Find out which are the best land-based casinos and licensed online casino sites in Slovenia, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

Legal status of digital casinos in Slovenia: legal since 2016, monopoly of Casino Portorož

 

Online casinos are legal in Slovenia since 2016. Slovenian players can freely play online.

The legal framework of online casino gambling in Slovenia is on the precipice of major changes.

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 anyway1.

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

The Slovenian online gambling sector slowly started changing around 2012. In 2012 the Slovenian government began preparations for the introduction of a new gaming act, one that would explicitly regulate online casino gambling in the country, and one that would liberalize the sector.

As Slovenia is part of the European Union the original plan was for the new gaming act to be compliant with relevant EU directives and to come into effect in 2014, but debates over the exact way online casinos should be regulated and how to make the new regulations EU complaint made this impossible (and of course gambling is always a politically charged topic, there was a lot of politicking as well). Therefore, after all the compromises, they come up with something very weird in 2016.

In 2016 they legalized online casinos. However, the only Slovenian online casino licence was awarded to Casino Portorož d.d. (they operates Slovenia’s oldest casino, in operation since 1913, predates both Slovenia and Yugoslavia, and both world wars, first casino company of the country, details can be found in the Slovenia casino list below)1.

Additionally, private companies can not acquire online gambling licences currently, and there is no licensing system in place. This is 100% not EU compliant, pretty much as not EU complaint as one could make it.

Unsurprisingly Brussel was not happy, and they put pressure on the country and sued the government. However, ultimately they were placated by promises that the new 2022 Slovenian digital casino legal framework will be compliant with relevant EU and EEA directives.

In the meantime, Slovenian players can freely play in offshore online casinos.

Slovenia and the EU gambling laws: Because Slovenia is an EU country Article 56 TFEU2 and Article 8 of Directive 98/34/EC (EU gambling directives) apply.

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

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Slovenia?

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

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Slovenia: 

Online casino licenses are not issued in Slovenia currently.

Right now only Casino Portorož d.d. has a special online casino licence, awarded to them by the government (through an invitation only special concession process). This makes online casino gambling technically a monopoly of Casino Portorož d.d., which makes Slovenian the only EU country with an online casino monopoly.

Taxation of online casino sites in Slovenia: 

The following are the gambling tax rates in Slovenia4 (they apply to online casino as well):

Slovenia online casino 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 casino gambling market, and they will try to force these kinds of tax rates on the international online casino 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 the players, taxation of online casino gambling winnings in Slovenia: not taxed, taxes on gambling winnings are withheld at the source, paid by the companies

Land-based casinos in Slovenia

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

 

Casinos are legal in Slovenia since the country’s independence in 1991, according Law on Gambling (Zakon o igrah na srečo)1, which is the main piece of the gambling legislation.

Brick and mortar casinos were only specifically regulated in 1995, 4 years after the the country’s independence, after the disunion of Yugoslavia. However, in the meantime the existing casinos were allowed to stay open (e.g.: Grand Casino Portorož).

The oldest casino is Grand Casino Portorož, which actually predates both the independence of Slovenia and Yugoslavia, and it was established when the territory of what is now Slovenia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (details of this casino cab be seen below, in the casino list).

Initially, casinos could only be established in the more important tourist towns (requirements were: 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 of the influx of Italian tourists.

At the moment there are 15 casinos operating in Slovenia, which is the maximum amount allowed by the Ministry of Finance. Interestingly, the city with the most casino establishments is not the capital, Ljubljana, but the small border town, Nova Gorica, close to the Italian border.

The largest casino in Slovenia is the Perla Casino & Hotel, also located in Nova Gorica, it is considered large, even by international standards. It is Europe’s biggest casino currently.

Slot halls are also legal in Slovenia.

/Differences between slot halls and casinos: Slot halls only have gaming machines and are usually smaller than casinos. Casinos have live dealer table games and card games as well, and the are usually larger.

