Slovenia Gambling Guide
Summary: Gambling is legal in Slovenia since 1991 (officially the Republic of Slovenia, a poorer Central European country, independent since 1991, a member of the EU, has a population of 2.1 million).

Some forms of online gambling are legal in Slovenia. Players can freely play online.

History of Gambling in Slovenia - click to expand

Slovenia is only independent since 1991 (since the dissolution of Yugoslavia).

In order to fully understand the history of gambling in the country, we have to look at what happened prior to the country’s independence, and it is best to divide that history into two chapters:

1., History prior to independence when Slovenia was still part of Yugoslavia (along with Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo and Slovenia):

1913 – Gambling on the territory of modern day Slovenia predates even the formation of Yugoslavia. The first written record of gambling is from 1913, when Slovenia was still a part of the Austria-Hungary. This year marked the opening of Grand Casino Portorož, the oldest (still in operation) casino of Slovenia.

Portorož back then was the most important resort town of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, much beloved by the nobility and 1% of the era.

/Comment: Slovenia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy until 1918./

1965 – The Yugoslavian Gaming Act was introduced, the official reasoning was that they legalized gambling to help with the rebuilding of the country after World War II..

1972 – The Penthouse Adriatic Club opened this year in Yugoslavia, the project cost $45 million, and it was the biggest casino of Slovenia back then. This casino, hotel, resort complex was owned by Robert Charles Joseph Edward Sabatini Guccione the American founder and publisher of Penthouse magazine.

Officially there were no casinos in Yugoslavia, but “pavilions for games of chance” were allowed as long they focused primarily on tourists and foreigners (most of these venues only allowed foreigners to play).

By 1972 the number of casinos in Yugoslavia reached 28, but only 3 of them were located on the territory of Slovenia1. And even though Yugoslavia was a communist country, only 4 of these casinos were state-owned.

2., Gambling after the disunion of Yugoslavia:

1991 – This year marked Slovenia’s independence. Gambling is legal since the country’s inception. Existing casinos are allowed to continue to operate.

1995 – Casinos are officially legalized in Slovenia with the Slovenian Gaming Act (remember, in Yugoslavia casinos were not officially legalized), and the ban on locals entering gambling venues was abolished too.

Initially, casinos could only be established in the more important tourist towns (had to have one thousand tourist beds and at least two hundred thousand overnight stays by foreign tourists per year2, later the requirements were lowered, to allow cities near the Italian border, e.g.: Nova Gorica, to fully take advantage of the influx of Italian tourists.

2012 – The gambling laws of Slovenia get overhauled by Zakon o igrah na sreč, which is still the main piece of the gambling legislation even today (details below)

2022 – Online gambling is expected to be finally fully legalized and regulated (the last country in the EU to do so).

Gambling is legal in Slovenia since the country’s independence from Yugoslavia in 1991, the main piece of the gambling legislation is the 2012 Law on Gambling (Zakon o igrah na srečo)3 and its amendments.

Fun fact: Interestingly, back in the days of Yugoslavia, casinos were built for the tourists, you could only enter with a foreign passport. Locals were forbidden to enter most venues, because the activity was deemed “irreconcilable with the socialist values”. This is interesting because nowadays the casino sector is still very dependent on tourists.

The Italian tourists are the main driving force of the contemporary Slovenian casino sector, and casinos still primarily cater to tourists and not the locals (of course locals can enter the casinos nowadays).

Casinos are legal and regulated in Slovenia since 1995, and they account for a large portion of the state’s revenues from tourism and gambling.

Some forms of online gambling are legal in Slovenia but it is still considered underregulated and not liberalized, which makes Slovenia the last European country that still hasn’t properly regulated online gambling.

Currently, the only legal forms of online gambling in Slovenia are: the online lottery, which is a monopoly of the Slovenian National Lottery (owned by non-profit organizations and the government), online bingo, and online sports betting, which are a monopoly of Sportna Loterija (a subsidiary of the national lottery).

UPDATE: Online casinos are legal too since 2016, the only licensed Slovenian online casino is operated by Casino Portorož d.d. (details and source can be found in the Slovenia casino gambling section below). Additional private companies can not acquire online gambling licences currently.

