Czech Trade Association Spelos Becomes a member of Euromat (2015/12/29)

November 2015 the Czech Trade Association Spelos became the 19th member of the Pan-European body Euromat.  “We are pleased that we have become a member of this important organization.  The main objective of our cooperation is to regulate the online lottery, an area which is favoured over traditional land-based operators,” said Petr Vrzan, president of Spelos.  “At the same time, we intend to pursue the setting of reasonable and non-discriminatory taxation, all in cooperation with national regulators.  We consider it necessary to take a responsible approach to solving regulatory issues and lotteries, as is customary for the entertainment industry in most European countries.”

The Czech land-based gambling industry is suffering as a result of a proposed crackdown on the proliferation of gambling.  Back in August, the government announced it would remove gaming machines from restaurants and pubs, outlaw 24-hour gaming arcades and implement forced breaks for gamblers.

In addition, it planned to set tax rates at 25 per cent for gaming machines, 30 per cent for lottery and bingo games, while sports betting would be subject to a 25 per cent tax.  In 2014, there were an estimated 5,400 establishments that offered some sort of gambling-pub with slot machines, for example- and almost 570 casinos.  At its peak in 2011, the number of gambling machines in the Czech Republic was 102,000.  It has since declined significantly, but at the end of last year the number stood at 67,000.
