Greek gambling industry in the views of leading operator, Betano-Stoiximan, at Prague Gaming Summit 2020
Greek Gambling Reforms explained by leading local operator at Prague Gaming Summit 2020.
Greece is finally ready to introduce gambling reforms that would re-allow the entry of online gambling operators to the market, eight years after they booted them out for the state monopoly OPAP in 2012.
The new regulations have been blocked in the past by Greece’s refusal to abide by EU laws throughout the past decade. When the Greek Ministry of Finance finally acceded to the rules of the European Commission in December 2019, the possibility for new gambling reforms emerged again.
There will be a standstill period for the rules to take effect and this will be until April 1. Greece will allow the 24 operators who obtained licenses in 2011 to carry on their operations until March 31, 2020, which is when they will have to reapply under the new regulatory regime.