The current online gambling legislation of Slovenia is not EU compliant and there is considerable litigation because of this behind the scenes. The EU exerts heavy political pressure on the country to change its online gambling laws.

Because of this pressure the country is in the process of creating and accepting the New Gaming Act since 2014, which would make online gambling expressly legal and allow private operators to obtain a licence in the country.

However, Slovenian players can freely play online on foreign online gambling websites, and they are not prosecuted or fined.

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

UPDATE 2022: The new Slovenian Draft Gambling Act is pending approval in the parliament since 2021. If passed, this will finally liberalize the online gambling sector of Slovenia. This new overhaul of the legal framework will make the country’s gambling legislation finally EU compliant.

The New Gaming Act will also impose fines and ISP (internet service providers) bans on sites that conduct games of chance over the internet without a licence. Actually, Slovenia already blocks many of the biggest unlicensed offshore internet wagering platforms, even though this is against EU laws.

/Comment: Article 56 TFEU prohibits restrictions on the freedom to provide services within the EEA, there was litigation because of this behind the scenes,  for years, but they do it anyway5.

You can read much more about this topic here, on the website of the European Commission and the EU Court of Justice./

You can find a list of online gambling websites, which accept players from Slovenia below. 

 

Can tourists play online from Slovenia? 

Yes, the laws discussed on this webpage only apply to Slovenian citizens, and does not apply to tourists. Tourists (expats, non-citizens, illegal migrants) can play online freely. However, unlicensed foreign gambling websites will be blocked by the internet service providers, and won’t be accessible, while you are using the Slovenian internet infrastructure.

 

Betting on blood sports in Slovenia

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

Slovenia has more to offer than its casino hotels. If you are thinking about visiting Slovenia watch the following travel video to see what the country has to offer to tourists:

/Comment: Slovenia is a poorer country, but it is still 100% safe, and it is undoubtedly European (it has a very low crime rate, just avoid the gypsies, they like to scam tourists and are nothing but trouble).

And because it is a poor country that means it’s cheap (for Western Europeans and North Americans). You can get the ‘European experience’ here for less than 1/3 of the price of what you would pay in Western Europe, great value for money.

I can recommend it, it’s only getting more and more expensive, year by year.

Full disclosure, I live in the neighbouring Hungary and I’ve visited the country multiple times./

 

Slovenia gambling licenses

Gambling licenses are issued by the Financial Administration of the Republic of Slovenia. You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of gambling operations in Slovenia. Their website is available in English as well.

The number of casino licenses is capped at 15, and the number of slot halls is capped at 45.

The law makes a difference between casinos and slot halls, casino gambling is called “special gambling”, while slots belong to the category “classic, regular gambling” (this categorization is the same in all of the post-Yugoslavian countries, a legacy of the original Yugoslavian gambling legislation).

UPDATE: The number of available licenses is increased almost yearly, e.g.: in 2013 the maximum number of slot halls was 30, right now is 45, at the time of writing, there are no free casino or slot hall concession slots left. And until the government of the Republic of Slovenia increases the limit once more, it’s not possible to get a licence for a casino or a slot hall.

You can find information on the licensing requirements and fees on the website of the Financial Administration of Slovenia.

Slovenia gambling tax

The following are the gambling tax rates in Slovenia6:

Slovenia gambling tax rates
Activity: Tax rate: Tax base:
general gambling tax 5 – 18% depends on the exact type of game, gross gambling revenue
concession, license fee 5 – 45% depends on the exact type of game, gross gambling revenue
gambling winnings 15% if the prize exceeds € 300

This is on top of regular taxes (e.g: corporate tax, which is 19%). Gambling is VAT exempt.

As you can see, the gambling tax rates are quite high in Slovenia.

/Comment: If they finally open up their online gambling market, and they will try to force these kinds of tax rates on the international online gambling companies, then nobody will want to get a licence in Slovenia, and companies will just keep on accepting Slovenian players without a license, without paying taxes, just like they do right now.

They will be forced to reduce taxes, just like Slovakia had to reduce their online gambling tax rate from 27% to 22%./

 

For players: not taxed, taxes on gambling winnings are withheld at the source, paid by the companies

Summary:

 

Casino gambling in Slovenia

Casinos in Slovenia: legal since 1991, operators require a licence, slot halls are legal too, but there is no separate licence

Online casino gambling in Slovenia: legal since 2016, monopoly of Casino Portorož

 

Casinos are legal in Slovenia since 1991.