Additionally, casinos are usually part of a resort complex with a hotel, and they are visited by a substantial number of tourists, whereas slot halls (also called electronic casinos) are more for the locals. Many studies have proven that slot halls contribute significantly more to gambling addiction and problem gambling./

There are 45 slot halls, which is the maximum number allowed. Because both the number of casinos and slot halls reached the limit set by the government, it’s not possible for private companies to get land-based gaming venue licenses anymore.

Slovenia has surprisingly big casinos for a country of just 5.5 million, even Europe’s current biggest casino (in terms of gaming machines and tables) is located in this small country.

The reason for this is the influx of well-off Italian tourists, which are the driving force behind the Slovenian casino sector’s expansion (most casino in Slovenia are located near the Italian border). Austrian tourists are also important to a secondary degree.

/Comment: Casinos in Italy are overpriced tourist traps, with entrance fees, and most are smaller than Slovenian casinos, that’s why many Italians prefer Slovenian casinos. 

Austrian casinos are in general are  small and neglected despite the affluence of the country. No wonder tourists from both countries choose the Slovenian casinos./

There are 3 big casino companies operating in the country:

  • hit group, which operates the 3 biggest casinos of Slovenia: Perla Casino & Hotel, Park Hotel & Entertainment, Aurora Restaurant & Entertainment
  • Portorož group, operates only 2 casinos, but it operates the oldest casino of the country, currently holds the only online casino licence
  • Novomatic, the Austrian gambling company also operates slot halls, and in terms of number of gambling establishments it’s the biggest out of all 3

 

Must be 18 or older to enter a a casino in Slovenia, ID for locals, and passport for tourists, is required.

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

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Slovenia?

Yes, both locals and tourists can visit the casinos in Slovenia, 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 Slovenia:

Casino licenses are issued by the Financial Administration of the Republic of Slovenia. You have to contact them if you wish to operate a casino or slot hall 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. Both the casino and slot halls limit has been reached, no further licenses are awarded.

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).

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.

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

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

This is a list of the 5 best rates and biggest casinos in Slovenia, 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., Perla Casino & Hotel
This is a picture of Perla Casino & Hotel, this is Slovenia's biggest casino currently, and it is also Europe's biggest casino at this time. This is the first element of this list of the top 5 best rated and biggest Slovenian casinos, you can find the other casino gambling establishments on this list below this one. You can read more about this gaming venue to the right of the picture.

Perla casino & hotel

Perla Casino & Hotel, address: Kidričeva ulica 7, 5000 Nova Gorica

Perla Casino is the biggest casino in Slovenia right now. Actually this is Europe’s biggest casino currently (in terms of number of games, you can see the games below). This is a big casino even by international standards.

/UPDATE 2022: City of Dreams in Cyprus is going to be a bigger casino. It will be Europe’s biggest casinos when it is completed, which is expected within 2 years./

The complex is part of the hit group, which owns the biggest Slovenian casinos, you will see the name pop up in this list multiple times.

As with most Slovenian casinos located on the border with Italy, this one is also primarily aimed at Italian tourists, although, because this is such a huge venue it attracts a diverse crowd of international travelers as well.

The casino is not that good looking, it’s really modern inside, but the exterior is uninspired (the building looks like a plain office building). Check the video below to check out how the casino looks like inside.

/Comment: I prefer the old and elegant European casinos in historic buildings much more, modern casinos do not ever come close to how those opulent, gilded, hundreds of years old European casinos in mansions, châteaus, castles, kurhauses look like. Nothing beats that./

According to hundreds of reviews online this is also the best rated casino in Slovenia.

 

Games: around 888 gaming machines (slots, video poker, older machines, from around 2010 mostly, a few new, 4d slots, and a few slots from obscure brands, above average selection), and around 90 tables (French Roulette, punto banco, blackjack, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Progressive Draw Poker, Double Deck Blackjack, American Roulette) + electronic roulette machines

There is an open-air slots section, with 90 gaming machines (pretty old models, not very good selection here) on the semi-open terrace at the bar. This is a fantastic idea, I wish more casinos would have these open air sections.

