Notes

Online gambling in Slovenia must be operated by land-based operators that already have a concession for a casino or existing classic lottery games. As a result of this requirement, the only entities eligible to apply for an online licence are Slovenia’s two lottery operators as well as the casino concessionaires. Criminal sanctions of up to three years’ imprisonment (or eight years where substantial sums are involved) apply in respect of any person who either organises, participates or assists with organising online games of chance.
