the Regulation of Gambling (Úrad pre reguláciu hazardných hier), a division of the Slovakian Ministry of Finance. You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of online gambling business in Slovakia. Their website is available in English as well.

The legal entity applying for a license must be registered in Slovakia or in another EU country.

Online casino licenses are valid for 10 years.

An online casino license costs €3 million.

Other requirements and licensing fees can be found on the website of the Slovakian Office for the Regulation of Gambling.

Land-based casinos in Slovakia

Legal status of casinos in Slovakia: legal since 1993, operators require a licence, slot halls are legal too

 

Casinos are legal in Slovakia since 1993, since the country’s independence from Czechoslovakia.

Interestingly, when Slovakia was still part of Czechoslovakia and the USSR casinos were already legalized.

Close to the collapse of the Soviet Union, around 1987, casinos, horse racing betting and sport betting was started to be legalized in order to help the failing economy of the communist block.

There were no casinos in communist Slovakia, although, in 1988 a US company Sun Gold Developments International Corporation almost managed to build one with a 54% majority US private ownership, but Czechoslovakia collapsed before the project got off the ground1.

Casino gambling is regulated by Act No. 30/2019 on Gambling Games2, which is the main piece of the gambling legislation.

This act states that the category “casino gambling games” covers all games where the participants play against each other or against casino representatives (which means it includes both banking and non-banking poker), as well as the electronic versions of these games (including online games).

The act specifically mentions roulette, dice and card games (gaming machines are a separate category). These kinds of games can be found in every casino in Slovakia (details, number and types of games can be seen below, in the casino list, except dice games, none of the Slovakian casino I come across have dice games, dice games are actually very rare in Europe).

/Comment: There is also a category “gambling games which are controlled using technical equipment”, which could theoretically include coin pushers, claw machines and perhaps even pachinko. However, none of the Slovakian casinos have any interesting, unique games like this./

There are currently 13 brick and mortar casinos in operation in Slovakia. Most of these are operated by three big casino companies: Olympic Casinos, Rebuy Stars and Admiral Casinos.

The overwhelming majority of the casinos are located in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, but a few can be found in other cities such as Kosice or Nitra.

UPDATE 2022: Municipalities in Slovakia have the power to ban casinos and slot halls entirely. Bratislava banned gambling establishments in 2017 and again in 2020 (and it is still banned at the time of writing). Bingo halls, betting shops, lottery retailers will be permitted to remain open. However, casinos and slot halls will be banned.

Licensed operators are allowed to continue to offer gambling services until their licences expire (most are expected to expire in around 2023, most gaming venues are still in operation, last chance to play in Bratislava, next year most of them will close). And because most casinos are located in Bratislava the number of casinos is expected to drop significantly.

Apart from casinos, there are about 50 smaller slot halls (also called slot clubs, slot parlours, or electronic casinos), which only have slot machines, electronic roulette, blackjack and video poker.

These slot clubs operate with severe limitations: the maximum wager is €0.10 per spin, and player’s winnings are capped at €5 per spin (which is ridiculously low, avoid these slot halls) and the maximum amount you can bet is €10 per session.

It’s obvious that the state is trying to get rid of these slot halls, and it’s understandable, study after study proves that slot halls contribute significantly more to gambling addiction, problem gambling than the big casinos (often with hotels and entertainment venues attached). They also don’t help the tourism sector, because these slot parlours are usually visited by locals, and tourists visit the casinos instead.

Slovakia doesn’t have any big casinos, by international standards. However, the largest casino in Slovakia is the Olympic Casino Carlton in Bratislava (you can find the details  of the casino in the list below).

You must be 18 or older to enter a casino (applies to online casinos as well), ID is required to enter (for tourists passport is needed or EU ID).

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Slovakia?

Yes, both locals and tourists can visit the casinos in Slovakia, unlike in some other countries (e.g.: in the entire muslim world casinos are only available to the tourists, locals can not enter).