Currently, there are approximately 15 casinos in the country (which is the maximum number of casino licenses allowed).

UPDATE COVID-19: But due to the global pandemic, and the dramatic reduction in the number of tourist a few casinos close to the Italian border are expected to close permanently.

Most of the casinos are dependent on the influx of wealthy Italian tourists, who prefer the cheaper and often bigger Slovenian casinos to their overpriced Italian counterparts (e.g: casinos in Italy always have entrance fees, while Slovenian casinos never have any).

Slot halls are legal too, and their number is capped at 50. The maximum number of slot halls has also been reached, although they raise the limit almost yearly.

UPDATE: Online casinos are legal in Slovenia since 2016, although just barely, only Casino Portorož d.d. (the oldest casino operator of Slovenia, in operations since 1913) got a special licence*, other private companies can not even apply at this point. This make online casino gambling a monopoly of Casino Portorož, at least for now.

Slovenia is the last EU country where digital casinos are not yet properly addressed by the gambling legislation, there is no licensing system in place and the digital casino sector is not liberalized.

This sort of cronyism and monopoly situation is 100% against the EU directives and severely violates free flow of services within the European Economic Area (EEA).

/Comment: Both Germany and Netherlands finally opened up their online casino market in 2021, after similar pressure from the EU./

The proposed New Gambling Act is meant to rectify this in the near future (although they have been promising this since 2014, they seem to work slow). However, for now, Slovenian players can freely place bets in foreign online casinos, and in the online casino of Casino Portorož in the meantime.

The online casinos below accept players from Slovenia.

Bingo in Slovenia

Bingo halls in Slovenia: legal since 1991, state monopoly

Online bingo in Slovenia: legal, monopoly of Sportna Loterija and Loterija Slovenije

 

Bingo is legal in Slovenia since 1991, since the country’s inception.

Even before the country’s independence, bingo was legal. When the country was still part of Yugoslavia bingo was allowed in support of charitable causes (which is still the case today, both Sportna Loterija and Loterija Slovenije are owned primarily by non-profit organizations, and proceeds are largely spent on charitable causes).

Later, it was deemed a form of “classic gambling” (as opposed to special gambling, the other category of games defined in the legislation) by the Gaming Act of 1964, and as such, irt could only be organized by the state-owned lottery companies of Yugoslavia.

According to the current regulations. laid down by the 2012 Law on Gambling (Zakon o igrah na srečo), bingo is a lottery-like game, which can be conducted only by Loterija Slovenije and its subsidiary Sportna Loterija.

Online bingo is also legal, and similarly it can only be organized by the national lottery (or its subsidiary Sportna Loterija). Private companies are not eligible for a licence.

The Slovenia lottery doesn’t officially have bingo. However, tikitaka is very similar to bingo.

Foreign online bingo platforms can not accept players from Slovenia. Playing on unlicensed offshore bingo platforms is illegal.

The following online bingo websites accept players from Slovenia.

Online bingo websites, which accept players from Slovenia - click to see

The following online casino websites have live bingo and accept players from Slovenia:

It’s a monopoly of Loterija Slovenije and its subsidiary Sportna Loterija.

 

Poker in Slovenia

Poker halls in Slovenia: legal since 1991, operators require a licence, no standalone poker halls, restricted to the casinos only

Online poker in Slovenia: not regulated

 

Poker is legal in Slovenia. However, there are no standalone poker halls in the country, poker club licenses are not issued. Poker is restricted to the poke rooms of the licensed casinos (all of them have poker tables, and the bigger casinos all have poker rooms).

In some countries non-banking poker is considered a game of skill, not a game of chance. In Slovenia poker is considered ‘special gambling’ (both banking and non-banking poker), a game of chance, and it is regulated as a casino game.

The poker scene is rather small, and Perla Casino Resort is the focal point of it. Despite this, sometimes bigger poker tournaments do stop in the country, mostly to take advantage of the location (right next to Italy, big poker tournaments always take place in casinos right next the Italian border).