There is also a high-roller VIP slot area with 31 video slots, bets per spin up to €600. However, based on the pictures, the VIP area is nothing special, and the high limit machines look very old. They also have VIP tables for high rollers. Same tables as above, except bets are significantly higher. It’s only open on from 8.00 pm – 3.00 am every day, except Sunday, when it’s closed.

They also have a bingo room.

They also have a huge poker room with around 30 tables (Texas NL, Omaha Pot Limit, 7-card Stud, Hi-Lo, Crazy Pineapple, capable of seating 100+ poker players simultaneously), cash games every day. This is where the major international tournaments and big local tournaments are usually held in the country. You can find info about cash games and the online tournament schedule here.

 

Video of Perla Casino:

Despite the fact that this is Europe’s biggest casino, it has very little online presence and there are barely any videos of the place.

The video above depict their “arena” (Pulse Arena). “Arenas” are a fashionable new trend among the bigger and better casinos (most popular in Europe, in touristy areas). This combines party + gambling + live entertainment, it’s fast-paced and it’s a group activity.

It’s interesting , although, it’s not for the older 50+ crowd, because it’s really loud and it’s fast paced (also language barrier can be an issue).

/Comment: I personally don’t like it, more stress than fun, but with a group, after a few beers it’s probably a blast, I just don’t drink alcohol at all./

 

Opening hours: 24/7, table games are also 24//7

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no dress code, causal is fine, according to the official website:

“There is no dress code. However, neat clothing is recommended.  Shorts, flip-flops, and sportswear are not welcome.”

Entrance fee:

  • Monday – Thursday: free admission
  • Friday – Sunday, Italian holidays and days preceding holiday: € 5 per person

 

Meta review analysis: the casino gets stellar reviews, 4.5/5, this is the best rated Slovenian casino

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

2., Park, Hotel & Entertainment
This is a picture of Park, Hotel & Entertainment Casino in Slovenia. You can read more about the casino complex next to to the picture, including address, opening hours, number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, age requirement, address, reviews, and a video.

Park, Hotel & Entertainment

Park, Hotel & Entertainment, address: Delpinova ulica 5, 5000 Nova Gorica

Park, Hotel & Entertainment is part of the hit group, which owns the biggest Slovenian casinos.

Park is much more than just a casino, and to emphasize this they no longer call themselves Park Hotel & Casino.Regardless, their casinos is actually the second biggest in Slovenia.

They are also located next to the border with Italy, therefore you can expect many Italian tourists, and some Austrian tourists as well.

It’s a good casino, but there is nothing extra here, nothing special, nothing extraordinary here, e.g.: chocolate fountain in the middle of the gaming area, outdoor gaming terrace, money wheel (a..k.a. big six), pachinko machines from Japan, Pulse Gaming Arena like the one in Perla casino above, air hockey in the lounge or bar, champagne fountain in the VIP section, coin pushers and claw machines room, arcade section etc… IMO of course.

 

Games: around 435 gaming machines (slots, video poker, older slots, average selection, you can tell the casino is no longer their main focus), and around 20 tables (punto banco, blackjack, Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker, Progressive Draw Poker, American Roulette) + electronic roulette

There is also a high-roller VIP slot area with 26 video slots for for the “most discriminating players” (quoted from the official website), bets per spin up to €500. However, based on the pictures, the VIP area is nothing special, and the high limit machines look very old, just like in the Perla casino.

They also have a bingo room.

Despite this being the second biggest casino of Slovenia I couldn’t find any video of the casino section of the complex online. If you know of any please drop a link to it in the comments section. Thank you.

3., Aurora, Restaurant & Entertainment
This is a picture of the front entrance gate of Casino Aurora in Kobarid Slovenia. This is the third element on this list of the 5 best rated Slovenian land-based gambling establishments. You can read more about this Slovenia casino to the right of the picture.