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Slovakia:

Casino licenses are issued by the Slovakian Office for the Regulation of Gambling (Úrad pre reguláciu hazardných hier). You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of gambling business in Slovakia. Their website is available in English as well.

The legal entity applying for a license must be registered in Slovakia or in another EU country.

The main types of brick & mortar gambling establishment licenses that are issued by the Slovakian authorities, and are available for private companies are:

  • casino game licence (roulette games, card games, dice games etc.. everything that is not an automatic gaming machine) – land-based only
  • gambling machine licence (any kind, quiz machines are now considered gambling machines as well, technically coin games and pachinko machines are legal too, slot halls have these licenses, electronic roulette and blackjack belong in this category)
  • licence for gambling games which are controlled using technical equipment and for the operation of video lottery terminals

 

Validity of individual licenses:

  • One calendar year – slot machines
  • Two years – gambling games which are controlled using technical equipment and for the operation of video lottery terminals
  • Two years – games in casinos

 

Other requirements and licensing fees can be found on the website of the Slovakian Office for the Regulation of Gambling.

List of the TOP 5 best rated and biggest casinos in Slovakia

This is a list of all the 5 best rates and biggest casinos in Slovakia, with address, opening hours, number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, reviews and a video of each gambling establishment, if one is available.

 

1., Rebuy Stars Casino Bratislava
This is a picture of the building of the Rebuy Stars Casino in Bratislava, all lit up, at night, while the venue is open, front entrance gate is visible. This is the first casino on this list of the top 5 best rated and biggest Slovakian casinos currently in operation. You can find the other venues on this list below this one. You can read more about this casino to the right of the picture.

Rebuy Stars Bratislava

Rebuy Stars Casino Bratislava, address: Ivanská cesta 410/26, 821 04 Bratislava

Rebuy Stars is hands down the best and biggest casino group in Slovakia. They operate 6 casinos in the country:

  • Trnava (a.k.a. Nagyszombat)
  • Zvolen (a.k.a. Zólyom)
  • Košice (a.k.a. Kassa)
  • Cubicon Casino in Karlova Ves (a.k.a. Károlyfalu)

This one in Bratislava (the capital of Slovakia) is the flagship casino of the group.

You will see many of their casinos on this list of the biggest and best rated casinos in Slovakia.

Rebuy Stars casino Bratislava is the biggest casino of Slovakia (in terms of number of games, see below), and based on hundreds of online reviews it’s also the best rated.

Even though this is the biggest casino of the country, by international standards it is still considered a small venue. Slovakia does not have big casinos (just like most other Central European countries).

Rebuy Stars also operates casinos in the Czech Republic, Croatia in addition to their Slovakian establishments.

 

Games: around 130 gaming machines (slots, video poker, above average brands: Multi Lotto, IGT, Gaminator, Apex and also some more obscure and below average brands: GLT Kajot, Adell, Apollo, Synot IVT, all in all an average selection by international standards), and around 6 tables (2 American Roulette wheels, 2 Ultimate Texas Hold’em tables, 2 blackjack tables) + 4  electronic roulette machines (very good brands: Interblock, Alfa Street), 1 electronic blackjack (Interblock), 1 electronic baccarat (Interblock), 1 electronic Big Six (Interblock)

Grand Casino Admiral has 3 venues in Slovakia:

  • Casino Admiral Trnava
  • Casino Admiral Nitra
  • Casino Admiral Bratislava (this one)

 

This is the biggest and main location of the group, located in the Bratislava Shopping Palace, near the Golden Sands Lake (Zlaté piesky).

The casino has an Ancient Egyptian theme (a pop culture interpretation of Ancient Egypt), the establishment is operation since 2013.

Admiral Group’s main profile is actually slot halls (one of the biggest slot hall chain of Europe actually), not casinos, but in Slovakia their main activity is the operation of casinos interestingly.

