Slovenian gambling market: new bill towards regulation gets rejected

19 Apr 2018

Slovenia gambling marketAll hopes towards a regulated gambling market in Slovenia have died after the new online gaming bill was turned down due to a limited number of votes. All Members of Parliament in favor of the bill emphasized the lack of regulated Slovenian sites to support their view, also mentioning that a great number of players resort to unlicensed sites for online gaming purposes. As promising as the bill originally started out, with 35 MPs voting in favor and 26 against it in the National Assembly, it didn't manage to get enough people to support it in the end.

The final result came down to 18 legislators not approving and 12 giving a thumbs up out of a total of 30 votes. This meant the end of the promising plan towards a white sports betting and online gambling market in Slovenia, which would change the landscape along with the monopoly of Sportna Loterija, that currently controls the largest share of the market.

MP Branko Zorman has been fighting for the correct regulation of the Slovenian market since January 2017, repeatedly pointing out that the country is losing 85% of sports betting and online gaming revenue to foreign operators. He has also mentioned how all profits from licensed foreign betting and gambling companies would generate significant revenues in the form of taxes. A good example of that would be the license fee Zorman suggested which amounts to €500,000 per year.
