The local legal framework has enabled the Czech casino industry to blossom. The Czech Republic is one of the few countries in the world where all online casino games are legal and allowed.
There are a few caveats to the Czech gambling regulations, however. For instance, the servers used to organize casino games must be located in the EU. As long as the company is in another EU member state, it's allowed in the Czech Republic.
In addition to a presence in the EU, all new online casinos in the Czech Republic must obtain a basic license from the Ministry of Finance. Without a basic license, the casino can't offer any games to Czech gamblers. The Ministry of Finance can even block the casino site. If someone still tries to organize casino games without a basic license, they may be subject to a huge fine that may be up to 2 million euros.
New Czech online casinos follow strict rules when it comes to responsible gambling principles, too. All Czech players must pass a verification, which entails a complete identity checkup to verify the players’ age. No one under the age of 18 can enter Czech casino sites. These Know Your Customer rules and other responsible gambling principles are similar to other new casinos elsewhere in the world.
