State failing to collect fines for unauthorised online gambling

Since the new gambling law went into effect in 2017, the Finance Ministry has imposed fines against online operators totalling 455 million crowns but collected only a fraction of that amount – just 240,000 crowns – the daily E15 reports.

In most cases, sanctions were imposed for operating a site without authorisation. According to the NMS monitoring centre for drugs and dependences, more than 500,000 people in the CR have a gambling problem.