Online poker is still a legal grey area, players are not prosecuted for playing on foreign online platforms, but ISPs do block some of the bigger unlicensed foreign poker platforms (Even though it is against EU laws).

The online poker sites below accept players from Slovenia.

Sports betting in Slovenia

Bookmakers, betting shops in Slovenia: legal since 1991, state monopoly

Online sports betting in Slovenia: legal, state monopoly

 

Bookmakers are legal in Slovenia.

The only licensed and legal bookmaker in Slovenia is the state backed Sportna Loterija, which has plenty of land based betting shops as well, throughout the country. It also launched a virtual sports betting service last year, on software provided by the company Inspired Gaming*.

Online sports betting is also technically legal to some extent, But Sportna Loterijais the only licensed sportsbook in Slovenia and it state sanctioned sports wagering monopoly. Foreign online bookmakers, can not apply for a licence, although this is expected to change sometime in 2022.

In 2006, the government attempted to block the two most popular foreign sports betting sites: bwin.com, and bet-at-home.com. However, this violated several EU and domestic laws (Slovenia became an EU member is 2004). Therefore, most ISPs in the country refused to comply with the government’s request** initially.

However, eventually, due the government asserting its power they bowed to subsequent requests. Despite this, blocking is only partially successful, very spotty, easy to circumvent (with a VPN, or IPmask) and only the bigger digital sportsbooks are blocked (and there is a lot of litigation behind the scenes because of this).

For now, Slovenian citizens can freely place bets online with offshore internet bookmakers.

The following online sportsbooks below accept registrations from Slovenia.

Lottery in Slovenia

Lottery in Slovenia: legal, monopoly of Loterija Slovenije

Online lottery in Slovenia: legal, state monopoly

 

Lottery is legal since the inception of Slovenia, and actually it was legal in both Yugoslavia and the Austro-Hungarian Empire prior to the country’s independence.

/Comment: Slovenia was part of these political entities prior to its current independence, details can be found above in the history of gambling section./

Loterija Slovenije is the only legal lottery provider in Slovenia, it is a state controlled monopoly.

The Slovenian national lottery is 40% owned by the non-profit company Slovenian National Council of Disabled People’s Organizations, and 15% by the state of Slovenia (rest is various investment groups, and 10% of the company is owned by the employees).

It offers games such as Loto, Super Loto, the Paneuropean lottery game Euro Jackpot and Vikinglotto, 3×3 plus 6, etc… (no keno). All games are available on the online platform as well.

In fact, online lottery (which includes instant games and online scratch cards, which makes it almost like an online casino) are the main legal form of online gambling in Slovenia right now.

Unlike most other European national lotteries the Slovenian lottery platform doesn’t have a sports betting section at all. It’s handled by a separate company, with a sperate platform, Sportna Loterija.

Slovenian players can also participate in foreign lottery draws, in person, as a tourist visiting other countries, or online, from so called “lottery purchasing services” (lottery purchasing services are businesses, which purchase physical lottery tickets for you in a foreign country if you make a purchase on their website, you can see an example of such a website below).

Apart from Loterija Slovenije, the following digital lottery retailers allow people from Slovenia to purchase lottery tickets online.

Bitcoin gambling in Slovenia

Cryptocurrency wagering in Slovenia: not specifically regulated

 

In 2013 the Ministry of Finance of Slovenia issued a formal opinion about the legal status of bitcoin and other virtual currencies, in response to a request from the Tax Administration. This formal opinion states that bitcoin is not a monetary means under Slovenian law and not a financial instrument, therefore it can not be used asa currency in the country, by businesses.

The approach of the authorities to cryptocurrencies hasn’t changed since.

As a result, none of the brick & mortar gambling venues in the country accept bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum or any other crypto coin. Additionally, the national lottery company also does not accept crypto.

The only way to place bets with cryptocurrency is by visiting foreign online gambling sites, which accept usually at least one alternative digital currency (which is usually bitcoin) through the various payment processor they work with.

Even the proposed new 2022 Gaming Act will not address gambling with virtual currencies, therefore, the status quo is not expected to change anytime soon.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Slovenia.

The following online casino websites accept bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum, and accept players from Slovenia:

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!
