Illegal gambling on the Internet will be fought in Slovakia
After various gambling web-sites have been actively blocked in Poland, another country decided to take over – Slovakia. At the moment all illegal gambling Internet resources are being fought on the territory of this country.
In a couple of days, on July 17, to be precise, the official Financial Administration will issue a list of all web-sites with games and gambling themes that are prohibited in Slovakia. The trial of the web-sites began at the end of this month, right after the new updated legislation was approved and accepted in Slovakia, part of which affects online gambling.
As Radko Kuru, Finance Ministry State Secretary, has noted, the global international market that includes slots and other gambling products has been modernized at a confident accelerated pace in recent years. The current legislation of the country managed to react to the processes of growing influence and diversity of gambling games on the Internet, as well as set renewed goals to control online casinos.
It has also been stated that financial administration will look for all Internet resources with gambling games that break the law to block them at short notice and stop their activity on the Internet. All sites that in some form or another break the law will be blacklisted. The list will include web-sites that somehow don’t comply with the current legislation of the country.
And we shall note that yet in February of this year it was officially stated that the whole gambling industry was officially prohibited in the capital of Slovakia. At least, 136 thousand citizens and 45 members of the council voted for complete ban of such gambling establishments.