Sadly, the official website of the company is really outdated and neglected, but I manged to collect all the essential info about the casino below, mostly from secondary sources.

 

Games: around 270 gaming machines (slots, video poker, bad selection, mostly older machines from lower quality brands: Plurius, Impera, probably second-hand from their slot halls in other countries), and around 12 tables (4 American Roulette wheels, 2 Ultimate Texas Hold’em tables, 2 blackjack tables, 2 Russian Poker tables* and 2 Admiral Hold’em Poker tables**) + 8 Pinball Roulette machines**

 

*Russain poker explanation, how to play, tutorial video: Appeared in the 1990s in Russia and in Eastern European countries, which were part of the USSR before the fall of the Iron Curtain.

It is said to be the favourite of Russian soldiers who brought it with them to Eastern European countries where they were stationed.

If you are new to Russian Poker watch the following short tutorial video to easily learn this Russian poker variant:

 

**Admiral Hold´em with Bad Beat Bonus explanation, how to play: It’s their own version of Texas Hold’em with bad beat bonus (“bad beat” is when a high ranking poker hand is beaten by a higher-ranking hand, e.g.:  dealer’s hand consisting of four-of-a-kind 5s, and it is beaten by your four-of-a-kind 6s, you get a bonus jackpot in this case).

However, there is no info about the game on the website, how it’s special, how it’s different from Texas Hold’em. Therefore, if you know the rules, please share it in the comments section.

 

***Pinball roulette explanation, how to play: It’s single player roulette, an older version of electronic roulette, partially mechanical.

It’s my personal favourite, very rare nowadays sadly.

You start the ball with a pinball style plunger (hence the name), whenever you feel like it. It’s like having your own roulette wheel, which you are in control of totally.

I prefer it over the stressful group tables, I like to take my time thinking about bets, and playing very slowly. while chatting with friends or sipping my drink. No stress, no pressure, all the fun.

/Comment: Not to mention, the older models are really easy to exploit, and are actually not perfectly random in most cases. It’s like wheel bias but except it’s the plunger not the actual wheel. If you get a feel for the plunger you can nudge the odds in your favour a little bit IMO.

This is probably the reason why they all slowly disappeared from casinos/

You can see how pinball roulette looks like in action on the following video:

Olympic Casino Carlton

Olympic Casino Carlton, address: Hviezdoslavovo námestie 185/3, 811 02 Bratislava

Olympic Casino Carlton (also called Olympic Casino Bratislava) is the main gaming venue of Slovakia’s third dominant casino group, the Olympic Entertainment Group.

Olympic Group operates 4 out of the 13 casinos in Slovakia. Olympic group is best known for its slot halls actually, but interestingly, just like Admiral group above, in Slovakia they primarily operate casinos.

This venue is located in the Radisson SAS Carlton Hotel in Bratislava.

It is a smaller casino, much smaller than the two casinos above.

Olympic Entertainment Group is the biggest slot hall operator in the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) and it operates casinos in Slovakia, Italy and Malta.

At the time of writing the company operates 111 gambling establishments altogether.

This is a very small casino, barely more than a slot hall.

 

Games: around 40 gaming machines (slots, video poker, bad selection, old machines, low quality brands), and around 5 tables (2 American Roulette tables, 1 blackjack table, 1 Ultimate Texas Hold’em, 1 Oasis Stud Poker)

Meta review analysis: the casino gets okay reviews, 3.5/5, most complain about the old, outdated machines, which sometime don’t work and about the rude, unfriendly staff that looks visibly tired, disheveled and according to reviews online many gypsies frequent this casino, causing problems (fights, drunkenness, rudeness, theft, shouting, not observing the rules, smoking in non-smoking areas, aggressively catcalling women etc..)

Apart from this, it’s a typical Rebuy Stars establishment, and everything already mentioned at the Bratislava Rebuy Casino applies here as well.

This is the second best rated casino in Slovakia.

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!

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!