Aurora, Restaurant & Entertainment

Aurora, Restaurant & Entertainment, address: Staro selo 60a, 5222 Kobarid

Another casino of the fantastic hit group (3 out of the 5 casinos on this list of the TOP 5 Slovenian casinos belong to this group, they are the best casino company of Slovenia).

And just like the other two venues of HIT, they no longer have the word ‘casino’ in the name.

There are two main reasons for this:

  1. the preferences of the visiting tourists changed, there is now more emphasis on entertainment, and other additional hospitality, catering services beside gambling,
  2. it’s sort of a PR strategy, the government is usually very anti-gambling, and has a very shallow, surface level understanding of gambling and casinos (not just in Slovenia, their idea of what a casino is comes from movies, most people who make decision about the gambling sector have never even been in a casino their entire life…), and this way they avoid some of their negative attention and politically motivated attacks.

 

However, these are not necessarily reflective of their revenue, gambling is probably still their biggest source of income.

 

Games: around 224 gaming machines (slots, video poker), and around 5 tables (1 blackjack, 1 Double Deck Blackjack, 1 Progressive Draw Poker, 2 American Roulette) + electronic roulette

They have a open air gaming terrace with 31 slot machines (smoker).

They also have a bingo room.

4., Grand Casino Portorož
This is a picture of the front gate of Grand Casino Portorož. This is Slovenia's oldest casino, in operation since 1913. You can read more about this casino to the right of the picture.

Grand Casino Portorož

Grand Casino Portorož, address: Obala 75a, 6320 Portorož (Portorose)

Slovenia’s oldest casino, established in the 1913 when Portorož was the rest town of the Austria-Hungary. The casino predates Yugoslavia, and for long time this was the only casino on the territory of Slovenia.

For a long time only tourists were allowed to enter, locals were forbidden to play in the casino. Obviously that’s not the case nowadays (they ended this practice gradually between 1991 – 1995).

The complex was fully renovated, partially rebuilt and extended in 2012. Now it is a hotel, resort, entertainment and casino complex.

Even though the casino section of the complex is somewhat small compared to the new, modern, big casinos of Slovenia, it gets the fourth place on the list because of its historic importance.

You can see below what Slovenia’s oldest still in operation casino has to offer nowadays.

 

This is a picture of how Grand Casino Portorož looked like back in 1913, prior to the renovation. This is a coloured originally black ans white photograph. You can read more about Slovenia's oldest casino above and below the picture, you can find the address, opening hours, dress code, entrance fee, age requirement, and a video of the venue on this page.

Grand Casino Portorož circa 1913

 

Fun fact: This is a picture of how the casino looked like back in 1913, you can’t even tell this is a casino. The building was called Villa San Lorenzo, and it acted as a casino + private club (invitation only) of the nobility and the rich and powerful men of the era (women were not allowed inside).

The casino is owned by Casino Portorož d.d., which also owns Casino Lipica, and it also operates an online casino since 2016 (the first and so far only licensed Slovenian digital casino platform).

 

Games: around 251 gaming machines (slots, video poker), and around 40 tables (blackjack, French Roulette, Caribbean Poker, Chemin de fer*, Midi Punto Banco, Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker, American Roulette)

They also have a bingo room, The Super Bingo is worth € 30,000+. Draws every day: Monday to Thursday & Sunday at 10 pm, Friday & Saturday at 11 pm.

 

*Chemin de Fer explanation, how to play: Chemin de fer is basically multiplayer baccarat, players bet one at a time, against each other, instead of the house. Baccarat evolved from this, which is more fast paced, players don’t have to wait for other players, instead they can play against the house any time (and it can be played with any number of players).

Great with friends because and it’s easy to learn, give it a try if you visit. If you know how to play baccarat you will have no problem with Chemin de Fer.

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!
